FALLING | torw stoneteller

Check out this announcement about new leadership limits in Agrelos
  • He had decided to take the walk all the way down to RiverClan alone after he had spoken briefly to Comet and Bunny, the other two current stoneteller's before leaving. After DarkClan, WindClan, and ShadowClan, even though it had been Bunny who had handled that patrol, he felt fairly confident in himself that he'd be able to handle this one. If the Tribe was going to attend next moons gathering Bumble wanted to know or get an idea of the cats he was going to have to be surrounded by, obviously he wasn't worried none about DarkClan and SkyClan, but the tribe hadn't interacted with many of the clans for moons. He never did understand why previous stoneteller's had never seem to interact with any of them besides their two allies, but then again what did he know? Maybe things were different back then and they had their reasons.


    As he approached the border there was a relieved glimmer in his eye, finally he had made it. His paws ached due to the walk, it was probably the furthest he had ever gone before. It almost made him begin to debate maybe while he was around he should visit with SkyClan...? He'd think about it. For now the main goal was to speak with the RiverClan leader, who he had failed to ever hear about. But could you blame him? He grew up hearing whispers about Minnowstar, Pitchstar, Driftingstar, SkyClan and DarkClan leaders... By the stars he was hoping the tribe's relationship with the clans would begin to improve.


    So he sits down patiently at the border, which was still something he didn't understand. In the tribe borders weren't much of a big deal, they rarely marked theirs by the DarkClan border if at all and if someone ended up crossing the first thing you asked them if they needed any help or if they happened to be lost. The clans were taught to challenge trespassers immediately. Strange yet interesting, they probably got more loners and rogues traveling on their land then the tribe did though so perhaps it was smarter on their part. Anyways shaking the thoughts out of his head, he waits patiently for a RiverClan feline to come across him. And hopefully they didn't give him strange looks when he revealed he was one of the tribe's new stonetellers.

  • ✦ ✧ ✦ The young lilac calico had been walking through the territory, when she caught wind of an unfamiliar scent. She followed the scent to the border, where she found a young, brown tom waiting there. Heronswoop did not recognise the scent as one of the clans, at least those she knew of. But the smell was not the same as a BloodClan cat, or a rogue from the city. If she had to guess on a possible clan, she would have said DarkClan, but would not commit to that thought, due to her little interactions with the clan. She slowly stepped forward, bowing her head in greeting. "Hello," she mewed warmly, coming to stop before him. She would incline her head to one side before continuing. "Who are you and what business do you have here?" She asked politely.

  • "Hey." Bumble greets as he begins to rise onto his paws as the RiverClan feline approaches him. Overall he was just relieved it hadn't taken too long for someone to end up spotting him. Though every time the tribe has traveled to the borders of the clans, at least any besides Dark and Sky, they all seemed to fail to realize they were from the tribe. The clans didn't even know the tribe's scent. It was sad on the tribes part, but he was hoping to fix that or at least begin to with RiverClan today. "I am Bumble of Bee, but please just call me Bumble. Current has... well been no where to be seen for awhile." If they even know who that is. "And I am one of the cats who stepped up in his place as stoneteller. I'm here to speak to your leader, if thats possible." He explains with a small flick of his ear.

  • //oop just gonna jump in here


    Swanfeather had been following tiredly behind Heronswoop on the border patrol, eager to get it over with so he could head back to camp. The nonstop schedule of fetching water and land hunting had left him exhausted as the lack of sleep started piling up. Now that the Clan's situation was a little more stable he couldn't get the thought of a nap out of his mind.


    He didn't even have the energy to be surprised when they had met an unfamiliar cat on the border, his scent completely foreign to the dark-furred warrior. Swanfeather guessed he was from one of the farther off Clans. Bumble of Bee? He almost snorted with laughter at the ridiculous name, but he held it in for politeness' sake. Instead he gave a formal dip of his head in greeting to the other tom.


    "We can take you to our leader," he said, glancing at Heronswoop to see what she thought. "Do you believe your clanmate Current might be somewhere around here?"

  • ✦ ✧ ✦ Heronswoop listened quietly as he introduced himself. Though somewhat thrown by his odd name, she did her best to hold back a bubble of laughter, much like her clanmate, Swanfeather. If the unusual name wasn't enough to convince her, then the mention of a 'stoneteller' certainly would. This was a tribe cat. Heronswoop knew little of the tribe, beyond a few small stories and rumours she had heard growing up. Though she could remember a RiverClan cat known as Goosetuft having travelled to the tribe some moons back. She wondered if the old tom had ever made it there.


    Beside her, Swanfeather suggested that they could take him to their leader instead, to which the lilac calico nodded her head in agreement. At his following question, she was quick to interrupt before the brown tom had a chance to respond. "Actually he's not from a clan," Heronswoop informed her companion politely. Her amber gaze then shifted to the younger tom. "He's from the tribe. Though I cannot recall it's full name."

