Dark Spinel crept through the desert night. Walking on his six long legs. It was a sorry sight. A powerful gem, reduced to a mangy beast. The corrupted gem had wild hair that covered his eyes, and claws like the daggers he used to wield. He appeared more like a giant spider to any onlooker. But when he opened his mouth, powerful tongues lashed out. In the middle of them, a sole tongue had a gem on it. Dark Spinel's gem. The tongues lashed out and latched onto a coyote, prowling the night. Dark Spinel drew his prey into his mouth. A minute later spitting out a dead carcass. The gem then became invisible. It came upon a large rock. Upon which the coyotes pack rested. The spider like monster crept up the rock stealthily. Then reappearing to rip the coyotes pack to shreds. Dark, now being covered in bits of coyote, let out a loud howl to let all the desert know he had been the one to kill this pack. The spider jumped down from the rock and continued on. Going to his destroy his next victim.
Sulfur had been following the six legged corruption for quite a while. He eyed it hungrily. He wanted to prove to himself that he still had the heart to shatter a corruption. He wanted it to be a strong one, one that he would hate after he had fought it. This corruption seemed tougher than average, perhaps he would have found another, but this would have to do. It would definitely be strong enough to serve it's purpose.
He silently crept toward it. It was...eating? Gems didn't have to eat. He grinned, realizing what was going on. It was killing out of bloodlust. He summoned ten blades and approached the corruption. He looked at it with a respectful smirk, feeling self righteous about engaging the beast.
"You should know my name monster... I am Sulfur, the last gem you will see!"
As the glowing teal tunnel of aura flowed throughout the warp stream she landed on the somewhat remote area none as the desert, she called it remote as no one really came here that often to begin with in the first place. Out came Blue Quartz, her large curly hair sky blue hair flowing down as she descended in the warp pad, it was a sand storm coming, she could feel it for sure, gust of sand blowed throughout the area, she then activated her visor scanning the perimeter, as she continued onward she suddenly headed a schreeching like sound, it must've been a bowl of sure but from what exactly? Blue would then begun to dash forward in the direction she heard the sound coming from despite the blowing sand she still could be able to use her scanner as a sources of direction.
The corruption growled at the approaching gem. It wanted to fight. Fortunately, that was the one thing this corruption knew how to do. He jumped behind Sulfur before jumping onto a rock. He observed his adversary. He was tall, and green, and seemed full of himself. Something about this gem was familiar. But that didn't matter, he was gonna get shattered. The corruptions claws started to glow with a form of anti-light. Which sucked light out of the night sky. Its claws them became a form of black hard-light. As sharp as the daggers Dark Spinel had once wielded. The dark form let out a battle cry before jumping down from the rock and pouncing onto his new adversary. Dark whisps being left behind wherever the dark corruption stepped.
Sulfur grinned as the beast leapt behind him. He looked at the corruption from the corner of his eyes with a smirk. This was going to be a good catch. He thought he heard someone coming his way, but ignored it. The beat then attacked, lunging downward at him. He waited until the beast was almost upon him, to narrow chances of it being able to dodge. He darted out of the way, leaving five blades around him. The remaining five pointed upward under the corruption. If successful, it would impale itself on the blades.
He did a backflip to gain extra distance. He had to prepare for every possible event. His remaining five blades circled him, ready for their next usage which would probably be shattering.
Blue was close, she heard growling from a close distance in which then she saw it, another corrupted gem that seemed to take the shape of a hideous spider like creature, but someone was fighting it and that someone was sulfur.
Blue would then launch forward towards the two and pasued right in close proximity towards, enough for them to actually see her," Greetings Sulfur, I'll give you a hand with this one, let's not shatter it, I'd like to heal it to see if I can bring it back to its original form.. maybe this gem could be a new addition for the team.." she said. Blue Quartz would then hold her arms out glowing her eye in a lime green colour, suddenly the area of there perimeter begun to rumble slightly, she then used two available cactuses that were rather large indeed, shifting thm form of one of the into a traditional Chinese dragon she would then manipulate the cactus dragon to swarm around the corruption and attempt to squeeze it until it poofed it's physical form.
If her attack were to be successful the form of the corruption would poof having the gem fall into the sand or be saved by Blue herself or Sulfur. Blue still had another cactus for use if she needed to attack it again as these plants did have many sharp points on them similar to a hedgehog.
Seeing the how he would be killed by the green gems sword before he hit the ground. Dark's back legs latched onto another rock before hitting the ground. The beast screeched at Sulfur. He was angry indeed. Sulfur had put up the toughest fight the corruption had seen since he entered the desert. Now another gem had entered this battleground. A blue one, she seemed capable of manipulating plant life. As the cactus came at him Dark jumped out of the way, landing nearby the blue gem. Dark then pounced at the dragon plant, considering it to be yet another competitor. He lashed out with his tongues, the tongues looking like long tentacles in this light. If the attack landed his tongues would become stuck to the cactus, exposing his gem to Sulfur and Blue.
