Defiance - Heeding the siren's call in General Sci-Fi Posted July 4, 2007 OK, got to get a reply in here before the 'press office' turns up. I think that Defiance does need to be read with a few minis and a couple of dice in front of you. I am the only person with the rule book that I know, so I didnt have any-one to teach me. However, there are a lot of examples in the book, and setting these up and rolling a few dice really helped me to understand the system. Also, it is best to ignore any force creation rules to start with. Download a basic list from the main site and use these stats to get a handle on the game.
