    (This is play based partly on Erin Hunter's Series Warriors although there are major changes and similarities)

    High in the deep mountains of the north, long before the time of human inhabitants, there sat a cave undisturbed by the violent natural world. This cave and the surrounding lands were home to a few tribes of very special felines, winged felines, all descended from a single spontaneous mutant of feline blood. The three tribes that share the territory surrounding the peaks all carry the hallowed blood of the original winged cat called WindJumper in their veins. Over hundreds of years and through generations of various warriors and leaders, Windjumper's cave dwelling tribe called Jaggedtribe has developed a very tight structure of rank and position including a leader, Rushigwind, a second in command, RavenTail , and numerous warriors all protecting the others in the tribe. In the recent years however, the rouge tribe the KillDeer gained power and have begun terrorized their hunting grounds, attempting to overrun the length of their territory. The age old feud between the tribes has finally reached its breaking point, the war to end all wars was upon the horizon at last and Jaggedtribe must decide to fight for their home and risk everything, or leave the only home they've ever known.



    Will the Jaggedtribe cats rise as Victors over the lands of their ancestors or fall victim to the rugged claws of the KillDeer?



    The Tribes

    Jaggedtribe (open)
    Being the original organized winged tribe, they hold themselves to a higher standard than other cats in the valley, they are the "pure bloods" so to speak. Long ago, WindJumper left his mother who had abandoned him in the woods due to his winged condition, and sought shelter in a cave high in the mountains, away from other cats that would harm him. He was not the only winged cat born that season but he was the first and the only one who was smart enough to leave. Finding a female mate awhile later he began his own family and all his six kits were winged as he was. Vowing to protect his family he raised and trained them to fight and protect their cave for outsiders and to protect themselves from other cats who could be threars. After many years his family grew and grew and their hunting territory expanded as they became a formidable tribe, all winged and able to fly better than some of the birds in the skies due to their extensive training. Windjumper's mother had long ago returned to her tribe and continued having kits, the winged mutation continued and thus, the other winged tribes were born and bred for years. Jaggedtribe is now the largest and strongest tribe, most concerned with the the elaborate and harsh training of young cats as warriors designed to protect the tribe and the caves whereabouts. This tribe strives on their close knit ties with each other and the family-like environment that flows through all the cats living here. Their hunting territory includes the mountain peaks as well as the oak forest below their cave. They normally prey on rabbits, birds, and the occasional possum.This tribe is lead by senior warrior Rushingwind who is described as a greyish tawny Tom with creamy wings and a solemn glare.


    Oakknoll (open)
    It is sometimes speculated that this was the tribe Windjumper's mother basically created as she continued to breed despite the winged problem. Despite the rumors, this is the second largest tribe in the valley and by far the most unique because of their interesting adaptation. The felines in this group do have wings yes, but none can fly more than twenty feet or so before tiring and falling from the sky. Due to their ancestors being afraid to teach their young to use their wings, their wings never developed properly and left them nearly flightless down the bloodline. Now, these cats have developed amazing skills in hunting by leaping into the air, and using what little flight they do have to their ultimate advantage.This tribe resides west of the Jaggedtribe mountains and occupies the grasslands that carpet the valley here. They also have a small sliver of oak forest stolen long ago from Jaggedtribe in an ancient battle. They prey normally on mice, birds, and rabbits. The leader of this tribe is called WinterSong and is described as a small brown she cat with tigerish stripes.


    PineBramble (open)
    The PineBramble tribe is only known for their shadowy nature, tending to only be active at night and under the cover of storms. This tribe is home to the notoriously bad tempered GreenPaw, the brother of Jaggedtribe's leader Rushingwind, and he tends to rage into battle first and ask questions later. While this tribe is fully equipped with flight feathers they stick to the tree tops, leaping from bough to bough with ease and silence. Their history is cloudy but it is rumored they originated from a sibling of WindJumper whose name has been long forgotten from the old stories and legends, but no cat knows for sure. The territory of this tribe consists of the pine forest that coves the mountain peaks just north of Jaggedtribe across the valley directly. They prey mostly on birds but have been known to take down large rats nesting in their southern borders. Most of these felines are dark pelted with black or dark grey wings, to help them hide in the night sky.



    MistThicket (open)
    The MistThicket tribe was destroyed about two decades in the past by a great forest fire which is now just called the Great Fire. The damage here was almost unbearable for the rest of the valley, an entire tribe wiped out by a single event. Over the course of two weeks the flames spread across the valley and devoured much of the forest carpeting the valley and left the two remaining tribes and the rouges in a rough spot with little food an hardly any water. It was a time when they all came together in a sort of mutual truce and the fighting ceased for about a year and a half before the food returned to the valley along with the foliage. The MistThicket tribe was wiped from existence and though it is rumored some cats escaped the cave they had been trapped in when they all burned to death that fateful day, no proof has arisen. To this day the area they inhabited remains scarred with the skeletons of the tribe and the black cuts of the flames. Nothing grows here and all cats are forbidden in this part of this valley out of respect and fear of the trapped souls that still can be heard screeching in the dead of night here.


