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.

RC x SC x SkC War Info
setting the ground rules
Please see next post.

As both ShadowClan, RiverClan, and SkyClan now have leaders we can officially begin fighting for control over the contested territories. For a clan to be able to boast control over a territory they must follow these rules:

1. A patrol with no fewer than two cats must begin a thread marking the territory for their clan.
2. The opposing clan has 24 hours to post in that thread challenging the claim. The 24 hours starts AFTER the last cat in the claiming patrol has posted.
3. Winners of the resulting battle (or whatever) gets control of that territory.
4. If you aren't challenged within 24 hours you claim it for your clan.
5. Post threads here and update them with the winner. Staff will mark that territory down for your clan. If it isn't posted here shortly after it's put up it will not count as a claim thread.
6. Recently claimed territory can not be challenged for again until after a 48 hour cool down (beginning when the thread claiming it ended).
7. If your clan has recently claimed territory they cannot again until after a 24 hour cool down (beginning when the most recent claim thread ended). This excludes posting in a thread started by the other clan.
8. Fleur controls the old barn. She/Mink can post to defend it outside of the 48 hour rule since she lives there. Loners may help if it resorts to fighting since she is but one cat!
9. Leaders can request specific territories be taken or call a halt to their clan claiming territory if they so wish.

You can of course post regular threads in these territories willy nilly, but they will not be official claim threads. You can post in territory claimed by the other clan as well, but the other clan may join it (without permission within 24 hours) to chase your cat/s out.

If you are already, or were just involved in, one of these claim threads please bow out and let someone else participate. Try to be inclusive and ask in the cbox if anyone would like to join. If staff notices a monopoly, so to speak, we will remove you from threads or give out warnings.

Claiming
Now that the contested territories are technically now SkyClan Territories we're going to get rid of the claim rules and treat it just as we would any clan trying to take their neighbor's territory. You can do it whenever and for whatever reason, but you (out of fairness) should give the other clan warning both here and in their discord chat so they can retaliate if they want. Like any rule breaking thread they will have twenty-four hours (unless you want to give them more) to try to stop you, and if they don't the territory will be marked for your clan (just be sure to post here and alert staff so we can mark the territory appropriately). This goes for all clans; not only SkyClan's territory can be infringed upon, but if SkyClan wants to go into RiverClan they can, and if ThunderClan wants to go into WindClan go wild ect.

You should ask your leader before doing so, of course, and if you decide to go ahead without their permission they of course can punish you if you get caught. I won't put a whole lot of rules in place here but be reasonable--don't go and try to claim an entire clan's territory without a proclamation of war/alerting the other clan's leader or talking to staff so we can make a plot out of it, and if you do make an attempt I'm going to ask that we still post here with what clan, what location, who, ect as we have been.

SkyClan can freely try to claim what's left of their territory (barring the ones currently with claims up), and of course SC or RC can feel free to challenge if they feel so inclined to not let SkyClan have their territory in peace ;)

**This has always been possible, but I feel I should make an announcement on it. If clans want to try to extend their territory into the neutral areas (as RiverClan did with the Salt Marshes) you can do that. Please contact Mink first and present possible new territory ideas. Once approved, or we find something else to put up as a new territory, you can put up a claim for your clan. Clanless cats can challenge (and predators if staff is feeling it), but otherwise the new territory will be added to your clan's if it's successfully claimed. And of course Clanless cats can try to claim clan territory for themselves/clanless cats, but of course you face an entire clan so it's not necessarily advised unless you're packing power. This will not be an option you can use frequently as I don't want to add too many new territories in a short amount of time. Claiming neutral territory will come with an increased risk of predator encounters until they are all chased out.

Still post here if you're trying to take territory

Still given 24 hours to try to stop claims

We'll do a 24 hour cool-down at minimum before a clan can try to claim a recently claimed territory.
