Obsidian, an elite scientist given two ships to conduct whatever she pleases from both Yellow and White Diamond has lost one due to the event prior (party crasher) just to get revenge and possibly capture a gem. That plan was horribly gone wrong all thanks to a overbust gem named carbide, a old-fashioned idiot, and a small blue drunk gem. These three gems managed to take down a ship and many of her automatons, now reduced to severly nothing Obsidian has to rely on her remaining automatons, a pearl, and sugar; her personal bodyguard to protect her and retrieve resources to keep her projects going and to validate her usefulness to Homeworld.
Obsidian looks over to her makeshift baseship, covered with leaves and dirt to act as camouflage within her lonely island she managed to find during her adventure to find a new place to store her ships ( Reinforcements), resting beside her ship is a poorly executed machine that is producing her newest creation... Stelleria Drones or commonly known as gem drones. actual gem automatons that has limbs to defend themselves with and can be created for many different uses. " I need more resources in order to produce these correctly.." Obsidian talked to herself, looking over her gem drones that keep falling over and shattering into pieces. She needed more better high grade resources but she needs gems to cover her or fetch her items without her being discovered by her enemies.
After that... interesting little meeting with Yellow Peridot, Bloodstone and dear Hunter, Morion recived a report, about some ship-sightings, rumors His Human Pearls always looked for Gem-activity A Gem ship... Rebel ship? Loyal to the Homeworld? Independent? Or the Diamonds finally send someone to investigate? It was important enough to go himself Luckly there was a warp on the little islad (Morion suspected, there is a hidden pattern, how and why the Warps are positioned, but he couldn't solve it... on a Gem Colony, there is an Order for these things! On Earth? Seemed random... If there was a patter, it wasn't finished, what made it hard to solve it. ) Anyhow, He arrived alone, then looked around It was exciting! A new hunting ground!

The remaining Automaton's sensors managed to pick up a gem near the camp without a second to waste they alerted Obsidian. The Mad Scientist data-pad flashed red and blared an alarm. "Already?!" Obsidian nearly panicked but tried her best to remain calm, with a wave of her hand ( over her gem stone of course) She summoned her weapon and turns her attention to the source of what her automatons perceived to a gem nearby. " I'll have to just stand my ground and test out my new automaton on this intruder." With a cocky smirk a new variant of the Automaton floats by her, unlike the most other automatons, this one in particular has the top part of it's circular sharp cut off and placed with a hole and it was also removed from it's self defense weapons such as Tasers, drills, ect.
The Assassin walked calmly It was a nice little island Maybe there was something here... or was in the plans to instal something here, and thats why this little island paradise had a warp-pad The Smoky Quartz was in his humanoid form, just came from the Kindergarten-camp He was in a tuxedo with a cane, without any mask. He was a tall ('Quartz tall^^) Gem (but not bulky like a Jasper or Amethyst, his kind was slender) with long grey hair and silver eyes. It was evident, he was wearing real, human clothes, it wasn't his projection, since the shirt and vest hided his Gem. His skin tone was a bit grey...ish, like the smoke, but he could pass as a caucasian man. "I'm here my Pearl... don't worry! Continue the excavations in Area F3 and F5! Try to salvage as much Gem-tech as you can! If my human Rubies find a dormant Gem, that survived te sabotage in that Kindergarten follow the M-Protocol! Understand?" "Si senor M! Good luck!" "Thank you..."
It wasn't a Gem-communicator, but this little human communication device was quite usefull! The Assassin looked around
"Come out, come out... wherever you are. Don't be shy... "

Obsidian stood her ground along with some of her remaining droids, The last remaining pearl of her own retreated back to the ship and left the stelleria automaton maker exposed (Even though it was barely functional in the first place). "Come out you little rat, I won't hurt you i promise~" she turns her attention back to exposed stelleria automaton maker "Why would you... Why am i surrounded by idiots, You three!" She pointed to the three normal variant automatons that were with her "Head back into the ship, activate the ship's claw and bring that machine in!" referring to the stelleria automaton maker.
