This will be a hunt for buried treasure in the Wild West area on Frontier. I will hide treasure in a couple of places and provide crude treasure maps on this forum. The idea will be for everyone participating to start at Piedra Roja with empty inventories and no armour. People can use armour etc from any secret bases in the Wild West but they have to get there during the event. If the treasure is found, it can be taken anywhere on Frontier once the player has returned to Piedra Roja. Otherwise, normal Wild West rules are followed, ie. pvp combat is allowed and teleportation is bad play. If killed, a player can rejoin the hunt from any spawnpoint. Suicide or euthanasia is not allowed (so people don't "teleport" to secret bases).

Oh, and I might set some boobytraps just to make things more interesting.

I will have to declare the Wild West out of bounds for an hour or so before the event so I can set up. The maps will hopefully prevent too much strip mining. There will be hints that something might be underground, e.g. changes in the terrain blocks on the surface. I won't hide things too far underground. If you reach bedrock, you have gone too deep

The Wild West is still out-of-bounds til the event starts but you can try and decipher the treasure maps. There is three boxes of treasure containing various items, including resources that are not available in Frontier or the Wild West.

The maps show the area that the treasure is in. It is only 3-5 blocks below the surface. Each location is marked by an item on the surface that is out-of-place. However, a few traps have been placed in the same areas to making things harder.

This is a reference map of the Wild West:

Delayed till 2:30 because no-one is turning up. You don't want me to just leave the treasure there for anyone to find, do you?

Thanks to those who came. We had HenriDeacon, Sanzhin, Obsi, Blossom and Deep digging for gold. Obsi found two chests and Henri and Sanzhin found another. Henri also found one of my traps, but activated it from a safe distance to not blow himself up.

The treasures included gold, diamond, cobwebs, cocoa beans and xp bottles and other items. The first treasure was under an endstone in a sandy beach. The second chest was hidden under a jungle tree in a snowy forest. The third chest was under a soulsand in a forest near a path.

There is still one trap somewhere, but I'll leave that to be found by someone in the future. After all, it is a PvP area.
