Episode 11: The Tortoiseshell Comb of Eleanor of Aquitaine

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Tortoiseshell Comb of Eleanor of Aquitaine,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Tortoiseshell Comb of Eleanor of Aquitaine,” Kirk responds. “So, the legend is set, and one of these teams will have a chance to retrieve the Comb—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some of the toughest physical and mental tests they’ve ever taken, but in the end, only one team will get to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first they have to cross the Moat, and Olmec, why don’t you tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across. Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way. If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, I’m ready,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“And Mr. Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“OOOHH yeah,” Olmec replies.
“All right, then,” Kirk says. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

The six team members jump into the Moat and grab the ropes. The Silver Snakes’ boy is first back on the dock, with the Green Monkeys’ boy and Orange Iguanas’ girl close behind. The Red Jaguars’ boy and Blue Barracudas’ girl climb out, and all five players successfully swing across and throw the ropes to their partners. “Everybody’s doin’ great so far,” Kirk narrates. “That could all change really quickly, though!” The Purple Parrots’ girl makes it across and throws the rope to her partner as the other team’s second players begin their swing across. The Red Jaguars’ girl touches the water on her swing across; however, the other four players successfully swing across and hit their gongs in this order: Green Monkeys, Silver Snakes, Blue Barracudas and Orange Iguanas.

“That’s it!” Kirk shouts as he rushes over to stand beside the Silver Snakes. “That was fast! The Silver Snakes had no problems at all, as did our other teams—goin’ on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys, and the Blue Barracudas! The Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots just missed it by an eyelash, but they’re not goin’ home empty-head—handed. We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Gamestop.

Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Rudder from the HMS Endurance,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Rudder from the HMS Endurance,” Kirk says. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Rudder—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will earn the right to enter the Temple. But first, they’ll have to cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they have to do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across. Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way. If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, let’s get swingin’,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Bring it on, Fogg,” Olmec replies.
“Oh, I will,” Kirk laughs. “Teams ready, get set, GO!”

All six teams jump in the moat and grab the rope. The Orange Iguanas’ boy is first back, followed by the Silver Snakes’ boy, the Green Monkeys’ boy and the Blue Barracudas’ girl. The Red Jaguars’ girl climbs out about a second later, and the Purple Parrots’ girl about two seconds after her. The Blue Barracudas’ girl, Silver Snakes’ boy and Green Monkeys’ boy all make it across, but the Red Jaguars’ girl touches the water and has to go back. “It’s tough to keep from falling in,” narrates Kirk. The Purple Parrots’ girl and Orange Iguanas’ boy each swing across and throw the rope to their partner. The Silver Snakes’ girl touches the water on her first swing, and the spotters tell her to go back. Meanwhile, the Blue Barracudas and Green Monkeys get their second player across, and both hit their gong at the same time. About four seconds later, the Purple Parrots’ boy successfully swings across as well, and he hits his team’s gong. “Three teams have made it—only one spot left!” Kirk narrates. The Orange Iguanas’ girl touches the water on her first swing, but the Red Jaguars’ girl makes it across and throws the rope to her partner, only to have him fail to catch the rope. The Silver Snakes’ girl, however, finally makes it across, and she runs over to hit the gong.

“That’s it! We’ve got four teams!” Kirk exclaims as he runs over to stand beside the Silver Snakes. “They’re soaking wet, but they made it, and the Silver Snakes are going on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Purple Parrots,” Kirk pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys, and the Blue Barracudas! The Red Jaguars and the Orange Iguanas didn’t quite make it, but we’ve got a nice gift for ‘em anyway!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from FYE.

“The legend of the Burnt French Flag of Louis the Thirteenth,” Olmec replies.

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.

