The Dark Forest / Lifetime Aspirations
« on: July 15, 2007, 08:43:57 PM »
Gee I sound like the Sims 2 now don't I?

Well, all this talk of schooling and what not got me thinking. Most of us here still have a long road ahead of us and most likely have several goals we'd like to live up to.

So what would you say you are aiming to do with your life?

I myself have been tossing this up since about 5th grade. For a while I thought I wanted to be a lawyer, but then I realized that I just liked the idea of speaking and being the center of attention. I've considered acting on and off, but I doubt I'd make it in LA, nor do I want to leave my town.

So as of right now, I'm thinking of Business Administration. I guess I got a thing for having the title of Admin huh?  :lol:

Seriously though, I'm planning on going to college for my MBA, beyond that though, I have no idea where I want to go, occupation wise. I figure, once I have that piece of paper with my name on it, I'll have a pretty good idea of where I want it to take me.

Beyond the working world, I also hope to get a few books published, meet a few people, travle and what not.

What about you guys?

The Dark Forest / To submit or not to submit
« on: June 04, 2007, 01:48:13 PM »
That is the question, and I've been thinking about it for the last few weeks.

I recently made a video that has clips of Legends synced up with music. I want to submit it to YouTube but I don't want to run the risk of lawsuit. I've gotten mixed advice as to if I should upload it or not. Some people claim that, at the worst, I'd get deleted, a few have told me I may get threatened with legal action, which is something I'm not about to jump into.

So what do you guys think?

Here's an interesting topic that came up on another forum. If you had the freedom and resources to make your own movie, what sort of movie would you make?

No bonds, no limits, no rules.

What sort of movie would you make?

The Treasure Room / Legends of the local WalMart
« on: May 06, 2007, 06:25:01 AM »
I'm just writing this out of the humor of my dream, I don't intened to turn this into a mini series, just a bit of humor, enjoy.

DISCLAIMER: None of events in this story reflect my true opinions. This is purely fiction.

Legends of the local Wal-Mart
(The undercooked steak of Manny the border hopper)


Introduction:
The camera pans in through an automatic door, it then goes through another and enters WalMart, where it walks over behind the check out lines, pass the optometry center, and around its wall revealing Olmec?s new placement.

?Legends, of the local WalMart!?

A few die hard shoppers yell ?Woo!?

?With you guide, Kirk Fogg, and here he is now!?

Kirk appears riding on the conveyer belt in one of the check out lines.

?Thank you, thank you everyone, welcome to Legends of the hidden WalMart, the isles are filled with low priced quality goods that are protected by mediocre security, Olmec knows the Legend behind each of the treasures in this store, which one are we going to hear about today??

?The Legend of the undercooked steak of Manny the border hopper!?

?Wow, the undercooked steak of Manny the border hopper, well one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the steak, will it be, The Red Jaguars, The Blue Barracudas, The Green Monkeys, The Orange Iguanas, The Purple Parrots, or The Silver Snakes??

Teams can be seen standing behind the check out lines

?They?re going to have to pass some pretty tough physical and mental test, and in the end, only one team will make it to the Wal-Mart temple, but first they have to clear the check out, and Olmec is going to tell us how to do it today.?

?Before you stand what are obviously check out booths, when Kirk gives the signal, you will jump upon one of the conveyer belts, they will start running in your direction, making it hard for you to cross, if I feel like a cheap laugh, I might just invoke my godly power upon the belts and speed it up causing you to fall on your ass. It all depends on how I?m feeling today, but if you some how do make it to the other side, run over and hit the gong.?

Kirk smashes his face into the red gong.

?The first four teams to make it across the check out line will go on to the next round.?

Kirk walks back, looking a little dazed from his head/gong collision.

?O-tay, teamses, ??.ready??

Kids shout un-amused ?yeah?s?.

Kirk shakes his head and gets back to normal.

?AH! Olmec, are you ready??

?Bitch, I was born ready!?

?Ok teams, on your mark, get set, go!?

