Post by: Olmec on May 19, 2007, 10:16:26 AM
Episode 2: Eris?s Apple of Discord

*the camera zooms in on an ancient lush jungle, the palms are moving away as an elephant is heard*

*all the palms are gone, showing Olmec*

Olmec: Legends of the Hidden Temple. With your guide? Kirk Fogg!

*Kirk is shown slidding down a zipline & jumping off into the usual area*

Kirk: Thank you everyone. Thank you Olmec. Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?

Olmec: Eris?s Apple of Discord

Kirk: Eris?s Apple of Discord!

*Kirk sneaks in a ?Stone Head of the Evil King? face*

Kirk: Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Parchment. Will it be *camera zooms into each team as they cheer & the usual* The Red Jaguars? The Blue Barracudas? The Green Monkeys? The Orange Iguanas? The Purple Parrots? Or the Silver Snakes? They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests, and in the end, only one team will have the right to enter Olmec?s temple, but first they have to cross the moat, and Olmec will tell us how they?ll have to do it today.

Olmec: Each team has an oversized Indian turban in the water. On go, when both players wrap around the turban, it will slowly start to move across the Moat. If you fall, both you & your partner will have to go back to the start & get on the turban again. The first for teams to get across & ring the gong will move onto the next round.

Kirk: Alright, teams are you ready?!

*the teams cheer*

Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?!

Olmec: Let?s rock!

Kirk: On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*each team steps on the turban, but the Red Jaguars capsize right away*

*the other five teams start to spin along the track, but on a sharp spin, Purple Parrots & Silver Snakes fall off*

*Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, & Orange Iguanas all get across & ring the gongs at the same time*

*all the other teams can?t get past the halfway mark before falling*

*finally, Silver Snakes get across & ring the gong (the fog is completely gone long before this point)*

Kirk: Wow, I?m sure that was harder than expected! The Silver Snakes made their way through the Moat, & will be going to the Steps of Knowledge! Along with the Orange Iguanas! The Green Monkeys! & the Blue Barracudas! Red Jaguars & Purple Parrots made a great effort, & won?t be going away empty handed. Olmec, tell them their prize.

*Olmec explains the prize*

*scene changes to a dry set of four teams on the top of the Steps of Knowledge*

Kirk: As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about Eris?s Apple of Discord. Bur before we get started, pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec?s Temple.

Olmec: In Greek mythology, the goddess of strife & discord was Eris, with her most famous tale being involved in the Trojan War. All of the gods and goddesses in Olympus, including Hera, Athena, & Aphrodite, have been invited to celebrate the forced wedding of Peleus & Thetis, who would later become the parents of Achilles. Eris, however, was the only one not invited.

Eris: Those gods & goddesses think they?re too good for me. *disgust* Well fine! I?ll just have to mess with their heads a little.

Olmec: And with that, she found a Golden Apple of Discord & tossed it into the party. The apple was inscribed with the word ?Kallisti?, which means ?to the fairest?. Knowing that most of the goddesses think they?re the fairest, she purposely threw the apple in the party to provoke them to quarrel about who is the fairest. When Zeus found this out, he brought the goddesses over to Paris, prince of Troy, to decide who was the fairest. Hera offered Paris political power, Athena promised Paris skills in battle, & Aphrodite tempted Paris with the heart of the most beautiful woman, Helen of Troy. Paris chose Aphrodite, therefore dooming his own city. Aphrodite kept Eris?s Apple of Discord, but now it has made its way to the Temple! Your goal is to find Eris?s Apple of Discord, & bring it back here!

Kirk: Olmec, tell us where the Apple is.

Olmec: Eris?s Apple of Discord could be found in the The Arachnid?s Territory!

Kirk: OK. Teams: you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question about today?s legend. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. Go ahead, stomp on it!

*Green Monkeys hit the step*

Kirk: OK, Green Monkeys, since you rang in first, you would be able to answer. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next level. If you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m going to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams to make it to the bottom level *Kirk runs down there* will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. Olmec, we are now ready for the first question.

Olmec: Was Eris a goddess in: Norse mythology, Chinese mythology, or Greek mytho-

*Silver Snakes stomp down*

Silver Snakes: Greek!

