The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula
« on: August 16, 2006, 03:38:42 PM »
Episode 12: ?The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula?

*the camera zooms in on an ancient lush jungle, the palms are moving away as an elephant is heard*

*all the palms are gone, showing Olmec*

Olmec: Legends of the Hidden Temple. With your guide? Kirk Fogg!

*Kirk is shown slidding down a zipline & jumping off into the usual area*

Kirk: Thank you everyone. Thank you Olmec. Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple. The rooms are The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan temple guards. Only Olmec knows the legend behind each of the treasures in his temple. Which one are we going to hear about today?

Olmec: The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula.

Kirk: The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula! Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Flower. Will it be *camera zooms into each team as they cheer & the usual* The Red Jaguars? The Blue Barracudas? The Green Monkeys? The Orange Iguanas? The Purple Parrots? Or the Silver Snakes? They?re going to have to pass some tough mental and physical tests, 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 have to do it today.

Olmec: Each team will have a set of monkey bars going across the moat above them. On go, the first player will make it across the monkey bars to the other side. If they fall before they get to the other side, they will have to go back. When they make it across, they'll throw an inner-tube (attached to a rope tied to the pole) to their partner. If the tube is close enough, the partner will jump in it & the first player will pull the rope so the tube & player can get across. When the second player gets across, they will run over & hit the gong.*Kirk bangs the Silver Snakes? gong*. The first four teams to hit their gong will go on to the next round.

Kirk: Alright, teams are you ready?!

*the teams cheer*

Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?!

Olmec: You bet!

Kirk: On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*the first players start going across the monkey bars*

*the Blue Barracudas have an early lead, with the Silver Snakes, Red Jagaurs, & Green Monkeys behind*

*Red Jaguars fall, along with the Purple Parrots, so the order now is Blue Barracudas, Silver Snakes, Green Monkeys, & Orange Iguanas*

*those 4 teams get across & start throwing the tubes, while Red Jaguars & Purple Parrots are still on the monkey bars*

*the Orange Iguanas get their tube over first, they?re pulling themselves across & bang their gong first*

*the Red Jaguars get across the monkey bars while the Blue Barracudas & Green Monkeys are in the tube & bang their gongs second & third respectively*

*the Red Jaguars & Silver Snakes are both in their tubes & are in a pulling race*

*Silver Snakes get across, because Red Jaguars fall out of their tube, & bang their gong*

Kirk: Wow, that was intense! Going onto the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes! & the Orange Iguanas! & the Green Monkeys! & the Blue Barracudas! Red Jaguars & Purple Parrots fought hard, but just didn?t do good enough, you still get a prize! *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *the camera changes to the four dry teams on the top of the Steps of Knowledge*
As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula. Bur before we get started, pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec?s Temple.

Olmec: One of the most popular stories of all time is Bram Stoker?s Dracula. Published in May of 1897, Dracula was the horror story of Jonathan Harker?s journey in Dracula Castle, after being invited to stay while on his duties as a mail man. Harker soon becomes trapped in the castle, but finds his way out.

Harker: Get away from me!

Dracula: I vant to suck your blood!

Olmec: Eventually, he got help from his devoted fianc?e, the fianc?e?s friend, Dr. Van Helsing, & a group of people. While Dracula sleeps at night in a coffin, all they had to do was drive a stake through his heart. While they succeeded, Dracula already had many victims blood thirsty, & he someone was brought back from the dead. While Dracula is long gone from Transylvania now, when he bit his final victim, one of Dracula?s fangs, stained with the victim?s blood, was imbedded in the victim?s neck, & when he died, the fang made it?s way to the Temple! Your job now is to find the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula & bring it back here!

Kirk: Olmec, where is the Fang?

Olmec: The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula can be found in the Anaconda?s Sanctaury!

Kirk: OK. Teams: you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question about today?s legend. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. Go ahead, stomp on it!

