The little Old Pearl's ship landed far from the cities Sapphire and her Pearl been on Earth several times So Pearl knew, flying around with a little ship is just would cause chaos and panic She parked the pearl shaped ship, and activated the cloacking device, to hide it Pearl landed near that little village near to Beach City for a reason! She had a little barn here With an Earth vehicle, Sapphire recived it as a gift from a Quartz when they were here last time Granny opened the barn doors... some dear humans helped the little old lady Driving goggles Driving gloves Drivers hat^^ A mountain of packages behind, and she was ready to go! With a 20km/h speed, the old car headed and eventually arrived to Beach City^^
Granny stopped the car.... and lloked around What a lovely little city!
Light and Para went to the Beach City for a while. They wanted to just made a little visit. You never know what could happen. Broken gems, Homeworld gems, corrupted gems and other dangerous gems. Since Flint Quartz left there was basicly noone to take care of this. There were Rebels here... but some of them had not the greatest physical strenght or good weapons, machines that could help them. Because of that there were only a few rebels that were doing anything at all. The true is that since destroying of the warps pads and comunication hub nothing really happened.
Pearl was holding a paper and a pen "Temple check, Funland check, game room check... restaurant check! Lady Para, do you think there are some other big places we need to check?" Suddenly Light spotted something. It looked old but stylish "Hmmm what is that? I have never seen such a weird but good looking transportation device."

Para had her own custom made data-pad in her hands, making notes as the two of them went across town. Without looking up she spoke to Light, "I will never understand your insistence on using paper. You know I could make you your own data-pad, yes? It would not be difficult."
Time passed as they made their rounds around the town, broken up with the occasional human interaction or more intensive examinations. Towards the end of their work her attention was grabbed by Light motioning over to the nearby vehicle, "It looks like a human vehicle, although rather... simple. Hmm, my curiosity has been peaked."
Slowly Para made her way to the car, making a deep bow to the occupant, "Good evening mam, you may call me Para and here with me is Light. I must say your vehicle has caught my eye, its design is unlike anything I have seen in recent memory. Is it new?" Knowing next to nothing about how new iterations of human cars worked she had no idea how to tell the difference between an ancient model like this and a more modern design. As far as she could tell it was just a unique design.

The little old lady hopped out (okay, more like, climbed out, lovering the built in stairs) from the vintage car and took off her driving goggles, then looked around
"Nice little town, nice... nice..."
Then the Gems came It was hard to mistake them^^
"Good afternoon darlings! I am Pearl. But just call me Granny!"
She smiled warmly, resting on her cane
"Para? Thats a strange Gem... I knew once a Paraíba Tourmaline! But she was blue. Then there was nice squad of Parisites... hmm.... hmm.... a Para. Are you sure not 'Papa"? There was that Papagoite, but was such a bad pilot, Diamonds, you wouldn't belive it! But she had a great heart. And body. There was no cockpit large enough for her... Mmm... uhm.. yes. Yes. Really nice lady she was!"
Pearl zoned out, but after a few blink, she smiled to the pair
"Sorry darlings! The vehicle! Yes yes! It is a brand new model! That nice Quartz gave it to my Sapphire and she gave it to me! Just a little hard to start it."
She poked the crank with her cane
"But once it start... it can reach a hmmm... 20 miles per hour! The world just whooosh by!
Granny smiled proudly and turned to Light "You are a Pearl too! A bit masculine... but a cute one! Young man, stand straight! Be proud! Now dears, where am I? These maps are hard to read!"
She nodded to the giant unfolded map in the car; it was a bit outdated at least by eighty years, and was about a totally different country.^^
"Paper is completly different than touch pad. It is not used to just type. It is used to make art. You can draw, paint, make origami... It also feel more natural, smeel good and is nice in touch. Not to mention paper is really cheap and is not worth stealing. I am afraid some humans or gems could be interested in your device. It is a rare sight to see something like this in public."
Light followed Lady Para to the weird vehicle. There was a person that looked like an older human. "Good morning." He took a closer closer. She wasn't a human. She was a gem! And she wasn't just a gem, she was a Pearl!
Light had wide open eyes. He couldn't believe that there is a Pearl i front of him. He never saw a Pearl like she. Most of other Pearl looked different. Blacky, Plum, Mocha Pearls and few other Pearls were usually tall, slim and looked like young humans. "Uhhhhh"
Suddenly "Granny" noticed Light "Huh? Ohhh of course!" He stood straight. He didn't had a good position before because of the shock. "Cute...?" Light blushed, people started to call him like that very often for some strange reason.
Pearl looked at Granny'w map "Mrs Granny... I am afraid this is a Russia map from 1950 year."

The fact that Granny was a pearl came as a surprise to her, not that she showed it. Seeing a gem look so human was rather uncommon, although not unheard of. Para recalled Variscite was another gem that could easily be mistaken for a human, although much younger than the one in front of her. What didn't surprise her was their confusion over her name, "Ah, I am a Padparascha. Para is simply a shorter version that I have become attached to."
Para moved to examine the car, "It is a fascinating design, I wonder if we will be seeing more of these models in the near future. These humans are always changing, how very interesting..." She grew more focused on the car rather than anything else, leaving Light to deal with directions. After all, she wasn't very good with Earth's geography.
It was weird to look down to see this Pearl. Usually he was a little bit smaller than normal Pearls. Light was wondering why did she choose to have that form. It was rather odd to decide to make their form weaker and smaller.
"Of course Granny... I am sorry. Yes, this is Russia, I am pretty sure we are in Beach City right now."
Light didn't expect to hear these words. Did this Pearl just invited them for tee and cookies? She didn't even knew who Light and Para really are. "Ohhh yes, we have got a tee shop. It is not far away, probably 20 m from here." Light looked at Granny rather confused "By saying 'I have a bag of biscuits too!' You want to invite us? It is really nice." He turned to Para, she had plans. He didn't want to decided anything without her, she should acdept or not accept ir. But there would be problems... Light and Para weren't fans of eating.

Para couldn't help but blush, "Please dear, the honor is mine. I am a gem, just like yourself, nothing special." It struck on her that it had become more natural for her to downplay her class of gem, in fact it was a privilege she didn't really miss.
She listened quietly to Granny's explanation of her previous vehicle, amused by its novelties. To think humans used something so primitive only a few decades ago and now they were fast on their way to space travel. Content with her examination of the car Para looked up as they were discussing tea, "Hmm... I suppose we have made good progress on our work here, a break wouldn't go amiss." She looked at Light, "Oh I could never say no that face. If you will have us Granny then we would love to have some tea and biscuits with you."
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.

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
