Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on December 16, 2006, 04:34:06 PM
Just a few things to explain about The Rediscovery.  From the beginning, I was planning to make an independent fanfic series, rather than just a few episodes to contibute to the Season 4 or Season 5 fics I read when I was first ghosting the forum.  The Rediscovery basically remains the same as the original show, but there are a few subtle differences:

1. I'm not sure if this ever happened in the real show, but if there's friends or close relatives that are a boy and a girl and they audition together, they can choose to go on the same team or different teams on different episodes.
2. All the players’ first names are revealed at the beginning of each episode— their names appear in onscreen and Kirk reads their names as he introduces the teams.
3. Both players on each team are given with a microphone so they can answer at the Steps of Knowledge (in the actual show, only one player per team had a microphone).
4. The Temple Games, if timed, don't always last for 60 seconds— depending on the challenge, they might last for 30, 45, 60, or 90 seconds.
5. In Season 1 only, if one team gets the tiebreaker question wrong, the other automatically wins.
6. There will always be an opportunity to form two full Pendants of Life in each Temple Run— if a team only wins one Pendant in the Temple Games, two half Pendants are hidden in Olmec’s Temple for the second runner to pick up.
7. The third room from the left on the lower floor of the Temple contains three ventilation shafts that run between there and other rooms of the Temple.  A player may slide down to the third-bottom room if he finds one of these shafts and it’s unlocked, but may not enter a shaft from the third-bottom room to go the other way.
Finally, in the first two seasons, the price of each prize package is announced after Dee explains the vacation package, to emphasize the fact that the prizes aren't as crappy now— the episodes I've finished already which feature a team who records a victory give the winning team about 11 or 12 grand in prizes.

The episode guide for all three seasons is below.  Some of the Season 1 episodes share their names with historic figures that were written about in the real show, but that's because I wasn't fully aware of those episodes at the time— I stumbled across this forum before any of the websites which featured a full episode guide.  I've tried to replace the episodes which share their historic figures and/or artifacts with episodes used or planned for use by other writers as best as I could, but I apologize in advance if there are any near-duplicates in the future.

Episode Guide

Here's something about the way The Rediscovery is made.  The format is slightly different from the original show in terms of production. (If anyone watches Lingo on GSN, I've based the production format on that.) The first season is only 20 episodes long, but subsequent seasons consist of a whopping 65 episodes apiece.

Each season after the first consists of 60 regular episodes and then a five-episode Tournament of Champions, and has a sort of environment-related central theme.  Season 2 is the "Winter Season," which is reflected in the "frozen" plants and slightly chilled temperatures on the set.  The Moat is even solid ice for many of the crossings, and many of the Temple rooms are designed to resemble icy regions or at least have relevant objectives.  Olmec is also lit with blue lights in this season rather than the usual red-orange.

Season 3 is the "Tropical Season." The set is lit with more yellow and orange lighting to simulate a jungle during the day rather than at night, and Olmec is lit only by a faint orange light.  As for small changes to the show formula, five episodes are now taped each day, the Temple Run prize values are no longer stated, and the Temple Games feature something new: Pendants of Life in the team colors will appear onscreen during the second and third games to help viewers keep track of teams' scores.

Quote
if a team only wins one Pendant in the Temple Games, two Half-Pendants are randomly placed within Olmec?s Temple.
Why not just hide them a full pendant instead of 2 seperate half pendants? It would be easier to spot and easier on the frontrunner because he or she would have less signaling to do. Overall, it doesn't seem that bad of an idea...its really pretty clever. :wink:

Yeah I suppose, but I already made one where the second runner finds both halves of her Pendant.  Can't change it now.

Quote from: ""The Ancient Warrior""
The prizes aren't too crappy now? the episodes I've finished already which feature a team who records a victory gives the winning team at least 14 grand in prizes.


Unfortunately it's $14,000 worth of Quik.   :mrgreen:

Good work so far, man.  I'm really impressed with all the detail (all contestants' names, etc.) that you put into these episodes.

Thanks.  I meant to make other changes too, but I thought no that's gonna be unfair, but still I think there's just enough difference to make it look like a shiny new version.

Not meaning to double post here, but I want to give you guys the layouts I'm using.  I'm sorry if there's any rooms that share their names with the ones you made up.  Once I put the objectives of each room in, just let me know if the objectives match too and i'll see what I can do to fix it.

All layouts' rooms are given in a counter-clockwise order.  I've also boldfaced any room changes to make it easier to read.

Season 1

Layout I
The Crypt
The Great Chasm— This is actually just like the Pit.  The players can just swing across the gap or jump right down.
The King's Storeroom— In the same place as in Season 3 of the original show.
The Chamber of the Sacred Markers
The Room of the Ancient Warriors (1)— The big difference is that the Temple Guards don't hide behind the armor.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Room of the Secret Password
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Quicksand Bog
The Dark Forest— The trees don't have arms in this version, so this room can't hide a Temple Guard.  Also the green lights've been moved back to the Junction of the Secret Shafts.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts— It's kinda like a Heart Room idea but in place of the Swamp area, and it's green.  If you're coming in from one of the old vents, you can race up a ramp and hit an actuator on a door to go left or right.  There's a raised area near the doors on both sides, and also around the Temple Guard door in the back of the room. (That's right, I installed a Temple Guard door.)
The Tomb of the Headless Kings— I've made this room a little easier too.  There's no ropes or vines, but there's an altar in the front of the room on which the skull is placed.
The Ledges

Layout II
The Vault— There's a big safe covering the Temple Guard door, and you just need to grab one of the six handles of the safe wheel to open doors.
The Great Chasm
The King's Storeroom
The Chamber of the Sacred Markers
The Room of the Ancient Warriors (1)
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Room of the Secret Password
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Quicksand Bog
The Dungeon of the Lone Column— The room has a brown color to it, to paint a picture.  There's a big stone pillar in the middle of the room (alittle bigger than Pit of the Pendulum-size,) and it has a hole in it.  You can reach in to grab the key, or maybe just knocking over the column will open the doors.  You never know.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Tomb of the Headless Kings
The Ledges

Layout III
The Vault
The Great Chasm
The King's Storeroom
The Burial Pit— I moved the magnetic key stuff here, and the room keeps the Chamber of the Sacred Markers wallpaper.  The idea's like a mix of the Treasure Room and the Tomb of the Ancient Kings— you can open the sarcophagus and climb down through it, or use the key inside it on a door.
The Room of the Ancient Warriors (2)— The suits of armor now have a pair of gauntlets attached to each of them.  A Temple Guard could grab the player by sticking his hands in them— though Kirk and Olmec make it look like the armor's possessed by a Temple Spirit.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Room of the Secret Password
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Quicksand Bog
The Chamber of Four Columns— It looks like the Dungeon of the Lone Column except with four Pit of the Pendulum-type columns arranged in a square.  The player just has to knock down all four to open one of the golden doors.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Throne Room— The sweet wall-spinnin' throne like in the Season 2 of the original show.
The Ledges

Layout IV
The Vault
The Great Chasm
The King's Storeroom
The Burial Pit
The Room of the Ancient Warriors (2)
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Room of the Secret Password
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Quicksand Bog
The Switch Inferno— You'll love to see contestants fail miserably at this one.  I've placed somewhere between 20 and 30 actuators all throughout the room, but only one— if any at all— open the golden doors.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Throne Room
The Ledges

Season 2 layouts coming soon

Here's the rest of the layouts. Again, I'm sorry if there's any rooms that share their names with the ones you made up. Just let me know if the objectives match too and i'll see what I can do to fix it.

All layouts' rooms are given in a counter-clockwise order. I've also boldfaced any room changes to make it easier to read.

