Legends of the Hidden Temple - Steps of Knowledge

Characters: The four teams that won the moat race!
Content: The Steps of Knowledge
Location: Deck 5
Time of day: Afternoon
Warnings: A really, really stupid legend


[Your characters now find themselves past the moat, onto a series of broad steps, with large marked buttons on each. The steps start out as there being room for four, but size down until there are only two left at the bottom. There are four steps total. There is also a tiny little altar in front of the steps...and on it is Tom's head. It's okay, he's been headless plenty of times before.

Finally, Mike once again swings onto the scene!]


Mike: Great job, everyone! Don't worry, teams that didn't cross the moat...you still get a prize! In fact, you get...a CASE OF GO-GURT!

This next round is basically a multiple-choice history lesson! Tom is going to tell us about the legend of the Venom Cock of Clutch Re, so pay attention, because your knowledge of the legend could bring you a step closer to the temple.

[Tom clears his throat, and begins the legend...]

Tom: Since the experiment this week is a real turd of a story called "Touched By Venom," so is this legend! In a valley in some unnamed fantasy kingdom, there was a huuuuge land called Clutch Re. No, I don't know what sort of place a 'Clutch' is supposed to be. The realm of Clutch Re was home to some of the best dragonmasters in allll the kingdom! It was also home to a really huge pottery clan. There, the women were separated from the men, even though the women and men were doing the exact same thing by making pottery all day. Because of this segregated society, the men came to revere something known as the "Venom Cock." But women did not revere it as men did!

But there was one woman, whose name I can't remember but was Darq the protagonist's mother, who defied these cultural norms! And since she was a potter, she decided to make her own Venom Cock, out of clay! So she secretly sculpted the rooster out of clay, and injected it with a special poison that could not be tasted or smelled. However, it was only poisonous if you ate it. That way nobody would revere the Venom Cock, because nobody knew it was venom in the first place, and she could laugh about how foolish all those men were. Ha, haha! However, on the day of Mombe Taro, the Venom Cock was lost, and wound up in the Temple of the SOL! Your job is to find the Venom Cock and bring it back here! You know, after you pass this quiz and do the other temple games first. Haha!

[OOC: Once again, the winners of this round will be determined by dice roll, so that all players get the chance to put their characters in! Two out of the four teams will win and move on to the next round, and the winners will be announced in a comment below.

For this log, Tom will give all the characters a multiple-choice question, and your characters will respond with an answer. They can give a correct answer, an incorrect one, a totally different answer, or refuse to answer at all...whatever will either get them to the winning step or cause them to lose. Teams must answer three questions correctly to win this round. Once a character gives an answer, Tom will respond on if they are correct or not, and move on to the next question. Once two teams have gotten to the bottom of the steps, then a new log will be posted for the next round!]
