”He knew, Vin ... The Lord Ruler. He suspected that this day would come - a day when the mists returned and food would be scarce. So, he prepared these supply depots.—Elend on the storage caverns
The storage caverns are five caches of supplies, left behind by the Lord Ruler, and hidden in caverns beneath certain cities in the Final Empire. Each one contains a metal plate giving the location of the next cavern, and provides some advice or information from the Lord Ruler. Every cache contains a large supply of food and grain, but each one also has its own specialty.
Each cavern is in a rocky area, near metal mines, beneath a building of the Steel Ministry. The metal underground shields the caches from Ruin, to prevent him from discovering them.
All caches are in or near the Central Dominance, with Luthadel's cavern in the center and the other four forming a box around it.
The first cavern is discovered beneath Luthadel, hidden within Kredik Shaw. Like all caches, it contains many shelves of canned food. A large metal plaque hangs on the wall, depicting a map of the Final Empire with a circle around Statlin City, the location of the next storage cavern. A long tunnel leads from the storage cavern to a smaller room which holds the Well of Ascension.
”Kredik Shaw isn’t simply a palace, but a capstone. Built to hide something. This.
The third cavern lies in Urteau. Information on electrum can be found here. This cache holds a massive amount of water which used to fill Urteau's canals, and is filtered naturally by layers of rock.
Vetitan is home to the fourth cavern. Its metal plate reveals the existence of malatium, that koloss and kandra can be controlled by using strong emotional Allomancy, and that only one's thoughts are safe from Ruin.
The fifth and last cavern is situated in Fadrex City. Notably, no useful information is left here, besides the Lord Ruler's words "I have hidden his body well", referring to the atium, Ruin's godmetal, that is stored in the Trustwarren.