“All right, let’s get started,” Kirk says. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Let’s rock the Moat,” Olmec replies.
“Okay,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

All six teams jump into the Moat and grab the rope. The Blue Barracudas’ girl makes it back first, followed closely by the Orange Iguanas’ boy and the Purple Parrots’ boy. The Red Jaguars’ girl and the Green Monkeys’ boy climb back onto land about two seconds later, with the Silver Snakes’ girl about a second behind them. “This is close, but they’ve still gotta swing across!” Kirk narrates. All the teams’ first players successfully swing across except the Orange Iguanas’ boy and the Silver Snakes’ girl, both of whose feet touch the water. All four players who have crossed now successfully throw the rope to their partners, and their partners all catch them, even though the Green Monkeys’ girl almost drops her rope. “Oh, she dropped it—okay, she’s got it!” Kirk narrates. Meanwhile, the Orange Iguanas’ boy and the Silver Snakes’ girl successfully swing across on their second try and throw their rope to their partners. The Orange Iguanas’ girl successfully catches hers, but the Silver Snakes’ boy fails to catch his, prompting another throw. Even as this occurs, the other four teams successfully swing across, and hit their gongs in quick succession in this order: Red Jaguars, Green Monkeys, Purple Parrots, and Blue Barracudas.

“That’s it!” Kirk shouts as he rushes to stand beside the Purple Parrots. “Purple Parrots, you guys hung in there, and now going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…along with the Green Monkeys,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars! The Orange Iguanas and the Silver Snakes came up a little short, but we’ve got a nice gift for ‘em anyway, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Claire’s.

“The legend of the Lost Cap of Casey Jones,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Lost Cap of Casey Jones,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the lost cap—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.

“Let’s rock,” Olmec replies.
“Okay then,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!”

All six team members jump in the Moat and grab the rope. The Blue Barracudas’ boy, Green Monkeys’ girl and Purple Parrots’ boy are first back on dry land, followed about a second later by the Red Jaguars’ boy. These four teams swing across as the other teams climb out of the Moat, and all four make it across and throw the rope to their partners. The Silver Snakes’ boy successfully swings across, as does the Orange Iguanas’ girl, and both throw their ropes to their respective partners. “All six of these teams are doing great, but we can only take four of ‘em!” Kirk narrates. The other four teams have successfully swung across, and all four rush to hit their gongs in this order: Purple Parrots, Blue Barracudas, Red Jaguars, and Green Monkeys.

“That’s it—we’ve got our four winning teams!” shouts Kirk as he goes over to stand beside the Purple Parrots. “It was fast and furious, but the Purple Parrots had no problems whatsoever, and going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…and the Green Monkeys,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Blue Barracudas, and the Red Jaguars! The Orange Iguanas and the Silver Snakes were really good, too. They’re not gonna be goin’ home empty-handed. We have a great gift for ‘em!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from FYE.

“The legend of the Silver Spurs of Buffalo Bill,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Silver Spurs of Buffalo Bill,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have the chance to retrieve the silver spurs—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.

All six teams leap into the Moat and grab the rope fairly quickly. They all scramble out onto the dock, with the Blue Barracudas’ boy making it out first, followed closely by the Purple Parrots’ boy and the Silver Snakes’ girl. The other teams make it out no more than three seconds afterward. All the teams successfully swing across with no one falling in, and all the remaining team members successfully catch the rope thrown to them. “It’s neck and neck, but something’s gotta give,” Kirk narrates. The second players all swing across, but only the Blue Barracudas’ girl and the Red Jaguars’ girl make it across without touching the water, and they both rush over to hit their team’s gong. The remaining players return to their starting positions and swing across again. “It’s gonna come down to the wire, I can feel it!” Kirk narrates. The Silver Snakes’ boy, Green Monkeys’ boy and the Purple Parrots’ girl successfully make it across, and these three teams rush over to hit their gongs, with the Green Monkeys’ boy just coming within an eyelash of being in the top four.

“That’s it! We’ve got our four teams!” Kirk shouts, walking over and standing beside the Silver Snakes. “The Silver Snakes hung in there; that was a close race to the gongs there at the last second. But they did it, and going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Purple Parrots,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Blue Barracudas, and the Red Jaguars! The Green Monkeys and the Orange Iguanas were…well, they were this close! They’re not goin’ home empty-handed, because we’ve got a fabulous gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Old Navy.

