There was never a bone in the explorer's body that would be able to resist the call of discovery of the unknown.Kinsey Starchaser had found it.The entrance to the legendary hidden temple on Kurah.The planet itself had been tricky enough to land on un-detected.Vong made up the main population.And the Outer Rim meshed with Wild Space.
Even with the presence of the Outer Rim Coaltion - nothing was ever safe.
The girl took a breath upon the precipice of a large hole cut away from the rocky-earth.Fingers tightened around the line and gave it one last tug.Her pebble-drone booped next to her.

A bemoaning whistle.
"Don't be such a worry bolt.I'll be back up before you know it."Fingers lightly wrapped against the top of the droid's round head before boots stepped away from solid ground and hugged around the rope as she lowered herself into the slumbering chamber below.
Vong, treasure, pirates, friends, foes?Kinsey didn't know what lay below but she was sure gonna find out.
