Default Setting up a treasure hunt

I am thinking of running a PvP "treasure hunt" type of event on the Survival server in the area that Exe set aside for large scale PvP. However, I would like some feedback on a few issues to help me.

The basic idea at this stage is to allow people to use warp to travel to the main bunker from outside the area. The bunker is a non-combat zone. People will be able to come and go into the area as they wish (on foot, not warping or teleporting!), but once there (with PvP on), you may attack each other and take any treasure (or other items) the dead player has. The treasure will be in multiple places in the area.

What I would like to know is:

1) What would you regard as suitable treasure for such a hunt (e.g. gold, diamond, lapis lazuli, jukebox discs, golden apples or blocks from the Nether)?

2) Given that it will be PvP, should we allow players to carry any weapons and/or armour into the area? Or should all inventories be empty?

3) Should players be allowed to carry food into the area so that they can heal injuries?

4) Should we allow construction in the pvp area during the event?

Any suggestions?

I think with all forms of combat, all players should be on an even footing at the start - so empty inventories.

* Healing - not sure...
* Loot - I think lapis, diamonds and other rarer things would be good.
* Building - don't know... you'd have to build with materials you find if you go in empty handed...

1. Not too much, but Gold, Diamond, Iron and Nether blocks.
2. Empty start but can construct weapons in game.
3. Set up some wheat farm areas around the arena.
4. Yes to construction.

Sums up my thoughts pretty well.

I don't know with the nether coming in with 1.6, nether materials won't be rare. Maybe skip those?

But even Notch says that "1.6 officially has a release date of “not soon”" (Fixing bugs, enabling nether. : The Word of Notch), and Mojang isn't known for sticking to its own plans.

Anyway, that is why I am asking you. I don't know what sort of things you would like to get a handful of that you find hard (or impossible) to find any other way.

See, you are welcome to my megre gold blocks - I could care less about it... but I had some lapis mysteriously vanish so to me, lapis is far more valuable! (how else will I make a purple castle!) .. and I only need enough diamonds to make a pick so I can mine obsidian...

But if we have a mix of what everyone wants, that would be good.
