basic training guide
+ No matter what clan you are from you MUST go through AT LEAST Five days of training in order to become a warrior. Your clan may have more days but cannot have less than five.
+ Your clan will most likely have their own specific training guides. Those are to be followed before falling back onto the default training listed here.
+ You can train as much as you'd like everyday, however you can only count one session per day.
+ Mentors should share the same Timezone as their apprentices. If your timezones are not working out please message your clan leader or deputy for a switch.
+ Warriors cannot train another cats apprentice without their mentor's permission. If their mentor has not been active in more than three days, the apprentice should be given a new mentor.
+ After you have completed your Five days of training, you can ask your mentor for an assessment.
(Assessments essentially act as a six day of training and cannot be done on the fifth day)
+ Your leader should be online for your Assessment, However it is not necessary
S E S S I O N O N E
Apprentices should be taken out on a tour of their clans territory. Your apprentice should be made aware of other clan borders. Be sure to point out important landmarks as well!
Along your way, show them good places to gather moss among the territory. Upon arriving back at camp your apprentice should make sure all nests are cleaned.
S E S S I O N T W O
Take your apprentice out on a patrol to mark the borders. Teach them the importance of having a well marked border.
Borders that are left unmarked increase the risk of your clan being invaded.
S E S S I O N T H R E E
Show your apprentice how to hunt and all the best places. Once you seem confident in their hunting, send them off on their own to catch some prey. Have them return to camp with their prey at sundown.
After they are well rested you should take them out to practice scent tracking. Make sure they know how to use their Scent Tracker before doing anything else.
You should essentially play a game of hide and seek among the territory. Start off easy and then gradually make it more difficult.
You can trip them up by moving around.
S E S S I O N F O U R
Basic Combat Training
Bring your apprentice to the training area and teach them how to fight. Your clan should have its own special guide on combat training but you must teach them the very basics first.
+ A clan cat does not need to kill to win his or her battles. When an opposing cat is on low health they should retreat. Do not hurt or chase after a retreating cat.
+ If your health is four hearts or lower you must retreat from a battle. If a battle is taking place in your camp, retreat to the medicine cat den, nursery, or elders den.
+ Never harm a Medicine cat, Elder, Or Kit.
S E S S I O N F I V E
Ambush / Invasion Training
Make sure your apprentice understands the rules of an invasion and perhaps give them a little pop quiz to make sure they understand.
Once you're ready take your apprentice out in the territory to do some hunting. While your apprentice is hunting they should be aware of their surroundings as you will essentially be hunting them down. Once you've landed the first hit a fight should begin. Once your health has gotten low, retreat and praise your apprentice. Tips can be given as well!
Your apprentice should catch at least five pieces of prey before starting the next section.
After you've completed Ambush training, gather up a few cats to work on Invasion training! You should have one additional clanmate help you out with this step but you can have more than that helping out if you see fit.
You and your apprentice should go to a random part of the territory whilst your additional clanmate guards the training area.
Your apprentice should act as though they are leading an invasion. They should come up with a clear strategy for catching your clanmate off guard in order to win the mock invasion.
You can give tips but in the end it should be your apprentice making the strategy for this session.
A S S E S S M E N T D A Y
Before starting your Assessment you should ask your mentor if you have any questions or if you'd like to review some things first.
Once you are ready to begin you will be sent out of camp at dawn. You should hunt as much prey as you can before dusk.
Be aware that your mentor is watching you. Even if you can't see them.
If you fail your assessment you will have to wait one day before being able to retake it.
If your mentor deems your Assessment a success, they will alert the leader and request a ceremony.

Many Many Moons ago, back when Sunstar, Hailstar, Cedarstar, And Heatherstar led the clans, There was a prophecy.
On the third night of the great cold, A mysterious wind will bring with it a shroud of darkness. Four must become one to follow the darkest path under a storm of blood.
Medicine cats struggled to find the meaning of mysterious wind and the great shadow... Until Leaf-Bare arrived. The mysterious wind ended up being a powerful storm, bringing about a horrible plague that couldn't be cured. The storm never ended, the territories growing flooded and nearly uninhabitable.
The plague caused cats to suddenly collapse within a day or infection. Their eyes seemed cloudy on first inspection... They would become extremely lethargic, unable to hold food or herbs down without vomiting. They seemed to be in some form of a trance... unable to communicate clearly, and seeming incredibly unstable on their paws, frequently collapsing and seizing on the ground.
On the third night of infection, they would suddenly get to their paws, their eyes, bloodshot and red... Mouth pouring drool... looking as if they had gone insane... They no longer had control of their bodies, Lunging at those closest to them with sudden, unimaginable strength... Ripping apart whatever they could get their jaws on...
Medicine cats were to be guarded at all times, but this wasn't enough... Even touching an infected cat could cause your downfall.
One young apprentice received a vision one night... Showing the bodies of all the clan cats torn apart, eyes bloodshot and clouded over... Blood pouring from themselves. The cats had all gone insane with the third moon sickness and had torn themselves to shreds...
The apprentice's breath caught in his throat as they realized the blood that poured from their throats seemed to make a trail... Wind and rain hit him from behind with incredible force, as if pushing his paws forward to follow the trail...
This was the first time a vision had been received in many moons... and it was clear.
Leave the forest as one, or the clans will perish.
The clans traveled for moons, eventually finding the lake territories and settling in.
Starclan had been silent ever since...
A young Shadowclan warrior by the name of Koisong has received an important prophecy...
When the clans fall beneath the weight of the sky... Only those guided by shadow can save the clans from disaster...
It is now up to the clans to uncover the true meaning of the prophecy before it's too late...
What is clan strength?
Clan Strength is a way of measuring how powerful a clan is based on what they've proven in battles.
Clan Strength points are earned by participating in Invasions. Your clan can earn and lose strength based on how you behave during and after invasions. Clan strength can also be earned by being allied with other clans who win in invasions.
Every month the clan with the highest amount of strength will receive prizes.
Prizes are given at the end of each month. Leaders are in charge of distributing any prizes gained.
How can I make sure my clan gets the most strength possible?
The staff member that oversaw your invasion has full control over giving your clan points based on how well your clan performed in their eyes. There IS a staff guideline for giving Clan Strength that must be followed, this way Clan Strength cannot be given unfairly. If you believe the staff member that oversaw your Invasion is not giving points fairly please message Gh0stKitty.
Here are some tips on getting the most Clan Strength out of an invasion.
+ Your clanmates followed direction perfectly.
+ Nobody got lost or left behind in enemy territory.
+ Your invasion was quick and well thought out.
+ Strategy worked with little to no issues.
+ No kits/elders/or medicine cats were injured on either side.
+ After the invasion ended your clan left enemy territory immediately without lingering and continuing to fight.
