This section or article references game content that is applicable on the NSS Exodus only.

The following section or article contains information about content, features, or mechanics that are not applicable to all playable maps. You can help by updating it.

This article is about the Exodus jobs. For the Torch jobs, see Torch/Job Guides.


Your Job aboard the NSS Exodus defines what equipment you start with, which areas you can access with ID card, and what you're actually supposed to be doing. Due to new NanoTrasen equal rights laws, you might encounter some interesting new Species working alongside you.

You should also read up about Corporate Regulations, so you know your rights, and Clone Memory Disorder, to know how to act should you happen to die and get cloned. Being unaware of these things is considered very bad form of Roleplay.
