Welcome to WCC! Here are our latest announcements:
The Clans are being greeted by silence from their ancestors, unless StarClan is voicing their fury. With the anger of the stars against them, how will the cats of the clans fare as newleaf reclaims the area?
Activity checks take place on the 1st of the month. This month's activity check has been completed and closed. If you missed it, please PM a staff member with the filled form for each of your characters.
Newleaf is steadily returning to the forest, the flowers, grasses, and trees blooming with life once more. After the flood of last Newleaf, the heavy rains seem more threatening to the clans older members, but as prey and herbs slowly return there seems to be a fragile sense of peace. What challenges will Newleaf hold for the clan cats?
Gatherings take place on the 1st of the month; keep your eyes out for a staff member's post!
Make sure to check your Clan's Key Events under the Clan Information boards to see what's happening in your Clan!
Please feel free to hit up any staff member if you have any questions!

Ranks and Stats

WCC utilizes a ranking system with requirements that must be roleplayed and fulfilled to rank up and participate in official battles. (Check out the Battle System here!) You must start as as the first rank: Kit. You then receive an Apprentice rank, then earn either their Warrior name or medicine cat name and rank depending on which path is laid out before you. Once you have received your full name, you become eligible to level up "Tiers" which increase your stats. The more you have been active and posting with a character, the higher the tier you can earn for them. Each rank and their tiers receive different Health Points (HP) and Stamina Points (SP).

Please know that these ranks do not reflect the in-character age of a cat; that is up to a roleplayer! The rank system aims solely to reward active characters with increased stats. Characters who have been in and survived more battles will have more experience than those who've been in none and their HP and SP will reflect their skill.

If you have a disabled cat, then your stats are slightly different than those of a regular cat: You will have -5 HP and -30 SP subtracted from your usual stats (Kits will retain 1 HP / 1 SP). The severity of the disability does not alter the stat reduction.

-Rank: HP/SP-
Kit: 5/15
Apprentice: 20/80
[Tier 1] Warrior: 40/120                  (formerly known as Newly Named)
[Tier 2] Warrior: 45/160                  (formerly known as Young)
[Tier 3] Warrior: 60/200
[Tier 4] Warrior: 80/240                   (formerly known as Experienced)
[Tier 5] Warrior: 100/280                 (formerly known as Senior)

-Higher Rank: HP/SP-
Medicine Cat Apprentice: 35/90
[Tier 1] Medicine Cat: 45/100            (formerly known as Newly Named)
[Tier 2] Medicine Cat: 50/120            
[Tier 3] Medicine Cat: 55/150            (formerly known as Experienced)
[Tier 4] Medicine Cat: 60/200            (formerly known as Senior)
Deputy: 100/280

[Tier 1] Rogue*: 45/140                                  
[Tier 2] Rogue*: 55/170                   (formerly known as Skilled)
[Tier 3] Rogue*: 75/200                   (formerly known as Experienced)

Eagle: 60/200
Owl: 50/120

* Clan cats who are exiled from / leave a Clan will keep the stats they had while in the Clan (e.g. an exiled Tier 2 Warrior would still have the HP/SP of a Tier 2 Warrior even as a Rogue); they may rejoin a Clan without losing their rank OR earn rogue stats and privilege of ranking after fulfilling specific requirement listed below in the Ranking Requirements.

→ Medicine Cats who transfer to warrior life must restart at Tier 1 Warrior rank (or Apprentice rank at Clan leader's discretion).
→Warriors who transfer to Medicine Cat life must restart at Tier 1 Medicine Cat rank and stats (or MCA rank at Clan leader's discretion). The former warrior may keep their full name or change it; however, they must fulfill the Medicine Cat Apprentice requirements before they are considered a fully named Medicine Cat and can begin work on Tier 1.

→ Rogues of any tier who join Clan life may do so with certain restrictions, determined by the leader (or coordinated with the rogue):
- Rogue rank must become either an Apprentice or Tier 1 Warrior depending on age. If the leader says the rogue must train as an apprentice, they must do so before they can rank to Tier 1.
- Tier 2 Rogues and Tier 3 Rogues will become either an Apprentice or a warrior. If they become a Warrior, they must start as a Tier 1 Warrior. If they are required to go through Apprentice training, then when it's time to receive their names a Tier 2 Rogue will start at Tier 2 Warrior and a Tier 3 Rogue will start at Tier 3 Warrior.

→ If you become an Elder before [Tier 5] Warrior or [Tier 4] Medicine Cat, you will retire with your current stats and you will not jump to the listed elder HP/SP. Special circumstances may be considered.

Ranking Requirements

Rank requirements are a combination of time a user must wait before obtaining the next rank or tier and specific types of in-character development topics. Each rank may have slightly different wait times and/or required topics that must be fulfilled before work can begin on the next one. At the end is the list of topics that count towards character development requirements. You can also find all of these requirements listed under the Ceremonies board in each Clan.

The wait times are included so that a character cannot go from a Kit to a Tier 3 Warrior over the course of a month. Experience comes over time, and we wish to encourage in-character development whenever possible. The real-life time requirement doesn't have an impact on your cat's in-character age.

Put your rank in the Clan/Rank section of your profile or in your signature so everybody can see it and know your HP/SP. Every Clan has an official Ranks tracker for you to utilize in their Clan Information board. Staff will reference this official list for large-scale battles and use the stats listed there for each participant, so please remember to post there so that your leader can keep your character's rank updated.

If your character goes from a medicine cat to a warrior or a warrior to a medicine cat, they must restart with the first tier of requirements for their new rank. Switching Clans does not undo your tier progress. An exiled Clan cat may keep their tier requirement progress upon joining a new Clan if the new leader allows it.

Most Higher Ranks do not have requirements the same way that warriors do; they can be found here.

A single topic can fulfill both the hunting and battle requirement so long as it uses the Hunting and Battle Systems in separate posts.
*Hunts must be completed using the Hunting (or Herb Hunting) System or they do not count; this can be a solo thread or include others; you do not need to successfully catch prey or find herbs, but your topic must reflect at least one dice roll.
**Fights must be fought using the Battle System against an enemy cat or predator or they do not count. A predator may be rolled or forced into an encounter. Sparring does not count.

***The apprentice does not need to be assigned and trained within the indicated tier; any apprentice you fully train once you fully named counts. Roleplayers may not mentor their own character. This is to encourage members to interact with each other; it especially benefits newer players who could use an active, experience roleplayer to help them learn.
**** This ranking is only for clan cats who are exiled or leave the clans willingly. They have the chance to change their clan cat to become a rogue and rank up properly from that point (as they were default rogues). Warriors may only access to this privilege after three months while kits and apprentice can do it after two weeks (all must complete their requirements)
*****Can be accomplished using the Healing System or in-character role-play development

Possible Development Topics
You may only fill one development requirement per thread (e.g. you can't use the same thread to fulfill the interact with a Clanmate and spar with a Clanmate prompts). You may not fulfill the same type of development topic multiple times in the same Tier.
You may fulfill a development requirement in the same thread as a non-development requirement (e.g. you may interact with a cat from another Clan at a Gathering and fulfill both).
- share tongues/interact with a Clanmate of any rank
- attend a Clan meeting
- interact with a cat from another Clan (cannot be in battle)
- spar with a Clanmate
- use a Clan Move
