ABOUT

Welcome to Deep in the Meadow, a literate semi-AU Warrior cats roleplay site with a 200 word minimum. DitM features a sandbox play style, a stat system for character development, staff-run NPC accounts for events and encounters, and an overarching political landscape to help structure characters and interactions. Territories are refreshed, but will remain familiar to Warriors RPers. Play as a member of the four Clans or as a Clanless cat - and enjoy!

SITE NEWS

UPDATES - 01/19/18 An activity check is up here. It will run until Tuesday the 30th of January.

UPDATES - 01/17/18 In light of our near every-clan-wide ban/discouragement on apprentices staff wanted to address a few matters. We all know and can relate to the fact that training threads can get boring quickly, but we want to remind users that they don’t need to be the same old things over and over and over again; training threads can be fun, and the concepts that apply to being a warrior can be presented in fun and new ways. Linked are some threads that staff have themselves participated in that demonstrate a wide variety of different directions to tackle training threads from that range from puzzle solving, critical thinking, assassination attempts, games, and even role playing (patrols and the like can count as training threads too). 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. If you want to request a flash event you can ask a staff member or purchase one in the shop, and if you need help brainstorming ideas ask on our discord—we’re a collection of creative folk and we can certainly help one another out. In keeping training threads interesting and fun we hope to get more people signing up to do mentor.

In the same stroke we staff have also noticed a trend in that some sign their apprentices up for mentors, ask for training threads, but then never respond to them (or take months), and in the end end up purchasing apprentice passes for their apprentices to get their names on time. Going forward staff will request you skip signing up for a mentor (you can npc one instead) and just purchase the apprentice pass to save desperately needed mentors for those who will participate and complete training threads so we aren’t wasting mentors/time.

UPDATES - 01/16/18 Starvation Notices have officially gone out in ThunderClan. To prevent more, and to prevent those who have received them from worsening, get your cats out in patrols and hunting! WindClan, not far behind ThunderClan, is officially on notice of starvation, too. Don't be like ThunderClan and put off hunting threads until it's too late.

UPDATES - 01/10/18 Staff has made a slight rule change. You can find this change noted on Rule #17 on the rule sheet, and explained in more depth on the bio guide (specifically the 'history' post, which is linked in Rule #17). Direct any questions to staff. Please make sure to read this update.

UPDATES - 01/09/18 Update concerning clans and clanless cats claiming and challenging for territory. Read about that here. As our largest clan on site we're officially giving ThunderClan a starvation warning. No one is starving quite yet, but they have rumbling bellies and an empty fresh-kill pile more often than not. Get out hunting, and not just on your own territory, ThunderClan, or risk finding starvation and illness notifications in your PMs ;D

UPDATES - 01/02/18 Happy New Year! We have a lot going on on site in terms of clan meeting and exciting, drama-filled going ons. Three of our clans have meetings up, and while two are further along than the third they are still in need of reactions to either help wrap them up, or to help their leader in making her decision. Give them a look: WC, RC, & SC. Once some of these big plot threads wrap up you can expect our next site gathering to get underway.

UPDATES - 12/27/17 There has been a change in DitM's staffing team as Cheshire has had to step away to tackle that thing we call life. You can read about that here. The staff team wishes Cheshire all the best, and a huge thank you for all they've done for the site! In light of how busy we still are we've promoted Yazsh, who has been helping the staff team already with mod stuff and flash event posts, to a full member of the staff team. Be sure to give the ma warm welcome and have patience with them as they learn the ropes! With Cheshire leaving that means Palefeather's and Graystar's plots are at a stand still, but since they are all sorts of tied up into the future of the site staff will be taking on the roles for at least a short while to keep things moving smoothly. Please direct all those character's plot questions to us. Rest assured we'll be working with Cheshire if we have questions, and the sand box environment, to see these through! Have patience with staff as well as we figure out what threads need to be done and get a handle on how to best play these characters. Thank you!

