Forest Of Secrets

 

 
 
 
 
 Yes, life as a Clan cat isn’t easy. But we are free.

 

 In this forest, a new chapter begins. A new breath, a new secret. Enter the world of Warriors through the eyes of a Clan Cat. Fight with tooth and claw to defend your clan, while risking limb and life. Hunt with the blood of a warrior pulsating though you. Because you were born to be the protector, with nothing but a fierce ambition and courage to guide you. With a fire for every experience and an obsession for freedom that inspires you to continue on through your harsh life as a warrior. Or, some prefer the gentle ways of a medicine Cat. Saving the lives of the sick and weak, wandering up the path of stars and selflessness. You must be stronger than any warrior if you choose this path, for it'll bring you much heartbreak. Will you let StarClan guide you through this Forest Of Secrets?

 

 

  

Forest Of Secrets is a community of people from all walks of life. Our multi-ethnic community has gained worldwide recognition for our passion to help others and our loyalty to each other and our cause. The first FOS website was founded in 2007 and since then has played a prominent part in the Webs Roleplay community, and the education that could come from it. Our goal is to encourage a spirit of youth in everyone, through our love for the Warriors franchise. Our efforts have initially focused on the expansion on communication, teamwork, and grammar. We will continue these efforts and expand to reach more fans of the franchise in need of a true Warrior home.

 
 

The name "Assassin" is often said to derive from the Arabic Hashishin or "users of hashish",[2] thought to have been originally derogatory and used by their adversaries during the Middle Ages. In actuality, the word is a misnomer for the Nizari Ismailis applied abusively to them by the Mustali Ismailis during the fall of the decaying Ismaili Fatimid Empire when the two streams separated from each other. In 1122 the Mustalian dynasty Fatimid caliph al-Amir referred to the Nizaris as the hashishiyya "without any explanation" and "without actually accusing them of using hashish, a product of hemp".[3]

The term hashishiyya or hashishi as used by Muslim sources is used metaphorically in its abusive sense (i.e. "irreligious social outcasts", "low-class rabble", etc.), while "the literal interpretation of this term in referring to the Nizaris (as hashish consuming intoxicated assassins) is rooted in the fantasies of medieval Westerners and their imaginative ignorance of Islam and the Ismailis."[4]

Mentions of Assassins were preserved within European sources such as the writings of Marco Polo, where they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures.
