Once you have all of the clues, follow these steps to discover the coordinates for the cache:

1) Put the clues in order, and then concatenate them into one long string with no spaces.

2) Encrypt the result from step 1 using a Railfence cipher such that the last three characters of the ciphertext are "aaa"

3) Use the result from step 2 to decode this:

kgmnlojgmhnmfinxhfvztkesmwhibzlzlwefzxooxlibhsicbxhezdwrvxiecagf

(This "riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma" is an attempt to thwart solution of the puzzle without finding the Mana caches, and should be somewhat straightforward once you have all the clues...but feel free to solve it as you like.)

Alternatively, put the clues in order (hint: look at first letter of clue) and type them into this certitude:


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
Prizes: several copies of the card Coalition Victory have been claimed from the cache. Currently there are 2 I think.

The difficulty rating incorporates the requirement of having to solve the six clue cache puzzles in the series. Terrain rating is for this cache hide only.

I am happy to confirm coordinates via email.
