Item description for Starship Troopers - Boot Camp (Starship Troopers) by August Hahn...

Bringing alive Robert Heinlein's classic novel, and the movies and television series that have followed, Starship Troopers The RPG gives players the opportunity to experience the Bug War at first hand. Players can follow in the footsteps of Jonny Rico and his Mobile Infantry troopers as they face the menace of the Arachnids. Starship Troopers Boot Camp is a complete and ready-to-run introductory adventure for Starship Troopers: The Roleplaying Game. The adventure leads MI characters through the induction programme at Federation's legendary Boot Camp, where the harsh trials, training, rivalries and military ritual will test PCs strength and resolve to the limit - experiences which will, will pale into insignificance when the recently graduated Troopers encounter the Arachnids for the first time!

Reviews - What do customers think about Starship Troopers - Boot Camp (Starship Troopers)?

It's value is initally deceptive - but it is a must have!  Feb 10, 2008
Boot Camp was the first expansion offered for Mongoose's Starship Troopers roleplaying game.

This book has absolutely no crunch to it, not a sterrick of a rule is to be found within its covers - it is complete fluff from beginning to end. (actually that's not true - there are a number of fully-stated out NPC's at the end of the book).

Why would I want to buy such a book I hear you ask? Because within the fluff is one of the most innovative and interesting attempts at a mini-campaign that I have ever seen or read.

Instead of the players rolling some dice and choosing from lists and then having a lean-mean-killing machine ready to stomp some bugs, this expansion allows the players to take their characters through the process of going from civilian to soldier. Sound ho-hum? You couldn't be more wrong. For anyone who has actually completed a military boot camp they will know what a life-altering experience it is.

This is exactly what this book tries to achieve. Trying to lay out the dramatic changes that a person undergoes as they become a soldier. The book's narative style is full of suggestions on how seemingly simple and benign situations can be made into full and rich roleplaying experiences - however, I would strongly suggest that the group of players be mature, even if their characters aren't.

I should warn that there are moments when the writer gets carried away with the whole notion and this unfortunately makes an excellent product into a very good product.

This expansion combined with the United Citizens' Federation sourcebook allows the GM to run a Starship Troopers campaign like no other. I especially like the personality templates that the GM is advised to include in any recruit platoon - i.e. the bully, the charmer, the rich kid, etc. I assigned some of these templates to my players characters and had a system of XP awards worked out with they truly 'played in-character'.

Trust me, if you're looking for a different role-playing experience then you can't do better than Boot Camp!
