"The planet Sarmahalos III is a non-aligned agricultural world in the Sonora sector. There are no
major industries there other than farming. For thousands of years the people of that world have
wondered at the strange alien spire atop a mountain that overlooks their primary population
center. This spire has a long spiral staircase on the outside of it leading upward. There is no
known way to enter the spire other than by ascending to the top and lowering oneself down into
it. No person who has ever done this has ever returned."
