"There are some, that thinks that the rebellion is over now, when Pink Diamond arrived to the moon... but if you are not careful they might be right about that."
He warned her for one last time. He wasn't sure if he wasn't lying in one thing though... wasn't he a loyalist? He thought he was some time ago... but he wasn't so sure right now. And it was probably thanks to Flurry. Morion was calling her his girlfriend... but there was nothing like that among gems... he shook his head wildly, this was not time nor the place to be thinking about that...
"It shows... but you became quite the smith..."
He tried the shield... it was really really light... he hoped it will be able to block some of the crazier corrupted gems he was fighting... "Thank you very much... protecting is my job... and now I have something that will protect me while I'm protecting."

She glossed over the comment about the rebellion possibly already being over, "Why thank you, I believe my skills only grow better with each creation. Practice does make perfect!" Her eyes looked Chip up and down, examining him with his new shield. Satisfied it looked the part she nodded, "I do hope it serves you well. While I am sure it is pure perfection, if you find it does not fit the job feel free to come back for a modification or even a brand new design." With the job finished Para started cleaning up the tools, making short work of the mess made from all her models and molds. Without looking up she said, "I hope you will be around when the war gets bad... we will need every gem we can find. After all, we need to prove this war didn't end years ago." She gave a halfhearted chuckle that sounded more worried than anything, "But enough of that gloomy business, I'm sure you're dying to go try your new toy out!"

"This seems pretty damn perfect to me... could you try to attack me? I really want to try it out... and searching for a corrupted gems could take hours..."
He asked. Not to mention he would rather test it against opponent who won't bit his head off if the shield fails for some reason.
"And don't worry, if the war ever came I am fairly sure I will be there..."
Only question was on what side... Chip wished he knew that. He didn't want to be a soldier fighting this war... when did that change? He wasn't even sure... felt like such so long time ago... have he really changed so much? Almost seemed so... he was slowly changing since he met Morion...

Para couldn't help but chuckle, "Me? Attack you? I am sorry but I'm not exactly capable of combat. However... I do have something that could serve as an excellent test." She moved across the room and grabbed an odd device from a locker, it resembled an elongated 'X' about as a meter long. Carrying it in both arms she walked over to a slot in the floor, "Come here, we will give your shield a proper workout!" Once he was near her she plunged the device into the slot and turned it, having some trouble doing so as the slot resisted her efforts. Once it moved Para removed the key mechanism and tried her best to keep her balance as the floor began sliding downwards.
The heat became more intense as the room they had been in disappeared from view, leaving them in darkness for a few moments until it finally entered the room below the anvil. The floor here was split into various parts, leaving streams of magma between the spaces. It looked as if gaps in the walls were able to form sort of mold about the size of a quartz, but they hadn't come for target practice. "Now, allow me~" She pressed a pressure plate on the floor and then swiftly moved to one of the side platforms, "Prepare yourself! Any time you wish to stop simply let me know." Not a moment after she finished speaking mechanical arms moved down from the ceiling, each one seemed to have a hammer tool attached to the ends of them. In total there were three, each coming from different corners equally spaced out from one another. After they lowered to Chip's level the attack begun, each arm taking turns in striking at him with their weapons.

It seemed, that Para wasn't exactly a combat oriented gems but she had a plan. He thought that she was a powerful gem who could take care about herself, it was the only reason to left the door opened... but she admitted she wasn't much of a fighter, he could take her out easily if he wanted... fortunately for her he didn't want to hurt anyone...
She lowered them to some kind of training room. It seemed quite elaborate, some kind of mechanism was controlling several arms, that started attacking him. He had to get something like this...
It wasn't that difficult, Chip was quick and nimble fighter, he could easily dodge and block the attacks. The important part was, that the shield was light and small enough that it wasn't slowing him down. He summoned a lance, using it to block too. It was a little difficult to use both his lance and shield... that will require some further training... "This is fun... could it work faster? And stronger? With more arms?"
Post by Forge Master Para on Mar 2, 2017 21:24:57 GMT
She was beaming with pride, not so much for Chip's abilities but for success of her shield more than anything. She spent the time analyzing Chip's fighting style, making sure the shield fit his needs. As far as she could tell it was a perfect fit, just as she had figured. After all, she was rarely wrong about this things.
Upon the request to increase the difficulty she couldn't help but laugh, "Oh yes it can! I have yet to test this on anyone, I'm glad to... how to humans put it? Hit two birds with a single stone? Something like that..." She hit a plate on the side, causing the arms to stop where they were. With them halted she stepped back on the main platform and hit the pressure plate again, three more arms came down and filled in the directions previously left open. Para hopped off just as the six of them went on the attack, faster than before.

Fortunately for Chip that crazy arm training thing could work even faster. And there were more of them. Suddenly it was much more interesting. Chip was quite agile but fighting 6 arms at once was a challenge. Before realising it Chip was flying in the air, using his wings to give him the edge he needed to stay ahead of those arms. But without the shield it would probably not be enough. But using both his lance and shield along with his wings he was really really hard to hit. This kind of exercise was really thrilling, he was just flying around, blocking and dodging, dropping suddenly to ground only to gain the altitude again, confusing the arms. "This is a blast... I love it..."

Content with her shield's performance with Chip Para hit the side-plate again causing the sparring arms to halt and slowly retract back into the ceiling. She stepped back onto the middle platform, "Alright, I believe we have found the shield is working as intended. I am glad to see it work so well, and of course to see that you enjoy it. But I'm afraid I am a busy gem, shall we return to the surface?" She picked up the key device and waited for Chip to join her, "Anytime you wish to come back and use the training room again you are more than welcome. I intend on upgrading the systems to incorporate some different styles, as well as new weapons. Should be fun~"

"Oh don't be silly Chip! This is what I exist for, work like this gives me purpose. I am more than happy to assist with anything in future, it is simply unfortunate timing. I have to complete a bit of a field mission, and time is of the essence. I am glad to hear you are just as happy with the shield as I am however." Once they had reached the surface Para walked Chip to the door, "Empire City, hmm? I will remember that. Thank you my dear, it is a pleasure to have met you and I look forward to any future meetings. And remember, if you ever require something of me simply come her and ask. More often than not I can be found here, toiling away~"

Para lead him to the entrance to the Forge, perhaps she was just polite, or perhaps she wanted to be sure, that Chip leaves... it wasn't that important anyway.
"If there is some problem or I need something else I will come, but I believe this shield should serve me well. I will be able to protect a lot of gems and humans with it. You are really talented you know... but you should really be more careful. Remember what I said to you... there are plenty of gems who would kidnap you for your talent... "
He warned her again. "Then again if you get kidnapped I will get you back, somehow..."
He smiled, then spread his wings...
"Good luck and thanks... I have a feeling we will meet again..."
Flurry: Such as...me! Cant have too many threads

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
