Must be updated to reflect Escott Institute training

Explorers venture into unknown territory to find out what’s there. They must be adaptable and tough if they want to get home and tell anybody what they’ve discovered. This template is for a planetary explorer whose skills are optimized for travel and survival in hostile environments. Explorers who spend most of their time aboard spacecraft should use the Astronaut template instead. Scientist-explorers who wish to perform detailed studies of their new finds should use the Scientist template.

Some explorers venture into regions with intelligent inhabitants, and so must be experts in establishing peaceful contact and learning to communicate with aliens. They use the “Contact Specialist” lens below.
