The Heart Room / Re: Where were the temple guards?
« on: June 04, 2011, 03:16:25 AM »
For 'The Golden Goblet of Atilla the Hun', you can hear the sound of the Dark Forest Door opening in the Jester's Court.

Likewise, you can hear the sound of the King's Storeroom door opening in the Jester's Court for the 'Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid'.

It's possible that a guard was in each of the rooms I mentioned for each run.

I always thought the sound was the same no matter what door opened.  I thought it was just a matter of seeing which door opened.  Obviously that's difficult since the lights go out, but you would be able to see incoming light at the top of the room or you would be able to make out the color difference for the side doors.

By the way, I should have clarified this, but what I was thinking for the Snakeskin Boots was that the door up from the Laser Light Room could have opened up an alternate path through the central column and through the King's Storeroom instead of through the bottom floor.  The problem is it's really hard to see whether that door leading up did or didn't open.

My notes for these:

THE SHRIVELED HAND OF EFOUA:
Like I've said before for many episodes, it should be possible to run into all three guards, especially considering the team in this episode had two pendants.  The only two options are that the guard was in the Ledges which would force them up into the Crypt or it was in the Dark Forest, although that makes it inevitable they would hit all three guards.  (That is still a possibility since they had two pendants.)

THE  MASK OF THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK:
It could only have been in the Crypt or the Lightning Ball Room.  (They entered the King's Storeroom at the last seconds so the temple guard still would have appeared)  To me, the Lightning Ball Room sounds stupid as an option since the Mine Shaft-Shrine passage opened.

THE GOLDEN GOBLET OF ATTILA THE HUN:
One pretty much had to be in the Ledges for triple capture to be possible.  For the other one, I'm leaning towards the Room of the Secret Password, although I think the Shrine-Mine Shaft door would have opened anyway.

THE LEOPARD-SKIN CLOAK OF ANNIE OAKLEY:
I'm really convinced it was in the Ledges for two reasons.  One, they already went through enough rooms that the Storeroom-Medusa's Lair door should have opened.  Two, if they hit a temple guard in the Ledges, the first player would have been removed in the Laser Light Room, as opposed to one room away, making that simple choice of which room to enter from ultimately decide how difficult the run would be.

THE SNAKESKIN BOOTS OF BILLY THE KID:
The Room of the Secret Password seems like the only possibility, although it seems stupid to me since there should be no incentive to enter that room.  The only other option I can think of is if the door up from the Laser Light Room did open, and to me, that really doesn't seem all that unlikely.

Well, what I'm saying is that if they had the option to not even bother, they'd put the temple guard in the left side tree, that way it still might be able to catch them.  There have been many examples of this.

EDIT: Also, if they do make the key available, they'll put the temple guard in the same tree as the key.

My notes for those:

THE ENORMOUS IRON NOSE RING OF BABE THE OX:
I had the same thoughts as you, but I'm also considering the Observatory for what should be obvious reasons.  Although this episode does point out something potentially important.  Just because the player isn't caught in the Dark Forest doesn't mean there wasn't one in there.  Although unless finding the key is the only option, they usually put the guard in the tree by the breakable stone door so that it can catch them.

THE VERY TALL TURBAN OF AHMED BABA:
No doubt about it.

THE PLUMED HEADDRESS OF COSARARA:
I'm not so sure about that.  When the second player is coming through the Rock Quarry, we can see that the Troubled Bridge-Observatory door is still shut, and considering the path, I'm sure the diagonal Shrine-Mine Shaft passage would have opened, so I'm thinking it was in the Crypt.  The Lightning Ball Room is still a possibility, but a slim one.

My notes for these episodes:  (I really think you were right on with most of these)

THE IMPERIAL PURPLE ROBE OF EMPRESS THEODORA:
Yes, I think it could really only be the Ledges, because as I've said before on some runs, it should be possible to run into all three, and such a path through any of the other rooms seems much too cruel for the players.

THE LUCKY MEDALLION OF ATOCHA:
I disagree with you here.  Obviously, it had to be on the bottom path, but I think it was the Throne Room and the Dark Forest.  As Ty is returning, he runs through the Swamp and the material jiggles around a lot with no indication of a body laying around.  And really, since the artifact was in the corner room, a direct path doesn't seem all that implausible, especially since it does happen in the Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata.  Speaking of which...

THE APPLEWOOD AMULET OF EMILIANO ZAPATA:
Yeah, only the Crypt seems like it, considering that pretty much no doors other than the path they took opened.

