Kirk: They'll have to pass some tough physical and mental tasks, and in the end only one team will have the right to enter Olmec's Temple. But first, they have to cross the moat, and Olmec will tell us how they'll do it today.

Olmec: Before you lies a rope. The first player will swim across with the rope, wind it around the pole and hold on tight. The second player will then grap the tope rope and walk across the bottom round. The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!

Kirk: Teams, are you ready?

Teams: Yeah!!

Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?

Olmec: Let's Rock and Roll.

Kirk: OK then, on your mark, get set, go!

*Moat Crossing*

1st: Purple Parrots
2nd: Orange Iguanas
3rd: Blue Barracudas
4th: Silver Snakes

Kirk: The Green Monkeys and Red Jaguars came up a little short, but we have a great gift for you, and here's what it is.

*They get Tube Socks*

Kirk: As the quest continues, It is now time for Olmec to tell us about the Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette. But pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can get you one step closer to Olmec's Temple.

*Olmec tells the legend*

Kirk: Thank you, Olmec. Tell us, where is the Necklace?

Olmec: The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette can be found in the Bamboo Forest.

*Teams answer the questions*

1st: Orange Iguanas
2nd: Blue Barracudas

Kirk: The Silver Snakes and Purple Parrots gave it their all, but we have a great gift for you, and here's what it is.

*They get the Complete first season of American Dad on DVD*

Kirk: These two teams will fight for the right to enter Olmec's Temple, and they'll do it right after this!

*end commercial*

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so give it up for Maya and Jason of the Orange Iguanas and Rebecca and Crispin of the Blue Barracudas. Now, in the Temple Games, the teams will compete for pendants of life. They need these pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are 3 games, so let's get to it!

*the games are played*

Kirk: The Blue Barracudas have a pendant and a half, and the Orange Iguanas have a half pendant, the Blue Barracudas are going to the temple!
The Orange Iguanas gave it a gret ride, we enjoyed having them, and we have a great gift for them, and here's what it is.

*they get $50 Target gift cards*

*fade to commercial*

*end commercial*

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. The Blue Barracudas have proven themselves worthy and now Olmec will give them some information to help them retrieve the Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette.

Olmec: You could start by running up the stairs to the Room of the Royal Gongs. Press the correct gong and you could gain access to the Troubled Bridge. Croos the bridge, and you could go up to the King's Storeroom. Smash the clay pots to find the key that could open the Room of the Mandarin Hand. Push in all five fingers and you could gain access to the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Place yourself in the correct suit of armor and you could choose to enter the Shriiine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the Statue, and you could enter the Viper's Nest. Release the Snakes from the correct vase, and you could climb down to the Dungeon. Smash through the wall to unlock the Tomb of Ancient Kings. Find the key, and you could go to the Bamboo Forest, where you can grab the Diamond Necklace. If you escape, you may have a chance to sit on the Throne of the Pretender. If the stone slab is up, race through the wheel room, climb through the Cave of Size, and back through the Temple Gates. The choices are yours and yours alone. You have one and a half pendants. Who's going first?

Rebecca: I am!

Olmec: Very well, Rebecca. When Kirk says go, you'll race into the temple in search of the Diamond Necklace. Hidden inside the Temple are temple guards. ou can give one your pendant and go o, but if you don't have a pendant, you'll be taken out, and it will be Crispin's turn to try your luck. Hidden somewhere in the temple is the other half of your pendant. If you find it, you'll gain an extra life. If you bring the necklace out of the temple within 3 minutes, you will be handsomely rewarded, and here's how.

Announcer: For making it to the temple, you'll both get a $250 Target Gift Card! If you get the Necklace within 3 minutes, you'll recieve an Xbox 360 with 4 games: Top Spin 2, Tomb Raider: Legend, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Project Gotham Racing 3! If you bring the necklace out of the temple within 3 minutes, you'll both be headed to Puerto Rico!

Kirk: Ooh, Puerto Rico! Hope we can get them there. Rebecca, in position. On your mark, get set, go!

