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 - 6/13/18 Deep in the Meadow is officially, for all intents and purposes, considered closed today. For those who recently joined we are deeply sorry, but do hope you will consider joining us at our new-old site Lies in the Low. The world is new, and it is not a continuation of DitM. Please be sure to read all the posted information as many things have changed or been tweaked for the move. Lies in the Low will be in what’s called a soft opening for the next week or so to give members following us over time to re-claim their favorite face claims and get characters they’d like to move over changed to fit the new site. After this soft opening is over it’s business as usual and you cannot claim or hold faces. Your points and character slots do not move over with you, but for this first week and for your first four characters you do not need to repurchase any shop items for your characters. The site will remain open for members to access their bios for the next week, but after that will be closed. You can still ask staff to fetch your things if you need them after the open period. If you have any questions please ask a staff member.

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.

A two-leg city sits both north and south of the clans. One surrounded by forest while the other sits near the sea. Both are typical as far as cities go; mid-sized with daily traffic in and out as two-legs commute to their jobs. The largest buildings are in the center while two-leg homes, where the kitty-pets live, are on the fringes. Monsters and cat-catchers prove a problem for stray and feral cats so wits must be kept sharp when prowling the streets and alleyways. City cats survive off human scraps, mice, birds, squirrels and even rats when kitty-pet food cannot be located. While some city cats may be helpful – friendly even – not all are.

This is the house that Boo shares with Dragonfly, his human Elaine, and his two dog "parents," Buckeye and Trixie. The house is settled on the outskirts of the city south of ShadowClan territory and is down the street from Frankie's house. The backyard is fenceless--open and grassy--and not far from a forest, so it's easy enough to get to the house that way. Elaine often keeps the door open so that her animals can come and go, so cats could enter the house at their own risk. Any threads may be interrupted by: Boo, Dragonfly, Elaine, Trixie, or Buckeye. Within the board, there is a picture of the house's layout as a reference. For any specific questions or clarification, please message Rainbow.

The park lies at the heart of the two-leg city and is a piece of the wild nestled in an urban setting. Walkways are often crowded with two-legs and their children by day, but at night the lamps come on and the two-legs vanish into their dwellings. Two-legs pose a real threat during the daylight hours, but after the sun goes down ferals and strays come to the park to hunt—many of them live within it, even. The grass, clumps of bushes and trees, and pond all provide different types of pre while trashcan and sidewalks provide bits of two-leg meals and scraps. A small jungle gym and sandbox sit within the park’s boundaries and, when not filled with two-leg children, are a hot hang out for cats.

The zoo is entirely too enticing for its own good. Unique sounds, smells and sights from exotic and wild animals, as well as those food smells and the promise of a full belly—who could blame the local strays from venturing in? The zoo keepers, that’s who. Stray animals are strictly forbidden in most instances and humane live traps are not at all uncommon on the grounds. During daylight hours the zoo is almost always flooded with a sea of two-legs, but at night—when things quiet down and empty out—it becomes prime time for digging through the trashes, find morsels on the ground, investigating the enclosures, and perhaps getting yourself in trouble. The zoo has plenty of risks associated with it so enter with caution!

The sewers, located beneath the cities, are accessible from many entry points located on the edges of streets and by some waterways. They aren’t the most attractive of settings, but provide relative safe passageways for cats to travel around the city unhindered by both two-legs and monsters. Small nooks and offshoots provide some form of shelter while rats, mice, and the odd two-leg pet offer forms of prey. The sewers don’t come without danger though. Large swarms of rats and sudden floods are quite common and can easily overwhelm and sweep a cat away.

A pretty pond surrounded by frangrant, overhanging flowers, bushes and stones. This beautiful clearing and its surroundings are rich in various plants; moss, flowers, and herbs alike. The easy availabilty of food and water attracts an abundance of prey species from around the territories, but the seemingly perfect pond also holds the danger of larger, more dangerous animals, many of which can easily kill or maim a cat, being attracted by the fresh, clear air, delicious, plump prey and pretty, clear water that the clearing boasts. Thankfully, most visitors who choose to come here are more interested in the easy rabbits than a fleeing cat.

The beach sits west of the northern coastal city and runs for some length before cliffs spiral off in sudden sharp inclines. The beach can get busy during the warmer months, but offers plenty of hiding spots and habitat for cat, prey, and predators alike. The ocean comes with inherent dangers—mainly currents, large waves, and predators—but for those who can swim and fish it’s host to a wide variety of sea prey, too. The nearby rocks and grasses primarily house small rodents and reptiles, but occasionally (during nesting season) seabirds can be found as well. A local favorite is the colorful puffin.

It isn't known how long ago twolegs lived at this nest. The walls are unsteady,the roof has collapsed in on itself, and the stench of twoleg is long gone. Used by many a cats to shelter in during a storm, it can be dangerous - one wrong move on a wobbly wall, and it could be a tomb.

The forest covers a large portion of surrounding unclaimed land and provides an overwhelming majority of prey and coverage for those that travel outside of the city boundaries. Two-leg roads, railways, and even clan territories slice into it so traveling clanless cats must be wary. Prey species range from rodents, to rabbits, to birds with the odd amphibian and reptile thrown in there with a healthy selection of abundant predators too.

In the middle of the forest (above), a little cottage is home to an old woman named Betty. She is known to all the cats living in the area as an important resource if shelter or food elude them. Betty loves cats, and will always leave food out for strays and invite them to shelter in the sheds on her property. Occasionally, she will take strays into her home and adopt them. Even this sanctuary is not without its dangers, however; Betty does her best to protect the cats here, but she can't be everywhere, and it isn't uncommon for a raccoon or an opossum to come sniffing around the food.

This part of the river is a no man's land, open to any cat without a Clan to fish or swim. Many species call this river home, including carp, perch, bass, and even pike, whose teeth might be a little more dangerous. Swimming is manageable in some parts of the river, but there are a few small waterfalls and faster-moving areas that make swimming a risk. Sometimes Twolegs can be seen in or around the river, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, fishing, etc. There are no motor boats, however, because the river is narrow enough and has enough changes in level to make them dangerous. Traveling along the river will lead to an encounter with the Clans, as this river does wind through most of the territories.

The river's most powerful falls/rapids area is also the site of an old abandoned papermill. In years past, the mill used the rushing water for power for its operation. Unfortunately, the humans running the place took little care for their employees, and the mill shut down prematurely due to a number of work-related accidents and fatalities. Now, the three-story stone building is still in fairly good condition and provides shelter and prey in the form of small rodents for a number of Clanless cats. They are pretty safe here, with a low frequency of predator encounters due to the constant presence and strength of cat scent. Rats can be a problem, though, and every so often a small group of humans will come, set up equipment, creep around the place and generally make a lot of noise. They are looking for ghosts of deceased mill workers, of course, but all the cats know is that when the Twolegs show up, they need to scram.

The Oasis is a rare marked territory within the norther stretches of neutral land, and claimed by the two young loners Waterbug and Lyra. Despite their youth the two are willing to defend their home when necessary, and it’s plain to see why they would—the Oasis is a lovely hide-a-way pool that’s stocked with fish, fed by a small creek, comes complete with scenic waterfalls and sun-warmed rocks to lay on, and high-cliff walls that provide protection on all fronts. The pair nest in a shallow cave near the pool.
