Alien gemstones give teenagers the power to fight a bunch of alien monsters. Yeah, it's one of those. {FULL}

Introduction

Heavily inspired by Steven Universe(go watch it now) with some Green Lantern thrown in, and a touch of Power Rangers(don't judge me), and stuff from my own mind.

God, it's hard to believe that it's come to this. I guess I should start from the beginning huh? Well it all started with that damn meteor shower. Once in a lifetime opportunity they said. Go out, and watch it they said. I swear if I find the jackass who first suggested that.....I digress. Anyways, the point being that was when it all started, when the shit hit the fan, and all that weird crap started. The meteors hit earth, right where we watching them, in the miles of forest outside of Point View City, Washington. And one space rock nearly crushed me, and my friends.

When it fell near us one of us had the bright idea of getting up close, and checking it out.....it might have been me. But you can't prove a thing! Anyways, what none of us knew, well we barely know now, but these meteors were not normal. We didn't find a baby in a spaceship, or anything like that. Though it wasn't that far off. These meteors were in fact the remains of a far off distant world that had long ago been destroyed, and came hurtling through space until it hit our little blue crap ball.

These meteors weren't normal pieces of rock. No, in fact most, if not all of them were alive. Sentient inorganic beings made of something similar to Earth minerals, particularly gemstones. From what we know now there was some kind of great war bruh-ha-ha, and some great evil attacked their world, corrupting many of it's inhabitants, turning them into horrific monsters that ended up tearing apart their world. These meteors were the remains of the planet's inhabitants, both the normal ones, and the corrupted ones.

When we got close to the space debris something happened. There were these.....gems that began growing on the ground. They looked like rubies, sapphires, emeralds, onyxes, topazes, and amethysts. They were....moving in fact, appearing to be alive! And that's when it happened. These gems attached themselves to our bodies, forming rings on our hands made out of each of those gems. Of course we tried to pull the weird alien rock things off but it was no use, they wouldn't budge a bit.

And from there shit got.....weird. We were suddenly attacked by a giant....frog....thing. Turns out these gems weren't the only surprise that the meteor shower had to offer. Remember those corrupted monsters I was talking about? Well when one of those rocks get close to something living it takes them over, turning the poor sap unlucky enough to be near it into a twisted, monstrous version of themselves. It was pretty scary for a couple of highschool kids. And then it got....weirder. Our gem-ring-things reacted.

Mine was the first to act up. I was suddenly encased in an armor of ruby, and moved around like a meatsuit by the stupid hunk of rock. I had no control over my own body. The ruby-thing used me to kill the monster, it was pretty badass though. And then more of those frog things showed up, some of the corrupted rocks had fell into a pond, and turned all the frogs into monsters. Oh! And did I mention they spit acid? Yeah, it was fan-freaking-tastic. The ring things on the others reacted as well, encasing them in a full body armor like mine, and the gems used us all to kill the monsters.

After the monsters were dead we had a.....vision I guess you could call it. I don't know, but suddenly we all say a different version of ourselves, and it explained that it was the gems that were stuck on our fingers. It told us a story about how they were the last sane members of their race, all the others were corrupted by something they referred to as the 'Mistake'. Whatever that meant, they aren't very forthcoming. They told us that these gems are all that is left of their original bodies, and that without being attached to our bodies their last bit of life would have been snuffed out.

They told us that this corruption would consume our world like it did theirs so long ago. And it was now up to us to protect the world. And we didn't have a choice in the matter. The gems were already connected to our body, and removing them would kill both us, and them. But they told us there would be some benefits to being bonded with them. They made us stronger, and more durable than any other human as well as access to a arsenal of weaponry made of the gems that were bonded to us, and were only limited by our imagination. Well, almost. There were of course some limitations. But also some surprising bonuses, like suddenly being able to control different elements! It's super badass, I can control fire!

Well that's it in a nutshell. We still don't know a whole lot. The gems have refused to speak with us since then, we only get vague emotions from them, and occasionally a little bit of puppeteering from them when we are in way over our heads. What happens now, I don't know. I just know that we have to destroy these monsters, and we have no idea how many there is. Yeah, we are insane.

Long ago the gems were once humanoid beings made of a material of similar structure to that of the gemstones found here on Earth. Since the destruction of the homeworld the remaining gems were destroyed, shattered into fragments that was sent across the stars. Under normal circumstances a gem, no matter the injury, is able to regenerate so long as a single shard of it's former body remains. But due to the untold amount of time they spent hurtling through space weakened them drastically. They went into a coma-like state, unable to regenerate fully.

Over time throughout the centuries many gems were lost through natural occurrences in space until only six known sane gems remain. When the gems landed on Earth, the only way for these gems to become active, whether corrupted or not, they need to leech off the life energy of a living being, either a human or animal. For the sane gems they are far too weakened to take full control over a host, unlike a corrupted gem which has no trouble with completely taking over the host body.

