The Exodus System

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$6.99

The Exodus System takes classic OSR games and adds modern innovations. This book is suitable for playing sci-fi, fantasy, and all sorts of other genres. It takes inspiration from such other systms as Savage Worlds and the Cypher System.

For Players:

-Fast Character Creation: Get a PC made in minutes

-Versatile Options: Every character is useful at something, both in and out of combat

-Create-a-Class: Choose a Party Role, a Combat Role, and two Flavors and you've got your custom class.

-Support for Creativity: Do you want your Performer who focuses on Companions to be able to summon eidolons of pure sound? Go for it!

For GMs:

-Low-Prep Gaming: Generators for everything from quests to items, dungeons, enemies and more let you come up with campaigns on the fly. All of the tables for each generator are laid out conveniently and designed to resolve with one throw of the dice.

-Compatible with OSR Modules: Pretty much any any adventure whose NPCs use HD in their stat blocks you can run using the Exodus System.

-Upcoming Support: We've got lots of material in the pipeline. New monsters, new quests, and more.

For Publishers:

-SRD Support: This game is part of a bundle that includes the game rules in a .DOCX file for easy hacking. Just add your own setting!

-Easy NPC Stat Blocks: No need to calculate that birdman's "Use Rope" skill. NPC blocks are compact and take seconds to write up.

-Genre-Free: Use this setting to support anything from giant mecha to medieval pulp and anything in between.

Another thing I would suggest (besides bookmarks) is providing either a printer-friendly version, or else adding layers so we could turn off the ink-hogging layers (such at the page borders) before printing. Thanks :)

I put bookmarks into the file. They're not showing up. I've made sure to check "enable bookmarks". I'm looking into this now. The SRD is a printer-friendly file. I need to update a bit of the content, though.

That shouldn't be right. If you already paid 6.99 for the main book, and the total price of the bundle is 6.99, you should get everything else in it for free. Are you logged into your account? The one you used to buy this book?

Looks cool, and I can't wait to play this. I'm confused on one thing. Are the SRD and the core rule book supposed to be identical except the last 2 pages?
Also, I get the same blocks instead of text on my galaxy S5, but it works great on PC.
Thanks.

The SRD (once I updated it), is going to have the same text as the core book. It's for publishers or people who want to print at home. Right now it's missing a couple tables, plus the last few pages, yeah. I added the PRINT file of this book as a download. It's larger, but it uses images as the pages, which means no fonts to deal with.

Hi, I have a problem viewing the pdf on my phone and tablet. My phone is an iPhone 7 Plus and the tablet is the Ipad 2nd Gen. Is there any way to fix it? Thanks!

When did you download the file? Also, what program are you using to view them? I have been reading about how Apple is bad with certain fonts. To counter this problem I'm going to make the Print Version of this PDF available once I compile it. That file actually uses JPEGs for the pages. You can't search or select text, but you also shouldn't have text issues.

Is this at all related to the Exodus RPG from Glutton Creeper games? If it's not, this seems like a very confusing name to put on your new game system ... because your email announcement definitely made me think that you were announcing a new version of that game.

No, sorry, this is not that. I hadn't even heard of that game before I came out with this one. This is a new version of the plaintext SRD that I put out. That version is for people to hack for their own games, and this is a nicer-looking one with layout and fantastic artwork. It is also going to be in print in a couple weeks

Exodus is also on DTRPG, and has been out for quite a while :-}
Probably a good "best practice" to search places like this for the game system name you plan to use. Not sure if Exodus is still in active development, though. But it could still cause on-going confusion... which could become a trademark issue, since they hold a trademark for it.

I am having the same font issue using Adobe Reader on an Samsung S8+; I have over 400 titles on here and never had an issue before.? Looking forward to checking this title out when I get this sorted. I've been playing for 38 years and have a library of OSR modules to experiment with.

I am sorry that you're having this problem. I just checked on my phone and it's working as intended for me. Can I ask what model of phone and what software are you using to view it? I'm using a Samsung Galaxy and on my computer I used Acrobat Reader. Please do let me know how this turns out for you.

I believe it may be an issue of a missing font. Copying the text into any other program seems to show the text as intended. I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S7 using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
What font was used in the document?

Garamond for the headings, QuickExpress for the character sheets and sidebars and Gentium Book for the main text.

The full-size preview took a while to come up, but it's working now, and I like what I'm seeing so far.

And yes, please add bookmarks. They turn a pdf that's cumbersome to read into something user-friendly.

Hi there, the full-size preview isn't working but the quick preview reveals massive borders and slender blocks of text. This looks pretty light on for content for the price... Half the page count and half the price perhaps?
Customer avatar
Jacob R June 10, 2018 12:50 am UTC
PUBLISHER
Yeah, not sure about the full-size preview. I've got it checked and it just isn't showing up. As ar as content goes, that's about standard page of text. I've done the word count.

Would definitely appreciate it, even for small PDFs being able to quickly skip to relevant sections is helpful.

I will say though, I'm liking the character creation concept so far!

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.