Season 2

Layout V
The Room of Temple Gongs— Not to be confused with the Room of the Royal Gongs from the actual show.  There's a set of six gongs in the front of the room resembling those at the end of the Moat, and similarly each one's a different color.  You just need to hit the gong that matches your team's color to open the door.
The Great Chasm
The Laser Light Room— A metal column lies in the middle of the room, and there are four rotatable pieces in the column and a dome on top.  Each movable piece has a slightly lighter gray section— it's actually a dimmed light behind a piece of glass.  If a movable piece is in the right position, the light in that section brightens.  And once all four pieces are in the right place, the dome fills with light and the doors open. (Put simply: "Find the right combination to unleash the power of the laser.")
The Burial Pit— Same objective as Season 1, new wallpaper for the center room.  The walls are now a copper brown, with a mystical black pattern on them (more on that later.)
The Knights' Barracks— I haven't taken out anything from the Room of the Ancient Warriors except for the levers in the suits of armor.  There's a sheath jammed into the head of each suit of armor, and a sword in the front of the room.  The sword will fit into any one of the three sheaths, but only one sheath will open the door.  The armor can still be possessed.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Dark Overlook— A tricky one, sure, but a favorite of mine.  It's like taking the Room of Three Torches, blowing out all the lights, and now you have to correctly place all three torches.  Alson the tip of a torch is made of a cylindrical piece of glass containing a lightbulb.  Once a torch is in the correct pedestal, the tip of it will light up.  Correctly placing all three torches will open the door.
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Dungeon— Just like in the real show except for having to use the Pharaoh's Secret Passage to ascend into the room above.
The Switch Inferno— Just like in Season 1, Layout IV.  I've placed 24 actuators all throughout the room (8 per wall), but only one— if any at all— opens the golden doors.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Forbidden Fountain— Well, they put back the altar that was in the Tomb of the Headless Kings, but now there's an aged scales in the room as well.  On the altar are four bowls similar to the one stuck on one side of the scales.  The player needs to place a bowl on the other end of the scales, and if they pick right, the scales tip in the other direction to indicate that the doors are open.
The Crevasse— The Ledges re-painted a light blue.

Layout VI
The Room of Temple Gongs
The Bridge (Not a typo, it's just not called The Troubled Bridge.)
The Laser Light Room
The Dragon's Lair— They hung a big dragon mouth around the door leading up into the Laser Light Room, and leaned four horns on the railing in the front of the room.  Once all four are correctly placed, the mystical pattern on the walls will glow a bright violet and the doors will open.
The Knights' Barracks
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Dark Overlook
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Dungeon
The Switch Inferno
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Crystal Cave— It looks like there was more light blue paint left over for when they made the Crevasse.  The room also looks like it's made of ice and frozen rock, complete with three long stalactites.  The stalactites can be detached from the ceiling, and once the correct one is pulled down the doors will open.
The Mine Shaft— It's actually exactly like the Rock Quarry except for one detail: The number of rocks you need to throw in the bucket keeps changing.
The Crevasse

Layout VII
The Room of Temple Gongs
The Bridge
The Laser Light Room
The Dragon's Lair
The Knights' Barracks
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Planetarium—  This room contains a astronomic model which consists of four colorful spheres and orbital rings.  The player needs to spin the sphere to open the doors leading into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey or the Abandoned Cave.
The Abandoned Cave— The Pharaoh's Secret Passage has been boarded up to add to the look of this room.  There's alot of huge rocks and rubble lying around, and the player just needs to make it to the ladder leading upward into the Planetarium. (The producers cut a door out of the floor of the top corner room before they began filming the first episodes of Season 2.)
The Switch Inferno— The objective is a lot easier now, since there are only 12 actuators rather than 24 like before.
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Crystal Cave
The Mine Shaft
The Crevasse

Layout VIII
The Arctic Antechamber— Three "doorways" containing ice walls (kinda like the rock wall in the Switch Inferno, only thinner and light blue) are located in this room.  The player needs to run through the correct ice wall to advance in the Temple.
The Bridge
The Laser Light Room
The Dragon's Lair
The Knights' Barracks
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Geographer's Study—  A bookshelf is located in the back of the room; there are a lot of atlases and encyclopedias, but only three— the largest atlases, each marked "ACTUATOR" on their spine— can open the door.  The player will need to pull the correct book off the shelf to open the door, but there might be a Temple Guard hiding on the other side of the bookshelf.
The Pharaoh's Secret Passage
The Dungeon— Nothing is different from the room with the same name in Layouts V and VI. (The door directly connecting the upper and lower corner rooms has been made inactive again, too.)
The Switch Inferno
The Junction of the Secret Shafts
The Crystal Cave
The Mine Shaft
The Crevasse

Layout IX
The Arctic Antechamber
The Great Chasm
The Laser Light Room
The Cathedral— A fake stained-glass window is in the center of the room, but a few pieces of the window are missing.  The missing sections are located in the front of the room, and the player must correctly place them all.  Once the window is complete, the mystical pattern on the walls will glow an eerie violet and the doors will open.
The Knights' Barracks

The Geographer's Study

The Arctic Antechamber
The Great Chasm
The Laser Light Room
The Cathedral
The Knights' Barracks

The Dungeon
The Switch Inferno
The Labyrinth— A bunch of new walls have been placed in the room (which looks like this (http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o116/The_Ancient_Warrior/LabyrinthFloorPlan.jpg) from above), so the Junction of the Secret Shafts is actually a bit of a challenge.
The Lost Treasury— The altar is no longer covered in the fake ice and frozen rock, and no more icicles on the ceiling.  But there is a big treasure box right behind the ladder in the room, containing four of the artifacts previous teams failed to reach (specifically: the Missing Log Book of Tenzing Norgay, Helen of Troy's Mystical Mirror, the Stolen Crown of the False Dmitriy and the Melted Lamp of Paul Revere.) The player must place the correct one on the pedestal on the altar to open any doors.
The Crevasse



———————————————————————————————————————
EDIT 12/06/10: For convenience, the Season 3 layouts as well:



Season 3

Layout XI
The Room of the Ancient Masks— And so, the top entrance room returns to a typical upper-left room set up.  It's not much different from the Room of the Three Gargoyles.
The Pit of Despair— Despite being called the "Pit of Despair," this room doesn't quite resemble any of the other rooms by that name.  It's a bit more like the Pit of the Pendulum with thin side ledges on the left and right walls, but two catwalks connect the side ledges of the room.
The Observatory— A shout-out goes to TBK for this room, partly inspired by his Lookout Tower.  A telescope just in front of the ladder in the room has to be used to read writing off of the far wall above the audience, but the writing is actually a simple command that has to be followed rather than shouted out.  At the front of the room are two altars, each with three celestial models on top (on the left, Mercury, Venus and the Sun; on the right, the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter), and the objective involves these in some way.
The Central Dock— Two masts and a crow's nest are located around the room and must be placed in the ship just in front of the ladder leading downwards (it doesn't matter which mast the crow's nest rests on).
The Den of Totem Poles— Think the "stone column" Observatory from Season 2 of the original show, only doubled.  Two totem poles with three faces each are positioned on either side of the ladder leading downwards, and all six faces need to be turned toward the audience.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships— Two graves are positioned in the back of the room where the Temple Guard door would usually be.  In order to enter the Pirate's Cove or Shrine of the Silver Monkey, players have to step on the actuator in the correct grave... at the risk of being grabbed by a Temple Guard-possessed pirate buried in one of the graves.
The Viper's Nest— Almost the same as in the original show, but the third snake jar now hides a key rather than a snake that has to be pulled out.
The Bamboo Forest— Same as the original show, only with the "secret passages" concept added in.
The Lost Treasury— It should be noted that while most of the set has switched to much brighter lighting reminiscent of the original show's opening season, this particular room space in the temple remains very dim to create an atmosphere that matches many of the rooms in this space for Season 3.
The Cave

Layout XII
The Room of the Ancient Masks
The Pit of Despair
The Observatory
The Central Dock
The Den of Totem Poles
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships
The Viper's Nest
The Bamboo Forest
The Cannon Room— The dimmed lighting in this room area throughout the season comes in handy for rooms like this, which requires players to look around for three cannonballs needed to fill the cannon located in the front of the room.
The Cave

