LOTHT Renewed EP: The Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli
« on: December 01, 2009, 12:15:22 PM »
This is an episode of my project, LOTHT: Renewed. If you have questions or complaints, go to the center of it all:

Season 1, Episode 2: The Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli

[The camera maneuvers thru a jungle, and then stops at Olmec.]
>>Olmec: Legends of The Hidden Temple!
[The camera twists its way thru the Temple, showing the temple rooms]
>>Olmec: With Your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!
[Kirk comes in thru the temple stairs]
>>Kirk: Thank you! Thank you very much! Thank you, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are filled with lots of treasures that're protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards. Only Olmec knows about each of the treasures in his Temple. Which one are gonna hear about today?
>>Olmec: The legend of the Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli.
>> Kirk: Oh! The Useless Treasure of the Viking Chief! Well, the legend is set, and one of these 6 teams will have a chance to retrieve the treasure...
[camera panes to each of the teams in order]
>> Kirk: Will it be...
The Red Jaguars? [the brown-haired boy & the medium blonde girl applaud along]
The Blue Barracudas? [the light-blond boy & the dark blonde girl applaud along]
The Green Monkeys? [the dark-haired boy & the brown-haired girl applaud along]
The Orange Iguanas? [the Asian boy & the blonde girl applaud along]
The Purple Parrots? [the brown-haired boy & the strawberry-blonde girl applaud along]
or The Silver Sankes? [the dark-haired boy & the champagne blonde girl applaud along]

>>Kirk: They're gonna have to pass thru some pretty tough, physical and mental tests, and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec's Temple. But 1st, they must cross the Moat, and Olmec's gonna tell 'em how they have to do it today.
>>Olmec: Before you hang the remains of an ancient columnnade. When Kirk gives the signal, both of you must grab onto the first platform and swing to the next one. Then, continue your way across the Moat. If either of you falls, leaves one player on the previous platform, or if a knee touches the platform, you must both go back and start again. When you have reached the other side, jump off, run over and hit the gong!
[Kirk rings the Silver Snakes' gong]
>>Olmec: The 1st 4 teams to ring their gongs will go on to the next round!
>>Kirk: Alright! Teams, are you ready?
>>Teams: YEAH!!!!
>>Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?
>>Olmec: This rock is ready to roll!
>>Kirk: Okay, teams! On your mark, get set, GO!!!
[The teams all swing onto the first platform, Green & Silver take the lead, while the others have some difficulties, Orange is first to get onto the last one and jump off and ring the gong, while the Blue Barracudas get to the 3rd one, Purple finishes and rings in 2nd, Blue & Silver swing onto the last one, while Green is getting to the final one, Silver comes off and rings their gong next, Red gets to the last one and jumps off and rings their gong last]
>>Kirk: That's it! We have our 4 teams right here! Silver Snakes, they had some trouble at the start, but they kept their bearings all the way thru! Goin' onto the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes! And the Purple Parrots! And the Orange Iguanas! And the Red Jaguars! The Green Monkeys & the  Blue Barracudas gave it a great effort, too. They're not going away empty-handed, we've got a great gift for 'em, and here's what it is!
[Robbie, Janine, Austin & Rory Ann will be getting $50 gift certificates to Nick Arcade.]

[The teams are all standing at the top of the Steps of Knowledge]
>>Kirk: As we continue our quest, it's now time for Olmec to tell us about this Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli. But teams, pay attention 'cause your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to the Temple.

>>Olmec: The most famous emperor of the Aztecs in ancient Mexico was Acamapichtli. He was said to be the first tlatoani, or the ruler. Legend has it that the pyramid at Chichen Itza was built by him. When the pyramid was finished, Acampichtli was furious. "Master builder," shouted the ruler, "You disgraced me! I mean gray?! That is not the color of the Aztecs! You'd better change the pyramid from the inside out or I'll do away with you!" The master builder went home and scrambled to save himself from execution. "A puzzle... no, a plethora of his treasures... double no... that's it! A mosaic mural honoring his highness!" The next day, the mastre builder and the building crew crafted the mosaic dedicated to Acamapichtli, and when the king arrived, he was delighted. "Thank you for honoring me! I offer you my necklace as an apology for dishonoring me." And the master builder kept the necklace until he died. Years later, the Necklace made its way to the Temple! Your task is to find the Golden Necklace and bring it back here!
[camera fades back to Kirk]
>>Kirk: Thanks, Olmec. So, tell us... Where's the Golden Necklace?
>>Olmec: The Golden Necklace can be found in the Quicksand Bog.
[camera zooms in on the Necklace under the Bog's slide, then fades back to Kirk]
>>Kirk: Okay, teams. You're now standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec's gonna ask you a question. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. If you're right, you'll move a step down. But if you're wrong or run outta time, I'll give the other teams a chance to answer. The 1st 2 teams to make it to the bottom step will make it one step closer to olmec's Temple. Olmec, we're now ready for your 1st question.

