This page acts as a hub for Treeclan’s customs; a series of traditions, values, and systems that have developed since the clan settled within the Valley. Some customs are more recent in nature, having only emerged in the last few generations, but others have been developing since the clan’s formation. That said, all of Treeclan’s customs have one thing in common: they are unique to the clan, and strongly based on their own distinct ideals and needs.

Whilst it is possible to roleplay without a detailed knowledge of all of these customs, some familiarity with most of their number is recommend to gain the best experience of Treeclan. Members are encouraged to play on these customs in their writing, and should pay particular attention to those customs that mostly strongly impact their characters. In particular, we recommend that:

All members familiarise themselves with the Bird/Boar Divide.

Those playing Treeclan’s leader or deputy familiarise themselves with the Leader and Deputy Roles.

Those playing any medicine cat position familiarise themselves with the Dual Medicine Cat System.

Those playing elders familiarise themselves with Treeclan’s Elder Care policies.

TDH Staff: Compared to the last time you saw my site, how would you say it looks now? Feb 28, 2020 15:47:05 GMT
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
TDH Staff: Thanks! A recent admin helped with everything. Although, she had to step down bc of the pressure. Feb 28, 2020 21:21:46 GMT
Greymuzzles: Shame she had to step down - but goes that way sometimes. Being staff can be pretty hard work Feb 29, 2020 8:49:16 GMT