Olmec: That is correct.

*Silver Snakes move down a step*

Olmec: Was Eris the goddess of strife and: discord, harmony, or the harvest?

*Blue Barracudas stomp on the step*

Blue Barracudas: Harv-

Olmec: Incorrect!

*Orange Iguanas stomp down*

Orange Iguanas: Discord.

Olmec: That is correct>

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Olmec: Was Peleus getting married to: Athena, Persephone, or Thetis?

*Orange Iguanas ring in*

Orange Iguanas: Thetis!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Kirk: Orange Iguanas only need one more correct answer to move onto the Temple Games.

Olmec: Was the son of Thetis & Peleus: Paris, Helen of Troy, or Achilles?

*Blue Barracudas ring in*

Blue Barracudas: Helen of T-

Olmec: That is INCORRECT!

*Orange Iguanas ring in*

Orange Iguanas: Achilles!

Olmec: That is correct.

*Orange Iguanas move down to the bottom*

Kirk: Orange Iguanas are moving on to the Temple Games! Only one more team can make it. Blue Barracudas & Green Monkeys, you guys can still catch up!

Olmec: The Golden Apple of Discord said ?To the fairest one? when translated. Did it originally say: Kallisti, Calypso, or Calcutta?

*Blue Barracudas ring in*

Blue Barracudas: Calypso!

Olmec: Incorrect!

*Green Monkeys ring in*

Green Monkeys: Kallisti!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Green Monkeys move down a step*

Olmec: The three goddesses that fought over the Apple of Discord were Aphrodite, Athena, &: Persephone, Demeter, or Hera?

*Green Monkeys step on the marker*

Green Monkeys: Hera!

Olmec: That is correct.

*Green Monkeys move down a step*

Kirk: One more step & the Green Monkeys move on to the Temple Games.

Olmec: Who did Zeus bring the goddesses to in order to decide who is the fairest: Helen or Troy, Paris, or Achilles?

*Blue Barracudas ring in*

Blue Barracudas: Achilles!

Olmec: Incorrect!

*Silver Snakes stomp down*

Silver Snakes: Paris!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Silver Snakes move down*

Kirk: Green Monkeys & Silver Snakes are on the second to bottom step! This is really close.

Olmec: Did Paris choose: Aphrodite, Hera, or Athena?

*Green Monkeys ring in*

Green Monkeys: Athena!

Olmec: Incorrect!

*Silver Snakes stomp down right after that*

Silver Snakes: Aphrodite!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Silver Snakes hop down to the bottom step, where the Orange Iguanas have been*

Kirk: Good job guys! That was a really close match. Blue Barracudas, come down here. You gave it a great effort & you won?t be going away empty handed. *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Orange Iguanas & Silver Snakes are present* These two teams will be going head to head in the Temple Games, to fight to enter Olmec?s Temple, right after this!

Post by: Olmec on May 19, 2007, 10:18:04 AM
Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. But before we get started, let?s find out a little about our teams. Let?s give it up for Ethan & Madison on the Orange Iguanas! And Jacob & Emma of the Silver Snakes! Now, girls get ready for the first Temple Game, guys get ready for the second. Okay, go get ready for the Temple Games, I?m going to explain what?s gonna happen. Teams are competing in temple games to win: Pendants of Life. *shows two pendants* They?re going to need those pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games. Olmec, tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: Golden Apples can?t be found everywhere, as Eris found out. It takes a lot to find a tree that grows Golden Apples, & now you?re going to be climbing one. On go, run into your structure, jump on the trampoline, & pull yourself up to the next level. Once you get to the top, search for the Golden Apple with ?Kallisti? engraved into it, grab it, & make your way down. The first person to come down to the bottom with their engraved Apple of Discord wins.

Kirk: On your marks? get set? GO!