TEMPLE SUMMARY

Episode: The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette
Layout: Season 4, Layout 5
Team: Blue Barracudas
Artifact Location: The Bamboo Forest
Result: Made It!
Time Left: 0:16
Diagram:


Rebecca started in the Cave of Size, but only the door to the room of Royal Gongs opened, whee she met her first guard. After progressing to the Mandarin Hand room, she, trying doors leading towards the artifact, went down to the Throne Room, where she was taken out. Crispin raced in, going directly to the Royal Gong room, followed his partner's trail to the Mandarin Hand room, finding the half pendant on the way, and went up to the Storeroom. He smashed the pots, found the right suit of armor, and assembled the statue. He didn't notice that the Shrine-Dungeon passage opened, and he went to the Viper's Nest, meeting thethird guard and finding a dead end. After backtracking to the Shrine, he went down to the Dungeon, busted through the wall, found the key and entered the forest. He grabbed the necklace and raced out with 16 seconds to go.

Comments are welcome! :)

It's pretty miraculous that the team managed to enter every room of the temple before grabbing the artifact and still finish with time to spare. That was one fast team!

I have no frickin' clue how they went into two dead ends and every single room yet still got the artifact. Maybe a little bit unrealistic, but hey - they could've been very fast. Nice job.

Okay.  I know this was from last season, but I hated that there was barely any detail at all in this fanfic and so I made my own transcript for it.

The four remaining 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 Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette.  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 story:
"One of the most beautiful and elegant queens of France was Marie Antoinette.  She was born in Austria, but brought to France when she was very little.  When she was only fourteen, Marie heard she was going to be married off to the prince of France, Louis the Sixteenth.
(Imitating Marie's voice) "'I'm getting married? Uh! Daddy, I'm fourteen, I can't even drive yet! And you expect me to take care of a royal family and their royal messes?'
"Marie's father Francis replied:
"'You'll do as I say or no caviar for you, young lady.  Now march! Your wedding gown is waiting.'
"Grudgingly, Marie traveled to the palace at Versailles, but here she changed her tune.  The walls were covered in enormous mirrors and gold, but the surprises didn't stop there.  Marie found out that she would be wearing a wedding gown encrusted with diamonds and pearls, and she would be given a collection of treasures of previous French queens.
"'WOW!' she shouted, her eyes sparkling when she saw the collection. 'Emeralds, pearls, rubies? a golden pepperoni?? Wait? what's this?' She pulled out an unbelievably expensive necklace made of forty diamonds. 'Jackpot! Strike what I said before, I'll marry this rich dude! Looooou-ie! Where ARE you?'
"And she went to find her future husband and prepare for her wedding.  Marie wore that diamond necklace on her wedding day and every day thereafter until she died.  Your quest is to find the Diamond Necklace and bring it back here."

"Thank you Olmec," Kirk says after Olmec finishes the story. "So, where is this Diamond Necklace?"
Olmec replies:
"The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette can be found in the Bamboo Forest." The camera zooms in on the Diamond Necklace lying on the front wall of the Bamboo Forest, then fades back to Kirk.

"Teams," Kirk begins, "you are now standing on the Steps of Knowledge, and in a minute, Olmec will ask you a question.  If you think you know the answer, I want you to stomp down on the 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." Kirk continues talking as he walks down the steps. "The first two teams to make it to the bottom level will be one step closer to the Temple of Olmec.  Olmec, we're now ready for your first question."

