This is becoming addicting. :lol:

Moat:
1st Green
2nd Blue
3rd Red
4th Silver
Orange and Purple DNQ and go home with some Chef Boyardee! :roll:

SoK:
1st Green
2nd Blue
Red got 0 and Silver got 1 and both teams go home with some Skechers shoes.

Temple Games:
1st game: Green gets 1/2 pendant.
2nd game: Green gets another 1/2.
3rd game: Blue gets full pendant and forces a tiebreaker.
Tiebreaker: Blue pulls it off and is going to the temple! Green goes home with a $50 savings bond.

Temple Run:
Team: Blue
Artifact location: Shrine of the Silver Monkey, again. This is season 3's layout by the way.
Guard locations: Chamber of the Sacred Markers, Quicksand Bog.
Outcome: Reached artifact. That's three times that's happened to me. :roll:
Diagram:



The Blue Barracudas showed that they were not a bad team in this run. This was a hard layout. The temple guards were brutal in this run. Also, the only door in the Ledges to open was the one that leads to the Pit's rubble, so both players had to climb to get to the Chamber, the only door that opened from the Pit. The second runner was fast and was able to get the item with a few seconds left.

I've decided to do one, putting my own little spin on things partly based on RJF's stuff.

Moat:
Red Jaguars - 4th
Blue Barracudas - 2nd
Green Monkeys - DNQ
Orange Iguanas - DNQ
Purple Parrots - 1st
Silver Snakes - 3rd

Steps of Knowledge:
I used a list randomizer with 3 entries for each team, that way it generates a sequence of who got which questions.

1st question - Red Jaguars
2nd question - Blue Barracudas
3rd question - Red Jaguars
4th question - Blue Barracudas
5th question - Blue Barracudas - The Blue Barracudas are the 1st team down
6th question - Silver Snakes
7th question - Red Jaguars - The Red Jaguars are the 2nd team down

Overall results:
Red Jaguars - 2nd
Blue Barracudas - 1st
Purple Parrots - 0 correct
Silver Snakes - 1 correct

Temple Games:

1st Temple Game:
Red Jaguars - 1
Blue Barracudas - 1
Result: Tie.  Both teams get a half pendant.

2nd Temple Game:
Red Jaguars - 1
Blue Barracudas - 6
Result: Blue Barracudas win a half pendant.

3rd Temple Game: (I used 4 dice for this one, one for each player since it's the team game)
Red Jaguars - 4/3
Blue Barracudas - 3/4
Result: Tie.  Both teams get a full pendant.

Overall result:
Red Jaguars: 1 1/2 pendants (T-L-T)
Blue Barracudas: 2 pendants (T-W-T)
The Blue Barracudas are going to the Temple!


Temple Run:
This is the thing I really did differently.  First, I used an integer generator to determine which room the artifact is in.  Then, I used a Gaussian distribution to determine how many rooms were necessary to get to the artifact. (The reason I used Gaussian distribution was to keep it generally within the range 5-10, but also to make the highest and lowest numbers less probable.)  Then another integer generator to determine where the Temple Guards are positioned AND another Gaussian distribution to determine how many guards are encountered.  I assemble the temple layout myself in a way that satisfies these conditions.  Finally, yet another Gaussian distribution determines the player skill levels and I use all that to judge how well the team will do.

This is the function that I use that takes the player skill values to determine how long it takes them to get through each room.
Getting to the first room from the gate: 5 seconds
Giving a Temple Guard a pendant: 3 seconds
Completing each new objective: (25 - 1.5*Intelligence) + (5 - .5*Strength) seconds
Simply passing through a room: (5 - .5*Intelligence) + (8 - .5*Strength) seconds

So, without further ado, let's get on with it.

Temple layout: Season 3
Artifact room: Shrine of the Silver Monkey
Required # of rooms: 8
Team: Blue Barracudas
Number of pendants: 2
Player 1 strength/intelligence: 6/6
Player 2 strength/intelligence: 7/4
Temple Guard locations: Ledges, Tomb of the Headless Kings, Room of the Ancient Warriors
# of Temple Guards encountered: 2

Diagram:



Result: Artifact Grabbed!
Notes: The frontrunner went through the rooms with a decent pace.  He reached the Tomb of the Headless Kings with about 1:50 before being taken out.  The second runner was a little bit faster, but struggled more with the objectives.  The second runner grabbed the artifact with about 10 seconds left, not nearly enough time to get out with it.  Overall, the team was a little bit above average, but with this layout, it just wasn't quite enough.

I forgot to add in that using the Random Integer Generator can determine Solo or Team effort (1 is solo; 2 is team)

Let me try something.

Moat:
1. Purple
2. Orange
3. Green
4. Silver

Steps of Knowledge:
1. Silver
2. Green
Purple Parrots: 1 question right
Orange Iguanas: 0 questions right

Temple Games:
Silver: W-W-W
Green: L-L-L

Temple Run:
Artifact Location: The Jester's Court
Temple Guards: The Chamber of the Sacred Markers, The Shrine of the Silver Monkey, The Ledges
First Speed/Intelligence: 8/5
Second Speed/Intelligence: 9/1 (Oh Lord)
Outcome: Win! (I got a 2 for team effort, but it's impossible, so we'll just pretend it's solo)

Diagram:

Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.
