Geocache Description:

The end of the Time Crystal Hunt! Enter the six symbols you have collected from the Time Crystals you have discovered and save the universe. If you have solved all of Professor Zamen's puzzles then you will be able to access the Time Portal. Please do not attempt this cache at night.


The Guardians of Time have a problem. A micro-fracture in the Canvas of Eternity has appeared. Time is slipping away, quite literally, and someone needs to enter the Time Crystal Portal (GC5M54B) to make repairs. But there is a problem. Nobody has accessed the Time Crystal Portal for centuries and its location has been forgotten. All that remains is a remote console to the portal in the Hall of Forever. It displays an array of meaningless symbols and all that the Guardians know is that when the correct six symbols are selected on the console then the location of the Time Crystal Portal will be revealed.

Many cycles ago, there was a man who knew all of the secrets of Time. However, he has long since gone to the great egg-timer in the sky, but apparently he fabricated six Time Crystals (each embossed with one of the symbols to activate the Time Crystal Portal) and securely deposited them in time-resistant boxes around the Herts-Beds border. Each powerful crystal can never be in close proximity with another for fear of disrupting the fragile time canvas even further. However, if a brave Time Scout was prepared to venture forth to discover the six symbols emblazoned on these crystals and returned in one piece to activate the Time Crystal Portal then all of humanity would be indebted to them for all eternity.

Fortunately, recent intelligence has revealed that Professor Zamen of the University of Flux, has gained knowledge of the location of the six Time Crystals. He will not give up this infomation easily, but has set a series of puzzles to lead any intrepid Time Scout who earnestly seeks the crystals to their hiding spot.


The Cache

Professor Zamen greets you in the Hall of Forever. "Welcome to the most sacred place in the whole of Time. Over there you can see the remote console for the Time Crystal Portal. If you have discovered the six Time Crystals using the clues I gave you then go ahead and key the symbols from those crystals into the console. Let's hope you have them correct. Good Luck!"

You can access the remote console with this link.

If you have not yet collected all of the Time Crystals then seek them out at the following caches:
Time Crystal 1: Invisibunny Infestation
Time Crystal 2: Don't Come Alone!
Time Crystal 3: A Nutty Problem
Time Crystal 4: Roll Up
Time Crystal 5: Photo Shoot
Time Crystal 6: The Briefcase Conundrum

"Every good Time Scout keeps a tidy record of their adventures. Why not use this handy notebook 'zine' to track your progress?"
