One late evening around Beach City, Octavian had decided to go on a little bit of exploration on his own. Telling Hunter, his housemate for the time being at least, that he was going to go scout around for potential allies or anything that would help the two gems, he stumbled across a massive shipwreck in the forest that...well, had wiped out a good amount of the forest in general. Having heard little to nothing about it, except that there were rumors of figures, almost robotic-like in appearance around the place, Bloodstone decided to check it out. As he moved up to the massive hunk of metal, he took two of his chains out and made his way inside, unsure and unafraid (for the time being) of whatever it was that would lie inside

One of Obsidian prized values was lost in the conflict between her and Mr. O lackies, even though she suffered a massive blow to her resources, she managed to take her prize from a reliable source. A "Assassin" if you will. Obsidian considers going back to Beach City will mean her death but it doesn't mean she could send her Automaton's to check if she can scavenge possible data from her computers or parts that she can hire gems to retrieve once again, as usual Obsidian rather play safe than sorry. A swarm of Automaton's, each different variant in total, entered the massive hull from the other side, not seeing the intruder from it's camera from the massive fallen parts blocking the view or from it's scanner.
Octavian hummed to himself as he explored the inside of the ship, noticing just how much of a wreck it is on the inside. Although once he heard some distinct clinks and whatnot that didn't sound like falling metal or...well, whatever a shipwreck like this was supposed to sound like, he got curious. "Let's see that's one, two, three..." The Bloodstone eventually realized the odds were against him. There were either going to be two probably options in his mind, either try to escape without being seen or fight off the apparent group of robots. "Might as well try..." He sighed as he grabbed his chains and started climbing along the ceiling before accidentally losing his grip and falling right into the middle of the automatons...go figure "Crud...."

The automatons weren't aware of the gem's stalking them from afar, until they managed to pick her up from the radar and well... she fell right in front of them, without a second to waste, the automatons weapon's sprung into life, shocking Bloodstone with mass amounts of energy that these little balls could carry. One of the automatons had a drill installed to it's bodyframe, spinning it to life, the drill automaton drilled itself toward Bloodstone, the objective for these Automaton programming was to hopefully poof or shatter the gem at capture, either one of the possibilties was good enough for Obsidian. With the mass amounts of electricity and a painful drill from the other automaton, it would be a test too see if this.. "Bloodstone" would handle these bots or transform at will.
Octi's eyes widened in shock, both metaphorically and literally as the electricity coursed through his body. Bloodstone had to tap into his berserker mode just to avoid poofing as he cried out, grabbing the automaton that had the drill with one of his chains and slamming it into the wall, using the extra strength to take care of it. He turned his attention to the other one and delivered a super kick to the head, attempting to knock it out as he winced. The electricity had caused a lot of pain but he was a tough gem. In all fairness it wasn't the worse thing they've ever fought. The main question on his mind was where the automatons were coming from, and who made them.

The last remaining of the automaton team recorded the small fight that had occurred between his fellow robots and the gem. "Interesting..." said Obsidian, who was at her ship, watching and receiving all possible data from this encounter. "So it is true, a gem that can simply grow strong within a fraction of a second." She tapped the desk with her index finger, contemplating what her next move should be. Like a chess player on earth, she begins to weight her options and decide if she would either play smart and make the last remaining automaton retreat back to her ship or, play aggressively.
Obsidian was always the one to favor aggressive plays, besides the last remaining automaton was her trusty automaton, the first one she had ever make in her entire career, not only that Automaton had survived dangerous situations but managed to fend off some enemies at the same time, Like a caring mother, Obsidian would always constantly work on her first automaton to make sure it works functionally and protected.
The last automaton engaged in it's battle mode, The Automaton shot short bursts of electrical discharge at the intruder, while swaying it's round body, giving an impression as if the last one were taunting the gem. The Automaton keeps shooting short discharges at the gem while moving side to side, in reality it's anticipating the enemy next move.
The extra pain had made Octi's berserker mode short out (Pun slightly intended) as he knocked the first two automatons out. He could normally resist a good amount of damage but the electricity and drill was getting too much for him. As he felt the discharges landing against his body, Bloodstone slowly got more angry at the Automaton. "Hold still you!" He started swinging his chains wildly but found himself missing, as if his anger was impeding his aim. Octi was trying his fists and chains at the same time soon but slowly grew tired as the fight wore on. After roughly 10 to 15 minutes Octavian was running out of stamina, it was obvious as his attacks grew more and more desperate and the discharges had just kept coming. "NNhh...I can't believe it.." Bloodstone said before collapsing on the ground and breathing hard before poofing into his gem, the battle having been too much for him and he actually needed to poof and rest, for once.