*Ethan & Jacob start to jump up & down on the trampolines*

*both are having problems getting up to the first layer, but Ethan eventually gets up with :43 left*

*Ethan starts to try to get to the second layer, but Jacob comes right up with him with :38 left*

*both are continuing to have problems, but they both get to the top layer with :25 left*

*by now, they get the hang of it & Ethan gets to the apple pit with :21 left, Jacob with :18*

*both of them are searching in the pit of apples & they can?t find the Golden Apple when time runs out*

Kirk: That?s it, times up. Neither Ethan nor Jacob came back, but Ethan got to the apple pit first, so Orange Iguanas get the ? Pendant of Life! That?s OK, because Silver Snakes can catch up in the next Temple Game! Olmec, tell us about it.

Olmec: Eris was the only goddess in all of Olympus not to be invited to the celebration. Now, you girls are going to get her into the wedding. Each of you has 3 locked gates & a ring with 6 keys. On go, run to the first gate & unlock it with the correct key. Once you unlock that gate, move onto the next. Each key opens one gate. The first player through all 3 gates wins ? Pendant of Life.

Kirk: On your marks... get set? GO!

*Emma & Madison start to unlock the first gate*

*Emma?s second key does it, so she unlocks the door & runs to the next

*Madison tries all of her keys, but none open*

*Emma starts to try the second lock, when Madison catches up to her with :47 seconds left*

*Emma quickly makes her way through the second gate & she starts to try the four remaining keys on the third lock*

*Emma makes it through the third lock with :25 left, just as Madison gets to the final gate*

Kirk: That?s it! Emma blazed through the gates, gaining the Silver Snakes a ? Pendant of Life! It?s all tied up, so I guess the third Temple Game will decide it!

Olmec: Eris threw the Apple of Discord into the wedding ceremony, & that?s just what you?ll be doing now! One player is hanging from the ceiling, while the other is on the ground. The player on the ground will toss an apple up to the player hanging from the ceiling. Then, they?ll slide across & toss the apple into the basket. The first team to get 3 apples in the basket wins!

Kirk: This is NOT timed, so? on your marks, get set? GO!!!!!!!

*Ethan & Jacob toss apples up to their partners*

*Madison doesn?t catch hers, but Emma does*

*Emma starts to fly along the track & she tosses her apple into the basket, just as Madison catches her apple*

*Emma comes back & catches her second apple, as Madison misses her bucket & goes back*

*Emma lightly tosses another apple into the basket & she is in the same place as Madison*

*both catch their apples & start to fly along the ceiling*

*both toss their apples & make it*

Kirk: That?s it! Stop tossing! Jacob & Emma got 3 apples into the basket first, meaning that Silver Snakes win 1 Pendant of Life! That gives Orange Iguanas ?, Silver Snakes 1 ?, Silver Snakes are going to the Temple! *Jacob & Emma are cheering* Ethan & Madison, you guys played a great game & won?t be going away empty handed, here?s what you?ll win. *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Silver Snakes are present* We're gonna see if the Silver Snakes can retrieve Eris?s Apple of Discord, and we're gonna do it right after this!

Kirk: Welcome back. Emma & Jacob have proven themselves worthy and have earned themselves the right to enter Olmec?s temple. But before we get started, Olmec, can you give the Silver Snakes any clues about your Temple & how to retrieve Eris?s Apple of Discord?

Olmec: You could start off by running up into the Crypt! Pull the book from the skeleton, & you could pass into the Intersection of Tunnels! Crawl through the series of tunnels, & you could make your way up into the Physician?s Lair! Calibrate the scale to the right mark, & a door might open, leading you into the Room of the Mandarin Hand! Curl the fingers around the globe, & you could go into the Room of the Ancient Warriors! Place yourself into the correct suit of armor, & you could go into the Shriiiiine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue & make your way into the Viper?s Nest! Pull the snakes from the jars & climb down into the Mountaineer?s Den! Repel down the rock wall & bust through the wall into the Tomb of the Ancient Kings. Open the slab & find the key leading up, or you could go into the Arachnid?s Territory! Spin the correct spider around the giant web, & a door might open into the Laser Light Room! Unleash the power of the special white laser, & crawl back through the Intersection of Tunnels. Crawl into the Reef & maneuver yourself through the aquatic paradise & back through the Temple Gate! The choices are yours & yours alone! You won two pendants into the Temple. Who is going first?

Jacob: I am!

