Rediscovery EP: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula
« on: April 16, 2007, 04:17:21 PM »
Author's Note: This is one of the episodes in my independent project.  If you have any complaints, first thing to do is to go see the episode directory here:
Legends: The Rediscovery

Episode 22px]

The camera maneuvers through a thick rainforest to stop in front of an ancient temple.  A giant stone head next to the gate of the temple begins to speak:
"LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE! With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is NOW!"

On this final word, Kirk appears from behind the Temple Guard door in the Dungeon and runs straight out into the foreground of the stage to greet the crowd. "Thank you! Thank you very much! Nice to see you! Nice to see you, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple.  The rooms are filled with lost treasures that are protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards.  Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple.  Which legend are we gonna hear about today?"

Olmec replies:
"The Legend of the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula."

"So the legend is set," says Kirk, "and one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Medallion.  Will it be:
"Jackie and Autumn of the Red Jaguars?" the camera pans to each team in order?
"Tony and Amanda of the Blue Barracudas,
"Pat and Stephanie of the Green Monkeys,
"Chris and Samantha of the Orange Iguanas,
"T.J. and Carolina of the Purple Parrots,
"Or Billy and Alex of the Silver Snakes?"

"They'll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests," Kirk says, "but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter the Temple.  But first, they must cross the Moat, and here's how they'll have to do it today:
"In front of each team are three ropes: one that goes straight across the Moat, and two that crisscross in the middle.  When I say go, one player from each team will grab onto the higher rope and walk across the lower rope.  And when the ropes cross, they'll have to switch their feet to the other rope.  When the first player steps onto the deck, it's his partner's turn to cross."
"When the second player steps onto the deck, it's his job to run over here and hit the gong." He slams down on the Red Jaguars' gong to demonstrate. "The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round.  Hey teams? are you ready?"
The players all cheer and shout in response.
"Olmec, are you ready?" asks Kirk.
"You betcha!" Olmec replies.
"All right then," Kirk replies. "On your marks, get set, GO!"

The competition is very close here.  The boy on the Green Monkeys and the girl on the Silver Snakes are the first ones to switch their feet to the other rope, followed by the boy on the Orange Iguanas and the girl on the Purple Parrots.  The Red Jaguars? and Blue Barracudas? first players soon catch up to the other teams, but the first player to step off onto the deck is the boy on the Green Monkeys.  Then the girls on the Red Jaguars and Silver Snakes are next, along with the boy on the Orange Iguanas.
?It?s gonna be real close!? Kirk shouts as the girls on the Blue Barracudas and the Purple Parrots make it across. ?Everyone?s doin? great so far!? About twenty seconds later, the girl on the Green Monkeys gets across and goes to ring her team?s gong. ?Green Monkeys in? Red Iguanas gonged it? We?re still lookin? for two more teams!? Just then the boy from the Blue Barracudas climbs onto the deck. ?Blue Barracudas locked in? Still need one more team? and it?s the Purple Parrots! That?s it! We?ve got our four teams right here!?
Kirk stands by the calmly clapping Red Jaguars. ?Red Jaguars over in a flash! They?ll be goin? on to the Steps of Knowledge, along with the Blue Barracudas?? the camera briefly shows each qualifying team? ?and the Green Monkeys? and the Purple Parrots! Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes gave it a great effort too.  We?ve got a great gift for them for playing and here?s what it is.?
Dee reads the consolation prize:
"Look at the entertaining fun you?ll have when you strap on Moon Shoes.  Super excitement is yours when you bounce higher than ever! Don?t leave Earth without Moon Shoes, from Big Time Toys!"