Each team member jumps upon the conveyer belts that start running. They run across them slowly and it creates the illusion as if they were on a treadmill or something of that nature. It looks incredibly easy, but the kids seem to be having a very hard time with it. At one point, the Silver snake gets desperate and dives for the end of the belt, but he just falls on his chest onto the belt and is deposited back behind the register, Olmec finds this very amusing. Eventually the Red Jaguars make it across and hit the gong, they are wondering if they changed the buttons of the gongs to the color of the team, but then they realize that it is just Kirk?s blood on the pedestal. Soon the Green Monkeys make it across, then the Purple Parrots, and at long last, the Silver Snakes bring it on home.

?That?s it! We?ve got our four teams, stop the conveyer belts!?

Shoppers who have been waiting to check out this entire time groan at that sound of that.

?We?ve got our four teams, it?s The Silver Snakes, and The Purple Parrots, The Green Monkeys, and The Red Jaguars. Wow, Orange Iguanas, Blue Barracudas, I swear to god, you all must be freaking retarded, but we?ve got a great gift for kids just like you, and here?s what it is!?

?A free copy of Halo 3! 1 was terrible, and 2 sucked ass, and yet people still play it, so they had enough income to produce a 3rd one, enjoy, retards!?

The Steps of Knowledge / Slow down the spam
« on: April 18, 2007, 04:54:12 PM »
All right guys, the spam is getting a little out of hand. Now I want you all to have fun, but it is very hard to moderate when you guys are making the Main Spam topic several pages long in a matter of days. We were considering locking it, but I want you all to at least have a chance.

Here's the deal, please slow down on your posting in the main spam topic, if we can get back to how we were before this mass posting began, everything should work out.

I'm going to see how it works out and make my next action based on it.

The Treasure Room / The Return to the hidden temples
« on: March 12, 2007, 06:47:58 PM »
Well I did it. Ancient Warrior and Ronin inspired me to go back to my Legends fanfiction. This is part one of my story, give me your input. If you like it, I'll write more. If you don't, I'll probably write more anyway and just give up halfway through. All and all, I had fun writing chapter 1 and I am excited about finishing this up.

Return to the hidden temples

Part 1: Agility
Chapter 1: The sighs of Sighs

Much of life has been devoted to archeology and mapping out the secrets of the ancient Mayan civilization?at least, that?s how it was. But as time passed on, I discovered a tribe by the same name of Mayan but of a completely different culture. They built large temples to honor their gods, each room with a different purpose, trap, and monster. As time went on, my research showed that this group had died out over the years, but its decedents had grown to be mastermind thieves. They?d go on journeys across the world, stealing objects of great value. They would return these objects to certain rooms of their temple and add the artifact?s story to their legacy. These stories became known as ?The Legends of the hidden temple?.

In 1993, an archeologist by the name of Kirk Fogg discovered this ancient civilization?s last earthly god, who took the name of Olmec. It is assumed that this god?s name is where the confusion of the tribes name came from and why they were designated as such. Olmec bestowed up on Kirk the knowledge of his race and the stories of the many artifacts that had entered the temple. Being the archeologist that he was, the artifacts meant a great deal to Kirk and he wished to take a few of them with him. He humbly asked for Olmec?s permission to remove some of the artifacts from the temple. Olmec agreed, but only on the terms that those without sin (children) where the ones to enter his temple. As such, they must first be tested on agility, knowledge, and strength, only then would they be allowed clearance into the temple. Depending on how much they exhibited the 3 qualities, pendants were issued as such. The remnants of the civilization that dwelled in the temple were given the mission to remove those that did not have proper clearance (sometimes, by eating them). For the three years, this ritual would continue, little by little, Kirk would receive few of the many artifacts of the temple, for many children, the temple proved to be too fierce a foe.

I was one of them. I was one of the lucky ones. I was one who won.

