"Long ago, there was a group of cats called Runeclan. When their leader died, the clan fell into a civil war, as their previous leader hadn't named his successor. The two strongest cats in the clan, Blackear and Stripeclaw, both tried to take over, and thus the war began."
"The clan's healer, Rustfire, warned against fighting, saying that Starclan wouldn't approve, but the cats did not listen. However, the battle didn't last long. Soon both Sripeclaw and Blackear were dead, struck down by fatal blows from the other."
"One cat, Emberscar, had not fought in the war, and he consulted with Rustfire on what they should do next. Emberscar suggested that Rustfire go and visit the Mooncave, the place where healers could converse with there ancestors, and so that is what Rustfire did."
"Rustfire went to visit the ancestors of the clan in the Mooncave, and there they told him that only a cat who knew that fighting was evil and had not been swayed by the greed of Blackear and Stripeclaw could lead the clan to greatness again. Rustfire knew instantly who that was."
"When Rustfire returned, he saw that Emberscar had helped the clan restore itself, burying the dead and restocking prey. Rustfire announced that the ancestors told him Emberscar was to be the next leader."
"Under the rule of Emberstar, Runeclan returned to its former glory, and there has been peace in the forest ever since"
