Found it ~windknot~ found Necropolis of Britannia Manor III

Saturday, October 12, 2013Texas

What a great geocache! The amount of detail and effort that went into this is truly impressive. Due to a long day in San Marcos at Bobcat Day and shopping at the outlet store, I didn't get started on this until much later than I wanted to. By the time I got to the stone cutter it was already 4:30. The first few clues were easy enough but I got stuck at one point in chapter two and needed a PAF to get out of the guardian's resting place (thanks Larry!).

When I reached the next location, I was greeted by a sign that informed me that the glorious lagoon closed at 5:00. I thought that my quest had come to an unfortunate end but I read through the special instructions and realized that I could probably proceed without this information, so proceed I did. The next two stops went welll. Because I was losing daylight I made a difficult decision to forego the exotic benchmark.

When I got to ground zero I realized that another special instruction was needed and I found the correct path to finish my quest. I greeted a family that were making a return journey as I descended into the gruesome scene that awaited me. As I reached the final destination I heard the sounds of wolves gathering on the hill. I hope that the family that I passed survived; they seemed like nice people.

The sun had set by now and light was fading fast but I still didn't have the entire cipher needed to enter the tower. I tried a few random guesses and couldn't gain access. After reading through the journal again, I realized that I already had the answer that I needed, I just needed to look for it. I entered the new code into the access pad and was granted passage to the inner sanctum where many treasures awaited. There were not as many travelers inside as I expected but I made note of those that I did find, signed the log and decided to make my departure from this evil place before the day's light was entirely extinguished.

Thanks for the wonderful experience!

infoA Mystery Cache is the “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.
