Patriot¸ the legendary leader of the Defiance¸ is dead¸ executed by the fascist government he was working to bring down. People-both deltas and regs-riot in the streets¸ and anarchy reigns across this battered country. Renegades on the run everywhere look to the one organization that started this all¸ the one group of people that might be able to bring it all to an end¸ the one last hope for restoring democracy to the United States of America: the Defiance! But the Defiance isn"t all it"s cracked up to be¸ hardly the unified front it desperately needs to be to have a prayer to be able to stand up against the government. One faction argues for stubborn resitance¸ another for all-out war. A third insists on taking the high road of peace¸ while the last calls for a mass delta exodus to a newly founded homeland far from America"s troubled shores. If Patriot was still here¸ he might have been able to bring all these divisive groups together¸ to rally them under a single banner. But Patriot is dead and gone. Is the dream gone too? Defiants-the latest sourcebook for Brave New World-comes packed with details on the Defiance and its various factions and their leaders¸ all struggling to bring their unique vision to the fore. It features six brand-new power packages to create new kinds of heroes with¸ plus details on the final fate of Patriot¸ the greatest martyr for the Defiance. Make a stand for what"s right. Ever Defiant!
