The Moontree is a huge oak tree that no longer ever carries leaves, whether in leaf-bare or greenleaf. It has a silver shine on it whenever the half-moon or full-moon comes. The Moontree actually is used for two purposes: StarClan's place to gather and speak to leaders and medicine cats, and the place where the Gathering is held. Since there aren't any other clans besides SkyClan, the leader will climb the Moontree and address the Clan from there. They will speak of important things like new warriors, apprentices, and kits, even if the Clan already knows. Sometimes, they will invite loners who believe in StarClan to come for the Gathering. Since the loners are usually quite helpful, they are thanked by being part of the Gathering, and getting to hear news. Often loners will share news of their own.
There will always be a date here of when the Gathering is beginning. If you want to meet a loner if you're a Clan cat, or the opposite way around, come here to avoid danger. Don't be caught by your Clan, though! The next gathering will take place on May 31, Saturday, at 3:00 mountain time. The reason its not the week after that is because I may be going on vacation. If you have a problem with this date, let me know! If you can't figure out what time you're in, look on the chart below, generously provided by Fernstar:
Hawaii-Aleutian time: 11:00 (pm or am)
Alaska Time: 12:00 (pm or am)
Pacific Time: 1:00 (pm or am)
Mountain Time: 2:00 (pm or am. Waterheart time)
Central Time: 3:00 (pm or am. Fernstar's time)
Eastern Time: 4:00 (pm or am)
The way cats can die are: 1. You don't post for more than two weeks. 2. You die in battle (both cats have to agree that one will die). 3. If you get were in a battle, and you don't say anything to the medicine cat about healing your injuries for more than three days, you die. 4. Elders may die of old age whenever they want. 5. You get a serious sickness like greencough. Elders and kits will die if they do not get healed after 5 days, and warriors, queens, apprentices, medicine cats, deputies, and leaders will die if they do not get healed after 7 days.
Leaders can die 5 times, but the sixth time you die, you really are dead. I'll put the leader's number of lives on the SkyClan Cats page. You can't have "magical powers" or "reincarnate". I know, it's not fair because Cinderpelt got to, but you'll get me more confused then I already am!
This is where StarClan gathers. Only come here if a StarClan cat invites you! If you don't, serious consequences will occur. Only the medicine cat and leader may come here whenever they like, along with StarClan cats. The Starless cats can not come here.
Cats in StarClan:
Sunleaf- A slim, fiery sun-colored she-cat with emerald green eyes. She is sweet, kind, and loving. Sunleaf loved sorting herbs and smelling the moss that grew near the stream. She was an excellent mother (see history) and a good medicine cat. History: When she was in SkyClan, she fell in love with a handsome black tom with blue eyes called Shadowpelt, and they became mates. She bore his three kits, a black she-kit with green eyes, named Nightkit; a flame-colored tom with blue eyes, named Flamekit; and a ginger she-cat with dark tabby stripes with turqoise eyes, named Willowkit. Sunleaf refused to give up her kits, and the whole Clan found out her secret. She was exiled along with her mate, who was killed by a badger protecting her, and she continued to nurse her three kits by herself, and died saving them from greencough, when, in the middle of a leaf-bare blizzard, she went to fetch catmint although she was suffering herself. She died from greencough, and it is unknown to this day where her kits are. But StarClan took pity on her and accepted Sunleaf into their ranks, where she still watches over she-cats, queens, and kits.
This is where evil cats who have killed or betrayed their Clan go. Rogues also come here when they die. It is a dark, treacherous place with little light and warmth. Prey scurries through the undergrowth, but don't bother trying to catch it. You may only come here if a Starless cat comes and takes you here. Starless cats are the cats who live here. StarClan may not come here either unless they have come to fetch a cat that is not Starless.
Tigerstar- A large, muscular tom that looks like a tiger and has long, hooked, claws. He is dark, murderous, and evil, and killed many cats. He tried to kill his leader, and was killed by the leader of a cat from a Clan full of rogues. He visits cats in dreams.
