Eternal
Welcome to Eternal, a post Sailor Moon Stars site relocated to Orlando, Florida, utilizing the canon portrayals as they were in the series. We’re set during the rise of Crystal City, shortly after King Endymion and Neo Queen Serenity ascended the throne. Wiseman is making his mark for the first time in history and creating the Black Moon as a human, but lingering in the shadows, the Dark Kingdom is also slowly reforming.

Rules

You must be at least 16 to join. Language 3, Violence 3, Sexual 3. Mature topics must be marked with an [M] in their title, and players under the age of 18 will not be allowed to partake in mature threads. If we discover that you are lying about your age and playing in mature threads, you will be banned.
Common courtesies and respect is expected. We desire to create a welcoming, out of character drama free environment where players can have a good time. We consider Eternal to be a safe place for LGBTQA+. Please be respectful with pronouns. Discrimination and harassment won't be tolerated. Inform a staff member if you have any issues.

Register using their civilian identity only. OOC accounts are required to be registered in order to post in certain areas of the site.
There is no word count, but please provide your partner with something to respond with. Your writing level should be of a good quality. Please use good grammar, spelling and punctuation in your posts. Keep chat speak to a bare minimum as well. All IC posts must be written in third person, past tense.

All IC threads must be time stamped.
IC actions have IC consequences.
Death is permanent. Do not kill a character without the player’s permission and don’t kill a canon character without permission from staff. Yes, even if your character is immortal your character can still be killed by mortal means. They are not invulnerable.
Post templates are allowed to be used. However, templates that require you to hover to read your post are NOT allowed in IC areas. You may NOT alter the font family, font size or font colors of the board, default only. That said, MyBB is very fussy about codes and not all codes will work. If you want to use a template, it is up to you to make it work for the board, not the staff.

Activity

Our posting minimum consist of two IC post a month per canon character, with some noteworthy expectations below.

Activity Checks: Activity checks are held on a monthly basis starting on the 12th and ending on the 11th of every month at 11:59pm EST. We expect all players to be able to meet the monthly activity requirements, therefore it should be easy for you to qualify for our checks. Posts made a week before the check will be accepted as AC activity. Absences will be considered for an AC if it was posted before the newest AC, but be aware that we won't acknowledge your absent notices if we notice that you're only posting them for activity checks.

White Moon and faction leaders activity:
We expect ALL White Moon canons and faction leaders to be able to maintain regular activity on the board as well as a noticeable presence. These canons should be posted for every two weeks to maintain activity. We consider faction leaders to be canons such as Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, Sailor Uranus; King Endymion and Kunzite; Princess Lady Serenity and Sailor Ceres; Queen Metaria, Queen Beryl and Moon Knight; Sailor Nemesis; Wiseman, Diamond and Rubeus; Sailor Star Fighter; Sailor Cocoon, and those are just examples of faction leaders. If you're unsure if your canon is a faction leader, please ask the staff. We consider a "noticeable presence" to be posting for regularly.

Minor canons, original characters and activity:
These character types are not as demanding as major canons and White Moon and may be posted for in activity checks for every other AC, e.g. if Sailor Mau posted for September's AC with a minor canon, that minor canon can skip October's activity check and post during November. We still expect you to post at least once a month in order to meet activity requirements.

Absences. Inform us of all absences in the Absence Thread if you are going to be gone for more than 14 days. Absences posted in the Absence Thread must have an exact date of when to expect you to return, they cannot be open ended or extend for months at a time. Exceptions are given on a case-by-case basis and only if the player discussed the matter with staff. While we appreciate discord notifications, the Absence Thread makes the absence official and it's what will be taken into primary consideration. In the event that there is an activity check, only absences posted before the activity check was posted are taken into consideration unless discussed with staff and approved.

Character Creation

We operate on reservations. In order to apply for a canon character, you must respond to the canon reservations thread and reserve that canon. Their reservation will be held for 14 days starting from your reservation request date. Please submit a WIP in the main forum of Character Creation and update regularly within this time, that way we know that you’re working on your application. That said, if you don’t finish it within the 14 day time period, you’re welcome to extend it for an additional 5 days.

After that 5 day extension, no re-reservations will be given, and the canon is put up as available for someone else to reserve. You can continue working on your application with the understanding that someone else can reserve the role at any time, and they will have priority.
Character limits. Your first four characters are free, but after that you must have at least five IC posts on each of your accounts to apply for additional characters. Please only play as many characters as you can reasonably keep active. If staff find that you’re unable to maintain activity across your characters, we may choose to revoke or prevent you from applying for more.
Series canon portrayal. This is not an alternate universe game. Canon characters must be portrayed like they were in the series, but utilizing the names, ethnicities and stats that you’ve chosen. They’d have retained the same relationship statuses as well. That said, we welcome canons to be based on the 1990s anime, the manga, Sailor Moon Crystal, and the Materials Collection, with the acknowledgment that our main story is based primarily on the manga version of Sailor Moon.
Mini profile. You must fill out your mini profile in order to be approved. We know it’s tedious but it gets all your claims done and updated by yourself! You can update your mini profile in Edit Profile. Please also remember to link to your character’s application!

Graphics

All faces chosen must be 18 years or older and they must be legitimately famous. This means that no character can be under 18 as well. They must also be real life celebrities, this is non-negotiable. We also ask players to refrain from using animanga, video game, illustrations (e.g. fanart), cartoons; cosplayers, yourself or acquaintances; people from social networks or internet celebrities as your faces.
Canon characters are expected to resemble their animanga counterparts as they still are that canon, even if the game has been relocated. You are welcome to choose the character’s ethnicity, but again, please bear in mind their appearance in the series. If Sailor Pluto was dark skinned in the manga, we don’t want her Caucasian here. Whitewashing is ultimately unacceptable, however, you are welcome to still choose your character's ethnicity bearing in mind the canon character's overall appearance.
Our avatar height is 230px width and 350px height. We don’t allow signatures. Gifs are allowed only in the mini profile avatar, they cannot be your main avatar.
Our face claim system is also automated and optional. After your acceptance YOU’RE responsible for claiming your face in UCP> Edit Profiles > Face Claim profile field for it to show in our face Claims and Directory. However, be aware that we don’t consider faces taken or reserved until your character has been approved.

Staff are at liberty to modify the rules at any given time, and members are expected to adhere by rule modifications. Staff will always provide notification on when the rules have been updated.
