The Explorer combines the activities of an adventurer, an explorer, and a cartographer.
The Explorer is expected to be always engaged in the activity of pushing back his or her boundaries of the known world, and mapping them out for others. Maps drawn can be uploaded to the SCE site for others to follow, offering the Explorer the chance to truly delve into the unknown and bring back to civilization knowledge of the frontier. The Explorer should be tough, capable, independent, but also intellectual and observant.
Common classes for Explorers would be rangers or rogues in the traditional RPG mode, or any class that allows solo adventuring, concealment, or other abilities involved in exploration. The Hunter class from World of Warcraft is a good example, as is the rogue of Everquest 2, but any class can be an Explorer, so long as the primary activity of the player is concerned with actual exploration. This is different from the Traveler, who is expected to be mainly passing through areas that are known. The Explorer can achieve fame by producing maps of high quality regarding places not easily explored.
