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 - 4/21/18 New skin & new season! Still have some colors to update so don't be alarmed when you see that our tables and stuff are still not the right color (it's a process). Reminder that there is a large battle thread up between TC and WC, and TC needs their warriors to come help. You can find that here

UPDATES - 4/17/18 Accounts in the inactive group have now been deleted, but feel free to rejoin if you would like to. Follow the instructions in the last update to get your characters and threads back. Congratulations to the OTM winners! To view those, please click the OTM tab in the sidebar (Thanks to Rainbow for making them!). Graystar has led a group of his warriors into ThunderClan territory to stir up some trouble. Piedstar sent out reinforcements for Begoniaflame's small scouting patrol which has been ambushed, so get your ThunderClanners in the action here. Please be sure to read the information in Graystar's post first.

UPDATES - 3/31/18 The activity check has come and gone. If you find yourself deleted and wish to rejoin please feel free, and if you're in our inactive group you have two weeks to reclaim your accounts before they are deleted as well (please PM a staff member with the links to all your bios & threads you'd like moved back). Be sure to check your character's ages to see if they've moved up in the stat bracket, and if you are in need of a new name or ceremony please speak to your leader or request a name change & update your directories. Double check the apprentice & mentor list to see if anything has changed, too!

UPDATES - 3/24/18 After some careful deliberation given the delicate political situation in ThunderClan, Madelin and staff would like to congratulate Louie and Begoniaflame on getting ThunderClan deputy! Thanks to all those who took the time to apply. WindClan deputy will be open again in the near future, and don't forget that we still have some medicine cats looking for apprentices, too (if interested PM the medicine cats!).

UPDATES - 3/19/18 Thank you thank you to everyone who took the time to audition for RiverClan deputy. After much deliberation we congratulate Mountainfang (Mink) on getting the position! Remember ThunderClan deputy is still open for auditions, and WindClan deputy will be again in the near future! We still have some medicine cats looking for apprentices, too (if interested PM the medicine cats!).

UPDATES - 3/17/18 A big thank you to everyone who applied to and showed interest in the WindClan deputy position. After discussing the characters and proposed plots we congratulate Jackdawclaw (Yazsh) on getting the position. If you have any questions or would like help with your next audition you can send staff a PM or DM. If you missed out we encourage you to apply for RiverClan deputy before the deadline on March 19th and for ThunderClan deputy. WindClan deputy auditions will open up again in the near future, so keep an eye out!

UPDATES - 03/16/18 RiverClan deputy audition deadline is Monday March 19th! Please get auditions in before then if you're interested in trying out for the position. If you think you may need more time speak to staff asap and the deadline may be extended. Also, we have an activity check running until March 31st, so make sure and post in that ASAP!

UPDATES - 03/14/18 WindClan deputy audition deadline is Saturday March 17th! Please get auditions in before then if you're interested in trying out for the position. If you think you may need more time speak to staff asap and the deadline may be extended.

UPDATES - 03/12/18 Okay hold on to your hats my friends! We now have RiverClan and WindClan deputy open for auditions as well. Link to the high rank board to the left as well as in the news blurb below this one. Same rules apply as with TC deputy -- fill out the audition form and send it to all staff members.

UPDATES - 03/11/18 ThunderClan deputy is now open for auditions. Please be sure to read over the high rank info here. If interested in the position please fill out the audition form and send it to staff as well as Madelin. MCA positions are still open (info below). Keep your eyes open for an activity check in the near future too (and hopefully a new skin if Mink can find time to do a banner!). I should add, while not necessary, including plot ideas (even if they are far out) is very much helpful!

UPDATES - 02/28/18 Rainbow has opened a temporary WindClan MCA position and is asking that interested parties be open to them losing the position within a few months so be sure to have plot ideas as to how they lose the position (death, failing to save a patient, etc) and DM (discord) or PM them your ideas and a bit about the character if they don't already exist on the site. Both RiverClan and SkyClan MCA are now open as well, and those interested should PM/DM Madelin and Trick respectively with your ideas, bio links, or a little about the character's personality/history if they don't they don't yet exist on site.

UPDATES - 02/26/18 A nasty case of greencough has taken SkyClan's deputy, Orcasong. Thankfully, it hasn't shown signs of spreading to the rest of the clan yet. Sequoiastar has chosen Weaselwhisker as her new deputy (which will be officially announced during an upcoming meeting along with a few other exciting things for the clan). Also be on the lookout for more news about the war between ThunderClan and WindClan. Staff will likely start a sign up sheet in the next couple of days to assemble patrols once the ThunderClan meeting has progressed a bit further, so please get your cats' responses into that as well as finishing up your Gathering posts. Because of plot progression and the nature of our sandbox roleplay style, both WC and TC deputy positions may be opening up in the near future. We will open auditions and make additional announcements when that times comes, but go ahead and start thinking about exciting plots for your potential deputies and brush up on the requirements of the position, which are located here!

UPDATES - 01/30/18 A very special announcement! Please join us in congratulating Monument on her engagement!