"Activate the ship's engines i am not letting anyone steal my last functional ship under my watch.." She ordered the pearl who had retreated back into the ship from her data-pad. The engines began to hum a a low rumble, which silently echoed through the forest to wherever Morion was.
It was the unmistakable sound of an engine A Gem-ship's engine! It was devine, heavenly music for Morion Heck, it would be a devine, heavenly music for anyone that straned on this cursed planet... Earth
"I promise, I will not hurt you... who ever you are"
The Smoky Quartz looked around, tried to locate the source of the hum, the low rumble, the silently echoing song of the Gem-ship But the Assassin wasn't careless... he was cautious. Well it was time to Plan B The Gem retreated back to the shadows of the trees He know nothing the ship, the Gem... was it a scout ship? A colony ship? A war ship? A science ship? And who was the Gem? Rebel, a Crystal Gem? Independent? Loyal, Homeworld Gem? To much question... to much He was desperate but not that desperate to risk capture, or any surprise attack He watched the forest, the trees from the darkness and smoke, silently sneaking in the shadows... searching that ship

"Come on... follow the source of the sound you idiot.." Obsidian cursed under her breath, standing her ground as she looks at the edge of the billions of trees that stood prominent on this island. The automatons began to recall in the stelleria drone maker into the ship's haul meanwhile the Pearl slowly began to lift off from the ground. "Just take the damn bait!" she said impatiently as she continued to look at the forest edge from where she stood. (That's what i got for now, im tired but i didn't want to make you wait and i kinda hate it when i can't think of anything else just to reach 120 words, it pisses me off. well im at that limit. Oh don't worry i won't keep doing this. this is probs a one time thing because i am tired.)
Finally, the Smoky Quartz found the source of the sound It was a nice ship, to be honest, Morion was a bit jealous; he never had his own ship (well, not counting the curent one, the only the Diamonds knows how many thousands, if not million years old ancient vessel, the ship wreck, the old Colony Ship, his beloved Derelict. One day that good old spaceship will fly again! The thought of the Derelict hovering majestically over a city, like a floating island, or a fortress was heart warming) The Assassin never had his own ship... as an Infiltrator, owning a ship, or a true face would have been foolish Anyhow, this ship was a nice one The Smoky Quartz stopped, and watched the vessel with an admiring look But he was not a fool... the ship belonged someone, somone who Morion didn't know. Suicide runs was never one of his hobbies... So, the Gem stopped, and watched the Gem-technologycal marvel from the shadow of the trees
"I don't know you can hear me or not... but I come with peace? I guess if you were a Rebel, you would have crashed your own ship, just to be sure, no Loyal Gem could get it, and endanger the Crystal Gem's pathetic little Rebellion and plans. Or if you are one, you are not a strong beliver, you must have your dubts and not a blind fool, following Rose Quartz... anyhow, I think It is safe to play with open hands"
The Gem rested on his cane
"I'm afraid we haven't had the pleasure to meet before... let me intorduce myself! I am Smoky Quartz, from the Morion variant - Facet-7F2R Cut-8YQ; Her Majesty's Blue Diamond's loyal servant, I AM her eye... I am her Wrath! Currently lended for a few missions to Her Majesty, White Diamond... you can say, I'm a licensed hunter, assassin of our Matriarchs."
Morion bowed a little, in case some hidden "eyes" watched him. Then waited, ready to leave the scene if anything goeas wrong

A licensed hunter? Is this a joke? How did a low ranking job get so huge back during Homeworld! Well, to come to think it is from Blue Diamond and that Diamond alone is weird for Obsidian tastes. " A assassin for our matriarchs? Don't me laugh! why should i believe you!" Obsidian could only contain her laughter, someone who is equal to her in ranking? or worse higher than her? It was something to laugh at if you had the same ego levels as Obsidian. Of course she would believe you if you had shown her some proof, like with her (decorated) detailed symbols such as her hidden Yellow/White Diamond symbols that rested on her Saturn rings-part of her outfit.
