Viridian-Fantasy TTRPG Wiki
The wiki containing all the latest updates and game documention for the TTRPG, available for all to read.
Official Discord server for managing the game’s community and to give feedback and create characters.
Updated: 17th October 2022
“Having shifted into a more ‘Perk-driven‘ system, Playable Races are now developed with a forethought of using the Potential Skill in order to unlock racial traits and abilities much in the same way that characters unlock their skills. Even powerful, magically-augmented races have humble beginnings, unlocking their powers one by one and taking time to invest in their powers as much as one sharpens their skills. Archetypes are now more free as one can acquire features of an Archetype much like other perks, provided they meet the requirements.”
The ‘big three’ of the Viridian Republic now have pages: Atheneans, Chroneans, and
Yamanokyojin. Chroneans being a race that were a long-time coming. Also the Character Creation page has been updated with the new state of the game and the use of Progression-Points. The Artek have also had an update and a couple of new Archetypes were added, the
Warsmith and the Gambler.
“More work will need to be done before the RPG goes into beta. this is all based around having pages for the Skills, along with their Perks, completed and having a good array of Archetypes in a workable state. Other playable races are still something I continue to work on, but in a more pragmatic way, developing based on player interest. I plan to get close, or even have a beta playable by next month!”

Avatar in Development: Gokuwmon (From ‘Digimon’)
“Stepping away from the Footstep Dynamics for a bit (further updates caused it to break further, will investigate later). I decided to port over an all-new model to the collection, Gokuwmon from Digimon! Aside from being cool looking for a humanoid, he has surprisingly good limb proportions for virtual reality, and it is with this model that I have applied my first ‘Prop toggle‘, allowing him to equip his long staff-like Fuhzi to his right hand, likely for bonking people.”
“I have plans to create alternate colour variations for this model as well, there’s lots of potential for alternate fur colours, skin tints, the colour for his bandana/neck-coif and other accents of the costume. Also improving the prop usage by adding dynamics, switching a toggle to the hand with a toggle to activate contacts to which Gokuwmon can draw his weapon from his body, instead of thin air!”
“Another thing I am pleased about with this attempt is learning about and mastering Phybones, the ability to have parts of the model have their own interactions and physics, things from the chains on his arms, to the laces on his boots and the various hair and accessories on his head all move according to gravity and touch!”
Avatar in development: Gantu (from Lilo & Stitch)
Sept 15th Update:
“After acquiring a sound-clip to test with, I can confirm that avatar dynamics can produce actual footstep sound triggers! Sadly, the activation is rather spotty, only triggering some times but not others. And it’s not like it’s intermittant, sometimes footsteps activate one after the other and then other times it just doesn’t. I can see that the contacts are activating but the sound-clip associated does not always play. This will continue to be worked on.
“Right now, I’m working on getting footstep sounds working for Gantu. I have the contact recievers and senders ready so that when the avatars feet touch the ground, a sound-clip will play. Furthermore, the minimum-velocity setting will allow it to only trigger when the contact is activated at a greater enough speed, enabling it to sound off when make deliberate steps, but not when shuffling about in place. Problem is: I’m still looking for a good sound-clip to use for the character, but I have someone on the case to find some good sources!”
Secondary avatar in development: “Shinobi” (original model from Mortal Kombat)
“I’m also looking into adding props to Shinobi, I’m aiming for Kunais, A Katana and even a Quarterstaff. With avatar dynamics, it will be possible to place them on his body and then intuitively set it up so they can be picked up by hand for a more immersive experience. This too requires more models in order to start the process but it’s the next thing in line. It’s probable that Gantu will also get his plasma pistol back and will be inplemented in a similar fashion.”

COMIC & STORY-BASED DEVELOPMENT HUB
Updated: 13th September 2022
“I’ll admit, that this sector has had the least attention drawn to it since I started up production in August/September, but there are still a few written stories and comics I’m thinking about producing when I’ve run my course through my 3D-modelling and VRChat avatar creation phase. It’s entirely possible that the skills learned in those sectors will help lay the foundations of visual works like Comics. Even more tragically, any discussion of stories in development would be ill-advised to all except valued subscribers, so only expect news to be available to Story-based and Premium subscribers.”
“I’ll be showing exclusive production sketches from this tier (and premium), but I’ll be sure to spoiler-tag anything in case people want to keep the surprise until the finished product. Although to be perfectly honest, the actual surprises I have in store will likely be a well-kept secret even from my subs, just to be extra sure!”