After the last artifact was attempted, Olmec decided that because a valiant attempt had been made on each artifact, that temple would be closed off to outsiders and would become sacred once again. Thirteen years past, Kirk once again ventured toward the temple. A very peculiar thing had begun to transpire. All of the artifacts that he had collected from the temple had been robed from the many institutions they were placed in. When he reached the temple, he met with a terrible site. Olmec, standing high and mighty, the great Olmec, keeper of the temple stood dead?if he could be called that, for he was an eternal spirit, but his earthly life force had been cut off. Kirk had kept this between himself an Olmec, but the truth behind Olmec?s earthly existence was three powerful orbs: The orb of agility, knowledge, and strength. Kirk had discovered that the civilization had returned, this time, in greater numbers. They were using Olmec?s sacred orbs, and dark arts as well to create awful magic, and steal back their many artifacts from historians and scientists.

Although Kirk felt that the artifacts did truly belong to them, he would not allow them to proses Olmec?s awesome magic, as such, he enlisted in the help of one mighty youth, his greatest student, and yours truly, the man clad in silver.

Our story begins one day as we were walking through a vast jungle. The journey had been a long troublesome one; with nothing to look forward too but the next cheese and crackers break. Kirk and I talked of a great many things along our journey, but the main topic was usually what my mission would be. Kirk had managed to gain 4 and half pendants that he had kept in his possession up until this point. These still acted as clearances through the temple, however, these would only work to keep the temple guards at bay, there was another defense mechanism I would need to fend off the darker spirits of the temple, and the evil mages who were controlling Olmec?s magic. Kirk handed me a long machete. Kirk explained that the three orbs had been hidden in three of the many temples. We would first be reclaiming the orb of agility.

Soon we approached a large cave that had several ledges within it. ?This is the cave of Sighs,? Kirk explained. ?The only secure entrance into the temple left in tact.? I was curious about the name of the cave. ?Why is it called the cave of Sighs?? I asked. Kirk smiled and said, ?Because the vibration of one sigh could cause the entire cave to collapse upon itself.? He said emotionlessly. ?What?!? I shouted, ?I could be killed if I barely cough!? ?Oh don?t worry.? Kirk said ?Save your adrenalin when you are fighting off the demons of the temple, you?ll fight better if you save it until then.? I shuddered at the thought. With no other choice, I walked passed the old torches whose golden flame had died long ago.

Before approaching the entrance to Sighs, I turned around and saw Kirk waving at me smiling. I gave him a look of question and asked, ?Aren?t you coming with me?? He shrugged and said. ?If there are more of two of us in Sighs at one time, it will collapse more easily, and as I said, the other entrance is closed off at this moment so this is our only choice.? I was perturbed but I knew that this was all for the greater good. I sighed, and then caught myself knowing that I couldn?t do that again once I entered the cave. I gave Kirk one last look and said quietly ?Wish me luck!? with that he nodded and I was off, one pendant in tow, and a machete on my belt.

I slowly but surely climbed my way through the many dark ledges of Sighs. I was convinced that there had to be something living in here, but then I realized that if there was, it would have collapsed under the vibrations of their growls or screeches, so I was most likely okay for that factor of danger. Of course, there was still the impending danger of the cave collapsing on me. I continued to make my way through the dark cavern; Kirk told me that the secret entrance into the temple would be marked. The problem was, I couldn?t see anything in front of my face, for all I knew, I was going in circles.

Suddenly, my feet picked up a good amount of dirt that caused a dust cloud. The dust flew up my nostrils and into my respiratory system, and then, I did the unthinkable, I sneezed, loudly. There was a huge rumbling, Kirk was right. I didn?t think the cave was that unstable, but now I was certain. Suddenly, the ceiling above me began to crumble. Little chunks of rock began to fall on my head, then larger rocks. As time went on, it got rougher. I knew I didn?t have much time left, I ran as fast as I could in no particular direction at all, praying Olmec would lead me down the right path.

With my hands flailing in every direction, they suddenly touched upon something that was not that of a rocky wall; it was that of an ancient button. I immediately realized that this was an ancient actuator. I pressed it, nothing happened. I feared it was all over, Kirk had warned me that some doors may be locked, but I thought my path was cleared. There was no way at this point I could make it up to the upper entrance to the temple, not this far into the game. I had to get through

I jammed my entire body into the wall, hitting the ancient button with all my might. This didn?t do much for the cave?s stability, but it did open the door. I tumbled through just as a large boulder crashed down and closed off the cave of Sighs from the temple forever. I had passed the cave of Sighs, but now a greater danger stood in my way.
A pit of quick sand stood at the bottom of whatever this ancient structure had once been. It separated the entrance from the main temple, and the only way across it was an old bridge. And it looked troublesome.

