MistClan




 


 









Beware the shadow that stalks from the darkness...


For generations, a Clan of wild cats has lived in the territory across the mountains.  It is said that many, many moons ago, the ancestors of these cats, gifted with special elemental abilities, swam up from the ocean, originating from a legendary island in the middle of the sea.  They traversed the mountain range and settled in the land beyond.  And for generations, the descendants of those original "sea cats" have lived in peace.


But recently, a rash of mysterious incidents has threatened the long-standing harmony.  Cats are disappearing without a trace, and some are turning up dead.  Something – or someone – is picking them off one by one, and now no cat is safe.  Can the cats of MistClan discover the source of the sinister force before it’s too late?

Map and Locations

of Interest










The Camp- MistClan's camp is located in a large cavern in the mountain face, at the northern edge of the territory.  The entrance, at the end of a winding pathway about 20 tail-lengths above the ground, is commonly cloaked from easy view by a thin veil of mist, which gives the Clan its name.  A gap in the ceiling lets in a substantial amount of light, but at the same time isn't so large that birds of prey can easily fly in and snatch up kits.  Branching out from the central cavern are several smaller caves which serve as dens for the Clan's inhabitants.
        To the north edge of the main cavern, directly opposite the entrance, lies an arrangement of large stones, called the Rockpile, which is where the Clan leader makes his or her announcements.  The leader's den is to the right and slightly behind the Rockpile, and the fresh-kill pile is just off to the left of it.  The medicine cat's den is located in an alcove off of the southwest edge of the clearing.  Several smaller hollows in the western wall serve as nests for sick cats.  There are three other hollows to the southeast edge where the medicine cats sleep, and there is a cleft to the left of these hollows where the medicine supplies are stored.  The elder's den is located on the west side of the camp and is oblong in shape.  The nursery can be found in the northwest corner, and is large and round, with a curved entrance tunnel which provides plenty of privacy.  The triangular-shaped apprentice's den is off to the northeast edge of camp, with another longer entrance tunnel so that chatting youngsters don't disrupt the rest of the Clan.  The 8-shaped warrior's den is on the eastern edge of the main cavern, and is split into two halves that share an open side.  The northern half is for the senior warriors - over four years of age - and the southern half is for the junior warriors.


Deep Woods- The thick swath of forest to the east of the Meadow.  The territory is little-explored by Clan cats, as it lies beyond their territory.  Thus, it is cloaked in mystery.


Meadow- On the eastern edge of MistClan's territory, across the river, lies a large, spacious meadow.  Prey is plentiful here, particularly mice and rabbits, and this is the only place to find many of the herbs used by the medicine cats.  Kestrels frequently hunt here, as well, and though these small falcons are no threat to the cats, some of the species of snakes that also reside in the tall grasses are - warriors would do well to watch where they set their paws when they hunt here.


Misty Cave- A small, hollowed-out cave located behind Misty Falls.  To get inside, one must climb up a narrow, rocky path, about a tail-length wide, along the short cliff on the right side of the falls.  This cave is where medicine cats and leaders go to speak to StarClan.  To achieve contact, cats lap up the mist from the rocks, and then move to the back of the cave to sleep.


Misty Falls- A small waterfall that empties into a pool below, known as Misty Pool.  Misty Cave lies behind the cascading water.  The stream that feeds this waterfall is known as Misty Stream.


Misty Hollow- A dip in the terrain surrounding Misty Pool.  The pool is lined with large clusters of rocks, which makes falling from the top of the falls extremely hazardous.


Pinnacle Peak- The highest mountain peak in the territory.  It is a long and arduous trek to get here, but a few varieties of herbs, including catmint, only grow on this peak.


Precipice Pass- A winding, narrow, precarious pathway on the northern side of the river, this is the easiest - and safest - way through the mountains.  Both banks rise up above the river below, creating cliffs on either side.  The northern bank rises before the southern one, and flattens out for the narrow path before rising up again, into the mountain.  The river slopes down toward the ocean, creating dangerous rapids.  About halfway through the pass, a small cave leading from the path is bore into the cliff face, providing shelter for those passing through.


Sandy Hollow- A small sandy clearing, about 12 tail-lengths long by 8 tail-lengths wide and a tail-length deep.   This is the best place to practice battle techniques.

