Brave New WorldThe players" heroes start out as members of the Defiance Movement¸ a loosely organized delta resistance organization dedicated to restoring the America they love to the democracy its Constitutional founders intended. Some are actively involved in creating positive change. Others are just doing their best to not be hauled in before the draft board and get either tossed into jail or pressed into military service. It"s a world in which basic human rights don"t get much more than lip service¸ and you play one of the few people with the power to do something about it. Do you become an active Defiant¸ working against the militaristic state? Or do you join up? Or do you try to live a quiet life of your own¸ helping out innocents whenever you can? It"s your call. Who"s Behind All This? Brave New World is the brainchild of Pinnacle"s president Matt Forbeck. In Matt"s efforts¸ he"s being helped by the entire Pinnacle staff in one way or another. His most notable partner in crime is the illustrious Kevin Sharpe¸ who"s providing the amazing artwork for this game¸ along with a lot of the character concept sketches. If you"re wondering who"s putting together the amazing Brave New World artwork we"ve got up here¸ it"s all Kevin. Dank an Matt Forbeck
America¸ once the last true bastion of freedom on the face of the planet¸ is now ruled under martial law. It"s been that way ever since First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was brutally assassinated by a devastating band of superpowered terrorists during an attack on her husband"s motorcade in 1963. From that fateful day forward¸ the United States has been a nation ruled by fear. Government agents haul people out of their homes and into jail¸ searching for more of these superpowered people--these deltas--and force them to either join the government forces or rot in jail. The last chance for justice in the world lies in the hands of the few¸ proud rebels collectively known as the Defiance. These stalwart heroes live on the run from a government prepared to hunt them to the ends of the earth¸ yet they steadfastly refuse to give up their desperate battle for freedom. The American dream is dead. Welcome to the American nightmare. The thing people are most scared of is you. Brave New World is a brand-new roleplaying game suitable for experts and novices alike. In the game¸ you play a delta¸ a person with amazing powers and a reason to use them. The Brave New World rulebook comes with everything you need to know about the game in order to play¸ right between these two covers. So what are you waiting for? There"s a brave new world out there¸ and it"s up to you to save it!
Brave New World is a story about superheroes in a modern-day¸ fascist America. (Werbetext) More to the point¸ Brave New World is going to first see the light of day as a brand-new roleplaying game that Pinnacle"s going to be releasing at this summer"s Gen Con "99 in Milwaukee¸ Wisconsin. (The show runs from August 5 through 8¸ and if you can make it¸ come on out and stop by our booth. We always love talking and playing games with our fans.) In the roleplaying game¸ players take on the roles of people known as deltas¸ people who have somehow gained fantastic powers "far beyond those of mortals." The America of Brave New World is a fractured place in which deltas are required to register themselves as lethal weapons and to report their movements no matter where they may go. The entire country"s been under martial law since the early "60s¸ and it doesn"t look like things are going to get better any time soon.