*Orange Iguanas hit the step*

Kirk: OK, Orange Iguanas, since you rang in first, you would be able to answer. If you?re right, you?ll move down to the next level. If you?re wrong or run out of time, I?m going to give the other teams a chance to answer. The first two teams to make it to the bottom level *Kirk runs down there* will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. Olmec, we are now ready for the first question.

Olmec: Who journeyed into Dracula?s Castle? Jonathan Harker, Jamie Harker, or Jonathan Parker?

Green Monkeys: Jonathan Harker!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Green Monkeys move down a step*

Olmec: Dracula was published in what month of 1897: April, May, or June?

Green Monkeys: May!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Green Monkeys move down a step*

Kirk: Green Monkeys, one more correct answer & you move onto the Temple Games.

Olmec: When Dracula bites a victim, do they: Die, become a vampire, or fall in a 100 year sleep?

Green Monkeys: Become a vampire!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Green Monkeys move down to the bottom step*

Kirk: One more team can make it, it?s anybody?s game.

Olmec: Who was the doctor that supposedly put Dracula to rest permanently: Dr. Doom, Dr. Van Helsing, or Dr. Will?

Blue Barracudas: Dr. Doom!

*the audience laughs hysterically*

Olmec: Incorrect!

Orange Iguanas: Dr. Van Helsing!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Olmec: Does Dracula sleep in: A bed, a desk, or a coffin?

Orange Iguanas: A coffin!

Olmec: That is correct!

*Orange Iguanas move down a step*

Kirk: Orange Iguanas, one more correct answer & you move onto the Temple Games!

Olmec: Can you kill a vampire by: shooting it with a sho---

Silver Snakes: Uh? never mind.

Olmec: That is not one of the three choices. The three choices are: shooting it with a shot gun, strangling him or her, or driving a stake through their heart?

Orange Iguanas: Driving a?. stake? Through their heart!

Olmec: That is? CORRECT!

*Orange Iguanas move down by the Green Monkeys*

Kirk: Wow, that was intense! Blue Barracudas & Silver Snakes, you just couldn?t get your buzzers to work. Tough luck, but you won?t be going away empty handed, hear is what you get. *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Green Monkeys & Orange Iguanas are present* These two teams will be going head to head in the Temple Games, to fight to enter Olmec?s Temple, right after this!

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. Now the glory goes to the fastest and the strongest. But before we get started, let?s find out a little about our teams. On the Orange Iguanas, we have Matt, he likes to rollerblade & his favorite snack is ice cream. His partner is Torii, her favorite subject in school is reading, & her favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. Let?s hear it for the Orange Iguanas! But on the Green Monkeys, we have Isaac. He likes to play on his trampoline & he is on the school?s swim team! We also have Joyce, she is a gymnast & she was in the Junior Olympics! Give it up for the Green Monkeys! Now, girls get ready for the first Temple Game, guys get ready for the second. Okay, go get ready for the Temple Games, I?m going to explain what?s gonna happen. Teams are competing in temple games to win: Pendants of Life. *shows two pendants* They?re going to need those pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games. Olmec, tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: It has been said that in order to kill a vampire, you must drive a stake through his heart. Now, you?ll try to kill some vampires! In front of you are 5 coffins on the board, each with a vampire inside. When Kirk says to, put a stake into one of the coffins. If you killed the right vampire, nothing will happen & you will get a point. If you kill the wrong vampire, the real one?s door will open, he will sit up & spit blood (just red dye) at you! The person with the most kills in 60 seconds wins!

Kirk: Oh a vampire killing spree we?ll go, set the clock for 60 seconds! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Torii & Joyce both drive the stake in the first try, both get squirted*

*both stake the same coffin, both get a point*

*they stake different coffins, both get squirted*

*both keep getting squirted, but Joyce gets 1 correct point at the last second*

Kirk: Wow, you guys look like you attacked by the vampires! Green Monkeys got 2 points, Orange Iguanas got 1, Green Monkeys win the ? Pendant of Life! Orange Iguanas, you can catch up in the next Temple Game, Olmec, tell us about it!

