Skip to end for brief summary
A proud silver she-cat stood a top a huge tree trunk that belonged to a once huge tree. On both sides of her, standing two mouse lengths away were two other great leaders. The full moon shined directly above the many cats that gathered in the large clearing. The silver she-cat shook her pelt, which shimmered in the moon light, before she spoke loudly to get all the cats attention " The gathering will began now." the she-cat waits for a moment to make sure everycat is listening before she continues "As you all know there is a new threat to the clans. A group of cats that call themselves a tribe has appeared from the shadows and is attacking the clans in small bursts. We leaders fear for our warriors lives and the declining prey. All clans are to be on the lookout and warriors must not confront the enemy alone for fear of losing your life. Now more than ever the clans need to work together to defeat this threat and must put away their petty rivalries for the time being until we vanquish is threat." The she-cat nodded to the other leaders once she was finished and she sat down and listened to the mumbling concerns of the cats below.
After the gathering a cat slithered from their hiding spot and dash stealthily back to their leader and reported what they had heard at the gathering. Their leader nodded and called a meeting of their own "Cats of the Tribe of Burning Fire, the clan scum are making plans against us so we must now make plans against them, and I have a perfect one" The leader hissed loudly to their tribe before turning around and slipping off into their den to construct a plan.
The Tribe of Burning Fire is invading the clans and are ruthless and bad.
But in reality they come from a harsh mountain that has run out of food and is covered with predators and they are only trying to survive. The do kill cats and invade others because they do not know of the warrior code because they do not live by it. They have different traditions that clash violently with the clans but...
