I wanna do the last five because they're some of my favorites.

THE DRIED EAR OF CORN OF SOJOURNER TRUTH:
-Encountered Guards: Chamber of the Sacred Markers, Room of the Ancient Warriors, Dark Forest

THE JEWELED SCABBARD OF SFORZA:
-Encountered Guards: Crypt, Chamber of the Sacred Markers
-Unencountered Guards:  Had to be the Ledges.  This episode and the War Fan episode is making me revise some of my thoughts.  They only put guards in both entrance rooms when one has to be avoidable and their path has few choices.

THE GOOD-LUCK WATCH OF EMPRESS EUGENIE:
-Encountered Guards: King's Storeroom, Shrine of the Silver Monkey
-Unencountered Guards: They had access to no other rooms than the Ledges, though it could have been the Room of the Ancient Warriors since she went straight for the second armor, which happened to be right.  Although I doubt even with 2 pendants they'd put all three guards in consecutive rooms.  They only did that with once when the team had 1 1/2 pendants and they made it very obvious where the other half was.

THE RUBY EARRING OF BIN-ZIBAB:
-Encountered Guards: Crypt, Tomb of the Headless Kings
-Unencountered Guards: From the Pit of the Pendulum, the doors to the Tomb of the Headless Kings and the King's Storeroom opens, so I'm saying either the King's Storeroom or the Chamber of the Sacred Markers.

THE JEWEL-ENCRUSTED EGG OF CATHERINE THE GREAT:
-Encountered Guards: Crypt, Tomb of the Headless Kings
-Unencountered Guards: Only could be the Quicksand Bog or the Room of the Secret Password.  I'll look back and see if I can see a pile-up of blocks in the Bog.

I saw nothing so it had to be the Room of the Secret Password for the Jewel-Encrusted Egg.

I agree with your locations for the last five episodes. Those last four episodes in particular are great and are some of my personal favorite season 3 runs.

The last temple guard in the Jewel-Scabbard of Sforza had to be in the Ledges. My guess was that since it was the last day of production, the producers wanted to try to make these gimmicky layouts. Had the team started in the Ledges, they probably would've been forced up into the Crypt.

The other guard in the Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugenie must've been in the Ledges, creating a direct path guard of some sorts.

I would think the Ruby Earring guard would've been in the King's Storeroom since usually there is a temple guard when two rooms open from the Pit.

I am going to go back and rewatch the season 1 episodes to try and complete the list more.

For the Scabbard run, I'm thinking the Jester's Court may have opened after Lacey completed the objective in the Tomb of the Headless Kings. I still think it would be evil of the production crew to put a temple guard in both the upper and lower starting rooms, no matter what day of production it was. I don't think they would do such a thing. If the Jester's Court DID open, then that final temple guard location would be up in the air as the other four rooms had the potential to hold a guard (not including Jester's Court).

Edit: take a look at this video of the run and tell me if you can see whether or not the boxes are stacked in the Quicksand Bog (the 3:20 mark). It's hard to tell. Also, at around 5:47 to 5:48, that white stuff in the Jester's Court as Asher's getting the Scabbard. Is that light from the Tomb of the Headless Kings? If so, then that means the Headless Kings-Jester's Court door opened and this was a possible route that could've been taken. Still, I don't know what that white stuff is. Maybe someone can explain this.



Second edit: well, the video thumbnail IS the 3:20 mark, so tell me if you can see a big stack/wad of boxes.

A few quick notes.

First, PP319, at 5:18 of the video, we can see that the door in the Tomb of the Headless Kings hadn't flung open.

Second, I recently got a new computer, and I still need to get Microsoft Word installed.  My notes were in .doc format so I can't access them until I get it installed.  Once I do have access to my notes, I'll go back and read all entries in this topic and then I'll post a list of what episodes we still need to determine for.


By the way, how do you post Youtube videos?

Oh, I forgot about the door that just flings open. My bad.

As for posting Youtube videos. First, go to Youtube and watch a video on the video page. Then copy the link at the top in the address bar (right click and choose the copy option;you will also see paste, which will come in handy in a second). Finally, paste the link in your comment box. The video box should show up in your post. :)

Thanks

By the way, do you guys think I'm being stupid with the whole temple guard thing in The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley, or do you think that might be what actually happened?

Your welcome.

It's a possibility that a guard was in the middle suit. That was weird seeing the suit turning like that. Idk if a guard was in there or not. If there wasn't, then maybe the production crew got lazy with aligning that suit perfectly. Also, that's not the first time it took the temple guard in the shrine a long time to come out. In The Mussel-Shell Armor of Apanuugpak, Gator was already putting the base on the monkey pedistol when the guard came out.

You know, the suit of armor does look weird in the Mary Shelley run. If you watch when Kate enters the Room of the Ancient Warrior, it is slightly out of alignment. But when she is putting herself into the first armor, the middle starts to straighten out. Also, you can see her kind of flinch when she tries that suit of armor.

Also, it was that suit that opened the shrine door. That makes it even more suspicious.

I know it usually did take a little bit for the guard to come out of the Shrine, but this time, it even seemed unusually long.

And the thing is, the middle suit was straight to begin with, but as she was approaching it, it turned a considerable amount, but then turned back while she was pulling the arms down.

I think that was the longest time it took for a guard to come out of the Shrine door. I might be wrong though.

A little off topic, but when it comes to The Room of the Ancient Warriors, can players pull down on the suit arms without fitting into the suit (pulling the arms down from the outside) or would that lead to a disqualification? Second of all, is it even possible to pull those handles down from the outside? This thought occurred to me yesterday.

I'm thinking it is possible, but they would get disqualified.

Yeah, I'm thinking so too. That would defeat the purpose of a guard being there and it would eliminate the cheapness of this room. You need that cheapness to keep this room interesting.

I am trying to go back to do some of the season one episodes, and its just so hard to figure out where some of the guards are in these runs. My biggest problem is these half-pendant runs as they are no where in sight. I will keep a look out and post any hints of temple guards being around if I see one.