Glossary







- Animal Species -


American Robin- A medium-sized songbird, mostly a dark blackish brown with white markings around the eyes, a white throat with black streaks, a white belly and undertail coverts, and a reddish-orange breast.  They eat insects, berries, and other fruit.


Badger- A stout, short-legged animal, ticked gray in color with black legs and a black-and-white-striped face.  They have very long claws and can be bad-tempered and dangerous when provoked.


Canadian Lynx- A grayish brown, spotted cat with long tufts of ear fur and a great, furry ruff around their face.  They generally keep to themselves, but can prove dangerous to the cats if threatened, as they are larger and stronger.


Collared Dove- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird.  They are a buff color with darker tails and flight feathers and a black collar marking on the back of the neck.


Common Buzzard- A medium-sized bird of prey, usually shades of brown with pale spotting on the chest and belly.  They are opportunistic hunters and will consume small mammals, reptiles, birds, and even insects.  They will also occasionally take kits if the opportunity arises.


Common Pheasant- A large, ground-dwelling bird, they can range in color from nearly white to almost black, but the males are typically colored with barred reds, golds, and browns, with some cream and black markings, and iridescent green on the head, while females are mottled shades of brown and cream.  They eat a wide variety of seeds, berries, leaves, and insects, and provide a large meal for several cats if caught.


Cottontail Rabbit- A smallish creature with brown fur and long ears.  They are very quick, but will provide a meal for multiple cats if one can catch them.


Coyote- A medium-sized, dog-like creature, similar to a wolf but smaller.  They don't usually hunt cats, but can be dangerous if they are hungry or feel threatened.


Crow- A medium-sized, pure black bird.  They will eat just about anything, from berries to mice.  Though they prefer fresh meat, they have no qualms about eating carrion.


Golden Eagle- Large, golden-brown bird of prey.  Though they typically prey on smaller creatures such as mice, squirrels, and hares, they have enough power to take on small deer, and will take kits and even younger apprentices if given the opportunity.


Gray Wolf- Large, dog-like animals that live in packs.  They generally keep to the more mountainous areas, outside of Clan territory, but occasionally wander into the lowlands.  Most of the time, they ignore the cats, but will hunt them if they are desperate.  When they are, they can be extremely dangerous.


House Finch- A small, mottled brown, seed-eating bird with a large, thick beak.  Males have a bright red head and chest.


House Mouse- A small, brown rodent.  They live just about anywhere, eat just about anything, and are a common prey item for cats, foxes, snakes, and birds of prey.


House Sparrow- A small, seed-eating bird.  Females are primarily mottled brown above and gray-buff below, while males are more boldly colored, with a reddish back, grayish underparts, and bold facial markings which include a gray crown, chestnut red flanking the crown on either side of the head, and black around the beak, under the eyes, and on the throat.


Kestrel- A small falcon, they  have  primarily chestnut brown plumage with black spots on the upperside and black remiges, and a cream-brown chest with brownish streaks.  Females have more black spots than the males, which additionally have a blue-gray head and tail.  They hunt primarily in grassy areas by either hovering or searching from a perch, and then swooping swiftly down upon their prey.  They consume mainly small rodents, but also occasionally lizards, small birds, and even invertebrates.


Meadow Vole- A small brown rodent, similar to a mouse, that feeds primarily on grasses and seeds.  They are commonly hunted by foxes, snakes, birds of prey, and cats.  They live throughout the entire territory, but are most commonly found in the Meadow.


Mountain Quail- A smallish, ground-dwelling bird with a gray breast, brown face, wing primaries, and belly, and heavily barred white unders.  They eat primarily seeds, along with the occasional insect.  They are good for hunting, but shouldn't be underestimated even though they live on the ground - they are secretive, and can move surprisingly quickly through dense undergrowth.


Mourning Dove- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird, primarily a muted gray-brown in color, with a small black patch below the jaw and black spots on the wings.  The wings make a distinct whistling sound upon take-off and landing.


Pigeon- A medium-sized, stout-bodied, seed-eating bird.  They are generally gray with two black bars on each wing, a darker tail and head, and iridescence on the neck, but can also be found in browns and blacks.


