Yix: I'm glad that you're here, <Character>. I will not rest until our city is ours again.
Yix: With your help, we'll win Popsprocket back from those robotic monsters yet!
Yix: Oh good! You have questions! Ask anything that you want!
Yix: I am Yix, acting High Technocrat of Popsprocket.
Yix: Our normal High Technocrat has fled the town along with most of the other residents and researchers.
Yix: So have the other 37 people ahead of me in the chain of command...
Yix: Actually, I'm the head of maintenance normally but this is my home and I won't abandon it!
Yix: I'm not much of a fighter but I know every project underway in Popsprocket.
Yix: ... And if one of the nozzles is clogged in the soup machines, I'm the gnome for the job!
Yix: You've never seen a gnome before? What do you do with your time?
Yix: Gnomes are similar to dwarves physically... we're a little shorter and not as stocky, but our brains couldn't work more differently.
Yix: Gnomes are impossibly curious. Naturally inquisitive minds make us excellent researchers, engineers and inventors.
Yix: Sadly our curiosity tends to lead a lot of us to... unusual ends. Did you know that more than 70% of all gnomes die in mechanical explosions?
Yix: Popsprocket is our main city in this part of Lore but gnomes aren't afraid of traveling. We have camps and towns all over Lore.
Yix: We may not be the tallest race but you'll find that most of us are as loyal and fearless as we are curious!
Yix: You're almost always in good company if you have a gnome for a friend.
Yix: Popsprocket is the main gnomish city in this part of the world. It is a center for research, scientific and technomagical study.
Yix: Most of the residents are gnomes but we are open to all races who wish to further the cause of understanding.
Yix: Not too long ago we had a human inventor studying us but he turned his back on us when he dedicated his life to dentistry.
Yix: You may wonder why the city is flying. Well, the Aeris Battlespire came to us wen they wanted to become a floating city.
Yix: A team of researchers found that heating Ahzite ore gives us anti-gravity properties... but they went a little overboard.
Yix: Now we have to keep Popsprocket chained down or we'll fly off into space. Wouldn't that be fun?! But we're not prepared yet.
Yix: Mechagius Balthar... that weasel! He was a low level researcher here in town only a few weeks ago.
Yix: He was doing grunt work for Section 13, mapping the old steam tunnels that worm their way through Popsprocket...
Yix: Suddenly he starts making these robotic minions that he calls his Cyklon Army. These machines are WAY out of this league.
Yix: Personally, I believe that he found the long lost Elemental Orb of Energy.
Yix: The legends say that it was found when Popsprocket was built on the remains of an ancient Guardian Tower.
Yix: Anyway... with the power of the Energy Orb who knows what kind of calamity that boltbrain might cause!
Yix: The day that I sent you the letter asking for your help a few flying eyeballs were seen around town.
Yix: I can't say for sure who was behind these eyeballs, but if Sepulchure is looking for that orb too...
Yix: ...Then this situation could be even more dire than I first thought. We need to get to work!
Yix: A working knowledge of gnomish magitech will take lots of studying, <Character>.
Yix: When you're ready to become a Technomancer, I will be proud to have you use some of my inventions. But I must warn you...
Yix: This armor will require a certain level of training before you can fully unlock it's potential. If you aren't at least level 30, train more, then come back.
Yix: Remember that the confarctulator needs to be in the ON position or the armor won't work!
Yix: Like I always say... "Home is where your 6/13ths Heavy Gauge Wrench is."
Yix: Ok, your home town has been reset to Popsprocket.
Lowe's Housing Shop
Lowe: Good day! Welcome to Lowe's Housing Shop! How may I help you?
Lowe: We gnomes are known for our ingenuity! I bet you'll find things here you can't find anywhere else!
Lowe: You can't find mana-powered lavalamps in Falconreach, now can you?
Lowe: Nope, shop with gnomes and you'll find one-of-a-kind items and bargains!
Lowe: Cyklons, bah! Who knew robots could cause so much trouble? They're supposed to be USEFUL.
Airheart: Hi there! I almost have the navitron working on the mechagryphon, but that's why gnomes invented parachutes! Where do you want to go? - Activates Gryphon Flightmaster.
Gnix’s Weapon Shop
Gnix: Welcome to my weapon shop. I don't have much but I'll see you anything you see.
Gnix: My name is Gnix. I've lived here in Popsprocket all my life and I'm not leaving.
Gnix: I'll never forget the day that I woke up and tried to make toast... my toaster attacked me. That was the start of all this.
Gnix: Ever since then, we've been fighting a losing battle for our town.
Gnix: But as long as there is an gear left turning, I'll protect it from those monsters!
Gnix: I've heard that some of the robots are fighting with some undead warriors on the other side of the city.
Sweeny's Exclusive DragonLord Salon and Spa
Sweeny: Hi! Welcome to Sweeny's Exclusive DragonLord Salon and Spa!
Sweeny: If you need the fibrous protein growing out of your scalp trimmed, we can do it!
Sweeny: My little gadget here, the Trimmer of Dermis Detrius, or T.O.D.D., will only cut the hair of DragonLords though. It's very picky.
The Copper Teakettle
Trixi: Welcome to the Copper Teakettle, Popsprocket's finest (and only) Inn!
Trixi: Your potions have been refilled. Don't worry, I made sure the bottle was never used to hold oil or grease!
Trixi: I just got back from a trip to the edge of the island.
Trixi: We Popsprocket gnomes love a bit of fly fishing and since the rebellion began we haven't had much time to relax.
Trixi: We're so glad you decided to help us! We can really use the skills of a <Class> like you.
Trixi: While you're here, why don't you take the time to relax. Grab a copy of Gearhead Digest and lounge by the fire in the boiler room.
Trixi: You want to get back to Falconreach? That's easy! Just make your way back to Yix, then continue to the left until you see the MechaGryphon.
Trixi: Popsprocket is an excellent choice for a hometown! Would you like to make it yours?
