Explorers' primary mission takes place far away from the station. In general, explorers are dispatched to investigate distant regions and planets, or even travel to other places in space-time via the gateway. They will typically be required to encounter danger and face extraterrestrial threats in the course of their job.


Decide where you want to go. Normally the pathfinder will take this trouble off your hands, however if one doesn't turn up this task will fall to you.

The first thing you will need are people. Most teams should find success with a set up close to this. Smaller teams

Leader- you will be hearding cats, people on seeing a giant spider do one of three things: flight, fight, or ssd. The Leader should be the person who focuses on the long term misson and keeping everyone geared towards the same goal.

2 Medic- Ideally the feild medicl, less ideally real medical staff. Or an intern with real medkits if left with no choice. Sometimes you will find surgery tables you can use to do feild surgery. Don't, just because they are can doesn't mean it's a good idea.

3 Guard. Preferably another explorer, idealy with the phaser carbine and a sheild.

4 Engineer. Preferable a real engineer. A good one should be able to change the way you can defend and attack yourself. A bad one will only open doors. It's considered poor form to open your own locked doors and set up powernets, only do this if no station side engineers want to come.

5 tourist. A player not used to what happens in exploration, while not needed someone who hasn't seen everything pokeing around is fun to wacth.


Explorer suit. A geen stalker like suit with no slower down. It has a hood and give decent protection against anything you'll find. Expect space. You'll need a void suit for that.

Explorer void suit. The Explorer's suit space proof big brother. Slower but more amoured. However not too well amoured. And breaks if it takes enought damage. Oh did we mention you can't put bandages on while wearing this. At least it offers weilding protection for your eyes

Explorer gas mask. It's a gas mask. A bit more old fassioned than the normal glass faced ones.

FM head set. A spawn item that works as a longwave radio that goes in an ear slot. Sometimes it makes static, repeat your message if this happens.

GPS. Tells you where you are and where your team mates are. Practily needs to find people

Explorer belt. Lets you store your gun, your knife, your catalouger, and other tools. 5 slots it may be worth brining a real tool belt if you need a full set of tools.

Flare box. Gives light via fire, can be thrown after being lit to brigthen lighter area. Keep out of airlocks to avoid burning the planet down.

liquid (protien) ration packs. Food that can be eatten with a voidsuit and gas mask on. Very useful to restore lost blood.

Frontier phaser/phaser carbine. A small pistol with 8 lethal shots (3 more than the normal e-pistol) useless on station. Unless you have warden access, oh you can crank it to recharge it on the feild. It also fits in most weapon cell rechargeing points. make all other weapons useless.

Plasteel machette. A big knife with it's own holster. Useful to hurt hostiles and not hurt team mates.

Explorer jumpsuit. Another spawn item

Catalouger. The one way to get IC information from things. Sometimes they even stay still long enough for you to scan them. Spiders however will try to eat you while scanning. Points can be redemed for somewhat cool tech in the vender. Use this if you can, but remeber this is a HRP setting. Don't trade your life for a few points

Plasteel knife. A weaker machette that fits in your boots.


The explorer's main job function is to explore, locate any devices or artifacts of interest, make contact with any indigenous life, and generally make new discoveries in the interest of science and advancing knowledge. Most commonaly the indigenous life is a big spider that wants you dead. Lucky for you

WIP exploration guide.

You should be familiar with Standard Operating Procedure with regards to away missions, and make sure you follow the directions of the Pathfinder

It is important to treat it as a similar thing. A quick soloution to this is to use a ship full or spiders rather than a THE ship full of spiders.

For some reason instead of puting ghost or creatre of things players aren't ment to know the names of the game gives you one. Such as faithless and shadekin. It's a line between ooc and ic that is very blurred at the moment.

Weaponry and You

you are permitted to carry weapons to further your job as necessary, but only to and from the shuttle or gateway. Security is within their legal right to arrest you for carrying a holstered weapon randomly about the station. But not if you are going outside or transporting them to your department.

Always rember as soon as you pull the trigger there's no such thing as friendly bullet/torpeado/laser. They will hurt the first thing that stops it. Sometimes it will go past your target and keep going until it hits a wall. beams and bullets will keep going until they are stopped. Always becareful for hurting a teammate, lasers don't have a projectile speed as are the least likely to hurt allies. However in tight enviroments if a person can jump infront of your shot they WILL jump infront of it. Normally trying to shoot the target themselves.

Department weapons

Phasers- Theese make almost ever weapon useless unless you find a void cell. This recharges a shot much faster than the Advanced Engergy Gun, with the "downside" of needing both hands to recharge. It's the size of a pistol but unlike e-pistols has 8 shots instead of 5. Has a high and low power shot mode

Holdout phasers- a smaller phaser. 3 lethal shots but it's also the size a soda can and fits in webbing. It also has a low power mode and taser mode.

Anything else tends to upset other players. The phaser is so good in the rule it makes other weapons next to useless. To add to this while you will often find bolt action and hunting rifles they aren't practical to use yourself, and sec really doesn't like other people having guns.