"So tell me, Mister assassin~" She giggled, having her drones backed down from the "threat" "What is a high ranking assassin such as you, doing in this island alone! Last time i checked there was no one here but me!"
"I don't really need some unknown Gem's belief... If you are important enough, you know us. If not, then I do not really owe you any proof or explanation"
The Smoky Quartz answered calmly to the drones (I suspect, Obisidan's voice is coming from one of them and she is stil in the safety of her ship ^^)
"My Humans noticed your ship... actually there were several sightings, and my human Peridots calculated you landed here... somewhere. So I came here to check it out. Personally. This reminds me, I will need to reward their work..."
The Assassin murmured, then poked the closest drone with his cane
"Advanced Gem technology, a working, flying ship... and the possibility that you are not a Crystal Gem. These are enough reasons for me, to want to know you better. If the feeling is mutual... I am open to suggestions, where to continue this? It is understandable, you don't want to come out... and it would be foolish for me to go in to your ship, and please don't insult my intelligence with trying to convince me otherwise... so how about somewhere neutral?"
Post by The Scientist, Obsidian on Jul 20, 2016 5:31:36 GMT
"Did this gem just insulted me?!" a small "tck" was heard from the mouth of Obsidian, really angry that a gem just insulted her and she still hasn't found him yet. The drones tried to pick up on the source of the voice within the forest but it would prove dangerous for the droids to go into the forest with a "assassin" hiding in there still. The closest drone to Morion was lucky enough to get poked, swirling to it's left, it managed to spot a gem, closely similar to a human wielding a cane, with this newfound discovery, the automaton managed to send a signal back to the ship's computer, sending coordinates and information where this intruder was.
"Human peridots?" Obsidian muttered, something she has never heard nor seen before. Did this gem just say that his slaves were a fusion or a product of a gem and human? can a thing be possible? "Interesting... maybe i'll play along.." She thought. "Alright where do you suggest we meet up then?" asked Obsidian through the speakers of the Automaton closest to Morion.
"The Lunar Sea Spire is a neutral place... the temple is the place of tranquility, not violance. The palace of culture, debates, philosophy... not swords and guns and fights."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Or... if you have better idea, I am open to suggestions as I said."
Morion smiled to the drone
"Or here. There is a Warp Pad over there... we could talk there. And If you ever feel threatened, just a jump and warp away to safety. But I promise I will not hurt you! As you can see, I am alone. You have these nice little drones to accompany you. So you have the advantage here. Besides we are at War, and I am gathering allies, not enemies."
Post by The Scientist, Obsidian on Jul 22, 2016 21:24:05 GMT
"A warp pad... So that's how he got here.." Murmured Obsidian, thinking about her options in this situation, The drones have located the intruder and nothing else and IF things were to go horribly wrong then She would jump into a warp pad and head to the Kindergarten where her last remaining ship would be heading as well, if she had to escape. "We'll meet up by the warp pad BUT" she paused, taking a step forward "You'll need to guide me there, Since i do not know of this "Warp pad" location you speak off." She waved a couple of her drones to stand by her just in case if this gem had lied to her and it was a ambush. "So what will it be?"
The Smoky Quartz asked Then nodded for the reasonable condition
"...ahh.... sorry. Naturally. I thought you have mapped this little island already with these drones. The Warp Pad is not far away, behind the trees, the "forest" between two large rocks. Maybe our Empire planned to build a Spire here, like the Lunar Sea Spire in the middle of the ocean... but after installing this Warp Pad? Who knows? Maybe they dropped the idea, maybe the Rebellion came along... I think there is nothing on this little Island, just some large crystals. Ideal place to play hermit..."
The Assassin smiled
"I will wait you there. And don't worry, I didn't bring any humans with me... I am alone. You have drones."
