The Elder’s Stories are a collection of pages designed to provide our members with details of The Valley Cats’ history. As the name suggests these are all events that might make it into the stories told to kits (and warriors) by elders, though the details may be changed, embellished, and disregarded in the telling. That said, the records contained here are the canonical versions of The Valley Cats’ history (as Treeclan knows it), and cover the key events from the time Thunderclan, Riverclan, Shadowclan and Windclan fell, to the present point of TCE’s roleplay.

Please note that some segments of The Valley Cats’ history were originally written as one continuous story, and that they have since been split into smaller segments to make reading less overwhelming. You may also find that some segments seem short, biased, or thin on details; this is because our history is currently presented as Treeclan knows it, and the full accounts have been edited to reflect this fact. If TCE’s future allows it, some of these pages may eventually be updated to provide a more complete (and accurate) overview of events. In addition, new pages will be added to summarise TCE’s completed site plots.
