Starship Commandos


You are part of the Marine Special Armour and Tactics squad – the elite MARSAT – facing all the threats the universe has to offer. Kitted out in the J25 Individual Tactical Support Harness the marines of MARSAT undertake the most dangerous missions assigned to the Fleet Special Purpose Force, whether that might be facing an alien menace, interdicting pirates, or a protecting civil authorities from a violent coup d'etat.

Starship Commandos provides a simple system for intergalactic adventures by elite marines using the latest in power armour. Included are the rules, a discussion of the MARSAT and the role of the marines in a space fleet, and two hooks and opponents to help inspire adventures.

I'm afraid there's no plan to provide a print version at this time. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thanks for your interest!

Neither Preview is doing anything in my browser (while other products Previews do work).
I would like to know more about the system before I purchase.

What are the Stats? Are they rolled? What are their range of scores? How does one hit in combat? Etcetera.

I'm afraid I have no ability to troubleshoot the preview, however you can see a sample character here:

Certain stats provide dice (Concept, Traits, Training, Harness) for an opposed roll, while the Flaw inflicts a penalty die (used by opponent). Dice range from d20 to d2, and it is a "roll under" system, meaning a smaller die is better. The Pivot can provide advancement.

It is a very light system with abstract conflict resolution.

I would be happy to answer any other questions.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