To be continued.

All coments welcome.

The Steps of Knowledge / Temple News 3/9/07 *The 3rd contest*
« on: March 09, 2007, 04:50:32 PM »
As you know, I am working on lowering the ranks and creating a few new ranks to make it easier for you all to advance. As such, I thought it might be fun to hold a contest for a new temple rank. Since this contest is a bit simpler than the last 2 we had, I'm thinking about only keeping it open for the weekend or so, but depenind on how popular it gets I may keep it open a bit longer. Give me your input on this and I'll start the contest up tomorrow morning.

The Dark Forest / My old friend Kyle and his forum
« on: February 23, 2007, 06:23:24 PM »
Ok everyone, I'm going to tell a bit of a story here. If you don't care about my past adventures of ,2005,and 2006, just skip this lengthy paragraph to the bottom where I cut to the chase. Any who. Back when I was new to the internet I got into a few scuffles on the net trying to find my own place. Then I joined the forum on New Grounds. I met a member there named Kyle (he?s had a myriad of online names). He is listed as our 4th member on the member list. He attempted to start his own forum back in 2005, but it never really got off the ground. He helped me out a lot when I started my own forum and I promised that one day when he started his forum back up again, I would help him out as well.

So what it comes down to is that his forum is really itchy for members and I would appreciate it very much if some of you joined. He is a bit immature and it will probably take some of you a while to warm up to him so I don?t blame you if you don?t join. Hell, I don?t blame if you if you get mad at me for posting this, but the thing is, I owe it to him.

If anyone is interested in helping us out, the link to his forum is: http://cryptforums.tk/

Thanks to anyone who actually read this. I am sorry for this outburst. As an admin I try and deviate from such.

Ok, it's been a while since any news or updates, but I figure it high time. Thank you all for baring with us during Forumer's server 6 technical difficulties, but we are now back up and running. Those of you loyal to this forum know that I have lots of ideas in store. I've got an idea for our 3rd contest and we've been talking about several new additions as well as an introduction forum. So to sum things up I plan to do some new things with this board in the coming future.

Although I think it's obvious that this is just a spam bot, this thread actually had some useful information instead of your choice of porn or gay porn, so I've elected to keep it. All opposed, PM me.

EDIT: Come to think of it, would someone who is a tad more computer litterate than me tell me if this information is accurate or just a bunch of bull shit?

The Dark Forest / Phantom's views on the X files
« on: December 31, 2006, 08:49:11 PM »
Well, as I had planed, I watched the last episode of the X files on Dec 31 2006. I've been spending the last year watching the entire series. I first played the Play Station videogame back in about 1999, this year, after seeing it on TV multiple times, I considered downloading an episode I liked, I was very frustrated to find the only ones available were in Italian my mom finally came to me and said: "Bryan, you have money, why don't you just collect the DVDs?" Best advice my mother ever gave me. I bought Season 1 in March and continued collecting up till about late July, at that point I had seasons 1-9 the movie and both videogames. I watched every episode off and on because I planed to watch the final episode as an end of the year sort of thing.

It was one of the best series I've ever seen. Intriguing plot, characters you fall in love with, mysteries that keep you awake at night, the list goes on.

If you want a great series to get into, defiantly check out the X files, hell, anything from Fox is good: Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, That 70's show.

The X files is by far one of my favorite shows, and will always hold a special place in my heart.......next to Legends of course

The Heart Room / Temple Guard Abuse
« on: December 27, 2006, 04:05:24 PM »
Here is something I've been wondering about for a while, but have never addressed. I remember an episode in which a temple guard emerged and scared the runner. She was so scared that she smaked the temple guard, to Kirk's astonishment: "OOOH! SHE HIT THE TEMPLE GUARD!"

Does anyone know what episode this is?
