Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is one of a series of five caches inspired by Star Wars film saga. Each cache challenges you in a spirit of the Trials of Knighthood in the Old Jedi Order. To complete the trials you have to find and log all five caches, last one being a mystery cache the Trial of Insight. Each cache container includes a hint which is essential for you when solving the mystery. Hint is attached to the logbook, do not remove it nor take it with you!

In Star Wars passing the trials was prerequisite to all Jedi Padawans in order to achieve Jedi Knighthood. The trials were administered by the Jedi High Council to any Padawan they deemed worthy of becoming a Jedi. The five trials were the Trial of Skill, the Trial of Courage, the Trial of the Flesh, the Trial of the Spirit and the Trial of Insight.

Your trials will be guided by Grand Master Yoda, so listen carefully to his words of advice.

Trial of Skill

The Trial of Skill was one of the oldest trials in the old Jedi Order. The test consisted of numerous displays of lightsaber technique and a review of the potential Knight's ability to avoid distraction through self-discipline.

Your test will consist of three displays of cacher's lightsaber (aka flashlight) knowhow PLUS the final cache location. Note that your lightsaber must be an UV one and that you will need it only AFTER you found what you were looking for in all the stages! You will also be tested of your capability to use your lighsaber without causing distraction among muggles.

Yoda's words of advice: "Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter".
