UED: You Are The Resistance

Selected Option:

A game of science fiction, survival and glory.

An RPG about desperate combat and scarce resources.

A post-apocalyptic setting where the remnants of the human race, soundly defeated by an extraterrestrial invasion, try to survive in an age of snow and ice, to recover the technology of the past and to reclaim their home.

This RPG will take you to a cruel and bloody future where humans are no longer the dominant species on the planet.

UED back cover

Of all that remains of humanity, you are the resistance!

"It's very well done: good layout and smart graphic elements. The system's interesting and handles resources in a novel way. It also includes pre-gens and a sample adventure. Recommended." -- Lowell Francis, Age of Ravens


- The LOST DICE system. Every Attribute (from d4 to d12) has a Reserve of dice - each time you roll one, set it aside. Once they're all gone, you're out of resources. You need to get home or get to shelter and resupply. So choose your actions carefully.

- The 4 professions: play a Soldier, Mechanic, Researcher or Survivor. Each has special abilities that you can unlock as you go up in Rank.

- Improve your Haven. Your successes and failures determine the Morale back home. When things go well, you can upgrade your Haven's levels in Technology or Morale, which give you more and better supplies for future missions into the outside world.

- Optional advanced combat: an appendix containing more detailed rules on fighting and managing your environment suit's life support, detection and operational systems for groups that enjoy more crunch in combat.

- Print & play figure flats: 3 pages of cardboard minis - representing your Runners and the wild animals, human Renegades or alien Invaders they face, plus hex maps and terrain counters.

- Pre-generated PCs: five Runners ready to play, the Iron Fangs of ZION Haven.

- Introductory adventure: The First Mission. Your Haven's leading Runner team went out to contact another nearby settlement. Only one of them made it back - and he died before he could tell anyone what happened. Now it's time for you and your squad to step up and find out what went wrong.

UED: You Are The Resistance was a hit in Brazil's lively and diverse roleplaying scene. Now, thanks to this English-language edition, you can get in on the post-apocalyptic alien-fighting action without having to learn Portuguese!

UED is powered by the Lost Dice system, in which every roll you make means one die fewer in your reserves. The result is rising tension over the course of your mission, as you try to succeed and survive with dwindling resources. 

You set out into the frozen wastelands with your team of Runners, with heated exploration suits and the best equipment your Haven can provide. You're carrying messages, searching for supplies or looking for a way to beat the Invaders. But the world of ice is a dangerous place and chances are you won't all make it home. Wild animals, human Renegades, the robotic Invaders, the biting cold - all of these could kill you.

I was going through the updated files in my RPGNow library (something I haven't done in a while) and I discovered that this game was updated just a week after I originally downloaded. However, the old and new files are almost identical in size and I can't see any difference in content. So what's been changed?

I own the Brazilian deadtree version, so I can't write a regular review. I can tell you though this game presents a fairly original system, which is the highest praise you can throw at a game these days! The setting is well done, with a gripping mood. Layout is topnotch. Writing gets an OK only - authors love the setting, but it lacks *that* spark of talent. The system will remind you of some good videogames, which works on the UED favor as it makes the game more easily accessible for non-regular rpg gamers.
This is an ideal game for a mid to long term campaign and very much worth the price.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