Layout XIII (Hawaiian Layout)
The Room of the Ancient Masks
The Coconut Harvest/The Upper Terrace— The Upper Terrace is essentially the same as the catwalk portion of the Pit of Despair, only with added guardrails around the catwalks and side ledges so that a player entering from the Room of the Ancient Masks can only choose the two upper doors and a player coming from the Cave can only choose the bottom one.  Throughout the Coconut Harvest portion of the room are different palm trees with a total of ten coconuts hidden in them— the player need only find five to place in a bucket, but obtaining them may require anything from pulling on vines to searching foliage to climbing the walls to reach the coconuts in the trees.
The Observatory
The Central Reef— This room contains two puzzles.  To go on, a player may need to either pull five fish from a small tank and hook them to the side walls, or solve a three-dimensional coral puzzle surrounding the ladder leading downward.  Square-rings of coral surround the ladder, and the six layers are each covered in protrusions and indents akin to "teeth." If properly turned, all the layers will fit into each other— accomplishing this counts as completing the objective, but only one of the two objectives is the correct one.
The Tiki Village— Two rather large tiki idols are located on either side of the ladder in place of the totem poles, and raised grooves surround them, creating a path.  This path leads to a floor actuator in the back of the room, a distance behind the ladder, and the player needs to push the correct idol on top of the actuator to weigh it down and open any doors.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships
The Viper's Nest
The Bamboo Forest
The Cannon Room
The Cave

Layout XIV
The Room of the Ancient Masks
The Coconut Harvest/The Upper Terrace
The Observatory— The model of Mars, which was suspiciously missing, is now on a pedestal in the middle of the background.  Otherwise, the room remains the same as before.
The Central Reef
The Tiki Village
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships
The Viper's Nest
The Bamboo Forest
The Graverobbers' Hideaway— Several cages, boxes and the like are scattered around the room.  Inside are various weapons, treasures and documents, but players are actually looking for a skull and a grave marker which must both be placed on the front altar.
The Cave

Layout XV
The Room of the Ancient Masks
The Pit of Despair
The Observatory
The Central Dock

The Cave

Layout XVI
The Room of the Ancient Masks
The Pit of Despair
The Observatory
The Central Dock
The Tropical Treasure Trove— Seeing a huge makeover from earlier layouts, this room is now three walls full of plant life and numerous hiding spaces.  Plenty of fruits can be found, but also a large ruby, sapphire and pearl.  Each of these gems fits on only one of the three pedestals scattered around the room, and the correct gem must be placed on its proper pedestal in order for any doors to open.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships
The Viper's Nest
The Bamboo Forest
The Temple Bestiary— Toucans and golden monkeys and crocodiles, oh my! One of each of these animals is located in a cage in this room, but they are not properly arranged.  Players need to rearrange the animals so that each is in its correct cage (five possible combinations, as the default is incorrect) to open a door.
The Cave

Layout XVII (Tournament of Champions II Layout)
The Room of the Ancient Masks
Fragile Falls— This is where the fog machines come in, despite the brighter lighting.  The fog machine in the back of the room, turned on high, resembles a powerful waterfall, which is emphasized by the use of blue and green balls rather than the typical foam blocks in the pit below.  Numerous fallen timbers also litter the bottom portion of the room, and in place of the catwalks are a couple random vines hanging from the ceiling and a rickety bridge which includes multiple breakaway planks.  A player may switch floors in this room.
The Observatory
Medusa's Lair— Players will have to place four snakes rather than two in this brief reappearance of the room.

Trivia
?   Only one player so far has used one of the Secret Shafts? Tiffany, the second runner in ?The Silver Angel Wing of Elizabeth I? (Season 1, Layout I).
?   All three Season 1 teams caught by three Temple Guards took 1? Pendants to Olmec?s Temple.
?   Both Season 1 teams that tied for 1 Pendant in the Temple Games successfully retrieved.their respective artifacts from the Temple.
?   All the Red Jaguar teams that made it to the Temple in Season 1 won 1? Pendants in the Temple Games.
?   The average team took 2 Pendants to the Temple.
?   So far the Green Monkeys are the only team that has not successfully brought an artifact out of the Temple.
?   The only episode so far to feature a four-way tie on the second-to-last Step of Knowledge is "The Holy Ankh of the Egyptian Deity" (Layout III).
?   Rooms that only contained one artifact include the Dungeon of the Lone Column, the Chamber of the Sacred Markers, the Tomb of the Headless Kings, the Burial Pit and the Chamber of Four Columns.  No artifacts were ever hidden in the Dark Forest.
?   Rooms in which a Temple Guard was never encountered include the Dungeon of the Lone Column and the Chamber of Four Columns. (The Dark Forest never hid a Temple Guard, either, but it could not contain one.)
?   The fastest victory to date is "Spear of the Nine Samurai" (Layout II).  Silver Snake Hiromi got all the way to the Room of the Ancient Warriors to grab the Spear, and then made it out with 0:51 left.
?   The quickest capture by three Temple Guards occurred in "The Lost Papyrus Scroll of the Poet Sage" (Layout I).  The second runner Tori met the third Guard in the Quicksand Bog with 0:58 left, and since she had only a half Pendant the game was over.
?   In "The Entrails-Stained Crown of William the Conqueror" (Layout II), you can see the Thorn Crown of Emperor Augustus in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers.
?   In Layout I, the only victories occurred in the two episodes where the artifact was located in the Junction of the Secret Shafts.
?   The frontrunner began in the Crypt in every Temple Run that contained it.
?   The fewest number of rooms entered in any Temple Run, as of today, is five.  This occurred in "The Sacred Quill of Quetzalcoatl" (Layout III), although this run contained a production error? the door from the Throne Room to the Junction of the Secret Shafts did not open until the last few seconds.
?   Only one player has ever entered all the rooms of a particular layout: Ryan, the second runner in "The Right Nostril of the Great Sphinx" (Layout III).  After grabbing the Nostril in the King's Storeroom, he descended into the Burial Pit, jumped down into the Great Chasm, entered the Ledges and then climbed up into the Vault to escape from the Temple and record the win with 5 seconds left.
?   The first solo Temple Run occurred in "The Feathered Headdress of Powhatan" (Layout II).  The Silver Snake, Tico, grabbed the Headdress in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 32 seconds left, but time ran out as he was leaving the Great Chasm.  The first solo victory, however, did not occur until "Henry the Navigator's Missing Maps" (Layout IV).
?   The closest failed acquisition of an artifact occurred in "Helen of Troy's Mystical Mirror" (Layout III).  The second runner Ray slid down the Pharaoh's Secret Passage into the Quicksand Bog with 2 seconds left, but could not grab the Mirror in time.
?   The only Temple Run where the three Temple Guards are in consecutive rooms is "The Jeweled Sword of Charlemagne" (Layout IV).

This season might as well have happened with the amount of detail you've put into everything, from the episodes themselves to charts like these that make them feel that they were real. I've fixed the formatting on the tables you were having trouble with above; hope that helps.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on January 14, 2007, 08:26:58 AM
Speaking of realism, I think it would help you guys pidture it a little better if I told you that The Rediscovery closely resembles Season 2 of the real show.  The set keeps the darker colors of the later seasons, but Olmec has the younger look he kept in the earlier seasons.  The captions and credits use the font from the earlier seasons.  But the only non-Temple layout detail resembling Season 3 would be the team candles at the end of the Moat.

Also, Olmec says The Shrine of the Silver Monkey the way he does early in Season 2 of the real show.  The pronunciations we all like begin in the Layout VI episodes next season.

Guys, don't think I've forgotten about The Rediscovery.  I've been takign a long time to write the Season 2 episodes, and I want to get to Episode 60 (an important spot I'll explain later) before I start posting anything.

The format is basically the same as Season 1, except that Season 1 was an "Intro Season" and Season 2 is the "Winter Season." Which means the decorations include blue-green or dying plants, and in later layouts, a frozen Moat (really just covered in sheets of plastic and filled up with foam blocks and packing peanuts underneath it.)


 Olmec has a different look now, and for his voice, think of the original show's second season.  In Season 2 and later, he explains the Temple Run rules.  And now, at the tiebreaker, if one team gets the question wrong, the other has to get it right to go to the Temple.

