A Solemn Farewell (12/31/07):
It's been forty-four months--forty-four months since The King's Storeroom humbly opened as a fan site of Legends of the Hidden Temple on April 11, 2004, dedicated to capturing the spirit of Chris Reynolds' accomplishments and the hearts of the show's most beloved fans, providing a detailed description of the show's format, temple layouts, and most importantly, every episode created. On that red letter Sunday, Ed could not have imagined the hard work that his vision would require, but nor could he have imagined the magnificence of its output.
The episode list began as quickly as Ed's recycling bin filled with the square sheets of notepaper on which the episodes were cataloged. It took more than a year, but at last, the episode list had been completed, combining scores of previously disconnected information into one, supreme guide. In the coming years, Ed brought a huge wealth of information and activities to the site, like interviews, quizzes, music, pictures, and of course, Temple Runner, but Ed's nostalgia of the show wore off after the episode guide was completed.
Two years later, looking to regain that same spirit that brought the site through its first few years, Ed invited Jake Potts as his assistant to work on the site. His determination to serve the site he knew so well paid off, as he and Ed combined to work on projects of a caliber previously unimaginable with a single person's waning interest.
Now we both stand before you to say today will be the symbolic end of the website, the same day that Nick GaS, Legends' home turf for eight years, is being taken off the air.
It was a tough decision to make, but we've come to realize that both of us are ready to move on from Legends, move on from the site, move on from Nick game shows. We will continue to fix up loose ends on the website for as long as we remember it's address, but expect fewer, if any, updates to the website in the future.
Even though we're leaving, we couldn't do it without leaving at least some memento of our work for you to enjoy. We hereby announce the arrival of the Illustrated Episode list, with over 1600 additional pictures of the show nestled in the beautiful new pages cataloging each episode.
There is little else to add. Keep enjoying Legends if you wish--after all, the choices are yours and yours alone. It's been a good forty-four months. Thank you all!
An extra note from Jake: After joining The King's Storeroom staff on January 28th, 2007, I was a big part in the site's staff. I've added most of the Advanced Statistics and helped put together the new episode pages. We also need help in finishing the additional summaries! Thank you everybody!
