Happy Spring Everyone!
Lots of news to cover!
First, thank you to everyone who submitted and voted for Of the Season, and congratulations to Ghost the Undead Goddess for being Member of the Season for Leafbare! If you would like to view the rest of the results, click Here.
Thank you to our lovely graphics mod neversky for the fantastic Newleaf skin!
We started off the month of March with a week-long break for our members, but while that was going on, the staff were busy updating all of the ranks, FateDex, Taken Names and Clan Info. We're not perfect though, so if you could please look through the FateDex/Ranks/Taken Names and do not see your cats there, or see some other type of error, PLEASE let us know so we can correct it ASAP.
Please mark your active threads as ACTIVE, or else they will be moved by the end of the month. Any threads you want archived, just drop the link into Discord's Thread-Collection Channel.
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!
Hello & Goodbye
It's always sad to see one of our members leave. williams has said goodbye to Fate, but not to the friendships made over the past two years.
We will miss you, Will, and we wish you all the best on work and whatever life has in store for you. <3
Likewise, let's give a big hello to our three newest members, @hollyleaf102 @peach and @dangernoodle ! We always appreciate some fresh faces around the forum, and hope to see you guys around for seasons to come.
RainClan -Deputy Auditions are still OPEN! -Dewfrost is now an NPC, and as such, the rank of Medicine Cat Apprentice will be opened up sometime in the nearby future. Keep an eye out for those Auditions.
NightClan -Auditions for NightClan Deputy will be posted soon. Stay tuned!
Tribe -Skyteller will be looking out for a new Lead Prey-Hunter & Lead Cave-Guard soon. Keep an eye out.
For the High Rank Check, March will be a Freebie Month! No high rank posts are required, though if you happen to reach 5 for any of your high ranks naturally, we applaud your efforts.
NightClan has secured the Deer Path at the cost of Blackwolf, a senior warrior of the Clan. Stability is far from achieved, but it's a step in the right direction in the eyes of the Clan.
Unfortunately, Newleaf begins with tragedy for NightClan.
Briarthroat, while leading a seemingly mundane patrol along the edge of the territory, is chased (and presumably eaten) by Demon. (PRP found HERE!) Though NightClan searches for him or his remains, the Clan has to face the ugly truth that Briarthroat is not coming home.
Foxstar, exhausted from the Deer Path battle and the illness consuming her, dies without announcing a successor.
The Clan will be in disarray, and leadership will fall somewhat to the Medicine Cats as the only living authority figures left. That is, until one young she-cat decides to take matters into her own paws.
Darkstorm will take the position of de-facto leader of NightClan. By the time of the Newleaf Gathering (Mid May), Darkstorm will have become Darkstar, appointed a new deputy, and finally brought stability to NightClan.
There will be a thread kicking off this next stage of NightClan's succession plot; keep an eye out over the next few days!
That's all the news we have so far! Did we miss anything? Did you enjoy the start-of-season break or thought it was useless? Let us know. Fate Staff are always open to Member feedback and interacting with the community.
Have a lovely Newleaf everyone, and happy plotting! -Fate Staff
