Let's get started.
The Barren Lands
Originally it was another website. Nowadays? Not so much. In fact, the website was recently shut down. The Barren Lands was the website where Tribes and Moonclan, as well as RP-able rats and foxes existed.
"But what about Moonclan? And what are these Tribes you mention?"
Glad you asked!
Before shutting down the Barren Lands, I moved the territories of the Barren Lands to our very own Distant Lands!
Now, the Tribes currently don't have any members - I'm not sure if I can get the original members (which were few) to join up and RP some of those charries. If I can, and 8 others can commit, then the Tribes will be open to all!
As for Moonclan - it's a Main Clan! You can join!The Story of the TribesNot too long after the defeat of the Clans of Legend, the Tribe of Rushing Water had a mountain lion problem. With no Clan cats to fulfill a prophecy, the Tribe turned on itself and its Stoneteller. One section broke off and fled, the original Tribe following shortly after the inevitable death of their Stoneteller.
The section of the Tribe that broke off changed some of their traditions and names for certain positions, wishing to rid themselves of what they considered to be a faulty chain of command.
In the end, though, it was just the names that changed. They formed their own Tribe, the Tribe of Burning Streams. The name came from the drowning of the rebellion's leader, Burnsky. (Differences in tradition and names can be found here: How They're Different)
As for the main Tribe, they found themselves in a long, abandoned two-leg den (this being an abandoned mine). In the tradition of naming the Tribe after it's location, the Tribe of Rushing Water became the Tribe of Raining Dust.
The Tribes are near each other, and sometimes meet up in a form of Gathering, Moonclan sometimes joining them.
A very basic story: When Abyssclan came out of the City and were seeking a territory, they thought Moonclan's hill would suit them just fine. In a skilled ambush, they killed many Moonclanners and drove the rest out. Moonclan, being a very proud Clan, refused to ask the other Clans for help and left in the cover of darkness, fleeing over the mountains until reaching the Barren Lands. They've been there ever since.
Now, the Questers are on their way to retrieve them.
YES, all Moonclan leadership positions are taken. The Kingdom of the Rats
The Quarantine Zone was once a medical facility. They tested many of their products on rats. Think NIMH. The rats that escaped became more intelligent than your average rat and they formed a Kingdom. They are The Firestone Court.
Any person can join - there are few rats.
But FIRST: more activity everywhere else!The Foxians
We have wolves - the Barren Lands had foxes. There are currently no members of this unlikely fox pack, but their would-be territory is close to the Barren Lands, in the far-reaching twisted forest beyond Searclan and Coreclan territory.
In Distant Lands, this is The Lonely Lands
(description in progress).In short, the new territories of the Distant Lands are:
The Barren Lands - sub-boards, The Tribes, Moonclan, The Kingdom of the Rats.
Quarantine Zone - sub-boards, Two-Leg Facility
The Lonely Lands - sub-boards, Tangled Hollow
Gray Sky Stones - sub-boards, NONE
Please be aware most of these are a work in progress, and each of these territories are a very long ways away from the Clans we know.
Most likely, the Distant Lands will be split into boards such as 'to the far East' and 'to the far West' - such like that. Site-Wide Plot
While we've hit a slight lull, rest assured, we're gonna try to complete the big plot and bring it to all of you in the form of a territories-wide battle by Christmas
! In RP time, by the next Gathering!
The main group of cats called away by a strange force have split into four groups! Alas, it seems only one group will be reaching the Barren Lands, as one group is still stuck in Darkclan, another in the Frost Forests, and another on the South-east side of the Mountains of Dust, where the Dwellers live.
