“Lost Veridian” – Inspired by Lady Revan’s SW Fan Fiction Story

Hello Everybody, today I have a new saber inspired by the great fan fiction storytelling of a friend of mine from the Ultrasabers SaberForum.com. Her name is Lady Revan and LR has written a fabulous Star Wars story based on the characters found in the Star Wars games I have been inspired by recently (those games being Knights of the Old Republic [KOTOR] and Star Wars The Old Republic [SWTOR]). I have already designed a hilt based on a character from LR’s story, that hilt was for a person named “Opela Moraf” but this one I’m not sure who it belongs to! I chatted with LR and she spoke of a mysterious “viridian green coloured saber” which had been lost/rediscovered in her story. The chat went on and LR sort of suggested she’d like to see a For Tyeth 3D model built from her description, so I went to work. My first attempt was OK but looked a little short and stubby but I did make it in less than 30 minutes and was just a test build…. it looked a bit like this…

LR told me the saber was a long lost relic so I needed to keep the design fairly simple but interesting at the same time. To achieve this I used a clawed emitter and added a pommel that had similar spines. I also built a “primitive” crystal chamber section too. This chamber though is more complex than it looks! There are two halves, created from one part mirrored to form a whole chamber. It also has two crystal spheres to create the pearl like gem located in the chamber…oh and it has transparent plexiglass panels to enclose the upper sections. However, as usual I wasn’t 100% happy and felt it needed stretching a bit (I felt it a little too short) and it was too linear. I went back to work on it…

I rebuilt the hilt and realised whilst doing so that the pommel was too cluttered so I removed some of the spines. This resulted in the emitter and pommel having the same number of claws/spines and provided some continuity. And to add the necessary length I added a fluted section between the chamber and pommel. I felt this made the saber more elegant but not look too advanced. The saber was now more balanced, had a D-Ring attachment to hang it from a belt hook and I recoloured the blade to make it more “silvery green”. OK enough chatter, it’s time for a few Glamour Shots, here is Lost Veridian deep in the depths of a distant jungle…

You may have noticed I added a new texture that is semi glossy and some nice pinstripe detailing on the emitter and pommel’s spines. The pommel has a new speaker grille added and the “Krayt Dragon pearl” has an updated speckled appearance to make it look more organic. Hopefully this hilt should fit the bill for Lady Revan’s story…But wait! There are always two sides! So here is a Dark Lost Veridian that may have been corrupted by the Dark Side of the Force and a few more  Glamour Shots of this saber’s dark sibling….

And that just about brings me to the end of this post…but first I have to say a big thank you to Lady Revan for the great story “Only Light Can Cast A Shadow” (which you can read on SaberForum.com by clicking HERE . However please be aware the story has adult themes and may not be suitable for younger Padawans!) I hope you like the Lost Veridians.

I also need to thank all of you my viewers and followers, new and regular, as always your support is fantastic and much appreciated. Hopefully you will call back to see future posts and my upcoming saberstaff designs and my recently announced “FT Master Series” builds! Till next time…..

“Lost Veridian Saber” and “Dark Lost Veridian” are For Tyeth Edition designs inspired by the fanfiction story written by Lady Revan, and is ©Copyright of For Tyeth/FTSabersite 2016-2019.

  1. I find myself drawn to the dark side sabre. Should I be worried. Black and chrome has always been my thing though. The contrast just works so well. This sabre with the similar design features at both ends has a nice sense of balance.

    1. Hello Neil, you have nothing to fear….you are intelligent enough (and strong with the Light side of the Force) not to be tempted by the Dark!! And anyway I am here to pull you back should you wander down that path. But I have to agree with you, the combination of black and chrome always looks good – it must be all the classic cars I have seen with the bodywork and detailing that influenced me. Thanks for checking the hilt out!

    1. Thanks TVTA, that colour scheme was down to the fact that Lady Revan told me this saber in her story had a “silvery green” blade, and the hilt was old. I had to hold back on going too adventurous….but I just had to model the black hilt for balance in the Force!

    1. Hello Resa, yes I’m fortunate to have got to chat with Lady Revan and read her stories. LR is also a talented costume maker, in fact she is very artistic all round. And I’m so pleased you like the hilt, sometimes simple can be very effective. Thanks again.
