Welcome to the 7th Anniversary World Expansion Contest! After 7 years, it would be nice to have some new places to play in, and that’s where you come in. If you’ve ever wished there was a certain board for your characters to explore, anywhere in the valley, now’s your chance to see it come to life!
The board must be a place in the valley or immediate surrounding mountains, no faraway lands.
If your entry is chosen, you will get 50 prey and the entry will become an actual board for people to RP in. There is no limit to how many of your entries can be chosen, so you can win this prize many times over.
The wording of your original write-up/title for the board may be edited by staff as they see fit, but you will still get full credit and the full prey prize for it. If your entry is chosen, Fate will retain full rights to it and you may not ask for it to be removed at a later date for any reason.
If you’re interested in entering this contest, simply fill out the short form below and reply to this thread. Please make only one post to include all your entries.

Board Title: Abandoned Warrens Board Description: An area that used to be home to a rabbit colony, long since abandoned. Now LightningClan tunnelers use it as a practice area. Board Location: Within LightningClan territory.
Board Title: Secluded Cave Board Description: A hidden cave behind a waterfall that can comfortably fit two patrols worth of cats. Many snakes, bats, and rats make their home here. It is often used by loners and rogues who need a safe haven. Board Location: The mountains
Lightningclan: Thistletongue | Goldenpaw Stoneclan: Dawnchaser | Alderfrost | Tumbleheart Rainclan: Waspstrike | Emberlight | Sablepaw Nightclan: Breezepaw | Privetshade | Frostjaw Treeclan: Foxfur Tribe: Stone that Blocks Stream keeping up with the gingers
Board Description: A massive Cave system full of dead ends, sudden drops, jagged rocks and darkness. The possibility of getting lost is huge, with many ways in and out, and flash flooding is always possible. A good place to meet in seclusion if you're careful.

Board Title: The Rat Shack. Board Description: An old, run-down wooden hut that was built many seasons ago by a lone twoleg. It has fallen to ruin since that twoleg's death, and is now over-run by a colony of ravenous rats. Board Location: The Mountains.
Board Title: Mountain Stream. Board Description: A tiny, crystal-clear stream that bubbles down from the highest mountain peaks and winds aimlessly throughout the Tribe of Forgotten Waters territory. It is far too shallow for fish, but can make a relaxing place to cool down or get a drink in the height of the warm season. Board Location: Tribe of Forgotten Waters.
Board Title: The Fallen Giant. Board Description: A huge fallen pine whose log has partially rotted away. The log is hollow, though the tunnel running through is a tight squeeze. Apprentices love to dare eachother to crawl through the foul-smelling darkness. Board Location: NightClan.
Board Title: Salmon Falls. Board Description: A small waterfall that tumbles over a short drop, surrounded by drooping willow trees. During the salmon season, the fish can be seen attempting to hurl themselves up the waterfall against the force of the tumbling water. Board Location: RainClan.

Board Title: Hidden Pool Board Description: A deep, long cave winds far down underground to a hidden oasis. A beautiful stream that runs underground pools into a small opened Cavern where Stalactites and Stalagmites grow. Bats and rats are the only thing that take solace in the dark, damp area and can be good hunting for a small period of time. During heavy rain times the stream floods and the cavern disappears until the waters recede. Board Location: Mountains near Nightclan and Rainclan territory
Board Title: Misty Ledge Board Description: The highest point of the Valley Wall, a massive ledge that hangs over the Valley of the Clans. It is massive, wide and sturdy enough for daring cats to stand atop and look out over the valley. It has a constant mist that surrounds it due to high altitude and low clouds. On clear days the ledge can easily be seen in the distance from any Clan, however nastier weathers keep it hidden. Board Location: Mountains, close to the Tribe
Board Title: Bluegrass Glade Board Description: Hiding in the forest is a clearing that is teeming with tall, almost blue colored grass. During the day it is a seemingly normal looking patch of grass but when the moon rises, the grass almost glows. It is a great location to hunt for prey at any time. Board Location: Treeclan
Board Title: Lichen Grove Board Description: Located in Nightclan's pine forest is a shaded clearing where moss grows rampant on the forest floor. A cat would have to dig in order to find dirt in this part of the wood. The shade here provides a wonderful place for various herbs to flourish. Board Location: Nightclan
Board Title: Umbrous Gorge Board Description: Hidden in a gap in the mountainside is an opening that houses a clear pool of fresh water. Around this pool are various types of plants that are uncommon to come across. The roof of stone overhead has slowly opened up, allowing some sun to reach the inner walls. Board Location: Anywhere in the mountains
Board Title: Shady Crevice Board Description: A section of the mountain has seemingly hollowed itself out, creating a deep crevice in the rock wall. This serves as a great place to hide from the elements and search for prey that also use the crevice to rest. Board Location: Anywhere in the mountains
Board Title: Bouldered Bluff Board Description: Near some of the steeper walls of the mountain is a location where there were once many rock slides. The land underneath has been buried making it a terrain of nothing but varying sizes of rocks. Prey is typically found hiding among these rocks. Board Location: Anywhere in the mountains