Raven- A large, black bird that both scavenges and hunts small animals.  They are very similar to crows, but larger and have a deeper 'rock' call, unlike a crow's distinctive 'caw'.


Red Fox- Dog-like creatures with long, fluffy tails, they typically hunt mice in fields and snow.  A potential threat to the cats, particularly kits and younger apprentices.


Red Squirrel- A small, reddish rodent that lives in trees.  They are good game for cats, as well as lynx and eagles.


Red-Tailed Hawk- A large hawk with mottled brown and cream plumage, they are characterized by the adults' reddish tails.  They are opportunistic hunters and will prey on small mammals, songbirds, and reptiles.  They will take kits if given the chance.


Starling- Medium-sized, stout-bodied songbirds with black-brown iridescent plumage that can shine green and purple depending on the light.  Each feather is tipped with white on the body and face and brown on the wings, head, and shoulders, giving them a speckled appearance.  They are extremely gregarious, and often form large, very noisy flocks, able to mimic just about any sound they hear.  However, their aerial displays are a miraculous sight to behold.


Swainson's Thrush- A medium-sized songbird, brown on the upperparts, with white underparts and brown on the flanks, and a light brown breast and face with darker spots.  They mainly eat insects, berries, and other fruit.


Varied Thrush- A medium-sized songbird, the males are black with a bright orange breast and throat, an orange streak from above the eye down the neck, orange bars on the wings, and a black collar marking, while females are less vibrant, with mottled browns and grays instead of black.  They eat primarily insects.


Western Meadowlark- A medium-sized songbird with grayish brown uppersides streaked with black, black-streaked white flanks, and bold yellow undersides with a black 'v' marking on the chest.  They are mainly insectivorous, but will also feed on seeds and berries.




- Plants & Herbs -


Alder- Tall tree with simple, serrated leaves.  The bark is dark and often covered in moss, and the twigs are spotted and sticky to the touch.  The bark can be eaten or licked to cure a toothache.  Can be found in boggy areas near the river.


Beech- Large, smooth-wooded, grayish-colored tree with oval leaves.  Leaves are often used to carry medicine supplies, and can be used to mix poultices.  Oil from the nuts can be applied directly to wounds to fight and prevent infection.  Found throughout the sparser woodland, particularly higher up in the mountains, in the chalkier soil found there, as well as in the sandy areas near the ocean.


Bindweed- A vine-like plant with white, trumpet-like flowers and distinctive arrow-shaped green leaves.  Vines can be used to tie things, most importantly sticks to broken legs to set the break.  Can be found almost anywhere, like ivy.


Blackberry- Also called a bramble, this is a stout, prickly bush with leaves that grow in threes and are olive-green with reddish-brown tinged edges.  Younger leaves are completely brown-red.  A poultice of the leaves can be applied to bee stings to bring down the pain and swelling.  It is very common and grows in most forests.


Borage- Distinguished by its hairy leaves and small, star-shaped flowers, which can be either bright blue or purplish in color, consuming the leaves and roots of this plant helps to bring down fever.  Its seeds and leaves are also good for increasing the milk supply of queens.  Uncommonly found near the edges of forests.


Broom- A shrub with small leaves and tiny yellow flowers that grow upwards in a tall cone.  It is used to make poultices for broken bones.  It can be found in the Meadow.


Burdock- In the thistle family, this plant has tall stems and dark leaves.  It has a strong, easily-distinguished smell and large, fat roots.  The roots can be chewed up and applied to wounds to keep infection away, and the leaves can be chewed and applied to wounds clear of infection to speed up the healing process.  Found in damp soil, most commonly near the river.


Burnet- A small bush that has multiple oval-shaped leaves on each stalk.  In leaf-fall and late greenleaf, large clusters of small flower buds grow on the top of the plant.  It is eaten as a travelling herb to keep a cat’s strength up.  It can be found in the Meadow.


Catchweed- A very small weed with fuzzy green orbs that grow tiny white flowers on long stems.  Burrs are occasionally used to keep poultices in place without irritating the wound or skin, if cobwebs are in short supply.  Can be located in the Meadow, or other areas with low-growing vegetation.


