Morion called his trusty friend, Bloodstone to the docs of Empire City The Smoky Quartz watched as the confiscated ship of that primitive simpleton Howlite in to a huge cargo ship
"Bloodstone! I'm gald you make it in time! Hope your "vacation" on the ranch was relaxing!
He smiled to the berserker
"I'm sure you are a bit missing Light Mocha Pearl.. and your little shack, and stuffs. Please do me a favor, okay? Padparadascha and I made a deal. i will not bore you with the details, but I promised her some... stuffs. As you can see, I'm about to send her the first shipement of materials... and I need you to watch over it. The ship is heading to Beach City, and tho' I'm not worried about the Monsters... I could cause a little unrest, when this beauty arrives to Beach City"
The Assassin pated Bloodstone on the back
"And I can't go to calm things down, for obvious reasons... nor Chip. But you can. Will you do it my friend? Will you help me to keep te peace? And give this Gem communicator to Padparadascha... and my best regards to our friend, Light Mocha Pearl!"
After (or if^^) Bloodstone nodded, the ship headed to Beach City, to arrive a few days later
Bloodstone was admittedly a little bit...confused. Out of the favors they'd been asked to do by Morion, this was certainly a different one. But, given the circumstances, Octi didn't mind taking care of this favor for him. Besides, it was an excuse to go into Beach City, what's wrong with that?
"I suppose I don't mind. I may have some difficulty finding Padparadascha but I'm sure I'll figure that out. And I'll make sure to give them to Light Mocha Pearl, don't worry!"
Octi sighed as when the time came, he was waiting around in Beach City. Some of the things that Morion mentioned troubled him...FIRST shipment? How many would there be...and just what sort of materials would be coming either? Time would only tell..

Oddly Para had been rather idle since her meeting with Morion. Usually she would be working nonstop on various projects, and yet she took a vacation of sorts from her duties. She knew that once things began there would be little to no time for her to have time to herself, so she was enjoying what free time she could get before having to knuckle down. As such she was in Beach City this day, enjoying the sunshine and blue skies from the boardwalk. It was a day like any other, wondering when Morion's shipment was finally going to... arrive?
She slowly sat up in the beach chair she had been relaxed in, trying to process what was pulling closer to the beach. It was a ship, and a massive one at that. It was clearly of human design, though the sheer size was rather impressive. After seeing the scale of Empire City it really shouldn't have surprised her, yet the fact that such a vessel was able to be made by humans and still function caught her off guard. It was rather obvious what this was, or at least so she assumed, although part of her was hoping Morion would handle this with a bit more discretion.
Standing up now Para turned to Light, pausing for a moment thinking about the last few days. After what Light had been through she was trying to get him to enjoy some time relaxing free from any duties. Sadly it seemed that time was coming to an end, but she knew this was coming sooner rather than later. "Come on Light, looks like we've got a delivery. I think...?" She walked up to the edge of the water to wait and see who might step forward, "This really is a grand gesture isn't it..."
Light was laying on the blanket. Sun was shining "Uhhhh... I love light... I mean sun, not me." Pearl was also wearing sunglasses. There was old radio near him, it was playing "walking on sunshine"
Light hate doing nothing but this time it was kinda nice. There was nice whater, his friend, music and no broken gems, hw gems or corrupted monsters. There were also no traitors...
Suddenly big human ship appeared. It was swimingto them. Light didn't realize it till Para talked to him "Of course Mrs Para, what is- oh my..." Light never expect something like that "What is that thing? It looks like it was made by humans. We gems have different style."
Pearl folowed Para when she was approaching to the edge of the water "It is..."
The humans were professionals Their cargo was precious... an alien ship! Not to mention... other things^^ But the ship, that belonged to the Broken Gem, Howlite, until the Smoky Quartz confiscated it was something that they had to deliver; the Boss ordered it And when Senor M sent one of his lieutenants, like the Young Fire Opal, Sulfur, or Bloodstone to a mission, to help his Humans they knew, that mission is a Priortiy A mission One of them walked to Bloodstone and saluted to the Gem His name was Diego. The Quartz.
"Hi B... I mean Lady Bloodstone. We have arrived to Beach City. Your orders? Wait here or head to the docks? The boys are ready to fight, but Senor M ordered us to don't cause any troubles, even when the Crystal freaks provokes us. Shoot to poof, not shatter..."
Diego wasn't happy tho' about that
"Senor M told me, the Artisan Padparadascha is not a "real" Crystal Gem, just in name, to avoid trouble. But she made enemies. Crystal Gem enemies. So our first order is to deliver the ship... the second is to protect Padparadascha if the Crystal Gems tries to hurt her."
Bloodstone laughed softly and smiled at Diego, always finding it amusing when the humans always had trouble figuring out what to call her.
"It's alright Diego. I suggest making your way over here to the docks. It appears that the ships going to be pulling in shortly. Bring the boys down a dmt uou can help me make sure the cargo is unloaded without any problems. I do hope that lady Padparadascha makes it alright...you never know what'll happen nowadays it seems"
Hopefully it wouldn't come down to that, Bloodstone was never to keen on using violence but if it came down to it she would if necessary.
"I carry some respect among the Crystal Gems anyway..I'd be surprised if we'd were attacked by them. It just seems unlikely"

