Steps of Knowledge

In the early 1800s, the most powerful leader in Europe was Napoléon Bonaparte. Legend has it that after conquering much of the world, he decided to give himself the title "King of France and Most of the World".

"Too long," sniffed Pierre, his trusty valet. "And these days, 'King' is so common."

"Warrior of the Western World?"

"Mais non! Too many 'W's', and not impressive enough. Your title must command respect."

"I've got it!", said Napoléon. "Napoléon Bonaparte, Big Boss."

"How about 'Holy Roman Emperor?'"

"By Heaven, Pierre, that is it! I shall crown myself Holy Roman Emperor!" And he turned and headed out to the throne room.

"Uh, Sir--uh, Your Imperial Highness," said Pierre. "Your hat..."

Napoléon turned. "Keep it. I won't be needing it."

And he went out to receive his golden crown. Years later, Napoléon was thrown out of France, and poor Pierre and the hat were lost at sea.

Temple Games

Bring Down the Crowns (Ceiling)

Napoléon had himself crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Pius VII, and when the Pope leaned forward with the crown, Napoléon rudely grabbed it and placed it on his own head. Rebecca and Brian's task, like Napoléon, is to crown themselves. When Kirk gave the signal, each player had to grab a rope with each hand, and pull him/herself up to the crowns. Once at the top, he/she had to grab a crown, placed it on his/her head and float back down. The player to bring down all four crowns or the player to bring down the most crowns in 60 seconds won. Both players tied with 2 crowns each, awarding each of them a half pendant of life.

Emperor Napoléon (Mountain)

Napoléon Bonaparte created an empire by quickly conquering other European countries. One player from each team had two pegs. Before Ryan and Carly stood a mountain with many holes into which their pegs fit, and it is divided into four sections each named for one of the countries Napoléon defeated (Italy, Spain, Germany, and Holland). Each country can be conquered by a player placing his/her peg in the secret hole that sets off the victory salute at the top of the mountain. When Kirk gave the signal, both players had to start putting their pegs into as many holes as possible. Once a country is conquered, the player who conquered it had to move on to the next one. The player to conquer all four countries or the player furthest along in 60 seconds won. Ryan beat Carly 2-1, awarding Ryan a half pendant of life.

Battle of Austerlitz (Sack Swing)

In the famous Battle of Austerlitz, Napoléon defeated the Austrian army. The teams' task was to defeat the said army just like Napoléon defeated the Austrians. One player was suspended in a sack, and when Kirk gave the signal, his/her partner had to swing them at a soldier statue. The team to knock down all three of their soldiers or the team with the most soldiers knocked down in 60 seconds won. The Red Jaguars knocked down their last soldier with 41 seconds of spare time, awarding them a full pendant of life and sending them to Olmec's temple with 1½ pendants. The Orange Iguanas managed to knock down two.

Carly quickly followed his path directly and founded the half pendant in the Rock Quarry, which she would need for the guard in the Swamp. After that, Carly entered the Dark Forest and Busted though the wall into the Mine Shaft. She climbed the ladder but was unable to see the actuator, Forcing her to take the elevator into the Lightning Room.

  • The Temple Guard in the Swamp is the last one in that room space because the room was converted into the Jester's Court, which never housed a temple guard.
  • Goof: The Crown of Queen Nzinga was in the Lightning Room during the temple games!
