The Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus
« on: January 07, 2007, 02:09:32 PM »
*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 walking down the steps of the Temple*

Olmec: And here he is now.

Kirk: Thank you everyone. Nice to see you. Nice to see you Olmec. Welcome 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 one are we going to hear about today?

Olmec: The Legend of the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus.

Kirk: Well the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the Dog Leash. 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: Before you lies an ancient rod that has fallen across the moat. When Kirk gives the signal, the first player will hang from the rod by their hands and feet, and shinny across to the other side. Once the first player is across, it will be their partners? turn to do the same. If a player falls into the moat, hey must start over from the beginning. Once the second player is on the other side, they must run over and 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: OH Yeah!

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

(Event occurs)

Kirk: We have our four team. That was a really hard task, but we do have our four teams. Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes! (applause) The Purple Parrots! (applause) The Green Monkeys And the Blue Barracudas! (applause) Red Jaguars and Orange Iguanas really had a tough time getting across. We got some nice prize for them, and here's what it is.

Kirk: As we continue our quest, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus. Guys pay close attention because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to the Temple.

Olmec: In Greek Mythology, Hercules was the strongest man that has ever lived. For twelve years, he had to serve King Eurystheus by performing twelve labors. His final labor was to go to the Underworld and capture the three-headed dog Cerberus, the Guardian of the Underworld. Once there, Hades and Persephone allowed Hercules to take Cerberus as long as he doesn?t harm him. According to legend, Cerberus resented an fought him, but Hercules prevailed and placed a leash on each of his heads. After returning to earth with Cerberus, Hercules won his freedom from the King. Being free, Hercules returned Cerberus back to the Underworld, and the Leash landed here in the Temple. Your goal is to find the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus and return it here.

Kirk: Very interesting?Olmec, where is the Leash?

*Camera shows the Leash, and zooms out to show its location*

Olmec: The Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus can be found in The Bat?s Balcony.

Kirk: Teams, you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question about the legend you just herd. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the ancient marking in front of you. 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 will be one step closer to Olmec?s Temple. (To Olmec) Olmec, we are now ready for your first question.

Olmec: The Strongest man in Greek?

(The Green Monkeys ring in.)

Green Monkeys: Hercules.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Green Monkeys move down to the second step.)

Olmec: How many Labors must Hercules perform in order to be free: 10, 12, or 24?

(The Blue Barracudas ring in.)

Blue Barracudas: 12

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Blue Barracudas move down to the second step.)

Olmec: Who did Hercules serve during his Labors: Zeus, Hara, King Eurystheus?

(The Silver Snakes ring in.)

Silver Snakes: King Eurystheus.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Silver Snakes reaches the second step.)

Olmec: What was Hercules last Labor?

(The Blue Barracudas ring in.)

Blue Barracudas: ?

Olmec: Times up. The three choices?

(The Green Monkeys ring in.)

Green Monkeys: Capture Cerberus.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Green Monkeys move down to the third step.)

Olmec: What kind of animal was Cerberus: a dog, a lion, or a pig?

(The Purple Parrots ring in.)

Purple Parrots: A dog

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Purple Parrots move down to the second step.)

Olmec: Where did Hercules go to capture Cerberus: Mt. Olympus, the Underworld?

(The Purple Parrots ring in.)

Purple Parrots: The Underworld.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Purple Parrots move down to the third step.)

Olmec: Who is the God of the Underworld?

(The Green Monkeys ring in.)

Green Monkeys: Hades.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Green Monkeys move down to the bottom step.)

Kirk: We got our first team for the Temple Games. It?s the Green Monkeys. It?s a close contest, but we need one more team. Next question Olmec.

Olmec: How are Zeus and Hercules related?

(The Purple Parrots ring in.)

Purple Parrots: Father and Son.

Olmec: That is correct.

(The Purple Parrots reaches the bottom step.)

Kirk: These two team are moving on to the Temple Games. They are the Green Monkeys and the Purple Parrots. Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes gave it a great effort, and they are not going home empty handed. We got a prize for both of them, and here it is.

*Nike Shoes*

Kirk: *only the Green Monkeys & Purple Parrots are present* Don?t go away, because these two teams will battle it out for the right 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 get to know our team players. On the Green Monkeys, we have Mel. He is a tennis player who enjoys painting. And his partner Lee plays basketball for her church and loves rock climbing. Let?s hear it for the Green Monkeys!

*Applause*

Kirk: And on the Purple Parrots, we have Bradley. He likes to juggle and wants to be a dentist. And his partner Gina is a swimmer who wants to be in the Olympics. Let?s hear it for the Purple Parrots!

*Applause*

Kirk: Ok teams, go set up for your games, and I?ll tell you what?s going to happen. (To audience) In the temple games, teams are competing to win Pendants of Life. The winning team will need those pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games, and Olmec tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: According to our legend, Hercules had to climb on top of Cerberus back to put the leash on. Before you is a giant net and at the top is Cerberus. When Kirk gives the Signal, grab a leash, climb the net and put the leash on one Cerberus heads. Then climb down, grab another leash, and do it again. The first player to put a leash on Cerberus three heads or the one that is further along after 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: Oh my, that?s a big challenge. Lets put 60 seconds on the clock?On Your Marks?Get Set?GO!!

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: Times up! Lets see Lee was able to leash 1 of Cerberus heads, but Gina was able to Leash all 3 before the clock hit 0:00. So the Purple Parrots get the .5 Pendant of Life. (Applause) The next game is also worth a .5 pendant, so the Green Monkeys can catch up. (To Olmec) Olmec, tell us about Temple Game number 2.

