As soon as the Onyx Key arrives in Port Edgeward, Captain Morgan will inquire about the availability of a Horn of Fog for purchase (2,000gp out of the 10,000 allocated to shipboard goodies). He'll also buy as many Feather Tokens of the "Fan" type as are available. "Bird" and "Anchor" Feather Tokens are of interest as well -- and a couple of "Swan Boat" Feather Tokens might prove extremely valuable, even at 450gp each! An ounce of Sovereign Glue (2,400gp) is bound to come in handy sooner or later. Also, scrolls of "Make Whole" in the ship's locker would allow any sorcerer or oracle to do some ship repair in the midst of battle: can we get 4 of those (150 each)?

Please let me know how many of each of the above goodies are available, Matt. Then we can determine what's left to spend.

These are just the things I came up with -- I'm open to more suggestions in the cool-but-affordable-ship-stuff category. I reckon we can also spend a thousand gp on potion-making supplies, keeping our gnome busy in the lab. For 600 gp in supplies, 2 dozen potions of Endure Elements would allow the entire crew to operate for a day in extreme climate conditions, just in case we encounter a hostile environment in our travels. (It would also require 24 days of lab time, though...) Another 400 gp worth of healing potion materials could be used to prepare a nice infirmary, as well...

Duhwoo & All

Made it to S. Dakota! However, I didn't bring my notes for the game with me. I'm having a brain fart and can't remember what the setup was for outfitting the ship. Can someone post that for me?

Also, once we get to our final destination and I have a chance to site down, I'll roll to see what of the this stuff is available.

I am dubious about purchasing the sovereign glue, especially since you need 1000 gp in salve of slipperiness just to contain it. I'm sure it has some awesome off the wall uses but I think the money might be better spent.

A wand of Endure elements would be cheaper and go further. Some of the other stuff might go further.

How much of this bounty are we planning on investing in the characters? I think investing more then 20% in the ship might be unwise.

Good idea on wands instead of potions: Morgan will first determine if a wand of endure elements is available for purchase. Also, a wand of Cure Light Wounds is always a good value. Matt, please let us know if we can purchase both of those wands, for 750gp each.

The Sovereign Glue would be for mast repair, in case we snap one. I reckon "Make Whole" can fill that role more cost-effectively, though -- so we'll forgo the glue. Also skip the Horn of Fog, I guess, since we have a caster who likes "Obscuring Mist". The various Feather Tokens are a high priority, however.

I reckon whatever is left after the above purchases can be distributed to the 7 members of the shore party (including Tern, Bulla, and now Wahi). So, if we can get everything I requested for the ship:
- 2 wands @ 750gp each, or 1,500gp
- 4 x Scrolls of "Make Whole" @ 150 each, or 600gp
- 8 Feather Tokens, totaling 2,300gp:
(4 x "Fan" @ 200gp each; 2 x "Swan Boat" 450gp each; and 2 x "Bird" @ 300gp each)

That's 4,400gp -- leaving 5,600gp to divide by 7 (5 PCs + 2 NPCs): 800gp for each character. That should be pretty helpful.

If we cut Fritz's amounts in half we end up with about 2200 GP spent we can increase the stores of those items as we go.

IMHO NPC' gear purchase should fall under the umbrella of Ship expenses rather than party share.

I have a full wand of CLW that I would be happy to contribute to the ships needs, if so desired.

I disagree with simply cutting the order in half: we don't know when we'll have access to magic for purchase again. Since we have a wand of CLW, I reckon we only need the wand of Endure Elements now. Also, I'll drop a Swan Boat (we can only lose the ship once, so should only need a rescue vessel once). If I drop the request from 4 to 3 "Fan" Tokens, that brings the order to an even 3,000gp -- and an even 1,000gp to each shore party member.

I understand the argument for NPCs getting money from a common pool -- but in this case, I view all members of the shore party (PCs and NPCs alike) getting 1,000 GP from the ship's pool. I recommend Bulla get Bracers of Defense for a +1 to his AC (plus they'll look cool), and Tern should get a +1 enhancement to his armor.

Divide by 6 now, so everyone gets 1167.67 gp.

I will use a portion of mine to buy tern a "really big sword" - either a mwk. petrin bastard sword (368.5 gp) or mwk. petrin great sword (385) - his choice. The idea behind a bastard sword being he could eventually pick up the feats to fight one handed with it and add then add a shield to his panoply.

Tern should get nice base armor before he invests in making it magic - what does he wear right now?

I am given to understand that a) the gnome Anna is a sorcerer and b) that the prophecy from the scary lady with no history says that the ship she will be on (her father's ship is doomed). If this understanding is correct, Rhedoc would like to try to acquire a scroll of Teleport and send it to her as a gift in a watertight case - "Use in case of emergencies" - the thought of her sinking along with that ship is terrifying. This would be a 1125
gp scroll + case cost.

OK let me explain this differently if what you want for them is more than the 20% for ships provisions I agreed to it has to come out of your share. So far I, as a player, have not agreed to more than 20% of the booty to be allocated to the ship. Just as I assume Rhedoc is using his share to buy said teleport scroll. So 10k -20% = 8000 /4 players = 2000 each.

For Bulla we may want to look at the Piecemeal armor options in ultimate combat to find a way to provide more than a +1 AC bonus while minimally hindering his movement.

I'm ok with the 8000/4 option, too. I will still buy the 'port scroll, the Mwk Weapon, and in addition I can pick up a wand of mage armor and four of oils of magic weapon for bulla - this would be all out of pocket for Rhedoc, which I'm fine with. I believe these purchases would take care of the NPC situation for a bit. I can use magic device on the wand, or I can hand it to the Captain to cast it on Bulla. That way we don't have to get permanent enchantments for any of the NPC's right now (which are expensive), and we can use the wand of mage armor on Ariana as well in her animal form.