The normal gems original minds, and personality are still active within their current state, though they are unable to speak with one another, or there host unless they exert their power, but this leaves them quite drained, making it impractical in the long run. However with that being said when a gem feels an extreme emotion, be it anger, sadness, or such then the host will feel it. The gems provide a number enhancements to it's host, such as increased strength, and endurance as many of the hosts bones are strengthened, and enhanced by the gem's power. Their body is also stimulated enough to heal much faster than the average human.

Perhaps the most notable ability they provide is that it allows the host to transform their gem into a variety of weaponry, and tools. The weapons however are limited by the fact that it cannot leave it's users body. The ring is still attached to their body, and simply grows into whatever item the user wishes it to be. Usually depending on the item a gauntlet-like glove will be formed on the users hand. One notable example would be a sword, where a glove is formed around the hand that has the gem on it, and a sword is formed in their hands that cannot be disconnected.

Any shards from the gems cannot leave the main gem, for if it does the shards of the gem will become unstable, and break apart, leaving them limited with range attacks. The gems can be extended for a much better ranged attack, for example a hand could be stretched out from the gem, and used to attack a foe farther away. It does have it's limits, as the farther away the more the gem is stretched thin. The gem weapons are limited to being summoned on the hand the gem itself is on, however if the gem extends itself on the users body they may then create another weapon or tool, such as a armor extending across the user's chest, and shoulders and onto the other arm to be able to summon a secondary weapon.

While the gems may have limited range abilities, they make up for it with their unique abilities to manipulate the varies elements. Each known normal gem has a different element they are able to manipulate:

  • Ruby - The ruby gem is able to manipulate, generate, and shape fire.
  • Sapphire - The sapphire gem is able to manipulate, and shape existing water. Depending on the climate of where it is, it may be able to draw what little water is in the air, and manipulate it.
  • Emerald - The emerald gem has the able to generate, and manipulate electrical currents.
  • Amethyst - The amethyst gem relates to creating, and manipulating ice. They create ice by freezing the moisture in the air. But much like the sapphire this depends on the climate where the user is at.
  • Topaz - The topaz gem relates to the manipulation of air.
  • Onyx - The onyx gem is able to manipulate minerals, and other earth materials.

  • Hello, hello, hello! I'm CutUp, and I'll be your GM for the evening. Let's get these rules over with and get to some fun! Your gonna need to reserve your character in the OOC of course, no PMs, and you need three passwords that are hidden here in the rules just so you will read them. Also when reserving your character include the gem you want them to use.
  • The FCs I picked, no matter how hard it was to find most of them, aren't set in stone. If you got someone you'd rather use then place their name and a gif in the OOC. Password #1: What is your character's color code?
  • This RP will be full of violence, strong language, and all that good stuff, so be prepared for that. Also I don't mind romance, in fact I encourage it! But do be mindful of the site's rules. Pervs.
  • No God-modding, bunnying, powerplaying, etc. Pretty basic stuff. I know that might be difficult for this kind of RP, but I'm sure you get the picture. Password #2: What is your favorite animated show/anime?
  • Let's do be civil. We're RPers not YouTube commenters. If you got a problem take it outside!
  • DO COMMIT! Please don't just disappear in the first couple weeks. Try to post at the very least once a week, or every two weeks. Just don't go more than three weeks without anyone having heard anything from you.
  • You have one week to complete your character. That is extremely generous! If you can't get it done in the allotted time then that shows me that you aren't committed. If you need an extension then please tell me, I'll give you one so long as it's a valid reason. I get it, life sometimes gets in the way.
  • I will not be making any more roles. Dem six is it. Sorry, maybe next time kiddo.
  • If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, what have you then send them my way! We all have room to improve! Especially if you have questions about the gems. I may not have explained them clearly enough, and I'm happy to clear anything up. Password #3: Put in a funny gif! I love them so. Bonus points if they are related to Password #2.

The GM of this roleplay hasn't created any rules! You can do whatever you like!

Red, all of it was red. Mac rode his skateboard through the streets of Point View City, but it wasn't his hometown. The entire city was made of ruby, and glowed bright red, even the sky was ruby colored. Mac rode aimlessly around the empty city. Nothing to be seen, or heard except for the sound of his skateboard. Then the sky began to darken, a huge shadow was cast over the entire city, causing Mac to stop in his tracks. The once ruby city began to blacken, and crack as the darkness came towards him. Mac tensed up as he peered into the darkness to see many yellow eyes to look back at him.

The monster eyes began circling around him, like sharks circling their prey. He held up his right hand to only see that his ruby gem is no longer there. He backed away slowly before he bumped into something behind him. Behind him was a version of himself entirely made of ruby, and with burning eyes. This was the same entity that explained everything about the gems to him when the ring first attached to his finger nearly three weeks ago. Mac looked at his doppelganger with confusion.

"You have to fight. Or your world will turn to dust." The entity stated in a cold, and emotionless manner. The darkness behind it then began creeping up behind the entity, soon turning it's body completely black, and replacing it's fiery eyes with bright yellow ones. A sinister, and unsettling grin crept across it's face as it held it's hand out to Mac. "Or you can embrace the chaos. Revel in the madness." Mac stared at the hand, and before he could react a sword formed in it's other hand. It then proceeded to stab Mac right through his stomach.

