Hello everybody!

I have this idea since i first played with TR,so i think that a new episode would be great with dinosaurs,i mean full of dinosaurs,not just a small level part like in annyversary.
this is how i imagine the story:
We begin on a plane that going from peru to los angeles.after an hour of flying the plane
get in storm.a lighting hit one of the engines,and the other engines are stopped.the plane crash on an island full of dinosaurs and poachers.after the crash we need to head inside the island,where we found an ancient indian town.after that we found a camp in the temple,where we found an other survivors diary with the full description of the islan.after that we need to found a way to leave this island.

I know that this idea is great. But I think that CD won't make that idea anymore. They may doing something more complex and somekind connect with the Trinity company which was mentioned on the reboot.

Whether or not they would like the dinosaur idea, nobody knows, but the involvement of Trinity doesn't exclude any other major theme...

And If there is a part that Lara should sneak around to escape the dino such as the scenes of Jurrasic Park 1: a kitchen scene when 2 children need to sneak around to escape. It would make me more heart attack but It would be nice to see the facial of Lara. XD

So here's my version of the story.

Tomb Raider:The Lost Land

Three month after the events in the dragons triangle Lara is in a plane that going from Peru to Los Angeles.In the past two weeks she’s working on the ica stones,and now she’s going to Sam’s birthday party.She’s talking with Sam on her mobile and tell her that she found something.The plane flight inside a storm,when a few minutes later a lighting hit one of the engines.A few seconds later the remaining engines stopped.The plane landed int he sea near the coast of an unknown island.Lara could get out from the wrecks and swam to the coast,and then she watched that the plane disappeared.She could save her mobile phone,but the battery was only enough for one call,so she quickly called back Sam and started to tell her what happend,but a few seconds later the phone is switched off.

She waited still morning and going inside the island.She was int he coastside jungle,when she step in a rope trap.A few minutes later two men came out and take her to some sort of camp,and put her in a cage.When she saw the guns and traps she realized that they are poachers.She asked them that what are they doing here,but before one of them could answer to her question the earth is started to shaking and a huge giganotosaur ran out of the trees,and grabbed the poacher in front of Lara’s cage.It hit the cage with it’s tail,and the cage is overturned,and the top of the cage is opened.Lara get out of the cage,grabbed the knife that the poacher dropped,and ran to the jungle.At one point she turned back and she saw that five more giganotosaur attacked the camp.

She continiued to head inside the island.She found a dead poacher with a samurai sword,when some kind of dromaeosaur attacked her.She grabbed the sword when the raptor jumped toward her.She quickly stabbed the raptor,and run toward a cliff to look around.She can’t belive what she saw.There were a group of titanosaur,hadrosaur and ornithopod dinosaur near a river.Then she realized that the ica stones are from here.From the cliff she saw some kind of indian building in the jungle,and she decided to go here.She found a path that going down from the cliff.

A half hour later she reach a lower part of the cliff,where she found two poacher.She sliently killed them and grabbed their gun.After that more poacher appeared,but she shoot down all of them.After that she continiued to going down to the valley.At the bottom of the valley she stopped to rest.Then she had a strange feeling,she felt that something watching her.Then something almost bite down her head.She turned back and cut down her attacker’s head.Then she noticed that there are more of them.She started tor an toward the river,but they are too fast.One of them jumped on Lara,and push her to the ground with it’s leg.She only saw the red glowing eyes,and the size of it.It’s around 6m long and 3m tall.Then she heard a roar of a giganotosaur,it was close,so Lara’s attackers just ran away.

She crossed on an old bridge to reach the other side of the river.She turned back and saw a giganotosaur with one of her attacher’s in it’s mouth.It watching Lara then walked away.At least now lara could see her attacker.It has red glowing eyes and as good camouflage that they are almost invisible at night.Then she saw an old indian building near the river.She decided to stay here untill morning.On the wall of the house she found some old hieroglyph about those creatures.She go inside,where she found a bow and some arrow.She thought that a poacher left it here.


At morning she continiued her way to the indian building.Halfway to the building She met with some hadrosaur.She’s just watching them,and when she wanted to touch one the become nervous,and ran away.She thought that this is because her,but a few second later three raptor appeared.She saw a H&K G36C assault rifle at the bottom of a tree.She quickly get it and shoot down the raptors.Ten minutes later she heard people.She’s going to investigate the sounds,and she found a huge poacher camp.They captured an abelisaur and planning to take it to the beach.They saw Lara and wanted to kill her.After killing a lot of them she released the abelisaur and it attacked the remaining poachers.Lara run away and continiue her way.She reach a big gate,and she realized that this was a town.

She entered to the town,and going to the temple.Here she found an other survivor,Joe Hernandez an ex-military soilder.He tells Lara that how did he get here,and give her his diary,where he write down everythin that he learned about the island and the dinos,also he show the hierogliphics in the town to Lara where she learn about that indian civilization.Also he tells that maybe they can leave this island if there are any working helicopter on that mylitary ship that 2 days ago stranded at the other end of the island.But when Lara mentioned the poachers Joe went to a building.It was a weapon store,containing weapons that Joe get from the poachers.

