Geocache Description:





2038, the War of the Worlds is at its peak.


The humankind has been terribly affected by a virus used by an awful enemy which came from another galaxy - The Zounes.


The United Special Intelligence Service (USIS) created in 2029 to find information about the Zounes has just published the following reference :


"Our special agents have located accurately Zounes Head Quarter. It is situated in the North-East of the France near the village of Hestroff. Be careful, this place is extremely dangerous because of attendance of hundreds Zounes warriors".


Unfortunately, during the last stage of the mission our two special agents has been captured and brutally killed.


Just before been taken by the enemy, they sent the following message :



" We infiltrated the landmark. We found and stolen the antidote against the virus. During the escape we triggered alarms. We will probably be captured and executed. We have hidden the antidote near the exit hatch of the sub-field. Sorry ..." 


Since this operation Zounes are on alert and strengthened bunker security.


The USIS just send you the following information:


"We need you!


You are our last special agent.


You need to find the antidote before the Zounes.


Your mission:


- Infiltrating the Rothenberg hill


- Taking care to not be captured


- Trying to find the antidote near the exit hatch of the sub-field. Attention, there are a lot of Zounes near the bunker! The place is very dangerous.


- Taking care during your search of local and natural hazards.


- Escaping quickly!


All the hopes of the humankind are in you hands! Do not disappoint us, you are our last chance.


Last Information : We don't know exactly were the antidote has been hidden. Maybe 15 meters arround near the exit hatch of the sub-field ."




Warning : The cache is located near several bunkers. If you decide to enter, it will be at your own risk. The visit of such structures requires special equipment (ropes, harnesses, helmets, ...). Under no circumstances I will be liable for any incident. I also alert you on the nature of the land on which the cache is located. It can be dangerous because of the presence of deep wells and sharp/edge objects which can cause serious injury. Be very careful!

Avertissement : La cache est localisée près de plusieurs bunkers. Si vous décidez d'y pénétrer, cela sera à vos propres risques et périls. La visite de tels ouvrages nécessite des équipements spéciaux (cordes, harnais de sécurité, casque,...)- En aucun cas je pourrai être tenu responsable de tout incident. J'attire aussi l'attention sur la nature du terrain sur lequel la cache est située. Ce dernier peut être dangereux du fait de la présence de puits profonds et d'objets métaliques pointus et coupants pouvant provoquer des blessures grâves. Soyez très prudents !