“The legend of the Well-Worn Gloves of Joe Louis,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Well-Worn Gloves of Joe Louis,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Well-Worn Gloves—will it be:

“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Ready, willing and able,” Olmec replies.
“Okay,” says Kirk. “On your mark, get set, GO!!”

All six teams jump into the Moat and grab the rope. Everyone makes it out of the water at about the same time except the Purple Parrots’ girl, who struggles to climb out of the Moat because of her short stature. “She might need some help getting out,” Kirk narrates as she finally climbs out. The other teams successfully swing across except the Green Monkeys’ boy, who slips off the rope and falls in the drink. The Purple Parrots’ girl successfully swings across as the other four teams who have crossed throw the ropes to their partner, and everyone catches their respective rope. All the teams successfully swing across except the Red Jaguars’ girl, whose feet touch the water. The Green Monkeys’ boy has successfully made it across on his second try, and he throws the rope to his partner. Meanwhile, the Blue Barracudas, Orange Iguanas and Silver Snakes hit their gongs in that order. “Now we only need one more team; who will it be?” Kirk narrates. The Green Monkeys’ girl and Purple Parrots’ boy both swing across, and both race over to hit their gongs, with the Green Monkeys just beating out the Purple Parrots.

“That’s it! We have four teams!” Kirk shouts as he goes over to stand beside the Silver Snakes. “Silver Snakes were over in a flash, they didn’t falter one bit—going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the tenacious Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s names to allow for applause. “And the unshakable Green Monkeys, and the resilient Blue Barracudas! The Red Jaguars and the Purple Parrots just missed it by this much; they’re not going home empty-handed.

All six teams leap into the moat and grab the rope. The Orange Iguanas’ boy is first back on dry land, followed closely by the Green Monkeys’ boy and the Red Jaguars’ boy. The remaining teams are out of the water as these three players swing across, all making it successfully. The other teams swing across as well, and all make it except the Silver Snakes’ girl, whose feet touch the water. “This is really close—I think it’s gonna come down to the wire!” Kirk narrates. The Blue Barracudas’ girl’s feet touch the water as she’s swinging, prompting her to go back, while the Silver Snakes’ girl makes it across on her second swing. However, the other four teams’ second players all make it across successfully and all hit the gong in this order: Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots, and Red Jaguars.

“That’s it! We’ve got our four teams!” Kirk says, walking over to the Purple Parrots. “Purple Parrots had no problem getting across, it was like nothing—going on to the Steps of the Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…and the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s names to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys, and the Red Jaguars! Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes did great, but came up just a little bit short.

All six teams jump in and grab the rope at about the same time. They all make their way back to dry land, with the Silver Snakes’ girl and the Red Jaguars’ boy making it back first. The remaining teams are only seconds behind. All the teams swing for the other side at roughly the same time, but the Silver Snakes’ girl and the Blue Barracudas’ boy touch the water, so they have to go back. All the other teams make it across, however, and all four successfully throw the rope to their partner. “This is gonna be a close one, I can tell!” Kirk narrates. As the second members of each team take off, the Green Monkeys’ girl falls off the rope, so she swims back to start again, taking the rope with her. The Blue Barracudas’ boy makes it across successfully on his second try, but the Silver Snakes’ girl is not so lucky—she again touches the water, and swims back to begin again. However, the Red Jaguars, Purple Parrots and Orange Iguanas successfully make it across, and hit their gong in that order. “Three teams—we can only take one more!” Kirk narrates. The Blue Barracudas’ girl successfully swings across, but so does the Green Monkeys’ girl. The two have a very close race to their respective gong, with the Green Monkeys beating the Blue Barracudas by mere inches.

“That’s it! We’ve got four teams!” Kirk shouts as he walks over to stand beside the Purple Parrots. “Purple Parrots with no problem getting across, they blazed across that Moat—going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…along with the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys…and the Red Jaguars! The Blue Barracudas and the Silver Snakes gave it their all, too, and they’re not goin’ home empty-handed. We have a great gift for ‘em, and here it is.” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Old Navy.

Episode 3: The Silk Cummerbund of Elvis Presley

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Silk Cummerbund of Elvis Presley,” Olmec replies.