THE ELECTRIFIED KEY OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN:
Yeah, definitely had to be the Crypt.

THE LUCKY PILLOW OF ANNIE TAYLOR:
I do think one was in the Crypt, but not the Observatory.  I really don't think they'd be cruel enough to try and do something like that so close to the artifact.  I'm thinking the other one was in the Mine Shaft, because I'm pretty sure in the Shrine, both the Mine Shaft and Viper's Nest doors open, so I doubt they'd bank on them entering TWO completely unnecessary rooms.

I know.  It just reminded me of how many different spellings there are.

Okay, that is hilarious.

I typed in "apanuugpak" in Google and it said, "Did you mean 'snugpak'"

I love how nobody can spell that episode name.  The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak.

Zac Turney was awesome (gotta love them Silver Snakes), but I personally think Gator's run was more impressive, mostly due to the fact that it was a center room artifact.

Awww yeah, Gator.  He was one of the fastest runners AND he has one of the most awesome names I've ever heard of.

yeah, there wasn't a lot to discuss with S2L1, so on we go.

Here's the first half of S2L2:

THE WALKING STICK OF HARRIET TUBMAN:
-Encountered Guards: Throne Room, Shrine of the Silver Monkey, Crypt

THE LOST LOVE LETTER OF CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH:
-Encountered Guards: Throne Room, Medusa's Lair, Shrine of the Silver Monkey

THE DIARY OF DOCTOR LIVINGSTONE:
-Encountered Guards: Throne Room, Dark Forest
-Unencountered Guards:  I have picture evidence that the other guard was in the Ledges. This picture was from Olmec's rundown.

I apologize for the low quality, but you can definitely see the figure down in the area where they hide.



THE BONE NECKLACE OF THE BLACKFEET CHIEF:
-Encountered Guards: Swamp, Dark Forest
-Unencountered Guards: The temple guard could have been in the Crypt or in Medusa's Lair.  All other rooms seem very unlikely as possibilities.  The only reason I'm considering Medusa's Lair is that in the Throne Room, the passage up opens. (It's hard to see, but I'm really thinking that it did.)

THE MUSH POT HAT OF JOHNNY APPLESEED:
-Encountered Guards: Crypt, King's Storeroom
-Unencountered Guards: The only room that seems remotely likely is Medusa's Lair.  They wouldn't put the temple guard in the Ledges, otherwise one would be in both entrance rooms, and the Throne Room, Swamp, and Dark Forest seem too far out of the way of the path they did take.  Also, from the Observatory, the door down to Medusa's Lair opened, so I'm guessing the door from the pit to Medusa's Lair would have opened, but the door from Medusa's Lair to the King's Storeroom would have been locked.

THE CRACKED CROWN OF THE SPANISH KING:
-Encountered Guards: Ledges, Throne Room, Dark Forest

In The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra, the temple guard was DEFINITELY in the Cave of Sighs, and I have not one, but TWO pictures to prove it.

Here's one where we catch a glimpse of him as she is returning with the Bracelet



Not convinced?  Here's one during the credits roll.



Who's awesome?

Alright, I'm ready to move on.

Here's Season 2 Layout 1: (I'm including The Secret Battle Plan of Nathan Hale here)

THE SILVER HORSESHOE OF BUTCH CASSIDY:
-Encountered Guards: Dark Forest
-Unencountered guards: If you notice that while she is returning with the Horseshoe, the doors in the King's Storeroom that the temple guards use is opened.  I'm thinking this is evidence that a temple guard was there, although I have no clue why the door would be open.  Now, since they had a single pendant, at least one guard was avoidable (we can see that two of them were), but it should still be possible to encounter all of them, so in attempt to work out a path that would satisfy this, I can only figure that the other temple guard should be in either the Crypt or the Observatory. (the Shrine is also possible, but seems unlikely)

THE SECRET BATTLE PLAN OF NATHAN HALE:
-Encountered Guards: Crypt, Observatory, King's Storeroom

THE GOLDEN STALLION OF ALI BABA:
-Encountered Guards: Throne Room, Heart Room, Dark Forest

THE SILVER CANNONBALL OF GRANDY NANNY:
-Encountered Guards: Ledges, King's Storeroom, Shrine of the Silver Monkey


Wow, I just realized there isn't a single unencountered guard from episode 42 on until episode 47 (The Diary of Doctor Livingstone

Also, I want to remind you guys to be careful of covering too many episodes too fast.

Please, nobody go any further just yet.  I'm still compiling my information for Season 2.