Olmec: Hercules was so strong, he could lift anything. Before you are 10 boxes each one heavier than the next. When Kirk gives the signal, pick up a box and lift it over your head. Then go to the next box and do it again. The first player to lift all 10 boxes over their head, or the one that is further along after 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: How strong are Mel and Bradley? We?re about to find out. Lets put 60 seconds on the clock?On Your Marks?Get Set?GO!!

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: OK times up! Mel and Bradley had trouble with the 9th box. Both of them lifted 8 boxes, so both win the .5 Pendant of Life. (Applause) Green Monkeys has a .5 pendant, but the Purple Parrots has a full Pendant. Our final game is worth a full pendant. (To Olmec) Olmec, tells us about the last Temple Game?

Olmec: Cerberus resented to leave with Hercules, but was defeated and dragged back to earth. Before you is the fallen Cerberus. When Kirk gives the signal, both players must pull Cerberus as hard as they can from the Underworld to Earth. The first team to completely pull Cerberus back the earth side or the that is further after 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: This is for the Temple. Lets put 60 seconds on the clock?On Your Marks?Get Set?GO!!

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: That?s it! Way to go Purple Parrots; they made this look completely easy. So they get the full Pendant which gives them 2 pendants. The Purple Parrots are going to the Temple!!! A great try by the Green Monkeys. They never gave up. We have a great gift for this team and here it is.

*Watches*

Kirk: *only Purple Parrots are present* Now lets see if the Purple Parrots can make it through Olmec's Temple and retrieve the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus right after this.

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. (To Olmec) Olmec, Bradley and Gina have proven themselves worthy, and now have earned the right to enter your Temple. Can you give them any clues that can help them retrieve the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus.

Olmec: You could start by going into the Ledges, and head down into the Pit. Once there you must choose your next path. You could enter the Witches Brew. Pull the black hat from the caldron, and place it on the correct witch to head down into the SCREAM Room. Open the correct box to unleash the scream of a fallen Temple Guard, so you can enter the Swamp. If you escape, you maybe headed into Dracula?s Layer. Spin the dial to turn night into day, but be careful a Temple Guard maybe inside the coffin. If he is, you must give up a pendant. Or you can smash into the Cargo Hold. Ride the elevator up into the Tri-clops Dome. Roll the correct eye to the back of the monsters head to gain access into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue to head into the Alphabet Room. Put the words in alphabetical order and shout out the last word to gain access into the Bat?s Balcony, where you can grab the Dog Leash. Rip the wings of the giant bat and swing your way across the pit. Then past through the Insect Room, race down the stairs and back through the temple gate. The choices are yours and yours alone?Good Luck!


Kirk: Okay, you guys won 2 pendants so here you go. *Kirk gives the pendants to the Purple Parrots* Now, who will be going first?

Bradley: I am.

Kirk: Very well. Bradley, when I say go, you?ll race through the gates into the Temple and make your way to the Bat?s Balcony to grab the Dog Leash. Be careful, the Temple has many lock doors and dead ends. Hidden inside the temple are Temple Guards, that protect three specific rooms. If you enter one of those rooms, a Temple Guard will jump out and capture you. You can trade your pendant for an extra life to go on, but if you?re caught without a pendant, you will be taken out of the temple, and it will be Gina?s turn to enter and try her luck. If you can reach the Dog Leash, all the doors of the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will disappear. You will have 3 minutes to return through the gates with the Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus, and for your efforts, you both will be handsomely rewarded?and here?s how!

*Going into the Temple= a Boom Box*
*Reaching the Dog Leash within 3 minutes= Foosball Table*
*Making it out of the Temple with the Dog Leash within 3 minutes= a trip to Cancun*

Kirk: Cancun awaits them. Bradley, which way are you going, up or down?

Suzy: I?ll go down.

Kirk: Okay, mouth pieces are in and Bradley take your position?Olmec, lower your gate please.

(Olmec moans while Gate is lowered)

Kirk: Lets put 3 minutes on the clock. On your marks...Get set...GO!!

Name of Artifact: The Triple Dog Leash of Cerberus
Result: Ran out of time
Team: Purple Parrots
Pendants won: 2
Location of Artifact: The Bat?s Balcony
Diagram:


(Bradley runs down to the Ledges, and enters the Pit with 2:48 left.)

(He tries to enter the Scream Room, but the door was locked. So he tried his best to climb up which delayed him for 25 seconds. Once up he opened the door to the Witches Brew, and enters with 2:17 to go.)

(Pulling the hat from the cold caldron he placed it on the witch on the left side of him. The witch laughed which opens the door to the Scream Room. He heads down with 2:01 left.)

(He opened the first box and?AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! The Temple Guard scream paralyzed him for 7 seconds, but he was able regain his focus and heads into the Swamp with 1:44 left.)

(Once there, he met his first Temple Guard. He give him the pendant and enters Dracula?s Layer with 1:31 to go)

(He first spin the dial, but as soon as night turned into day, the door to the Shrine wasn?t opened. So he tried to bust through the wall into the Cargo Hold, but the wall wouldn?t budge. Dracula?s Layer was a complete dead end. So he returned to the Swamp with 1: 11 left on the clock.)

(Bradley proved that climbing was he biggest weakness as he struggles up the rope. As soon as he was able to enter the Alphabet Room, 0:10 seconds was left on the clock)

(In the Alphabet Room, the second Temple Guard appeared, taking Bradley out of the Temple. As soon as Gina reached the temple gate, time expired.)

KIRK: Aw time?s up! Gina didn?t get a chance to enter the Temple. Bradley really struggle in the swamp but he did get up there. Aw well, the Purple Parrots still get the Boom Box for just going in. We?ll see you next time for another great Legend of the Hidden Temple! Bye!
