What's that? The sun's shining? There's birds in the trees? Everything has leaves and its hot af? You heard it here first! Green-leaf has smashed face-first into the island and things are heating up! Except for all of the flood water. Womp womp. Everyone's gonna be wearing little pool floaties forever ;) This month, we got a fun new Gathering format, Cultural Crafting Contest Voting, and brand new Announcements chalk full of some cool site updates! So go check it out and soak it up!
The Apostles is a warrior cats roleplay based in northern Wisconsin. On Lake Superior, the wild cats have made the Apostle Islands their home. It is on these islands - Rocky Island and South Twin Island - that the clan and tribe cats have lived in a peace and harmony that ebbs and flows with the tide.
But as the tides turn, so does the truce that binds them to one another; and as the water raises, a darkness follows, an evil that will end in bloodshed and violence.
Beneath a canopy of white pines and balsam firs, ThistlecClan warriors claim a small vale as their home. It is almost impenetrable due to its protective barrier, a wall reinforced with thorny undergrowth and thick bramble. Various moss-covered rocks rest inside its walls. Underneath, the Clan cats have exhumed a labyrinth of nests and dens. At its crown, the leader addresses the clan from the Fallen Pine, the tree which leaders have addressed the clan from for seasons. Near the fallen pine, a large burrow juts from the earth, which is where the ThistleClan leader nests.
Although independent by nature, ThistleClan still has a communal nursery. This nursery is burrowed in the center of the warrior dens, protected on all sides by thorny brambles. Some mothers chose to nurse and raise their kits in their own personal den rather than the communal nursery, and those who do decide to use the spacious burrow, often sequester themselves from the other nursing queens and kits.
Dug into the earth, ThistleClan's medicine cat den is an elaborate underground burrow, consisting of three separate chambers. With a narrow entrance, the den opens up into its largest chamber, where the ill or injured wait to be examined. On the back wall, their herbs are neatly organized into dug out holes. The second chamber, connected to the first through a tunnel, is where the medicine cats nest together, and connected to their den is the final and third chamber. Water cascades down the back wall and collects at the bottom. Here the more seriously injured stay.
