  1. Thanks for the offer but Nikos651 has kindly adopted all of my geocaches. It does feel very odd, and sad even, handing everything over though.
  2. Looks like I'll miss the completion of this project. In 2 weeks time I'm leaving Greece. My thanks and utmost respect for everyone who got involved, and good luck for the future. You'll be in my thoughts and Pendeli will always be in my heart. Happy caching!
  3. Ok, Sunio sounds good then. I can, but would anyone else like to place this cache? It would be good to have as many different geocachers creating these as possible. Variety is good! I must admit that I was starting to worry about the Athena cache when it took so long for the FTF to go. So hard to tell in advance the difficulty of things. I'll add hints at some point if I get too many email requests for help, but I dont want t make it too easy.
  4. Would people be happy to have the Poseidon cache placed in Sunio? It'd be 45km away from the Athena cache so not particually close. But still, not on the other side of the country either. I dont want to rush and place them, but then again, I do want to make this happen. Thoughts?
  5. Hi all, I've updated the series location map to show the current state of things.
  6. Cool! I'm happy to check or help. Please email me direct, in Greek to avoid any possible confusion if you like. Cant help you with the I18N problem though.
  7. Olympian Gods: Athena has been published. 2 down, 11 to go!
  8. Wind&Water, simply brilliant! You are the powerhouse behind this project! Love the 'Zeus' listing. Lovely little puzzle. So that everyone can enjoy solving all the puzzles can we keep spoilers in this post to a bare minimum in the future. constantino5, if you are still keen, then please please please place an Aphrodite puzzle cache in Cyprus. I think it will work perfectly. My reservation about that cache not being listed under 'Greece' on geocaching.com is not really important. I'll try and place an Athena puzzle cache close to the centre of Athens in the next few weeks. Bring it on.
  9. Sorry for not responding for a while but I've had a lot on recently. If I've understood the previous postings correctly then this follows. There is no need to have the 12 god caches solved in any specific order. On the 'Mount Olympus' page it can provide links to the 12 god caches and 12 links to GeoChecker, one for each god cache. So the page will be something like; Olympian Gods: Mount Olympus <Blah Blah Blah> <Link to Zeus> <Link to Zeus GeoChecker> <Link to Athena> <Link to Athena GeoChecker> <...> In GeoChecker it allows for a custom message when you successfully enter the correct coordinates. Get the 12 custom messages and you get the final coordinates. Something like this is the easiest; The final coordinates for Mount Olympus are: N 23 59 X, E 23 Y X = zeus + athena + ... Y = posiden + ... And the returned message for Zeus would be something like; "zeus = 42". So solve the 12 god caches, get 12 numbers and put them into the equation to get X and Y.
  10. I'm not sure what we should do about this now. The original suggestion was to have a 'master of mystery' style game. This works by having, in this case, 12 puzzle caches and 1 master cache. To solve the master cache, Mount Olympus, you have to solve the 12 puzzles and get their 12 gps coordinates. You enter these coordinates into the web page of the master cache, and this will give you the final master cache coordinate. Have a look here for an example; Master of Mystery #10 - Montréal Like I said in an earlier post we can either stick with this, or just go with 13 traditional caches instead. Or something else?
  11. I am inclined to agree with you on this. Simply from a Geocaching.com listings point of view I think it would be best if all of the caches in this series were listed as 'in Greece'. I'm not totally sure though. I quite like the idea of going there as well. As for the FTF award. I was thinking of making a 'GPS puzzle box'. Not exactly the same as the one in the blog, but something of the same concept.
  12. For the 12 cache names I was thinking; "Olympian Gods: Zeus" "Olympian Gods: Hera" etc. For the final puzzle cache that can be solved by solving the others I was thinking; "Olympian Gods: Mount Olympus" As for the puzzles though, if everyone thinks this is overly complicating things we can drop it and just have the 12 caches as traditional caches. Like some of the 6000 years caches we could have a code on the bottom of each of the 12 caches. And then the "Olympian Gods: Mount Olympus" cache can be solved by visiting the 12 and getting the codes. Or we can drop the final puzzle cache completely and just have the 12 caches as a nation wide series. I'm often accused of overly complicating things so please feel free to take the simpler route if you think its better.
