Hello and welcome to Sailor Moon Crystal Chronicles an alternate reality Sailor Moon role playing game. We are brought here both by the love of the fandom and a desire to write. Here at SMCC we are a beginner friendly but will hold our members to certain standards. In regards to this please pay attention to the posting rules, canon rules, and word count rules that are currently in effect. Below are listed every rule of the board if you have any question feel free to message any admin.
The Golden Rule
This is an obvious one. Be nice and play fair. We don't expect everybody to get along all the time, but what we do expect is for everybody to respect one another. If you do have a problem with another member, then you can take it to a PM. If you feel you can't resolve the issue on your own, PM an Admin and we'll play mediator for you. We are all coming together to create a story as a creative whole. No one person should ever feel as though their voice, opinions, input, or self-worth is less than anyone else's. So let's all adhere to the Golden Rule?
Code of Conduct
Under no circumstances is disrespect now or ever will be acceptable. If you have an issue, take it to a PM or IM. On that note, we won't hesitate to ban any member that breaks this rule. The rule of thumb is to respect others. Characters might have their prejudices and beliefs, but out of character, there is a zero tolerance policy for discrimination.if we see in character situations being used to further any out of character disagreements, we will not hesitate to delete the account and/or ban the player. No bullying will be allowed. Slander and defamation is right out. No players will be discriminated against for their age, gender identity, ethnic group, sexual orientation, military status, occupation, disabilities, religion, social subculture, or national status. Please place the following things at the end of your character application so we know the rules were read.
Crystal Chronicles is currently rated at a 2-1-2 what that basically means is we are keeping the writing at a PG-13 rating. Proboards has strict rules about this and we will adhere to them. So what does this mean for us?
2- Swearing is generally permitted, with some limitations what this means is that you are able to add swears into your post (as long as it isn’t hate speech and not in excess.) For example every other word doesn’t need to be a swear but swearing to make your point is allowed.
1-Mild sexual innuendo and references permitted. Full on smut scenes will be deleted without warning and you will receive some sort of negative consequence. Basically what this means is you may write how you characters feels up until the point of a sexual act. You may choose with your scene partner to fade to black or you can pick up right after the fact. Again this is a rule by proboards not by SMCC.
2-Explicit violence is permitted some of the greatest scenes in Sailor Moon require a lot of violence and that is something we understand here but please use discretion when writing these scenes out. There is a reason villains burst into sparkles in the show and manga.
You are allowed to only reserve one canon character at a time and you must finish your application within a week’s time. If your application is not turned in you will loss that right to that character and it will become open for someone else to pick up. (WIP) does not count toward this if the application isn’t turned in on time it will be moved to rejected. Of course outside circumstances sometimes come into play please contact an admin if anything should arise
Our Current character limit is two Canon C haracters and two Original Characters. This is to keep things fair for anyone who may want to join, as well as to make sure you can keep up with activity. It's not nice to character squat. You may be able to apply for a third with mod permission after two weeks of keeping up your activity with four. For Every character you make please make a separate account you can do this by logging out and reregistering with the same email. The board will tell you that you have used this email before but continue to make a new account and they should be link . To switch between accounts simple click the button on the bottom right of your screen that looks like this you should be able to manage several different accounts this way
Any and all baby plot MUST be approved with staff before pushing forward, ESPECIALLY if it involves a canon character. Please send a PM to the main admin account (The Holy Grail) before doing anything IC. This is to make sure genre and continuity continues.. This is not to say we will automatically deny, but staff MUST confer before any roleplay happens. If you are trying to make an Original Character connected to a Canon Character PLEASE speak with Staff before your application goes up. Most of the families in canon have very specific Trees that will become a mess if random relations start coming out of the woodwork. Plus, people shouldn't come out of woodwork, it's just messy. Understand that characters like this are hard to approve on the off-chance the canon you want to be related to has a player who isn't fond of the idea. We'll try and find a way for you to play what you want, but canon needs to be considered by all parties involved. Alternate history/reality characters will NOT be allowed. If you are choosing to play a character on the boards, they must be from the current reality that the story is taking place in. Staff will allow exceptions on a case by case basis, but they must be approved before they are applied for.
Canon Sailor Senshi/Soldiers- First off either name is acceptable. Now to begin with the nature of our plot ALL SENSHI will be downgraded to their original senshi forms and will be leveled up with our leveling System (This will be explored in the rules later) This is so that everyone is on the same page from the start and will be tied into the plot. Furthermore all Senshi will be named using their original names since not everyone came to the fandom through a certain dub so it makes sense to keep their names from their original incarnations.
Original senshi/Soldiers- Original senshi will be allowed and can be from anywhere in the universe. There names do not have to be japanese in origin. They must draw their power from a celestial body (except for moons this will be explained later) For example there will be no Sailor Fire but you may want to consider Sailor Sol or Sun. Before this is asked there will be no Sailor Earth Endymion holds the start seed for that planet therefore is the equivalent to Sailor Earth.