“Aha, the Silk Cummerbund of Elvis Presley,” Kirk repeats. “Well, the legend’s been set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Silk Cummerbund—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some tough pysi—physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one of these teams will have a chance to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they have to cross the Moat, and here’s Olmec to tell us how they’ll have to do that today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across. Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way. If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk bangs the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“Okay, let’s get started then,” Kirk says. “Teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready, baby?” Kirk asks in a bad Elvis-like voice.
“Yes—and please don’t talk like that,” Olmec replies.
“Okay,” Kirk laughs. “On your mark, get set—GO!!!”

All six teams jump into the Moat and grab the rope at roughly the same rate. The Blue Barracudas’ boy is first back on dry land, followed about a second later by the Red Jaguars’ boy and the Orange Iguanas’ boy. These three players are swinging across by the time the other three have made it back with their ropes, and all three make it across. All the first players successfully cross except the Purple Parrots’ girl, who touches the water. The Red Jaguars’, Blue Barracudas’ and Orange Iguanas’ boys all throw the rope back to their partners, who all catch the ropes at the same time. “It’s really close—it’s gonna come down to the wire, I think!” Kirk narrates. The Green Monkeys’ boy and the Silver Snakes’ girl successfully throw the ropes back to their partners, and all the team members swing across at the same time, none of them touching the water except the Orange Iguanas’ girl. The Red Jaguars, Green Monkeys, Blue Barracudas and Silver Snakes all hit their gongs in that order. The ringing of all the gongs takes less than a second.

“That’s it! Just like that, we’ve got four teams!” Kirk comments as he runs over to stand next to the Silver Snakes. “Silver Snakes were over just like that, no problems here—going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Silver Snakes…and the Green Monkeys,” Kirk briefly pauses to allow for applause between each team. “And the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars! The Iguan—Orange Iguanas and the Purple Parrots were so close, but they’re not goin’ away empty-handed. We have a nice gift for them, and here’s what it is.” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Aeropostale.

The Treasure Room / Legends: Rebirth-The Golden Amulet of Cuauhtémoc
« on: July 29, 2009, 07:36:31 AM »
Episode 2: The Golden Amulet of Cuauhtémoc

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Golden Amulet of Cuauhtémoc,” Olmec replies.

“Ah, the Golden Amulet of Cuauhtémoc,” Kirk replies. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the golden amulet—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one team will have the privilege to enter Olmec’s Temple. But first, they gotta cross the Moat, and Olmec will tell us how they’ll have to do it today…”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across. Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way. If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk bangs the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, let’s get this adventure started,” says Kirk. “Hey teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“Olmec, are you ready?” Kirk asks.
“Oooohh yeah,” Olmec replies.
“All right,” Kirk says, chuckling. “On your mark, get set, GO!!!”

All six teams jump into the Moat, grab the rope, and make their way back to dry land rather quickly. They all begin their first swing across at roughly the same time, but the Red Jaguars’ boy, the Green Monkeys’ girl and the Silver Snakes’ boy all touch the water, prompting them to begin again. “They touched the water—they’ve gotta go back and start again!” Kirk narrates. The teams that made it across successfully throw the ropes to their partners, and everyone catches them. The Green Monkeys’ girl makes it across on her second swing, as does the Silver Snakes’ boy, but the Red Jaguars’ boy touches the water a second time, and swims back to start again. “This is neck-and-neck…who’s gonna make it?” Kirk narrates. The Orange Iguanas’ girl, Blue Barracudas’ boy, and Purple Parrots’ girl all have successfully crossed, and they run over to hit their team’s gong in that order. Meanwhile, the Silver Snakes’ girl and Green Monkeys’ boy both catch the rope their partners have thrown to them. The Red Jaguars’ boy successfully swings across and throws the rope to his partner, but the Silver Snakes’ girl and the Green Monkeys’ boy have both crossed (however, the Silver Snakes’ boy touched the water), and they both have a race to hit the gong, with the Green Monkeys beating out the Silver Snakes.

