The Newbie Guide

Moon Rising is a post alien invasion Sailor Moon RPG based on the manga version and Sailor Moon Crystal, diverging after Act 19 and Act 23 of the Black Moon arc. The Black Moon conquered the Earth in 2014, making Sailor Senshi and the White Moon Public Enemy #1. There are sympathizers for the White Moon, Black Moon and Resistance factions which divides our world; but the Golden Kingdom and Galactica each have their own agendas which may either benefit or put Earthlings at a disadvantage.

Our Newbie Guide gives you an idea of what is mandatory and optional to read, and we don't expect you to memorize everything right away. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to ask in the cbox or Support Center.

Reminder: The 1990s anime is NOT canon here, we are solely based on the manga and Sailor Moon Crystal. Canons must be based on their manga and Crystal versions.
