Geocache Description:



This is the last cache of a five cache series inspired by Star Wars film saga. Each cache challenges you in a spirit of the Trials of Knighthood in the Old Jedi Order. In order to complete the trials you have to find and log all five caches, this one being the last one. Each of the four previous caches includes a hint which will be essential for you when solving this mystery.

In Star Wars passing the trials was prerequisite to all Jedi Padawans in order to archieve 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 also known as the Trial of Knowledge.

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


Trial of Insight

The Trial of Insight, also known as Trial of Knowledge, was the last test offered as part of the Trials of Knighthood. This test helped a Jedi to see what was really in front of their eyes through use of the Force. Seeing through illusion, evaluating an individual's true persona, and unveiling lies were essential to a successful mission of a Jedi.

Your Trial of Insight tests your knowledge of Star Wars. From each previous cache of this series, you have gained a hint essential for you in order to solve the riddles below. But the hint itself is not enough, other insight is needed too. Good luck!