“That’s it! We’ve got our four teams!” Kirk says as he walks over to stand beside the Purple Parrots. “Purple Parrots, they were over in a flash—going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Purple Parrots…along with the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team to allow for applause. “And the Green Monkeys…and the Blue Barracudas! Red…Jaguars and Silver Snakes gave it a great effort, too, didn’t they? We’ve got a great gift for ‘em, and here’s what it is!” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Pacsun.

Episode 1: The Infamous Lion Skin of the Tsavo Hunter

The camera winds and twists its way through a thick jungle of strange and exotic plants. After a few wrong turns, it finally stops in front of an ancient Mayan temple. At the base of the temple, a giant stone head sits. Suddenly, the head’s eyes light up and it begins to speak:

Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth!” These words appear on the screen. “With your guide, Kirk Fogg! And here he is now!”

A middle-aged man wearing a denim shirt and blue jeans swings in on a rope. He drops down and runs up the Steps of Knowledge, microphone in hand.

“Thank you! Thank you, everybody! Nice to see everyone again! It’s good to see you again, Olmec! Welcome to Legends of the Hidden Temple: Rebirth. The rooms are filled with lost treasures protected by mysterious Mayan Temple Guards. Only Olmec knows the legends behind each of these newly discovered treasures in his Temple…which one are we gonna hear about today, Olmec?”

“The legend of the Infamous Lion Skin of the Tsavo Hunter,” Olmec replies.

“Oh, the Infamous Lion Skin of the Tsavo Hunter,” Kirk replies. “Well, the legend is set, and one of these six teams will have a chance to retrieve the Lion Skin—will it be:

“The Red Jaguars?” The camera zooms in on each team as they are introduced.
“The Blue Barracudas?
“The Green Monkeys?
“The Orange Iguanas?
“The Purple Parrots?
“Or the Silver Snakes?

“They’ll have to pass through some tough physical and mental tests, but in the end, only one of these six teams will earn the prestigious right to enter the Olmec’s Temple for the first time in fourteen years! But first, they have to cross the infamous Moat, and here’s the Olmec to explain how they’ll have to do that. Olmec!”

Olmec begins to explain the Moat Crossing:
“Before you, a long rope hangs into the Moat. When Kirk gives the signal, one player from each team will swim out to the rope, grab it, swim back with it, and swing across. Once you’re safely across, throw the rope to your partner, who will then swing across in the same way. If your feet touch the water while you’re swinging, you must go back and start again. Once both players reach the other side, run over and hit the gong.” Kirk hits the Silver Snakes’ gong to demonstrate. “The first four teams to hit their gongs will go on to the next round!”

“All right, I’m ready,” Kirk says. “Teams, are you ready?”
All six teams scream and cheer in response.
“They’re ready, Olmec. Are you?” Kirk asks.
“This rock is ready to roll,” Olmec replies.
“Oho, it’s been a long time since I’ve heard that one,” Kirk laughs. “All right, on your mark, get set, GO!!!”

All six teams jump into the Moat and grab the rope at roughly the same time. The Silver Snakes’ girl is first back, followed about a second later by the Green Monkeys’ boy and the Red Jaguars’ boy. The Orange Iguanas’ girl and the Blue Barracudas’ girl climb back onto the dock as the Silver Snakes’ girl and the Red Jaguars’ boy swing across successfully, while the Green Monkeys’ boy touches the water. The Orange Iguanas’ girl swings across, with the Blue Barracudas’ girl right behind her. The Purple Parrots’ girl is quite slow, having only now just started her first swing attempt. The Silver Snakes’ boy catches the rope and swings across successfully, landing on his rear end. His partner quickly helps him up, and they hit the gong together. The Green Monkeys’ boy successfully crosses on his second swing, but has trouble throwing the rope to his partner. “This is really close—we need three more teams!” Kirk narrates. Almost instantly after he says this, the Orange Iguanas’ boy lands on the dock and dashes over to hit the gong. The Purple Parrots’ girl finally makes it across after several failed swing attempts, and throws the rope to her male partner. The Green Monkeys’ girl swings across, but her feet touch the water, prompting the spotters to send her back. The Blue Barracudas’ boy steps onto dry land at about same time as the Red Jaguars’ girl, and they both dash over to hit their gongs.

