The Great North Far from the cities... the frozen, cold top of the world
Snow, ice, wind... Green pine trees formed emerald islands in the endless white ocean of the snow, surrounded by mountains Its primal beauty was never spoiled by a Human But the Gems were here too... Behind the Warp Pas rested a half snow covered wailing stone
(Sorry, can't find a pic without Pearl and the gang... >.< )
It was majestic Serene Just the wind among the trees, the eternal grasp of the winter on the land Then the smoky Quartz landed in the snow, after broke through several trunks, before a large ice crystal stopped him "...this will hurt in the morning..."
The Assassin grumbled, then a large shadow covered him
He was fast, avoided the clawed paw of the windigo Gem Monster, that tried to grab him A jump, another... the Quartz landed on the back of the corrupted beast, grabbing its mane The monster howled and like a wild horse tried to throw him down, like a gorilla, started to run on four, tried to loose the other Gem
Bloodstone had decided to take a bit of a side trip, exploring some of Earth while he had the chance. As he made his way through one of the mountains, he couldn't help but hear the sound of some sort of commotion going on. Octavian whipped out four of his chains and ran towards the source of the noise, eventually seeing Morion trying to fight a Gem Monster that appeared to be similar to a wendigo that he had seen when looking over human mythology. "Hang on Morion, I'm coming!" Octi ran over and pulled Morion off with his chains quickly, setting him down in the snow before slamming the monster to the ground with his shoulder, picking it up and tossing it into one of the trees
The chains came out of nowhere, and was quite the surprise
"What are you doing here?!"
The Smoky Quartz wasn't angry tho', it was always good to see Bloodstone in action! And on his side^^ The Assassin jumped, summone his scimitar and attacked te monster too Quickly, the monster was defeated... Bloodstone was a power house, even without the Berserker mode of his turned on With a last, mighty roar, the Gem monster poofed, and the white...ish gem landed in the snow Morion looked to Bloodstone Race to it? Or no need to fight over a poofed corrupted monster's Gem?^^
"It is nice to see you my dear Bloodstone..."
Tho' the Assassin inched closer and closer to the defeated Gem^^
"Let's just call it a convenience that I'm here in the first place" Bloodstone chuckled, it really was the truth. He didn't expect to see Morion up this far from Empire City at all..then again he didn't expect himself to be up this far either. "It's nice to see you as well Morion" Octi gave off a smile and noticed the Assassin was getting closer to the monster's gem. Using one of the chains he still had out, Bloodstone wrapped it around the gem and grabbed it, holding onto it as he laughed softly "Now tell me, and if you don't mind me asking, what could you possibly want with a defeated gem like this? Any particular plans I should know about or..is it something else?"
The Smoky Quartz watched the corrupted Gem's gemstone, as Bloodstone "stole" it with his chains He dismissed his mask, and smiled
"You know my dear Bloodstone, I don't have any secreats before you!"
Morion smileds with a warm smile "I am here becasue my Human Peridots calculated the landing... crashin of a space debris, or meteorite... but it is quite possible, this space "gift' is from Fusion Gaspeite's exploded ship. I came here to investigate and gather the possible Gem techonology... To be honest, I was expecting some corrupted Gem Monster's interfrence"
The Assassin admited "As you know, the Fusion Gaspeite's mission was to gather corrupted Gem monsters and deliver them to Pink Diamond. So it was possible, some of them survived the accident, entered the atmosphere and landed on Earth. Anyhow capturing, hunting Gem monsters is a useful pastime! They are dangerous... to us and to our Humans. But now, capturing speciments, collecting them for the Fusion Gaspeite is somewhat our duty too! Maybe she crashlanded and lost her ship, but her mission isn't over, nobody cenceled it. I sure she wants to fulfill her mission, and please her Diamond! Its a honor to help her in that..."
"Fair enough.." Bloodstone sighed and nodded, tossing the gem over to Morion "Here, you can have it. Make sure that Gaspeite gets it without any trouble." Octavian put all of his chains up and sighed, stretching. "That's the first time I've fought a gem monster like that in a long time." He walked over to Morion and smiled back "Glad to see you're safe though. I'll admit that even if I don't always see eye to eye with you..I wouldn't want to lose you to some monster like that." Octi chuckled softly and smiled "So, what might be the quickest way to get back to town? Because I get the feeling you don't want to stay out here any longer than I do"
"You know... you sould give it to her. It would be a good point. Eventually the Diamonds arrive, or a rescue ship... Pink Diamond I think wants back her Fusion experiment... not to mention the speciments. Sooo... the Fusion Gaspeite will need to do a report. And in that report, your help would look pretty good!"
Morion shook his head
"I... I don't want to loose you neither my dear Bloodstone."
The Assassin looked the mountains, the snow, the forests
"Actually... I love this peacful scenery. And the City is in my Apprentice's hands... I think. I hope..."
"I think the fastes would be the Warp Pad, not so far from here...
