Quest 3: What is in the final chest?

In Quest 3: Lair of the Orc Warlord, there is a curious room behind Ulag's chamber that contains a treasure chest guarded by a pit trap. There are no notes whatsoever mentioning what is inside. Its most likely supposed to be empty, but for all we know it was supposed to contain 5 suits of Plate Mail. This is an issue that has bothered me for countless years. So what do you guys think? How have you (as the evil sorcerer) dealt with this mystery treasure chest?

How odd.

The UK version has the chest trapped for one BP of damage, and than 100 gold coins. If that helps.

It does help. Thank you so much. Perhaps the gold was removed in the North American version because they thought it was too much money or they simply overlooked it. I would always forget about it, but every now and then I would flip through the quest book, i would notice that chest again. Thanks again, the mystery is finally solved! :P

I know the UK version says there's 100 gold in there.
You can ask the same for the chest guarded by the stone gargoyle in Quest 11, Bastion of Chaos... UK version doesn't have an answer there...

I believe that chest is supposed to be empty. It does not specifically say so, but mentions that the chest IS a trap and if disarmed before opening, Zargon tells the hero the gargoyle would have come to life if the hero searched for treasure.

I think the intent is the chest is a trap, a fake chest, and not a treasure chest with a trap on it.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a chest just like it in the first quest of Keller's Keep and that one's not empty.

Some chests are empty and some have treasure. Same with cupboards and weapon's racks etc. Not every piece of furniture has a note every single time. No note = empty. At that point it is just a piece of furniture to lure you into a trap.
