The game is simple: One user asks a question and another one tries to answer it. Then another ask another one and so on...

Let me start: How old was Lara when the plane crashed in Nepal?

How old is Lara now?

Since this question hasn't been answered yet and Croft91 didn't post one:
28 ?? Well, who cares, she's eternal :D

Where did Lara go with Werner von Croy on their first journey together, when she was young?? (Boring level though, hint hint ;) )

How old is Lara now?
She turned 40 on Feb 14th this year.

Where did Lara go with Werner von Croy on their first journey together?
Cambodia/Angkor Wat (I think). But I wouldn't have said it was their first journey together though.

Cambodia is correct yes. I thought it was their first journey, hmmmmmmm, :confused: :scratch:

I've never heard it referred to (in the games or elsewhere) that Lara & Von Croy's escapade in Cambodia was their first outing together. If it was, it was a bit foolhardy of Von Croy to take some kid with him.

It is beans and toast. Very old profile of Lara that can be found in one of the old gaming magazines. Probably dates back to like 97 or 98, I believe.

I've had it before. It's not bad if you like baked beans. And toast.

You are of course correct so I guess you set the next question.

TR_genius
4th Oct 2008, 21:24
She reads an article when she was a teenager about Von Croy heading to Cambodia on an archaeological quest, she persuaded her parents to allow her to accompany him and her parents pay him. She then will have met him to travel to Cambodia but not sure because it doesn't mention that;)

If your asking about the game it was "Under unkown circumstances" that he is no longer around

If you mean the film:
He was murdered by Powell on the 15th. "Lost but never forgotten"

Isn't the answer that Toby Guard just randomly thought her up as a woman? Actualy it could be because no one had ever tried it before, all the hero's of the games created in the late 80's, ealry 90's were men. I'm not sure the answer's right but it's worth a try lol

I can't recall his name from the documentary (I think it was JH Smith) who stated...

"...it's just bloody Indiana Jones."

That's why they changed the main character into a woman.

Q: In TR2 were the monks in the temple friend or foe?

If you shot at them by accident they would become foe, but if you left them alone they would not cause Laura any harm.

A. What is Lara main mode of transportation in TR Legend?

Mr.Croft
28th Oct 2008, 14:44
The main mode of transportation in TR legend I believe is the Motorcycle. That or her own two feet. :]

Yes, the game creators decided to enlist monks as Neutral, only attacking when attacked.
And another thing for the other replies, when they decided the character of Tomb raider was to be a girl, they looked in the phone book to find Lara's last name, and found Croft.
No joke.

In the first level of Tomb raider 2, (The great wall) there is one textured slant, rather untextured. Can you tell me where that location is? Hint: You'll have to do a lot of jumping around the whole room, seriously! It's close by the part where Lara receives her first Key! Good luck! :]

Bonus: Can you tell me where there is an untextured tile in the Ice Palace level of Tomb raider 2? Hint: It's after you melt the ice and get the Gong in the water and kill around 3+ Yeti's on the land, you'll need a flare. Again, good luck :D

brianthedog
28th Oct 2008, 16:29
Man, I had no idea Lara could climb up there!! Well, there are 3 let's say blocks that are untextured.

They are on the left of the second "house". To reach it, you have to start climbing from the bushes that are on the line that you take the first key, on the way out.

LOL, this makes no sense.:nut: :lmao: I have a snapshot, but how can I post it here so I can prove that I found them??:confused:

When did Lara start raiding? (how old?)

A: well, she was born on February 14th, 1968 so if you're only counting from TR1 and not TRC TR last revelation and AoD, then in 1996, she was 28 years old, because right now she is 40 (unbelievable she looks like she's 20!). But if you ARE counting TRC, TRLR, and AoD, then...since it happened before the events of TR1....then she was about 24 or 25 years old when she started "Tomb Raiding". Before that she wouldn't have been able to raid tombs (yet!) because she was at Swiss Finishing School (college). Sooooo....I hope that answers this question! :nut:
ohhh, and I almost forgot the next question:

Q: hmmm...what's a good one.......umm, what education/school did Lara have when she was 10 years old??

trjunepearl
28th Oct 2008, 18:26

Lara was 8 years old when she and her mother crashed in Nepal, and 10 years later, that's when her father died as well (just for the record :nut: )

What was Lara's name, before they finally decided to name her "Lara"?

That's a tough one!

Yea, Love4LaraC was right. Her name was originally supposed to be Laura Cruz, according to the director of the games back in 2001 when Tomb Raider the movie came out. They changed it to Lara Croft because Laura Cruz sounded too American, and they loved the aspect of their British nationality or something so they decided on Lara Croft (and boy am I glad they did!!) :rasp: .

trjunepearl
28th Oct 2008, 18:43
How died Richard Croft?

Well....it doesn't say in any of the games, but in the movie he was shot in the head by Powell, they thought he was "missing in the field" but Lara uncovers that that is not the case. That's the only answer to that question I've heard, I don't know if that's really it though :rasp: . ooh--and just for the heck of it--Lara was 18 years old when Richard died, and I think it was on May 15th or somethin. yeah...... :nut:

Don't worry I know what you are talking about and you are correct haha!
The bonus is an untextured tile by a corner where it's just pitch black, it's a split room, on the left side in a corner, hard to explain but you did a good job at finding the first one! :]
