Temple of the Dragon.
Level by StormChaser.
Story: Lara must recover the five pieces of gold armour stolen by a evil warlord. To do this she must enter the forbidden Temple Of The Dragon.
Sliding into a valley next to a Volcano, you will find a small medipack on the ridge to the right, then go down to the lava-flow and jump round the N side and find some Ammo on the rock near the building NW. Jump around the corner to the ledge S of here in the building and get the small medipack, jump around the next corner to the S and reach the S side of the lava-flow and go into the Temple square W.
Coming from the steps there’s a Buddha picture on the block in front, push the button there to get some light into the place. There are some Scorps running around, so shoot those and check out the place, go through the pool to the NW corner and notice the closed door, climb the block to the right and get the Shotgun from behind the stone structure. Coming back to the S side, there are several gates, one W and 4 to the S, we’ll be back here later.
Go out the opening E and straight, past the r side of the high pillar and there’s a Tiger there, I could shoot it from a distance with pistols, as it didn’t go into hiding. Go into that valley where the Tiger was and Lara looks left???. Get the Ammo on the path and go right into that lower valley.
To the right is an opening in the wall (later), and go to the palm tree NE and jump up the SE slope, turn left and go on over the rocks to see a Tiger below. When you drop down there, a Ninja and a Scorp will join the Tiger and you’ll have a nice battle. Pick up the Medipack in the corner and the Ammo the ninja dropped, go on through this gorge to reach another Ammo pickup and then climb up in the SW corner, go over to the crates at the wall and behind those crates are 2 Ammo pickups.
1st Guardian Key.
Now enter that opening in W wall and go into the 2nd left passage, shoot the Scorp and the Ninja, get the 1st Guardian Key and some Ammo, there’s a briefcase and a laptop, both will remain here as you can’t take them.
The Laser sight.
Go back out and right and right again, into that 1st passage and come to a murky pool where a Croc will be waiting for you, shoot it and swim into that tunnel S, go up on shore and get the Laser sight in the left corner. Swim back (the left tunnel is closed off) and get back to the Lower Valley, go left and climb the rocks to go past the volcano to the Temple square. Go to the SW corner to find the keyhole for the Guardian Key, the gate next to you opens, go into the Key room.
The Key room.
Inside go left and shoot the first vase you see on the higher centre structure, inside it was the 2nd Guardian Key, have a look around and see you have to place 4 Guardian keys and 4 Golden Vraeusses here. So you’ll be back.
As the read-me states you can place the key to open any gate you like now, I first did the SE Keyhole for the left gate.
Place the 1st Key in the SE key-hole to open the left gate on Temple square, you saw in the screenshot.
Go outside and enter the gate, to the left is a wooden gate you saw in the passage where you got the 1st Guardian Key. A bit further is a button that will open the gate to the Labyrinth. The 1st passage left leads to a hop and slide into that pool where you shot the Croc, so no need to get in there, the second passage, to the right leads to a hole for a Guardian Key and a closed gate (later).
Go S and passing through the palm tree garden a Swordsman will appear, shoot him and grab the 3rd Guardian Key he will leave behind. Go W and pass the Tiger cage to the right, go left at the next crossing and push the button in that dark alley, gates open to the W area behind you.
Go in and straight W, shooting a couple of Ninjas sneaking up from behind, shoot the Scorp when you go right in the end and then left into that area with the 2 Lion Statues, in the back, past the little shrine is a low block in the corner, so you can climb the W wall and look for the hole to the right where you’ll find the 1st Golden Vraeus.
Climb down and at the shrine go right and into a room S, behind that black block is a Medipack. Back to the shrine and to the E, at the 2 Lion Statues to the left and climb the first low block you see, look W and spot the 4th Guardian Key on the pillar E, go get it and drop down the e side of the ledge, go back to the gate E and shoot the 3 Ninjas that will appear, get the Ammo, small medipack and Flares that were dropped and go back to the palm tree garden E (there are some more areas back there, but they show you areas you can’t reach from here).
Go left and left intro that passage where you can open the gate to the Tiger cage with one of the Guardian Keys, push the button to the right of the next gate and shoot the Tigers. Go in to getSecret #1, the Breastplate from the block to the right. Head back out and to the left so you get back to Temple square, enter the Key room again. Place the SW Guardian Key to open the 2nd from the left gate on Temple square.
The Water labyrinth.