Olmec begins:
"Was Marie Antoinette going to marry the prince of??"
The girl on the Blue Barracudas rings in: "France??"
"That is correct," Olmec replies.
"All right! Step down!" Kirk shouts, and the two players on the Blue Barracudas move down a step. "Blue Barracudas've scored.  Next question, Olmec."
Olmec asks:
"Was the prince of France??"
The girl on the Purple Parrots stomps down very early: "Uhh?? French??"
"No, that is not one of our three choices," Olmec replies. "Was he: Henry the Eighth, Louis the Sixteenth, or William of Orange?"
The boy on the Orange Iguanas buzzes in: "Louis the Sixteenth??"
"That is correct," Olmec answers.
"Okay! Orange Iguanas on the board!" Kirk comments as the Orange Iguanas move down a step. "Next question."
Olmec now asks:
"Was Marie born in??"
"Austria," the boy on the Silver Snakes says very early.
"Wait, let me call your team first," says Kirk. "Silver Snakes."
"Austria," the boy repeats.
"That is correct," says Olmec, and the Silver Snakes move down to the second step.
"That match is starting to heat up," comments Kirk. "But the Purple Parrots can catch up too.  Olmec, continue."
Olmec does so by asking:
"How old was Marie when she was married: Twelve, fourteen, or eighteen?"
After a second, the girl on the Blue Barracudas stomps down first: "Was she fourteen??"
"Yes, she was!" Olmec replies, allowing the Blue Barracudas to move down another step.
"And now the Blue Barracudas are only one step away from the Temple Games," Kirk narrates. "But we're looking for two teams.  Olmec, next question."
Olmec continues:
"Marie Antoinette traveled to the royal palace of France to prepare for her wedding.  Is this palace called: Marseilles, Versailles, or Moulin Rouge?"
The boy on the Silver Snakes gongs in: "Moulin Rouge??"
"Incorrect," Olmec replies.
Then the boy on the Purple Parrots stomps down and guesses: "Marseilles??"
"Incorrect," Olmec answers. "Versailles was the answer."
"All right," Kirk replies. "Next question."
Olmec asks:
"Was Marie Antoinette's wedding gown encrusted with diamonds an??"
The boy on the Orange Iguanas rings in early: "Diamonds??"
"That is not one of our three choices," Olmec replies. "Was it encrusted with diamonds and: Sapphires, Tanzanites, or Pearls?"
The girl on the Blue Barracudas stomps down and shouts: "Diamonds and pearls!"
"That is correct," Olmec says in response, and the Blue Barracudas walk down onto the bottom step.
"All right! We've got our first team going on to the Temple Games!" Kirk announces. "But who's gonna join them: the Silver Snakes, the Purple Parrots or the Orange Iguanas? Next question."
Olmec asks:
"What is the capital of France??"
The boy on the Orange Iguanas rings in: "Paris."
"That is correct," Olmec replies, allowing the Orange Iguanas to move onto the second-to-last step.
"All right, one more right answer for the Orange Iguanas and they're going onto the Temple Games," says Kirk. "Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes can still catch up.  Next question."
Olmec now asks:
"Did Marie receive the Diamond Necklace: As a wedding gift, From her father, or??"
The girl on the Orange Iguanas buzzes in: "Wedding gift??"
"That is correct!" Olmec shouts, and the Orange Iguanas join the Blue Barracudas on the bottommost step.
"We've got our two teams!" Kirk announces as he walks up onto the second-to-last tier of steps. "The Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas! Purple Parrots, Silver Snakes, come over here." The Purple Parrots and Silver Snakes move a couple steps towards Kirk. "You guys gave it your all, but we have a great gift for you, and here's what it is." The Purple Parrots and the Silver Snakes will be receiving copies of Zathura on DVD.
The camera now shows Kirk with the Blue Barracudas and the Orange Iguanas next to him on the Steps of Knowledge. "These two teams will be playing for the right to enter Olmec's Temple, and they're gonna do it right after this!" The camera then turns all the way over to the Tomb of Ancient Kings and stops in front of one of the golden doors before fading to commercial.

The two remaining teams stand on either side of Kirk in front of the Pit of Despair. "Welcome back to Legends," Kirk says. "Now, the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest, so give it up for Maya and Jason of the Orange Iguanas!" The long-brown-haired girl and short brown-haired boy clap as Kirk shouts their names. "And Rebecca and Crispin of the Blue Barracudas!" The blond girl high-fives the tall black boy on her right. "Why don't you guys go set up for the Temple Games?" the girls go in one direction and the guys in another? "and I'll tell you what's gonna happen here.  Now, in the Temple Games, the teams will compete for?" he opens his pocket and pulls out a small gold medallion to show to the camera? "Pendants of Life. They need those Pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded Temple Guards as they make their way through the Temple. There are three Games, so let's get to it! Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #1."

