The hoard spell is certainly there.... [In reply to] Can't Post

"And already, so strong was the bewilderment of the treasure upon him, he was pondering whether by the help of Dain he might not recapture the Arkenstone and withold the share of the reward."

And as this seems to be precisely what he does, I think I'd question how good his strategy is after he has seen the Arkenstone. Up to that point, yes - I like Sador's reasoning about his attempt to divide Elf from man and spread doubt among them. My reading of this is that when he sees the runner coming he is confident - too confident, perhaps, that he has the situation under control. Once he realises he does not, the strength of his reaction is all the greater because he was so sure he had it right. And then there's the treasure... I love the use of that word 'bewilderment' - 'the bewilderment of the treasure'.
