  • The Upside-down Compass of Henry Hudson

    The Purple Parrots swept the Steps of Knowledge, they swept the Temple Games, but they came up a bit short on the Temple Run. The Parrots had to face a difficult Temple; the rooms they were forced into took a substantial amount of time to complete. The frontrunner, while often hesitant, fared quite well in the temple, and managed to make it to her sixth room, the King's Storeroom, where she was removed by a temple guard. The second runner was certainly quick, but took two turns that slowed the team's progress. First, instead of entering the Ledges directly, he went up to the Crypt and then downwards. Secondly, the door from the Pit of the Pendulum to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers had opened after the frontrunner completed the Chamber's objective, but the second player neglected to take the open shortcut. He ran out of time in the Shrine, where at the last second he dropped the middle piece of the monkey to the Dark Forest. Tough luck.moreless

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Olmec: One of the most daring explorers of the New World was the Englishman Henry Hudson. In 1609, he set out with his son, John, and a crew of twenty men to search for the Northwest Passage, a water route across North America. From England, Hudson sailed so far North that icebergs threatened the ship. Soon the men began to grumble.
      Man #1: We can't go on like this. We'll get caught in the ice and starve, or an iceberg will sink us. And that's just the good news.
      Man #2: It's freezing. We're running out of food. What are we supposed to eat, icicles? We must turn back.
      Olmec: Hudson's son, John, was worried.
      John: Father, the men are close to mutiny.
      Olmec: But Hudson wouldn't listen.
      Hudson: Oh, shut up, you lily-livered sea dogs. Get below and get on with your work.
      Olmec: Legend has it that the quick-witted John took his father's compass and spun the face around so when the needle seemed to point North, it was actually pointed South. Unsuspecting, Henry headed South, and everybody was happy. They explored the Chesapeake Bay, the Delaware Bay, and went halfway up the Hudson River, which was named for Henry. The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson disappeared and resurfaced in The Temple. You must seek out The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson and bring it back here.
      Kirk: Olmec, tell us, where's this Upside-Down Compass?
      Olmec: The Upside-Down Compass of Henry Hudson can be found in The Dark Forest.
