The sun rose slowly in the early hours of the warm sunday morning. The outer rim of the Beach City shore began to illuminate as the shadows of the previous night were begining to be washed away by the impending rays of sunlight.
A soft groan echoed throughout the area as the sudden light had proved to be a rude awakening for a lone body laying against the sandy shore. Her bright, green toned skin seemed to be engulfed in sand. Her dark emerald hair was ruffled and suffering from an extreme case of bed head. Her eyes, although hidden by a light crystal visor, were noticeably screaming out in annoyance. The ruffled mess that rested on the shore was known as Jade.
She was a Homeworld Gem, a diplomatic advisor to the Diamond Hierarchy...Or, at least she was. Currently she was an "Offworld Ambassador," which was the nice way of saying that she was unofficially banished. She had ventured the cosmos for what seemed like an eternity, but had just recently struck down on to the big blue marble known as Earth, after she was forced into its gravitational pull.
After crash landing into the ocean, she had made her way onto the beach, where she had spent the next few hours taking in the scenery and examining her current predicament. She prayed that a homeworld vessel would eventually pick up on her past distress calls, and valiantly rescue her. But this seemed unlikely. For now, she just layed against the sand, thinking about what in the Diamonds names she did to deserve this.
Jeremy was the tired. Very tired. He had tried to stay upbeat for a while, but he missed home. He missed his old assignments. He missed a lot of things that Earth simply didn't have. The Jeremejevite was shuffling along the beach, too depressed to notice the spectacular light show that was the changing of night to day. He sighed, kicking a stick with his boot. Then he heard a small sound. Jeremy gulped, summoning his scepter and walking carefully towards the source of the noise, his knees knocking. Then he saw her. A green figure buried in sand, her bright emerald hair messy. A Gem! "Umm, hello!" Jeremy called tentatively. "Are you alright, miss?" He kept his scepter in his hands. She looked like a Homeworld Gem, but one can never be too careful...
With the low hum of the rotor, a huge black helicopter aproached the forsaken beach Actually, first it circled around the spot, where the ship crashed, just after that it's pilot turned to the beach, where the human flying machine landed, not far from Jeremy (giving him enough time to hide among the rocks^^) On the side of the big black helicopter there was a golden M The door opened and two humans jumped out, heavily built thugs with weapons, and a smaller, lean human After them a Gem stepped out from the aircraft
"This is the spot Senor M. They saw the "comet" somewhere here... it was crashed in to the ocean. I have told the boys, bring their swimsuit" "Thank you my Pearl..."
The Smoky Quartz was in his humanoid form, his voice was dark and cold 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. His cold, silver eyes watched the little city, Beach City in the distance The silhouette of the Crystal Temple They were close to the Rebel's home base... but according to Bloodstone, it was safe to come here But the helicopter was ready to take off, fly home to Empire City And a possible Gem ship was something that worth the risk, coming here... Two other humans started to suit up in a diving suit, then swum in to the ocean, while his "Pearl" (the lean human lad) and the thugs set up the sunshade, a little table, and a wicker chair in its shadow
"Secure the area my dear Pearl... I don't want any surprises!" "Si senor M"
The human opened a cold bottled and poured some amber colored liquid in to a glass, and gave it to his master who sat down in his chair and leaned back, sipped from the drink
Someone fell onto the sand near them, they had apparently been watching from atop a hill. It was a female gem with purple skin. She had dark purple, curly hair. Her eyes were a brighter shade of purple, almost pink. She was dressed in a darker purple, almost black shirt and skirt. They revealed her stomach in a diamond-like shape. She also had a few wristbands with white diamonds on them. On closer examination she was wearing a necklace with a white diamond pendant. Her eyes were wide, knowing she had been discovered. She stood and got in a sort of defensive pose. "Hey! I Don't mean any harm and all that jazz!" She said. "Do you know the way to the nearest diamond base?"
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
