Act 7, the Return of the Pantheon.
Staff Team
Welcome to Crystal Empire, USA
The Dark Alliance has faced a divide: Queen Nehellenia has been purified and is now the Goddess and ruler of the Moon. With her purification at the hands of Neo Queen Serenity and Neo Sailor Moon, there is a shift in the wind – Greek deities (original planet rulers), heralds (Sailors/Knights) and Augurs (priest(esses) and consorts) from the past are being revived and Hades has been unsealed.

With the coming of Hades has seen the unsealing of Satre and Hyperion, and the future is now even more uncertain as the ruler of Nemesis has a vendetta against Chronos…and more. The Future Moon have now since reunited with the Crystal Empire, their memories have been restored. Will they be able to save their future that they can no longer return to?

Eternal is a Sailor Moon role play, rated L3/S3/V3 and self-hosted utilizing MyBB, a software identical to JCink. We use Member Profiles for our application process and focus on a story act system. We have a plethora of canons available including many popular ones. We’re set after Sailor Moon, merging the 90s anime, manga, Sailor Moon Crystal into one game. We accept original characters and use real life face claims.

Rules

General

Conduct, Age and Rating

Eternal requires that all members are 16 years of age. We are a self-hosted MyBB forum (which is just like JCink) with a rating of language 3, violence 3, and sex 3.

We consider Eternal to be a welcoming, drama free environment. LGBTQA+ is encouraged at Eternal and our staff and members are part of the LGBTQA+ community. We ask that players are respectful of each other’s pronouns, and to refrain from misrepresentation. As such, discrimination, harassment, transphobia and homophobia are bannable offenses.

Registration

  • Register with your character's first and last name depending on their character's cultural naming conventions. For example, if your character is Asian, register surname forename, or if they're from America, register forename surname.
  • OOC accounts are mandatory to register. They must be one word, be solely your alias and not a fancy username. After all, this is what we know you by! We would rather see names such as Vii and disapprove of names like ViiMoon or ViiMoon22. Your OOC account must also be your Discord nickname. Our Member Directory is an automated function, so when you register your OOC account and connect your character account to it, you will have completed your Member Directory claim!
  • Discord: When you join our site make sure that you also join our Discord as it is mandatory. We ask that your Discord name also represents the alias that you wish to be called on the site. The PM system on the site is rarely used aside from reviews. Almost all of our communication and plotting is done through the Discord, and it's just an overall great way to get to know the community you're playing with~!
    • New joiners in the Discord will have 14 days from their joining time to register to the site and create a character. After which they will have until the end of their reservation to complete their character to remain in the Discord. If new joiners do not create a character, we will remove them after the initial 14 days.

Advertising

Do not advertise outside of the advertising forum, and do not discuss other RPGs that you are on or were on in the site Discord. Staff will kindly ask that you redirect those conversations to DMs. Site conversations in the Eternal discord should be geared towards Eternal only.

Staff DMs

Staff DMs and requests are mandatory to respond to. Lack of communication with staff can result in a warning and ban if the problem continues to persist. A simple acknowledgement message goes a long way.

Activity

  • Activity checks happen on the 1st of every month and last for one month, ending at 11:30pm EST on the last day of every month. We require players to respond to these using their OOC account and abide by the activity check guidelines for that month, as well as understand what role type their characters play. Be aware that only IC threads in role playing forums count towards activity checks! Threads posted in communications do not count. Staff members are accommodating to case-by-case situations when real life becomes hectic, provided that the players discuss their situations with staff. We understand role play is a hobby, and we want it to be enjoyable!
    • Faction Leaders are major canons who are required to post two posts per month at a minimum, and maintain an active presence on the forum. These roles are held to higher standards than other roles and are required to maintain activity every month.
    • Supporting Canons, or "minor roles" are IC positions where they are not required to have a major presence on the board. These roles are expected to post once a month at a minimum, and may claim a "skip month" every other month if they choose during activity checks. However, we do encourage you to post more than the minimum if you can.

Character's First Month Activity

After your acceptance, new characters must post at least one (1) IC post within fourteen (14) days of their acceptance date. This is essentially their activity check for the month that they were created. If you do not post within the first fourteen days, staff are at liberty to reopen your character if you have not discussed your situation with them.

After that first month, they will be required to abide by standard activity check guidelines if they are a leader or support role.

We strongly recommend that writing samples become your character’s first (1st) post so that way you can get started right away!

Absences

We permit absences even while we're running activity checks, as we feel that real life should always come first. Absences must be posted in the absence thread and have an expected end date. If you don't have an 'end date', please discuss your situation with the staff and we'll work something out. Please only post absences if you're going to be absent for more than 10 days. Absences that are posted 10 days before the activity check ends may not count unless discussed with by staff and have approval.

Character Creation

Limits

There are no character limits. You can play as many characters as you can reasonably handle, provided that you maintain activity with ALL of them.

