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.

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 from the Dead: This has happened to several major characters (and a lot of less major ones), through reincarnation or possession.
  • 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.
  • 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 this fashion, usually scarring the characters who witness these deaths.
  • Fantastic Racism: The Nox are a group of canids (and hyenas) who believe non-canid/hyena species to be lower life forms.
  • Flat Character: Played straight with most characters, though averted with the players who actually have self awareness.
  • 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.
  • G-Rated Drug: Catnip is used as a drug, but actual drugs are referenced and used from time to time.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tangled Family Tree: Common, with all the incest and rape and litter machines running rampant.
  • Trauma Conga Line: A favorite trope to be used on this site.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Many of the anti-clan leaders slowly spiral into this predictable trope.
  • 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.
