Will you play a Mighty Boar, a Sleek Bird, or a Pitiful Borderline?
Will you narrow the division, or drive it wider than ever before?
Welcome to the Cursed Era; a casual Warrior Cats forum that focuses on the trials and tribulations of Treeclan. We are currently a very quiet forum, but are slowly working through a member-and-prompt-driven plot. We hope that things will begin to speed up in the near future, but until then you’re free to explore as you will – though please note that much of the site’s lore is member-only. You can find a full contents of our lore (and other pages) here!
Please be aware that this is something of a ’honeymoon’ phase: our existing plot thread mainly lays the groundwork, but 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 questions or feedback you have in our guestbook!
We are currently looking for a Junior Medicine Cat! Please check our High Positions thread for more information.
April 28th - For personal reasons, Arielle has decided to go on an extended (possibly permanent) hiatus from TCE, and has stepped down from the Senior Medicine Cat position as a part of this. For the purposes of the roleplay, Cloverheart has chosen to become a warrior and has been succeeded by her JMC. As such, all records have been updated to reflect the change and the SMC position has been re-opened. See the High Positions thread for more information about these positions.
Please join us in wishing Arielle all the best during their hiatus, and in hoping that they will continue to pop into our Discord so that we can all keep in touch.
April 27th - Please welcome our newest member; Krazykitty00!
April 26th - Please welcome our newest members; Neonsparks and Goldenboy!
April 22nd - Some changes have been made to our discord to allow us to open it to guests and new members! Going forwards, anyone can join the server and use our new 'Mountain Passes' channel - but most other channels will be kept member-only.
April 15th - Please welcome our newest member: Jas!
February 19th - TCE has now advanced to its third IC moon! See this post for the update.
February 6th - TCE has officially reopened, bringing an end to its hiatus. A bundle of updates have been released in celebration of our return, and our focus for the next couple of months will be on activity and recruitment. You can find a full breakdown of the new releases here!
Welcome to The Cursed Era!

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 or a piece of your character's history? 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 or pre-roleplay events you can dream up!
Shoutbox quiet? We may be using our Discord - but feel free to post here too!
TDH Staff: Thanks! A recent admin helped with everything. Although, she had to step down bc of the pressure.

Greymuzzles: Shame she had to step down - but goes that way sometimes. Being staff can be pretty hard work

Greymuzzles: Hi Lynx! We tend to move at a slower pace than some sites, since most of us are wrapped up with life, but we're definitely still kicking!

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...

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.