Rediscovery EP: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula
« Reply #1 on: April 16, 2007, 04:25:30 PM »
The four teams are now at the top of the Steps of Knowledge accompanied by Kirk. "As the quest continues, it's now time for Olmec to tell us about the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula.  But pay attention teams, because your knowledge of the Legend can bring you one step closer to Olmec's Temple."
Olmec begins to tell the legend:
"One of the cruelest and most bloodthirsty rulers of eastern Europe was Vlad III.  He was born in Romania, and when he was a teenager, he was placed on the throne as a figurehead by the sultan of the Ottoman empire.  But then a group of lords and ladies forced him off the throne and drove him away to Hungary.
"'I have to do something! I have to grab a new weapon.  I have to make a plan to get back home. ?I have to stop talking to myself.'
"Just then a group of men wearing dragon-shaped helmets arrived on armored horses.
"'Come with us,' one of them said in a deep voice. 'Join the Order of the Dragon.  We?ll give you all the power you need.' And he held out a fist clutching a dragon-headed medallion? a symbol of membership in the Order.
"Vlad indeed did return to the throne, with the new dark name Vlad Dracula and a persona to match.  His first order of business was to take revenge on the nobles who forced him out of Romania.  He had some of them arrested at an royal banquet, cut off other ones? arms and legs, and boiled most of the others in oil! When Vlad died, the Romanians were very relieved that a long reign of terror was over, and some say the people stole all his personal possessions, including the medallion he received from the Order of the Dragon.  Your goal is to retrieve the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula, and bring it back here."

"Thank you Olmec," Kirk says after Olmec finishes telling the legend. "So tell us, where is the Dragon Medallion?"
Olmec replies:
"The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula can be found in? the Daaaaaark Overlook." The camera zooms in on the Dragon-Headed Medallion around the middle pedestal in the front of the Dark Overlook, then fades back to Kirk.

"All right," Kirk says, walking down the steps. "Teams, you?re standing on the Steps of Knowledge, and in a minute, Olmec will ask you a question.  If you think you know the answer, stomp down on that ancient marking in front of you.  If you're right, you're gonna move down to the next level, but if you're wrong or run out of time, I'll give the other teams a chance to answer.  The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to Olmec's Temple.  Olmec! We're now ready for your first question."