UPDATES - 01/30/18 The activity check is over and those who did not post or speak to staff have been deleted or moved into our inactive group where they will remain for two weeks before being deleted themselves; bios are never deleted, but are instead moved into our archives. If you have been deleted and wish to rejoin please feel free, and if you find yourself in the inactive group you'll have to PM a staff member with links to your bios and threads to have those moved back. All cats have been aged so please check to see if your characters have moved into a new age bracket, or if they are old enough for a rank change (speak to your leader or update directories/names if that's the case). Be sure to check mentors & apprentices to see if anything has changed, and keep in mind staff is turning those who are not reliable with training threads away from both mentoring and receiving a mentor themselves until consistency can be shown. Our site gathering is still going on (it's just gotten started!) so be sure to check that out.

UPDATES - 01/23/18 Site gathering is up here. Please do not post until the leader of your cats clan has. Leaders have the right to deny a cat access to the gathering and will let those who cannot attend know. The gathering can count as one of your active threads for the activity check.

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.

@Mutt

Your past doesn't define you

it just gives you the starting point of who you're going to be

Body tense, Carolina stepped forward following her memory. She knew she was getting CLOSE to returning to the territories of the clans. She cared little for the other clans, there was only one clan on her mind. SkyClan. When she had left they were just starting to rebuild the clan. It would be better than the other clans. They would do better... And then just like that she had LOST her brother. Epsilon had gotten hurt and during the time she had gone to get help, he had been found already by a two leg... Though she had wished to remain with Sequoia and the others, she knew she could not sit by idle. So she had left, pressing onward. Promising that no matter how long it would take, she would return. Vowing that Epsilon would be with her but--

She had failed. Epsilon was NOT with her... Her head hung low as she padded further along, sharp eyes taking in her surrounding. She had been here before, knew that it was not always a friendly place for a cat. Surely her wounds had healed, better than she thought they would have... New scars were added to her form, she was lucky however that some of it was shielded from eyes by her thick fur. A swish of the tail and she finally lifted her head when she rounded a corner, eyes narrowed. Body tense. There was another nearby. She vaguely remembered fighting Waterbug. But that little cat had claimed the sewers. Surely she was not above ground. And it did not SMELL like her.

Giving a light rumble, she finally readied herself, pushing into a stance that could attack if needed, or flee. Or none of the above if the other cat would be a friendly one, but that remained to be seen... " Who are you? "

The city was the last place Munin would have chosen to live.

It was far away from Thunderclan, but still too close to twolegs for Munin's comfort. There were also plenty of rogues, kittypets, and other loners she had to deal with. Not all of them were friendly, but some of them were on the desperate side and Munin took pity in them. She'd give them scraps, and then tell them to get lost. It was easy enough to get them to go away after she gave them something to eat. They were given nothing but scraps, as it was. Munin was itching to hunt something, or try to find a rat or a mouse to snack on for her and Nova. She turned towards her pupil, gave her a quick goodbye, before setting out into the town.

She didn't get very far before another cat's figure came into view, black and long-haired just like herself. She saw the young molly from behind so her first thought was that her brother had followed her out into the city. For what reason, she wasn't sure, but she wasn't happy about it. She stepped a few paces closer to the black stranger. She heard the stranger's voice, it rang out young and female, and Munin's anxieties were stopped in an instant.

This wasn't her brother. It was a kid- about as old as Nova. The red-eyed she-cat snorted and decided to reveal herself, slinking out from the shadows she was hiding within. "I'm not anyone important." She introduced herself with a little dip of her head and a twitch of her whiskers. "And I'm not going to hurt you. So you don't need to get all worked up." She looked briefly towards the stranger's paws, before settling her red eyes back on her face.

"Unless, of course, you're like the other cats around these parts and you want to try and beat me up for the hell of it." She added later, a half-smirk twitching onto her face. "Then we might have a problem."

@Mutt

Your past doesn't define you

The city as bustling with cats as it had felt... Had been kind to her and her brother after they had found old Lion... She heard he had passed on, however. On the way back she had managed a peek in the all to familiar garden they had often visited. Lion's scent had lingered, yes... But it was no longer fresh. Though she knew the death had been coming, it was a bitter piece of meat to swallow... A flick of the tail and she finally kept her hues fixed upon the molly before her, hackles still raised a bit. One could never be too certain... She didn't want to be caught off guard. Another irritated lash of her tail and she finally turned completely to face the stranger, standing her ground, tall and proud.

Despite the weight of life upon her young shoulders. She had survived worse, and she would continue to survive ( but without Epsilon aside you ). I n t e r e s t i n g. One look at the stranger's eyes caused her own to widen just that little bit, quietly studying her form. She was definitely OLDER... And she was the first red-eyed cat she had met. It was a rare phenomenon... But it was possible. A lot of things were, she had figured out... The whispers in her dreams even BEFORE she had found Sequoia... A faint snort.

