Title: Avoiding Temple guards?
Post by: PhantomBPR on June 26, 2006, 01:43:30 PM
In two rooms: The dark forrest and The room of the ancient warriors, there have been situations where a runner does not have to encounter a temple guard to pass on to the next room, so with that in mind, could a team in fact avoid a temple guard?

Well, there was the girl in that season one episode who went through The Mine Shaft into the Tombs of Ancient Kings, only to have the Shaft's guard get her there, so I guess you could say that someone avoided a Guard, at least in that particular room, even if it was only for a few seconds.

Yeah, but the Pendant of Kamehameha was just awkward for the Dungeon Temple Guard.

Well, nicklegends, in his notes for The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe the Ox, one of the trees were moving in The Dark Forest, & Joel evaded that Temple Guard, since he made it out still with his pendant.

There was a dodging of sorts in The Iron Nose Ring of Babe the Ox, where a tree should have caught Joel as he raced through the room. If it would have been any other contestant intending to break through the wall, the guard would have caught him or her for sure.

There was also that episode where the contestant dove head-first under the limbs of the tree, just in case. I wonder if that would have counted as a dodge should there have been a temple guard in the trees he evaded?

No, I'm saying you could totally avoid being captured in either of the above listed rooms.

SWEET! STP (Same Time Post)!!!!! First one on the forums? We'll make a mental note of that.

Yeah, that was classic in The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask. If the wall wouldn't break & was locked???

Congratulations to the both of us. :) I'm counting these posts from now on... "1."

If the wall wouldn't break, his neck would. Of course, the wall is made up of foam bricks, so it couldn't ever be that bad.

It was not possible to avoid guards in the Room of the Ancient Warriors.  When a guard was there, he would always be behind the suit of armor that opened the door.  If this was not the case, theoretically, it could have happened.  In the Dark Forest, yes it was possible and did happen once (as previously mentioned.  However, it would depend on the production staff's readiness with the robotics (for the arms).  There were times where the arms moved long before grabbing somebody.

Well Irish (The Bent Shaving Pan of Jedediah Smith) almost avoided the Temple Guard. She tried to quickly run out of the armor, like she almost knew there would be a Temple Guard there, but he still got her.

Actually, according to a recent interview from http://legendsofthehiddentemple.piczo.com (http://http://legendsofthehiddentemple.piczo.com) (The Shrine of the Silver Monkey), there was actually a crewsman sealed in the tree. I thought it was robotics too before I read the interview.

Ouch, having to stay sealed in that tree must have stunk big time.  That guy had to have spent hours in there on taping days.  I could understand based on that how it would smell like ''3 year old B.O.,'' as was stated in said interview.  This also sounds a little like a cost cutting program, in order to avoid using expensive robotics.

I always thought a crewmember just pulled a string to control the arms.

Well, it just plain wouldn't make sense for the trees to be robotic.... first of all, sometimes you can see through the tree hole when no one is in there. When there's a temple spirit, you can not see through. Also, sometimes you can tell that they don't put their arms all the way in and the tree limbs bend because the crew memebers's hands don't reach all the way to the end of the limb.

I remember in the Smashed Printing Plates of Frederick Douglass when Jason made it to the Dark Forest, the tree was flailing its arms all over the place and Jason was trying to avoid them...but it still got him. :roll:

Haha, I hate it when it's so obvious there is a Temple Guard in the trees (when the arms are flying around) & the players don't even try to go through the wall when they have the option to. Tsk tsk. Yeah, I always thought there was a person in the trees too.

Yeah! I've always known about the man in the trees. Robotics and strings can always break down, so to have a person in there is the smartest option.

I thought this too as well but I was watching some of the temple runs and in The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible the temple guard is in the first suit of armor yet you can clearly see that the door to the kings storeroom is closed when she runs out of time heading into the 3rd suit of armor.

How do you know they didn't just program it so that a different suit opened the door than had the temple guard?

The only way to avoid a guard in the Room of the Ancient Warriors would be to go into the room and back out to where you came from.  It's easy as that.

Well it's unclear one way or the other, but i just began to consider that after the last time i saw the Discarded Seal Temple Run.  After all, that wouldn't be the only time a door opened way to late (like the Medusa's Lair-Laser Light Room door in "The Missing Eye of David.")

Well... I'm back (not that anyone cares, but final exams consumed my life!) but I think it would be possible to avoid a Cave of Sighs temple guard. For example a contestant could enter the Room of the Three Gargoyles, go down, and enter the Pit of Despair from the top entrance and avoid the temple guard hidden in the bottom corner. For a contestant to be caught, the temple guard would have to climb the Cave himself!

I always thought that happened in Robin and Marian's Ladder. Ericka was forced down into the Cave of Sighs from the Royal Gong Room and stayed to the top of the of the Cave and the same with Jeremy. Considering the team only entered five rooms the only two rooms that could've had a temple guard would've been the Cave or Observatory.

That's true about the Cave of Sighs, but if they really wanted to catch a player, they could, like in the Dried Apple Half episode where the team was caught entering from the Crypt. (Granted that was in the Ledges, but same idea.)

actually, in the Room of the Ancient Warriors, if you just pull down the arm things without getting into the armor, you might be able to escape the temple guards

i have a feeling it was designed so that that couldn't be done, so that they had to enter the armor to pull down the levers.

An interesting point, but I think they opened the door by remote control, meaning that if there was supposed to be a guard there, he would get his prey before the door possibly opens.

That could be very possible