Seeing that the gem poofed itself into it's gem, the automaton floated closely to the gem, projecting a energy field around it (to carry it around). As the Automaton floated back upwards so did the gem, now being "carried" by the automaton, it received new orders from Obsidian herself to bring back the gem to her ship. The Automaton floated away with the gem to where Obsidian ship was hiding at.
"I guess it's time to call a "friend" about certain good news." she said to herself, grinning madly as she captured this "dangerous" gem with her prized Automaton. She got up and headed to her console, activating it.
"This is Obsidian, Elite Scientist of Homeworld contacting to Morion." she flashed a devils grin to the screen.
Bloodstone winced as he poofed into his gem. He hadn't been inside his gem in an extremely long time so the sensation was somewhat new to him, in a sense. "I can't believe I just got beaten by a stupid robot!" Octi yelled as he sighed, holding his chest "Gods this hurts...I don't think I was made to withstand electricity like that. Feels like the gem destabilizers." Octavian laid down in his own little bubble. Hopefully he wasn't going to be shattered or anything like that. He wanted to get out as soon as possible and knock the living tar out of whoever was behind this. He didn't like losing fights like this..mainly cause he rarely lost period.
The Smoky Quartz looked at the communicator Lady Obsidian gave him
"I am here Lady Obsidian..."
Morion was a bit concerned Obsidian was his ally, but she was a bit... ...well... ...but she was Loyal.
"It is always a pleasure to speak with you M'lady! What can I do for you? I was attacked not long ago and I am afraid you are maybe a target too... the insane Experiment, Yellow Peridot and the Blue Zoisite, Hunter, the Betrayer attacked my mansion..."
The Smoky Quartz voice was a bit morose
"We have enough problem with the Crystal Gems and the Monsters and now so-called-Loyalist attacking Loyal Gems... So be prepared Lady Obsidian. Yellow Peridot have a ship and Hunter raided a Human base or two for weapons so I've heard..."
Post by The Scientist, Obsidian on Sept 15, 2016 16:51:49 GMT
Obsidian was taken back "You didn't tell anything about me?" she asked, wondering if already her newfound partner might be already useless as a pearl. "A ship and a human base taken over...These two could be dangerous if not taken care off... i'll have my "associates" take care of them." she reassured him. Obsidian still had Sugar and now, Dolomite on her side, if she could possibly convert this Bloodstone to her side or shatter her, it would be one less of a problem to handle. An idea popped in her head "Do you by any chance have recordings of the attack of Yellow Peridot and the hunter?" If Morion could provide battle data, it would be most helpful to counter-attack them.
Obsidian wasn't the one to favor pure strength to win a battle, nevertheless it never stopped her from getting into a competition of strength either, she was just lucky enough to survive half of those battles, the other half was just her smart thinking that helped her the most. "I've captured the Bloodstone, the one that can shift it's power back and forth in an instant." she proclaimed. "My Automaton will bring it to my ship, You are expected to come along. After all, I do need help from a upcoming scientist." she honeyed the words to her favor.
Meanwhile the automaton continued it's journey to Obsidian ship, following it's programmed route to it's destination.
"Hunter and Yellow Peridot are aware of the fact you are my associate Lady Obsidan and you have data and information, the results of my researches. Not to mention your ship and drones. While my humans evacuated my base, they are humans. So it is wise to assume our enemies raided my computers. Lets assume the worst."
The Smoky Quartz shook his head
"I don't have the recordings. But when Yellow Peridot attacked Hunter and bloodstone at the Kindergarten my Humans recorded that fight. Not much but I will send it over"
Then the Assassin slowly nodded
"I see... so you have captured Bloodstone. I can't join you at the moment Lady Obsdian, it is important to secure my rule over Empire City. And if may I suggest M'Lady... set Bloodstone free! Let me explain! Bloodstone is a powerful Gem! A Berserker Quartz Knight! With the nasty habit to convince Gems about Independence... only the Diamonds know how many independent allies Bloodstone have! But even if he is alone, he is a power house, I saw him fight, and he is way more powerful than Demetry... the Owyhee Jasper of Lady Musgravite, and Demetry was an Experiment too! Wining Bloodstone alligance is a must in this war! Loosing it would be a great blow! He is an Independent for now... but this might change! I promised him several thing, made Oaths... and at the moment he is starting to see the error of his ways. While it would be.... scientifically beneficial to study him, to understand the Experiment that made him, we need to face the fact, the Kindergartens are offline without the hope to reactivate them. They are beyond repairs I'm afraid. So we can't replicate the method that made Bloodstone. Our data would be useless waste of space. BUT a Bloodstone who follows us from his own free will, that would be a huge boon! As I said, he is strong. And he potentially could win us some allies too. And at the moment these are the important thing, not some cold, useless data Lady Obsidian. You could always study him later... Think about this! Talk with him, lie something if you want, explain him this was all a mistake, and you mean him no harm..."
Morion suggested "Now, I have to go.. have some work to do"

