Marine Corps Handbook 2215


A supplement for the HOSTILE setting. 

A near future Hostile setting needs Marines ... and the Marine Corps Handbook 2215 gives you a full Marine Expeditionary Unit! Included is a Marine history, organization, combat vehicle and firearm write-ups, equipment, uniform details and more. Line drawings by Ian Stead.

Find out what a gunnery sergeant does, what the Marine infantry think of bug hunts, and how (as a referee) to run a full 13-man squad in a roleplaying session without losing your marbles! Not just a character career write-up, this book is a complete military campaign book for the Hostile setting. Bored of starships? Enlist.

Inside this book is described the organization and operations of a Marine Expeditionary Unit; a review of weaponry, equipment, armour, uniform and camouflage patterns; there is an  ‘In-service’ Marine character creation system; and a referee’s section that provides advice and resources for creating and running small-unit Marine missions.

 For the Hostile setting.

Okay, former Marine, 0311. Me wife (Jill) bought this for me, and I thank both of you for this book. The game aside this is just a great read; I almost cried tears of napalm. Excellent material and really generates the feel of being in the Corps. Semper Fi!

Thank you Jill's husband! That is a tremendous comment, it means a lot to me, particularly with you being a Real Life old school non-star-faring Marine! I sort of used as a template an old 1990 copy of GUIDEBOOK FOR MARINES published by the Marine Corps Association. It gives a real feel of what a new Marine wants to know, and the tone that should be used. Thanks again, I will remember that comment for a long long time!

I Really like the format of small, inexpensive titles with just enough content. Quality over quantity. I buy a new title every week or so and if it fits with my campaign vision, it's in; if it doesn't, I haven't spent 40 bucks just to get one section of content. Keep up the good work.

Hi Neil, no it doesn't. They get their own book, Alien Breeds:

Is a USSC supplement in the works? :)

Hi Aaron

I had not thought of that, the ships would be cool, US, Japanese and German - I was not really thinking there would be much roleplaying opportunity in that other than military conflict. But, using them for Coastguard missions - I suppose they could get into all kinds of trouble out there...

I’ll mention it to my colleague and ship builder, Ian and see what he thinks!

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.