Olmec begins:
"Marie Antoinette was born in Austria, but her family had to take a long horse ride to reach France.  Here you will ride on a very similar horse.  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!"
The camera segues to Kirk in front of the mechanical horse machine. "That's one wild horse? it's spinning, it's gonna get dizzy," he comments. "Let's put 60 seconds on the clock." The clock then appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. "On your mark, get set, GO!"
Crispin and Jason hold on tight as the horse begins to turn around, and they manage to make it around seven times.  Jason's fingers begin to slip after a while, and when he falls off the horse, the game stops with 22 seconds still on the countdown clock.
"That's it!" Kirk shouts as Crispin and Jason step off the safety mats and join him. "They're dizzy, they're tired, but Blue Barracudas stayed on the longer.  They win a half Pendant of Life!" The audience applauds for a moment. "Orange Iguanas can catch up in the next game, it's worth a half Pendant.  Olmec, tell us about it."

Olmec continues:
"Marie Antoinette went to Versailles, the royal palace of France, to meet her fianc? Louis the Sixteenth.  Versailles is an enormous palace and made of a great number of rooms, so it would be very easy to get lost.  But in this game, you will help Marie find Louis.  You will only have to choose between five rooms: Hameau, Chapel, Salon of Mercury, Hall of Mirrors, and Peace Drawing Room.  When Kirk gives the signal, take your stopper and put it in the hole for the room where you think Louis is.  If you're right, nothing will happen, but if you're wrong, you'll be squirted with waters from the Seine.  Then remove your stoppers and try again! The player who makes the most correct guesses in 60 seconds wins!"
"Where's Louis?" Kirk asks. "We're gonna find out.  Let's set the clock for 60 seconds." The clock then appears in the bottom-right corner of the screen. "On your mark, get set? make your choice!" Rebecca places her stopper in the Hall of Mirrors, and Maya puts hers on the Salon of Mercury. "And? squirt!" Water squirts Rebecca from the Salon of Mercury hole, but Maya stays dry. "Make another choice!" Kirk urges them, and so Rebecca pulls her stopper out and places it on the Hameau, and Maya chooses the Peace Drawing Room. "And? squirt!" Water squirts both girls from the Hall of Mirrors. "Nobody scored! Make your choice!" Gameplay continues, and the girls get to make thirteen choices each.  Time runs out just as Rebecca is locking in a fourteenth choice.
"Okay!" Kirk says, about to read the spotters' scoreboards. "It looks like Blue Barracudas found Louis three times, but Orange Iguanas founrd him four times! Orange Iguanas win a half Pendant of Life!" The audience applauds again. "But this next game is worth a full Pendant.  It's the third and final game.  Olmec, tell us about Temple Game #3."

Olmec narrates:
"Marie received many expensive wedding gifts to encourage her to marry Louis.  In this game, you must bring the gifts to her.  When Kirk gives the signal, grab one of the jewel-encrusted wedding gifts and go to meet your partner at the middle of the track. Then pass the gift to your partner, who will slide back and place it in your bin. Then go back and do it again!  The team with the most wedding gifts in their bin after 60 seconds wins!?
?It?s all tied up. Half Pendant apiece,? Kirk reminds the audience. ?Let?s find out the outcome. So let?s set the clock for 60 seconds. On your mark, get set, GO!?
The players grab onto the raised sides of the tracks and walk against the force of the bungee cords attaching them to the walls behind them. The cords are only just long enough so that the players can meet in the middle, and the players had a lot of trouble walking against the force of the cords. The teams do score a few times before time runs out, however.
?All righty then,? Kirk says as he walks down along the space between the tracks and grabs the teams? bins. The kids run over to join him as soon as they can. ?Orange Iguanas got one, two wedding gifts," he says, tossing aside the emerald bracelet and diamond headband, "Blue Barracudas got one, two? three wedding gifts!" He drops the gold-and-pearl chatelaine in his hand. "They get the full Pendant, that gives them a Pendant and a half, the Orange Iguanas had a half.  The Blue Barracudas are goin' to the Temple!" Rebecca lets out a yelp of excitement and high-tens Crispin twice. "The Orange Iguanas gave it a great ride, we enjoyed having them, and we have a great gift for them, and here's what it is." Jason and Maya will each be receiving a $50 Target gift card.
Kirk stands on Rebecca and Crispin's left. "We'll see if the very excited Blue Barracudas can make it through Olmec's Temple and retrieve the Diamond Necklace? right after this!" Another camera runs along the wall of the Temple's upper floor until it reaches the Room of the Ancient Warriors, then it scrolls down to show the Bamboo Forest and the Diamond Necklace in there.

