Clues

“We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.”

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."

Two quotes from arguably one of the finest writers ever to have lived, and my favorite author, H.P. Lovecraft. If you're not familiar with his work I HIGHLY recommend you read some of his stories. Stephen King called him "The twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." That's saying a lot from someone like Stephen King.

It's only fitting that his likeness should be found in a cemetery. I Implore you to find this one at night, in true Lovecraftian fashion. It's in the middle of nowhere, so I wouldn't worry about others being around you, even the dead ones you'll be among.

Normally a mystery box won't include the name of the place you're looking for. This one does, finding the place is a whole other story. It might take you a little searching, but I think you'll find it relatively easy.

You're looking for MGRANE NOUIN CEMETARY. Remember also, DO THIS AT NIGHT, you'll have way more fun : )

At the Cemetery go in the gate and find the True Man. Once you've found him go to the opposite side of the headstone and go 42 steps to the left. Go between the two and around the back of the right one. Get on your stomach and crawl, Army style, to the base. Root around there while on your stomach to find the Master, he'll be waiting for you. As always, re-hide BETTER than when you found it. Use plenty of forest detritus and clear out the stuff that's fallen into the spot the box was resting in before re-hiding it.

For your enjoyment read some of his stories online before you head out to find this box, it'll give you something to think about when you're in the middle of nowhere, alone, in the dark.