I'm skipping around in the Layout VI episodes, just finishing the Temple Run of The Secret Treasure of Phoolan Devi right now.  I know, I need to pick up the pace, but writing all these episodes is turning out to be a tougher challenge than I thought!

I have two questions.

1: Why do you have to write all the episodes before you can release them?

2: Are there going to be any more seasons after season 2?

P.S. I'm a purple parrot now.  :D

1.  I ended up delaying posting the last few episodes of Season 1, I finished the three Layout IV episodes the same night I posted them here.  I wanna be a bit more ahead of the game this time.

2.  Hopefully there'll be at least three seasons, but I'm just gonna take them one at a time.  I'm making progress in Season 2 (currently in Layout VI) as quick as I can.

But you were acting like that episode 60 was an important episode, so you had to finish it up before you could release them.

Umm, it's just I copy-and-paste my work from a Microsoft Word document.  At least that way I can just paste it in no time and keep it going without alot of delay, rather than write them up as they go and just post one round of a particular episode every two weeks.

You know what? It'll probably bite me in the butt later, but I'm uploading the first few episodes today.  I can't guarantee uploading episodes will happen like every day, maybe not even every week, but let's kick off the second season allready, shall we?

Oh, I'm probably going to slow down a little here.  Ideally, I was gonna post four episodes a day, but I'm really not as far along as I hoped.  Just letting you know, it's probably gonna be one each day i post some here for a while.

(Buries face in hands) I'm just a teenager, and my parents don't own Universal Studios.  It's just a fanfic series.  And besides, I don't think the show will ever really be revived, since the Nickelodeon section of Universal Studios has been torn down or wiped blank or whatever.

The problem with the internet is that one can't express sarcasm or tone of voice as well as in real life. That's why I made I was understanding the situation correctly. Either way, I'm sure you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of the comment you made, joke or not. I put it above just to make you think.

Alas, this thread has been derailed but it is un-lockable. Let's just call everything even and forget about it. Work for you? Good. :)

Sorry I couldn't finish putting up my latest episode "The Missing Signature of George Washington" today.  I've been busy, hanging out with my friends, going out to eat, and tomorrow I'll have to meet with a couple of my classmates to work on a history project.  I'll probably have the Temple Games, Temple Run and summary up tomorrow night at the latest.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on April 25, 2009, 07:09:47 AM
Well, as I'm sure you guys have noticed, the first new episode went up last night! :D

I'll probably take a while before the next one comes up, though.  The way I write them resembles a production order, and that production order doesn't match up with the "airing" order that I'm going to show them in.  The next episode will be "The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza," but I didn't even start on that one yet ^^;

Also, keep your eyes peeled for Episode 58 (the last episode of Layout VII).  I'll explain why when we get there :wink:

Hey, quick question TAW. For the future room, "The Arctic Antechamber", does it mean that the players actually break down the ice walls? I don't really get it, would you mind explaining? (Or making one of your fantastic fanarts for that matter :) )
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 02, 2009, 05:56:24 AM
Well, basically there's three panels like the breakaway wall in the Dungeon placed in the front of the room.  There's one left of the ladder, one to the right and one in front, just off-center and turned sideways so the ladder can be seen.

The players do need to break down the ice walls; one of three opens the doors, so it's still a "choose one of three" objective for the room.  Just different instead of pulling books from the skeletons or anything else the show's had there.

I might as well try to make a pic for the room soon, since that might help.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Bamboo Forest on June 03, 2009, 11:53:55 PM
Ohh...I can picture it much better now. I thought that it was like King's Storeroom pot material or paper :). But now I find out that it is really one of those breakaway walls. LOL when you said rock wall in the Switch Inferno, I didn't even guessed that you meant that wall!

I guess temple guards would hide behind the correct wall or something?
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 04, 2009, 10:20:53 AM
Nope, they'd still use the same door they did in the Room of Temple Gongs.  See, the walls are freestanding.  Kinda like portals rather than sections of actual walls.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 04, 2009, 11:48:29 AM



This is a clear rush job, I know, but I hope it helps clear things up.  The "walls" are very similar to the rock wall in the Dungeon, but they're more like portals in that they're freestanding.

Temple Guards can't hide behind them unless the player were to run into them upon entry (like would be the case in the Tomb of the Headless Kings), but come to think of it, maybe that could be done.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Bamboo Forest on June 04, 2009, 09:40:31 PM
Oh, I always thought that they were built into the wall and the temple guards hid behind them. Misunderstanding of the room :) Can't wait to see that room actually featured in an episode.

Thanks for the fanart, cleared it up! xD

Actually, TAW, i think that this is an OUTSTANDING visual representation of "The Arctic Antechamber". Also, it looks VERY NICE and in NO way looks "rushed". Don't put down your own creations before the general public gets to see them, because you're only doing yourself a disservice by saying such comments.

ALSO, (and this comment is an AU comment where this room is actually on the drawing board) wouldn't there be a problem with having to gather up the stones to rebuild the walls, cuz they'd go EVERYWHERE after being broken down.

Well, isn't it hard to find them among the "quicksand" as well in the third season?

To stay on topic, did you just copy and paste the Dark Forest wall? It looks awfully like it....
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 05, 2009, 10:43:20 AM
That's exactly how I made it xD;;

This is why I said it was a rush job.  Partly because of how quickly I made the walls, and partly because I didn't give everything in the room the same quality (so they still look as in the photo of the Crypt, unlike the entirety of the other rooms I did art of).
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on July 06, 2009, 08:38:11 PM
So, with "Urashima Tar? and the Box of Lost Time" posted, now comes the question: Why was that episode in particular so important?

Well, I probably built it up much more than I should've, but as the last episode of Layout VII, "Urashima Tar? and the Box of Lost Time" is the cut-off for the teams that are eligible for the Season 2 Tournament of Champions.  Out of the 20 Season 1 episodes and the 38 Season 2 episodes that have appeared so far, the 16 best teams that went to the Temple will be chosen to participate in the tournament.

How it works is that, instead of the Moat, some flashbacks are played for each team, and four teams participate per episode.  The teams that make it to the Temple in "The Lion-Skin Cloak of Hercules," "The Burnt Treasures of ?neas," "The Jeweled Calix of Nebuchadnezzar" and "The Mystical Staff of Okomfo Anokye" each get a second shot in the Temple for more prizes, as well as a slot in the last episode of the season, "The Sheath of Excalibur." The team that wins on that episode gets a third Temple Run, this time for considerably better prizes than normal.

To make things even more interesting, I'm putting the vote in your hands.  I'll be voting myself, of course, but whichever 16 teams get the most votes will appear in the episodes.  Please send me your votes in a PM, though; don't post them here.

Rules behind the voting:
? Give me a list of 16 teams through PM.  Don't post it here, please.
? No teams from Episode 59 to Episode 80 are eligible.  Only Episode 1 to Episode 58 can compete in this season.
? You have until Episode 80 is posted to vote.
? You may change your vote, but once Episode 80 is up, it's locked in.
? You can't take players from separate episodes and put them together on a new team.  If there's a team of a slow-witted player and a great player that you think pulled off one of the best wins, the slow-witted player is along for the ride.

Question 'bout the Tournament...

So, regardless of the teams in Episodes 61--64's results, they would still move onto Episode 65?
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on July 19, 2009, 09:35:10 PM
Yeah.  The teams that make it to the Temple in Episodes 81 through 84 don't need to bring the artifact out to proceed to the final round in Episode 85.  They still take up the four spots in the finals either way.

Post by: The Ancient Warrior on August 05, 2009, 12:36:26 PM
In thinking, I took things in a strange direction with Season 2, but that's because I wrote that it was filmed during the winter of '07.

On the other hand, Season 3 would most likely be a Tropical Season.  If I do create it, I'd make it seem as if the show went on hiatus before making a third season this year.  I can see many of the rooms being Caribbean or Polynesian in terms of cultural motif, and I'd probably have the set resemble the first season of the actual show in terms of lighting.

There's sixteen, actually.  Four for each of the first four episodes; the winners from each day face off in "The Sheath of Excalibur," the finals.