Olmec: Very well, Jacob! When Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gate into the temple and make your way towards Eris?s Apple. 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 it will be Emma?s turn to try her luck. Hidden inside the Temple is a ? Pendant of Life. If you find it, you get an extra life. If you can reach the artifact, all the doors in the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the artifact within three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded. And here?s how! *Olmec explains three prizes*

Kirk: Jacob says he wants to win! Let?s put three minutes on the clock! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!!!

*Jacob goes up the stairs into the Crypt*

*he tries two books & the door opens*

*he crawls into the Intersection of Tunnels with 2:45 left & finds a tunnel going to the Physician?s Lair*

*he gets out of the tunnel & goes up with 2:33 left*

*he starts to calibrate the scale, but a Temple Guard comes out & he gives the Pendant*

*he takes a while to calibrate the scale, & the doors open*

*he tries to go into the Room of the Ancient Warriors, but the door is locked, so he goes down into the Room of the Mandarin Hand with 2:02 left*

*he curls two fingers, when a Temple Guard takes him out with 1:57 left*

*Emma starts to go up & follows Jacob?s path*

*she gets down into the Room of the Mandarin Hand with 1:34 left*

*she curls the final two fingers, & tries to go into the Room of the Ancient Warriors*

*that door doesn?t open, so she tries to go down, but that doesn?t open either*

*she goes back into the Intersection of Tunnels with 1:10 left*

*she slides down a tunnel to the Ledges door, but realizes that she hasn?t tried the Laser Light Room, so she takes a tunnel straight across there*

*she enters the Laser Light Room with :54 left*

*she tries three blocks & a Temple Guard takes her out with :51 left*

Kirk: Ooh, she was one room away, & the Temple Guard got her! Jacob & Emma did a great job, & they still get one prize. Well, we gotta go, but we?ll see you next time, on Legends of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!

Fan Summary:
Eris's Apple of Discord

Name of Artifact: Eris's Apple of Discord
Season: 1
Layout: 1
Result: Caught by Three Temple Guards
Time Remaining: 0:54
Team: Silver Snakes
Pendants Won: 1 1/2
Location of Artifact: The Arachnid's Territory
Temple Diagram:  

Temple Run Summary: This was a disappointing episode all around. The Steps of Knowledge was just awkward, with the Blue Barracudas's bad answers. But anyway, to the Temple Run. Jacob was alright, but no doors led across in the Physician's Lair, so he went down into the Room of the Mandarin Hand, where he was taken out. Then, Emma came along & tried to get across, but she was forced back into the Intersection of Tunnels. Now, what you might not've seen, was that when Emma was intering back into the Intersection of Tunnels, the door to the Room of the Ancient Warriors opened, meaning... production defect! She went from the Tunnel of Intersections to the Laser Light Room, where she was taken out. The 1/2 Pendant was nowhere to be seen, so the best they could've done was notice the production defect, or just win the Temple Games.

That was REALLY weird! But creative.  The Temple design, I mean.  Good job, and keep up the good work.

Yeah, I was going to have The Laser Light Room be a dead end, much similar to Lost Logbooks of Magellan, thus making her go through Room of the Ancient Warriors, Shrine of SIlver Monkey, etc etc.

It's interesting that all three guards were in the central shaft :wink:

Well, it's not like they haven't been in consecutive rooms before.  In fact, one my theories was that if they had more than 1 Pendant in "The Collar of Davy Crockett," they would've only moved the other Temple Guard into the Room of Fallen Columns, making them have to run into all three as they scaled the central column.

Also forgot to mention, and sorry to bump this, but i have to say great job with the legend and the Temple Games.  i was gonna use this for a Season 2 episode, but i couldn't think of anything, so i replace the idea with another one.  But you did a great job making a legend, nice work!

You sure? i've always seen it written without an "a"? maybe it's a variant.

Also, i just noticed.  It's also partially Kirk's fault that the episode ended with such an outcome? he put too much emphasis on the "further along" rule in the first Temple Game, awarding only the Orange Iguanas a half Pendant whereas the teams should've tied, and it would've given the Silver Snakes 2 full Pendants of Life.
