Okay what I'm interested in warriors in a Sonoran Desert setting. edit: frosty ninja'd my desert cats but anyways
They would have to be positioned near some sort of water source, otherwise drought could be a problem. Other interesting area related problems: sandstorms (yes actual sandstorms, not the character sandstorm), extremely cold nights. Interesting enemies could include coyotes, eagles, scorpions, and maybe even javelinas.
Common names for these Arizonian clans might include prefixes like lizard-, prickle-, cactus-, runner- (like roadrunner), dusty-, copper-, and so on.
Finally some theoretical clan names: Rockyclan - These cats lives in a series of somewhat mountainous tunnels in an especially rocky part of the territory. Springclan - These cats camp nearest to the spring that provides water for the territories, among some of the foliage that the desert provides. Fireclan - These cats live in the flat area, where the sands are the hottest, and camp in some abandoned twoleg structures, which provides them shade. These three clans patrol a vast amount of territory, and though prey can run scarce, border fights are generally low in numbers, as it is often seen to merely waste energy, as the clans live pretty far apart from each other, with only the springs as a common centerpoint. Clan Gatherings happen much less frequently: only four times of year, once with each season change. Medicine cats stay much more in touch with each other too: a special patch near the springs serves as the main source of herb gathering, and after many disagreements and a few battles over the area, it was finally agreed to be neutral territory, to serve all the clans. The medicine cats thus converse and exchange tips when they go to gather their herbs. Finally, the highest point in the territories is called Flatstone, and it is where spiritual connections with StarClan take place, as the cats believe being highest puts them closest to StarClan.
Well this was meant to be short but then I accidentally some words.
