« on: October 06, 2006, 07:27:02 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 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 one are we going to hear about today?

Olmec: The Legend of the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune

Kirk: The Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune! Well, one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the newspaper. 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 4 large tree stumps. When Kirk gives the signal, the first player will step on the stump, and will be followed by their partner. Once both team members are on they can proceed to the next stump. If any body part touches the moat they must start over from the beginning. Once the team reach 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: Okay, teams are you ready?!

*the teams cheer*

Kirk: Olmec, are you ready?!

Olmec: It?s Party Time!

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

(Event occurs)

Kirk: That was wet and wild, but it?s all over. Going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes! (applause) The Purple Parrots! (applause) The Orange Iguanas! (applause) And the Blue Barracudas! (applause) Red Jaguars and Green Monkeys, had some trouble crossing the moat. They won't be going away empty-handed - we've got a nice gift for them, and here's what it is.

Kirk: As the quest continues, it?s now time for Olmec to tell us about the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune. Pay close attention, because your knowledge of the legend can bring you a step closer to Olmec's Temple.

Olmec: One of the most popular newspaper companies in America is the Chicago Tribune. Founded in 1847, it published their first newspaper on June 10 as ?the know nothing? paper. As the years past, it became very popular. But according to legend, it lost a huge amount of popularity in the 1948 election. The presidential elections showed John Dewey leading against Harry Truman with almost all the votes in.

Editor-in-Chief: ?This is a forgone conclusion. Ready the papers, and make sure that the headline: ?DEWEY BEATS TRUMAN? is on the front page in bold.?

Reporters: ?Yes Sir!?

Olmec: The next day, however, the Tribune were in for quite a shock.

Editor-in-Chief: ?WHAT?S THE MEANING OF THIS!?!? What do you mean Truman beats Dewey!?!??

Reporter A: ?Hey, the chief lied to us: Get Him!!!?

Olmec: This embarrassment cause a huge strike at the Tribune, and all the ?DEWEY BEATS TRUMAN? newspapers were either ?X? out or burned. Except for one newspaper, in which President Truman held on to, until it made it?s way to the temple. You must find the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune, and bring it back here.

Kirk: Wow, okay Olmec, Where is the Newspaper?

Olmec: The Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune can be found in Dracula?s Layer.

Kirk:  Teams, you are standing on the Steps of Knowledge. In a minute, Olmec will ask you a question. 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. Olmec, we are now ready for your first question.

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: These two teams are moving on to the Temple Games. They are the Purple Parrots and the Silver Snakes. Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas 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.

*DVD- Disney?s The Lion King*

Kirk: *only Purple Parrots & Silver Snakes are present* These two teams will battle it out for the chance to enter Olmec?s Temple. Find out what happens 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 Purple Parrots, we have Corey. He practices Kickboxing and wants to be an author. And his partner Megan loves to roller blade and skiing. Let?s hear it for the Purple Parrots!

*Applause*

Kirk: And on the Silver Snakes, we have Derrick. He is into art and juggling. And his partner Karen is into music and wants to be a police officer. Let?s hear it for the Sliver Snakes!

*Applause*

KIRK: Teams, get set for your games while I tell them what?s going to happen. (To audience) In the temple games, teams are competing to win Pendants of Life. (Kirk pulls a pendant out of his pouch and shoves it in front of the camera.) They will need these pendants to protect themselves from the dreaded temple guards as they make their way through the temple. There are three temple games. (To Olmec) Olmec, tell us about temple game number one.

Olmec: Newspaper companies usually hire young children, mostly boys, to deliver papers to their respected neighborhoods. Thus the term ?Paperboy.? Today you will be filling in that roll. When Kirk gives the signal, stretch out until you can place a newspaper into one the 5 houses. Once you do that, spring back into the middle, grab another, and do it again. The first team to place a newspaper in 5 of their houses or the one that is further along in 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: It will be tough with those bungee cords. Lets put 60 seconds on the clock?On Your Marks?Get Set?GO!!

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: It?s over, Corey blazed through with no worries of the bungee cord. So the Purple Parrots gets the .5 Pendant of Life. (Applause) No worries Silver Snakes, the next game is worth a .5 pendant. (To Olmec) Olmec what is the next game?

Olmec: In 1948, people voted for either John Dewey or Harry Truman for President. Before you is a podium box with both of the candidates. When Kirk Gives the signal, vote for either Dewey or Truman. If it?s a good vote, nothing happens, but if it is a bad vote, water will squirt you. The one with the most good votes in the end pf 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: Let the election begin, put 60 seconds on the clock please?Ready?Set?pick your candidate.

(Event occurs)

Kirk: Times up! The score has been tallied. Karen has 2 good votes, but Megan has 5 good votes, so the Purple Parrots gets the .5 pendant. (Applause)  Purple Parrots has a full pendant while the Silver Snakes has none, but the final games is worth a full pendant, and Olmec will tell us about it.

