This ad appears in newspapers all over the U.S.A. so you don't have to be near the address in the ad. Remember when you make up your character concepts that you should be a diversified group.* After all, I know it's fun to beat everyone up, but if you don't have any knowledge about how valuable your treasure is you may be taken by those who do. Remember, all that glitters is not gold. Some of my treasures may not be obvious as such and can be subtle. For example, the most valuable item on Mars is "liftwood". If you've never seen liftwood before you may mistake it for common wood (except that it floats in the air). Another treasure is a type of spice and if you don't think spice is valuable just remember that is why Columbus came to the New World. -Joe,
