Winter hovers on the horizon like a constant reminder -- a reminder that all cycles will eventually come to an end -- and with this comes the end of peace on the island.
Lichenclan has declared war with Redwoodclan over the Mooncave territory. Both clans refuse to surrender to one another, and thus merciless bloodshed will follow them like a shadow. While Thisteclan -- severed from the conflict by the sandy creek -- continues their own perils with an increase in rogue and loner activity within their borders. The added threats to each clan will only make the forthcoming winter worse.
Across the lake, the island tribe has succumbed to a deadly unnamed diseased. Only a few tribe members remain uninfected, and a cure has yet to be discovered.
CLAN & TRIBE PLOTS
The redwood forest has been indoctrinated into a war they do not fully support. Lichenclan has declared their desire to extend their territory to the entirety of the Mooncave. While Redwoodclan does not want to risk further bloodshed, they also do not believe that Lichenclan is the only sacred clan in the forest. The redwood warriors believes that all cats on the island deserve to enter the Mooncave. To prepare for the war, Finchstar has increased battle training sessions and border patrols along the southern cliffs. Due to the weather, the clan has also noticed a decrease in prey.
The white pine forest warriors have a noticed a peculiar increase in rogue and loner activity within their borders. Thievingstar has increased border patrols accordingly. While the other clans have been occupied with their conflict, the Thistleclan warriors have chosen to remain neutral on the issue. The conflict -- as of now -- has not affected them by any means, so they will continue to be impartial. Similar to the redwood forest, the white pine forest has also noticed a decrease in prey due to the cold weather.
The sea cave dwellers are confident in their battle prowess. Minnowstar is convinced that they will be able to win the entirety of the Mooncave with ease. She believes that Lichenclan was chosen by Starclan to protect and govern their sacred lands. However, not all Lichenclan warriors feel the same. This had led to an increase in inner clan conflict. Some fully support Minnowstar and her endeavors to rule the Mooncave, while others believe she is insane. Regardless, Minnowstar has increased battle lessons and border patrols as well. The sea caves have not experienced a similar decrease in prey, since the lake remains unfrozen, and the clan can fish from the sandy creek.
The floating island has succumbed to an unnamed infectious disease. Most of the tribe members have fallen ill, and only a few remain uninfected. This has put a great strain on the island cats; since the sick are too feeble to perform their regular tribe duties, while the healthy are exhausted from caring for the diseased. Creek has been unable to find a cure for the sickness due to the recent frosts and his own health. Likewise, the tribe is slowly becoming weaker due to their overall lack of prey and resources.
