Summer is here! For those of you with summer vacations, enjoy~
Thanks to everyone who submitted newleaf OTS nominations and voted, and congratulations to Ginger for winning Member of the Season! The rest of the OTS results can be found HERE.
Fate will be 7 years old in August and there will be a contest or two to celebrate, including a world building contest where you will have the chance to submit ideas for new boards to roleplay in. If anyone has any suggestions for other possible contests or events, please let the staff know!
Please remember that if there are any threads you have finished and want archived, drop the link into Discord's Thread-Collection Channel so the staff can move them and keep the boards clean.
Note about Training Threads
In order for Clan leaders to know how an apprentice's training is progressing, members must post in the Apprentice Activity Tracker when they have one of the requirements met. This is typically the job of the Mentor, but apprentices are welcome to take the initiative.
If anyone is struggling to get training threads done, please message one of the staff and we'll do our best to help!
A bit late to be considered an announcement but worth mentioning, although not a complete goodbye, Heli has stepped down as admin of Fate. You can read her final address HERE if you haven't already. She is still sticking around to roleplay, however, no worries!
RainClan -Deputy Auditions are closed! RainClan will have a new deputy in a few short months, so good luck to all the candidates~ -Dewfrost is an NPC and as such, auditions for the rank of Medicine Cat Apprentice will be posted soon, keep an eye out!
The Newleaf Gathering marked the beginning of a dangerous time in the valley. Tensions between NightClan and TreeClan are at an all time high, after Lionstar's open refusal to acknowledge Darkstar's leadership in the wake of Gorsetail's severe injury.
With the former deputy of TreeClan suffering from irreparable brain damage, it brings a question to everyone's mind - if TreeClan, and those closest to Gorsetail, will ever heal from this atrocity.
LightningClan is under new leadership, now helmed by Redstar and Owlmind; testing the reach of their power and taking advantage of a distracted TreeClan, LightningClan has moved their scentline to claim the Open Woods as theirs. (Here)
RainClan, with a bold declaration by Silverstar, has stated firmly that they will not be dragged into the NightClan/TreeClan battle, even going so far as to ban TreeClan's medicine cat Falconstorm from gathering herbs on RainClan territory. (Here)
StoneClan has likewise kept themselves removed from the turmoil, though it may not be too much longer before LightningClan turns a sharp eye upon the rugged Clan to the north. Hawkstar has reached his 112 moon. A change in leadership appears to be close at hand as deputy Smokestorm prepares to take up the mantle.
Mark your calendars and get your umbrellas, Greenleaf 18 (July 27th-July 29th) will be a flash flood! RainClan and NightClan cats will face the worst of it, but it is sure to impact all Clans in some way.