Olmec begins:
?Was Vlad Dracula a king of: Germany, Italy, or Romania??
Autumn stomps down first: ?Romania???
?Correct,? Olmec replies.
?All right, step down!? Kirk shouts.  The Red Jaguars, Jackie and Autumn, then move down one step. ?Olmec, next question.?
Olmec asks:
?Was Vlad?s birth name???
Stephanie rings in: ?Dracula??? She grins sheepishly.
?Incorrect,? Olmec replies. ?The other two choices are: Vlad III or Vladimir of Romania.?
Jackie buzzes in: ?Vlad III???
?That is correct,? Olmec answers, and the Red Jaguars can move down again.
?Just like that, they?re only one step away from the Temple Games,? Kirk explains to the audience. ?Next question, Olmec.?
Olmec now asks:
?Was Vlad originally forced off the throne by: The nobles, The common folk, or A Hungarian king??
T.J. stomps down first and answers: ?Hungarian king???
?Incorrect,? Olmec replies.
Stephanie then buzzes in: ?The nobles???
?Correct,? Olmec answers, and the Green Monkeys can move down a step.
?Okay, Green Monkeys?re on the board!? Kirk shouts. ?There?s still enough time for the other teams to catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec now asks:
?After losing his place on the throne, did Vlad flee to: Hungary, Transylvania, or Westphalia??
Jackie gongs in: ?Hungary???
?That is correct!? Olmec shouts, and the Red Jaguars walk down to the bottom level.
?Whoo! That was quick!? Kirk comments. ?We?ve already got our first team going to the Temple Games! But who?s gonna join them: the Blue Barracudas, the Green Monkeys or the Purple Parrots? Olmec, continue.?
Olmec does so by asking:
?To get his power back, did Vlad join: The Order of the Phoenix, The Order of the Dragon???
Amanda stomps down first: ?The Order of the Dragon???
?Correct,? Olmec replies, and the Blue Barracudas can move down one step.
?Now this match is heating up,? Kirk comments. ?Purple Parrots can catch up. Next question.?
Olmec asks:
?Is the capital of Romania: Budapest???
Pat stomps down too early: ?Umm? Budapest???
?Incorrect,? replies Olmec. ?The other two choices are: Transylvania or Bucharest.?
Carolina buzzes in: ?Boo-cha-rest???
?Correct,? answers Olmec.
?It?s all tied up on that first step!? Kirk announces as the Purple Parrots move down to the second step. ?It?s anybody?s game now.  Let?s keep going.?
Olmec asks:
?The main character of a famous horror story was based on Vlad Dracula.  Was the character a: Werewolf, Zombie, or Vampire??
Carolina stomps down first again: ?It was a vampire.?
?That is correct,? Olmec replies, and the Purple Parrots get to step down again.
?Purple Parrots just need one more correct response and they?re headed to the Temple Games,? Kirk narrates. ?Still time for the other teams to catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec now asks:
?When Vlad threw a royal banquet, some of the nobles who threw him off the throne attended.  Did Vlad: Boil them in oil???
Tony gongs in: ?He boiled them in oil??
?Incorrect,? Olmec says. ?The other two choices are: He had them arrested, or He cut off their arms.?
Pat buzzes in: ?He had them arrested???
?That is correct,? Olmec replies, and the Green Monkeys get to move down to the third step alongside the Purple Parrots.
?Next response from the Green Monkeys and they go to the Temple Games,? says Kirk. ?Blue Barracudas can still catch up.  Next question.?
Olmec then asks:
?Vlad Dracula also gained another nickname due to his bloodthirsty ways.  Was he also called: Bad Vlad, Vlad the Impaler, or???
T.J. stomps down first: ?Vlad the Impaler???
?That is correct!? Olmec yells, and the Purple Parrots get to join the Red Jaguars on the second-to-last step.
?All right! We got our two teams right here!? Kirk announces with the audience cheering in the background. ?Going head-to-head in the Temple are the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots! Blue Barracudas and Green Monkeys, c?mon down here.? Kirk walks behind the two qualifying teams to stand near the other two teams. ?These guys gave it a great effort too.  We?ve got a nice gift for them and here?s what it is.? Tony, Amanda, Stephanie and Pat will each be receiving an Eastpak backpack as a parting gift.
Kirk is standing between the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots on the bottom Step of Knowledge. ?These two teams will be playing for the right to enter the Temple, and they?re gonna do it right after this!? The camera runs along the outside wall of the Temple?s upper floor and stops at the Room of Temple Gongs.  It then turns to peer into the room as it fades to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula
« Reply #2 on: April 16, 2007, 04:31:27 PM »
Kirk stands between the two teams and in front of the Steps of Knowledge. ?Welcome back to Legends,? he says. ?Now, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so let?s talk to our two tough teams.? He turns to interview the dark-haired boy on the Red Jaguars, who just happens to be as tall as Kirk. ?On the Red Jaguars, we have Jackie.  How old are you??
?Fourteen,? Jackie replies.
?And you?re all into basketball,? Kirk reads on the index card in front of his face. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well, I?m on my school team,? Jackie explains, ?power forward, play every day after school even when we don?t got a real game to play.?
?Wow, you?re really into it!? Kirk comments, then going to interview the brown-haired girl next to Jackie. ?And your partner here is Autumn.  How old are you??
?Twelve,? Autumn replies.
?And it says you admit you?re a bit of a tomboy,? Kirk reads on the index card. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? Autumn replies, ?I like to go rock climbing, I? um? I play a bit of baseball.  And? um? I wear a Devil Rays baseball cap a lot of the time.? She begins laughing as she says the last sentence.
?Don?t be embarrassed, maybe all those boy sports?ll pay off,? Kirk encourages Autumn. ?Let?s hear it for the Red Jaguars!? The audience applauds for a few seconds as Kirk goes to interview the brown-haired boy on the other team. ?But on the Purple Parrots we have T.J. How old are you??
?Twelve,? T.J. replies.
?And I understand you?re into swimming and football,? Kirk tells T.J. ?You as into them as Jackie into basketball??
?Maybe not so much,? T.J. says. ?But I? always play football with my friends on a? weekend.?
?You got a best position?? Kirk asks.
?Uhh? I dunno if it?s really my best,? T.J. answers, ?but I think I?m usually? uhh? wide receiver.?
?All right,? Kirk says, going to interview the brown-haired girl next to T.J. ?And Carolina, how old are you??
?Thirteen,? she replies.
?And I hear you?re all about dancing,? Kirk says. ?Tell me about that.?
?Well,? Carolina begins, ?I do? pretty much anything.  I? I?ve done ballet, hip-hop, tap I think? and? and lyrical dancing.?
?You?re gonna have to show some kind of a show in these Temple Games,? Kirk replies. ?Let?s hear it for the Purple Parrots!? The audience applauds again.

