October 2021 Updates (Storyline, Location Revision)
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.
Spring 2031 (March 1st - June 30th)

Rules

General

  • Age minimum is 16 years old.
  • Rating is language 3, violence 3, sex 3.
  • Community: LGBTQA+ is encouraged at Eternal and we strive to maintain a welcoming, drama free environment. Please be respectful of the use of pronouns and refrain from misrepresentation, discrimination, harassment, transphobia and homophobia, as it is a bannable offense.
  • Register with your character’s first and last name as well as an OOC account in proper case. Subaccounts are available, and once your OOC account becomes your master account, you will have completed your Member Directory claims.
  • Joining the site Discord is mandatory. The PM system is rarely used for communication. That said, you are not in any means required to communicate consistently in the main Discord community channel, but we need to be able to reach out to you through Discord if needed. Staff also post miscellaneous announcements in the Discord, and members use tagging channels in the Discord which has become the norm here. New Discord joiners will also have fourteen (14) days from the time they join to register and create a character, after which they will be removed from the Discord if they have not done so.
  • Advertising outside of the advertising forum is NOT ALLOWED. Please do not discuss other sites that you’re on or were on in the discord, staff will kindly ask that the discussion is moved to DMs.
  • Staff messages are mandatory to respond to. Lack of communication with staff can result in a warning and a ban if it persists. A simple acknowledgement goes a long way~!

Activity

  • Activity checks happen on the 1st of every month and end on the last day of each month at 11:59pm EST. Players must respond to the activity check thread using their OOC account and abide by activity check guidelines for that month or risk their characters being reopened.
  • Posts made 14 days prior to the activity check will count towards the new activity check, provided that they were not used in the previous activity check.
  • Only IC threads and posts count towards activity checks, communication threads don’t count.
  • Faction leaders are required to post 2 IC posts per month at a minimum, but cannot call skip unless an absence is posted. We encourage posting more than the minimum, as faction leaders should maintain a noticeable presence on the board.
  • Supporting canons are required to post 1 IC post per minimum, but may also have a “skip month” every other month if they choose. We encourage posting more than the minimum.

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 and you can play as many characters that you can maintain activity with. That said, your first two characters are free, and after your second character you must have five IC posts on each of your characters before you can create another. This will continue with each character you create.

Staff are at liberty to revoke character creation rights if we feel that you cannot handle more characters based on your current activity levels, but once you’re able to demonstrate that you can handle your characters, you can create more.

Series canons

  • Divergent: Series canons must uphold their original series canon identities, personalities, histories and relationships. They are the same character that they were in the series, but more fleshed out. You can use the 1990s anime, manga, Sailor Moon Crystal and Materials Collection for their information. Anything else is not canon to us.
  • Names: You must rename your canon character, e.g. Tsukino Usagi is Cynthia Lunette now, but she is still Tsukino Usagi. This is primarily to suit the chosen ethnicity and background for your character.
  • The Face Claim that you choose for your series canon MUST resemble your canon’s overall appearance, this is non-negotiable. While we understand if your chosen face doesn’t match exactly, the vibe and physical resemblance must be there.
  • Series canons who were clearly not white or Asian (e.g. Sailor Pluto is dark skinned, so we expect her to be here) cannot be whitewashed or racebent. It is allowed for players to racebent white or Asian characters if they choose. For example, Sailor Mars can be European if you choose.

Original Characters

Original characters are allowed, but they must belong to a preexisting site faction and currently exist on the site roster unless they’re a civilian without powers. Each original canon roster role is vague enough for you to have plenty of creative freedom with and implement your character’s ideas to. If you need assistance on which role may be best for your character, staff are here to help! However, if your only desire is to play a role with powers (e.g. Sailor Pisces) not on the roster they will be denied.

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.
  • All threads must be time stamped. There is a custom field for this when you start a new thread. Using only a month and a year allowed if you don’t want to provide a specific date.
  • 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. Players under 18 won’t be allowed to partake in mature threads. If we discover that you’re lying about your age and you’re playing in mature threads we will ban you. Rape is not tolerated on this site.
  • Templates are permitted and they’re optional to use. We offer a codebank for your disposal with site approved codes, and a guide on how to get JCink codes to work on our site. Please do not change the font sizes or family of your templates, please only use the site’s default font!
