The dead are rising from their graves, demons walk the earth and people are scared out of their minds. Where blades and bullets fail, however, science is ready to step up to the plate for the future of mankind. ExorSystems, IncTM offers the tools, the training and the know-how you need to fight the darkness and still pull down a paycheck. If you plan on spending most of your time stalking every unnatural horror that creeps, slithers, swims or flies you ought to at least get decent pay and benefits out of the deal. ExorSystems, IncTM is here to offer you that opportunity in exchange for franchise fees and a meager percentage off the top.

ExorSystems, IncTM, a new option for Modern-Era d20 Gaming
Monsters don't carry credit cards.
For players used to hauling off carts of loot from adventures, a modern game can be quite a change of pace. In a traditional fantasy game the coin of the realm is universal. Monsters store their cash in treasure chests and sacks. The reward for adventuring is tangible and obvious. In the modern world things don't work that way. Our money is tied up in credit, checking accounts and investments. Most monsters have little regard for money in the modern sense and even those that do will only have a handful of currency on them. Even if, by some miracle, the villain of a campaign has credit cards or blank checks on him any player character that attempts to exploit these resources would be guilty of fraud or theft. ExorSystems IncTM presents an alternate reward model. In ExorSystems, IncTM monster hunting is a service you can charge for.
Instead of stalking in the shadows and hunting monsters in the dark the heroes of ExorSystems, IncTM are paid professionals. They have the high-tech tools, the corporate resources and the marketing clout required to bring the ghosts, ghouls and goblins of the world to their knees, all with a money-back guarantee.