"Alright...that sounds like a plan, I don't mind doing that" Bloodstone nodded and smiled "I'll take that then" He took the gem back and smiled "It is pretty nice..wait a sec, your apprentice? When did you get an apprentice?" Octavian looked over at Morion, extremely confused now "I was not aware that you even offered apprenticeships in the first place" Bloodstone laughed and smiled, nodding "There is a Warp Pad close by, yes I remember now" He starts walking down with Morion and sighs "This place really isn't so bad..like I said, if it was not for the fact that there was the whole Gem invasion, Earth is a very good planet" Octi smiled "We can still try to save it"
The Smoky Quartz was a bit embarrassed But not that much
"I was in the wilds, a little road trip, patroling Empire City's surrounding area, when I saw a Gem monster. Te beast attacked a man-cub. You know I am not really tolerating other predators on my Domain! I saved the kid... who turned out to be a Gem. A Fire Opal! This Fire Opal... is a fugitive, so to speak. When he was formed, something happend, he is... chipped. And those insane Peridots tried to shatter him, instead of helping him, so he had to run and survive alone. Chip, that is his name, is a cool little kid. He is learning under my wing
Morion explained "Actually... he is one of my lieutenant in our organization. Young trustwothy, a bit pacifist, ut strong illed, survivor type, full of potential... and when Pink Diamond arrives, or her expedition, Chip can go home, where a Healer Gem could fix his Gem"
The story in short^^
"Yes, Earth could have been a nice vacation spot... but a Rebels... eh... what the use? You know the thing, and I am sure, you are fed up with my sermons"
Bloodstone nods, listening to the whole story. It was quite interesting, Chip sounded like a decent gem. "I see..that's good. I think he sounds like he could use the experience underneath your wing" Octavian chuckled and smiled. "And it's alright, you don't have to explain." He sighed and gave a little boop to Morion as they walked "So, since we have the time to walk, I might as well ask, what exactly did you tell Morganite? Because quite frankly I just want to get all of the details at this point." Bloodstone sighed, not sure what to do as they kept going "She's gotten to be quite the ally back home..if nothing else she's very good at decorating" He laughed softly and smiled
"It is not his fault what happened with him... It is quite possible, it was an accident. An accident caused by the Crystal Gems, but we don't have any proof. Anyhow, I think with a healed Gem or without it, Fire Opal could be a decent knight, a guardian, bodyguard... possibly in Pink Diamond's Court, or in White Diamond's Elite... IF he don't screw up. Young Gem, and the data upload was incomplate in his case, tho' he is not a blank state. He had to run and hide from his own people... a real bad experience. But I hope I can "heal" this emotional damage and scars on his soul. I we can't? Well, his future is grim "
Morion nodded, returned the boop^^
"Morganite... it was really nothing! I offered to her to see a play, Swan Lake. Explained her the story. And from that, we ended up discussing emotions and love. I told her about Demetry, and you. And lamented a bit about your inability to remain loyal... I told her nothing but the truth Bloodstone! You are quite discursive you know!"
"I see..."" Bloodstone nods "You know it's quite possible he got chipped back on Homeworld, right? Not every single thing that goes against Homeworld is related to the Crystal Gems." That was admittedly the one thing Octi was still trying to get used to, it seemed like any and everything that looked against Homeworld was somehow linked to rebels..even though the odds of that were a bit unlikely "Either way, I do hope he can get fixed up..I could take him to the fountain, actually, I know a location where he could get healed." Octavian listened, sighing but not surprised "Yeah that's what she mentioned..of course she also mentioned..other things." He was nervous and didn't want to really talk about the fact that he was possibly insane
"No... sadly not. The kid is from Earth. Never used a Warp, or anything."
"So.. it is possible, when the Rebels started to sabotage the Kindergarten, Chip was their "victim", first casuality of the War..."
The smoky Quartz shook his head
"A location... where Gems could heal? Well now, my dear Bloodstone, this is quite interresting information...! You know, controlling such a location could end the War forever! But... If you don't trust me, you could find Chip in my skyscraper... and bring him to there, blindfolded"
"Other things? What things my dear Bloodstone? Maybe I scared her, I admit, she is a Kindergarten operator... a technician. And you know what was the fate of the loyal Healers, Builders and Technicians.... and she IS a Loyal Gem, remeber! She is in danger and I didn't hide this fact from her! But now I am curious... so tell me! What did that little cute pink Gem told you...?
Bloodstone sighed and nodded "I see...and it's also possible he simply just got hurt on his own" He shrugged and nodded as they kept going, getting nervous blushing "U-um, I don't know for sure. I just think I came across it by chance and...to be honest it's been awhile. I dunno." Octavian smiled and sighed "She said that you had insulted me, said "mean words" and..well, to be fair she did not say a whole lot. Morganite tends to get a bit frustrated and blends her words together when she gets anxious, nervous, that sort of thing" Bloodstone shook his head "She doesn't like you at all to say the least. Not until you can mend your image in front of her"
"Maybe... but lets honest here! Gems rarely emerges from their hole and hurt themselves... so much, the Peridots rather shatter it, then try to fix their mistake."
The smoky quartz watched Bloodstone
"You are nervous my dear Bloodstone... you don't trust me, do you? Don't worry, I understand..."
Morion looked away, to the mountains
"Mean words? Just these. Just the truth... I didn't know, you two know each other my dear Bloodstone! And she was a Loyal Gem in danger... it was logical to warn her about you. To scare her away from you... sou you won't get in truble! You are an Independent Gem, thus a Traitor... we can be honest each other! The other Loyals see you as a traitor... and I've done everything to protect you so far! From the others.. took responsibility for your possible actions, convinced them, the ones like Black Star Diopside or the Fusion... you are just a bit misguided, but you are not a danger or "real" traitor." And I had to tell this to Morganite too! About your inability to choose and stay loyal to your choices..."
The assassin smirked
"I don't really care, she likes me or not... or what she thinks of me. I am Loyal, she is Loyal, our feelings are irrelevant, we are both serving the Empire... And if she can't let her grudges go, and her feelings and oppinions are preventing her to do her job, then its her problem, how will she explain her behavior to her Diamond, not mine my dear!
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
