ThunderClan of the books is a Clan devoted to peace and respect, with no fear of challenging the code to do as they please. They take in kittypets without regard for tradition and blood purity while claiming it is StarClan’s will. CoSC’s ThunderClan is rather different.

While they do tend to be cats who are thinkers, they do so while upholding to the words of the code that they have been taught since they were very young. They are experts at both ambush hunting and fighting, knowing the code does not call for a face to face fight but instead that the borders be kept protected.

 

Territory

The majority of ThunderClan’s territory is covered in forests, though there are a few notable exceptions: First off is the open, stone filled clearing called snakerocks. Near to that, by the road is the East Clearing. By the tiny stream that branches off the Sidestream is the stream clearing. The single largest open space surrounds the Owltree, on the approach towards Fourtrees. Also notable is the clearing near sunningrocks, where ThunderClan Territory juts into RiverClan’s territory.

Prey

The forests run rich with mice, voles, squirrel and birds. Small fish run in the Sidestream, and most ThunderClan cats know the rudiments of fishing. The bits of open land in the territory play host to rabbits, and the occasional water vole can be found at Sunningrocks.

Territory and Maps

ThunderClan Camp

Highrock

A large outcropping of stone in the center of the camp. Two small caves within the stone form leader’s and medicine cat’s dens. Over the top of the Leader’s Den is a smooth, flat area where the Leader traditionally stands to call together the Clan for a meeting.

Leader’s Den

A small cave in the Highrock, sheltered by the growth of vines and other vegetation. This provides a private place for the leader that stays relatively cool in greenleaf, and nicely warm in leaf-bare.

Medicine Cat’s Den

A small cave in the Highrock that lies opposite of the leader’s den. The entrance is more open than the leader’s den, with a few small bushes near the entrance that provide good cover for ailing cats who must stay near the den. Within are two different chambers that provide a place for the medicine cat (and it’s apprentice) to sleep in addition to storage space for Herbs.

Warrior’s Den

Formed with walls of sticks, brambles and other such vegetation, the den is not as secure as the leader’s and medicine cat’s den but still provides excellent protection for the cats that call it home. The entrance looks out on the fresh-kill pile and elder’s den, and the floor is of sand covered in soft moss.

Apprentice’s Den

Much like the warrior’s den, though on a smaller scale, the apprentice’s den is almost identical. The stick and bramble walls and ceiling provide cover and protection from the elements for creatures that sleep within on the sand and moss floor.

Nursery

Built away from the main wall of the camp, the walls of the nursery have been built to be more solid and much fuller than the primary outer wall and the walls of the warrior and apprentice dens. Here the sandy floor is covered in moss, but the nests in that moss are lined with warm fur and feathers from the kills made by apprentices and warriors. The queens of the Clan reside here along with their young kits.

Elder’s Den

A large fallen tree that’s gone hollow with age, the elder’s den is possessed of little construction by cats’ paws. Instead, nature has provided an almost perfect place for the oldest cats in the Clan to live. It’s thickly lined with mosses, fur and feathers so that it’s occupants will be less likely to take a chill.

Fresh-kill pile

A small pile of slain prey items that lay in a small depression in the largest open area of the camp. Because of its placement, a returning hunter must parade past the apprentices’, warriors’ and elders’ dens to deposit their kills.

Geography: The point where ThunderClan Territory meets both RiverClan and WindClan.

Description: Nothing sets this small chunk of territory apart save for the multitude of clan-scents that mark the ground near the Rockpath and on the nearby bushes. WindClan, RiverClan, and ThunderClan scents mingle heavily, with faint traces of ShadowClan (the only evidence of the dares so popular amongst the Clan’s apprentices).

Description: A massive maple tree that stands on a stretch of open grass. A hole in the trunk is home to a large tawny owl that can be a danger to kits and small apprentices.

Stream Clearing

Geography: A small, short-lived stream that splits from the river near the sidestream and cuts into a ThunderClan territory.

Description: While not particularly long, many small fish congregate in this shade section of shallow stream that has split off the main river. The clearing around the stream is rich with grass and moss in the summer, but it is one of the first sections of the river to freeze in winter.

Sidestream

Geography: A small stream that splits from the river shortly after the bridge and flows through ThunderClan territory into ShadowClan.

Description: A thin stream that flows slowly towards ShadowClan territory. During spring and fall it runs rich with smaller fish that use the shallower water to hide from larger fish.

Sunningrocks

Geography: A place on the East Bank between the Upper and Lower Portions.

Description: A flat, rocky area tucked into a bend in the river where it runs deeply. Large stones litter the ground and create wonderful places for a cat to sun itself in addition to a multitude of hide-y-holes for mice and voles.

Geography: A large tree that stands in a clearing above Eastforest between ThunderClan camp and Snakerocks.

Description: A tree of an impressive size drowns out all other growth and stands in a clearing created by it’s own majesty. The huge sycamore stands overlooking Snakerocks and providing a place for the creatures to escape the summer heat.
