Bonus Episode 01 - Mandolin Treasure Chest
Imagine that you have come to possess an aged fragile treasure map. This pirate has for more than four decades roamed where he pleased and collected, not without a fight at times, a staggering quantity of perfect gemstones, flawless pearls, gleaming dabloons, ingots, massive gold chains, silver goblets, and even a pouch full of gold teeth prised from the jaws of his feckless adversaries. The hoard is legendary and you have the map!
You follow the sparse clues to the cursed spot and, with your trusted assistants, begin digging in the pale light of a watchful moon. Thirty feet below, your spade strikes something solid in the moist sand.
Nearing dawn, as the sun threatens exposure, you and your sweating and cursing cohorts unearth and hoist to the surface an oaken chest, encrusted and bound in rusted chains and iron straps. Under the glare of the dwindling carbide lantern you break the bonds with a pry bar and raise the creaking lid. At last!
Next, you dispatch your foolhardy companions and throw them into the hole and abscond with the treasure. Muuuwaahaahaaa! Or some similar blood-curdling, sinister laugh.
(Can you tell I have read "The Gold Bug" by Poe?)
