The fat and silver moon hangs like an eerie lantern in the dark sky, as a few storm clouds, heavy with snow, crest on the horizon. The air is brutally cold now that the fall season has come to an end, and the harsh snows of winter threaten the island with a bite.
For now the forest is blanketed with a fresh sheet of thin snow, and the water in the Sandy Creek has started to freeze near the riverbed. The trees are bare and skeletal, and the underbrush has turned its usual garish brown.
While the forest, like the bears, will hibernate for the winter, the waterfall will continue to thunder into the rocks; its waters too busy to freeze from the sudden cold.
It is here the three clans will meet under the full moon.
The redwood forest has lost its ancient allure, and instead, has succumbed to its seasonal slumber. While the white pine forest remains as vibrant as ever with its heavy green needles and sticky fir scent. The shoreline has softened into a gentle silence, as the migratory birds leave for the winter, and the lake calms into a soundless lull.
From a distance -- the island seems to have drawn its last breath.
However -- the three clans in the forest are as alive and as restless as ever. Redwoodclan and Lichenclan have declared war on one another, while Thistlelcan wrestles with their own demons.
The clouds remain in the distance -- but a cold wind blows from the east -- and soon the island will be shrouded in darkness.
Leaders from each clan will post first. Once the leader has posted, clan members can reply. The leaders will arrive at different time slots, so each clan can interact with one another before the clan leaders make their announcements.
When replying to the thread, make sure to tag only the member you are replying to -- not everyone in the thread needs to be tagged. This will hopefully alleviate the amount of notifications for the thread. When leaders make their announcements, we will notify members on the discord, so that important posts are not missed.
There is no time limit on the gathering. Since it will introduce the first major plot point in the side-wide plot. We want it to reach a narrative conclusion before it it locked and archived.