?All right!? Kirk says, excited. ?You guys can go get ready for the Temple Games now.? Jackie and Carolina walk offscreen in one direction, and T.J. and Autumn leave in the other direction. ?In the Temple Games, these two teams will be competing for?" he opens his pocket and pulls out a small gold medallion to show to the camera? "Pendants of Life.  They?ll need those Pendants to protect themselves from the Temple Guards as they make their way through Olmec?s Temple.  There are three Temple Games, and Olmec? tell us about Temple Game #1.?

Olmec begins:
?When Vlad was forced off the throne early in his reign, he had to escape to Hungary.  When Kirk gives the signal, climb on the wheel and adjust your weight to make the wheel spin.  When it makes one full rotation, it means you have traveled one mile toward Hungary.  The player who travels the most miles toward Hungary in 60 seconds wins.?
The camera fades to Kirk in front of the giant wheels marked with the show?s insignia. ?It?s gonna get spinny and dizzy out there!? he says. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? A clock appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
Jackie and Carolina take off and the wheels start rotating.  Jackie runs quite a bit faster than Carolina, but he falls off for the first time with 41 seconds to go, only a few seconds before Carolina falls off the first time.  They stay one more most of whatever time is left, but Carolina falls of again with 11 seconds left and then one more time just a couple seconds before the ceiling lights flash to end the game.
?Okay,? Kirk says, running over to read the spotters? scoreboards. ?Purple Parrots got 8 miles, but Red Jaguars got 12! Red Jaguars get a half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds for a second, then Kirk goes to interview Carolina. ?You? uh? had a little trouble staying on there,? he says. ?Tell me what was going on in your head.?
?Umm? I just wanted to catch up,? Carolina explains. ?So I, um, kept going faster.?
?Well, no worries,? says Kirk. ?You can catch up in the next Temple Game, it?s worth a half Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #2.?

Olmec continues:
?Members of the Order of the Dragon rode on armored horses.  In this game you must prove your horsemanship.  Hold on tight, because when Kirk gives the signal, the horse will begin to spin.  The player that?s still on after 60 seconds? or the player that stays on the longest? wins.?
?This is one wild horse,? Kirk says, standing in front of the mechanical horse machine. ?Let?s put 60 seconds on the clock.? The clock appears on the bottom corner of the screen as Autumn wraps her arms around the horse. ?On your mark, get set, GO!?
The horse begins spinning clockwise, and both Autumn and T.J. hold on tight.  Autumn can be seen struggling trying to cross her legs, but it doesn?t matter, as T.J. falls off with a whole 47 seconds to go.
?Okay, time?s up!? Kirk shouts, running over. ?Not time?s up? that?s end the end of the game! Real fast, but Autumn stayed on the longest, so Red Jaguars win another half Pendant of Life!? The audience applauds again as Kirk goes to talk to T.J. ?Had some trouble staying on,? Kirk says. ?Tell me what happened.?
?Umm,? T.J. struggles to explain, ?my fingers just slipped to easy.?
?Okay,? Kirk says. ?So it?s Red Jaguars got a full Pendant, Purple Parrots don?t have any yet, but this next game is worth a full Pendant.  It?s the third and final game.  Olmec, tell us about it.?