The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antionette
« Reply #12 on: February 01, 2007, 03:45:10 PM »
Kirk stands in front of the Temple's step with his hands on Rebecca and Crispin's shoulders. "Welcome back to Legends," he says. "You two have proven yourselves worthy and now have earned the right to enter the Temple.  But first, Olmec'll give you some information to help them retrieve the Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette."
Olmec begins to give the rundown:
"You could start by climbing through the Ledges, and climbing down into the Pit of Despair.  Turn the wheel to lift the slab, then race into the Throne Room." The camera pans to show the Season 1-style Throne of the Pretender. "Sit on the Throne of the Pretender, and you could choose to go up? into the Room of the Mandarin Hand, or into the Bamboo Forest, where you can grab the Diamond Necklace! If you escape, you might have a chance to enter the Tombs of the Ancient Kings.  Find the right key to go upstairs OR bust through the wall and into the Dungeon!
"Next, climb up the ladder into the Viper's Nest, and pull the snakes from the jars to open the door to the SHRINE of the Silver Monkey! Assemble the statue and you may be headed toward the Room of the Ancient Warriors! Place yourself in the correct armor, which will allow you into the King's Storeroom.  Smash the clay pots to find the key, then run across the Troubled Bridge." The camera then pans across the Troubled Bridge, which is now hung so that the central door rather than the topmost one is accessible. "Then, pass through the Room of Royal Gongs, rrrace down the STAIRS and back to the Temple Gate.  The choices are yours and yours ALONE!" Olmec pauses for a second here. "You won 1? Pendants in the Temple Games.  Who's going first??
"I am," says Rebecca.
"Very well, Rebecca!" 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 Diamond Necklace.  Hidden inside the Temple are Temple Guards, assigned to protect three specific rooms.  You can trade your Pendant for an extra life and go on, but if you're caught without a Pendant, you'll be taken out of the Temple? and it'll be Crispin's turn to enter and try his luck.  Hidden somewhere inside the Temple is the other half of your Pendant.  If you can find it and you're carrying the other half, you'll get an extra life.  If you can reach the Diamond Necklace, all the doors of the Temple will instantly unlock, and the Temple Guards will vanish.  Return through the gates with the Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded? and here's how!"

?   For making it to the temple, you'll both get a $250 Target Gift Card!
?   If you can get to the Necklace within three minutes, you'll recieve an XBOX 360 with four games: Top Spin 2, Tomb Raider: Legend, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Project Gotham Racing 3!
?   If you can bring the Diamond Necklace out of the temple within 3 minutes, you'll both be headed to Puerto Rico!

"Ooh, Puerto Rico! Hope we can get them there!" Kirk says, excited. "Mouthpieces in.  Lower the gate, Olmec!"
Olmec moans as he lowers the gate.
"And let's set the clock? for three minutes." The clock appears in the bottom right corner of the screen. "On your mark Rebecca, get set, GO!"

