THE LATEST GATHERING
So frost-nibbin close! I mean, everything just seemed to be going so smoothly! You could totally see it on everyone's faces. So close, and yet so far! Feels like all of the recent commotion has stirred up more than we'd originally thought, eh kittens? Without any delay, let's get right down to the juicy bits, hm?
Well, it looks like Doestar's down with a fever! Goodness gracious me, I hope everything's alright in ThunderClan's part of the forest, but I'd like to think good old Gorsetalon held his own. What a strappin' good-looking tom, am I right? Anyway, just about everyone seemed to have it pretty smooth. There's some new kits in the forest, which is always wonderful to hear. Greenleaf's treating all the Clans well, and there were so many new apprentices and warriors to think of! It felt, for just a moment, like the forest was beginning to heal from all the awful happenings. Looks like that little taste of war at Sunningrocks may have scared the leaders off from conflict for good!
But... then again, who knows what will happen? 'Cause we definitely didn't see what happened next coming!
Sheepleap, that sweet old gal from WindClan, actually came up onto the Great Rock at the end of the Gathering to propose a new code change! For medicine cats! Can you believe the audacity of the old girl to propose that medicine cats should be allowed to take mates and have families? Everyone seemed pretty divided up over it, and Grassstar herself didn't look too happy at all. Plus, it was let slip that, perhaps, Sheepleap asked for such a chance because she wanted to be with Cloverstep of ShadowClan! The scandal! Vulturestar seemed fair tight-lipped about it, and the other representatives certainly didn't know what to do with this information.
I mean, do any of us, really?
My goodness, kittens, it just gives me shivers! The Gathering ended soon after that, with Grassstar ushering Sheepleap off, and the rest of the Clans left in somewhat of a tizzy. Everyone seemed to have their own opinions on the subject, many even divided within their own Clans! Love's such a mysterious force, don't you think? Either way, until next time!

ROLEPLAY CURRENT EVENTS
As the tempo begins to pick back up, keep an eye and ear out for some fun events over the next two weeks up until our next Gathering! There will be some big changes and fun events coming up, so pay attention!~
☛ At this past Gathering, Vulturestar mentioned a potential rat problem growing within ShadowClan's borders. Curious to see how that will play out? Make sure to keep an ear out for events related to this escalating mini-plot!
☛ For WindClan and SkyClan, there will be two cataclysmic cause-and-effect events happening on Friday, August 11th beginning around 6 p.m. EST! More information can be found on these events below. In addition, don't think you're out of luck, RiverClan and ThunderClan! These events will also indirectly be effecting you, as well.
☛ Cross-clan border patrols will likely be more and more frequent in the coming weeks, so be sure to catch the occasional spur-of-the-moment arranged meetups between Clans!
☛ Everyone has been feeling the sudden disappearance of StarClan. But, for select members who are active and have proven (or are promising as new members) their inclination to get involved, there may be whispers of secrets and brief visions for the cats of the Clans to discover. High ranks and staff will be coordinating such surprises. Show up regularly and participate, and you'll get to see what the hubbub is about!
THIS MOON'S THEME
Overpowering change. There has been more push for change within the past ten moons of the forest than there has been in generations. Will these sudden pushes perhaps... tip a balance?
This Moon's Themesong:
"Nero" by Two Steps from Hell
"Nero" by Two Steps from Hell
☛ Curious whispers. As mentioned above, there are some curious sightings to be seen and heard. Go on patrols and interact with Clanmates to get a chance for something!
☛ Border meetups. Please don't make us regret promoting this, but please feel free to whisper and message your leaders for some 1-1, 2-2, etc. border meetups between the Clans! However, if a leader says no or does not respond, do not proceeed. We have to be aware of and control what's going on. But we think it's time that interactions happen a little more often amongst the Clans!
☛ Bonding. Is there a particular cat you have your eye on? Some Clanmates you've always wanted to interact with? You may want to get those personal relationships going soon, for who knows what could possibly threaten it down the line?
☛ Herb collecting. It's a repeat from last moon, but hey! Never know when those herbs might come in handy, hm? Medicine cats, don't be afraid to send warriors and apprentices out in search of precious healing herbs, yes?
At very, very, very long last, TFA has chosen a host of Clan helpers! We know it's been ages and that many thought we forgot, but we're finally in a place to facilitate the taking on of these new staff members. The helpers will be in charge of helping monitor in-game activities and rulebreaking and facilitating the big events. These members have proven to be active, loyal, and just amazing all around. We would like to congratulate Pkf4, Viperther, Keziah, and Paquinnie and welcome you guys to the OOC staffing team! We will be in contact shortly and the sidebar will eventually be amended to reflect these changes.
ShadowClan's medicine cat apprentice was chosen! Congratulations to Beachhouse7 and Batkit! Do ShadowClan proud, yes?
TFA would also like to announce that we'd like to begin hosting some OOC activities! The amazing and helpful Snakepaw has been given charge of these events. Keep an eye out in our Discord server regarding announcements for movie streams, game nights, etc.! We've received word that there may even be a movie steam for us to enjoy this weekend! Keep an ear out.
We've received suggestions that maps of Clan camps and the map in general would be helpful. We've heard you! Please keep an eye out for these maps within the next week or two.
THE BIG EVENT: PURGE OR PUNISHMENT?
Ladies and gentlemen, there will be a pretty big event this weekend! We know that school is about to pick up for a lot of people, and we'd like to end a lot of folks' summer with a bang, as it were! While we won't be giving away many details, it would behoove you to be online on Friday, August 11th at about 6 p.m. EST!
HOWEVER, this will be a multi-part event, and not every Clan will be directly effected. If you are in WindClan or SkyClan, there will be big events that will directly affect you! WindClan's event will be beginning at around 6 EST, while SkyClan's will happen just a little while later at about 6:30 EST. From there, the events will spread to RiverClan and ThunderClan a while after that! So if you can't be online right at 6, don't fret unless you're a moor cat, yes? If you want to witness the entire thing, be sure to be online, though! And ShadowClan, don't think we forgot about you! In the coming days after this event, you will get to make some horrific discoveries. In a way, the entire forest will be effected by these events the night of! Staff will help guide you and your characters through it as these events transpire.
Pleasure giving you an update, lovelies. Our next Gathering will take place on: Saturday, August 19th. Things are going to get a little exciting, and we can't wait to move forward with all of you!
