Welcome to Warriors into the Forest Wiki, a literate and semi-realistic Warriors roleplay site. This wiki has a certain way its run. So in case you don’t understand it, or just want to refresh yourself this guide should help. It’ll help you understand what to do before making a cat, requesting a cat, and then how to roleplay your character, or characters.
What is this roleplay about?
WITF, or Warriors into the Forest Wiki, is a slowly growing Warriors community, that has only just begun. It is a smaller wiki with a usual populace of people that stay compared to the few that come and go, so people know each other well on here and get used to new users very fast. As for the roleplay, the main clans are known as ShadeClan, NightClan and MoonClan. Currently there is only one other Clan-related group, The Rebellion, which was the cause of the Great Wars.
Creating Your Character
After reading those pages above, you should be ready to create your first character! Head to the group's talkpage, where there is the following form to fill out.
Name: Character name
Appearance: Their appearance (it should be realistic)
Character: List their key traits, preferably more than one.
Rank: You cannot request a high rank if it is your first character.
Also please don't request a high rank, as most of the time they are planned or prophesied. If you would like to have one at a future date, make sure you ask one of the users who own the leader. They'll both be able to tell you when a spot opens up to be claimed. However, don't beg for these ranks as that will make your chance at getting one low. As begging is simply annoying and doesn't show a level of maturity that we look for on this wiki. Once you fill out this form and sign it with four ~~~~'s, our head admin will review your request. To make it run easier, make sure you character has some depth to their personality, and make sure their name complies to our naming conventions. A link to this page is just above.
Once your character is accepted, you can make their page! Head over to the Page Format to see how your page should look. It's easier to just copy and paste the guide's content to your new page and adjust it's information to suit your character.
Also, if there is already a cat with the same name as yours, add the abbreviation for the group at the end of the page name. For example, there are two cats named Stormclaw. The second one is in ShadeClan. At the end of the page name would be (SC), since that's the Clan the cat is in. If there's already a Stormclaw (SC), add (SC II) and so on at the end.
The Basics & Rules
As this is a roleplay wiki, it's always good to know the general basics of roleplay. Being the rules and the basics.
If you want to do something with another roleplayer's character, like kill them or make them be mates with your character, you must have the person's permission.
When it comes to birth scenes, they do not have to be shown unless it's important.
When it comes to things like that and mating, it's best to do a 'fade to black' transition. It means the same thing and makes it less weird or gross.
Don't bother people too much - asking them too many questions will make them feel irritated and frankly annoyed. It's understandable if you're new, though, since you'll have to learn the ropes.
Play along with the plotlines - it'll make things go smoothly. Many users have their own sub-plots within the Clan's major plot, so be sure to get in on those if you'd like. Make sure to ask though!
If you need any help to the plots, some plots can be see in the Forum or see Mink for more.
Be mindful of others squicks, or discomforts. If you're roleplaying something like heavy gore, put it under a drop-down box so that it's not easily seen when they're viewing it.
Don't mess with the Clan descriptions, history, lore, etc. at all. Only admins can.
If you are to add something to your character, like a mental disorder, a disability, or the like, research is highly suggested. We don't want to offend anybody in any shape or form, and if you can't handle even a little bit, perhaps it's best you don't add it at all.
How to Roleplay
For your first post, you don't have to have much to it. Just have your character enter camp, or wake up. Maybe have them interact with someone else's cat to start up an interaction. Don't have your character kill, or mate with anyone else's characters. You should always have permission from people before you try anything dramatic like that. It just makes the roleplay nicer to be a part of. Try to use good grammar when roleplaying, as it makes your posts much easier to read. This wiki is also semi-literate at the least - so good grammar and spelling is highly advised. Only roleplay your own characters, unless you have someone's permission to roleplay theirs. Once you're done typing up your post, sign it with four ~~~~, so we can know who posted it. Then, you're done!
