With the help of Famas getting into F.U.N.K.Y Town proved no challenge. Meeting Dinkel Fizzlespark was not as easy as the party was far from the only ones desiring to meet him. They struck a deal with Fizzlesparks secretary to gave a meeting "legitimately" arranged in exchange for a participation badge from an infamous underground arena called night hub.
Laus tavern is a simple establishment but under its floor it houses Nighthub, a gigantic arena/disco where brave souls fight illusory battles for the entertainment if others. To get what they came here for the party only had to enter a fight on any difficulty, win or lose. They instead entered and (narrowly) won everything.
After claiming their prizes and have had a meeting with Fizzlespark arranged the party had a bit of downtime. Items of high value was sold and bought and Yindy got in contact with the secret network to which he now was a less esteemed member due to his past failings.
When meeting Dinkel Fizzlespark it was reviled to the party that the vial of liquid life was a key part of a secret project Fizzlespark had already sunken way too much of F.U.N.K.Y Towns resources into.
While he did not have any riches to reward the party with he instead offered to let them take part in this project. Dinkel Fizzlesparks reputation as a leader of G.E.A.R pretty much hung on the success of this project so a few more eyes keeping watch would not hurt.
The party was introduced to Warrick the gnome scientist and his bodyguard Mano. The purpose of the project was to create a near unstoppable force of mechanic warriors that G.E.A.R would be able to control remotely in the fight against the Ashfolk.
That was unfortunately not how it turned out.
When Warrick was finished and any unforeseen interference had been dealt with the mechanical warriors seemed to be working a little too well, alive even. Warrick revealed to the party that his intentions never were to create a controlled army but instead create a form of artificial life. According to Warrick more death is not the solution but that when the forged were brought up and ready to face the world they would prove a valuable ally. With the flip of some switches Warrick, Mano and the forged was transported away from F.U.N.K.Y Town leaving the party with nothing but the regard that Dinkel Fizzlespark would one day forgive him.
The party took this whole revelation pretty well if you exclude Lotag who in fury began breaking lab equipment. Warrick had told the party that they might want to discreetly leave F.U.N.K.Y Town in order to avoid Fizzlesparks potential wrath, a suggestion which immediately was thrown out the window as Lotag sought Fizzlespark out and told him what happened.
After the party made sure to Dinkel that they were not to blame for what had transpired they left to gather themselves and leave F.U.N.K.Y Town. After some shopping and finding Famas who had been in mortal danger the entire time the party boarded the Loveboat, Warrick private airship and left for the neverending mountain with the intention to find a lost Anakalathai artifact called Skyripper.
