'You are Troopers when I say you are Troopers. Not one moment before. And until I believe you fit to carry on that fine tradition, you are nothing. Less than nothing.’
‘I will break you and mangle you and grind you beneath my boots. You will beg to be released. You will beg for death – for anything that might save you from me. And I will let you go. Because I don't want you here. No one does. You think you have what it takes. We are about to find out.'
'Welcome to Boot Camp.'
Congratulations on joining the Mobile Infantry, the backbone of the Federation military. Starship Troopers: Boot Camp will teach you everything you need to know about being part of this elite fighting force. You will learn how to fight, how to think, and how to survive. You will learn to use power suits, Morita rifles and other tools. You will learn how to stare Death in the eye and laugh.
Starship Troopers: Boot Camp details the process of becoming Mobile Infantry. It covers every step from recruitment through the first mission. It offers players a chance to see exactly what their characters go through, leading to a better grasp of their characters’ training and personal history: How characters become recruits; the training itself and the boot camp where training takes place; the postgraduate placement when they have escalated from recruit to private; and finally, their introductory mission. Whether you are a player or the Games Master, this book will tell you how the Mobile Infantry are created from lesser men and what rites of passage they must endure to gain that ultimate privilege – citizenship.
