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.

The bulk of ThunderClan's territory is this: deciduous forest, filled with oaks and maples and sycamores, and covered at ground level with undergrowth. Light reaches the forest floor with ease, contrasting with the dark and murky woods of ShadowClan. Cats must be stealthy to hunt here without the flora alerting their prey to their presence, and ThunderClanners are taught from an early age to move silently through the trees. They are also skilled climbers, sometimes hunting from the trees. Birds, mice, and squirrels are some of the most common prey species hunted here. The abundance of life also attracts predators, though, and foxes, martens, badgers, and bears are fairly common sights as well.

The Wishing Tree is a relatively skinny and small tree, but it has a small quirk in the form of a rounded out hollow at its base that cats have taken to calling the Wishing Hole. It might be silly kit-tales, but for generations cats have been depositing small treasures into the tree and whispering a wish inside. Many claim that theirs have come true, but quite frankly many are skeptical. Regardless, the trinkets and treasures almost always seem to disappear. Some think it’s StarClan, some a mean cats playing a trick, but just as many simply think birds or squirrels are just as likely to be stealing the treasures away.

The fern gully runs through ThunderClan’s forest and across the border into RiverClan. As the name implies the walls of the gully, roughly ten feet high, are covered completely in various species of ferns during all seasons but leaf-bare. The floor of the gully is rocky sand with a shallow creek that forms during particularly rainy times of the year. It never gets deep (barring a flash flood), but does attract prey and predators to the area. The gully is often lined with debris of various sorts—typically fallen trees and logs—which provide shelters for cats and prey as well as create obstacles and potential dangers. Being the gully goes through two territories cats must be on alert to watch they don’t cross into neighboring territory and be vigilant of intruders.

The rock formation, called Hollow Rock, is in a small clearing in ThunderClan’s forest. It’s unknown if the rock is two-leg made or natural, but ThunderClan affectionately tells the story of a of a cat named Moleclaw who is fabled to have carved the rock hollow himself so he and his lover, believed to be clanless, could meet in private. The rock is indeed hollow with a small open cavern in the inside and a tunnel that goes clean through to the other side. Apprentices and warriors alike like to play in and on the rock, and it’s common practice for apprentices to whisper secrets through the tunnel to their friends on the other end of the hole.

This field of dandelion plants grows on a hillside in ThunderClan's territory near the farm. When the plants first begin to flower, the hill is a sea of yellow. Once the dandelions are pollinated, they turn into white fluff that flies away on the breeze. Though the area has little to no protection from the sun or overhead predators, the meadow attracts many species of small rodents and other prey. The flowers can also be used by medicine cats as a painkiller.

A lake that resides half within ThunderClan’s border with a small abandoned cabin on a cleared section of shoreline. The clan cats, whether they like swimming or not, frequent the rea for different reasons. The small beach gives cats safe and easy access to the water if they desire, a pile of old two-leg junk promises to hold treasures for those willing to search, the docks provide a good sunning spot, and the cabin itself holds treasures and a thick colony of mice and bats to hunt. The cabin is noticeably tilted from rot and old age, but the building seems sound enough to venture into. Two-legs haven’t lived here in a long time, but occasionally kids from the nearby farm come out to explore.

Found a short swim off of the lake’s shoreline, this small island is generally left alone by the forest-dwelling cats. Its banks are riddled with shrubs, and a small thicket of assorted trees provides cover for hidden dealings and secret affairs. When the lake gives off steam, or when fog settles in, the island is said to disappear completely. Those few who have the skill or bravery to swim over will find young waterfowl hiding among the overhanging vegetation, as well as an assortment of herbs. It’s also the perfect nesting ground for large birds of prey, and an abandoned eagle nest lays on the bough of the largest aspen.

Monsters have to go somewhere to die, too, and in this case its ThunderClan’s back yard. A pile of old, broken, and rusted farm equipment is periodically abandoned at the end of the sheep fields. It’s an eyes sore to be sure, but not wholly useless. Cats like to make up stories about the monsters coming to life to scare one another, and those with courage like to climb all over the equipment to get a better view of the sheep from a safe distance. The area, grassy with the forest nearby, provides great hunting for rodents and small birds.

The part of ThunderClan territory nearest to WindClan, the sheep fields are both a delight and a danger. They are part of an actively operating farm, and there is always the potential to see a monster of one kind or another; dogs are used to herd the sheep sometimes and while they are well trained and generally do not bother cats who keep themselves out of the way, nobody's perfect. The sheep stampede when they are sufficiently spooked, and though they are otherwise gentle and do not mind cats hunting rabbits or rodents in the pastures where they graze, their collective mass as a herd will crush any cat in their way. Wolves are rarely a problem here as they are afraid of humans, but coyotes have been known to go after a sheep when they have a large enough group, posing a danger to cats as well. There are reasons to visit these fields other than hunting, however; the sheep's presence allows certain herbs to spread and grow plentifully here, and for the more aesthetically-minded, the land itself is just beautiful.
