What are Clans on Animal Jam?? Answer! :D

 Hey guys! Here's a really weird random conversation that happened to me. Some lion just randomly appeared in my den. Here's how it went:
Weird, right?

But anywho, I was asked what exactly ARE Clans on Animal Jam.
Good question! I wondered that for a loooong time until I read...

Erin Hunter's Warriors series

 That's what all (or at least, most) Animal Jam Clans are based off of. 
Here's how it works.

Someone randomly decides they want to start a Clan on AJ.
He or she goes to Jamaa Township, and promulgates (a fancy word for "declares" or "makes known") their Clan.
Here are some of the names I've seen people call Clans on AJ:
ICECLAN
FORESTCLAN
NIGHTCLAN
DEMONCLAN
FIRECLAN
and, obviously,
THUNDERCLAN
SHADOWCLAN
WINDCLAN
and
RIVERCLAN 
There are a lot more, too. :3 
People that want to join go to their den or Serepia - wherever the person decided to meet.
The Clan leader will accept you into the Clan, give you a warrior name, and viola! You are a member of a Clan! :D 
Clans on Animal Jam are mostly wolves, although some people "pretend" that they are cats. They keep the name Clan, however, even if they ARE wolves. It's just less confusing that way. :) well, actually MORE confusing, but in a different way. ;P

I know what you're thinking now:
"Yes, yes, but what do you DO in a Clan?" 

Another GOOD question! >:D

Clans often "hunt"
 Defend their "territory"


And (most often, sadly...) fight.

Of course, no one was fighting in any of the servers when I needed a pic... but I'm sure you can imagine. Sometimes the battles can get kinda ugly...

There are, of course, a lot of other things you can do in a Clan. I can't post EVERYTHING there is to know about Clans. :3 

But I hope this helps!


Thanks for reading!

  3. Thanks, that did help! If someone said for instance "Sun Wolf Pack in my den" would people come, or would they not recognize it as a clan? Or if someone said for instance "Star Lion Pride in Appondale" or "Rainstorm Fox Skulk in Sarepia Forest" or "Jewel Horse Herd in Mt. Shiveer" would that amount to anything? I think I'll try that out. Go to ScaryBats's den to join Frost Fox Skulk! (lol)
    PS. ScaryBats is a member account someone gave Kinyonga and myself, just so you know.

  4. I used to be in a ninja fox clan (it lasted like 3 weeks, and we met EVERYDAY we had uniforms, and we had special clan parties) Our first fight was so wack, their was cussin', and one of the members "family's" showed up, and joined in. Our "territory" was the canyons pathway, and the blue ninja got banned for 3 days for cussing! He was my buddy for quite a while, and I wouldn't expect that from him. It was after that the clan started to drift apart... We weren't like most clans, but I think that's why we lasted so long...

  10. Sadly all of this out of date. Clans don't fight anymore because they are a bunch of dummies. They always say it's a virtual world and walk away.

  11. DO they now? When I was on AJ, I was an apprentice hunting solo in Serapia, until these cruel wolves walked over (LightningClan) and practically fought me to the death -.- So that was the last time I joined a Clan. Plus, you can't keep track of Clans anyway.

  12. TheOrginalTombstone who is a leader of a Windclan told that he would try to do the same as Madjaster since he locked his den. I heard and saw him mostly in Amur and in Serpia Forest. His deputy is Lividcoofee and his camp is great enough. I think he only take an server instead than trying to take a populated server like Tigirs or Aldan.