Catmint- Also known as catnip.  It is a delicious-smelling plant that is low to the ground and possesses small, bumpy, slightly fuzzy leaves.  It can be eaten to treat Greencough and Whitecough.  It’s very rare and hard to find, and generally grows higher up in the mountains, most frequently on Pinnacle Peak.


Celandine- An uncommon yellow flower with prickly, fuzzy stems and four-petaled flowers with long pollen-stems.  Nectar is trickled into damaged eyes.  Can be found in the Meadow, or in sunny clearings in the forest.


Chervil- A  large, leafy, sweet-smelling plant with fern-like leaves and small white flowers. Its roots are dark brown, gnarled, and knobby.  Leaves are chewed and spit on infected wounds.  They can also be eaten to sooth bellyache, and are helpful with the nausea that sometimes occurs when kitting, as they are safe to give to queens.  Can be found along the rocky cliffs near the camp, as well as among the rocks in Misty Hollow.


Coltsfoot- This is a small, flowering plant, which looks somewhat like a dandelion.  It can have yellow or white flowers.  Its leaves can be eaten to help reduce shortness of breath or stimulate a kit to breathe, and is helpful in treating kitcough.  Can be found near the river.


Comfrey- This plant has large, long leaves and clusters of pink, white, or purple bell-shaped flowers.  The roots can be chewed into a paste and applied to wounds to help soothe them, as well as spread over a broken bone to help it in healing.  Can be found in the meadow, in the damp ground closer to the river.


Coneflower- A purple flower with petals found in a high cone.  It is very sweet-smelling and tasting.  The roots and leaves are eaten to give strength and resistance to illness.  It can be found near young pine trees.


Daisy- A small plant with circular, iconic white flowers with many petals and a yellow center.  The dark oval leaves are chewed into a paste to apply to aching joints.  Can also be eaten to prevent joint pain when traveling.  Can be found nearly anywhere.


Dandelion- A common yellow flower with long, weak, hollow stems.  About a half-moon after the weed blooms, the yellow flower turns into a white sphere of minuscule smaller flowers that blow away in the wind.  Liquid within the hollow stems is applied to beestings and the leaves can also be eaten to treat pain, if one can handle the bitter taste.  Extremely common and can be found everywhere.


Deadly Nightshade- A deadly toxic bushy plant, it can grow several feet high when not exposed to a lot of sun.  The oval-shaped, bitter-smelling and tasting leaves are dull, darkish green in color and of unequal size.  Soft, downy hairs may occur on young stems and leaves.  The veins of the leaves are prominent on the underside.  Large, shiny black berries - the most toxic part of the plant - grow at the base of the short leaf stems in leaf-fall.  It is found under the shade of trees, on wooded hills and at the base of the mountains.


Dock- A common, large-leafed plant with a tangy, almost sour, smell and taste.  The leaves can be applied in a poultice to reduce swelling, help skin issues, and heal broken or injured pads, but it stings quite badly when applied.  It can help sooth the pains of recent wounds when placed in nests.  It doesn’t grow in the mountains, but can be found in the flatter areas of the forest.


Fennel- A plant with very tiny yellow flower clumps on thin stalks and thin, spiky leaves.  The juice can be consumed for treatment of chronic coughs.  Eating it suppresses hunger and can help pain in the hips.  It can be easily found along the river and near the coast.


Feverfew- A smallish bush with daisy-like flowers, the leaves of this herb can be eaten to reduce fever or chills, and can also boost the immune system.  Don't give to pregnant mothers - however, it can be used during labor to stimulate contractions.  It grows almost anywhere, but can be found most commonly near the river.


Goldenrod- A tall plant with clumps of tiny, bright yellow flowers and narrow, pointy leaves.  Considered the best herb for speeding up the healing of wounds and treating them in general when applied in a poultice.  Rarely found, most often on the mountainsides.


Holly- A large plant with deep green, spiky-edged leaves and clusters of bright red berries.  The berries are toxic to cats, but are an important food source for birds.  It grows in shady areas, generally near trees.


Juniper- This is a large, evergreen bush with dark-colored, needle-like leaves.  The dark, purple-colored berries can be eaten to soothe bellyaches, and, when consumed, the leaves can help to ease breathing and reduce coughs, as well as strengthen the immune system.  It shouldn't be eaten by pregnant or nursing mothers, but can be used during labor to stimulate delivery of kits.  It grows throughout the forest.


