- Learn about Operation: Gnomeregan
We weren't able to achieve everything Operation: Gnomeregan set out to do, but Thermaplugg is on the run and we're closer to home than ever.
Thermaplugg's defeat is a certainty, but that irradiator has bought him time to regroup.
Even now, only the S.A.F.E. teams dare to venture far into the city to search for survivors. Meanwhile, Thermaplugg has sent one of his followers, Crushcog, to distract us and buy time for him to dig in.
On accept, a voiced script event starts, replaying the climax of Operation: Gnomeregan:
- High Tinker Mekkaorque says: We assembled a mighty force and defeated Thermaplugg's servants, fighting our way into the city. But, the usurper Thermaplugg has one last trick up his sleeve...
- High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Take a look at this holotable. I want to show you a bit about Operation: Gnomeregan.
- Mekkatorque walks over and activates the holotable.

- Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: No! No, no, NO!!! I won't allow you to into my kingdom, usurper! I WON'T ALLOW IT!
- Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: Activate the Ultimate Atomic Protection System.
- Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: ...DISINTEGRATE THEM ALL!
- Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: IT'S A TRAP! That's a fully functional irradiator!

- Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Ten minutes? <He laughs> Plenty of time to disarm the device.
- Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Hinkles, hand me that and some . Cogspin, toss me that and a ...
- Thermaplugg's Brag-Bot says: TEN MINUTES?! You left the factory setting on? Give me that controller, you idiot!
- Irradiator 3000 says: *BEEP* Attention. Emergency. You now have ten seconds to reach minimum safe distance.
- Image of High Tinker Mekkatorque says: Whuh-oh! We've got to get out of here! Lapforge, beam us back, quickly!
- The gnomes teleport out shortly before the irradiator explodes and the hologram fades. Mekkatorque steps back, grunting in frustration.
- High Tinker Mekkatorque says: We were forced to retreat. Thermaplugg continues to hide behind the radiation, sending his crony, Crushcog, to harass us here on the surface.