“That’s it! That is it!” Kirk shouts, standing beside the Silver Snakes. “They blazed across that Moat, no problem, and as a result, the Silver Snakes are going on to the Steps of Knowledge…along with the Orange Iguanas,” Kirk briefly pauses between each team’s name to allow for applause. “And the Blue Barracudas…and the Red Jaguars! Green Iguanas and Purple Parrots gave it a great effort, too. They’re not gonna go away empty-handed, because we’ve got a nice gift for ‘em, don’t we, Dee?” They receive a $50 gift certificate from Gamestop.

As you may have seen from some of my previous posts, I have been planning on posting some of my own fanfics.  Before I do that, however, I feel it’s common courtesy to give you the Temple Layouts and the fanfic titles I plan to use.

A few notes about the show: This show is a theoretical "rejuvenation" of Legends, which takes place in the present (as in right now, 2009-2010). Therefore, the prizes and allusions in the fanfics will reflect this. There will also be a few more changes that will be introduced as I go along.

The Temple Layouts



Each number corresponds with the number on the map.

Season 1
Season 1 has five Temple Layouts.

Layout 1
1. The Crypt--Same thing as the old show.
2. The Ledges--Same as always.
3. The Rope Labyrinth--This room is a large pit with numerous actuators leading to every room it borders.  Strewn around the room are several thick, white ropes that obstruct the contestant’s pathway to the other side.  The top half of the room contains more ropes than the bottom half, so no matter if a contestant enters the Temple via the Crypt or the Ledges, they will still have to crawl through some sort of obstacle to proceed.
4. The Great Seal Room--This room has a cylindrical column in the center, and at the back, a free-standing shelf with four distinct round seals on it.  The contestant must place the correct seal in a small indentation at the top of the column to open the door to the next room.
5. The Chamber of the Sacred Markers--Same as Season 3 of the old show.
6. The Tomb of the Headless Kings--This “veteran room” sees a major change this time around.  There are still two kings, but only one vine which opens the trapdoors, significantly reducing the amount of time needed to progress through the room.
7. The Safari Room--This room’s walls are decorated in animal-print, and five (fake) heads of African animals are mounted on the walls—two on either side of the room, and three in the back.  Going from left to right, the heads are those of a leopard, a rhinoceros, an elephant, a Cape buffalo, and a lion.  The contestant must push in the correct animal head to open the door to the next room.
8. The Bamboo Forest--Same as the Season 1 Bamboo Forest in the old show (here’s looking at you, TBF!).
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey--Could you really have Legends without this room?
10. The Dark Forest--Essentially the same, except the trees’ arms are quite a bit longer. The golden doors in the back lead to Room 11, Room 9, and Room 7, respectively.
11. The Room of the Secret Password--Same room, except the password “Klaatu barata nikto” has been replaced with “Dr. Livingstone, I presume”.
12. The Dungeon--Exactly the same room as Season 1 of the old Legends.
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage--Same old, same old.