Olmec narrates:
?When Vlad Dracula regained the throne, he tortured the people of Romania in a number of cruel ways.  In this game, you will try to save the Romanians by stealing Vlad?s torture devices.  When Kirk gives the signal, crawl into the first cube, grab the first torture device, then crawl back with it and place it in your bin.  Then your partner will crawl out to get the next torture device.  Along the way you must try to avoid the swinging obstacles.
?The first team to steal all four torture devices? or the team that?s grabbed the most in 60 seconds? wins.?
?This game is just plain torture,? Kirk says. ?Let?s set the clock for one minute.? The clock appears on screen as Autumn and Carolina get into position. ?Purple Parrots need this game to tie.  Let?s get the sandbags back in position and then start swinging them.? The spotters do just that. ?On your marks, get set, GO!?
Autumn and Carolina crawl out at the same pace and both get to their respective pieces of an ancient gallows with 54 seconds left, and both return with them with 49 seconds to go.  The boys run out, but Jackie gets hit by a sandbag on the way to the second torture device, allowing T.J. to reach the torch with 40 seconds left.  Unfortunately, he gets hit on the way back, so a spotter puts back the torch as Carolina gets into position.
?Both teams doin? great so far!? Kirk comments as Autumn grabs the torch with 34 seconds still on the clock.  She then makes a slow return with it and puts it in the bin with only 20 seconds remaining, just after Carolina is hit by an obstacle.  Jackie makes it four cubes into the field to grab the shackles, but gets hit by a sandbag just after turning around.  It doesn?t matter that much, though; since there are only 6 seconds left when he?s hit and the ceiling lights flash just as Carolina finally reaches the torch.
?Well, let?s see,? Kirk says, bringing out the bins as the spotters stop the sandbags and the players run over. ?Purple Parrots got one piece of torture, Red Jaguars got one, two pieces of torture! Red Jaguars win the full Pendant of Life! That gives them two, Purple Parrots didn?t have any.  The Red Jaguars are goin? to the Temple!? Jackie and Autumn high-five, then Autumn jumps up and down as Jackie shakes hands with T.J. ?Purple Parrots gave it a great effort too.  Here?s what we got for you.? T.J. and Carolina will each be receiving a copy of Monster House on DVD.
The camera now shows Kirk standing to the camera-left side of Jackie and Autumn. ?We?ll see if the Red Jaguars can make it through Olmec?s Temple and retrieve the Dragon Medallion,? he announces, ?right after this!? The audience cheers, and the camera zooms in on the Dungeon and focuses on the skeleton nailed to the corner of the wall behind the ladder leading to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey.  The show?s title card appears, and the camera fades to commercial.