"WHAT!" She slammed the fist on the console, nearly breaking it to peaces, NOW she had to rely on her assassins and drones to fend off the possibly onslaught of raids from those two, she was not willing to give up all the resources this island had just because two special snowflakes know where her whereabouts is....She.. She can use this to her advantage somehow. She'll have to think of a plan for such an occasion after she has dealt with Bloodstone.
"Tch..." Obsidian hissed "Good bye for now, Morion." Obsidian turned off the console after he said his farewells, turning her direction back to the table once again, the automaton already nearing it's destination, Obsidian quickly to changed the automaton destination instead of arriving inside of the ship, it was set to arrive at the shores of the island, where it would take mere minutes for Obsidian to reach before the automaton would. Normally she wouldn't care what Morion would say but, since he is a valuable asset to some degree, it would be best for her to heed his warnings.
She finally arrived at the shore, waiting for the automaton to meet her with the Bloodstone gem in captive.
Bloodstone winced as he tried to reform. Admittedly the time he had spent within his gem was good and he was feeling healthy enough to at least move around with no major issues. "I need to figure out a way to do this..I still can't believe i was taken out like that." Octavian had been trying to think as to how he had been taken out of his berserker mode that quickly. It may have been due to the electricity or the drills that he had been hit by. He started trying to come out of his poofed state, eager to see just who it was that had ordered the robots to attack him in the first place. "This'll be interesting.."

The automaton finally reached it's destination, meeting up with Obsidian at the island shore. "Release" Obsidian said, commanding the automaton releasing the captured gem in front of Obsidian, she had a nonchalant look, simply looking at the gem, not caring if Bloodstone was still angry from being attacked but nevertheless still hoped she wasn't.
She had to heed Morion words even though she didn't listen to gems who are lower ranking to her but Morion had some valid points (beside calling data useless...). Morion did state that this gem is still in the middle, not siding with Homeworld nor the rebels here on Earth, Obsidian is a cunning person after all, she did managed to stay alive all this time as "The Mad Scientist".
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