With a little bow, the Quartz walked to the Warp pad and waited for the other Gem patiently

"Bastard is smart.." Obsidian clicked her tongue in the response of Morion, Obsidian had lied about her not-knowing there was a warp pad here but she didn't expect the warp pad to work, believing that it was broken, Obsidian had no choice but to make her way to the warp pad with her selected drones. Obsidian began to think what options are in her favor for this...assassin. She thought of having more assassins means they will take out any target she selects without a single strand of hair lost in the process. So far she has Sugar and her new "recruit" but picking up more wouldn't hurt her anyway.
It didn't take too long for Obsidian to reach her destination. After all, she knew the portal was but denied the fact that it worked since she came her via Homeworld ship. She stands near the warp pad, with six of her automatons. "I'm here, you can come out hiding now."
Melody: Hi! Yep, that is true
Dec 30, 2019 10:51:32 GMT
Melody: honestly the site is not very active, but I try to make sure that every new player is doing okay
Dec 30, 2019 10:52:55 GMT
Melody: so feel free to message me here or on the discord if Njrk (the owner) is not answering
Dec 30, 2019 10:53:30 GMT
Melody: Also, you have got a decent app Chatoyant. I don't think you will have problems with being accepted. I am only not sure about your weapon, in the show it was very op, Njrk will have to take a closer look
Dec 30, 2019 11:07:42 GMT
Melody: It might also be good to state if you made the art for your Aquamarine or not
Dec 30, 2019 11:09:33 GMT
Fulgurite: Always wonderful to see new users. The shoutbox is still somewhat in use but the more reliable chat is the discord channel. But either way, welcome to the site.
Dec 30, 2019 11:29:49 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Thank you! Yes, that's the thing I'm still unsure about as well. I tried looking into other tractor beam and levitation based abilities that have been approved on this site and modeled and tried to nerf mine based on those. Will have to see!
Dec 30, 2019 12:58:23 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Ah, and that's true. The art's mine, could go edit that into the app before I forget. x)
Dec 30, 2019 12:59:32 GMT
Melody: I think it is good. Njrk already said it in chatbox that he is pretty busy, but I will try to inform him on discord about your app
Dec 30, 2019 13:08:05 GMT
Melody: I have got an idea. Njrk in some threads suggests that abilities/weapons could have a cooldown. It could be a nice way to nerf your weapon, but not too much. For example, maybe after using it in 2 posts it will shut down on its own for one post?
Dec 30, 2019 13:15:38 GMT
Melody: it is just a suggestion, I really don't know what Njrk will say about it
Dec 30, 2019 13:16:43 GMT
Melody: time measures, weight and stuff like that are nice, but they don't always transfer well into the roleplay. Time is especially a tricky part, that is why we usually use posts instead
Dec 30, 2019 13:20:04 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: Understandable that people would be busy around this time of the year, I don't mind if I have to wait a little. A cooldown could be a good idea if it's deemed that the weapon could use a little more nerfing. I'll keep that in mind!
Dec 30, 2019 13:31:27 GMT
njrk97: Ill try and look at it tomorrow, but yeah the gem wand presents some issues, its sorta why i avoided the more modern gem tech on the site IE widespread Destablizers. Like they exist but since Pink is not Dead the Resource issues and tech focus of Era 2
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:37 GMT
njrk97: has not become that prevalent.
Dec 31, 2019 1:08:54 GMT
Chatoyant Aquamarine: I'll try to make some adjustments beforehand. I’ll let the original description stay as it is so you can read it but I’ll send some notes to you so that you don’t have to start from a scratch.
Dec 31, 2019 4:25:34 GMT
Flurry: I knew that was coming

This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
Orginal Opening Plot Here Thread That Changed Everything
Differances Between the Roleplay and the Show
*Thanks to Rose Quartz' message the Gems on Earth are entirely aware that the Homeworld Gems intend to wipe out the human race.
*The "corruption" is being treated like a virus due to lack of info about it on the show.
*Garnet, Pearl and Rose are assumed capture on Homeworld
*Garnet,Pearl and Rose broke the space warps to delay Homeworld
*Thanks to Roses Message gems now know what the Kindergarten was used for
