If you have read these rules, put your favorite Pokemon in the "extra" part of your form :)
16. Failure to follow the rules may lead to a kick or ban, or other consequences.

Leadership Ceremony
When a leader dies, a deputy is tasked to go out into the wild of the above-ground territory alone for at least one night (but it can be more if the deputy doesn't earn their lives on the first attempt). During this ceremony, they are tasked with looking deep inside themselves and judging if they are worthy enough to be a leader, and in turn the spirits will look down upon the deputy and judge whether the deputy is ready or not. Their ceremony is ended by one of two things, either the deputy sees a live rabbit during their time out at night, or they see a dead rabbit. A live rabbit is indicative of a blessing from the spirits, and the deputy is instructed to sleep immediately to receive their 9 lives. However, if the leader sees a dead rabbit, they are to be banished from the clan and forced to wander as a loner. This is a bad omen, and the rest of the clan is to choose another cat to be leader instead of the banished.

Afterlives
The Good Afterlife
When a cat dies, once the spirits above have judged the cat and chosen them to go to the good afterlife, their spirits shall take a journey up to the moon. All spirits live on the moon, where they are graced with endless hunting and all the worldly pleasures they had in life. It is said that the glow of the moon is caused by the many spirits that illuminate it's surface.
The Rabbit's Cycle
When a cat that isn't good enough to go straight to the moon dies, they are judged by the spirits and chosen to go through a sort-of "cycle" of rebirth. The cat gets reincarnated as a rabbit, in which they will have slight memories of their past life. They will be judged throughout their life as a rabbit, and once they die, these judgements will either decide if they go to the good place or the bad place.
Bad Afterlife
If they do not prove themselves in the Rabbit's Cycle, the cat is forced to be reborn as an earthworm. As their time as an earthworm, they are forced to break down and consume the cats they hurt the worst in life before their soul can be put to rest. Once they do this, their soul is wiped away and all essence of them is erased, thus giving them no second chance in another cycle.

BurrowClan Customs
Burial
When a cat dies, the Shaman and the cat's family usually go out to a secluded place in the territory, dig a hole, and bury their loved one. This is so that they are able to go up to the moon and their bodies can be broken down and become the grass rabbits eat. It is said that if a cat isn't properly buried, they are forced to walk the earth until their body can be put to rest.
Day of Rest
Whenever a new moon occurs, the cats of the clan partake in the "Day of Rest". They rest because they believe that when the moon is in it's new moon phase their ancestors and the spirits that live on the moon are resting, so the cats of the clan should as well.
Shaman Communication
When a Shaman wishes to talk to their ancestors, it is customary for the cat to walk out into an open field where the moon shines brightly onto them and fall asleep. Only during that ritual will the cat be blessed to talk to the spirits.

Shaman Hunting
After the Highest Ranking Shaman has passed away, the current Trainee is moved up to a Head Shaman, where they await their own Trainee. The Shamans wait until the first rainfall after their clan-mates death, and that morning, organize each Apprentice at the camp entrance. They are given until nightfall to find a rabbit as white as snow. They must stalk it, but not dare to harm it. Unbeknownst to the Apprentices, the current Shamans already know the location of the rabbit, and are simply waiting for someone to discover them. The Apprentice must be able to be aware of the rabbits presence, but not have the rabbit be frightened by them. If it is, they have failed. The special one who is able to give the rabbit a sense of peace is clearly the next Shaman Trainee, who is worthy of obtaining the spiritual training.

Other Beliefs
Worship
The main things the cats worship is Nighttime, The Moon, The Earth/Ground, and Rabbits, Meaning that all of these things are sacred and shouldn't be slandered. Rabbits under no circumstances will be harmed in any way, unless the cat is looking to be exiled or killed.
Reason for Worship
Rabbits - Due to the cat's afterlife, it is not uncommon for a family member/friend to be a rabbit. This means that cats will not harm the rabbits in fear of killing their loved one and interfering with their Cycle, and they will not due it in fear of being driven away or killed as punishment for it. Rabbits are also guiding spirits for the cats, ones often being sent during important ceremonies and being closely tied with the afterlife
The Moon - The moon is where good cats go when they die, being the final resting ground for spirits of loved ones and clanmates. The cats worship the moon because it is where the spirits that guide their lives live, and where all cats aspire to go when they die.
Nighttime - Nighttime is when the moon is visible, and thus is a special time for the cats who worship it. It is also when the leader ceremony is conducted, so that the spirits who live on the moon can watch over the aspiring leader.
The Earth - The ground is where the cats live, and the earth in which they tunnel and live in is held in high regards as it has so gratefully supported the cats and kept them protected.

N/A

BurrowClan cats make their camp underground in dozens of burrows, much like how a rabbit would. Their territory mainly consists of fields.
The Meadow

thumb

A meadow filled with tall grasses and wildflowers, where prey like mice, shrews, voles, and small birds can be found. Opening to tunnels can be found here and are the entrances to the underground tunneling system.
Prey: Mice, Shrews, Voles, Small birds
Dangers: Hawks, Foxes, Snakes, Deer

The Underground
thumb

A winding, long series of tunnels under various territory locations. Some of these open up into caves, where prey like bats and sometimes fish can be found. This is usually accessed through the holes in the meadow, but other entrances are present.
Prey: Cave fish, Bats, Occasional Mice
Dangers: Bats, Getting lost, Cave-ins

The Abandoned Barn
thumb

A large hay-filled barn overgrown with ivy and falling apart at some places. Plump mice and rats can be found here, but that's usually it. Sometimes sheep can be found grazing here, but they usually leave the cats alone. There are patches of herbs (like catmint) growing around the barn.
Prey: Mice, Rats
Dangers: Debris, Sheep

The Waterfall
thumb

A large stream cuts through the meadow, dropping off sharply where the meadow ends on a large, rocky set of cliffs. This waterfall crashes down into a large pool at the bottom, perfect for catching fish or having a swim. There is a slope on either side of the cliffs to allow easier access to the pool at the bottom, though tunnels are also an option.
Prey: Fish, Water voles, Frogs, Birds, Shrews
Dangers: Drowning, Large rocks, Falling, Snakes

The Pools
thumb

If you follow the stream that branches out from the pool at the bottom of the Waterfall long enough, you will eventually get to a series of small, clustered pools that flow into a larger body of water. There are a few trees scattered here and there, and usually the only good hunting are birds and frogs that make their home near the water.
Prey: Small fish, Frogs, Birds
Dangers: Turtles, Snakes, Falling trees, Hawks

The Forest
thumb

The forest is relatively small, not really being much of a "forest" at all. It is made up of a band of clustered trees that wrap around the hill the camp is located under, and the exit of the trees can easily be seen from the other side of the forest. Prey includes mice, shrew, birds, and squirrels.
Prey: Mice, Shrews, Birds, Squirrels
Dangers: Falling trees, Badgers, Foxes, Owls
