I'm curious to see if other players have the same experience as me, in the context of Geocaching.

My pirate, which has been around for 10 years, hasn't spent very much time in and around:

a. the jungle west of Dalpok.
b. the jungle and grasslands far north of Wiksik.
c. the jungle north of the mountain (I understand there is a crate on the beach there with resources but I've never found it because I've never really been out there);
d. the dunes west of Durham.

I assume rightly or wrongly that this is the same for most players, and so I will be making geocaches in those areas.

Mouse - I'm not sure that you can't dig in the grove. I think you use your shovel by clicking on the shovel item button and it digs for you. Same applies for the snow.


I've spent most of my time along the south coast in outsider towns or on the mountain. Between killing shargles, bears, spiders, rats, and goats to get my badges, I think I've spent well over a year on the mountain! Still working on my golden goat.
Early on, I systematically explored all the land area, and just lately I've been swimming all around the island to get my explorer's badge. Almost there!

For the most part I put my caches in places I thought people don't normally go, to get them to explore far off spots. A couple on the mountain path, just because I couldn't dig in the grove. There was no "dig a hole" button, I'll try clicking on the shovel next time I'm there. That was actually the first spot I thought of when this geocaching thing was proposed.

I saw two caches nearby Durham's dunes. It's a great place to hunt turtles. I've seen the crate a couple times, it's where Punan Bah and the other shartak alcoholics hang out. Haven't explored a or b much. I've been putting them all over the map, but rarely near villages, roads, or islands. I try to find a bare spot in deep jungle to plant one.

I have plenty of skulls if you guys want to stop by and refill. If you want to meet at wiksik in a couple days I can give you 15 apiece, and still have another 15 leftover. 

I added your last one, mouse.

Thanks! Happens I just picked up the faith skill with a couple chars, but assumed it was pretty much for roleplay.

I've put caches just about everywhere I initially intended, so for my part, I'll be slowing down considerably. I'd wanted to put one in the apple grove in the sacred space, but you can't dig there. And Tathers beat me to Unity Island.

I had an idea for a different type of cache, and I'm near a good place to put it, though I am almost out of driftwood and skulls so gonna have to resupply after that.

This may be my last one for a while. And it's a fitting compliment to the first one I created.


“Sunrise Geocache -70.05?,+26.38? Take some, leave some. Have a beautiful day!”

I say we keep going. Perhaps once we reach 100 we consolidate the list, and send it to Simon so as to alert players?

I've run out of driftwood and presently resupplying otherwise, but I'll be back onto it soon.

a. Go to Sacred Space
b. Chant while on a pillar square (the things that look like little whirlwinds located in the snow). Keep chanting until the ancestors are pleased.
c. Do that at each of the pillars scattered around the temple.
d. This unlocks the Faith skill.
e. Level up until you get the Faith skill.
f. This then enables you to use the portals. You'll see that they light up blue if you have the Faith skill.
g. Take a portal from wherever and you'll end up at Sacred Space. This costs 25 AP points so make sure you have enough so that you don't get stuck at the portals in Sacred Space. Otherwise you might get predated upon.
h. Enter a portal and end up at a random portal destination - sometimes a town, sometimes crazy places like Fort Creedy or the crab claw swamp. As far as I know you have no control over where you end up.

Numerous supply caches around the portals on the mountain, too. I gather one related character buries stuff there, another related character picks it up.

I still don't understand how the portals work. It's a shartak mystery.

Well that's inconsiderate of Santa. He was supposed to pack up and leave back at the beginning of January!

OK, I've added the last three, and included a new one of mine: “Geocache ~ [-70.29?,+26.49?] ~ The Last Remains of Hassalac Chaar ~ Take Something ~ Leave Something”

That takes us to 29. Is there a point at which we should stop making them, at least on a regular basis, and will we reach that point soon?