Board Title: Owl Tree Board Description: A great gnarled sycamore, considered the oldest tree in NightClan's forest. Owls have been known to periodically roost inside it, with pellets, droppings and cobwebs scattered amongst the huge protruding roots at its base. It's a great source of cobwebs for NightClan medicine cats - just make sure the tree isn't occupied first. Board Location: NightClan Territory
Board Title: The Mosswood Board Description: The moss-and-lichen covered remains of an old stream; weakened by flooding, the stream banks collapsed and the trees fell with it. Now it makes for a shady gathering spot for apprentices, with plenty of nooks and crannies for rodents to be found. It is the main source of moss in TreeClan territory. Board Location: TreeClan Territory
Board Title: Heather Hill Board Description: One of the taller points of LightningClan's territory, it is richly populated with heather, crowberry and short grasses. The crowberry shrubs attract birds of all types, not just crows. Not for the inexperienced hunter. Apprentices often race each other to the top of Heather Hill. Board Location: LightningClan Territory
Board Title: Berry Marsh Board Description: A place of rich, fertile soil and very large blue elderberry bushes, which have huge cream-colored flowers in Newleaf, and grow berries in Greenleaf. Temporary shelter can be found inside the bushes to escape the elements. Apprentices and young warriors frequently use the bushes as a hangout spot. Board Location: RainClan Territory
Board Title: One Tree Board Description: A small, single petrified tree on StoneClan's territory. It's so old and so petrified, elders take turns guessing what kind of tree it actually is - and which leader's reign it lived through. Apprentices come here to sharpen their claws on the worn bark. The bleached remains of a large prey animal are half-buried in the dry soil around it. A good place to hunt lizards. Board Location: StoneClan Territory
Board Title: The Bone Place Board Description: The semi-buried ribcage of a bull elk, to-bes and young cave-guards can use it as a battle arena to test their fighting skills. One to-be often plays raptor, one to-be plays prey-hunter while the others take turns attacking or guarding. Board Location: Mountains, Tribe
Board Title: Rook's Hollow Board Description: An ancient hollowed out tree, the boughs are charred from lightning and twisted with age. It is a cornicopia of cobwebs, animal bones (many of them feline), teeth and claws. The most unusual feature is the dingy old jar kept in the back, empty of whatever oddities it once held. The skeleton of its owner lays beside it. Board Location: Just outside LightningClan Territory
Note: descriptions are probably longer than 50 words and can be pared down, pictures included in some just as a reference.

Board Title: Jumping Ridge Board Description: A steep wall dotted with ledges leading up the Misty Ledge. The distances between them vary between easy and difficult; the Tribe uses them to hone their to-bes' jumping capabilities. Board Location: The mountains, near the Tribe's cave
Board Title: Rippling Lake Board Description: A large body of water whose surface is rarely calm. Fed by the river, it offers fresh water and a variety of prey for the loners of the valley. Board Location: Unclaimed land outside of RainClan territory
Board Title: Basking Stones Board Description: Rocky area perfect for sunbathing. The rocks gather heat even when the sun is weak in leaf-bare, but it can often become unbearable in the peak of greenleaf; take care not to get overheated. Board Location: Unclaimed land outside of StoneClan territory
Board Title: The Pit Board Description: A slight crater near the base of the mountain, skeletons from Demon's kills often appear here after falling from the den above. Smart cats stay away from the foul-smelling carrion place, stupidly brave cats venture near to explore. Board Location: Mountains