For right now, I'll at least reveal the color combinations for each semifinal episode. :)

The Lion-Skin Cloak of Hercules: Red-Blue-Purple-Silver
The Burnt Treasures of ?neas: Red-Blue-Green-Purple
The Jeweled Calix of Nebuchadnezzar: Red-Green-Orange-Silver
The Mystical Staff of Okomfo Anokye: Red-Blue-Orange-Silver

I knew there were sixteen, I just wanted to know which teams colors/names you were using. :P But you answered my question anyway lol.
Title: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on November 08, 2009, 02:44:30 PM
Welp, I promised I'd explain how I write my fanfics, so here's the general formula:

For each episode, I have a Temple design drawn out at the beginning, with the placements of the guards, artifact and half Pendant(s) if the team doesn't go in with two Pendants.  I also mark ventilation shaft locations and which ones are open/closed and try to indicate dead ends, closed-off rooms and alternate paths that players can take.

Once I have that drawn up, the next thing I do is decide on the outcomes for each team if they make it to the Temple and then separate outcomes depending on which player comes first.  So, basically, the Temple Run has twelve possibilities.  Of course, I can't guarantee the team will have less than two Pendants, so "triple seizure" is just an alternate choice any time I decide a team would meet all three Temple Guards with a certain outcome.

I rely a lot on diagrams and random number generators from there on out.  I try to make little diagrams, pictures or tables that vaguely resemble the Moat crossing or Temple Games from above, and then the generated numbers usually indicate how far players move.  In the Moat, there's usually a chance a player or team could be sent back; if the sequence for a certain team has three zeroes in a row (sometimes only two, depending on the Moat), a player falls into the Moat and has to go back (the numbers generated turn into his/her speed going back to the start, then).  Two zeroes in a row, a small number and then another zero are used to mark if a player breaks the rules in any way other than falling into the water, though.

The Steps of Knowledge writing is in two parts.  I set up all the questions first, then jot down each player's answer. (I used to think both players on the team were given a microphone for the Steps, and I kept writing like that into Season 2, so even after I found out I was wrong, I kept that just to be consistent).  So, after I've written down all the potential answers, I use a two-row generator with the possible numbers being from 0 to 8.  The first number in the sequence corresponds to the first player that rings in, and the second matches up with the second (if it's zero, however, I write that down as no teams attempting the question).  The second number also tells me how many more places in the sequence until the next pair of numbers I'm going to use for the next question.  That's why a lot of my Steps rounds tend to drag out, lol.

The Temple Games each have their own distinct rules for what the numbers mean.  In the wheel game, for example, the numbers only range from 0 to 2.  A total of 4 adds one rotation to the player's score, but three 0's in a row means that the player falls off the wheel (if it's just one or two, the player just isn't moving as fast :P).  Once the player gets over ten rotations, however, each following rotation requires a sum of 8 rather than 4 (that's to keep the scores from getting too outrageous).

The tiebreaker, if it's needed, is a simple generation of four different five-number sequences, one for each player.  The greatest sum corresponds to the player who rings in first, and then two more sequences are generated and compared (the first is "player gets it right," the other is "player gets it wrong and the other team wins").

I eliminate the Temple Run outcomes as teams are done, so when it's down to just one team, I do the two-sequence comparison again to decide if the boy goes first or if the girl does.

Of course, I do have my way and bend the rules a bit to make things go faster at times to keep them interesting.  My memory's a tad fuzzy, but I think there was only one double sweep at the Steps I wrote? "The Cracked Teacup of Elizabeth Cady Stanton"? and that was something I didn't decide randomly, partly because I didn't have a lot of short Steps rounds and partly because Blue vs. Silver at the Temple Games was very rare and I wanted to write it in for that particular episode.  Other times (like "The Broken Flask of Louis Pasteur") I have the outcome planned as soon as the Temple design is drawn, but I just need to write everything else randomly.  And, of course, other times I just come up with random ways to keep things interesting (see "Henrique Galv?o and the Santa Maria," or both "The Thorn Crown of Emperor Augustus" and "Urashima Tar? and the Box of Lost Time").

And, of course, I try to keep certain conventions:
?   There are certain color combinations at the Temple Games that I won't feature for an entire season, and that has a tendency to bend the expected outcomes when the teams go on from the Steps.  After all, in the original show, no season featured all fifteen team combinations, so the first twelve, thirteen or fourteen combinations to occur become the only ones to do so.
?   Not all the teams make it to the Temple in a certain layout.  The only time that happened in the original show (aside from Season 3, of course) was Layout XII, so I only wanted one layout (Layout VII) where all the teams go at least once.  That tends to bend some of the Temple Games outcomes, too.
?   There was never a season where every team logged at least one win, and I wanted to keep that as well.  The reason it was the Iguanas in Season 2, however, was because they were the only team to win twice in Season 1 and I wasn't sure if I was going to write a third season, so I didn't want there to be any teams that only won once.  I'm still not sure if I'll write Season 3, honestly.

With the Tournament, however, I'm focusing more on keeping things consistent.  This time, I'm looking back at the players' performances in their last appearances and trying to use that to determine which teams will come out on top.