>>Olmec: Was Acamapichtli a Navajo, Apache or a Nahuatl?
[the Purple Parrot girl rings in and says "Nahuatl"]
>>Olmec: That is correct!
[the Purple Parrots go down a step]
>>Kirk: Okay! They're doing good, Olmec, next question.
>>Olmec: Did Acamapichtli begin his reign in--
[the Purple Parrot girl rings in and says "1376"]
>>Olmec: That is correct!
[the Purple Parrots move down a step]
>>Kirk: Alright! Now the Purple Parrots are now just a step away from the Temple Games. Next question, Olmec.
>>Olmec: Was the name for an Aztec ruler an--
[the Purple Parrots stomp in and yell "Tlatoani!"]
>>Olmec: That is coorrect!
[the Purple Parrots step down to the last step]
>>Kirk: We have our 1st team going onto the Temple Games! They're the Purple Parrots! Now, we need one more team; who's it gonna be: the Silver Snakes, the Orange Iguanas or the Red Jaguars? Next question.
>>Olmec: Was the pyramid built in which of these states: Aguascalientes, Chihuahua or Veracruz?
[the Orange Iguana girl rings in and yells "Veracruz!"]
>>Olmec: That's correct!
[the Orange Iguanas move a step down]
>>Kirk: Orange Iguanas're making a comeback! Still time for the Red Jaguars and the Silver Snakes to catch up. Next question, Olmec.
>>Olmec: Did he reign for--
[the Orange Iguana boy rings in and yells "19 years!"]
>>Olmec: That is correct!
[the Orange Iguanas move a step down]
>>Kirk: Great job! Now, Orange Iguanas are just 1 step away from the Temple Games. It's now anybody's game, next question.
>>Olmec: Which of these seas borders Mexico to the northeast--
[the Orange Iguana boy rings in and yells "Carribean!"]
>>Olmec: That is correct!
[the Orange Iguanas step down to the final step]
>>Kirk: We have our 2 teams that're gonna go head to head right here! They're the Purple Parrots and the Orange Iguanas! The Red Jaguars and the Silver Snakes gave it a gallant effort too. They're not going away empty-handed, here's what we have for them:
[Travis, Christine, Mark & Molly will be getting a copy of Nicktoons: Battle For Volcanic Island on Wii.]
>>Kirk: These 2 teams are gonna battle it out for the right to enter Olmec's Temple, and they're gonna do it right after this!
[the camera fades to zooming thru the bottom rooms to the Quicksand Bog and stops on the slide while the pendant joins together for commercial break]

[the camera is on the trampoline game equipment and then zooms out to show the contestants while the pendant logo splits]
>>Kirk: Welcome back to legends! Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest! But, before we get started, let's meet our 2 teams here. On the Orange Iguanas, we have Eryn. How old are you, Eryn?
>>Eryn: 14.
>>Kirk: It says here that you play the trombone in your school orchestra. How d'you do that?
>>Eryn: Well, I've been doing it since 6th grade and I've been admired for my mad trombone skills.
>>Kirk: Wow! Hopefully you can make music in the games! Now, we've got Alex, and how old're you, Alex?
>>Alex: 13.
>>Kirk: Now, Alex, it says here that you wanna be a middle school teacher. Why do you wanna do that?
>>Alex: I like to tutor, and I hope I can mold young minds.
>>Kirk: Oh, let's see if you can teach a lesson in the Temple Games; let's hear it for the Orange Iguanas!
[the audience applauds for Alex and Eryn]
>>Kirk: But, we shouldn't forget about the Purple Parrots. Now, on Purple, we have Tiffany. How old are ya, Tiff?
>>Tiffany: 14.
>>Kirk: It says that you love to collect postcards. Tell me how you got into that.
>>Tiffany: Well, I like the cute little pictures on the postcards, and I felt collecting them would be cool.
>>Kirk: How many d'you have?
>>Tiffany: Over 500.
>>Kirk: We'll see if you can collect in these games. Alright, you're Dylan. How old are you, Dylan?
>>Dylan: 15.
>>Kirk: It says here that you play soccer as a goalkeeper. How long have you done it?
>>Dylan: I started 3 years ago when my dad started taking me to the local agmes, and I became interested in being one.
>>Kirk: Let's see if you can score some goals in the Temple Games; let's hear it for the Purple Parrots!
[the audience applauds for Dylan & Tiffany]
>>Kirk: Okay, girls, go get ready for the 2nd game, guys, you can stay here and get ready for the 1st game, and I'm gonna tell ya what'll happen here. In the Temple Games, these teams will be competing to win Pendants of Life. The winning team will need the Pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way Olmec?s Temple. There are 3 Temple Games, and Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #1.

