My two D&D characters with any real play behind them are a pacifistic half-orc evangelist, and a minute-but-murderous brownie who thinks he's the Tarrasque/ the Tarrasque twisted by powerful magics into a pitiful mortal frame.
So it's pretty much me in my off time and work hours. I don't have to get too creative with the role playing.

So, hypothetically, for reasons, say moonfolk weren't associated with blue.
What color/geography would probably suit them?

I have a first instinct, but I want to see what everyone else has to say.

Red. High mountain peaks, separate from the world below, close to the heavens.

Just my first instinct. White could also work, but red's had moon stuff since Alpha.

I feel like the red/moon connection's a bit of a holdover. Bad moon tells us that the moon is a creepy black sphere, but we don't see a lot of references to Bad Moon to reinforce the connection. *grumble* White cats *grumble*
Rabbits could easily be green as animals, but as docile, almost-domestic herbivores (and on Kamigawa, highly organized herbivors) white is likely the best fit.

The problem with that approach is that it assumes the cultural touchstone used in Kamigawa, the rabbits to moon connection, is the most central conceit to Moonfolk.
If, for example, there were Moonfolk on Innistrad... they would be associated with birds.

I assumed "moonfolk" was being used as a term for the rabbit people of Kamigawa and the discussion was about Kamigawan-style rabbit people on other planes.
Getting further of topic, but rabbit folk without the moon connection would probably be green with a token focus. Maybe with a "tap any 2 nontoken rabbits to get a 1/1 token" theme.
