"This book will allow you to hire trimps who can create map fragments for you!"

Explorer is the second job that the player will unlock with an increasing hiring cost per each Explorer owned. This makes it advisable to not ever fire Explorers, as the player doesn't get any resources back from firing them.

It can be useful to buy more Explorers than needed for creating maps due to the fact that Gateway costs fragments.

The price of unlocking the Explorer job is 50K Science and 5 map fragments.
