Yix: Popsprocket's defense mechanisms have been engaged, and we REALLY don't want to be around for the transformation!
<Character>: So... really. You don't know what this warning means?
Yix: I don't think we even HAVE a warning system for the Far-a-Vision!
<Character>: So the really hypnotic warning scrolling across the screen?
Yix: Wasn't made by us.
<Character>: Oh. Great. So who...
Yix: We're not really sure.
Mysterious G.: *cough*
<Character>: How did you-?
Yix: He was always the mysterious one. You get used to it.
Mysterious G.: Why are you just standing there? Evacuation Plan FS001235 needs to be put into action. Now!
Yix: But that's only used in case-
Mysterious G.: Where do you think this warning is coming from!?
<Character>: Could someone let ME know where the warning is coming from?
Yix: I didn't even consider this as a possibility!
<Character>: Consider WHAT as a possibility?
Mysterious G.: Our city is... awake.
<Character>: By "awake" you mean?
Mysterious G.: Aware. Angry. So many good synonyms for it, really.
Yix: Or as close to it as makes no difference.
Mysterious G.: Which is why we need to evacuate.
<Character>: But the Energy Orb!
Airheart: Evacuate first, plan later. Go go go!
Kixi: Oh oh! We're going to need to build a NEW city!
Zank: Let's build it underwater this time!
Kixi: No, no! In the air!
Airheart: We already tried that. And look what happened!
Yix: Lets try and save THIS one first, before we construct an entirely new one, hmm?
<Character>: Yix? Not to be repetitive but... the Energy Orb? I really do need to have that.
Yix: Yes, yes. There IS a way to save it.
<Character>: A way that doesn't involve crawling into the sentient city and rooting around in it, right?
Yix: Not exactly. You'll just need to... deactivate Popsprocket.
<Character>: And how do I do that?! It's HUGE!
Simas Prime: ...
Simas Prime: INITIATE SENTIENCE STARTUP MODE A2B2C2.
Simas Prime: CONSCIOUSNESS IMITATOR UNIT zN1z2Nc ONLINE.

Mysterious G.: You have a dragon, don't you?
<Character>: Good point. Using <Dragon>, that'll be no problem. I'll just need to... But. Hmmm. The city did just head into space.
Yix: Yes, yes it did.
<Character>: I am all ready to go and fight your city on my dragon, don't get me wrong. But... how will I breathe up there?
Mysterious G.: Magic!
<Character>: No, really.
Yix: He's right. Magic. Or, rather, magitech. We have a Re-breath-alator. It'll be just the thing to recycle your bad air into good!
<Character>: ... WHY do you have something like that?
Yix: Because sometimes air just isn't breathable. Isn't that right, Gnix?
Gnix: Er, yeah. Like when you're in tunnels under the city and the oil heats up. Smells bad.
<Character>: Right. Ok, anyways. Fighting the city?
Yix: Once you're on your dragon, I'll attach the Re-breath-alator and you'll be good to go.
<Character>: Let's do this.
Summon Dragon and Battle! Popsprocket - equips DragonRider Armor. (DA Required)
Let a DragonLord handle this! - continues to following dialogue.
- Popsprocket Titan Battle! - begins battle with Simas Prime.
- Popsprocket Titan Extreme Battle! - begins battle with Simas Prime X-treme.
- Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
- leave - returns to Popsprocket.
<Character>: With the city deactivated, it should be safe for you all to go back and live on it again, right?
Yix: Yes. If it's any consolation, the Guardian system worked perfectly!
Yix: Except for thinking you were out to harm the Orb. That was a slight mishap in the gear alignment, we think.
<Character>: How reassuring. Then as long as nothing else attacks the city from the back of a flying dracolich, we should be safe.
Mysterious G.: I do not foresee Sepulchure being a problem for us again. Between your might and our magitech, he is no match for us.
Yix: We'll take excellent care of the Orb for you. It will enhance our studies and multiply our output considerably!
Gnix: Just think what we'll be able to build with it!
Kixi: How about a De-Big-ulator! Then everything will be as big as we are!
After half an hour of brainstorming goes by...
<Character>: It sounds like you'll all be just fine, then.
Yix: Thank you for saving our city. Again. You can count on us to keep the Orb for you. We'll keep it away from explosions and corrosive materials.
<Character>: I appreciate that. But it's withstood this much, so I think it'll be safe with you, no matter what you do near it.
