The same way we have Character template, I think we should also make one for NPCs. - Since a lot of us have NPC allies, like my Rubies or 7XB's Rubies, not to mention Toast's Tanzanite and the Gem Mutants of Broken Gems.
Obviously, I'm not sure what kind of limitations should we set as of now, just suggesting.

I think having a Character Template for NPCs would be kinda off as we are only able to have three playable characters, it's like making another playable character in a way unless given decent limitations. It's not a bad idea it's just that it wouldn't be necessary really.
I like this idea a lot, because I think it would not only prevent abuse of NPC allowance on the site, but it would also allow opportunity for players to utilize "NPCs" that other players have come up with, ultimately adding a layer of lore and depth, and helping "NPCs" sort of live up to their name. We have been fine using NPCs so far on an honor system but I think putting a more solid system in place would be helpful especially since I have seen a few instances where NPCs were involved in combat. I think our group is good at communicating with each other in the PMs about NPC use, but getting a system in place sooner than later could be advantageous.
I would suggest that there is a thread where players can all post their contributions to the NPC pool, and they might label these NPCs as "Open" or "Closed"; Open NPCs would be available for all players to use in their threads as a reoccurring characters, while Closed NPCs would be those like personal pearls or ruby squads which wouldn't exactly be full fledged characters. We might have a short template for each that just has crucial information on it, but because it's a template, the players can decide what information to provide about their NPCs mostly.
If people would still want to do this I’d definitely use this just for reoccurring background characters. I wouldn’t really want to personally put down all of them but just for some site consistency. And the npcs we use would still be free to make but these ones are free to use and people could update the post based on whether they’ve poofed or bubbles one of the npcs in a thread that way they aren’t just always hanging around with no consistency.
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.

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"'s Origin is still unknown, some suspect it was a viral infection, other claim it was a Diamond experiment gone awry and other suspect the organics were behind it. Regardless no one seem to have a proper answer about what it was and why its only isolated to Earth
*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