UPDATES - 12/24/17 A few days later than the set date, all accounts in the inactive category have been deleted. If that's you, you're welcome to rejoin at any time; staff can always pull things from the archives for you if you would like to remake characters. Just be aware that you may need to change names or face claims if they have been used in your absence.

UPDATES - 12/21/17 A happy Winter Solstice! Our season on site has been changed to Leaf-Bare. The staff team wishes happy holidays for those celebrating!

UPDATES - 12/06/17 The activity check is over and the site has been aged! Those members who did not respond or check in with staff have been moved to the inactive category and will be deleted on 12/20. If you were moved to inactive, just message a staff member with links to the items you need replaced and the accounts you need moved. For those of you still with us, please check characters' ages and active threads so you can claim any new stats. Please also check mentors & apprentices in case you have gotten a new mentor/become a mentor! Finally, many of us need to update our bios, at the very least to reflect name, rank, and sometimes Clan changes. If I have to call people out by name I will ;).

UPDATES - 11/29/17 We have an activity check going on! Link is here. Members have until December 5th to post. Please speak to staff if you don't think you'll be able to post by then. We are doing it a bit differently this time around so please be sure to read the post completely.

UPDATES - 11/15/17 A big thank you for all those who took the time to audition and show interest in ShadowClan deputy. After discussion between Rainbow & staff we congratulate Gillyflowerthroat (Mink) on getting the position. As promised if you have questions or desire tips in preparation for our next open high rank position you can send staff a PM or DM.

UPDATES - 11/09/17 New skin! Staff is still making tweaks to this top table potion (the link colors and navigation link colors) and to staff/site tables, but otherwise please let staff know if you still see any lingering green colors. A deadline has been set for ShadowClan deputy: Tuesday Nov. 14th. If you'd like to try out please send your auditions in before then, and if you think you will need more time be sure to let staff know.

UPDATES - 11/04/17 Auditions for ShadowClan deputy are now open. Audition form can be found in our high rank info board and all auditions should be sent to the staff team + Rainbow. A deadline will be set at a later date.

UPDATES - 11/02/17 Katzen has stepped back from the site and her role as ShadowClan's leader to focus on her senior year of college. To fill members in on what happened ICly with Vulturestar Rainbow has helpfully written a small AU you can read here.

Nickname: nope, don't go for it
Gender: Female

Occupation: Graduate Student

Cats on site: *points down at signature*
Favorite color: bluuuueeeeee
Spirit animal: a combination of Spock, Hermione, and this kitten

Hey hey hey, it's Hawk! As I say above, I'm a graduate student, and I'm in a PhD program for Rhetoric and Composition (under the more general umbrella of English). While rhetcomp is not at all about grammar, yes, you can ask me any grammar question and I will either know the answer or know where to find it. I've worked as a tutor for several years, mostly in writing but in other humanities subjects as well, and I've been teaching freshman composition for two and a half years now.

I'm super into most any kind of books, though beware that starting a discussion about Tolkien with me will certainly get you more than you bargained for. I'm a lot less of a fandom geek than I used to be, but I've been in a lot of the common ones at one point or another. Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Lord of the Rings endure 5ever. I'm currently doing the Game of Thrones thing. I love coffee and cooking/baking, and I'll happily share recipes & stuff.

Feel free to Discord message or PM me about anything at any time, or just to chat. I'm here to help in any way!

Contact Info:
  • Discord- find me on the site's server, linked above in the top table
  • Email- available through my profile

Not a super big fan about writing about myself so I will try to keep this short. I'm in my final year as a Ecology and Field Biologist (emphasis on Wildlife) major I am in fact a recent grad now! I did get my degree in Ecology and Field Biology (Wildlife Biology). No job yet (yay not good job market for my field) but those student loans have, ha! I switched majors a lot hence my "older" age for just finishing up my first degree. I tend to work at dog resorts and kennels during the summer months.

I'm easy going and like most things but seem to do a lot of hiking, reading, painting, consuming burritos and craft beers.

Feel free to skype me if you have questions, concerns, or just need an ear to yell at.

