 Treasure Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold".

Treasure is a magnificent, if completely alien-sounding album that requires work on the part of the listener, with a few sessions required before the entirety of the album fully sinks in.
Some might consider Treasure to be a difficult album, though I prefer to see it more as an album to come back to time and time again (...preferably late at night...), with each new experience exposing new ideas and interpretations that you perhaps didn't pick up on the first, second or third time.
But when "Treasure" arrived in 1984 it was as if the clouds had parted after five dark years of Thatcherism and the world was suddenly bathed in an all enveloping golden glow.

 Asheron's Call > Treasure in AC
Wield requirements are controlled by the wealth rating of the treasure profile, so in a sense they correlate to the quality of the treasure.
Later on, as players reached higher levels and higher quality treasure became more widespread, the middle wealth ratings were pushed both down into lower level creatures (in an attempt to keep lower level players interested in treasure) and up into higher level creatures (in an attempt to keep from running out of wealth ratings).
This actually left us with an interesting problem for the future: because the content designers were well aware that the old chests had low quality treasure, they would often place only wealth rating 3 and 4 chests in their dungeons, regardless of the target level of the area.
