Bumble turned back, in something akin to surprise to hear Turquoise speak. She knelt down in a squat and whispered a plan into the blue gem's sound detection areas. Keeping her tone hushed, he whispered. "There there. Moping will get you nowhere on your way home. I say that we try to find a working comm system or a ship with one, so we can tell Homeworld what's going on. If you can't think of any better plans to go home, I'll go on my own. I can handle that. But, if you do have a plan, then tell me because I'm pretty sure the quicker we leave, the better chance we have of finding a hub, a smaller comms system, or a ship that can make it to the base on the moon and back in working condition. Now, are you in or what?" She scooted backward before awaiting Turquoise's answer. The stars still glimmered in perfect sychronization with the half moon that shone brightly in the sky, where it seemed to be beckoning all living things to be among them.

"Hey hey, its okay. I'm pretty sure a lot of gems are facing some pretty unorthodox challenges right now, so you don't need to think you failed your Diamond.. er.. look, plenty of these warp pads are still up, just leading to planetary sites, but thats better than nothing. Looks to me like this Jasper here is willing to help if youll let her."
She holds out a hand to the Turqoise where she sits to help her up if she wants the gesture. Being on this wave swept island was kinda depressing, hardly good for anyone's moralle, let alone a gem in Turqoise's position.
"You can always try again or try some thing different... your core is whole and undamaged, and youre not corrupted, so youre not out of options, even if it feels pretty bad at the moment, am I right? C mon."
Suddenly, a new gem warped in. He was as big and bulky as any perfect Quartz. He wore a khaki colered trench coat and fedora. He stepped off the the warp pad and approached the broken mosiac. "Greetings! I am Flint, but some of the primitive lifeforms call me 'Rocky'. I am here to investigate the primary reasons why Homeworld has lost connection to Earth. I will need your full cooperation for the evidence we have here." He looked at Turquoise who was crying. He pitied her. "Hey. What happened here? Why are you upset?" He calmly asked Turquoise as he kneels over and gently puts one hand on her shoulder, trying to comfort her. He looked for any wounds, but he only found emotional wounds.
Bumble stood tall and saluted, her arms forming a rigid diamond around the one emblazoned on her chest. She was now turned towards Flint as she barked out "Bumble Bee Jasper; Cut 28YS, Facet 5TV" before relaxing her position a bit. In the back of her mind, she decided that regardless of wether or not the Turquoise would be accompanying her or not, she'd take her lave to search for working comms. Her gaze wandered to the moon as she tried to spot the large base there. If she squinted, she could see a tiny sliver of the massive tower elegantly placed upon the rocky silver disk. She brought her line of sight back down to earth before deciding to voice a bit of her plans. "I'll be looking for some working comms to see if anybody's on the moon base. If anyone wants to come, I say they should voice their concerns before I leave."
Her footsteps echoed slightly as she trod towards the warp she knew to be near a large communication hub in a desert. She slowed a bit so that any gem who desired to tag along could warp with her if the so chose. She stopped when she had one foot on the glassy pad and turned her head to look at the others "Last call for anybody who wants to come"
Seeing as nobody had paid attention to her last call, she walked around to the back of the pad and put one foot on it. It began to glow with a power blue light, the light shining steadily. She shifted her gaze specifically to Turquoise and -her voice loosing its harshness from earlier- said to the blue gem "I'll try to find a way home Turquoise. Look for comm signals. Flint, and you there" she gestured to the other gem "I hope you can help her."
With that being said, she put her other foot on the warp's smooth surface and the blue light around her swirled upward in a glowing whitish-blue column. The tunnel of light dissipated after reaching a meter or two in the sky, with the glow of the pad now returning to a dim glow, and finally none at all.
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
