Role-playing can be confusing at times, especially to those who are new to it. So, these rules — well, guidelines, really — are here to make role-playing easier to understand for all. All role-playing topics are located under Areas of the Forest and Ceremonies; anything out of that is just member chat, essentially.

Posting Rules:

  1. Role-play in third person. Roleplay this way because you aren't actually the cat, they're just your character.
    Ex: (Wrong) I walked through the bushes and pounced on the mouse.
    Ex: (Right) Mistpelt walked through the bushes and pounced on the mouse.
  2. All role-playing topics are in past-tense. Like the actual Warriors books.
    → Ex: (Wrong) Mistpelt walks down the Thunderpath, and she sees the intruders a couple of fox lengths away.
    Ex: (Right) Mistpelt walked down the Thunderpath, and she saw the intruders a couple of fox lengths away.
  3. Please try to write with good grammar and spelling. It can be hard for others to read someone's post if it doesn't have punctuation or if all the words have typos. We understand that some members are young and new to roleplaying, however, so please just try your best!
    Ex: (Wrong) msitpelt rann threw the bushese ot the noyse whats going on she mewed.
    Ex: (Right) Mistpelt ran through the bushes to the noise. "What's going on?!" She mewed.
  4. Please don't post in old topics. Check the date on the latest post if you are unsure if it's recent. After about a month, it's considered an old topic.

Character Rules:

  1. You may have up to three characters. Preferably, each character should be in a different Clan, but they don't have to be.
  2. You may have a fourth special slot if you have a Tier 5 Warrior or a Tier 4 Medicine cat. After the transition of the new ranking system, any roleplayer with a Tier 5 Warrior or Tier 4 Medicine cat may have the right to use a fourth character slot.
    → This fourth character can be a kit, an apprentice or a rogue/outsider (in this last case, you can't rank them up and if they wish to join a clan, they MUST start as apprentices).
    → You may only make this character a warrior if you get rid of one of your three main characters (it doesn't need to be the Tier 5 warrior). However, once you kill one of your main three to make space for this new warrior, you won't be able to use this benefit from the same T5 warrior or T4 medicine cat, meaning that to get a new chance for a new fourth slot will require that you must rank another character to said Tiers.
    → For staff to know you have all the conditions to have this slot, you must be posting your warrior's rank regularly in the respective Clan Ranks' threads.
    → Having a deputy or leader does not give you the right to have this fourth slot. If your cat is a T5 warrior and becomes a deputy before you utilize the slot, you won't be allowed to make a fourth character. However, if you use this special slot before your cat becomes a high rank, you may keep it.
    → For more information about the ranking, look at our Rank System Topic.
  3. Queens and elders count towards your three main characters. They do not have special slot allowances. Elders are not allowed to reproduce in any manner. Formerly, queens and elders had special slot allowances and did not count towards your character limit; they had to be a senior warrior and have their application approved to retire. This was changed during the Newleaf Tears plot in 2019 and now they count as regular slots.  
  4. There are no Missing Cats allowed. If you want to make a new cat and decide to have one of your existing cats go "missing", they are automatically considered dead. They are not allowed to ever return or be roleplayed in any capacity.
  5. All kits with a forbidden heritage must have parents that exist on WCC. We do not allow NPC Parents with complex backstories such as being a former deputy, being in a cross-clan relationship or having run away from the clan. If you wish for parents with complex backstories, you must arrange for this with a fellow roleplayer.

Roleplaying Rules:

  1. Topics going at the SAME TIME do not relate to each other.
  2. No paradoxing. Only once a topic is finished does a cat have a memory of that topic in other topics created after the first was finished. It may sound confusing, but topics shouldn't last all that long.
  3. You must finish a topic with the same rank you started. If a member was, for example, a kit when posting in a topic but had their ceremony and is now an apprentice, they are still a kit in that topic, NOT an apprentice. They need to finish that topic how they started it: as a kit.
  4. Don't control another member's cat in topics. If they're not posting, wait. Give them time; you don't know how their life works. For all you know, they may only get two hours of time a day to go on, or they're on vacation, or they had an urgent matter to attend to, or they forgot to log off, etc., etc.
  5. Absolutely no Godmodding. This is when one plays a character that can never be destroyed, harmed, is avoiding impossible amounts of damage, etc. The character, however, can hurt and/or kill the other characters without giving the other characters a chance. It is also when your cat knows information that they shouldn't. Do not be a Godmodder.
  6. Give members a chance to post. If there are more than two members involved in a topic, give everyone a chance to say something. You never know when someone may have a really good reply. Try to follow a posting order.
  7. Go with the flow of the topic. Whoever started it had something in mind when they made it, so don't just have a fox come out of nowhere to attack you, or interrupt a member when they're addressing another cat. It's rude and makes the topic-starter feel bad.
  8. Maybe most important of all, ACT YOUR RANK. If you're a kit, act like a kit. You don't know anything! You've barely even been around! If you're an apprentice, act like an apprentice. You know some things at first, sure, but that's only what you were able to gather from living for six moons inside your camp. You need to LEARN what ShadowClan smells like. You need to LEARN what deathberries are. You need to LEARN the proper hunting position. You need to LEARN what the Thunderpath is. Please don't act like you know everything just so you can get your warrior name; it doesn't work like that, and it'll just take longer. When you're a warrior, you can assume you know a lot by now, but if you haven't seen something in a topic, you don't know it.
  9. All cats hoping to move/join a clan must ask the leader of that clan for permission before joining, regardless of age. Even if a warrior hopes to adopt a Rogue/Loner/Kittypet kit, they must have the permission of a Clan leader. Whether this is RPed or dealt with through PMs is up to you.
  10. You may not make any prophecies without an administrator's permission.
  11. StarClan reveals warnings and prophecies to leaders and medicine cats, though mostly medicine cats. Prophecies may only be shown to cats of lower rank with the permission of an administrator.
  12. Absolutely no mating scenes. This includes implying that your cats mated and force-mating. No mating whatsoever. Force-mating is not allowed to be implied either.
  13. All cats must wait until they are warriors to have kits.
