Yix: Sepulchure's undead minions are crawling all over the city, trying to fight their way to Balthar and the Energy Orb.
Yix: I had hoped that undead would keep the Cyklons busy enough for you to slip past them...
Yix: ...But I was wrong.
Yix: At least we knew what to expect from the cyklons. We can't fight a battle on two fronts, <Character>.
Yix: We need information on Sepulchure's plans and troop movements, and I think I know just how to get it...
Yix: For the past few years we've been working on a project we call the Magic Eye.
Yix: It's a machine that can see images, then transmit them through the aether and we can view them.
Yix: We view these images from a seperate location AS THEY ARE HAPPENING on a viewing device that we're calling a Far-a-vision!
Yix: Isn't that brilliant?!
<Character>: Oh, like a crystal ball!
Yix: Well, yes...
Yix: ...I suppose...
Yix: ...I suppose you could think of it like that...
<Character>: It sounds EXACTLY like that.
<Character>: Or a Magic Mirror. It sounds like that too.
Yix: FINE, YES! ANYWAY...
Yix: In the beginning the Magic Eyes were HUGE and bulky... nearly too large to move.
<Character>: That's funny, most crystal balls can fit in one hand.
Yix: Stop interrupting...
Yix: It wasn't very interesting seeing what was happening in the next room on a tiny screen when you could just walk in there...
<Character>: ...Or look into a...
Yix: RECENTLY... *glare*
Yix: ...the team has greatly reduced the size of the Magic Eye. Now it is barely noticable.
Yix: Gaining entrance into Sepulchure's flying fortress would be impossible...
Yix: ...but we have spotted a flying eye roost at the top of one of the towers.
Yix: If we can get you up there with the Magic Eye, then you can attach it to one of the flying eyeballs sleeping in the roost.
Yix: We would have one of Sepulchure's own flying eyes spying for us and no one would even know it!
Yix: It would also be the perfect field test for the new smaller Micro-Magic Eye!
<Character>: So you want to get me on top of the flying dracolich castle, without being noticed...
<Character>: Then you want me to slip a spy-machine onto a sleeping flying eye... ALSO without being noticed.
<Character>: Then escape? Unnoticed?
Yix: Hm? OH YES! Escape... that's part of the plan too.
<Character>: Do I even want to know how you plan on getting me up there?
Yix: ...... No, probably not.
<Character>: Explain once more why I'm being shot out of a cannon.
Pachelbel: Because our catapult is having some bugs worked out of it by a researcher named Will E. Kaiotea.
Pachelbel: ... and if we used a rocket, we'd have to either ram you into the castle or detonate the rocket to get you to your target.
Pachelbel: This method is considered your safest bet.
<Character>: Being shot out of a cannon is safest... got it.
Pachelbel: Ok Yix, light the fuse!
Yix: Fuse lit, retreating to a safe distance.
<Character>: That's comforting.
Pachelbel: A few more seconds and you'll be soaring through the air.. the first human to fly!
Pachelbel: The world will never forget what you did here today, <Character>!
<Character>: That's what I'm afraid of.
*3... 2... 1... Blast Off!* *BLAM*
*A few hours later...*
Pachelbel: That was an amazing success, <Character>!
<Character>: I missed Sepulchure's castle ENTIRELY...
<Character>: I landed in the Doomwood swamp and had to fight my way past lagoon goons to get back to a gryphon...
<Character>: Explain how that was a success.
Pachelbel: It was a learning experience!
<Character>: ... And what did you learn?
Pachelbel: To use less blasting powder and to equip you with an emergency parachute.
<Character>: Is this idea going to work?
Pachelbel: Sure it is... Light the fuse, Yix.
Yix: FIRE IN THE HOLE!
Pachelbel: ...once we get the trajectory right. We should only need to fire you three more times before we get the kinks worked out.
<Character>: WHAT? 3 more times?!? You mean, you're not going to get me up there on this try?
Pachelbel: HAHA! Don't be silly. We've never done this before... we need to calibrate the...
<Character>: GET ME OUTTA THIS THING!
Pachelbel: Oops, here comes the fuse. Good luck, <Character>! Fly! Soar like the eagle!
<Character>: Wait until I get out of this cannon! I'll make you SORE like the...
Pachelbel: Hey Yix, we lucked out. It looks like he made it this time!
Yix: We're SO good!
*After an unknown amount of time spent unconcious...*
<Character>: Blatharg lithmpule moffub foop... (Stars surround your character's head)
<Character>: ... No more badgers, please. I'm full.
<Character>: Ugh! (Stars disappear)
<Character>: ... I guess I made it.
<Character>: I hope I'm on the right floor, at least.
<Character>: Better get moving. The less time I spend here the better.
*Your Character sees Mother Eyeball and two Eyeballs*
<Character>: Holy Mother of Eyeballs!
EXTREME - To Battle!
<Character>: Looks like I lucked out!
<Character>: None of the other eyes seem to have woken up...
<Character>: Now all I have to do is slip this...
<Character>: ... on one of these guys...
<Character>: ...and... Voila!
<Character>: This? This is the greatly reduced in size "MICRO-magic eye"?
<Character>: Well, too late to complain now. I'm sure that noone will notice.
<Character>: I'd better jump before any of these eyes wake up!
<Character>: I sure hope gnomish parachutes work better than their cannons do.
*Your character is seen dropping from the Dracolich Castle and flying towards the ground*
<Character>: They don't work any better!