Knotgrass- A very common weed, the stems can grow up to six feet in length, with stalkless, alternating, narrow oval leaves.  The roots are very strong and branching.  It can be used to treat diarrhea and kill worms and fleas.  It can be found almost anywhere.


Labrador Tea- A shrub that grows to a height of four to five feet with irregular and wooly branches.  The leaves are alternate and elliptical or oblong.  The upperside of the leaves are smooth and the underside is woolly, with the edges rolled back.  Bees are attracted to the large, white, five-petaled flower clusters.  It can be made into a poultice and rubbed on the chest and neck to treat coughs and chest infections.  It tastes and smells spicy, a bit like mint.  It can be found on Pinnacle Peak.


Lamb’s Ear- A small, very soft, fuzzy whitish-green plant.  It is eaten to give strength.  It is very common higher up in the mountains, particularly on Pinnacle Peak.


Lavender- A small, flowering plant with tall clusters of purple flowers, the leaves can be eaten to soothe the throat and stop nausea, vomiting, and convulsions.  The unique scent helps to calm the nerves and reduce stress.  The juice can be rubbed on areas to reduce inflammation and calm painful joints and muscles, and dabbed on the forehead to ease headaches and fever.  Can be found in some sparsely forested areas, as well as in the Meadow.


Mallow- A short plant with fuzzy, three-pointed, somewhat bumpy leaves and sweet-smelling purple flowers with narrow, heart-shaped petals.  It is eaten to soothe bellyaches.  It grows best near the seashore.


Marigold- Also called calendula, this is a small plant with oblong green leaves and many-petaled, orange-yellow flowers.  The flowers are frequently used in a poultice to help heal cuts, scrapes, bruises and other minor wounds or soothe the itch or sting of insect bites, as well as to decrease inflammation.  Eating the flowers can help prevent seizures.  They can also be ingested to soothe stomach cramps, but should not be consumed by pregnant queens.  It can be found in the meadow, close to the river.


Mint- A low-growing plant with downy, serrated leaves that can be anywhere from green to purple to yellow, with white fuzz.  It has a very sharp, cool smell and taste.  It is used in preparation of deceased warriors to hide the scent of death.  It can also be eaten or rubbed on a queen’s belly when her kits are having trouble suckling.  It can be found throughout the forest.


Oak- A large, common tree with rough brown bark and easily-identifiable, many-pointed leaves.  Dry leaves are taken from the forest floor in leaf-fall.  A poultice can be chewed and applied thickly on wounds to stop infection from spreading.


Parsley- A low-growing plant with broad, crinkly, ragged-edged leaves and tiny clumps of five to eight white or yellow flowers on a branching stalk.  It generally has little use, but can stop milk flow in some queens.  It is poisonous to birds.  Can be found in sunny areas near the river.


Poison Ivy- An irritating, low-growing plant that causes horrible, itchy skin lesions and fur loss.  The roots are reddish and branching, and the leaves are large and three-parted, with the central leaflet longest and the lateral ones nearly stalkless.  When dry, the leaves are papery and brittle, sometimes with black spots.  It can be ingested for a deep sedative that causes temporary paralysis, but also causes irritation and delirium, so is not to be used lightly.  It grows commonly in the dark parts of forests.


Poppy- A bright orange-red flower, the seeds of this plant can be consumed to induce sleep, help with pain, and calm the nerves.  The entire flower heads can be consumed to help with coughs, and the petals and leaves can be chewed to improve sleep.  Can be found in the Meadow.


Ragwort- A tall, rotten-tasting shrub with yellow flowers and tiny, numerous leaves.  It is applied in a poultice to treat aching joints.  It can be found in sparse forests.


Ragweed- A ragged-leaved plant that looks similar to a fern.  It is eaten for strength and energy.  It can be found among rocks in the mountains.


Raspberry- This looks very similar to a blackberry bush, but the leaves are soft to the touch with sharp-toothed edges, and the berries are red.  The leaves are given to queens to stop bleeding during kitting.  Berries can be used to coax out prey.  Can be found throughout the forest.


Rush- A plant with dark, reddish-purple heads on its long, thin stalks.  Hard stalks are used to bind broken bones.  It is found most commonly near water.