>>Olmec: Often as a kid, Acamapichtli competed in an ancient Mayan game called ringball, which involved throwing balls thru a ring in order to win. Now, you will do the same thing, except on a larger scale! Before stands an ancient Mayan fortress, which you'll have to win ringball with. When Kirk gives the signal, grab the 1st ball, launch yourself to the netting, and throw the ball up the hole. Once you're on the 2nd level, do the same thing and continue until you reach the top. The 1st team to throw 2 balls thru the rings wins!
>>Kirk: Looks like it's gonna be a big ringball game here. Let's set 60 seconds on the clock. On your mark, get set, GO!!!!
[Alex & Dylan jump and launch themselves using the trampolines to get thru the next level, they both throw the balls up, Dylan starts having trouble throwing the ball to the last level while Alex gets to the final one and throws the 2 balls down, ending the game with 39 seconds]
>>Kirk: That's it! Orange Iguanas kept it quick and accurate all the way, while the Purple Parrots had more trouble. Orange got to the top first, giving them a half pendant of life!
[the audience applauds]
>>Kirk: Don't worry, Purple Parrots. You can catch up in this next game 'cause it's worth a half-pendant. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2.
>>Olmec: The pyramid that was built had an inside with brilliant colored mosaics. Now, you must match the mosaic tile colors with the 6 colors. There's Blue, Green, Purple, Orange, Yellow and Red. When Kirk gives the signal, crawl to the first peephole and grab a mosaic color. If it matches, come back and drop it in your bin. The first team to match the most colors at the end of 60 seconds wins!
>>Kirk: Looks like we're gonna have a lot of color coding in here! Set the clock for 60 seconds...
[0:60 appears on the bottom-right hand corner of the screen]
>>Kirk: On your mark, get set, GO!!
[Eryn & Tiffany crawl into the 1st peephole, Eryn finds a green tile while Tiffany finds a blue tile and one that matches it; she then returns to her bin, Eryn finds a red tile and a yellow one in the next peephole, she finds a non-matching brown tile on her next try, and returns to her bin; Tiffany gets her 4th one with 0:25 left, Eyn gets her 5th one 7 seconds later; the audience counts down from 10; the clock explodes to indicate time's up]
>>Kirk: Oh, wow! What a Temple Game! Let's see how many they got. The Purple Parrots had 1, 2, 3, 4 colors; the Orange Iguanas had 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 colors! The Orange Iguanas get another half Pendant of Life!
[the audience applauds]
>>Kirk: It's 1 pendant for Orange, Purple has yet to score. We now go to the 3rd and final game, which is worth a full pendant. Olmec, tell us about Temple Game 3.
>>Olmec: When the construction for the pyramid ended, the builders had to exit the pyramid. You and your partner are chained together, and now you must exit the pyramid as well. When Kirk gives the signal, maneuver yourselves along the wall until you reach the slot and your partner can pass thru. The first team to get to the slot, or the team that's further along wins.
>>Kirk: It's anybody's game and whoever wins goes to the Temple. Let's set 60 seconds on the clock. On your mark, get set, go!
[The teams move along the wall and move thru the metal loops. Purple begins having trouble on the 3rd loop, while Orange makes it to the final loop and passes thru with 22 seconds]
>>Kirk: Okay, we have a winner! Orange Iguanas finished well before the Purple Parrots could, that gives 'em a full pendant, making it 2 pendants, and the Orange Iguanas are goin' into the Temple!
[The Orange Iguanas hug and high-ten]
>>Kirk: Purple Parrots gave it a gallant effort as well. They're not going away empty-handed, here's what we got for them.
[Dylan & Tiffany will be receiving a copy of SpongeBob's Absorbing Favorites on DVD]
>>Kirk: We'll see if the Orange Iguanas can make it thru Olmec's Temple, and retreive that Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli, and we're gonna figure it out right after this!
[the camera zooms in on the ladder in the Bog and then fades to commercial break]