Olmec: Jonathan Harker was a devoted mailman, not afraid to deliver mail to any house. Now that Jonathan has been captured by Dracula, you must take over!

You are attached to a cord, attached to a bar. On go, one person will run on the ramp, propelling them & their partner in a circle. You will grab a letter off the board & run on the ramp to keep the speed. When you are close enough, you?ll throw the letter into their bucket. If you get it in their opponent?s bucket, it still counts? for them! At the end of 60 seconds, the person with the most letters wins!

Kirk: We?re gonna be playing a game of mailman! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Matt & Isaac are spinning around*

*both are pretty even, both missing*

*30 seconds left, score is tied 2-2*

*Isaac gets another point soon after & time runs out while they keep missing*

Kirk: D?j? vu! Green Monkeys got 1? 2? 3 letters! Orange Iguanas got 1? 2 letters! Green Monkeys had 1 more point, again! Green Monkeys win the ? Pendant of Life! So far, Green Monkeys have 1 Pendant, Orange Iguanas have 0, this is for the Full Pendant, Olmec, tell us about it!

Olmec: In the first Temple Game, you had to try to drive the stake through 5 vampires. Now, you?ll have to kill the big one: Dracula. Pull the heavy coffin across the floor to the marking on the floor. Then, pull the lever to let the stake drop & drive through the coffin & Dracula! The first team to drive the stake through Dracula?s coffin wins!

Kirk: It?s not over until the vampire? dies. On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*both teams are even, but Orange Iguanas are a little ahead*

*Green Monkeys pull ahead & pull the lever, but the stake missed the coffin, because the coffin wasn?t fully on the marking*

*Green Monkeys just stand there, while the Orange Iguanas get the stake through the coffin*

Kirk: Wow, that intense! Green Monkeys pulled the lever too early, giving the Orange Iguanas the full Pendant of Life! It?s a tie, so bring out the tiebreaker!

*the Tiebreaker Podium is brought out*

Kirk: OK, Green over here, Orange over there. Here?s how the tiebreaker works. Olmec will read a question about today?s legend. If you think you know the answer, bang the gong. Then you?ll have three seconds to answer the question. If you get it right, you & your partner will be able to search for the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula. If you get it wrong, the other team has a chance to answer. Olmec, tell us the question.

Olmec: Is the author of Dracula: Bram Stocker, Bram Stoker, or Bam Margera?

Green Monkeys: Bram Stoker!

Olmec: That is? correct!

Kirk: Good job, Green! Orange Iguanas, hey, you guys did your best & that?s what really counts. But you won?t walk away empty handed! *Olmec explains prize*

Kirk: *only Green Monkeys are present* We're gonna see if the Green Monkeys can retrieve the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula, and we're gonna do it right after this!

Kirk: Welcome back. Joyce & Isaac have proven themselves worthy and have earned themselves the right to enter Olmec?s temple. But before we get started, Olmec, can you give the Blue Barracudas any clues about your Temple & how to retrieve the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula?

Olmec: You can start off in the Miner?s Cave. Crawl through the tunnel to make it into the Pit of Anguish. If you can get across, you can head into the Crocodile?s Mouth! Grab the fish from the walls & put them into the crocodile?s mouth & you can go up into the Ranch! Or you can head into the Anaconda?s Sanctuary, where you can grab the Blood-Stained Fang. Untangle the snake & attach it to the wall & go into the Sacred Safari! Find the key in the elephant?s mouth, but beware of the Temple Guards, disguised as elephants! You can go up, or bust through the wall into the Battlefield! Jump on the trampoline to reach the ladder in the Ninja?s Secret Training Chamber & climb into the Ladder of Doom! Put the correct torch into the torch holder & enter the Shriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine of the Siiiiiiilver Monkey! Assemble the statue & go into the Chamber of the Royal Containers. Dump the containers on the floor & find the key to go down, or head into the Observation Tower! Line up the telescope with the markings on the wall to open the door to cross the Stumps of Dejection! Use the 2 planks to get across the four stumps, or jump back into the Pit of Anguish. Race thorough the Hammered Nails & back to the Temple Gates! The choices are yours & yours alone! You won one pendant into the Temple. Who is going first?

