Freedom Squadron Commando's Manual

Selected Option:

For Freedom!

It’s the year 2051, and World War III only ended two years ago. Even as the world began to rebuild from the conflagration, humanity was rocked by the revelation that a massive organization engaged in a terrible conspiracy to bring Earth to its knees and under their control. VENOM became the enemy of all freedom-loving people, using military might, criminal undertakings, weird science, occult mysteries, and economic warfare to attack humanity and install their mighty leader, VENOM Commander, firmly in control of the world.

But Freedom Squadron has something to say about that! Formed by the allies of the Trans-Atlantic Coalition, under the auspices of the United Nations, Freedom Squadron is an international force comprised of elite soldiers, sailors, pilots, special agents, first responders, and more, all dedicated to protecting the Earth from VENOM and other terrible forces and
strange, mysterious dangers.

The Freedom Squadron Commando’s Manual is everything you need to create a hero ready to take the battle to VENOM, using the Savage Worlds system:

  • Vocation Frameworks like Athlete, Guerilla Fighter, Law Enforcement Officer, Medic, Ninja, Pilot, Sailor, Soldier, Spy, and many more!
  • Hero’s Journey Specialization Tables such as Black Ops, Close Quarters Combat, Command, Intelligence, Naval Operations, Special Operations, Tech & Engineering, and more!
  • New Edges, including Carnage Corps, Fighting Style, Operational Planning, Strange DNA, Zone Specialist, and more!
  • Introducing Focuses, special enhancements to Skills that both simplifies and fleshes out the Skill system of Savage Worlds.
  • Tons of Gear - weapons, armor, vehicles, and more! 

Grab this manual and get started on earning your Code Name, Recruit! Welcome to Freedom Squadron!

Note: This product was written for Savage Worlds Deluxe. Please see the Freedom Squadron Field Manual for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition updated rules.

Do you need Savage Worlds to play this? In other words, is this a complete standalone game?

It is intended as a companion to Savage Worlds; you will want those core rules.

I should point out we are about to launch a KS that will have the revised Commando's Manual, updated to the latest version (SWADE), along with a number of other long-anticipated books.

Hi ,

Any ETA yet for the Freedom Squadron Advanced Technical Manual and Freedom Squadron Occult Operations Manual, as mentioned in the Commando's Manual?....It's been a while since the manual and SWADE update has been out.

Look forward to some news.

As a matter of fact, as Evil Beagle Games goes through its transformation into a "next level" company, Sean & Robin Bircher have taken the lead on moving all of this forward. We have a Kickstarter plan in the works for (hopefully) later this year.

Is this just a players guide, or does it also include what the GM needs to run the game?

It's primarily to create characters, but you can use it for whatever missions you decide on. There is also the Plans & Operations Manual that goes into Operational Scale missions that is more for the GM, but also has a lot of background fluff and there are also other up-and-coming manuals [Freedom Squadron Advanced Technical Manual and Freedom Squadron Occult Operations Manual] that are for character creation, and, presumably, implementation in missions, which frankly I'm impatient for.

At least I think that's a fair brief description of it.
The short answer is you can just use this manual to play the genre if you want to.

Mark H dropped the mic on this one.

Though I can embellish by saying the P&O Manual has bad guy stats, and the Commando's Manual doesn't.

To begin with will be what we are calling the SWADE Operations Memo; an easy-to-follow set up instructions and information to quickly update your characters and other stuff to SWADE capacity.

I -want- to do a fully-updated Commando's Manual, but we are entering a huge Kickstarter for our Prowlers & Paragons: Ultimate Edition in less than two weeks, so it may take me a while to get to that.

The SWADE Ops Memo will be FREE, distributed here and through the KS to all backers.

That's good.

Any idea on ETA for the SWADE Ops Memo?

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.