GENERAL TRIVIA
-   Only two players have used the Secret Shafts— Tiffany, the second runner in "The Silver Angel Wing of Elizabeth I" (Season 1, Layout I), and Daron, the second runner in "The Secret Treasure of Phoolan Devi" (Season 2, Layout VI).  Robert from "The Silver Gauntlet of the Black Prince" (Season 2, Layout VII) also found a Secret Shaft, in the Crevasse, but that time it was locked.
-   All the Red Jaguar teams that made it to the Temple in Season 1 won 1½ Pendants in the Temple Games.
-   The shortest Moat on record— nine seconds— occurred in "The Revised Map of the New World" (Season 2, Layout IX).
-   The longest episode title to date is "The Cross-Sectioned Map of the Winchester Mystery House."
-   The average team took about 1.6 Pendants to the Temple.
-   The Green Monkeys were undefeated at the Temple Games in Season 1.
-   In each season, all but one team managed to successfully bring at least one artifact out of the temple within the three-minute time limit. In Season 1 the Green Monkeys went 0-for-3, while in Season 2 the Orange Iguanas put up a donut, going 0-for-8.
-   The only two episodes that feature four-way ties on the second-to-last Step of Knowledge are "The Holy Ankh of the Egyptian Deity" (Season 1, Layout III) and "The Missing Signature of George Washington" (Season 2, Layout VI).
-   Rooms that only contained one artifact included the Dungeon of the Lone Column, the Chamber of the Sacred Markers, the Tomb of the Headless Kings, the Chamber of Four Columns, the Forbidden Fountain, the Abandoned Cave, the Planetarium, the Geographer's Study, the Cathedral, the Lost Treasury and the Labyrinth. No artifacts were ever hidden in the Dark Forest.
-   Artifacts were occasionally hidden in a divided pit room (e.g. the Mine Shaft/the Bridge).  The first time this occurred was in "The Chalice of Vasco de Balboa" (Season 2, Layout VII).
-   The only Temple Layout to have each team go to the Temple at least once was Layout VII in Season 2.  It was also one of the few layouts to lack a one-Pendant Temple Run.
-   Rooms in which a Temple Guard was never encountered include the Dark Forest, the Dungeon of the Lone Column and the Chamber of Four Columns.  The only time a Temple Guard appeared in that room space in Season 1 was in "The Royal Crown of Louis the Fourteenth" (Layout IV).
-   The fastest victory was achieved in "The 96th Thesis of Martin Luther" (Season 2, Layout IX). Having taken a straight path to the artifact, the second runner, James, made it to the Thesis in the Dungeon and then escaped with 1:17 on the clock.
-   The quickest capture by three Temple Guards occurred in "The Wanted Poster of the Gentleman Bushranger" (Season 2, Layout VII). Because the follow-up runner Sara couldn't find the half Pendant in the Mine Shaft; the Silver Snakes' run ended in the Junction of the Secret Shafts with 1:45 left.
-   The only episodes of The Rediscovery in which a Temple Spirit stops the Temple Run are "The Iron Helmet of Rurik" (Season 2, Layout VI) and "The Magical Thread of Ariadne" (Season 2, Layout VIII).  In both cases, the capture took place in the Knights' Barracks.
-   The only Temple Run where the second Temple Guard ends the run is "Henrique Galvão and the Santa Maria" (Season 2, Layout VII).  The frontrunner, Danielle, lost her Pendant in the Crevasse and was taken out by the first guard in the Junction of the Secret Shafts.  The follow-up runner Adam didn't find her Pendant or the other half of his, so the second Temple Guard caught him in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 1:03 on the clock.
-   The record for the fastest assembly of the Silver Monkey is held by Derek from "The Tattered Battle Flag of General Cornwallis" (Season 2, Layout VI,) who completed it in twelve seconds.  The slowest successful assembly, on the other hand, was done by Jasmine from "The Chalice of Vasco de Balboa" (Season 2, Layout VII), who required 43 seconds.
-   Only two victories were achieved with but a single second left on the clock: "The Sheath of Pedro I of Brazil" (Season 2, Layout V) and "The Secret Treasure of Phoolan Devi" (Season 2, Layout VI).
-   The first solo Temple Run occurred in "The Feathered Headdress of Powhatan" (Season 1, Layout II). The Silver Snake, Tico, grabbed the Headdress in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 32 seconds left, but time ran out as he was leaving the Great Chasm. The first solo victory, however, did not occur until "Henry the Navigator's Missing Maps" (Season 1, Layout IV).
-   The only Temple Run in which no Temple Guards were encountered was "The Cork of Robert Hooke" (Season 2, Layout VI).  Because of the lack of Temple Guards, the result was a solo win recorded in just under two minutes.
-   The record for the most room objectives completed by a single player is ten, achieved in "The Tattered Battle Flag of General Cornwallis" (Season 2, Layout VI.) That same episode also holds the record for the least amount of time any player who entered the Temple spent in the Temple— the second player, Crystal, passed through the Temple Gate just as time expired.
-   The only episode where a player passes through all three doors leading left of the pit area is "The Missing Log Book of Tenzing Norgay" (Season 1, Layout I).
-   The longest completion of the Switch Inferno's objective occurred in "The Stained Coat of François l'Ollonais," (Season 2, Layout VI) and it was completed in no less than 64 seconds.  It can be assumed that this was the reason why the number of actuators in the room was reduced from twenty-four to twelve in Layout VII and onward.
-   The Dark Overlook objective was only completed in "The Helmet of Richard the Lion Heart" (Season 2, Layout VI) and "The Tattered Battle Flag of General Cornwallis" (Season 2, Layout VI).  The Planetarium objective was only completed in "The Smashed Spit of Roche Braziliano" (Season 2, Layout VII) and "The Spiritual Scroll of Akhenaten" (Season 2, Layout VII).
-   Every artifact hidden in the Junction of the Secret Shafts prior to "The Jeweled Lei of the Hawai?ian Queen" (Season 2, Layout VI) was successfully retrieved.
-   The frontrunner began in the Crypt in every Temple Run that contained it.
-   The only Temple Runs where the breakaway rock wall connecting the two leftmost rooms on the bottom floor does not break down are "The Lost Colony and the Croatoan Carving" (Season 2, Layout VIII) and "The Jeweled Calix of Nebuchadnezzar" (Season 2, Tournament of Champions Layout X).
-   The only Season 1 episode whose legend is devoid of quotations is "The Missing Log Book of Tenzing Norgay" (Layout I).  In Season 2, there are no quotations in the legends in "The Unlucky Necklace of Harmonia" (Layout V), "The Cork of Robert Hooke" (Layout VI), "The Helmet of Richard the Lion Heart" (Layout VI), "Rutherford's Gold Foil" (Layout VIII) and "The Lost Colony and the Croatoan Carving" (Layout VIII).
-   The legend in "The Sacred Quill of Quetzalcoatl" (Season 1, Layout III) included Olmec talking in the first person.  It was made to have him sound as if he knew Quetzalcoatl personally.
-   The smallest number of rooms entered in any Temple Run is four, occuring only in "The Wanted Poster of the Gentleman Bushranger" (Season 2, Layout VII).
-   The only Temple Runs where the direct path leads to the artifact are "The Blue Royal Gown of Catherine of Braganza" (Season 2, Layout VII), "The 96th Thesis of Martin Luther" (Season 2, Layout IX) and "The Silver Earring of Captain Kidd" (Season 2, Layout IX).  All three were Red Jaguars wins as well.
-   Two Moat rounds ended with a certain team combination before being corrected: "The Thorn Crown of Emperor Augustus" (Season 1, Layout II) and "Urashima Tar? and the Box of Lost Time" (Season 2, Layout VII).  In both cases the Green Monkeys were among the first four teams to complete the Moat, but didn't cross properly.  In both instances, the Steps match-up became Red-Blue-Orange-Purple, the Temple Games match-up would be Blue vs. Purple, and the team that replaced the Green Monkeys eventually made it to the Temple.
-   Two episodes were recorded in a certain Temple layout but featured a Temple Run in a later layout.  Both "The Chinese Emperor and the Great Wall" and "The Magical Thread of Ariadne" began in Season 2, Layout VII, but "The Magical Thread of Ariadne" had a Temple Run recorded in Layout VIII and "The Chinese Emperor and the Great Wall" finished out in Layout IX.
-   Only one player has ever entered all the rooms of a particular layout: Ryan, the second runner in "The Right Nostril of the Great Sphinx" (Season 1, Layout III). After grabbing the Nostril in the King's Storeroom, he descended into the Burial Pit, jumped down into the Great Chasm, entered the Ledges and then climbed up into the Vault to escape from the Temple and record the win with 5 seconds left.
-   The closest failed acquisition of an artifact occurred in "Helen of Troy's Mystical Mirror" (Season 1, Layout III). The second runner Ray slid down the Pharaoh's Secret Passage into the Quicksand Bog with 2 seconds left, but could not grab the Mirror in time.
-   A lot of Season 2 Temple Runs were partially or mostly voiced over, including: "The Unlucky Necklace of Harmonia" Layout V; "The Fabled Fortune-Telling Book of Tituba," "The Missing Signature of George Washington," "The Secret Journal of Niccolò Machiavelli" and "The Tattered Battle Flag of General Cornwallis" in Layout VI; "Henrique Galvão and the Santa Maria," "The Broken Flask of Louis Pasteur," "The Golden Grapes of Dionysus," "The Missing Card of Dmitri Mendeleev" and "The Silver Gauntlet of the Black Prince" for Layout VII; "The Bonnet of Mercy Otis Warren" for Layout VIII; and "Nero's Half-Burnt Toga," "The Cross-Sectioned Map of the Winchester Mystery House" and "The Golden Lighthouse of Demetrius of Pharos" for Layout IX.
-   The only Temple Runs where the three Temple Guards are in consecutive rooms are "The Jeweled Sword of Charlemagne" (Season 1, Layout IV) and "The Golden Grapes of Dionysus" (Season 2, Layout VII).  Coincidentally, both were Red Jaguars runs.

TOP TWENTY[-ONE] LEGENDS TEAMS
(Note: This was determined using The Mandarin Hand's scoring system (http://phantomsden.6.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=1712).  There MAY be a little difference with one bit, however: I only deducted 15 points for an incorrect turn if a player met a dead end or ran into a room only to turn back before completing the objective, but not if players took a longer path that could still take them to the artifact.)

Season 3 definitely won't be coming for a while, if at all.  Hope that's not too much of a letdown. :P I still need to decide what I'll do, but in the meantime, I might post some interviews, update TRotAW or work on other projects, but no matter what I end up doing as far as The Rediscovery goes, I'll still be here. :)

Apparently I have more of a creative drive than I thought. :shock: I'm already just about set to begin the Season 3 dry run (the first production day that, depending on how long this takes, will determine whether or not I go through with writing a full third season).  Think of this post as a marker for when I started writing.

...And if I don't make a full season again, I might as well post the five episodes in the spring anyway, just marked as a sort of "Season 3 beta" or some such. :P

Status update:

It took me a while, but I finally finished the first production day of Season 3.  My plan right now is to see where I'm at with the series a month from now, when I'm out of college for the summer, and see if I can manage a full season in a reasonable amount of time.