Joyce: I am!

Olmec: Very well, Joyce! When Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gate into the temple and make your way towards the Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula. 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 will be Isaac?s turn to try his luck. If you can reach the artifact, all the doors in the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the artifact within three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded. And here?s how! *Olmec explains three prizes*

Kirk: The tough & tenacious Green Monkeys are gonna try to get that Pamphlet! On your marks? get set? GO!!!!!

*Joyce goes up into the Hammered Nails*

*she tries all 3 nails & goes into the Stumps of Dejection with 2:44 left*

*she completes the plank puzzle & goes into the Observation Tower with 2:26 left*

*she aligns the telescope with the wall marking & goes into the Chamber of the Royal Containers with 2:19*

*she tries all 3 containers & tries to go down, but is forced into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey with 1:56 left*

*Joyce assembles the monkey rather slowly & goes into the Ladder of Doom with 1:24 left*

*a Temple Guard catches her & she is distracted for a bit, but assembles the ladder & goes through the Ninja?s Secret Training Chamber into the Battlefield with 1:10 left*

*she starts loading balls but a Temple Guard gets her with 1:07 left*

*Isaac goes into the Temple at about the same speed as Joyce, but goes into the Ranch from the Stumps of Dejection with 0:59 left*

*he saddles the horse & goes up into the Observation Tower with 0:54 left*

*he goes into the Battlefield with 0:34 left*

*he loads the cannon, but the wall doesn?t bust down when he fires it, so he goes up into Shrine of the Silver Monkey (which was already open) with 0:16 left*

*he hesitates, but sees the Sacred Safari door is open, so he goes down there with 0:07 left*

*he puts his hand in both elephants & grabs the key when time runs out*

Kirk: Oh, they were just 1 room away! Oh jeeze, nice try Joyce, come on over here Isaac! Man, you almost had it! Well, we gotta go! Join us next time on a great Legends of the Hidden Temple! Buh-bye!

Fan Summary:
The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula

Name of Artifact: The Blood-Stained Fang of Dracula
Season: 4
Layout: 7
Result: Time Ran Out
Time Remaining: N/A
Team: Green Monkeys
Pendants Won: 1
Location of Artifact: The Anaconda's Sanctuary
Temple Diagram:

Temple Run Summary: Oh, what such dreams were shattered in the last episode of season 4 layout 7. Joyce stayed along the top, & got caught in the Battlefield with 1:07 left. Isaac was as slow as Joyce. He took a detour in the Ranch, figured out the only way to get to the Sacred Safari was down from the Shrine of the Silver Monkey (he learned it the hard way), & time ran out as soon as he got the key in the Sacred Safari. Tough luck, but they didn't deserve it.

Side Notes:

If Joyce & Isaac didn't take the detours in the 2 left most rooms, it could've been a solo run with no Temple Guards appearing.

Wow, that was a very interesting episode all the way through. I like the peculiar temple run configuration especially. :) You may not know it yet, but this topic was the 300th posted on Phantom's Temple. Congratulations!

w00t! Thanks! I was thinking about how so many contestants never used the Shrine passage directly downward, so why not make it a force?

Good episode, but there's a couple of problems in your sentence structure in the legend. I can understand it, but it's kind of confusing.

Also, wouldn't this be a record for smallest artifact?

Yeah, to be honset, this was a hard Legend to write, because there is so much involved with Vlad the Impaler, that you can't cross between those 2, & the story is so long, you have to sum it up really lightly, it's just a hard one to do.
