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 and must be responded to within 48 hours. 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 will happen on the 1st of every month and last until the last day of the month at 11:59pm EST. Failure to respond to activity checks can result in the loss of characters. Staff will announce if there is no activity check for that month in the Discord.

We separate characters into tiers, and each tier has their own activity guidelines for each AC. They are as follows:
  • Tier 1 (T1) characters are required to post two times a month, every month, unless an absence is posted. These characters are held to higher standard, and are expected to maintain a noticeable presence on the board.
  • Tier 2 (T2) characters are required to post once a month and may claim one skip month every other month, and must mention that they are claiming skip in the current activity check. For example, if a T2 character posts in September, they can skip in October, but must post in November to keep their character.
  • Tier 3 (T3) characters are required to post IC once every four months and must respond to AC's on the fourth month to keep their character. During each AC we will label them as month 1 (M1), month 2, month 3, and then month 4 to notate their expected posting status.

Event Threads

Exceptions to rules are made for threads that are considered “event” threads or high plot moving threads. A post must be made in those threads on a regular basis (preferably once every 14 days at a minimum) unless otherwise noted or discussed with staff. This is said for all tiers, as we desire to keep the plot moving and not stagnant.

Posts

Posts made 7 days before an activity check can be used towards the most recent activity check, provided that they are they were not used in the previous activity check.

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

Absences are allowed even during activity checks, but we ask that you inform staff of your situation if you are posting an absence 7 days before the end of an activity check. Absences must have an end date. Similarly, absences should be for occurrences that will last 14 or more days. We understand that real life comes first, and encourage you to focus on self-care.

We do not acknowledge absences that are posted only in the Discord as they are easily missed. Please ensure that you post in the Absence thread to be safe.

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. This is non-negotiable. You cannot work on a character without a reservation.
  • Respond to the reservation thread with your character account only. Failure to do so will make the reservation invalid, and staff can opt to remove the reservation if the character account is not registered within 48 hours after a warning has been given.
  • You can have only one reservation at a time.
  • Reservations last 7 days and a 4 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. Please do not assume things about other people’s characters. When in doubt, please always just ask, and if you’re unsure of something site related, ask. Staff are here to help.
  • 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!
