Teaselstar called for a peace summit at the latest Gathering, after it was revealed that even the sagacious medicine cats were at arms with one another! Will this finally put an end to the tensions boiling in the forest?

The Forest Awakens Leaf-fall Map has been released! Be sure to download it so you can admire the changing trees! Actually, there's more than just the trees changing now, isn't there?
◆ 09.18.2017 →
The Reckoning of the Stars at the last Gathering left an explosive impact on the forest -- what side will your characters choose? The traditionalists, the revolutionists, or the neutral party? The forest's fate rests in your paws now.
no expletives and/or swears - no sensitive topics - no spam
Leaf-fall has just begun, with the leaves in the forest beginning to darken and fall to the forest floor in a variety of rich, amber hues. The temperature ranges between 15-23°C.
Land-based prey no longer seeks cover from the harsh sun, but as the temperature cools and more leaves crowd the earth, prey begins to dwindle slightly. It's time to stock up!
Herbs that withered during the scorching Greenleaf have a small interim to heal, under a medicine cat's watchful eye. However, plants doting on warmth begin to blacken as cold seeps into the forest.
next clan event → ask your clan's leader

next med. gathering → 09/23/17 at 7pm EST
what's happening in the forest?
The Clan is left reeling after Thicketberry's attack and eminent demotion. Left scrambling by the abrupt loss of four of their warriors, ThunderClan is working to regain order once again.
The scent of blood and herbs never mix very well. After Cloverstep arrives at the gathering beaten up, Frostpaw announces it was Thicketberry to blame for the ShadowClan medicine cat's attack.
Tension rises widly between the two neighboring Clans. Will herbs be enough to pay for the disturbance?
As WindClan continues to repair their burnt home, division among the Clan is extreme. Many mouths call for revolution, while others demand tradition. How will WindClan keep itself together?
The salmon run has left the fresh-kill pile standing tall; perhaps a good omen for RiverClan? But issues along the borders begin to rise, as tensions and different beliefs conflict along the riverside.
Now settled, SkyClan struggles with its innate moral compass-- tradition, or revolution? Clashing thoughts and hearts, and even confrontations spark the need for Teaselstar's peace summit.
if you need help or need to make a report, don't be afraid to message one of them!

the forest awakens warrior names
The Forest Awakens
Naming Your Warrior
realism; in order to be accepted, you must have a name that is considered per warrior standards. It is fairly easy to pick a realistic name, as there are many, many options to choose from, actually.
environment; seeing as in this genre of Warriors, the four classical Clans are placed in the old forest territory, in Great Britain. That being said, plants and animals not found in the forest of England cannot be accepted - as they have limited knowledge of animals and plants beyond their territories.
For example, you won't find a kangaroo or a black panther in the UK, especially not in the forest territories! The only cases of exotic animals would be "Lion-," "Tiger-", and "Leopard-", deriving from mythical Clan tales.
We do have some general rules regarding the naming of your character! You are by no means limited to this naming guide, but all we ask is that you abide by our realistic guidelines to maintain a feasible Warriors environment!
A leader has every right to reject a name. If you believe that your name is completely plausible, please do approach a member of Staff and inquire about your name. If it is still rejected, then you will be asked to change it.
Names such as "Blood-", "Death-" and "Soul-" are never to be permitted, at any costs. If anything, cats would heavily frown upon a mother for naming their kit something so sensitively awful.
The prefixes "Moon-" and "Star-" have been banned for the sake of keeping the Clan's beliefs sacred, in terms of the Moonstone and StarClan. No mother should be so audacious as to name her kit after something so almighty and all-knowing. "Sun-", however, is permitted.
Additionally, "Thunder-", "Shadow-", "Wind-", "River-" and "Sky-" are sacred, and cannot be used as prefixes. However, they may be used as a suffix of honor.

Andy Dandy: Do you have discord? It might be easier to reach help there
Sept 16, 2017 9:21:37 GMT -5
Andy Dandy: but make sure you're on OpenGL
Sept 16, 2017 9:22:07 GMT -5
Andy Dandy: if you dont know how to do that, go into your FeralHeart options, click Video, and click Rendering system, then switch from Direct3D9 to OpenGL.
Sept 16, 2017 9:24:42 GMT -5
Andy Dandy: if you're already on OpenGL, that means you'll have to delete some files. I think there's a guide somewhere on the site that will say what are best to delete.
