But the mansion wasn't in the city It was a (huge) private property in the edge of the suburb Surrounded by stone walls, the whole area was separated from the rest. The Mansion's heavy, ornamental double iron gate opened before the little Gem
The tight security (the usual thugs in shades and suits, headsets, with chained dogs, patroled in pairs) was still there, as two of them accompanied the scout to the doors, Hunter could see the not-so-hidden cameras^^ It was a mansion, a "home"... but a fortress too at same time
The guards were armed... the Gem could recognize some of them from the Kindergarten... and their weapons. The ones that sent Yellow Peridot and Bloodstone back in to their Gems in a very... very unpleasant and painful way The humans recognized him too... but the columbian and Jamaican thugs said nothing Just led the Gem to the doors, from where a buttler accompanied Hunter upstairs, to his master The Smoky Quartz was in one of the living rooms
So, now he was there, siting behind a harpsichord, playing

Hunter didn't like having to go to Morion for help, but the only alternative was to steal what he wanted. He didn't like the idea of stealing stuff. He followed the guards into the mansion then followed the butler into the room where Morion was. As he walked inside he notices the half naked gem playing some music. Hunter stayed quiet as the piece that Morion was playing was actually really nice. Once Morion finished thats when he spoke up. "Morion. I have a favor to ask of you. I am needing assistance on obtaining various parts to my ship. They fell below the floating temple when i crash landed on this planet. I do not want to have that favor be an empty gesture so what is it that you want in return?"
The Smoky Quartz looked at his gueast, with a smile
"Hunter... I am happy too, to see you my dear Court-mate!
The Assassin Gem's voice was warm, and merry
"Please, take a seat... any refreshment? Wine? Whisky? Any liqueur? Or do you prefer cola or some fruit juice?
He stood up, and walked to Hunter
"Hunter... you are from our Diamon's court! Don't be silly! Of course I will help you! No strings attached... I promise! Our little... cartel do have the resurces to help your quest! Several human Pearls, Rubies... just name it! How many humans do you need to search the area? Any Guard human Quartzes with weapons, to look after you, defend you and your team? Cars, trucks, gears... I am happy to help! This is the least I could do to another Gem...

Hunter shakes his head at the request for refreshments. "No no. im good thank you." He felt uneasy at how Morion would just Give him whatever he needed. "Um..I only need a helicopter and pilot. i dont really need much else as im just going to bubble the ship parts and send them back to the place im fixing my ship. I really dont feel right just taking your stuff without giving something back." He kept his distance from Morion as he was unsure of his intentions. "I do appreciate that your not being difficult with my request." He stands there awkwardly as he was unsure how to act in this situation. "May i ask why you are being so generous?"
"A helicopter and a pilot? Just these two things?"
The Smoky Quartz was a bit surprised
"You know... While I do understand your reasons, I think you are a bit wrong on this one. If may I suggest, reconsider my offer Hunter!"
The Assassin asked gently
"You are a scout, am I right? A Zoisite, a Blue one. I have seen several of your "kind". Violet, green, brown, pink, yellow, gray, even a colorless! You Zoisites are curious little Gems, a bit loners, like my Quartz-kind... Always traveling, always searching and reserching... The Zoisites are versatile Gems. Traveler, observers, artists, scouts... but always, somewhat lone wolfs. And a bit headstrongs."
"I have no doubts, you could find every little bit that scattered... evetually. But I honestly think, it would be quicker and easier if you would use a team. Coordinate them..."
"All I ask, to think about it Hunter
Morion sipped from his drink
"Why I am so generous? I am, on the contrary of popular beliefs, not a monster... Always worked from behind the shadows and in the darkness, alone... but always for my Diamond, and for my people, the Gems! Gem are famous for being powerful and ruthless beings that constantly sought to expand the boundaries of their dominion and the holdings of their Diamond! Some even dare to say, we are an immoral, nasty, domineering and power hungry species. But we are a proud people, generous with our own kind even if we are cruel sometimes with the lesser species..."