We strongly ask that you know your own limits. If at any time staff feel that you are unable to handle more characters than your current load, we reserve the right to revoke your character creation rights until you demonstrate that you can handle your current characters.

We hold faction leaders to higher regard, and they must be able to maintain a notable presence on the board, so please bear this in mind if you’re playing one.

Character Post Minimum

Your two (2) characters are free, and then after your second character you must have five (5) posts on each of your characters. The process will continue for each character you make.

Please be aware that you can play as many characters as you can reasonably handle, and we do not have a character cap.

Characters that were made prior to November 14th, 2020 will have fallen under the grandfather clause, but characters that are made after November 14th will require to abide by this rule.

Series canons

Series canons are expected to uphold their original canon roles, personalities, histories and relationships. They are essentially, the same character that they were in the series, but more fleshed out. You can merge the 1990s anime, manga, Sailor Moon Crystal and Materials Collection for their information. Anything else is not canon to us.

We ask that players rename their canon’s civilian identity, e.g. Tsukino Usagi is Cynthia Lunette now, but she is still ultimately Usagi. This is primarily to suit the chosen ethnicity and background that you have made for your character.

The face claim that you choose to represent your canon MUST resemble your canon’s overall appearance, this is non-negotiable. While we can understand a character’s hairstyle not matching exactly, the character’s overall physical appearance must resemble that canon.

Series canons who were clearly not white or Asian (e.g. Sailor Pluto is dark skinned, so we expect that to remain intact) cannot be whitewashed. It is, however, permitted for players to racebent white or Asian characters if they choose. For example, Sailor Mars can be American or European if you choose.

Original Characters

Eternal primarily operates on our canon roster, which contains a plethora of roles for you to choose from, including original canon roles. We ask that players select a role from our canon roster to create their characters, as we desire that all characters belong to a preexisting faction.

Original Sailor Guardians and knights must belong to a preexisting faction (Future Moon, Galactica or Pantheon, Sol Knight) as well as exist currently on the canon roster. Each original canon roster role is vague enough for you to have plenty of creative freedom with, as we primarily only list their Guardian names and powers. Unfortunately, if you intend on playing a Guardian or Knight who does not have a role on the roster (e.g. a Sailor Pisces) they will not be considered. We ask that you attempt to implement your ideas into one of our roster roles instead, and staff are here to assist with giving you alternative options.

We do accept original Earthling civilians with no powers, as well as soldiers who are part of the Dark Alliance that are not listed on the rosters. Pantheon roles are restricted to canon roster roles.

Relatives

Original characters who are relatives to a series canon are acceptable on a case-by-case basis, and are generally more acceptable when consent has been given by affected parties. We would prefer that series canons who have original relatives are kept primarily to Silver Millennium identities, e.g. if Sailor Mars was to have a sibling, it would have been from her past life, not present. We would prefer you consult with staff before applying for this character type, or that it is already in a wanted ad.

Reclaiming and Dropping

You may drop characters at any time, we'd rather you play roles that you have the inspiration for. To drop characters you may do so during activity checks or in our moderation thread. To reclaim roles after you've dropped them, you may reclaim them also in the moderation thread by responding to it with a link to your profile and noting your desire to reclaim. However, be informed that you cannot create new characters until you have made 5 IC posts after your reclaimed date.

Reservations

  • Mandatory. First come, first serve.
  • Respond to the reservation thread with your character account only.
  • You can have only one reservation at a time.
  • Reservations last 14 days and a 5 day extension is given upon request.

Graphics

We use real life face claims only. Faces are required to be legitimately famous, e.g. making a profit, not doing it as a hobby, and they're signed. Animanga, artwork and illustrations are not permitted unless they're a canon representation of your canon character for gif purposes only for your smaller gif profile graphics (mini profile and small thread image).
  • Avatars must be 250w x 450h.
  • Mini profile gif is 209w 120h.
  • Post author gif size is 100w 100h.
  • Signatures are not permitted.

Role Playing

  • Writing: There is no word count on Eternal. Write what needs writing.
  • Posts should be written in third person.
  • Communicate with your partners and establish expectations with each other.
  • Ask your partner for consent on power-playing and god-moding.
  • IC actions have IC consequences.

Time Stamps

All threads must be time stamped. When you start a new thread, there will be a field for you to provide an IC date of your thread. If you don't have a specific date and only wish to provide the month and year, that is okay! But for IC Acts purposes, we need to know what month your thread took place.

Tagging

Members may tag each other in either the discord tagging channels or using @"Character Name" in their thread. Tagging is optional, but a courtesy to others!

Mature Threads

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. Rape threads and characters are not permitted on this site.

Templates

Are permitted and they're optional! We will never force you to use a templates. <3 However, due to MyBB's fussiness, we expect you to use the templates that we provide in the code bank. If you manage to get the code to work yourself, you may use it, provided that you post the template in your own player development board. Templates that require you to hover over an image are not permitted in IC areas. Please do not change the font sizes or family in your template~! We will permit default board sizes only to ensure readability.