[the camera is on the 2nd king in the Tomb while the pendant splits]
>>Kirk: Welcome back to Legends! The Orange Iguanas have proven themselves worthy and have earned the right to enter Olmec's Temple. But first, Olmec's gonna give them some information to help 'em retreive the Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli!
>>Olmec: You could start by running up the stairs to the Crypt! Grab the book from the skeletons, and pass into the Pit of the Pendulum. Knock over the column, and climb into the King's Storeroom! Smash the clay pots to find the key, that will lead you into the Chamber?of the Sacred Markers. Match the symbols on the right, to those on the left, and pass into the Rooom? of the Ancient Warriors! Place yourself in the correct armor, and open the door to the SHRINE of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue and you may be headed toward the Room? of the Secret Password. Find the tablet with the correct inscription, and shout it out to open the door to the Pharaoh's Secret Passage. Slide down the tunnel to the Quicksand Bog, where you could smash through to the Dark Forest? but beware the Temple Guards that may inhabit the treeeeees! Find the key in the tree and you'll enter? the Jester's Court! Press yourself against the correct wall painting, and you'll gain entry to the Tomb of the
Headless Kiiiiiings! Pull the vines to release their bones, and attach the
missing skull to its proper king! Then, race through the pit, CLIMB through
the Ledges, rrrrrrace down the STAIRS and back through the Temple Gate! The choices are yours and yours ALONE! You won 2 pendants in the Temple Games. Who's going first?
>>Alex: I am.
>>Olmec: Very well, Alex! When Kirk gives the signal, you'll race through the gates into the Temple and make your way toward the Useless Treasure. Hidden inside the Temple are Temple Guards assigned to protect three specific rooms. You can trade your Pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you're caught without a Pendant, you'll be taken out of the Temple? and then it'll be Eryn's turn to enter and try her luck. If you can reach the Golden Necklace, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the Golden Necklace of Acamapichtli in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded? and here's how:
[for just getting into the Temple, they'll win a Behringer Metallien electric guitar, which can play various chords and has a USB port that plugs into your computer, all from Behringer.]
[If they grab the Necklace within 3 minutes, they'll also win a Specialized mountain bike. Get on a real mountain bike with a Specialized Shockrod, delivering real supension buns designed for kids. With an Airway helmet, you're ready to tackle the toughest trails, from Specialized.]
[If they can bring the Necklace out of the Temple before 3 minutes're up, they'll be getting a San Francisco getaway! They'll stay at San Francisco for a week and visit the local wharf, the Wax Museum and see the Aquarium at Bay, all at San Francisco.]
>>Kirk: Guitar, bicycle and trip to San Francisco, sounds good. Let's see if they can get it. Mouthpieces in. Olmec, lower your gate!
[Olmec hums and lowers his gate and then his lights go off.]
>>Kirk: Put 3 minutes on the clock. On your mark, get set, GO!!!
[Alex races into the Temple towards the Crypt. He grabs the 3rd skeleton and climbs down to the Ledges, where he crawls to the Pit, knocks down the column and heads into the Tomb, where he encounters the 1st guard with 2:24, pulls all the vines the 1st king works and he head up into the Chamber, where he is removed by the 2nd guard with 1:58 left; Eryn races in and follows his path and matches up all the markers and heads into the Room of the Ancient Warriors, where she tries the 1st one and heads into the Storeroom with 1:26, smashes 2 pots until she realizes her mistake and returns to the Room of the Ancient Warriors and tries the last 2 suits of armor and races into the Shrine with 0:31, and assembles the Monkey in a pretty slow fashion, time expires as she jams the head on the Monkey]
>>Kirk: She got caught in the Storeroom, but she made up great time and she was only 2 rooms away. They get the guitar; I know they had a great time, so did I; we gotta get outta here, we'll see you next time for another Legend of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!
[the credit starts rolling, showing several panoramic shots of the Temple and is on the Shrine-Forest where the 2007 Nickelodeon logo on the bottom part of the screen appears]
[shows Stone Stanley logo]
[Legends of the Hidden Temple was recorded in front of a live studio audience at Nickelodeon Studios in Universal Studios, Florida.]

Temple Run Summary
Episode 2: The Golden Necklace of Acampichtli

Season: 1
Layout: 1
Result: Failed acquisition
Time Remaining: n/a
Team: Orange Iguanas
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Quicksand Bog


I think this was the first ever episode of Renewed, and the producers  wanted FAR to much outta the players. The layout was just plain downright brutal for such an awesome team. Both players were forced to traverse thru the rooms in the central layout. Eryn was the only one who ran into a dead-end in the Storeroom. Even though the Chamber-Storeroom passage was open, neither one realized it was available. On a side note, the Temple Games were extremely similar to the Useless Treasure of the Viking Chief, meaning that they were filmed on the same day. The Chamber was terribly lit and that caused the team's downfall. Oh, well.

Trivia & Records:
This was the 2nd time that the Orange Iguanas entered the Temple overall, and this marked the first loss.

Not a bad read. I only have one question, though: if this was the first episode of Renewed, wouldn't it mark the firsti time the Orange Iguanas entered the Temple, as opposed to the 2nd? :?

Other than that, it's pretty good, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next one.

The path they took is awfully reminiscent of the path in The Upside Down Compass of Henry Hudson.