Rediscovery EP: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula
« Reply #3 on: April 16, 2007, 04:33:57 PM »
Kirk stands in front of the Temple's stairs with his hands on Jackie and Autumn's shoulders. "Welcome back to Legends," he says to the camera before turning around to talk to Olmec. "Olmec!" he shouts. "The Red Jaguars have proven themselves worthy and earned the right to enter your Temple.  But before they go, can you give them any hints to help them retrieve the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula?"
Olmec begins to give the rundown:
"You could start by climbing through the Crevasse and climbing down into the Great Chasm.  Then, race into the Forbidden Fountain.  Place the correct bowl to tip the scales, and you could choose to go up into the Burial Pit, or into the Junction of the Secret Shafts.  If you escape, you might have a chance to enter the Switch Inferno.  Hit the right actuator to go upstairs, or plow through the wall and into the Dungeon." The camera then moves to show the Dark Overlook, in which, for some reason, there is a broken lantern on the camera-right pedestal.
"Climb up the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage into the Dark Overlook, and correctly place all three torches to open the door to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey.  Assemble the statue, and you may be headed for the Knights? Barracks.  Place the sword in the correct sheath, and you could advance into the Laser Light Room.  Find the right combination to unleash the power of the laser, and swing on the rope back across the Great Chasm.  Then, pass through the Room of Temple Gongs, race down the stairs and back through the Temple Gate.  The choices are yours and yours alone." Olmec pauses for a second here. "You won 2 Pendants in the Temple Games.  Who's going first??
"I am," Autumn says, raising her hand in the air.
"Very well, Autumn," replies Olmec as Kirk hands out the Pendants of Life. "When Kirk gives the signal, you'll race through the gates into the Temple and make your way towards the Dragon Med? Dragon-Headed Medallion.  Hidden inside the Temple are three ventilation shafts that let out in the Junction of the Secret Shafts, as well as 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'll be Jackie's turn to enter and try his luck.  If you can reach the Medallion, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish.  Return through the gates with the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded? and here's how:"
?   For just making it into the Temple, they?re both going to get a camping package from Outdoor Products.
?   If they can grab the Dragon-Headed Medallion within three minutes, they?re also going to get an XBOX 360 game package.
?   And if they can get the Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula out of the Temple before 3 minutes is up, they?ll both be going to Krystal Cancun! Krystal Cancun, the resort for beach lovers, with excursions to Mayan ruins.  It?s rich in history and rich in pleasure.  Krystal Cancun, for a prize package totaling $13,196!

"Cancun, I love it," Kirk says, excited. "Now Autumn, maybe you could tell us your strategy.  How do you think you can get to the Dragon-Headed Medallion?"
"Well," Autumn explains, "I?m going down, and climbing through those ledge things, and I?m gonna go in the big pit and climb up the wall, and go into that room all the way up there?" she points at the Laser Light Room? "and, um, then I?ll go into the sarcophagus room in the middle, and, um, all the way left and?"
"Hopefully into the Dark Over Room and you?ll get the Medallion," Kirk finishes. "Okay then, let?s get you into position.  Get your mouthpieces in.  And let?s set the clock for three minutes." The clock then appears in the corner of the screen. "Let?s lower the gate, Olmec!"
Olmec moans as he lowers the gate.  Autumn moves into position as directed by Kirk.
"On your mark, get set? GO!"