Hey there! So since you're here, you must want to know some stuff about the people on the staff team. Well, I'm not very good at talking about myself, but I'll give it a shot.

I work at my family's restaurant as a waitress (although my official title is "assistant manager," which sounds fancier than it actually is). I'm really into reading, writing, and cats if that wasn't obvious. I try to write short stories frequently in my spare time, and though I have tons and tons of novel ideas, I rarely get around to trying my hand at writing them. I'd love to become an editor or teacher (both?) someday, though I'm not sure when that'll be just yet.

I'm extremely passionate about animals - I've got three cats and two dogs. I am always taking pictures of them, and am always super eager to share said pictures - ask about them any time! My cat Bubba pretty much takes over my life, so I constantly talk about him and will happily share as many pictures as you can stand to see at any point. I speak spanish, but I'm way out of practice so I wouldn't really call myself fluent right now. I'm also kinda sorta learning dutch because why not? Most of my free time, however, is consumed by this website and my own pets, which is exactly how I like it!

Definitely send me a message if you want to talk or have any questions! Discord is the best way to reach me, but I'll eventually get back to you no matter how you choose to contact me.

Like Mink and Avie, I am not great at talking about myself. What counts as important or interesting and what's just TMI, y'know? Anyways, I'm gonna give it my best shot. Prepare yourself for my rambling.

Hello, friends! I am the newest bean to this incredible staff team (weeee, welcome, Yazsh!). I'm Monument, but feel free to call me any of the nicknames listed above or make one up. I am a college graduate. I am majored in Animal Science with a minor in Business. I currently work as a shop assistant at a dog boarding & grooming facility. Not sure if that's my endgame, or if I'm going to go on to "bigger and better" things at some point. I've done a lot of research to find out what kind of career will be the best fit for me, so wish me luck. <3

I love music, art and reading/writing, though I'm only any good with that last one. Theatre is another major love of mine, but I have a horrible fear of speaking in front of people, so I stayed in the sound booth doing lighting and sound during high school. Of course, I love animals (pretty much every kind sans the ones that can kill me with one bite/sting). I am slightly obsessed with Supernatural. I also like shows like Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, and basically any cooking show. On a mostly unrelated note, I may or may not misuse the strikethrough tag a bit. I definitely had to go back and edit this intro to cut some out whoops.

If you take a gander down at my signature, you'll see my precious children and several links to my things on here, including a list of Creative Commons photosets (which I try to keep updated, but I'm only one person please don't hate me).

If you need to contact me for whatever reason, please PM me or try one (or more) of these methods:

Contact Info:
  • Via private message

Name: Yazsh
Nickname: Yaaaaaaaaas
Gender: genderfluid (he/she/they)
Age: 25
Occupation: Graphic Designer and Illustrator
Location: North Carolina, USA (Eastern Standard Time)
Favorite color: blue

Hello, hello! I get to steal Monu's title of "newest bean to this incredible staff team." Roughly a year ago I joined DITM and I've been hooked ever since. I graduated college from an art school and have a degree in Communication Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design. For a little over two years I also studied Sequential Art as well. I've lived in Arizona, Montana, Colorado, Alaska, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and recently I moved to North Carolina.

I like long days sitting on the couch, noodles, dark chocolate, and cats. My favorite (safe) conversation topics are the warrior cat books, anime, in-depth astrology, video games, and technology. Hermione and Sebastian are my two dorky cats. I am the champion of typos, and I really should change my name to Edit. Making lame jokes is my game. Caps laughing is my favorite spam. I like my dumb catchphrases, but feel free to make fun of me. I also fall asleep during movie fight scenes.

Now that you've stolen my identity feel free to message me on Discord or PM me whenever for whatever. I'm here to help, but please be patient with me as I learn the ropes!

Contact Info:
  • Discord- Yazsh ☕#9721
  • Email- yazshgamoa@gmail.com
  • Cell number- staff only, but I respond faster to discord anyways
  • Other- extreme yodeling, preferably on a mountain top
