I cannot find a listing of things desired for the ship anywhere in my emails.

Please bear with me as this is all from memory.  I'm certain that some of this stuff is inaccurate and that I'm forgetting a lot of things you agreed upon, but I'm hoping that once you all see the post, more details will come back to everyone.   

Base Ship - 100,000
Broad Rudders - 500
Everfull Sails - ?
Ice Cannon - ?
Revealing Lanterns - ?
Hardened Wood - ?
Additional Magical Hardening - ?
Fortified Aft Castle -
Modified Teleporter (1x/day for 250 miles) - ?
Hallow Spell for 1 year (possibly with Death Ward tied to it) - ?
Normal Jail with Silenced, Dimensional Anchor Shackles - ?
Ice Porpoise Summoning Alarm - ?
Submerge Ship (1x/day) - ?

Total Cost = ~472,500

Here's the stuff I priced:
  • Invisibility Sphere Item - 1/day, CL 6, 6 min, 60 ft radius = 12,960 gc
  • Conjure Ice Beast 3 Hull Trap (qty 3) - 4 ice beast porpoises/trap, 20 ft hull section/trap, auto-reset, touch trigger = 14,000 gc/trap = 42,000 gc total
  • Captain's Lantern (Stormwrack) - audible alarm activated by intruders = 12,000 gc
  • Hallow w/Invisibility Purge (qty 2) - 4,000 gc ea = 8,000 gc total
  • Portable Hole = 20,000 gc

I have no clue on how we priced the 1/day teleport function. The base price for the wondrous architecture was 50,000 gc for unlimited range, we reduced it somehow using a restricted distance. Anyone remember?

I had used another spell, on a ice transportation spell converted to water.  I believe it was something like 12,500gc for several thousand feet.

Here's a thought, what if we make 'jet-ski' type items for the marines on the ship.  Essentially Carpets of Flying, but cast onto shortened surf boards or skim boards.  This will allow a strike force to get into position around enemy ships and board from any direction.  Add a 'sphere of invisibility' to them and they will be virtually undetectable on their approach.  Add 'shrink item' and they can be carried when not in use by boarding parties.

I love the idea.  I think we ran out of money.  How much does that cost.

They are pretty pricy.  $20k - $35k fair market value each*
(*Depending on size, not figuring in the Natsu pricing discount, if any)

The invisibility would add an additional cost as well

EDIT:
The above price assumes that they are permanent magical items.  We can get them done a lot cheaper for single or limited use versions
if my math is right, single use, use activated Flying (overland flight) Skim board with invisibility sphere would cost around 1653gp before markup (using alignment and skill reductions)

Just bumping this topic.   We still need to price out the cost of the hull and figure out the stats on the hull.  However, this is a lot of good info in this thread.

A wand of phantom steed at CL10 would create mounts that can water walk. Cost =22,500 gc for 50 charges, so 450 gc/use.

  • Invisibility Sphere item, 1/day

  • Captain's Lantern from Stormwrack
  • Shackles with silence and dimensional anchor
  • Everfull Sails

Did everyone contribute coin to the ship?  If so, how much?
