Tech Priests would not give the time of day to another fleshling if it had nothing to do with anything mechanical, electrical, or remotely linked to the Machine God. However, Explorators seem to be a little more open minded -
An Explorator is an Adeptus Mechanicus Tech-priest who is dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of new worlds and new regions of the galaxy for the Imperium of Man. They act as part adventurer, part warrior and part emissary of the Machine Cult of Mars.
In our game, my Explorator is becoming more and more involved in the mechanical side of things. In our last session, the team were attempting to come up with a plan for there next encounter, while the Explorator was paying no attention and was purely interested in the mechanical arm of one of the NPCs.
What level of devotion to the Machines vs. their expeditions should an Explorator have? For example would he be more interested in the Kroot Homeworld or a control panel?
