Welcome adventurer! TRPG is a game where you create your own resource-producing vacation Island!

Next, you will learn about “Plots”, “Nodes”, and the “Queue”, to help you get started on your journey.

Getting Started

  1. Plots - Land that you can build on.

    • Two sizes: Small and Large.
    • Each size has separate building options.
  2. Nodes - Buildings that generate resources and can be upgraded for faster production, higher capacity, and overall better resource yield.

    • There are currently 9 purchasable/upgradeable nodes in the game:

      • Blacksmith
      • Quarry
      • Mineshaft
      • Garden
      • Alchemy Hut
      • Trapper
      • Tiki Bar
      • Dance Floor
      • Fisher
    • Each node has its own upgrade path, allowing a sense of progression and end goal.

    • Some nodes feature an additional (and expensive) “High-tech” upgrade variant, which is the last purchasable upgrade.

    • Resources can be sold at the Merchant Wagon for gold. In return, you can use your gold to purchase more Nodes or upgrade existing Nodes.

  3. Queue - Multiple players can own a Node in the same exact Plot, but only one player’s Node can be shown and collected from at a time.

    • If you are the only player in the game, you will be able to view and collect from all of your Nodes.

    • When more than one player is in the game, there is a Queue which determines whether or not you can purchase a Node (or view your Node if you’ve already purchased one) on a certain Plot.

    • The Queue is first come first serve - As long as you are standing within the general proximity of your Node, it shall remain until you leave the area.

    • If you leave the area of your Node, another player is free to build a Node, or view their already purchased Node.

    • You’ll always keep ownership of all of your nodes - You just may not always be able to access them, until the Plot is available again in the Queue.

Bug fixes/changes:

What’s new:

  • The following Small Nodes are now available for purchase: The Bakery, Alchemy Booth, Weaponsmith. These Nodes have higher purchase costs and upgrade costs compared to other Small Nodes, but also output higher profit at a fast (active) pace.