Hunter nods. "yes i only need those two things. You may not see the worth is perserving stuff but i do. and seeing as No one knows what lies below the floating temple. I dont want to risk it. My natural tallent is adapting to extreme enviroments so if the area below the temple is lethal to living and non living things then i would survive the longest down there due my natural talent."
Hunter blushes a bit when Morion discribed what Zoisites were mostly used for. "That may be true that im a scout for Blue Diamond. but that doesn't make me a lone wolf. I...actually felt lonely being out there."
He sighs. "I get what your saying about my ship could be anywhere. that would be an issue. If the Humans were already proving there intelegence. I used there Satellites to scan the planet for unique metalic signiture of my ship. though i found parts all over the world that are possibly not entirely just my ship. but a large cluster is near there Sky Temple which has to be a good amount if not all of my ship lying down there. Which is why i need a pilot and a helicopter. to get there as i have no clue how far down it goes."
He didn't know how to respond to Morion's Generous explanation. "um. Its awfuly nice of you and all. but i still feel back taking your generousity and giving nothing back."
"But I guess... you are right. There is no sense to waste a good human Pearl or Ruby. Even tho' I think there would be quite a few volunteers! Humans are curious... some of them are brave even!
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"Loneliness... is a strange and powerful enemy. Personally I love peace and solitude... but working as an Infiltrator, and observer... be the Eye of my Diamond, watching others, wearing faces and personalites...."
Moiron sipped from his glass with a sigh
"...not the easiest. I guess your job is equally demanding."
"A helicopter and a brave pilot then.... and if you really want to give something back, I supose you could tell me a little about yourself! Your nickname for example "Hunter". It is came form the fact, you are the hunter of planets? Ahh... Sorry, this was a bit dark toned expression... I didn't mean to offend you"

Hunter turns away from Morion. "To be honest i forgot why i chose the name. it just stuck with me. I was never good for the cut and facet thing. so a generalized name just fit better." He sighs. "So where will i meet this pilot? because i doubt the humans know of this place i need them get to." He looks back at Morion when he tells him where to meet the pilot. "Thank you for giving me what i need without demanding something. I...I will just take my leave now." He bows to Morion to show respect before opening the door and leaving. He walks outside and waits for his ride. Morion could catch up to him and continue talking to him as he waited.
"I will send the pilot to you... Bloodstone little shack is far away from the humans. Nobody will notice the black helicopter. The rest is up to you and the maps. But I am sure, you can navigate..."
Morion sipped from his glass
"Before you go Hunter... when Bloodstone was here last time, she got a bit... drunk. But "tipsy" is a bit more accurate... Anyhow, she told me, you want to preserv Earth. Earth's beauty..."
The Assassin sighed
"Like me. You know, I love nature too. And I do belive... that is not that unimaginable. You see, We are stranded here... but currently every Gem for it self. The curse of the Rebellion. But Gems are... social. I think this is the right word. We are beings of Order. We need hierarchy, orders. The whole caste-system. I honestly belive, the whole Rebellion, the Crystal Gem movement is the source of Earth every problem, and the reason of its eventual destruction. But... there is a way to avoid this. We need a Court. Let me explain! Please... just... hear me out!"
"Currently, the highest ranking Gem on Earth is Her Majesty's, White Diamond's Grand Inquisitor, his excellency, the exalted Opalite. He is the de facto Governor of Earth. Or he should be the one. Every Gem shuld bow before His Eminence, and should help him to secure the planet... not waging little wars over meaningless things! We should be one Race! The stranded Gems under his rule... every Loyal Gem. And Crystal Gems who realized their folly. Together we could defeat the Rebels, secure Earth... and with it, its preservation. We need the planet's resources... the Kindergartens and new Gems and all. But at the same time, some of Earth's beauty could be preserved! In large Bio-domes, forest, mountains, seas ... with their eco-systems. Like the Humans and their culture in Human-reserves. I know it is not the thing you immagine. But... the next best thing. Earth's only hope to "survive" in some form. That psychopath Yellow Diamond and her warmonger brutes just looking for an excuse to stripmine the planet... but a secured planet could have a hope! Please... just... just think about it. Okay?

Hunter stopped and listened to Morion talk. "yes i would like to preserve earth. but want to do it in a way that i can show the diamonds that perserving worlds with natural life could be a more intresting venture than to just...kill the planet. I mean there are TONS of dead worlds i have visted. several that use to have life. i....I just dont want to ruin lives to lesser being all because they are under developed. Yes Humanity is slowly destroying themselves. but our intrusion is only going to speed that up if we dont stop and consider doing things that would benifit both sides. The Crystal Gems see potential in humanity. but i see potential in a symbiotic relationship with them...and there world." He walks over to the car and gets in not waiting for an answer. "Driver take me home."
The Smoky Quartz sighed But that was it He let Hunter go
"Awww... you see? He is just like Demetry..."
The Voice in his head gigled Morion tired to ignore it... but it was true Painfuly true
"Blue Zoisite will be always your enemy... crazy, foolish ideas, and dreams... he is a cute little potential Crystal Gem. Thus your enemy. Eventually you will have to kill him" Shut up! - Morion growled in his toughts "Why so angry...? I mean why so angry with Me??? HE is the one who is a traitor! Shut up! Eventually he will... he will see the error of his ways. This is just a phase! He is lost and alone, afraid... this is an alien planet. He is just confused... Everything will be all right! "Whatever let you sleep at night dear... wahaever let you sleep..."
The Voice in his head giggled The Smoky Quartz watched Hunter as he left The heavy gates closed behind the Blue Zoisite... the car took him home
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.

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
