Cubicle 7 Defending The Earth: The UNIT Sourcebook


Front and centre, soldier! You’re part of UNIT now, the Unified Intelligence Taskforce. We are the Earth’s best defence against the myriad alien forces who would try to subjugate and conquer our planet.


It’s not an easy job, and even those recruited for their scientific knowledge can find themselves on the front lines of combat against almost unstoppable foes. We will protect humanity from extraterrestrial terrors or die trying.

Defending the Earth is a 160 page full colour sourcebook for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game.

Within, you’ll will find:

*The history of UNIT
*Rules for creating UNIT characters, including new Traits and Areas of Expertise
*Expanded firearms and combat rules, including mass combat and skirmish rules
*Details on major UNIT personnel, including the legendary Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
*Two new adventures

and more…

      I think PDF is good too because you can read it on the move.

      Who reads whilst on the move? Surely it’s easier to sit down on a nice comfy chair and read!

    I am presuming this is the one that was originally due for 24th November 2010. I just thought I had missed it. Great to know it’s coming out.

      You aren’t allowed to say that. Thankfully there was a comment in The Power of Three that suggests it is back to “UN” although obviouslly they can’t say what that stands for I think we all know.

      Yeah exactly “Designs” Also Booboo, I don’t see how that is a reason not to have the correct monster designs

      The game also features pictures of the 11th Doctor but he never met any of these either.

      Point is its a roll play game so they can show what they want

      @ Alfred.

      A role playing game is when you can create or become a character in a game and take on missions and stuff. Mass Effect is a good example. Sort of…
