The EPF Handbook was a handbook for Elite Penguin Force agents. The book included details about Elite Penguin Force Agents, villains, gear, and other general information. It was located at the bottom-right hand corner of the EPF Command Room. It was the spiritual successor to The F.I.S.H., which was a guide for PSA agents.

  • Just like hidden pins in yearbooks, the EPF Handbook had secret messages popping by clicking certain parts of pages.
  • There was an unused popup which detailed the Director's signature, the last symbol used in Tic-Tac-Toe Code, which presumably meant "AA". Notably, it also referred to the Director as being head of the PSA, which ceased operations in 2010, rather than head of the EPF.
  • The handbook made no mention of PH or the Elite Puffles.
  • The "new recruit" had multiple similarities to Franky. The silhouette closely resembled artwork of him on the Club Penguin: The Party Starts Now! album, and the recruit's bio made reference to having a "public persona", associating with "musicians", among other mentions of sound and electronics (Franky played the keyboard).
    • According to a former Club Penguin writer, this new recruit was not explored further due to little response from players, and not fitting into other then-ongoing stories.[1]
  • The encoded message in page 6 says "YOU DID IT! YOU FOUND ME!", which was Dot's first quote in her debut in The Mystery Unfolds.