Layout 2
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Bottomless Pit--This room is essentially identical to The Pit from Season 2 of the old Legends.  A large room, filled with numerous plastic balls on the bottom, with two stone outcroppings on either side (the only difference is that the balls are colored black and purple).  The contestant must swing across on a rope hanging in the room and hit the actuator to open the door to the next room.
4. The Lookout Tower--This room contains nothing but a small telescope on the railing, looking out at the wall behind the audience, where a message is written.  However, the telescope is out of focus.  The contestant must use the two knobs on the left and right side of the telescope to focus it.  As soon as they can discern the message, they must yell out what it says to open the door to the next room.
5. The Geographer’s Study--This room is decorated with two old-fashioned globes on either side of it, but its most distinguishing characteristic is a large map of the world at the back (separated, of course, by the ladder into the Lookout Tower).  This map is missing several pieces, which are strewn about the room.  The contestant must find these pieces and correctly place them to open the door to the next room.
6. The Owl’s Nest--Six nests are arranged in a circle in the center of this room, and strewn all over the room are numerous stuffed owls.  The contestant must find the sole white owl among the other brown or gray ones, and then attach it to the one nest out of the six that it belongs on to open the door to the next room.
7. The Inventor’s Workshop--This room has a large capstan in the center of it, and a large “machine” with numerous gears dons the back wall.  The contestant must spin the capstan completely around four times, until the gears begin to turn (actually, the lighting in the room only gives the impression that they turn), and the door to the next room opens.
8. The Chamber of the Four Elements--Decorated like a Roman temple, this room has a large rectangle in the back separated into four parts.  Around the edges of the rectangle are four large tiles that fit into these slots.  These tiles are decorated with symbols of the four ancient Roman elements—fire, air, earth, and water.  The contestant must place the four tiles in the rectangle, in the correct order, to open the door to the next room.  In this Temple Layout, he tiles have no set order, so ANY combination could be the correct one, making this a very time-consuming room.  The room also has two ladders at the back, which lead to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the Inventor’s Workshop.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Room of the Secret Password
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Layout 3
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Bottomless Pit
4. The Lunar Landing--This room is decorated like the 1969 moon landing.  At the back of the room is a rotating cylinder decorated like a satellite.  Similar to the Season 1 Observatory, the contestant must align a puzzle on the satellite to open the door to the next room.
5. The Clockwork Room--This room has six clocks on the back wall (separated of course, by the Temple Guard door), with a seventh clock on the Temple Guard door itself.  The contestant must set the six clocks to the same time as the seventh clock (usually 12:00, but sometimes 6:00) to open the door to the next room.
6. The Atlantean Altar--Decorated up like sunken ruins, this room has eight tiles on the back wall (four on each side, similar to the Laser Light Room).  The contestant needs to uncover the tile that has blue light behind it to open the door to the next room.  Olmec calls this “uncovering the tile that lets in the waters of Atlantis”.
7. The Room of the Mystical Keys (used with permission from silverMarker)--There are 9 small compartments aligned in the back of the room (3x3).  The contestant must reach into the compartments and find two keys that are hidden in one each, and then place each one in the correct two of three respective pedestals to open the door.
8. The Jungle Ruins--This room is decorated like an ancient city in the rain forest, with stone structures, rocks and plants galore all over the room.  Like the Swamp from Season 2 of the old Legends, the contestant must maneuver around all this to get to the other side of the room to hit an actuator to go to the next room.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Room of the Secret Password
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Layout 4
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Rope Labyrinth
4. The Sculptor's Studio--This room has three pedestals with a statue on top of each one.  Like the King’s Storeroom, the contestant must break open the hollow sculptures to find a key, which they then insert in the correct hole on the pedestals to open the door to the next room.
5. The Chamber of the Sacred Markers
6. The Owl’s Nest
7. The Inventor’s Workshop
8. The Ancient Cave--This room, which is decorated like a cave, has a series of “cave paintings” depicting “cavemen” on the back wall.  Just like the Jester’s Court from Season 3 of the old Legends, the contestant must align their body with the correct wall painting to open the door to the next room.  The room also contains two ladders at the back, which lead to the Shrine of the Silver Monkey and the Inventor’s Workshop.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Room of the Secret Password
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Layout 5
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Rope Labyrinth
4. The Magician’s Chamber--There are three pedestals in this room, each with a top hat on it.  The contestant must wave their hand over the top hats to find the (stuffed) rabbit, which will jump out when the hat that contains it is waved over.  The rabbit must then be pulled out of the hat to open the door to the next room.
5. The Clockwork Room
6. The Atlantean Altar
7. The Room of the Golden Torches (used with permission from The Bamboo Forest)--There are three golden torches in the three pedestals of the room, and each has a large bulb on top. The contestant must take a long stick with a "flame" on its tip (just another bulb like the ones on the torches) and touch the tips of the three torches gently. When the correct one lights up, the doors open.
8. The Snake Pit--This room is identical to the Jungle Ruins, except that most of the plants and stone structures are gone, and numerous rubber snakes litter the room—seven, to be exact.  The contestant must place all seven snakes in a large tree stump at the back of the room to open the door to the next room.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Room of the Secret Password
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Season 2
Season 2 only has three Temple layouts.

