Observation:

Estimate was at 25,000,000 gc when the volume collected was thought to be 1130 cf.

We are now at 566 cf (50% of the original volume), so shouldnít the gc estimate be closer to 12,500,000 (50% of the original estimate)? 6,000,000 is 24% of the estimate.

Thatís based on portable hole volume only, so it doesnít include the bags of holding, which would in theory drive up the value even further.

Not that Iím complaining about getting 6,000,000 gc. I just noticed the inconsistency and wanted to put it out there.

I think the $25 million was for two trips @ 1130 cu ft each

The original was based on two of the 1130s.  I thought the first calculation was for one hole filled, so the total volume would have been 2260.

Also note that total is just gold.  There is a lot of other stuff, but there are tons to go through and the gold is the easiest to recognize and the quickest to be able to evaluate.

What method do you use to identify the 20+ magic items?

One item you find that radiates strong conjuration magic is a metal alchemist's bottle that would certainly have been rusted out if not magical.

Another is a faint necromantic aura in a similar glass container.

There are gnomish sized goggles that give off a faint transmutation.

There is a magic spear that looks like it is of Islander design.

Chase can now cast Legend Lore, but it's way too expensive to use for all those items.  Instead, I plan to buy an Artificer's Monocle from Natsu when we get back to Port Talp.  If the crew doesn't mind waiting a couple days, I'll have everything identified pretty quickly.

Amare has no issue with waiting a few days.  After that ordeal, he wants to give the crew at least a month shore leave.  In addition, he suspects that a few will leave after collecting their pay.  That is either because they are afraid of what could come next, or they have made enough coin.

There is a faint abjuration ring that despite its magic is tarnished.

There is a treasure chest, sealed and made of stone.  It has no key hole for a lock and only its shape and a seem that makes the lid obvious lets you know what it is.  Although it emanates no magic, moving it tells you there is air and an item inside.

There is a ring of faint transmutation that you only find because of its magic glow, it has no weight when you pick it up and its made of what you think is glass.

Neither Jean nor Amare, nor the sorcerers among the crew have it.
