Adventure #3: Temple of Toma Thule
The Away Team quickly assembles in the shuttle bay and takes the shuttle down to the surface. The captain deemed it more prudent to keep the Starhawk in orbit in case the Vesk showed up, even though this temple was sitting in the middle of a plain and there was plenty of room to land the ship.

Dropping down to the planet from orbit is routine even though there are six sky tunnels that lead off the planet. Only six across the entire surface of the world meant that they were quite far apart. None of the terminuses were near the temple, though.

As with the previous temple, the entrance is at the top of the step pyramid. There's just no hill to climb to get to it.

You land the shuttle about 50 yards away... not too close, but not so far away that you can't reach it quickly if you have to.

As the shuttle lands and Revonoss does the post flight check to make sure its ready he sends the drone ahead while the rest of the team disembarks to scan the area around the temple as he turns to Phelar.

"You going to be okay lad?"

Phelar looked to Revonoss and nodded gently. "I'll be okay. I feel weird though, I do not know if this is my first time being on another world, second time and where you found me was the first, or if I have been on many." She said as she cocked her head to the side, looking around the landscape with curious eyes.

He smiles gives her a pat on the shoulder and as the engines hum dies out and the ship is safely parked he starts to unbuckle and ready to see what the drone found and how the others are faring.

"Well If you do not remember i say it doesn't count. So go look at your first new planet."

"If you don't remember, then this qualifies as your first world. Or second, since you were on the other," Sol answers.

"What worries me is if we find another you in this temple!"

She smiled to Revonoss and nodded. Seeing the first world she could remember, other then where she started, sounded good.

Then she looked to Sol, considering then words said for a moment about his worries. "What worries me, is not if there is another me there, but if some or all of my memories are there. What if there is something in them, I don't like?"

"You worry to much kid. When and if your memories catch up with you its the time to deal with them. And as we like you as a blank slate you don't have to worry there is a monster in there somewhere as it would have reared its head already if its our nature. And all other stuff might just be unpleasant but nothing we cant take care of together. Come let us go."

"I think what he's trying to say," Soneau said as she joined the group, "is that whatever memories you recover, they aren't going to change your fundamental personality. That only happens when you get possessed by some other creature or entity."

"Nice creatures don't possess you, so you don't have to worry about that. If there are any memories for you to recover, you're not going to turn out to be a mass murderer or an evil warlord or an insane clown. You're still going to be you... you'll just know more than you do right now."

She smiles to them all. "Well, lets see whats here then."

Then she looks around. "Imagine what scientists could learn from here. The tubes going from planet to planet themselves are such an anomaly that they could spend decades on them and still have so much to learn." She said, changing the topic as a way to deal with the topic of possible memories being here.

As Revonoss scans the surrounding area, he's a bit surprised that he doesn't pick up any indications of technology. There are no energy readings, no metals detected. There are faint traces of magic, and, surprise, he finds ley lines crossing the planet, both in the sky and through the ground. The temple appears to be at the convergence of two overhead ley lines as well as two ground lines.

Additionally, he picks up a network of underground tunnels.

Meanwhile, Phelar can see that there are different symbols carved into the steps and risers of the step pyramid. They are written in Terran. She doesn't know Terran, but she recognizes it as such.

"Hey, do any of you guys know Terran?" Phelar said as she stepped closer to the runes, examining them more closely.
