a gorse tunnel leads to the remnants of an old riverbed long since reduced to a sandy ravine, opening into a dusty clearing edged with thick grass, ferns, and a tangled wall of protective brambles. the clearing itself is peppered with aging tree stumps and fallen branches.

thunderclan's territory spans the majority of the forest, a woodland rife with trees both standing and fallen, trickling streams, clumps of boulders and shear rock, and ground thick with moss and heavy leaf litter. other than a few well trodden paths cut through by generations of patrols, the forest is a dense and wild place.

a small hollow ringed in dense brambles, the ground of this camp is moist and spongy, freezing over in leafbare. the entrance is a narrow thorn tunnel, and pine needles litter the ground throughout, with thick pockets of ferns surrounding each den.

no new posts the marsh
shadowclan's territory is a wide expanse of cool, moist ground dotted with pine trees and clusters of brambles. fallen needles from the pines sometimes blanket the soil, allowing easier passage over areas usually choked with mud where the ground dips low. the marsh does not appear to be a particularly appealing place for twolegs, buying shadowclan a degree of protection with its unsavory terrain.

a large, well-drained island surrounded by dense reeds, this camp half rests, half floats on marshy ground, allowing it to rise safely during floods. all of the dens are made of tightly woven reeds and adorned with small rocks and shells from the river. can only be reached by swimming in greenleaf and traversing shelves of ice in leafbare. a grassy track weaves between the sedge bushes that grow throughout the camp.

riverclan's territory consists of reedy wetlands at its heart before transitioning into the flat plains of the outermost farming fields. rows of wooden fencing criss cross the territory and corral sheep, horses, and other animals within their confines. a twoleg campsite is situated beside the farm, with one wide trail leading to the gorge.

a dry, sheltered, well-hidden hollow surrounded by dense gorse and tall grass, this camp is dotted with old dens used by other animals long ago. though many windclan cats prefer to sleep under the open sky, harsh weather sometimes drives them back into the dry burrows that lie nestled in the camp's sandy ground.

windclan's territory consists entirely of rolling moorland with faint hills and dips ocassionally broken up by rocks and stretches of taller grass. trees are next to nonexistent, but the land harbors an intricate warren of underground tunnels carved out by a variety of animals long ago.

no new posts the gorge
running between riverclan and windclan territory is the gorge, the uppermost part of the river with steep rock walls and swift, choppy white water. it is considered a dangerous place by all the clans, even by those cats who are strong swimmers. the water itself is treacherous, but solid stones within the current add another layer of hidden danger. battles along the edge of the gorge are as risky as they are rare; many warriors have fallen to their deaths, their bodies seldom recovered.

no new posts the thunderpath
an oily, acrid stretch of dark gray stone, the thunderpath cuts along the other side of the forest, effectively dividing shadowclan and thunderclan territory. a path on which monsters race day and night, many cats have been hurt or killed attempting to cross it. the thunderpath is laced with a sour, stinging scent thanks to the frequency of the monsters traveling its length, with certain hours marked by heavier movement than others. prey and predator alike know to fear traversing its dark surface; a swift death awaits those with careless steps.

no new posts the riverbanks
serving as the border between thunderclan and riverclan territory, the river features a dense treeline on one side and thick reeds on the other, with rocks strewn heavily along both banks. some stones poke through the surface in certain areas, creating a path on which to cross when the water is low. it is sometimes possible to cross in leafbare when the river is frozen, but the risk of falling through the ice is often deemed too great.

no new posts the passage
a short concrete twoleg bridge spanning the breadth of a sharp dip in the earth, this low but relatively wide and arching gap leads under the thunderpath between windclan and shadowclan territory. unlike the secret thunderpath tunnel leading from the marsh, this passage is more spacious, with the floor covered in a fine grit and sunlight easily illuminating the curved walls.

no new posts fourtrees
a massive, steep-sided hollow lined with four great oaks, fourtrees serves as the sacred meeting place of the clans. at its center sits the great rock, a jagged stone on which the clan leaders sit during gatherings, times when the clans converge on fourtrees to share what news they bring from their home territories. though it is now strictly a place of peace, especially during the full moon, fourtrees was once the site of a great battle that led to the creation of the clans.

the site of an abandoned twoleg mine, highstones is a dark landscape of jagged stone peaks and dusty gravel ground peppered with clumps of heather. along its southern border is mothermouth, a deep, tunneling cave and a sacred place to every clan. first discovered by an ancient windclan cat, highstones is a deeply secretive and lonesome place. it harbors little prey and thus few predators, adding to its quiet desolation.

no new posts whiterock
nested within the rocky spires of highstones lies a small abandoned quarry currently unknown to the clans, the dusty monster track leading out from its depths sealed off with rubble and a rusted gate. the rogues and loners who frequent its alabaster walls call it whiterock, a place of tentative peace among those who belong nowhere. fights are not uncommon, but an unspoken understanding typically prevents complete anarchy, establishing whiterock as a rugged haven for drifters and outcasts. the desiccated corpses of strangely shaped monsters -- so unlike those seen along thunderpaths -- lie still and silent among the pale ruins, with patches of thick vegetation growing stubbornly out from fissures in the walls and scattered piles of stony debris. A twoleg path cut into the rock spirals lazily downward, leading to a circular basin filled with rainwater. At night whiterock’s marbled walls glimmer faintly, carrying traces of the same ghostly material that makes up the nearby moonstone.

no new posts twoleg farm + barn
beyond the northern border of windclan territory sits a twoleg farm with a massive wooden barn. a popular resting place for clan cats returning home from highstones, the barn is packed full of towering bales of hay and with them an abundance mice. the barn is also not unfamiliar to most rogues and loners. the farm is home to several varieties of livestock as well as a sprawling field for growing crops and other goods. the twoleg nest at the far end is relatively small, with its residents often seen working the farm during the day. a pair of dogs are kept on the premises, but alternate between being tied up and running loose.

no new posts twolegplace
as its name suggests, twolegplace is the main home of the forest's twolegs. laid out in a grid with rows of small, generally quiet thunderpaths and tall imposing nests, twolegplace, while a generally peaceful area, is not without its dangers. loners and bands of aggressive kittypets can be considerable threats against even the most seasoned warriors, and loose dogs are not uncommon. the twolegs themselves are not unknown to capture or even attack wayward clan cats, with many returning after moons of absence, if at all.

green buds have begun to line the boughs of the forest, heralding the long-awaited arrival of newleaf. after a particularly vicious leafbare, the clans welcome the lengthening days and turn eagerly to the face of a warmer sun as the forest once again sets itself to grow.