Unfortunately Sulfur still didn't quite recognize the beast by it's gem, but he was willing to comply by Blue's terms. While he didn't agree with Blue Quartz on many accounts, this corruption would make an excellent ally. At least she was thinking for the team, he had to approve of that. He moved five blades to orbit around her.
"I will try to protect you... this is risky, I will have to poof it if things get tight. It would be quite disastrous if you too were corrupted." Sulfur mumbled, keeping his eyes on the monster. "Be wary... this one puts up a fight."
He commanded the other five blades to orbit around himself. He too was afraid of corruption. It was like alcohol. It reduced the proudest of gems into babbling monsters.
Blue looed back at Sulfur once he formed five blades around her," Thanks Sul" she said while glowing her belly button gem summoning her mighty blue shield, she would then pounce in the air and as the corrupted beast lashed out on the dragon cactus it would surley have some damage inflicted upon it as the cactuses had there own defensive ways which was there mini points or thorns if you will all over the cactus plant.
Blue would then look towards sulfur," Hey Sulfur! Use the blades orbiting around me to do an air assault into em, I'll do an attack of my own as well" she said. Blue then twirled from the air to land on the sandy surface using her shield as a boomerang she would pull back the arm she had the shield equipped with and launched it forward towards the corrupted beast with immense speed to attempt to aim at its abdomen and push it in it's back, if successful the shield would go and knock the beast down.
After hitting the cactus, an immense pain engulfed Dark's tongues. This causing him to flip out and start screeching. His claws flashing wildly. Then the shield hit him in the upper abdomen knocking him off the cactus and towards a large rock, which was obliterated by Dark's body as he crashed into them. Dark, now being surrounded by rubble, manged to break free from his rocky prison by slicing through the rock with his sharp claws. He charged at the green one who, in this environment, seemed the weaker of the two. Dark pulled back just in time. He hadn't yet noticed the green blades orbiting them. the corruptions tongues lashed out at the head of Sulfur. Who was the closest to Dark.
Sulfur rolled his eyes when she used his nickname once again.
"That is not my name...Blue Quartz." He whined. She then asked for him to attack. He used a poker face to hide his excitement. He flicked his wrist, launching the blades toward the corruption. Blue Quartz successfully pierced the beast. It seemed to shriek and froth about. That much was expected from a creature. It was a sound that Sulfur missed. He grinned a bit as he heard it. Then the beast charged toward him. He barely moved, only flicking his wrist. The five blades in front of him darted forward to block the tongues, while those behind the beast shot toward it. They came fast and made little noise. If successful, the beast would be skewered from behind.
Blue was loving this formation and pure collaboration between her and sulfur it was just like old times," Come on Sully I'm sure there a nickname for everyone" she'd say while chuckling. Blue then used one of the cactuses she didn't use yet turning it into a giant sword like shape, her eye glowed in a lime green color and shifted back to normal, she smiled evil as if she came from a insane asylum quite bloodthirsty. She then bursted towards the corrupted monster attempting to use the cactus dragon to bite into the corrupted beast while using the giant cactus sword to stab into and hopefully poof. If successful with either attack it surely should be enough for its form to be destabilised with you doubt.
An expression of fear came onto Dark's face as he slammed headfirst into the swords Sulfur had flung his way. Then falling to the floor. Letting out a small screech, making it quite dramatic as he did. Scraping the floor with his claws he started to crawl. He then used to sets of legs to carry himself while using his others to swipe at the approaching cactus dragon. The other swords Sulfur launched hit him straight in the back. Distracted by this, Dark fell onto the floor. The dragon bit into Dark's arm as he looked up to see the blue gem. A helpless expression crossed onto his face as the gem charged at him, cactus sword in in hand. He screeched as the giant sword stab into him, poofing his physical form. His black gem fell onto the ground, glinting slightly in the moonlight.
Sulfur watched as both of their attacks poofed him. He flicked his wrist and desummoned his blades passively.
"It seems quite pierce-resistant. Normally my swords would have done the job alone..." Sulfur said, squinting at the gem. He approached it and looked at it closely. It looked familiar, perhaps even if Blue Quartz hadn't requested an attempt to purify the gem he might have spared it. The gem was definitely one he had seen before. He scooped it up in his hand and shrugged. He walked to Blue Quartz and placed the gem in his hand. "Well then Blue Quartz. Do your thing. In this state any movements toward healing this gem should be successful."
As there attacks defeated the corrupted beast she would see a black gem fall, Blue thought of Onyx for a seind however she knew too well that she was shattered, she then saw that sulfur grabbed the gem and handed it to her. As she grabbed it she would then stand up holding it with both her hands," Fine, I'll stop with the Nick names then" she'd say while looking at the black familiar gem.
Blue closed her eye and begun to concentrate, a few minutes passed and as she was doing so in which then a lime green bright aura formed into the gem healing it internally along with generally all over, the glow was bright however in a few minutes it then subsisded. Blue would then out the gem back down on the sand holding her waist," Alright it is done, this gem should reform momentarily.." she says while watching.
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

*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