  13. I didn't realize there was so much disagreement as too who the 12 gods were. Most of the sites I've looked up today include Hades, but definitely not all of them. Wikipedia lists these 12 as those most often included in the list; Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Dionysus, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus and Hermes. So if we stick with these 12 gods for the purpose of our game then we are probably as good as we can get. Does that work for everyone?
  14. No Prob. I cant write Greek, but I can read it with the help of Google Translate and a dictionary.
  15. Map of Possible Locations. Anyone can edit this map. It contains the locations we have discussed so far for the caches so that we can all get an idea of the national coverage. Οποιοσδήποτε μπορεί να επεξεργαστεί αυτόν τον χάρτη. Περιέχει τις θέσεις που έχουμε συζητήσει μέχρι στιγμής για τα caches, ώστε να μπορούμε να πάρουμε όλοι μια ιδέα για την κάλυψη της χώρας.
  16. It would be better yes. But for me its either in english or not at all I'm afraid. I havnt managed to learn Greek yet! Believe me when I say that I regret this. If you think the concept is worth persuing and that there would be more interest if it was discussed and proposed in Greek then please do so. Whatever is best for the community.
  17. I think it would be amazing if you would create those two caches! Zeus and Artemis. Thank you. Language puzzles, number puzzles, logic problems, word search, difficult, easy, riddles, crossword type clues, general quiz questions, etc, etc, etc. The more variety in the puzzles we chose the better. My puzzle caches are usually mathamatical, electrical and visual because thats my background. Words are not my thing. If you can bring language to the party then that would be perfect! So 10 more gods remaining. Any takers?
  18. Whats needed will be 12 seperate puzzle caches. One cache for each Olympian god; Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Hera, Aris, Athena, Apollo, Aphrodite, Hermes, Artemis, Hephaestus. You all know this stuff far better than I do so please accept my apologies. Having each cache placed in a location associated with that deity is an excellent idea, as long as they can be spread over the entire country and islands, and they dont all just end up in a few locations. My knowledge concerning this isnt good enough yet. The name of each cache should be; 'Olympian Gods: Zeus'. The puzzles can be anything you like, if its related to the god some how then great, even better. The only rule should be that it can be solved from home without visiting a specific location. The puzzles can be as hard or as easy as we descide. Using the '6000 Years' format, every listing should contain some details about the specific deity. Once we have these 12 caches created then we can create a final 'Olympian Gods: Mount Olympus' puzzle cache. I can set it up so that entering the final corrdinates of the 12 deity caches into this page will give you the final location of the 'Mount Olympus' cache. This is why its important that each deity cache can be solved without having to visit the location of the puzzle. If someone lives near 'Mount Olympus' then we could place the cache there. If not then having it in Athens to pick up the tourist trade is probably a good idea. If people would like to claim a god and choose a location we can see how many we get taken and what sort of coverage over the country. If theres enough interest then we can come up with the puzzles. I'm happy to help with all aspects of this and take on any unclaimed deities. R.
  19. Hi all. Apologies for english, but as some of you know, my greek simply isnt up to the job. I've an idea for creating a mega geocache following the same guidelines of the master of mystery geocache style; http://coord.info/GC2PZ59. The idea is multiple puzzle geocaches that can be solved individually and then have an additional geocache listing that you can solve once youve done all of the others. My 'Next Generation' cache became one such sub puzzle a few weeks ago. The idea I have is for all sub caches to be in Greece, each individual puzzle cache named after an Olympian God, with the final cache probably in Athens to allow visitors easy access. Or even better, Mount Olympus. I was wondering if people would like to volunteer to come up with puzzles and place individual caches so that we can get the 12 required sub caches placed fully accross the country and islands. If its just me setting it then they'll all end up around Athens and it will take me much longer to place and design all of the games. If anyone is interested in creating an indiviual 'god' cache then please give me a shout. Happy caching. R. If this can be done, then a Titans mega puzzle cache will follow. But thats a lot more work. Just the thought of creating a multi puzzle 'Cache of the Titans' makes me smile.
  20. I've noticed that when I do a search using the 'List newest in Region' link the generated listings do not contain the distance from my home coordinates. I'd like this added as it would save having to open each geocache seperatly just to see if it is close enough to consider hunting out. Anyone else think this would be worth adding?
