Forgotten Purrs
The time of ThunderClan, WindClan, RiverClan, ShadowClan and even the Tribe of the Rushing Water have long passed. The old heroes are just legends now, and the Ancient Clans, tales of LionClan, TigerClan and LeopardClan are scarcely remembered. Tales of Clans and Tribes spread from forest to forest, Twolegplace to Twolegplace, and although the rumors quickly spread, the warrior code, the purpose of Tribes and Clans remained the same. Thus, the first leaders came together: Magpiestar, Sunstar, Hollowstar and Mothstar. Although their beliefs and loyalties were divided, they each were strong and proud and knew their destinies: to rule the forest together, to respect one another, and to sacrifice everything for their friends. Now, those leaders, too, have passed, and it's your time to step up an aid in the rebirth of the forest.

PostSubject: List of Medicines and Ailments   Mon Oct 15, 2012 4:48 pm

These are the herbs used to cure and wounds or ailments in the Clans, as well as the known ailments and injuries.
If you are looking for a cure to a certain illness, press Control + F (Command + F on a Mac) on your computer keyboard to search for a keyword. For example, if I were looking for a cure to venom, I would search "poison," and medicines used to fight poison would be highlighted.