Expect the first few episodes to drop in June or early July, even if I decide not to create a full third season? I don't want this work to completely go to waste. :P

Well, keep in mind that's just a tentative release date for the first production day, at the moment.  If I plan to do more than just the first few episodes, I might stop for another couple weeks so that I can write more. :P

Good news, everyone! [/prof farnsworth]


Expect new episodes REALLY soon.  I've been trying to think up a way to air the episodes in a timely manner, and I think I have a possible setup, just to test the waters.  The first production day of Season 3 will be posted one episode at a time, starting tonight and continuing over the next few Mondays.  Hopefully I'll be well ahead by then, so I can keep belting out new episodes at a regular pace. :wink:

And so, a new season calls for new Temple Layouts, wouldn't you agree? I'm only describing the first layout of Season 3 for now; I might or might not include more later. :wink:

The layout's rooms are, as usual, given in counterclockwise order.  Room changes from the Tournament of Champions layout in Season 2 (read: everything except for two rooms) are also indicated by bold text.

Season 3
Layout XI
The Room of the Ancient Masks? And so, the top entrance room returns to a typical upper-left room set up.  It's not much different from the Room of the Three Gargoyles.
The Pit of Despair? Despite being called the "Pit of Despair," this room doesn't quite resemble any of the other rooms by that name.  It's a bit more like the Pit of the Pendulum with thin side ledges on the left and right walls, but two catwalks connect the side ledges of the room.
The Observatory? A shout-out goes to TBK for this room, partly inspired by his Lookout Tower.  A telescope just in front of the ladder in the room has to be used to read writing off of the far wall above the audience, but the writing is actually a simple command that has to be followed rather than shouted out.  At the front of the room are two altars, each with three celestial models on top (on the left, Mercury, Venus and the Sun; on the right, the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter), and the objective involves these in some way.
The Central Dock? Two masts and a crow's nest are located around the room and must be placed in the ship just in front of the ladder leading downwards (it doesn't matter which mast the crow's nest rests on).
The Den of Totem Poles? Think the "stone column" Observatory from Season 2 of the original show, only doubled.  Two totem poles with three faces each are positioned on either side of the ladder leading downwards, and all six faces need to be turned toward the audience.
The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
The Pirate's Cove
The Graveyard of Ships? Two graves are positioned in the back of the room where the Temple Guard door would usually be.  In order to enter the Pirate's Cove or Shrine of the Silver Monkey, players have to step on the actuator in the correct grave... at the risk of being grabbed by a Temple Guard-possessed pirate buried in one of the graves.
The Viper's Nest? Almost the same as in the original show, but the third snake jar now hides a key rather than a snake that has to be pulled out.
The Bamboo Forest? Same as the original show, only with the "secret passages" concept added in.
The Lost Treasury? It should be noted that while most of the set has switched to much brighter lighting reminiscent of the original show's opening season, this particular room space in the temple remains very dim to create an atmosphere that matches many of the rooms in this space for Season 3.
The Cave

Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 14, 2010, 05:21:30 PM
Well, onto this week's episode.  Can't say I'm as proud of this one considering the focal legend and all, but I did meet a creative drought and I decided to go ahead with it, hoping the change of central character would actually set it apart.

Looking at it, though, it's worse than simply choosing a central figure used in the show and coming up with a different legend, so since then, I've tried to replace the copy-episodes I didn't already get started on, although one or two may still remain besides this one? just as a warning. ^^;

EDIT: Another thing I'd like to mention is that I'm trying to experiment with making things easier to read? spacing portions out a bit more so they don't show up as blocky? but I'd love to have advice with what parts seem to be the most difficult to read because of the setup.  Feel free to comment on that here or in the episode threads.

Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 23, 2010, 04:55:56 PM
I pretty much write them as I go, to be honest.  I don't have something like that in mind now, but it might or might not happen, depending on how fast I want to make the team and what the Temple configuration looks like when I have a team that grabs the artifact, but doesn't make it out in time.

Honestly, I'd like to see what I can come up with that A) didn't happen in the show itself and B) hasn't already been done by TBF, TBK and anyone else here who writes fanfics.  This might be the last season I create, so I want to try finding new and creative ideas, and hopefully I can go out with a bang if Season 3 ends up being the end. :P

Ideas for Season 3 Rediscovery episodes.  i didn't have any yet that looked like body parts, so:

The Petrified Hair of Galatea
The Stone Ear from Easter Island
The Lost Arm of the Venus de Milo
The Wooden Dragon Head of the Ormen Lange
Kaguyahime's Golden Hair
The Replaced Hand of Ali?i?lani Hale

Also, you MUST have my permission to use these artifacts.

Quote from: ""The Ancient Warrior""
?Iolani Palace's Missing Armrest
Demetrius Ypsilanti and the Maiden's Diamond Necklace
The Compact Calix of Cebu
The Heart-Shaped Locket of Elisabeth of Bavaria

Also, these couple are based off of the legends of a couple actual episodes, but the legends are gonna be slightly changed as well as the artifacts:

The Smashed Statue Piece of Thutmose
The Torn Journal Page of Henry Stanley


Of course, you've already done the Smashed Statue Piece of Thutmose and the Heart-Shaped Locket.

Some of the others will still appear? I still can't believe I've had those ideas floating around for that long! :P

I have an idea! If you also do seasons 4 and 5, have the winners of each of the 4 Tournaments of Champions compete in 1 final episode. The temple layout will be a combination of rooms from previous layouts voted on by the members here at Phantom's Temple!

I'll consider it, but for right now, it seems too difficult to realistically pull off.  I mean, keep in mind there's a three-year gap between Season 2 and Season 3, so by the time we get to Season 5, some of these kids might be young adults. :wink:

Double-post for convenience because I just realized I didn't really emphasize all the differences between Season 2 and Season 3 as TBK had for the Season 1~2 differences in his series.

?   The lighting for Season 3 is much more reminiscent of the original show's first season in that it resembles a sunny, tropical jungle during the day rather than at night, as the earlier seasons had.  The exception is the bottom room of the central shaft, which is still very dimly-lit.
?   However, Kirk is still dressed in blue jeans rather than khaki shorts, and the players are still dressed as they would be in the later seasons of the original show.  This remains consistent for The Rediscovery in its entirety.
?   Olmec's voice, which previously resembled that of the second season of the original show, is now a bit deeper.  He also speaks a bit louder and a little quicker.
?   Fog machines remain a staple of the show's set; they create more of a "haze" effect at the Moat, but may be used to mimic waterfalls in the Temple itself.
?   Also, the Temple still has only one entrance.  The Cave cannot be entered from the front, but must be entered after going up the stairs at Olmec's side and then by sliding down behind him.
?   Season 2 saw a number of the rooms having unconvential objectives? one of the most prominent examples was the Switch Inferno, which was located below the Shrine of the Silver Monkey but did not involve a key in any way.  These sorts of objectives have been reverted for Season 3.
?   A vertical passage has been reinstalled in the Temple, connecting the two rooms just left of the central shaft.  This passage has been closed off for the first two seasons due to space constraints in the Room of the Ancient Warriors and the Knights' Barracks.
?   The Bamboo Forest, which replaces the Junction of the Secret Shafts and the Labyrinth for all of Season 3, resembles its original-show counterpart much more closely.  The Temple Guard door at the back of the room has been covered up, and guards once again hide in a murky concoction covering the floor of the room.  The ventilation shafts from the first two seasons are still present as well, but while they used to protrude from the walls to form a periphery around the room, (http://http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o116/The_Ancient_Warrior/JunctionoftheSecretShafts.jpg) the exits are now located on the back wall and now consist of solid, slightly off-color doors rather than actual ventilation shafts.
?   The center room, whose wallpaper changes from one season to the next, regains its "Heart Room" wallpaper for Season 3, but with the panel in the back covering the ladder leading upward, and with the same flash effects when this door opens.
?   A new feature to the show: Pendant fragments will appear in the upper corners of the screen during the second and third Temple Games in the appropriate colors, (http://http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o116/The_Ancient_Warrior/PendantIndicators.jpg) to help viewers who might have just tuned in catch up.