Sure enough the cargo ship made its way closer to the town, nearing the docks that seemed a little unprepared for the sheer size of the incoming ship. She began walking to reach the docks, "Come Light, I think I may need your help carrying these." She looked again at the ship, "And then some..."
Before long they reached the ends of the dock, there she stood and waited to see how things proceeded. At this point she was pretty convinced this was Morion's doing, Beach City wasn't exactly a large enough place to warrant this big of a cargo ship. Even so she wasn't expecting such a big gesture, assuming this ship was even partially full it would be a rather impressive amount of materials.
"Of course Lady Para, what will we carry? Is this some kind of material for your weapons? Do you know what exactly it s?" Than Para said something else. Light didn't hear "Ummm excuse me? What did you say Mrs?"
Gems finnaly arrived to the docks. Now they just needed to wait what will come out of this big human ship. Maybe Pearl had no idea about human ships but he knew that this one is too big for a city like Beach City. At least Light thouht it is kinda weird. "Why this is first big ship I see here? Can they even be here?" Light never expect this day to be so weird and exciting. He liked to watch human inventions.
"But we are here to protect You! And the cargo. The Boss' orders were clear."
He turned to Bloodstone
"You know, the Crystal Gems are strange... why do you think you have some degree of respect among them? You are not a Rebel! You are an Independent... or you claim to be one, yet you are the Boss' lieutenant... like the lil' flaming dude, Chip! But let's put that aside, even if you are "just" an Independent, that only means, you never felt their reasons were just, not enough to support and join them. Trust me B I've seen this awful lots of times... just in smaller scales, in our bands."
Diego warned him
"Always watch your back.. the Rebels anytime could stab you in the back. Like that blue dude did with the Boss. Your friend... Hunter
He reminded Bloodstone quietly
"I will tell the boys, to unload the cargo..."
Diego bowed and let the Bersekrekr alone Soon the giant doors opened, revealing the cargo Howlite's ship!
"I dunno...I just feel that I try to respect every gem's cause to some degree. That's not to say that I agree WITH their cause but I at least..understand. Don't expect me to pick a clear side..honestly I never ASKED to be a lieutenant...Morion just put me in the position out of respect."
Bloodstone sighed and nodded, looking up at the cargo in surprise
"Oh...my. This...well this explains the size of the ship."
Octi wasn't entirely sure how to react at ALL. She was not expecting..well, a ship. Was there anything else? How long was she supposed to hold onto this anyway...and hopefully the cargo that Para was looking for was something *ahem* smaller too

"If this delivery is according to my specifications, then it should be containers filled with various raw materials. Mainly metals, things that will allow me to continue in the forge. However, the actual components come together for something I've had in mind for a while now." She turned from examining the ship, "I simply mean that we may need help moving this much material. At least this should hopefully last quite a while..."
"I honestly have no idea whether this ship is allowed here, but my hope is that this interaction will be short." She averted her eyes back to the ship and grew a tad nervous, "I hate to ask this of you Light, but if anyone asks we can not let the others know I made a deal with Morion like this. My intentions are good, but they won't see that. They'll cast us both out for working with Homeworld, even if it is for the greater good. Understand?"
"Ohh okay. More material means more technology and that means humans will be safer." Para said that she has got something in mind. Light was wondering what could it be "Ohhh! Are you going to upgrade my stick so it will shoot lasers?!" Pearl was pretty exited by this idea.
Para wanted Light to not tell anyone about here working with Morion "Of course Lady Para! My mouth will be closed like... like... what is always closed?"
Doors were finnaly opened. Light wasn't that cheerful anymore. There was a Howlite's ship inside "Wait... WHAT? But how?! Oh no, oh nonono." Gem hide behind Para's back "Howlite could be here, are you sure this is a ship with materials for you?"
"They are the ones? They look like the ones! At least Light, we seen him several times! The other one must be Padparadascha..."
He nodded to the Gem Berserker
"Lets go B! Lets greet them... I will be your bodyguard, and will keep my eyes open..."
Diego Diamond-saluted and accompanied Bloodstone to the dou He had other orders too, not just to deliver the ship, keep Bloodstone safe and such things He had to deliver a message Or at least a Gem communicator
"Hey! Light! You are Light, am I right? You must be Lady Padparadascha! As he promised, he sent a little surprise to you guys. With this..."
He gave the disc-like Gem communicator to the Gems

Para nodded a few times, "You are very correct, I intend on creating things not only to support our own efforts but to help humanity across the world. But of course we will start here in Beach City." She raised an eyebrow, "You wish for your weapon to shoot lasers? I could have done that regardless, that is simple light manipulation along with some minor material components. I shall make it a priority once we return to the Forge."
Her eyes then followed to see what Light was talking about, her expression becoming rather surprised, "Oh my... that is- did you say Howlite? As in from..." Her thoughts drifted off, though she did take a step back. The human that came forth wasn't exactly what she was expecting, "Oh uhm, yes that would be me." She took the disk and looked it over for a moment before looking back to Bloodstone, "Hello dear, the pleasure is mine. You may simply call me Para if you wish. So you are in charge of bringing this shipment then? I was not expecting so much, and the ship... is this all meant for me?"
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
