2: Do not hunt or trespass on another Clan's territory.
3: Elders, queens, and kits must be fed before apprentices and warriors.
4: Unless they have permission, apprentices may not eat until they have hunted to feed the elders. If any warrior or apprentice is sick or injured, they may eat while the elders, queens, and kits are eating.

Book 1..so far :)
- Bramblepath and Brightshadow are two of Arti's main characters in the New Generation Series.
- Rainsplash987's name gave me inspiration for Rainheart's name.
- Rainheart may be the POV but Bramblepath, Brightshadow, Reedwhisker, and Fishleap may be more important....
- There is another important character but she has yet t be named...

Explanations for FAQ's
Where is ShadowClan??: ShadowClan's territory is now used as the HOA because after the battle with the Dark Forest, ShadowClan decided that StarClan had not meant for the lake to be their new home because none of StarClan came to help ShadowClan in the fight even though every other clan had StarClan fighters so ShadowClan left and headed for the mountains. Some ShadowClan cats decided to stay with the clans and dispersed themselves to the other clans.
What is the HOA?: The HOA is where all cats can hang out and see their mates from other clans as well as their kits. Having mates is not forbidden but makes life harder because some cats hate that is is allowed and can and will kill to prove it.
Add other questions here in bold for an explanation from me!
