I've basically been interested in ancient history, primarily the history and religion of the ancient Middle East, and thus, due to studying this for several years as a lay person, I've managed to gather sufficient amount of inspiration as well as technical knowledge to be able to try and do one thing I've always dreamed of:
To develop the history, society, religion, culture etc. of an entirely original fictional world from scratch, including geography, urbanisation, onomastics, languages etc.
I've begun by drawing out a continent and then picking up a series of very basic words to randomly generate (I did so by looking at literal transcriptions of signs in cuneiform documents and randomly jumling these together) and then using these as a basis to develop not just one language, but several off shoot languages as well.
This I then used to simultaneously develop the religion, including a canon of legends that I am writing out in full, vocabulary etc. of the various emerging civilisations along with their history, marked out and kept track of via an excel spreadsheet. I've developed my own script consisting of 95 characters thus far, and a writing system that alternates between right and left every line.
All the relevant links to the various documents and images can be found here. Note I've also worked on murals/frescoes for the this, as much as I can given my limited artistic abilities, but haven't put those up yet.
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.