Decisions, decisions.  I've decided to do away with the interview with Matt from "The Missing Card of Dmitri Mendeleev," and I'm going to come up with two different ones in its place: Amber from "Henry the Navigator's Missing Maps" and Dominik from "The Ace of Spades of Black Jack Ketchum." Expect the first somewhere between now and the end of the Layout XII episodes.

Just a minor announcement regarding the next few weeks:

As usual, I'll post "The Weaving Shuttle of Arachne" on Friday.  Next week will see THREE new episodes: the last three episodes of Layout XII, posted on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

After that, however, there will be no new episodes for a couple weeks? I'm starting to fall behind, and without this break, it wouldn't be possible to keep posting new episodes at a regular rate. ^^; When I start up again with the Hawaiian Layout, it will most likely be two episodes per week once again, unless I need to air only one at a time for a while.

EDIT: Come to think of it, there's a slight chance that "The Yamato Arrow of Empress Jing?" might be posted on Saturday instead of Friday.  This depends on how the move-in goes, since I'm heading back out to Syracuse on Thursday but not settling into my dorm until the following day.  If that ends up being a very busy day, I'll just have to post the new episode on Saturday instead, but we'll see.

Well, as you've probably noticed, I've been at work trying to catch up with the new episodes. :P I'm going to see where I'm at this weekend, and if I feel like I'm far enough ahead, I'll post Episode 106 this Monday and then do one episode each week for a few weeks.  Otherwise, it'll wait until the week after.

As a minor side note, I've changed the title of "The Missing Mast Piece from Pearl Harbor" to "The Missing Mast Piece of the Prisoner of War." When the realization that I have two very similar legends coming up finally hit me, I decided I'd try to give each of the two episodes a different twist/perspective.  Nothing big, but still.

All right, I know it's not much of an update, but you all know I've been working on advanced states for the first two seasons for a while now, and part of the reason is for more organized rankings for the teams.  While I was compiling these, I realized I'd made quite a few mistakes, so I went back and corrected this portion of the stats.

Once again, this was determined using The Mandarin Hand's scoring system (http://http://phantomsden.6.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=1712), with the maximum possible score being 140.  The exception is that the "incorrect turn" deduction is only if a player met a dead end, obviously went in the wrong direction or ran into a room only to turn back before completing the objective and enter a different room.  There are no deductions of this kind if players simply took a longer path that could still lead them directly to the artifact.

And now, the revised list!



TWENTIETH PLACE (108 points)
Erik and Abbie ("The Revised Map of the New World")

NINETEENTH PLACE (109 points)

FIFTEENTH PLACE (114 points)

TIE FOR TWELFTH PLACE (119 points)

Brian and Stephanie ("The Lost Love Letter of Jos?phine Bonaparte")

ELEVENTH PLACE (121 points)
Sean Ogedengbe and Tiffany Martinez ("The Silver Angel Wing of Elizabeth I")

I really have to apologize for the lack of a new episode this week... I've been swamped with homework and feeling a tad unmotivated lately; it's been difficult to focus on The Rediscovery lately as a result.  Obviously I'm not done with the next episode just yet, but my current plan is to post it next Monday and then continue with the normally planned schedule from there.  Again, I'm sorry I've been so behind, but my grades and routine are slipping and I need to focus. :C

Well, time to state a bit of the obvious: I need to get ahead with the fanfic-writing.  I can't keep churning out new episodes at the last minute, so what I'm going to do is move the new episodes to Fridays rather than Mondays so I can stay ahead of things.  I need the few extra days to get ahead for the next one, since I haven't even written beyond the first Temple Game.  I'm sorry about this, people, but hopefully it'll pay off.

Well, the Hawaiian Layout just closed out last night, and I hope you guys liked that one. :D

But now for the bad news: I'm going to take another break of a few weeks to try and get ahead.  Between final exams, packing to go home, helping my parents around the house and any visits and celebrations, I might be a little preoccupied for the next few weeks, and currently I'm only just starting the episodes for Layout XIV? I'm taking a page from TBK with how I plan the layouts from here on out, by writing the legends first and then organizing the episodes.... but right now I still have three legends to write.

A few weeks, however, should be enough time for me to catch up, so the next new episode will be on Friday, January 7.  I'll still be working at it, but we'll see how it goes, so stay tuned for 2011!

Just another status update:

At this point, when the new episodes come in hinges on the future of the forum.  If for whatever reason (such as backups not being compatible with the final host decision) everything needs to be copied and pasted to a new forum, the already-posted episodes will be transported first, and new ones may not appear until February.  Otherwise, new episodes will probably begin again on either the 14th or the 21st at this rate? I'm not far enough along that I can post the next one this Friday.

Stay tuned either way!

Simple: repost. :P


That actually reminds me that I haven't given an official status update.  It's not as if I didn't know this problem occured.  In fact, I'll admit to deliberately biding my time with reuploading the rest of the older episodes, because I need to catch up on my writing.  I'll see where I'm at in a couple weeks if I can just push myself to focus on the next Season 3 episodes, and probably spend some more time reuploading bits and pieces of the remaining 95 episodes and damaged interviews in the meantime.

I think I've solved the production order of the Rediscovery's third season— for the most part, I went back and reviewed each episode's statistics and compiled a comprehensible list of how Season 3's episodes have been configured into production days, per se (this is only a list of the possibilities of the production order composed by me in the most logical formula):


Layout XI
#86: The Heart-Shaped Locket of Elisabeth of Bavaria
#87: The Wolf-Skin Cloak of Victor of Aveyron
#88: The Wooden Dragon Head of the Ormen Lange
#89: The Smashed Statue Piece of Thutmose
#90: The Wedding Ring of King Shahrayar

Layout XII
#91: The White Flag of Tomiko Higa
#92: The Written Draft of the Zimmermann Note
#93: The Emerald Earrings of Maria Theresa
#94: The Compact Calix of Cebu
#95: Demetrius Ypsilanti and the Dame's Diamond Necklace
#96: The Thrown-Away Battle Plan of Pyrrhus
#97: The Yamato Arrow of Empress Jingu
#98: Savonarola's Torch
#99: The Inspirational Mask of Mozart
#100: The Melted Candle of Edgar Allan Poe
#101: The Secret Water Scroll of Nefermesi
#102: The Inner-Seeking Stone of Confucius
#103: The Missing Map of the Eureka Stockade
#104: The Original Robe of the Emerald Buddha
#105: The Weaving Shuttle of Arachne

Layout XIII (Hawaiian Punch!)
#106: Lunalilo's Royal Crown
#107: Ka'ahumanu's Favorite Gown
#108: The Missing Map Piece of the Prisoner of War
#109: The Attack Plan of Minoru Genda
#110: The Lost Letter of the Sacramento Union
#111: 'Iolani Palace's Missing Armrest
#112: The Replaced Hand of Ali'iolani Hale
#113: The Stolen Lantern of the Aloha Tower
#114: The Priceless Flute of Leleiohoku
#115: The Second Seashell of Kane Milohai


I hope it's correct and I look forward to reading more Rediscovery episodes this year!!  :mrgreen:

Aside from the size-99 font on the Seasons 2-3 episodes (which should be about a 12 font), a lot of your episodes have too much question marks replacing where the air quotes, dashes, etc. should be. Can you fix those three things?
Title: Re: Legends: The Rediscovery
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on November 22, 2011, 07:23:55 PM
As I said earlier on the page, I'm aware of the issues. :P You can blame the numerous software changes and updates which affected a lot of the posts.  Many of the question marks, though, were originally accented characters or dashes that aren't recognized on this forum, but were on the original.  They used to work here at some point, too, but inconveniently, I think TSM needs to enable that again after the last software update...

I was working on fixing the episodes for a while, and I meant to get back to it.  Unfortunately, I have no real motivation for the series any more, and I haven't felt like updating the episode posts either.  But seeing as the old forum is offline, I might as well spend some time trying to edit the posts with the backup data.  I can't promise anything new, though.