Layout 1
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Bottomless Pit
4. The Great Seal Room
5. The Candelabra Room--Located on the back wall of this room are six candelabras—three to the right of the door to the Great Seal Room, and three to the left of it.  The contestant must push the actuator under the correct candelabra to light it up, which will open the door to the next room.
6. The Tomb of the Headless Kings
7. The Safari Room
8. The Snake Pit--Same room, new objective. The snakes are now made of cloth bags stuffed with pellets, like a beanbag, and they're much larger, about the size of a door draft-guard. The contestant must find all the snakes in the room (either two or three, depending on the episode) and thread them through a large hole in the side of the tree stump to open the door to the next room.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Lightning Ball Room--Exactly the same as the old Lightning Ball Room.
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Layout 2
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Bottomless Pit
4. The Lookout Tower
5. The Geographer’s Study
6. The Jewel Mine--In the center of this room is a stationary mine cart. Scattered about the room are ten jewels. The contestant must place all the jewels in the mine cart to open the door to the next room. A Temple Guard may also be hiding in the mine cart.
7. The Shaolin Dojo--Sort of like the Room of the Ancient Warriors, except I’ve added my own twist to it.  A yin-yang symbol at the front of the room, and at the back are three suits of armor.  The player must place the yin-yang on the chest of the correct suit of armor to open the door to the next room.  One of the suits of armor could be possessed by a Temple Guard.
8. The Chamber of the Four Elements--Same name, same objective, one big difference--above the slots where the element tiles should go, a pattern above them indicates the correct tile for the slot.  This greatly reduces the amount of time that must be spent in the room.
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Lightning Ball Room
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

Tournament of Champions Layout
1. The Crypt
2. The Ledges
3. The Rope Labyrinth
4. The Lunar Landing
5. The Chamber of the Sacred Markers
6. The Tomb of Forgotten Treasures--This room consists of eight compartments at the back of the room, each one filled with an artifact from a previous episode.  The player must find the artifact from the episode they first appeared on and place it on a pedestal in order to proceed.
7. The Emperor’s Storeroom--This new room is a nod to the King’s Storeroom from episodes past.  Decorated like a Chinese temple, it features six pedestals near the back of the room, with enough space between them and the back wall for the player to walk between.  Each pedestal has a ceramic pot decorated like a priceless Ming vase.  The player must smash the vases in search of a key, then insert said key into the right hole in one of the pedestals to open the door to the next room.
8. The Ancient Cave
9. The Shrine of the Silver Monkey
10. The Dark Forest
11. The Tortoise’s Territory--A long, narrow post stands in the center of the room, and six turtle shells are arranged in a row at the back.  The player must stack the turtle shells on the post, in order from smallest to largest, to open the door to the next room.  Only the smallest shell will go on the bottom, only the next-to-smallest shell will go on top of the smallest shell, etc.
12. The Dungeon
13. The Pharaoh’s Secret Passage

And now, the episodes themselves.  Hope I didn’t duplicate (or come close to duplicating) anybody’s.  If I did, I profoundly and deeply apologize.

The Moat / Question...concerns artifact names in fanfics...
« on: July 22, 2009, 07:18:27 AM »
Just a quick question. I'm planning on posting some of my fanfics in the Treasure Room soon, and some of the artifacts I've come up with are similar to some posted in the "Make Up Your Own Artifacts" thread. Do I need to get permission from these people to use these artifact names, and if so, how do I do it?

Thanks, and please reply soon!

The Dark Forest / Journalist Walter Cronkite dies at 92
« on: July 17, 2009, 04:12:25 PM »
Legendary CBS journalist Walter Cronkite has died of cerebrovascular disease at the age of 92. He was the anchor for CBS news for 19 years (1962-1981). Known by many as "the most trusted man in America", he was known for covering many memorable historical moments through television, including the Moon Landing and John F. Kennedy's assassination.

I myself never grew up watching this guy, but I respect what he did for television and the media in general. He will be missed.

Any thoughts?
