Geocache Description:

Three Caches for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of wood and stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie,
One cache to rule them all, one cache to find them,
One cache to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The Dark Lord Gottarun gave nine caches to man; seven to the dwarves; and three to the elves. These 19 Caches of Power were lost over the ages, but their legend draws many to seek them.

Lord Gottarun also created The One Cache to rule over all the Caches of Power. All those who were drawn to seek the Caches of Power were also inexorably drawn to seek The One.

It is only after you find the 19 Caches of Power that you will have the power you need to seek The One. The journey will be far; the search will be long; the challenge will be great. Only by succeeding will you earn your place among the Fellowship of the Cache.


Important Notes:

In each Cache of Power you will find a letter and a two-digit number, such as “A72.” Keep track of the NUMBER in each cache if you intend to seek The One Cache.

Here is a list of the 19 Caches of Power and The One Cache. The names given to the caches of Men and Dwarves mean nothing to their power or how you will find them. However, knowing whether you are seeking a cache of Men, Dwarves, or Elves will help in your search.
