As a rule, the cats of Treeclan live a comfortable, mostly threat-free life within the Valley, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible for cats to die young. At present, there are eight ways a death can occur – not including the extra methods you might come up with yourselves. These eight COD’s are listed below.


Bᴇᴇ Sᴡᴀʀᴍs

Treeclan is home to several bee colonies, but one in particular is known for both it’s massive size and its exceptionally bad temper. Cats who stray too close to the Bees Nest always run the risk of triggering swarms, and sometimes those swarms kill.

Fᴏx Aᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs

These are a rarity within the Valley, but on occasion foxes do appear, and they’ve been known to attack any cats that cross their paths. The last confirmed fox sighting occurred roughly 20 seasons (five years) before the roleplay began, but it’s possible an unlucky warrior or two has encountered one since.

Rᴏɢᴜᴇ/Lᴏɴᴇ Aᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs

There are many passes through the mountains, and as a result rogues/lones have been known to find their way into the valley. Most of these cats are either peaceful enough to be invited into the clan, or else driven out with relative ease, but sometimes there are casualties.


Ailments such as Greencough, fever, and simple infection can take the lives of any cat in the clan, and are especially deadly to kits and elders.


Branch and tree hunters are always at risk of missing their footing and taking nasty falls, and this is particularly true of the young and reckless. Cats may also fall from the Mountains, if they decide climb a little higher than usual, or else lose their footing along the Divide and plunge into the chasm.

Hᴀᴡᴋ Aᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋs

There are currently three active Hawk Spots within Treeclan, and a further two suspected Hawk Spots. Adult cats are usually safe from these birds, but the same can’t be said of kits and apprentices.

Tʜᴇ Rᴏɢᴜᴇ Iɴᴠᴀsɪᴏɴ

Approximately one moon before the roleplay began, Treeclan’s camp came under attack from a Rogue band. This battle (and the boar-rogue battle that preceded it) was by far the most violent conflict Treeclan has faced in living memory, and many in the clan were injured or killed.

Please visit the corresponding history page for a full account of this event.

Dᴀʀᴋ Fᴏʀᴇsᴛ Exᴘʟᴏʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ

Most cats steer clear from the Dark Forest, but for reasons best known to themselves the occasional warrior has been known to stray deep into this uncharted region of the Valley. Unfortunately, none who do so ever return, so these cats are always presumed dead.

Greymuzzles: Hi there! Have to say it's looking pretty snazzy now - and I especially like the fact that your main menu bar stays at the top of the screen as you scroll down. Much more accessible that way~ Feb 28, 2020 15:56:32 GMT
