Location: Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad, Gnome?
???: A little help here, please?
Balthar: Hey... THANKS!
Balthar: No really, they didn't even have a toi- er, let's just say, thanks for opening the door.
???: I wasn't here at first, I was in my lab with my experiments. Then things started to go VERY wrong.
???: My experiments started waking up! And then, well, they kind of started taking over. And started with me.
Balthar: *chuckle* That's me!
Balthar: Oh, no. No no no. Not bad! Just... curious.
Balthar: You see, I'd been mapping the lower levels of Popsprocket when I found this glowing orb buried in the rubble of an old building.
Balthar: Exactly. But I didn't know that yet. So I took it back to my lab (two turns to the left and up a level, past the Doo-hickey Demolisher).
Balthar: I started doing- well, nevermind the details, they're very technical. Lets just say once I was done, my inanimate Cyklons were ALIVE!
Balthar: Something like that. Anyways... once the energy from the Orb had saturated the metal, they were alive.
Balthar: And FAR stronger than I was! But... they couldn't use the orb themselves! So they put this Movement Incapacitor v3.14 on me.
Balthar: I do! It's hidden in a hole back in my cell. The cyklons all rushed off a bit ago to fight the togriders and left me with it.
Balthar: ... And so that's how I got the Energy Orb and the Cyklons took over.
Balthar: While I was in my cell, I thought of multiple ways I could have prevented this.
Balthar: I REALLY didn't mean to have this happen. Or become a prisoner. That cell was small. And dark. And wet.