    The Rouge

    Killdeer (open)
    This is a rough group of traitors and exiles that has banded together over the years under the reign of BloodLust, known murderer of innocents and bloodthirsty she cat. BloodLust emerged about five years ago from an unknown land and came to power in the KillDeer only after she killed the previous leader whose name is not known. Once in power she began to gain more followers through scare tactics and blackmail, now terrorizing the tribes and their lands by purging food and kits. Infamous for stealing kits to be raised by her own "tribe", BloodLust has become the common enemy among the tribes. However, recently rumors have begun to cause panic that she and her now sizable army of exiles are planning the overthrow the tribes. Grouping together and living somewhere in the peaks near the PineBramble tribe, these cats prey on rats and mice along with the very occasional vulture. BloodLust is described as a cat of pitch black with blood red eyes, though not many who have seen her, (unless they are of the KillDeer group), have come back to their own tribes alive to describe her.



    We will mostly be focused on playing Jaggedtribe cats, however you may have other cats in other tribes but you must stay committed to playing both sides. I will only be posting the ranks for Jaggedtribe and the major Ranks for the other tribes. I play Rushingwind, BloodLust, as well as Racingleaf the warrior. If you would like to play one of the other tribe leaders feel free but this is first come first serve.



    Rules:

    ● Standard Iwaku rules

    ● You cannot kill a cat in battle unless you have permission

    ● Please do not have too much intertribe drama, you can have more than one cat in different tribes but don't start too much drama on purpose please :)

    ● If you get a mate, get a room

    ● Have fun and stay on the plot line, you know, war and stuff.

  6. My Characters




    Name: Rushingwind
    Age: 14 Years
    Gender: Male
    Tribe: Jaggedtribe
    Position: Leader
    Major skills (hunting, fighting, flight, etc): Back in his prime he was one of the best warriors and now sits as one of the strongest leaders in the tribe's history.
    Personality: With his piercing eyes and quick wit it is very hard to crack his professional and serious manner. Although, when he is relaxed he is quite a joy to be around, always making jokes and having quick responses to everything. He is very intelligent and has a great persuasion skill set.
    Bio: Born one of four into Jaggedtribe, he was always labeled as the strongest physically while his sister Wintersong, the leader of OakKnoll, and his brother Greenpaw, the leader of PineBramble, were always labeled the smarter ones. In his kithood Rushingwind experienced a traumatic battle in the old Jaggedtribe and lost his youngest sister Hollykit in the fury of the battle along with every other single kit at the time totaling 15. Due to this tragic loss he spent his years training violently to be the strongest warrior in his tribe to prevent the loss of anymore of his family or tribe-mates. His brother and sister gradually decided over the years that Jaggedtribe was just too strict and big for them so they left the comfort of their homes to join the other two tribes in the valley where they eventually become the leaders. Rushingwind moved up through the ranks to deputy at the age of 9 and the late leader of Jaggedtribe was lost to sickness leaving th youngest deputy in Jaggedtribe history to be the new leader thus causing him to be stronger than he had ever been before.
    Mate (if any): His mate was a warrior called OwlScreech but she died last winter from blacknose, a horrible disease that causes the nasal cavity to deteriorate and loss of breathing is the result.
    Appearance:(can use real or drawn pictures)[​IMG]
    Other: The blue markings on his fur are actually grey but due to the lightness and shimmer of his lighter grey fur it causes the stripes to appear blue.






    Name: Racingleaf
    Age: 5
    Gender: Female
    Tribe: Jaggedtribe
    Position: warrior
    Major skills (hunting, fighting, flight, etc): Speed in flight and hunting
    Personality: quick witted and a jokester Racingleaf finds it hard to focus on her warrior duties at times but always ends up getting them done anyways. She spend a lot of time thinking about what lies beyond the mountains and this imagination is what gets her into the most trouble.
    Bio: Racingleaf was born into Jaggedtribe by a warrior called Rainbowwing and she was a strong yet silly warrior, never really taken seriously. Racingleaf was brought up with this mentality that she was going to be treated the same as her dimwitted mother and strove to disprove this. She is now considered one of the most intelligent warriors, in battle at least. Her invention of a move called the screech-dive was what put her on the map so to speak with the older warriors and caused her training to be increased exponentially. During a recent battle over territorial grounds however she let two cats escape unscathed and was punished severely for her mercy, mercy was a big no no in battle.
    Mate (if any): She has no mate yet but she has her eye on a few strong toms
    Appearance:(can use real or drawn pictures) [​IMG]
    Other: She wants to be the eventual leader of Jaggedtribe




    Name: Bloodlust
    Age: 10
    Gender: Female
    Tribe: KillDeer
    Position: Leader
    Major skills (hunting, fighting, flight, etc): stealth
    Personality: Devious and said to have a heart painted black she is the epitome of sorrow and rage. She hates every cat she meets and even despises her own group of rouges. However, when she has a moment of less evil venom she can be quite pleasant, when compared to hell that is. Her cold eyes and ripping claws stop nothing short of blood every time she confronts a cat.
    Bio: There is little to nothing known about her but some say she crawled from the depths of hell themselves. However a more believable rumor is that she is a decedent of an escaped kit of a fire that killed off ancient tribe. These are only speculations however since that Great Fire had ended MistThicket so long ago. (That is the name of the tribe that was destroyed almost if not completely in the wildfire nearly 20 years prior.)
    Mate (if any): Who would dare?
    Appearance:(can use real or drawn pictures) [​IMG]
    Other: She strongly resembles a mountain lion however she is a normal feline, this is why it is speculated she came from MistThicket because all the cats there had the same relative physique.

  7. Bloodlust looks so powerful, challenging her would be a mistake. (-'·'-)

  8. Yes, yes it would be. But that mere fact my dear is what makes this interesting!
     
  9. Is anyone still interested in this?
