The Heart Room / Re: Legends is coming back!
« Last post by PurpleParrot319 on December 19, 2021, 09:25:44 PM »
Last episode spoiler below for tonight's temple run...

Yet another difficult temple run. The item was in the Crypt of the Heartless, the bottom room next to the Crystal Senote. This layout was set up in a way that the Green Monkeys had to enter EVERY room except one (the Room of the Lost Treasure, the center room below the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, would've been that room). That's ten rooms! That's crazy. The front runner was fast and got taken out of the temple at the Steamy Hollows. He gave his partner plenty of time to win, but not only was she pretty slow, but the Queen's Armory struck again. I think it killed at least 40 seconds. Pieces of armor kept falling off and because the second runner wasn't that tall, she struggled to get the headdress on at the end before time ran out.

If this show gets another season, I hope that the Queen's Armory goes away. That room is such a time killer and it's apparent that it's a pain to get each armor item onto the queen. The room doesn't even look that fun to go through. As a viewer, that looks like a tedious objective to complete. I say replace it with something else; something that isn't boring to watch and doesn't waste so much time.

It's sad that this season's finale ended in a loss and sadly, given the low viewership these episodes have gotten, I'm not that optimistic that this version will get another season. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Near day late edit: I completely forgot that there was a door from the Queen's Armory that leads to the Pit of Despair, so there was a chance the second runner could've avoided the Dark Forest if given the chance. That means this could've been another 9 room run, but that still would've been a lot.

The Broken Sword of Heaven of Susanoo

Purple Parrots (Augie and Myke): 57 points
10 for finishing the moat third
8 for the fourth question
5 for the seventh question
4 for the eighth question
20 for the second game
10 for tiebreaker win
Ran out of time

Silver Snakes (Steven and Rocco): 50 points

Blue Barracudas (Megan and Rebecca): 63 points
20 for finishing the moat second
10 for the second question

It looks like the Purple Parrots were undeserving of a temple run in this episode.

Is it me or are these temple layouts insanely difficult? Even with the added minute to the clock, teams are still struggling to even reach the item. Some of the rooms being big time wasters like the Queen's Armory doesn't help.
Here are the temple layouts.

Temple Layout XVI (All of Season 4)
A. The Mayan Mask Room: In this room, there are three Mayan masks with an actuator concealed underneath each one. Players need to lift each mask and hit the actuator underneath if it will open the straight or downward door.
B. The Pit of the Pendulum: The objective remains the same, but the column at the front is taller and thinner.
C. The King's Storeroom: Now there's a key inside each clay pot (red, orange and green) and all three need to be inserted into their keyholes.
D. The Chamber of Animal Glyphs: Similar to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers, but players need to match the animal glyphs on the left with their names in Mayan language.
E. The Room of the Ancient Warriors: Unlike that seen in the third season, there are now three statues of Mayan warriors, each with a missing feature that players need to find and place on it. Each warrior statue could be missing a headdress, spear or shield.
F. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey: You obviously can never have Legends without this room.
G. The Steamy Hollows: Here’s the first room where the answer depends on which team goes to the temple. Players need to release a steam of their team's color by uncovering one of the six vents.
H. The Pharaoh's Secret Passage: Now the slide is even more slippery.
I. The Quicksand Bog: The walls are now decorated with fossils and rocks.
J. The Dark Forest: There are now blacklights and spooky decorations.
K. The Jester's Court: Not only are there blacklights, but there’s also a colored light pattern that projects when the objective is completed.
L. The Monkey's Fruit Trove: This room has five monkey statues with five mixed up fruits (banana, coconut, mango, orange, papaya). Players need to match the fruits with the monkey statues.
M. The Crystal Cenote: Just like the Cave of Sighs and Ledges, but it's colorful and decorated with crystals.
As the reboot is completely different from the original, I thought I could write fanfics of what it would have been like had Legends continued on Nickelodeon.

I took the quiz, and don't want to reveal my result.

This quiz needs to be re-done so that there are "neutral" answers to some of the questions.

I don't care about what geographical region my legend comes from. All I care about is that I'd be on the show.

Also, how the fuck am I supposed to know the middle initial of someone I've never met?

Sorry Alec, but I grade this quiz an F.
