Choosing a DzC Force, Part 5: The Resistance
Scourge invasion of human-occupied Earth and Cradle Worlds was an extinction-level event. Billions died in torrents of plasma-fire, and billions more were captured to become slave-hosts to the nightmarish parasites. But not all those left behind suffered the same fate. The pockets of free men and women rebuilt their lives in the shadow of destruction, forming new societies and raising up new leaders from the ashes to take the fight back to the invaders.
When the UCM encounters these forces over 160 years later at the beginning of their Reconquest, they find what are essentially entirely new human cultures: disciplined bands of fighters carefully tending ancient military hardware; creative survivors who have crafted strange patchwork weapons to turn the weapons of the enemy against them; savage tribes of bloodthirsty maniacs who terrorize Scourge and humans alike. Collectively, the UCM designates these wildly-disparate groups “the Resistance,” but the only thing all hold in common is the skill to survive and a burning hatred of their Scourge oppressors.
