Geocache Description:


SLO:

Bili so mračni časi. Preprosto ljudstvo je živelo v stalnem strahu pred grozečim zmajem Azoragogom, ki je ustrahoval njihovo vas. Njegov bes ni prizanašal niti stavbam, niti ubogim ljudem. Ko je zavohal zlato, je bil še toliko bolj nevaren – da ga je dobil v svoje kremplje, je bil pripravljen požgati hiše in okrutno pobiti nedolžne ljudi.

Mnogi vitezi so prihajali, da bi s svojim junaštvom in bojnimi veščinami premagali strašno zver, toda vsakič se je končalo na isti način: o njih se je izgubila vsaka sled, Azoragog pa se je le še bolj razbesnel in se znova znesel nad vaščani. Mnogi so zato pobegnili in šli iskat življenjsko srečo v čim bolj oddaljene pokrajine tiste dežele.

Živel pa je tam ob robu gozda nek mladenič, ki je bil drugačen od ostalih ljudi. Njegova drugačnost je bila takoj opazna, saj je bil temne polti. Šušljalo se je, da je njegova družina prišla onkraj velike vode, a nihče ni poznal podrobnejših okoliščin. Mladenič, ki so ga poznali pod skrivnostnim imenom Morien, je namreč bil najhujša žrtev grozečega zmaja: ko se je še kot majhen otrok priselil v vas, je nek vitez pravkar z velikim pompom odhajal izzival letečo pošast. Ni treba omenjati, kakšen je bil izkupiček njegovega bahanja: vitez je izginil – najverjetneje je končal v zmajevih čeljustih – zverina pa se je nato unesla nad prvo kajžico, ki ji je prišla na pot; in to je bila žal prav tista, v kateri je živela Morienova družina...

Še dandanes ljudje pravzaprav niso doumeli čudeža, po katerem je ubogi otrok edini preživel ognjeno tragedijo tiste noči. Znano je le to, da je nekako prišel do hiše revne vdove, ki je živela nedaleč stran. Ker se ji je otrok v dno duše zasmilil, se je odločila, da bo skrbela zanj, čeprav se je tudi sama le stežka preživljala.

Leta so minevala in strah ljudi pred zmajem je bil vse večji. Naraščala pa je tudi Morienova odločnost, da bo nekoč prav on tisti, ki bo ugnal grozečega nestvora in tako maščeval smrt svoje družine. Že zelo zgodaj po tisti tragediji se je v skritem zavetju gozda uril bojnih veščin – a žal le z lesenim mečem, saj pravega ni imel od kod vzeti. Lahko je le sanjaril o tem, da bi bil pravi vitez, da bi nekoč tudi on lahko izzval strašnega zmaja.Toda to mu ni vzelo poguma in srčnosti, da ne bi bil odločen izpolniti svojega cilja, čeprav še ni vedel, kako.

Ko se je nekoč pod večer odpravljal v gozd (kar je bilo sicer v očeh sovaščanov sila nespametno početje), je prišel do zelo nenavadnega odkritja: zmaj je na poti do svojega brloga puščal sledi! Iskre njegovega ognja so se zažrle v debla dreves in so bile podnevi nevidne, ponoči pa so zažarele z delčkom svojega modrikastega sijaja in mu kazale pot. Odločil se je, da je napočil čas. Pogumno je zakorakal na pot, ki so mu jo v soju svetilke kazale svetleče iskrice...

Naloga za na pot: zmajevo ime pretvori v številčno vrednost (npr. Morien = M+o+r+i+e+n = 13 + 15 + 18 + 9 + 5 + 14 = 74). Dobil boš vrednost neznanke q. Zapiši so jo v beležko in jo vzemi s seboj; to vajo bo na terenu potrebno še večkrat ponoviti, zato priporočam aplikacijo GCC, ki ti bo tudi sicer prišla močno prav.


ENG:

Those were really dark times. Simple folk lived in constant fear of a horrible dragon Azoragog who intimidated their village. No building or poor folk were safe from his rage. He was even more dangerous once he smelled gold and he was willing to burn down houses and brutally kill innocent people just to get a hang of it.

A lot of knights came to defeat the horrible beast with their bravery and battle skills but the story always ended the same: every trace of a single knight was lost and Azoragog grew even more angry with people from the village. That is why lots of them escaped from that village and went as far away as possible to find a better place to live.

Near by the forest edge lived a young lad that was different from other folk. You could spot his difference immediately due to his dark skin. The rumour said his family had come from the other side of the big water, but no one knew for sure. The lad known by mysterious name Morien was the ultimate victim of the terrible dragon: when he moved to the village only as a kid, there was a knight just about to challenge the flying monster. There's no need to mention the outcome of his boasting: he disappeared – most likely in the dragon's jaws – but the beast came and raged on the first hut that came on its path; unfortunately it was the hut where Morien's family lived in... 

Until now people haven't manage to comprehend the miracle by which the poor kid survived that night's tragedy. The one thing known for sure was the fact that he somehow came to the poor widow's house that lived not far away. She felt very sorry for the miserable orphan so she decided to take care of him despite the fact that she was very poor herself.

Years passed by and people dreaded the dragon more and more. But Morien was getting more determined every day to be the one to defeat the terrible monster and avenge the death of his family. Soon after that tragedy he was regularly going to the safe hideout in the forrest where he practised martial arts with a wooden sword – that was his only option because he could not afford the real one. He could only dream of being a real knight and being able to defeat the dreadful dragon. But this dreaming did not diminish his courage and valour by which he was determined to fulfil his goal despite not knowing yet how.

One evening as he was about to go to the forest (a very unreasonable deed as seen by the village folk) he discovered something quite unusual: the dragon left markings on the way to its lair! The sparks of its fire were burned in tree trunks – invisible during the day but sparkling with tiny bluish light during the night and it was possible to follow the trail. Morien decided it was time. He bravely stepped on the path to follow the shiny sparks in the light of his torch...

Task before you go:  turn the dragon's name to the numeric value (example: Morien = M+o+r+i+e+n = 13 + 15 + 18 + 9 + 5 + 14 = 74). You will get the value q. Write it in your notebook and take it with you; you will have to repeat this task several time while searching. Therefore I recommend the GCC application on your phone – you will find it rather applicable.


Navodila in potrebščine za iskanje zaklada:

To je 6-stopenjski multi zaklad. Njegova posebnost je, da je nočni – zato seveda potrebujete svetilko, morda pa tudi rezervne baterije ne bodo odveč. Najbolje se obnese naglavna LED svetilka z usmerjenim snopom. Na vsaki stopnji boste sledili modrim odsevnikom. Ko boste videli drevo z dvema odsevnikoma, je vmesnik tiste stopnje oddaljen največ meter od tega drevesa. Prosim, da iz vmesnikov ničesar ne jemljete, ampak vsako stopnjo zapustite natanko tako kot ste jo našli!

Na poti iskanja boste prehodili kakšne 3 kilometre. Teren sicer ni pretirano zahteven, mestoma pa lahko resno nadlogo predstavljata trnje in blato, zato priporočam dobro obutev. 


Some info for finding this cache:

This is a 6-stage multicache. It's also a night cache – therefore you will need a headlamp and some spare batteries might also come in need. On each stage you will follow the trail of blue reflectors. Once you'll see the tree with two reflectors, you've reached the end of the stage and the stage container is not more than a meter away from that tree. Please do not take anything out of any stage container. Leave everything exactly as you have found!

You will walk aproximatelly 3 kilometers during the search. The terrain is not very difficult, but some thorns and mud can be a problem, so I recommend good hiking shoes.
