Roleplay / Warrior Cats RPG

Warrior Cats RPG (exactly what it says in the title) is a role-playing game about Warrior Cats, the book series based around a feral cat society. The game is moderately long running for a play by post roleplaying game at over 5 years of age. It includes a section for miscellaneous roleplay, but the majority of the site is devoted to Warriors. Noted for its long plotline and character history, and a family tree of thousands of cats. The demographic, while varied, tends to be younger than most forums due to the demographic of the Warriors series itself.

WARNING: This page may be extremely outdated.Needs a Better Description


WCRPG contains examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: In a game where there are almost no naming rules, this is to be expected.
  • Alternate Continuity: The books never happened, and barely resemble where the RP is now.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wild Life: Averted; there's an entire subforum dedicated to cat genetics, and players are heavily encouraged to give their characters coats that would make sense. Impossible color combinations are tolerated to a certain extent (though may get the geneticists very annoyed at you if given in the genetics board), but straight-up impossible colours like green or purple are only recently permitted.
    • Although, you know, there's the free roleplaying board...
    • Can now be played straight with the addition of "Custom Pelt" as a buyable (albeit expensive) shop item.
  • Anyone Can Die
  • Ax-Crazy: Most characters from The Exiles fall into this trope.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: Cloudypeak. Painfulmemory has also been showing shades of this-sure, she's a disgraced former medicine cat with a serious addiction to many different types of illicit herbs, but if it weren't for her, Pulse would be dead by now.
  • Back from the Dead: This has happened to several major characters (and a lot of less major ones), through reincarnation or possession.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Extremely averted with Capone. She used to look like this...and now she looks like this!
  • Better to Die Than Be Killed: Nightstar, after hearing that some cats in ThunderClan wanted to overthrow him, assumed that it meant he was going to die. Having been borderline suicidal for moons prior, rather than come out and try to reason with them (or exile them, if it came to it), he ran off with plans to drown himself in the river. It didn't work: the very cats discussing his death were the ones who found and stopped him.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Some of the anti-Clans have strange moral codes.
  • Cats Have Nine Lives: Played straight with the spirit absorption powers, but not all cats have nine lives.
    • The spirit absorption power allows characters with it to obtain up to nine lives by killing others and consuming their souls; however, any playable species can have this power, not just cats.
  • Death by Childbirth: Happens quite often.
  • Enemy Mine: In the weeks before the meteor strike, many of the Clans and anti-Clans allied under the Oath of Mutual Protection to prepare for and deal with the disaster. This resulted in situations such as WindClan sheltering with BloodClan, who had burned WindClan's territory to the ground a few months before.
  • Erudite Stoner: Brody is this once in a while, particularly when his grandson Elixor, the wayward leader of a failing tribe, came to him for advice in desperation.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The Exiles is known for how evil they are, but it's against the clan rules to rape / hurt / kill anyone else in The Exiles.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: As you're allowed to have any level of violence whatsoever, a lot of murders are in thi fashion.
  • Fantastic Racism: The Nox are a group of canids (and hyenas) who believe non-canid/hyena species to be lower life forms.
  • Flat Character: Many of the characters who are not advanced. Rarely can you find a character that is not advanced and is also not a flat character.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Every character starts out small but can get more well known with times. Many Anti-clan leaders turn out to be this trope.
  • God Modding: Mostly averted; the game is tightly policed for these types of infractions, though a few may slip through in the miscellaneous roleplay areas.
  • G-Rated Drug: Catnip is used as a drug, but actual drugs are referenced and used from time to time.
    • Oh, and that progressed into her joining a rapist band and snatching away kits from mothers as soon as they were weaned.

  • Jerkass: Many of the characters who live in anti-clans are this.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Since new characters are created every day, it's impossible to count them.
  • Myth Arc: By now the game spans over ten generations of characters.
    • Webcomic Time: This varies and does not always apply, but can happen.
  • Orphaned Series: Averted. The GM and staff are quite present and active.
  • Overly Long Name: Tribe cats, as in the books. Also, some Clan warriors end up with overly long warrior names, like "Projectionanimus" or "Endlesspossibility" to name a few.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: BloodClan has a law prohibiting rape of enemies...because it increases the enemies' numbers if the victims have kits.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Persistent OOC drama among roleplayers in the Elite board led the staff to delete the board. In-game, this was treated as the Elite being destroyed by some unspecified catastrophe, with characters either being assumed dead or dispersing to other Clans.
  • Shapeshifting: A power that can be bought in the shop; can be used to various effects, but most commonly for battle.
  • The Caligula: Capone became this in late spring 2011, after slowly drifting in that direction throughout her rule.
    • Photostar appeared to become this in spring 2014, but turned out to have actually been possessed by a demon.
  • The Casanova: Pompeii
  • The Eeyore: Onyxfeather. And the considerably more stoical Reasonpaw, who isn't so much overtly wangsty as he is apparently incapable of feeling joy.
  • Tangled Family Tree: The...thing that is the Bonestar-Sabrestar family tree. Cats sharing souls is just the beginning.
    • Also, check out this attempt at making a full tree of cats in game. And it's not even near being finished!
  • Trauma Conga Line: Littlekit, in a particular brutal instance of Break the Cutie. Her mother died in childbirth, leaving she and her sister to live as orphans with no one willing to raise them, was kidnapped by BloodClan when she was only three moons old, had her only friends turn against each other in a vicious love triangle, her front leg was bitten off by a dog, leaving her permanently invalid, she was raped and ultimately was abandoned by everyone she knew, unable to properly take care of her kits alone and forced to watch them, one by one, die of disease, predation, and starvation... Nearly every moment when it looked as if her luck was beginning to change, she somehow suffered a trauma more brutal than the last. you can probably guess how this ended.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Desolatestar, though she may have been rather ...unhinged to begin with, and Nightstar, who started out as your typical tsundere but spiralled into full on manic-depressive insanity after becoming leader.
  • Villainous Incest: And how. Storm, Corgor, Rollout, and others have all tried their hand {or paw} at this to varying degrees.
  • Villain Team-Up: Averted with The Exiles. They refuse to ally with any clan.