Celestial Knights - This is a deviation from the original story line a whole lot. While men are not allowed to be Sailor Senshi we have created a new type of guardian. In our solar system they will draw their powers from the moons of particular planet's if the planet doesn’t have a moon or in the case of Endymion they can draw their powers from a certain stone. Their powers will be similar to the senshi in which they represent and are sworn to protect their particular princess. You may make Celestial Knights from other Galaxies as well not tied to our solar System. Their outfits are reminiscent of The Shitennou or Prince Endymion you may draw you inspiration from either if you simply prefer the senshi's fuku style with pants you may do that as well. In the case you have a character whose gender identity doesn’t match their power. You have options you may play out the struggle of being a particular guardian whose power doesn’t match their body or They can be changed by their own power wear the outfit that best represents their inner self. If there’s any other variation you would like to try out please let us know.
Villains- Because of the nature of our plot you may bring back any villain from the past within reason of course. They won’t be as strong as they once were. Furthermore if you would like to make or play and random one shot “Monster of the week” please feel free too they won’t count toward your original or canon characters count and it may be a fun way to test the evil waters. NO PLAYER SHALL PLAY A CHARACTER DIRECTLY RELATED OR INVOLVED WITH A CHARACTER THEY ARE APPLYING FOR OR HAVE ALREADY MADE NO EXCEPTIONS ! this means you cant play your own Family member, lover, familiar.best friend ect...This will keep the story more balanced and besides who want to roleplay in a thread allow that's what fanfics are for.
Please no one under 13 as your face claim
Allies-All characters in the Sailor Moon universe are open to be played from Humans such as Naru to familiars like Luna.
All posts must be in third person and in past tense. This is a very simple rule and one that we ask you to abide by in order for this experience to be enjoyable for all. This rule is not negotiable. If you can't roleplay in third person or make your posts in past tense, then this board is probably not for you. Chat speak is strictly prohibited in posts. We also ask that you use correct spelling and punctuation in your posts. Of course a small spelling error here and there is natural, but if every other word is spelled incorrectly, you will be warned. If you know your spelling is weak, please be courteous to others and use a spell checker.
We have a 200 word count here. You can always write more than this, and we encourage it! A good rule of thumb is make sure to give your scene partner something to play off of. Think of the whole picture when you post. Setting the scene is an important thing that people often forget! Just think of the difference between running into a stranger in the middle of a mall in daylight or running into a stranger at midnight in an old abandoned warehouse with creepy chains and bloodstains. Totally different, Right? Also, use your Five Senses (occasionally Six for our Psychics out there!) What do you See, Smell, Hear, Taste, Touch, Sense (psychically), or Feel Emotionally? What are you thinking? All of these can really fill up a post and take a scene from 'eh…' to 'WHOA!!' in a heartbeat! And remember, dialogue is fun! These 'verses all have fun dialogue, so trying saying out loud what you want your character to say to make sure it sounds good. Staff does it all the time, much to the chagrin of those around us!
No God-modding or power playing. It's a simple rule and one that most of you already know of and abide by. You cannot take control over somebody else's character without their express consent. You also can't have your characters do something or perform some action that is outside of that character. This also means that your character is not omnipotent. If something happens in a closed scene, then you need to have a darn good reason to be privy to it. All people involved with the scene need to be talked to and addressed! If you break this rule, expect a warning. Second warning for this will get you suspended or possibly banned.
Please posting turn order if the person before you hasn't posted in a weeks time contact and admin and we will take care of it. This is especially important for large group scenes. If you have any questions at all contact any of the admins.
Staff will be running monthly activity checks to see what characters are active or inactive. If you do not check in within this time frame and have not posted in the “Away or Hiatus boards” all of your characters will be marked as inactive. Furthermore if you do not post in character within a week your characters will be marked as inactive and moved again. If you are stuck in a scene with someone who has not posted in a week please contact one of the admin.
Once you have been approved, you have four days from your date of approval to either get into a scene or start up a thread of your own. Look around for open threads to get involved in. Start an open thread of your own. PM someone that looks interesting and see if they want to play. Just get involved somehow! Trust me, the people here are very friendly, and want to play with you, too. Also, keep in mind that threads should and do end! Once a thread of yours has been finished up and closed out, you have another week to get involved in another thread and stay active. If a thread has been silent for two weeks, it will be closed down and moved into the archives. This does not mean that it is dead. This just means that you need to get into contact with a staff member to have it reopened and moved back into the active section. OOC posts do not count towards your activity. While all of the OOC things are wonderful and we encourage you to get involved, please RP. It's what these boards were made for!
Leveling up your character is very simple and is based on the amount of writing you are doing per character. You will receive new token in your mini profile that will show your progression as a senshi