Mac's eyes shot open as he quickly sat up in his bed. He looked down at his right arm to see it completely encased in ruby. It soon receded into it's normal ring form. Mac got out of bed, and ran his hands down his face. Another nightmare. He has had similar dreams for the past week, each one more intense than the last. It was decided among the group that they'd first learn how to control their new found abilities before they started hunting the monsters. And since then the ruby ring has become....restless would be the best word for it.

Mac can feel the ruby entity growing anxious. It wants them to fight the monsters. It's tired of waiting. And Mac can sympathize with that. Mac got himself dressed in his usual attire, and began to leave his room. He left the orphanage that he calls home as fast as he could, and kept his head down on the way out. He was not in the mood to deal with the jerks that run the damned place. He pulled out his phone, and sent out a mass text to his friends. It told them to meet up at the woods, where they first got the gems.

It was a Saturday, and school was about to start so he hoped that everybody would be free. Mac quickly rode his skateboard to the outskirts of the city, and had to hoof it to the meeting spot. Once he was there he stared at the crater that once held the gems. His gem slightly reacted to this, and grew slightly.

Michiko Akasuki


It was early Saturday morning and, while most other kids were asleep, Michiko had been awake for hours.

Initially she'd been criticizing a summer reading assignment that would be due on the first day of school, but (like always) she'd gotten distracted. What normally hooked her attention were books (*cough*fan-fiction*cough*) or the fantasies of cute guys (*cough*Kenny*coughcough*) however this time it had been something different: the ring upon her right pinkie finger. At first she had simply ignored the strange pull from it - like a tiny magnet tugging at her attention - however over the course of an hour her curiosity had gotten the better of her and she soon found herself tucked into a ball on her chair, knees to her chest and eyes fixated upon the peculiar item.

Straying to the memory of how she'd come into possession of the ring, it was no question as to why she was so fascinated by it.

Just over a week ago she'd agreed to go out with her friends and watch the meteor shower outside Point View City, Washington. It was beautiful and she'd actually been able to sit back and enjoy it (likely because Aria had stolen her notebook to prevent her from taking any notes or do homework). However this simple pleasure had been cut short when Mich realized that a few meteors had not burned up in the atmosphere and seemed to be coming directly towards their little group. They had scattered in fear, regrouping around the smoldering rocks before (against Mich's better judgement) moving closer. Like the first episode of an awesome anime, something like liquid / sentient gemstones leaked out of the space rocks and attached themselves to all of their bodies - assuming the form of rings that could not be removed.

Naturally they'd panicked but these things revealed to them all that they were the only survivors of a brutal war where a great evil (whom they referred to as the "Mistake") had driven the rest of their species insane. But as cool / tragic as that sounded, it got much worse: many more meteors had landed on earth containing the crazed aliens, who would attached themselves to any living creature nearby and proceed to wreak havoc on the world. Of course they all thought they'd gotten hit by the space rocks and were dreaming everything... until out of nowhere (as if to prove the gems' story) a bunch of bedazzled, acid-spitting frogs attacked. In response their "rings" had kind of taken control of them all, and with unfathomable powers, the they'd managed to defeat the monsters before the "rings" warned them that they were now the protectors of their world and becoming almost completely unresponsive.

Starstruck (literally), they had all agreed to take a week and try to understand what had just happened. As far as Mich could tell it was like something out of an anime and she'd just spent almost six hours puzzling over this sentient-gemstone-magical-alien-ring-thing, discovering nothing. She had so many questions. How many were out there? How many of them were still sane? What'd happened to their planet and what was the "Mistake" they so feared? Yet aside from the occasional vague emotion and constant satisfaction to felt to/from the ring, she'd discovered nothing else aside from what they'd been told that fateful night.

But her efforts had not been entirely fruitless; it was almost immediately apparent that her topaz companion had the ability to manipulate air in addition to giving her a protective shield for melee combat, like it had during that first battle. She'd discovered this while playing her violin - needing to turn the paper at a particularly busy section, she'd been surprised by a gentle, source-less gust of wind did the work for her. She'd since been trying to learn more about this ability and discovered that she could create a bow that fired air-rows (yes that was a literal pun) because she was rather... unsuited, for melee.

Michiko was snapped out of her daze by the buzzing of her phone on her desk and she jumped as if she'd been shot before reaching over and picking it up. It was a mass text from Mac to herself and the others, telling them to meet him within the next hour at the place they'd found the gems. Mich felt a wave of excitement and fear as she responded "omw". Had her friends found anything else? Was something wrong? Had they all done their summer assignments? She wouldn't know until she got there, so she quickly threw a few important items into her backpack, pulled her fuzzy salmon sweater over her head and raced downstairs. Her dad was already at work but had left half a pot of coffee for her which she promptly poured into a thermos before hurrying out the door.

Hopping onto her bike, and with the cool wind to her back, Michiko was there perhaps 20 minutes after sending the text. Mac was already there of course and she offered him a warm smile as she leaned her bike against a tree. "Good morning Mac," she chirped happily, her somewhat quiet voice still quite cheerful as she addressed him, "How're you?"