" Not anyone important. Quite a low perspective you have of yourself. " meowed the young cat finally, making herself somewhat more comfortable. " Hardly worked up. More cautious than anything. Sorry but... Some cats aren't renowned for their vows of causing no harm in this place. I'm sure you understand. " she calmly pointed out, a flick of her ear and a scoff. Beat her up for the hell of it...

" Tempting. " she spoke, keeping a neutral face before shaking her head. " But I'm not here to get into fights. I'm here to return home. " Wow... That word sounded ODD on her tongue...

"Well, it's better to have a low perspective of myself than let myself get wrapped up in my own ego." Munin replied with a dip of her head, casting the younger molly another smirk. Her words were meant to sound biting and cynical. It was true, though, that she didn't think very... highly of herself. Not to the point of being self-conscious or thinking she was worth less than other cats, but she had a good deal of regrets on her shoulders. Things she wanted to take back, but never would be able to. Things she wanted so badly to do over, but couldn't.

She'd made mistakes, but she was learning to move past that.

The younger cat insisted she wasn't worked up, and was just cautious, and the older molly found herself snorting. "Lucky for you, I'm rather true to my word. But I understand where you're coming from." She said with a dip of her head. She was being honest. Munin wasn't one to lie about her true intentions- she was rather cut and dry when it came to things like that. The younger cat's response of 'tempting' brought forth another snort from the older cat.

It was her comment about returning home that grabbed Munin's attention. Her red eyes narrowed slightly and she cocked her head curiously. "Return home?" She echoed. "You certainly don't look like a kittypet." And you're a far cry away from the clans.

" Or you could have a nice balance between the two. Doesn't have to rocket upward or spiral downward. " countered the black she-cat, keeping a cautious eye upon the other black cat with a light swish of her tail. Something told her this cat was to be a pawful if one were friends with them, but that could be just her... A light tilt of the head, she almost expected Epsilon to appear nearby, of course he did not... So used was she to his constant presence that being without him felt... Odd. But that was the dice that had been rolled for her. She'd have to take it and own it up.

And pray that along the way, within time... Epsilon would find his way back to SkyClan, where she'd be waiting for him. " I'm pleased to hear such cause not many are true. " she meowed finally, giving her a look-over. Most definitely older than her. And probably with a lot more regrets of life on her shoulders than young Carolina, right? A sigh before she finally dipped her head down once.

" You're right. " she spoke, a snicker. " I am definitely not a kitty-pet. I've never quite lived inside of a human home, even if I lingered around the houses. " she confirmed, rasping her tongue over her leg once before stretching out. " And I am not part of those feral Clans who chase off everyone who dare put a paw on their territory. " she added with a scoff. " I am part of another group, working to being a clan but different. SkyClan. "

Munin shrugged her shoulders at the other cat's comment. There was some truth to her statement. She simply let the conversation die, only perking up when Carolina sounded relieved to hear Munin wasn't going to harm her. The black she-cat wasn't going to get into a pointless fight. The topic of kittypets and where this stranger came from, however, grabbed the old molly's attention once more. She relaxed a good deal upon finding out this she-cat wasn't from a clan, and that she wasn't a kittypet either. Her amusement faltered when she mentioned being a part of Skyclan.

Nova talked about them.

"Hm." The black she-cat meowed blankly, "Skyclan. Is it really that different? It seems exactly the same." She said, pausing after. She... was a bit curious about the clan. If it was different than Thunderclan, perhaps she'd look into it. "What makes it so special besides it being made up of kittypets, loners, and a bunch of riff-raffs? The only clans probably aren't happy about it. They're too busy harping over Starclan's will, or whatever." Munin said with a bitter scoff. Brightsky would've accepted Skyclan without batting an eye, of that she was sure.

Her old friend was too kind for her own good.

Green hues slowly shifted to look at the other through half-lidded eyes. The question was a good one, she could not fault this old cat for asking it. After all, in the long run SkyClan had to become part of the other clans, didn't it? But she hoped that it would remain SkyClan. Friendly toward loners... Not too friendly, because she knew that often loners had ulterior moves... But still more welcoming then the other clans proved to be. She'd been gone for so long though, she didn't know what to expect when she returned to the place she had left. Had too much changed? Could she rightly speak of SkyClan without knowing for sure how it was right now? But Sequoia.... She trusted the other cat. Cared for her. Surely she wouldn't change who she had been...

And then came the inkling of fear that perhaps she had been killed... Chased off... And her desire to return became even the greater. Curse it. Curse it, they would be okay, wouldn't they? Surely, yes...

" Yes. " she finally spoke, pride filled her voice as she gazed at the other. " Firstly, they are an old slash new clan. Though we surely will keep some traditions, we've got an open mind for new ones too. We will not act like feral beasts when a cat manages to stumble over our border. And-- " she spat, pushing herself up to her full weight, eyes narrowed. " They're more than a bunch of riff-raff as you so pointedly put it. " she huffed out, lashing her tail once before tilting her head. Was this cat a former clan cat? She knew it was a possibility...

" Where do you come from. "