  • As another tom approached Bumble blinked, anxiety beginning to weigh down heavily in his chest. Maybe he should've brought another cat with him? Maybe he wasn't ready to handle this yet? He tries to push the doubts into the back of his mind and he forces a small smile. "Thank you." He meows to the two of them with a dip of his head. Oh, Current? Be somewhere around here? As great as that would be Bumble really... wasn't planning on finding Current. Ever. Hell they hadn't even looked for the tom in awhile, he had pretty much vanished shortly after Sky died, as mean as it may sound expecting to find Current was foolish. "Sadly, no. Current has been missing for around four moons now." He says rather bluntly, it was a little hard for Bumble to really... grieve the tom. He had been a child when Current disappeared and he could barely remember what having a stoneteller, besides himself, felt like. His gaze would then shift over to the she-cat and he'd give a small nod. "I'm just here to speak to your leader about where our groups are standing right now." He wanted to know where they stood alliance wise, allies... neutrals... uhh he hoped not enemies? He just wanted to make sure something was established so he knew for sure.


    "Yes. The Tribe of Rushing Water. We live in the mountains by DarkClan." He explains as he shuffles his paws against the ground anxiously. "We're known for being rather quiet and reserved to ourselves though." Which he hoped didn't come off as him trying to say the tribe thought they were better then the clan cats... But it explained why most cats had barely even heard of them.

  • "Oh, I see," Swanfeather stuttered, a little embarrassed that he hadn't realized the cat before them was from the Tribe. He knew next to nothing about their group, so he assumed that they and RiverClan were at least on neutral footing. Anyways, Bumble's polite diplomacy was a welcome change from the spitting resentment between his Clan and BloodClan, so he was quick to welcome the new cat. "Well then, we better go see Nightstar," he said, motioning with a flick of his tail in the direction of the camp.


    As he and Heronswoop guided Bumble through the territory, Swanfeather couldn't repress his curiosity. "Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I don't really know anything about the Tribe," he said, turning his head to Bumble. "Is a stoneteller like... a deputy?" His voice was a little uncertain, and he hoped the question wouldn't offend the other cat.

  • ✦ ✧ ✦ Swanfeather seemed a little embarrassed that he didn't recognise that the younger tom was from the tribe, but Heronswoop would not hold it against him, and judging by what they had seen of the young tom's personality she doubted he would too. As he reiterated his reasoning for being there, Heronswoop was quick to fall in behind Swanfeather and Bumble. At his mention of wanting to find out where things stood between RiverClan and the Tribe, Heronswoop herself wondered the same question.


    For the most part RiverClan seemed to be allied or on neutral terms with most clans, save for BloodClan of course, but she could not recall what their standing was with the Tribe. She could not even recall a time when the Tribe was ever mentioned in detail.


    Following Swanfeather's question, she was quick to chime in with one of her own. "Is life very different you in the Tribe? Do you have a medicine cat like we do?" She asked.

  • //late response sorry <3<3


    With a thankful dip of his head Bumble would begin to follow the two RiverClan cats, the two seemed friendly enough though he couldn't help but feel a bit anxious. How many eyes would be on him once he arrived? What was their leader like? Thankfully the two strangers gave him a few more questions to answer, and honestly he was rather thankful he had something to distract his thoughts with. "There's no such thing as a dumb question." He would murmur, he had heard one of the cave-guards say that to a to-be awhile ago and it kind of stuck with him sense. A deputy? The tribe didn't exactly have a deputy, the closest that they got to one was a Stoneteller to-be. "No. A Stoneteller is a leader of the tribe. However Stoneteller's eventually take on to-bes assigned to them by the Tribe of Endless Hunting, and then they are trained to take over to clan in their spot once they are gone." He wouldn't be too shocked if the last bit was confusing, with the mention of the Tribe of Endless Hunting and what not... He then directed his gaze onto Heronswoop.


    "Yeah... everything is a bit different from the tribe compared to the clans. For example to answer your question, the Stoneteller's are the medicine cats of the tribe. We take on both healing and leading, though with there being three of us at the moment... we have specializations. One of us handles relations, I'm sure you can guess who that is. One of us handles healing, and another handles spiritual stuff. Really just to make it easier and all." He attempts to explain. "Though the specializations doesn't stop us from doing certain things... Like a cat who handles relations can very well help patch up an injured cat or learn about herbs. If that makes sense?"


    Sometimes the tribe confused him sometimes.

  • Swanfeather took in Bumble's words with interest. Although he knew that groups other than the Clans had their own way of running things, he had never actually heard any of their ways of living described in detail. It all sounded so fascinating, and the thought of adventure always tugged at his paws to find new cats and live new experiences. Maybe one day, when he was older and RiverClan was doing well, he would visit the Tribe in their far-off mountains.


