Geocache Description:


Criffree and FamilieRyan find their 500th puzzle cache! Wow! That's quite an accomplishment! It's a good thing they both live over here in Katy so that they can get their fill of puzzle caches...or is it the other way around, there are a bunch of puzzle caches in Katy because they are puzzle creating freaks as well...hmmm. Oh well, it doesn't matter, what does matter is this prolific duo has reached this amazing milestone! In honor of this most fantastic feat, the Westside FTF Crew has placed this cache in tribute to our very good friends, Criffree & FamilieRyan! Enjoy it you two and may you both find 500 more!

Now on to the puzzle...

Somewhere in the distant future, two treasure hunters, Jacques Criffeau & Sir Walter Ryan were looking for some magical artifacts deep inside a long forgotten cave. They were examining the walls with great detail, when they discovered what appeared to be a rock jutting out from the wall. Being quite inquisitive, Jacques Criffeau pushed on the rock and suddenly the whole cave began to rumble! Jacques and Sir Walter backed away from the wall and watched in awe as a huge stone door swiveled inward. Suddenly everything was quite and still and the dust began settling to the floor. They stood and strained to hear anything at all, but there was nothing. Cautiously, they crept up to the door and peered inside. The room was empty but for two stone sarcophagi in the center of the room. They were a little uneasy when they entered the room but it seemed safe enough. Their flashlights fell onto a carving on the back wall. It read:

As they proceeded toward the two stone coffers, they could make out plaques placed at the head of each tomb. Each plaque contained some text, followed by some strange symbols.

The first plaque read:

The second plaque read:

Jacques Criffeau and Sir Walter Ryan were never able to find the difference in the clues to help them locate the treasure. Can you?

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
