Welcome to The Cursed Era, a casual Warrior Cats forum that focuses on the trials and tribulations of a single clan: Treeclan. We are currently a very quiet forum (with much of our conversation happening over PMs), but hope to launch a member-driven plot in the near future - all we need are a few dedicated members, and a handful of interesting characters! Until then you’re free to explore as you will, though please note that much of the site’s lore is member-only. There are also a few non-functional buttons dotted about the site: these will be updated as soon as the corresponding pages have been released.
Please note that weekdays are currently our most active times. Weekends (and holidays) tend to be very quiet!
Please also be aware that this is the ‘honeymoon’ phase of TCE: as such our existing plot thread merely lays the groundwork for our first roleplays. Additional details will be released in due course.
A list of upcoming / in-progress features can be found in this thread, and you're welcome to post here if you have any suggestions for TCE's development/improvement. Alternatively, if you are a guest please feel free to post any feedback you have in our guestbook!
We are currently looking for a Junior Medicine Cat! Please check our High Positions thread for more information.
August 19th - Treeclan now has a Senior Medicine Cat! This position will be held by Cloverheart - A cat who canonically took the position a couple of moons prior to the Rogue Invasion. Her NPC predecesors are Blackwillow (second-to-last SMC; deceased) and Ripplestorm (previous SMC; retired).
Please welcome our newest member; Arielle!
August 3rd - Intra-Clan Conflicts, a page summarising typical Bird/Boar responses to disputes, is now available. In addition, we now have a Global Contents page to assist guests and new members!
July 30th - Please welcome our newest member; Haruspexx!
July 29th - Due to a lack of responses, the Discord poll has been extended by three weeks. It will now be closed on Aug 18th.
July 26th - Crowfall will be Treeclan's new deputy! As mentioned in a previous news post, the official change-over will be occuring in an IC thread to maintain story continuity. You can read/participate here!
July 25th - TCE now has a bonus scheme!
Please welcome our newest members; Berylheart and Kiwi!
July 22 - A new version of the Newleaf theme has been released! The old version (now named Newleaf [Pink]) remains usable and can be switched to in the normal manner.
An ancient oak notable for being the widest and tallest tree in the clan's territory. Cats who can reach its highest branches are considered master Tree Hunters, and will be recognised as the best in their craft for the rest of their lives.
Missed a previous part of our timeline, and wish you could have added your characters into the action? Find yourself wanting to explore a different plot line? Wondering what would have happened if your cat had given a slightly different answer to that big, important question? Use this board to explore these and any other AU events you can dream up!
Shoutbox quiet? We may be using our member-only Discord - but feel free to post here too!
Greymuzzles: Pretty cute that you're so excited, too! Definitely bodes very well (though I hope your fiancé doesn't mind all of the warriors chatter XD)

kiwi: Aw, thank you. And he doesn't mind at all. I'm currently converting him into a warriors fan anyway. He randomly picked up a Power of Three book and fell in love there? So I'm getting him hooked.
Jul 26, 2019 9:17:26 GMT
Greymuzzles: Well that's good! And definitely a bonus that he's being drawn into warriors, too~
Jul 26, 2019 9:31:01 GMT
Heavens: Hey Grey, about the Bonus Scheme. Can we claim things that we have already done? like can I claim 'Into The Clan' even though I done this before the Scheme?
Jul 26, 2019 10:12:06 GMT
Heavens: Hi! kiwi's are my fav fruit
Jul 26, 2019 10:50:05 GMT
Heavens: or one of my fav
Jul 26, 2019 10:50:12 GMT
Greymuzzles: I'm afraid you won't be able to claim Into the Clan or First Steps (which somehow didn't make it into the bonus thread when I was moving the write-up across--will add that back in in a few), because you would have been given those bonuses more [c]
Jul 26, 2019 13:14:57 GMT
Greymuzzles: informally when the original two bonuses (for posting a character and making your first roleplay post) were rolled out. The same goes for everyone else who made their first character/roleplay post before the scheme was posted. Wouldn't be fair to give [c]
Jul 26, 2019 13:16:33 GMT
Greymuzzles: you guys the one-time bonuses twice! You're free to claim any of the others, though
Jul 26, 2019 13:16:57 GMT
kiwi: Kiwi's a good fruit Heavens ^^ I do like it
Jul 26, 2019 21:59:41 GMT
kiwi: Howdy in advance to all who come on;; Nice to meet you! I'm playing Crowfall, your newest deputy. I hope to get a chance to chat with you all

TCE is set many, many generations after the books, rendering the canonical characters distant relics of a largely forgotten past. Life in the Lake Territories soured long before our roleplay’s timeline, and a breakdown of the original clans forced our character’s ancestors to leave their homes in search of better prospects. Eventually these cats found their way to a vast stretch of mountains, and on traversing a long, treacherous pass they at last stepped into a sheltered valley; their new home.
The descendants of these founding cats came to identify themselves first as The Valley Clans, and then simply as Treeclan. Although there was once a second clan (Stoneclan) within the Valley, Treeclan is now the only known clan, their neighbours having perished several generations before current events. As such Treeclan now rules all accessible space within the Valley, and they have come to enjoy a comfortable, almost spoilt life: one rich in food and scarce in threat. They seem to have an almost idyllic existence—but with no external forces to keep the clan united, its cats have taken internal dramas to new heights.
A long line of wise and strong Leaders have managed to minimise the rifts and prevent the clan from imploding, but now a new cat has stepped into their paws. Now, in the very dawn of his reign, the cracks are beginning to show...
Senior Med. Cat
Junior Med. Cat
Med. Cat Apprentice
Leafbare’s last clutches have fully fallen from the Valley, and the new growth of Newleaf is everywhere in sight. The forest and plains alike are awash with the vibrant colours of fresh flowers and young grass, and prey populations are already booming, making hunting a breeze. The early mildness of the season has now matured into a comfortable, stable warmth, and the nights lack their previous chill, retaining a degree of heat right into their depths. In all it’s proving a comfortable, bountiful season, and even the usual rains remain light and infrequent, saving the clan from the damp.