?There she goes! Down the slide into the Ledges!? Kirk shouts as Autumn races into the Temple and crawls belly-down down the slide to enter the Crevasse. ?She?s in the Ledges, gotta get to the Dark Room, good thing they got two Pendants.? Autumn accidentally ventures down into the Cave of Sighs entrance, but then corrects herself and uses the lower crawl tube to enter the Great Chasm. (2:41) She then walks across to where the door into the Forbidden Fountain is and fits her hands into the indents in the walls, beginning to scale the wall. ?Easy path for a mountain climber like Autumn,? Kirk comments as Autumn reaches the ledge and opens the door to the Laser Light Room. ?I told her being a tomboy would come in handy!?
?Go Autumn!? Jackie shouts as Autumn runs up the stairs to enter the Laser Light Room. (2:27) She jogs over to the column and begins aligning the sections starting from the top down, as most players do.  The laser dome in the column lights up with 2:08 remaining, and Autumn immediately climbs down into the Burial Pit.  She looks around for a second, then remembers what has to be done in that room.  She rummages through the sarcophagus for the key, then reaches over to the door leading into the Knights? Barracks and sticks it on the keypad. ?I guess that door?s not gonna open!? Kirk comments, and Autumn looks around again before deciding to climb down through the sarcophagus and enter the Forbidden Fountain. (1:52) She jumps off the ladder and goes to walk over to the scales, but before she can pick up one of the bowls out jumps the first TEMPLE GUARD!
Facing the camera, Autumn jumps up and screams.  She then turns around and sees the Temple Guard, repeatedly gesturing as if to say ?Give me the Pendant!? Autumn then hands him her Pendant of Life, and returns to the scales in the front of the room.  She places one bowl on the upper end of the scales, and the switch in the scales flips the other way, opening both doors leading out of the Forbidden Fountain.  Autumn looks around and then runs over into the Junction of the Secret Shafts, where she meets the second TEMPLE GUARD!
?She?s outta there now! Go Jackie!? Kirk yells as the Junction of the Secret Shafts Temple Guard removes Autumn from the Temple with 1:27 to go.  Jackie follows Autumn?s path by sliding down into the Crevasse, and he takes the lower crawl tube to enter the Great Chasm.  He finds his point of balance to walk across the floor to the wall, and goes through the now-open door leading into the Forbidden Fountain.  He runs through there and across the Junction of the Secret Shafts. (1:05) He tries both door actuators, the second one leading him into the Switch Inferno.
?These guys made a great team all day,? Kirk says as Jackie runs through the wall to enter the Dungeon. ?They were first on the Steps of Knowledge, first in the Temple Games.  And right now he?s just under the Medallion! Go Jackie!? Jackie uses the ladder to hoist himself onto the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage, and then runs up it to enter the Dark Overlook.  He runs over to the pedestals in the front of the room, confusedly looks over at the lantern on the camera-right one, then, with 43 seconds remaining, grabs the DRAGON HEADED MEDALLION!
?He?s got it!? Kirk shouts, and Autumn jumps for joy, screaming excitedly. ?All the doors are open!? Jackie races back through the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the Knights? Barracks, then crawls through the tunnels to pass through the Burial Pit. (0:26) The Medallion around his wrist along with his Pendant of Life, he grabs the rope and swings across the Great Chasm.  He then races through the Room of Temple Gongs and down the stairs to pass through the Temple Gate with a whole 14 seconds left!
?They did it! They got it all!? Kirk announces as Autumn pounces on Jackie to hug him out of excitement. ?They got the camping gear? the XBOX 360s? they?re goin? to Cancun! And we gotta get outta here.  I don?t wanna, but we gotta.  Join us next time for another Legends of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!? Jackie holds the Medallion in the palm of his hand, and waves it to show the audience.  Autumn hugs Kirk as the credits begin to roll.

Rediscovery EP: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula

Temple Run Summary
Episode 22px]

Name of Artifact: The Dragon-Headed Medallion of Vlad Dracula
Season: 2
Layout: 1 (5 overall)
Result: Made it!
Time Remaining: 0:14
Team: Red Jaguars
Pendants Won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Dark Overlook




It's not that this episode really featured an odd Temple design, but the players made it look that way.  Autumn had a relatively well-built strategy, but her plan was out the window when she couldn't advance left from the Burial Pit.  She did complete the objective in the Forbidden Fountain, opening both the doors leading into the Great Chasm and the Junction of the Secret Shafts, and then was taken out in the Junction roughly halfway into the run.

As it turns out, the Temple Run only required the players to enter seven rooms to grab the Dragon-Headed Medallion, and after going across the entire bottom floor, Jackie climbed up into the Dark Overlook and grabbed it with 0:43 remaining.  Twenty-nine seconds later, he reappeared at the gate to record the win.

Trivia and Records:
This was the first episode of The Rediscovery in which the Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots faced off in the Temple Games, and also featured the fastest Temple Game completion to date? the second game, the "horse ride" game, lasted for only thirteen seconds.

As a team, Autumn and Jackie entered all twelve rooms of the Temple.  Finally, just before Jackie picks up the Medallion, he takes a look at the oddly-shaped lantern on one of the other pedestals in the room? that lantern was the Melted Lamp of Paul Revere, whose episode was filmed on the same day as this one.

I thought the orange iguanas made it across the moat, not the green monkeys.