    For now though, he responded to the Tribe cat with quiet expressions of acknowledgement, soft "hmm"s and "oh"s filling the gaps between Bumble's sentences. As he and Heronswoop reached the camp, he was about to call out Nightstar's name before realizing that she was too sick to attend to her duties. The deputy, a cat Swanfeather hadn't spoken much with, was now taking over her responsibilities.


    "Twistedtail?" He called into the clearing. "The stoneteller of the Tribe of Rushing Water is here to see you."

  • TWISTEDTAIL::


    Nightstar stepping down was so sudden and came as quite the shock for the RiverClan deputy. She now had to gain her nine lives and choose a deputy of her own and--


    The somewhat on-edge deputy jumped slightly as her name was called, head whipping around to see a small group of cats had approached her, and with them one that she could not recognize the scent of. But as Swanfeather explained, that worry quickly dissipated as she padded over and nodded her head in greeting to the tribe cat. "I apologize - I'm a bit frantic today, all things considered. You're.. the stoneteller, he said? I'm sorry, I'm not so familiar with the tribe's traditions and hierarchy. As you may be able to guess, I'm Twistedtail. I'm the deputy- er.. well, soon-to-be-leader at this point, of RiverClan, but I'm sure you don't need me chewing your ear about the intricacies of clan life."

  • ✦ ✧ ✦ Heronswoop listened quietly as Bumble answered their questions about life in the tribe. Although she knew a little of the clan, she had never known how reliable the information was, so she was pleased to have knowledge given to her, from a cat who originated from the mysterious group.


    As the three of them returned to camp, Heronswoop, like Swanfeather, almost found herself calling out for Nightstar. As her lips began to part, she quickly caught herself and held her tongue, instead letting Swanfeather call out for Twistedtail. Heronswoop would simply remain quiet as Twistedtail approached. Swanfeather had already explained Bumble's reason for being here, so she saw no point in repeating that point. In fact, she only stayed in case Bumble or Twistedtail would need her to clarify anything.

  • //I just want to note I had talked to Night about the possibility of an alliance, but now that Twisted has stepped up feel free to decline them or request they remain neutral! c: also sorry rushed post sdbhvjmdf


    Bumble would wait patiently for the leader, which he assumed was newly appointed based on not having a star suffix, to approach. A small smile would tug at his lips upon the leaders approach and he'd dip his head respectfully, "Twistedtail, its a pleasure to meet you. I am Bumble of Bee, one of the Stoneteller's of the Tribe of Rushing Water as you already know." He greets and introduces himself, before deciding to get straight into business. He had came here to discuss them possibly... being allies. He wanted to interact and be involved with the clans a bit more, the tribe has never had much of a relationship with most of them from his understanding. Most of the clans might find it pointless to be allies with a group so far away and so unheard of, but Bumble was working on that. He hoped by the time he was done as Stoneteller the clans would know the difference between a Stoneteller and a cave-guard.


    And he hoped attending the gathering next moon as if they were a clan would help that.


    "I know that our groups have rarely interacted in the past, but I am wanting to change that. Assuming you don't want to hear me go on and on, I'll cut to the chase. I was wondering if RiverClan would possibly be interested in being allies with the Tribe? Even if its just a trial alliance before we come to a final decision? Even if not allies, all I am seeking is a positive relationship with RiverClan just as long as its not enemies." He tells the older she-cat with a small flick of his tail. Er... was that really convincing? Was it even wise to offer an alliance to a group of cats who didn't know anything about the tribe? Was it even smart on their end to accept? He didn't know, Bumble knew he wouldn't let RiverClan down if they decided to have an alliance with the Tribe, but RiverClan didn't know that.


    No matter the outcome he could at least say he tried.

  • the scent of strangers would draw the apprentice out of her den where she had intentions of staying for the day. curious, tired eyes met the young cat talking to twistedtail. who was this apprentice? were they joining? as she got closer, she began to realize how strange the scent really was. this cat was surely not from the clans. allies? what clan in their right mind would send an apprentice to negotiate with leaders?

    her gaze flickered to both warriors that seemed to have escorted him to camp. it was clear that she expected answers, but she would not interrupt the two.

    The tabby only blinked as this stoneteller explained that he seeked an alliance between their two clans. Beyond the fact that the cat who was offering was so incredibly young, the Tribe was so far away from RiverClan, with two clans sitting between them. Hell, even BloodClan was closer than they were, but she wasn't in such a hurry to extend her paw in friendship to the city rogues just yet. The Tribe, however, had a clean slate to work on - besides, they could always use more allies.

    "I see no reason to call the Tribe our enemies. I can't recall a time you've ever come to harm us, but I won't push RiverClan into a true alliance right away with another group of cats we barely know about. However, I'm willing to try this.. trial alliance."

    There was no doubt that Twistedtail saw Finchpaw's confusion and she shared in it, though she would wait to see where this goes before making any final decision.