Follow the tunnel, swimming with your eyes closed (at least for the young) and come up to a Croc pool, the will attack immediately, shoot them and go look for Medipack, Ammo in the grass and the Crossbow along the fence. Then climb up into the opening in E wall and follow to another Croc pool, run jump to the centre ledge and jump to all corners to get Medipacks and the 5th Guardian Key, then go into the SE passage to a Croc pit. Nothing down there, so just jump over and go on to a water hole, there are Crocs in there, jump in and get out, try to shoot them first before you go in and straight, follow the tunnel to where you can swim up to a room with pillars.You could go jump around here, but you can also go NE and pull up on the sloped block on E wall, then backflip to get the 2nd Golden Vraeus from the pillar, go back to the water and swim into the first right and follow till you hear the Secret sound while swimming over a hole, in the hole is Secret #2, the Right Greave, head W again and follow to the hole up, go jump back over the Croc pit, over the Croc pool and dive into the tunnel at the first croc pool to swim back to Temple square.
Go place the next Guardian Key NE and the right hand gate opens. Follow the looong passage to the Caves.
Slide down into a valley and shoot the Tiger, enter the caves and get a Medipack. Go on and go right at the cave-in, hop over the small mount and shoot another Tiger, head into the small opening S at the next crossing and go over some mounts to the W, shoot the Scorp and jump/grabbing left over the corner of that pit, notice the crawlspace and jump over the next pit to shoot the Tiger S and get a Medipack there, return to the crawlspace between the pits and head in. Get the 3rd Golden Vraeus from the pit in the end and return outside, jump back W over the pit and follow the caves back to that 1st big crossing way N.
Go right and jump over the mount at the cave-in. You’ll end up at a lava pit, to the left is a small medipack and from the highest point of the ledge next to it you can run jump to the ledge in front of an opening in W wall, jump/grab the pillar N of it and get the 6th Guardian Key. Jump to the block to the right (in the centre of the lava pit and run jump into the N cave, in the end is a pit with Secret #3, the Left Gauntlet. Return to the lava pit shooting the Scorp and jump to the W ledge again to go into the passage there, open the door in the end and go on. Follow to where you cab climb over the lower rocks and finally safety drop into a dark valley, go N to that palm tree and climb the NW ledges to come back into the Lower Valley, go to the climb over the rocks N side and return to the Temple square.
Go place the last Guardian Key NW. The gate 2nd from right opens on Temple square.
Go in and climb the block left to jump/grab up into the hole in the ceiling up into the W passage and follow to a slide down into the dark Crypts, to the right at the crossing is a stationary Boulder? And to the left is another crossing with a view to the Tiger cage left, so go right and follow to a high corridor, get up on the block in the room at the end and jump to the higher wall S, get the small medipack on that wall and drop into the other side’s passage, go on to a room where Dart traps start. Crawl or just sprint through, climb up in the end to come to a treasure room, there is a small medipack in one of the boxes and take notice of the one vase there, then go up in the S passage. Drop into a room from the end, there are a bunch of pits here, only the NE corner one holds Ammo, then head W and shoot the vase for the small medipack, go N into a red room with Darts, go into the hole in the floor to get Secret #4, the Left Greave.
Go out to the corridor S and into the S green passage and go left, stay close to the wall as there are dart traps here, climb up in the end and just before the crossing in the next passage is a hole up in the ceiling, go up and into a pit to get the 4th Golden Vraeus. Drop down into the lower passage again and go into the E passage, from the block there you can climb up even higher and go to the end where you can safety drop into the Key room. From the pillar a run jump to that central block where the 4 Golden Vraeusses can be placed, 4 gates open W, go in and push the button there to open that door N on Temple square, go to the right to get the Revolver and a Medipack and in the other side passage is a Medipack. Wait a bit and hear footsteps coming, 3 Swordsmen storm in, now you have the right equipment, so…
Go to the N side of Temple square, shoot those waiting Swordsmen and go up to the door, right into the passage and grab the Medipack on the block, go left into the next lower passage and then right again, sprint to the other side of that square and shoot the Native Horseman, before he climbs the horse (if you’re lucky) then finish him off and get the Guardian Key he drops. Look for a brown block in front of the hut and jump/grab up to the roof of the hut, jump/grab into the opening in the S wall and follow to the next square, drop and shoot the 2 Swordsmen, get the small medipack and place the Guardian Key in the other end of the square.
Enter the next place and go to the NE corner, grab the sloped pillar and pull up. Backflip to the one behind and go climb up to the S ledge go around over the ledges or run jump-grab the rope and swing over, go right and climb up to the corner to drop into the next square, Look around the right hand corner to spot the final 5th Secret, the Right Gauntlet. Drop to the ground and don’t get too close to that fountain, you will mysteriously burn. In the SW corner is a button to open the door, go in and come to where you left the Gondola, only problem is the gate won’t open, so dive into the water and swim W, follow to where you can climb out, Climb from the block to the upper floor in the next room and run through the Darts, get a small medipack to the right and jump over the pit at the lions to push the button for the gate. Return to the Gondola and swim out, go up left and follow the road back home…..