"There she goes!" Kirk shouts as Rebecca races up the steps and slides down into the Ledges. "Up into the Temple with a Pendant and a half!" Rebecca hits the actuator for the lower crawl tube, then climbs to reach the higher one.  When that doesn't work either, she climbs up into the Room of the Royal Gongs with 2:45 remaining.  The first gong she hits opens the door, but just as she's about to leave out comes the first TEMPLE GUARD!
Rebecca shrieks, then hands her Pendant to the Temple Guard and passes into the somewhat crooked Troubled Bridge.  She hits the actuator for the Room of the Mandarin Hand, signaling to Crispin before going on.  Also, the rock slab in the Pit of Despair rises as Rebecca enters the Room of the Mandarin Hand. (2:31) She begins with the index finger and moves to the right, but when she pushes the ring finger against the globe the doors leading upward and downward from the room open.  She then descends into the Throne Room.  She climbs down the ladder and jumps onto the seat of the Throne, but looks confused when the door into the Bamboo Forest doesn't open.  But before she can leave for the Pit of Despair, out jumps the second TEMPLE GUARD!
Crispin rushes into the Temple with 2:11 left and a half Pendant in hand.  He races through the Room of the Royal Gongs and across the Troubled Bridge, but stops to grab the other half of his Pendant from the Room of the Mandarin Hand actuator.
"He's got the other half Pendant!" Kirk announces, and the audience bursts into loud cheers as Crispin climbs up from the Room of the Mandarin Hand to the King's Storeroom. (1:54) He punches all three pots to find the key, which fits into the first pedestal.  The door opens into the Room of the Ancient Warriors, and he runs down the steps to enter there with 1:38 remaining.  The first suit of armor he tries does the trick, so he passes into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and jumps up to reach for the pieces of the statue.  Crispin puts the monkey together with 1:08 left, and the doors into both the Viper's Nest and the Dungeon open.  He races into the Viper's Nest, only to meet the third TEMPLE GUARD!
As he hands over his Pendant of Life fragments to the Temple Guard, Crispin realizes his mistake.  He doubles back into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and descends into the Dungeon. "He's almost got the Necklace!" Kirk announces. "Just gotta unlock the Ancient Kings!" He then plows through the wall and enters the Tomb of Ancient Kings with exactly a minute left.  He quickly finds the key in the sarcophagus, and places it on the right keypad on his first try, and enters the Bamboo Forest with 47 seconds left.  He carefully crawls between the bamboo shoots and grabs the DIAMOND NECKLACE!
"He's got it!" Kirk shouts as Crispin makes it to the door into the Throne Room. "All the doors are open! Rebecca's goin' wild!" Crispin races through the Throne Room and into the Pit of Despair with 28 seconds still on the clock.  Holding the Necklace on his arm, he scales the ladder in the Pit of Despair and enters the Ledges with time ticking down.  Finally he escapes the Ledges, crawls back up the slide and makes it down the stairs to greet and ecstatic Rebecca and Kirk with 15 seconds left!
"They got it!" Kirk announces, holding up the Diamond Necklace for everyone to see. "They won it all! The Target gift cards, the XBOX game packages? they're goin' to Puerto RI-co! This was a great team, a real strong team, and they got it all.  And we gotta get outta here.  Join us next time for another great adventure and another great Legend of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!" The three of them wave at the camera, and Rebecca hugs Crispin as the credits roll.

The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antionette

Temple Run Summary
The Diamond Necklace of Marie Antoinette

This was definetely a strange Temple Layout.  For once the Troubled Bridge was connected to the central door instead of the topmost door of the central column.  However, it's probably because of this that this episode turned out to be a win.  Rebecca went first and cleared five rooms before being removed from the Temple in the Throne Room with 2:12 left.  However, if the Troubled Bridge wasn't crooked and she had to enter the King's Storeroom before reaching the Room of the Mandarin Hand, there's no telling how much time she would've used up before being taken out.

Crispin found his other half Pendant before entering the Room of the Mandarin Hand.  This guy was among the fastest runners of Season 4 (Troy and Olympia from The Sandal of Pheidippides, Kevin from The Missing Shoe and Driving Glove of Joey Hand and Connor from Caecilius's Ring also made that list,) but what made this run sorta close was that he pulled a Lost Hornpipe? running into the Viper's Nest, then changing his mind and going back to take the diagonal passage.  However, unlike in The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain, there was a Temple Guard there this time, so Crispin had to give up his Pendant fragments before backtracking.  The Bamboo Forest was the only room he didn't blaze through, since the bamboo stalks made maneuvers tricky.  But he didgrab the Diamond Necklace with 0:39 to go, and took the lower route out to record the win with 15 seconds still on the clock.

Notes: Crispin was, if I recall correctly, the fifth person to enter all the rooms of the Temple during his run. (The first four were Brett from The Diary of Dr. Livingstone, Randy from The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen, Troy from The Sandal of Pheidippides and Connor from Caecilus's Ring.)