He bring out two FN M249 Para,a lot of ammo,and two rope.Lara asked that what are the ropes for,and Joe said that they are going to captuer Lara’s giganotosaur.He telled her that the indians learnd how to tame dinos such as the top predator of the island.After that Lara tamed her dino they going to the coast,encounterd many danger during their trip.When they reached the boat they found all of the people dead.When Joe cheched the choopers,but none of them worked.Then he go into the bridge to check the radio.It worked.Lara called Sam on the radio and sent her the coordinats of the island.

Sam said that they need an hour to reach the island and switched off the radio.Lara telled the good news,but she saw that Joe just watching the coast.She asked him that what’s the matter,when someone shoot to them.The whole poacher gang are here,and if it isn’t enough it began to darken.30 minutes later it’s completely dark,and the nightstalkers appeared too.They attacked the poachers,and going to the ship.Howewer Joe and Lara are out of ammo,so they called their giganotosaur to help them.After they killed all the poachers and the rest of the nightstalkers,Sam arrived with Jonah and they left the island.

Yeah the good thing about a story with men with guns as well as creatures - be it dinosaurs or aliens or whatever - is that it creates a three-way conflict. a gunfight with human enemies could have a surprise ending by way of a T-rex bursting in and start attacking people.

I feel though that there must be an explanation as to how this Island (I still think it should be table mountain instead) is undiscovered by science and how the men with guns know about it...

My explanation would be that the table mountain with dinosaurs is in the middle of the Colombian jungle and in FARC territory so that's why it hasn't been discovered by science. I think that's perfectly plausible since a mountain in Mozambique remainded undiscovered until 2005 due to the civil war over there.

Hmm...an explanation:
Well in my story Joe talk to Lara from a top secret file called the Lost Land.

A t.rex?i think that if we are in S-america some S-american dino would be better.

Ha! And I thought that I was the biggest dino nerd here! :D Looks like I met my match. Very well, then we've got Giganotosaurus as the heavy hitter and Carnotaurus as the middle sized one. But do you know of a South American dromaeosaur or other kind of carnivore to fill the small predator gap?

Should the species of dinosaur also be restricted to a certain era, being the time from when the Island or table mountain became evolutionary isolated from the rest of the world? I was thinking of early Cretaceous...

Alright, but while it's fun to see when a game developer has done their homework - like the shields in the King Arthur museum in Legend being the actual shields of Sir Kai and Sir Galahad and so forth, and the names on the coffins being the actual Celtic names of the characters (Myrddin instead of Merlin) - there's probably about twenty people who would notice it, and even if they were going to make a Giganotosaurus people would just call a T-rex anyway...

Yeah,that's true.But,who knows?
And in my version they are evolved too.I imagine it's looking as a mix of turok,primeval and wwd giganotosaurus.

my favorite book is still "sphere" by michael crichton. thats a book you cant put down. sure its not an old book (even when is was written over 20 years ago, if im not mistaken) but a damn good read. the movie, that has sharon stone, dustin hoffman and sam l. jackson is also not bad.

also "timeline" from the same author is an amazing book. the movie sucked on the other hand. they missed pretty much the important points that made the book a bestseller.

Okay well two more things then:

Timeline: liked that also: didn't bother about the film.

I liked both Crichtons book and the film Congo; for different reasons: the book is a very serious, humourless adventure novel: the film is the stupidest B-movie I've ever seen, but I love every moment of it! "Stop eating my sesame cake!"

21st Apr 2014, 17:13
Allright,now let's back to the topic.

A new idea came to my mind,what about if that lost indian civilization still exist?
I mean that the drug cartell use them as a slave,they fight against them,and a war began between the cartell and indians.

Jurre
21st Apr 2014, 17:25
Well obviously they have a dread fascination with the dinosaurs, thinking of them as gods and the carnivores as demons, so to stave off their wrath they're sacrificing their prettiest virgins to them. And they bang on their drums and are doing crazy dances with torches.

Having natives around shooting arrows at you also gives an exuse to find bundles of arrows everywhere; if Lara was to go up against some modern military it would be beyond odd to find ammunition for a bow :)

I like this idea alot, it harkens back to what made Lara Croft an adventurer for me as a gamer. When playing a Tomb Raider game, everything was new to me and different from fighting dinosaurs or wild tigers to exploring places Id never seen before. I think all things in a tomb raider game should be adventurous and different, the last game just used humans as enemies mostly so it wasnt very adventurous at all for a brand about an adventurer.

Id like to see Lara return to her roots that made her brand famous, fighting dinosaurs, demons, and other fantastic things. If people forgot just see the movies and look at the evil buddhist statues and other things, Id like to see that again, zombies, or werewolves there are tons of fun ideas I saw in this thread that sure are adventurous ideas!

*best idea I thought was maybe a part with a cult of ancient buddhists running around trying to rip out your heart like in Temple of doom. That would be epic.