Snakeroot- A fairly tall plant with large leaves and clusters of small white flowers near the top of the plant.  The roots can be eaten in small amounts to aid fevers and diarrhea, and can be chewed up and applied to snakebites to draw out the venom.  Consuming too much of this plant can cause weakness and nausea.  You can find it in areas with sparse vegetation, such as on the edges of forests, as well as in thickets and on the edge of the river.


Saffron- A low plant with grass-like leaves and lily-shaped pink flowers.  Parts of the plant are eaten before or after kitting to prevent or stop heavy bleeding.  It grows in the Meadow and in forest clearings during greenleaf.


Sage- This plant generally grows about a foot high and has wiry stems.  The leaves grow in pairs up the stem and are oblong with rounded ends and prominent veins.  Flowers grow only in late greenleaf and are in whorls, purplish, and lipped.  All parts have a strong herbal odor and have a warm, bitter taste.  Drinking a tonic of water and crushed sage can soothe the throat.  Fresh leaves can be rubbed on teeth to strengthen them in elders.  It is most commonly found in forests near the coast.


Sorrel- A tall plant with arrow-shaped leaves and tiny round red flowers on a stalk. . Roots and leaves are used to help with heavy bleeding, as well as to stimulate appetite.  It grows pretty much anywhere.


Sticklewort- A spiky, woody root with a black stem, small leaflets and yellow, star-shaped flowers.  When mixed in a tonic of water and honey, it can be ingested to fix the worst stomachaches and, surprisingly, snake bites, if taken immediately.  It can be found in the Meadow, as well as in dry thickets.


Stinging Nettle- A bushy plant with hard, brown or green stems and long, toothed, yellow-green leaves.  It is most distinguished from its long clusters of very tiny bulbs.  The leaves and stems can be covered in hairs that are either soft or spiky.  Seeds are eaten to induce vomiting.  Seeds and leaves can be chewed and applied to swelling areas, and it can be mixed with comfrey to help heal broken bones.  The stems also help with infection.  It is found all over forests, and, most commonly, in moist fields.


Sweet Sedge- Thick, reed-like stems tipped with long, yellow, cone-shaped buds.  The sap is swallowed to ease internal infections.  It is most common near rivers or streams, but only during leaf-bare.


Tansy- Easily distinguished by its feathery, dark green leaves and clusters of round, bright yellow flowers.  Its flowers can cure coughs and the leaves can be chewed to relieve aches, but it must be used only in small doses, as it is toxic.  NEVER give tansy to a pregnant queen, as it can cause miscarriage.  It grows on the edges of the tree lines, as well as in sparse clusters of trees or clearings in the forest.


Thyme- A short, strong-smelling green plant with numerous woody stems and flattish round leaves that grow in pairs.  It flowers in summer, with the small, bluish purple flowers growing in clusters.  Can be used to aid in anxiety and help bring on sleep.  It can also repel insects.  Should not be used by pregnant queens, as it can cause miscarriage.   It is commonly found at the base of rotten trees.


Watermint- A green, leafy plant, this can be fed to individuals suffering from bellyache.  It can be found at the edges and in the shallows of the river.


Wild Garlic- A strong smelling, grass-like plant with white, round roots.  Rolling in it can disguise scent.   It can also be applied to bites or scratches to prevent infection.   It can be found near the edges of the forest.


Willow- A medium-sized tree with long, thin branches that droop down.  The small leaves are a grayish green color.  The flaky bark can be eaten in small doses to ease pain, lower inflammation, and help with diarrhea and fever.  These trees grow most often near the river.


Yarrow- A fern-like plant with soft, grayish, feathery leaves.  It can be consumed to induce vomiting, or chewed and applied to wounds to relieve pain and prevent infection.  It grows in sparse forested areas, such as at the edge of the trees or in forest clearings.


Yew- Also called deathberries.  This is a quite large and poisonous plant, identifiable by its stout, red, peeling trunk and pine-like leaves.  Its red, pitted berries grow on the stems of the needle-like leaves and are very toxic to eat.  They are sometimes used to end a suffering cat’s life if they can’t be helped, but only if they ask for them.  It can be found in most forests.