Olmec: When the Tribune found out that Truman beat Dewey, they immediately got rid of the ?DEWEY BEAT TRUMAN? papers. You guys will help the Tribune out. When Kirk gives the signal, one player will grab a newspaper and swing to their partner when the partner has the newspaper, they swing back and toss it into the fiery bin. Then, they will do it again. The team with the most newspapers in their bin in 60 seconds wins.

Kirk: Silver Snakes, if you want to prevent the Purple Parrots from going to the Temple, you must win this event. Lets put 60 seconds on the clock?Ready?Set?GO!!

(Event Occurs)

Kirk: Okay, that?s it! Bring the bin here and we?ll count the up. (Bins are brought to Kirk) For the Silver Snakes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. And for the Purple Parrots: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. It is a tie, both teams get the full Pendant of Life. (Applause) Final Score: Purple Parrots 2 pendants, Silver Snakes 1 pendant. The Purple Parrots are going to the Temple!! (Applause) Silver Snakes, great try just not enough though. We have a great gift for you, here it is.

*PS2 Game- Kingdom Hearts 2*

Kirk: *only Purple Parrots are present* Lets see if the Purple Parrots can get through Olmec's Temple, and retrieve the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune right after this.

Kirk: Welcome back to Legends. Corey and Megan of the Purple Parrots have proven themselves worthy, and now have earned the right to enter Olmec?s Temple. But before they get started, Olmec is going to give them information to help them retrieve the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune.

Olmec: You could start by running up the stairs to the Room of the Bronzed Gongs. Hit all 3 gongs and pass into the Walk of Fate. Walk on the beam across the pit to enter the Bee Hive. Pull the correct bee from it's hive to head down into the Harp Room. Pluck the correct harp string to enter the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Place yourself in the correct armor and open the door to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Assemble the statue and you may be headed for the Sliver Bell Sanctuary. Ring the correct bell and you?ll gain access to the Pharaoh?s Secret Passage. Slide down the tunnel to the Cargo Hold where you could smash into Dracula's Layer, where you can grab the Newspaper. But beware the Temple Guard that may be in the coffin! Spin the dial to turn night into day, and you?ll enter the Cyclops? Den. Place the correct jewel in the statue?s eye and pass into the Throne Room. Sit on the Throne of the Pretender to open the doors. Then race through the Pit, climb through the Ledges, race down the stairs and back through the temple gate. The choices are yours and yours alone! You won two pendants in the temple games. Who?s going first?

Megan: I AM!!

Olmec: Very well, Megan. When Kirk gives the signal, you?ll race through the gates into the temple and make your way towards the Newspaper. 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 Corey?s turn to enter and try his luck. If you can reach the Newspaper, all the doors of the temple will instantly unlock, and the temple guards will vanish. Return through the gates with the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune in three minutes, and you will both be handsomely rewarded?and here?s how!

*Going into the Temple= an Ipod*
*Reaching the Newspaper within 3 minutes= X-Box 360 Package*
*Making it out of the temple with the Newspaper within 3 minutes= a Trip to London*

Kirk: Is London calling for them? I sure hope so. Lets get the mouth pieces in, and put 3 minutes on the clock. (To Olmec) Olmec, lower your gate please.

*Olmec hums and lowers the Gate*

Kirk: On Your Marks?Get Set?GO!!

Pendants won: 2
Location of Artifact: Dracula?s Layer

(Megan enter the Room of the Bronzed Gongs, and instantly loss her pendant to a temple guard. It didn?t phase her though, as she pushed the gongs and entered the Walk of fate with 2:49 left.)

(She jumps down into the pit and enters the Throne Room with 2:30 left.)

(She sits down and then enters the Cyclops? Den with 2:20 left.)

(She tried all three eye gems, however, it led her up to the Room of the Ancient Warriors.)

Kirk: Go Corey Go!

(Cory dashed into the temple following Megan?s path and made it into the Shrine with 1:42 to go.)

(He quickly assembled the monkey, headed down into Dracula?s Layer, and grabbed the Newspaper with 1:12 left)

(The rest was a cake walk for Corey as he pass through the Den, the Throne Room, the Pit, and the Ledges. He made it out of the Temple with 0:41 seconds to spare, and hugged his teammate.)

Kirk: YES!! THEY DID IT!! They got through the Temple, and retrieved the Embarrassing Newspaper of the Chicago Tribune. They got it all: the Ipod, the X-box 360 package, and the London vacation. Congratulations, Purple Parrots!! I hope you had a great time, I Know I did, see you next for another great Legend of the Hidden Temple. See ya!

Question. Why would the room of the artifact need the jazz about a temple guard?
