I just noticed a mistake in TRJ's thoughts on The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain. The 2nd guard was found in the Room of the Ancient Warriors, not the Shrine.

You're right, they did encounter the guard in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. Now that this thread is bumped, maybe I should go back and take a look at some of these runs.

For "The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba", I agree that one of the guards had to be in the Crypt, but I truly believe the other unencountered guard was in the Dark Forest. I don't think the producers of the show would be mean and put the guard in Medusa's Lair, a room that opened once the King's Storeroom objective was done. However, if for some reason Shane wanted to enter Medusa's Lair from the Rock Quarry (something no one ever done) and it opened, then it might've been in there. But since that room opened once Shane completed the King's Storeroom, I don't think it would've opened from the Rock Quarry. Therefore, a guard in the Dark Forest is the best possibility. Of course, this will most likely be forever unknown and the one thing that makes it unknown is that the other half-pendant was on the Throne Room actuator in the RQ. That would make a triple guard encounter possible if they chose the Crypt first. In fact, now that I think about it, there could've been a guard in the Dark Forest AND Medusa's Lair instead of the Crypt. Wow, this is tough to decide on. :?

I'll still say the two unencountered guards were in the Crypt and Dark Forest.

I personally think it was in Medusa's Lair. Remember the Man in the Iron Mask temple run where Danielle encountered a dead end by going up to that room? Furthermore, she ran into a temple guard in the Swamp too. Since that artifact was also in the Observatory, it's my best guess that the temple guard placement was the same as the Tall Turban temple run. With the other guard probably being in the Crypt there too. If Danielle hadn't gone into Medusa's Lair, it could have been a solo victory just like what Shane accomplished. It's not really uncommon have temple runs to have a similar layout and/or temple guard placement. So I'm pretty sure one of the other temple guards was in Medusa's Lair, not the Dark Forest.

Its possible that the temple guard was in the Dark Forest. Shane does blaze through the Dark Forest and does not take a moment to slow down at all, so we don't know if there was Temple Spirit in a tree. But I think Medusa's Lair is a high possibility also. It would be similar to "the Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask" where the producers would bank on the team to go up and create a double whammy with a deadend and temple guard. I think one definitely had to be in the Crypt though because of the half-pendant location. It would also be a direct path guard trap in a sense too.

In the Turban run, did the Lair-Laser door open? Shane tried going up there, but he stopped and went to the Swamp instead. I should re-check.

Yes, I did say Throne Room earlier when it was the Laser Light Room. My bad.

You know, you got a point about the Medusa's Lair door. I just rewatched the Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask again and you can clearly tell the Medusa's Lair door opened. It was hard to tell if it opened in the Ahmed Baba run though because of the lighting in the room. I am going to rewatch the Jeweled-Necklace of Montezuma again, which also featured a double whammy deadend in Medusa's Lair.

I think I found something!

I just went  back and watched John Henry's Lost Hammer.  It's hard to tell, but it definitely looks to me like we can see the temple guard in the Cave of Sighs during the credits roll.

I really don't think it is.



That doesn't look much like a guard to me.

Where are you getting higher quality screencaps?

And actually, that looks more like it to me.  Plus, if there wasn't a guard, there shouldn't be anything back there.

Another awesome find!

The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl.  The last temple guard was definitely in the Cave of Sighs.  This happens after they showcase the grand prize and the camera goes back to the temple.



I don't even care about the bad quality this time.  That's pretty freakin' obvious.

Yeah, a really obese guard with some sort of glow-in-the-dark trapezoid shape on his body, maybe. Whatever...
