Jezerske planine - zvezdice
Govori se, da je na Jezerskem vrhu, kjer je že od nekdaj prehod s Kranjske na Koroško, vedno stala dobro obiskana gostilna. V njej se je popotnik rad ustavil, se odžejal in kaj pojedel, če je bil preveč truden, pa tudi zaspal. Gostilničarju seveda ni šlo slabo, kar se je hitro razvedelo daleč naokoli. Pa ne le med tistimi, ki so tam našli počitek, temveč je bogastvo kot sveča vešče začelo privabljati tudi tiste, ki so razmišljali, kako bi se do njega dokopali. Veliko jih je poskušalo, toda večina se je ob tem opekla. Hud domači pes Sultan in puška gostilničarja sta marsikateremu ravbarju raztrgala hlače na riti. Dokler se podviga ni lotil divji Rebrčan, ki je bil predrzen junak, trgovcev in potnikov strah in trepet. Ta ni imel zgolj želje po lahko pridobljenem bogastvu, temveč je imel v betici tudi nekaj slame. Tako je velikokrat prišel do gostilne, se dobrikal Sultanu in mu vedno vrgel kakšen priboljšek. Ustvaril si je zaupanje, pes nanj ni več lajal, zgolj mahal je z repom, čakajoč na nov kos slastnega mesa. In res je dobil. Veliko kost. Med tem ko jo je glodal, je Rebrčan prislonil k hiši lestev, se skozi priprto okno splazil prav v spalnico gostilničarja in iz omare vzel vrečo, polno zlata in dragih kamnov. Tiho kot miška je splezal ven in hotel odpeketati.
Toda nesreča ne počiva, konj se je vznemiril, zarezgetal, Sultan je zalajal, gostilničar je že tekel s svojo puško. Rebrčan je hitro skočil na konja in oddirjal po poti pod gorami. Tako hitro, da se je pod kopiti konja kar iskrilo. Kaj se ne bi, Rebrčan je konja priganjal brez milosti, za seboj je že slišal pogon. Ko je prijahal na čistino, se je konj vzpel, vreča z zakladom se je strgala. Ropar je imel zgolj še toliko časa, da je dragocenosti pobral s tal in jih hitro skril. Dobro je označil, kam. Potem je oddrvel naprej, proti Kortam na Koroškem. Toda dlje ni prišel. Tam so ga že čakali orožniki. Strgana vreča iz gostilne je bila zadostni dokaz, sodnik ni imel težkega dela. Za dolgo je pristal v ječi, mogoče še danes pije zgolj vodo in jé plesnivi kruh. Ali pa so ga ravnokar spustili. Tega žal ne vemo. Vemo pa, da se je gostilničar razočaran odselil, skupaj s svojim psom. Nanj danes na meji spominja zgolj prazna in zapuščena gostilna. Bogastva iz vreče ni nihče več našel. Morda ga je odnesla kakšna kukavica, ko se ji je zlato na tleh naslednji dan svetilo. Ali pa je še vedno v roparjevem skrivališču? Kdo bi vedel. Mogoče pa ga najdeš prav ti?
Navodila: Za najdbo tega zaklada boste morali najti najprej zaklad Jezerske planine - Pozabljene igrače in Jezerske planine - Ankova hlapca. Prvega boste našli na Rakeževi, drugega pa na Ankovi planini. V vsakem zakladu dobite pol koordinat, ki vas bodo popeljale do točke, od koder boste lahko sledili svetlim zvezdicam. Mogoče prav tistim, ki so se zaiskrile izpod kopit konja divjega roparja. Če bo okoli vas za trenutek zgolj temna noč in ne boste videli nobene zvezdice več, le nadaljujte v smeri, v katero je pobegnil tudi ropar. Stalno se držite poti, saj tudi on verjetno konja ni pognal v strmi breg. Ko boste prispeli do roba, kjer se cesta začne spuščati proti Kortam, se vam bo resnično zaiskrilo. Toda kje je zaklad? In kaj, če se je ropar ravno vrnil ponj? Najbolje bo, da izvlečete svoj meč, ga položite med dve zvezdici in ga usmerite prav. Kajti zaklad zanesljivo ni prav daleč.
Jezersko mountain pastures - Little stars (translation by Dulsineja)
The Jezerski vrh mountain pass has been used to travel from Carniola to Carinthia since time immemorial, and in the past there used to be an inn which was always well visited. Many travellers would stop there to have a drink or something to eat, and also to sleep the night if they were tired. The owner was making a nice living with this business, which was no secret to those living in the area and beyond. His inn did not attract only the travellers seeking for a good night's rest, but also those who were intent on gaining some of his riches - just like the bugs are attracted to light. Many had tried to rob the owner, but most of them got caught at it. The owner's rifle and his dog Sultan kicked the ass of many who tried - until a wild man called Rebrčan tried to seize his wealth. He was as bold as brass, and was feared by merchants and travellers alike. He had a hunger for easy money, and he was also clever. Thus he started coming often into the inn and built a confident relation with Sultan by throwing him a little extra every time he came there. The dog would not bark at him anymore, instead, it would be just wagging its tail and waiting for another piece of meat or a bone. Soon the dog got an extra again. A giant bone. While the dog was gnawing on the bone, Rebrčan leant a ladder against the wall and climbed through an open window right into the owner's bedroom. He grabbed a bag full of gold and precious stones that he found in the wardrobe. He slipped out of the house quickly and as silently as a mouse, and was about to make off with his ill-gotten gains.
But, to the thief's misfortune, the horse got upset and neighed. Sultan started barking and the inn's owner, with a rifle in his hand, was after the thief only moments later. Rebrčan swiftly mounted his horse and fled into the forest under the mountain tops. He got his horse to run its fastest so that the sparks from the horse's hoofs flew like fire. Rebrčan was forcing his horse without mercy as he heard the noise of his pursuers. Arriving to a clearing, the horse reared up and the bag with the stolen treasure was ripped open. The thief had just enough time to gather and hide the precious objects quickly. He marked the hiding place well and rushed further towards Korte, Carinthia. He did not get any further as he was captured by the authorities. The torn bag from the inn was enough evidence for the judge, and Rebrčan was thrown in a jail for a long time. Maybe he drinks water and eats mouldy bread even today. Or maybe, he has just been let out to freedom. There's no way of knowing it. What we do know is that the owner of the inn was so dismayed that he moved away, taking Sultan with him. The only remnant today is the abandoned inn. No one has ever found the treasure from the stolen bag. Maybe the glittering gold was taken by a cuckoo the day after the thief's escape attent. Or is it still in the hiding place? Who knows. Maybe you are the one to find it.
Instructions: To find this cache you will first have to find two other caches: first, Jezerske planine - Pozabljene igrače (Jezersko mountain pastures - Forgotten toys), and second, Jezerske planine - Ankova hlapca (Jezersko mountain pastures - Ank's farmhands). The first cache is located at the Rakež mountain pasture (Rakeževa planina) while the second cache is at the Ank mountain pasture (Ankova planina). In each of them you will find half of the coordinates for the starting point of this cache. From there onwards, you will be lead by tiny stars (spoke reflectors) - perhaps the shining spots are the sparks coming from the horse's hoofs from the story. If you are surrounded by total darkness for a little while, just continue walking in the direction where the robber fled. Stay on the dirt road - the robber also probably didn't go uphill with his horse! When you reach the point where the dirtroad starts going down towards Korte (Trögern), you will suddenly see lots of stars. But where is the cache? And what if the robber has just returned to get it? You will fare best if you grab you sword, put it between two stars and point it correctly. Indeed, the cache is not very far away.
