Rare is the era in which so much power has amassed in the hands of so few...



Defiance: Vital Ground is a squad-level game of modern and science-fiction battles for use with 15mm or 25mm miniatures. Within this volume, you will find:
  • Fast-paced rules for fluid, tactical combat. With each attack resolved by just a few die rolls, players will find that how they use their troops is as important as which troops they choose to field.
  • The complete Army Customizer force-building tool. A varied, consistent, comprehensive and balanced construction system, the Customizer allows for step-by-step creation of just about any modern or science-fiction army that players can imagine.
  • Four complete army lists, pitched against the backdrop of an engaging and original star-spanning background with strategic and political depth. Each list was constructed using the Army Customizer--no cutting corners or fudging point values.
  • Professional artwork, fiction and graphic design to stimulate the imagination, all in one complete and ready-to-play package.

A really good job of creating rules that allow for the use of different miniature sets in tabletop sci-fi play, even using a setting that shows the use of Victorian style miniatures in a sci-fi setting. One of the groups is, in effect, a cyberneticical [...]

This is a great rule set from MJ12Games!!! I have to say this was the best reading rule book I have read in my 25 years of TTG, and RPG. So if you want a great set of Sci-Fi miniature rules I would say these are for you. Wes [...]

Original electronic
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.
