Can they be wrecks, or do they still need to be functional?

SoFS lists the following wrecks:

Nadyra’s Glory – often mistakenly called “The Lost Princess”, it sunk in 926 DR off the coast of Tsurlagol while carrying an Impiltur Princes on her way to wed Crown Prince Reigard of Cormyr.

Shadowake – was the flagship of the guildmaster of the Shadowmasters of Telflamm, sunk in 1353.

Thepurl’s Diamond – sank while transporting a captured lich in 1367… the lich is probably still in it’s ‘crate’.

Valashar’s Bane – Named after Azoun I’s victory over Valashar, and is described as a very fast running cog, lightly armed, used primarily to overtake pirates. It sank in 389 DR, but the Crown Prince and his crew all made it ashore. The village of Dawngleam now exists upon the landing site of the survivors.

Liriel Baenre sailed on the Elfmaid, which I believe was renamed Leaping Narwhal after Captain Hrolf’s death. Since I only have the last book of that series handy, I can’t find out what kind of ship it is, which would have been described when first encountered.

I’ll try to find more for you.

From Complete Necromancer's Handbook:

Sarzec: Scrofula (caravel) -- prowls waters off Sahu




From Crusade:

Sarnath (cog) -- Sembia:

    The Blue Diamond is mentioned in the 2e CS, but since it is a flying ship I'm not sure if it's appropriate.

    Perhaps a seperate list for known flyers?

    I found one more.
    in "The ring of winter"
    The two Wombats arrived on Chult territory when the boat they were sunk... OK, the boat exists no more but if you start a party before the present day... *cough*...

    It is... was the Rampage, which type and owner is unknown at this point of my reading !

    There was a ship mentioned in the first chapters of "Yellow Silk". IIRC it was sunk though. If anyone would check on that - my book is at a friends house, so I cannot do so myself.

    Can't recall the name, but there's a rather famous shipwreck off the coast of Calimshan in EMPIRES OF THE SHINING SEA. Wish I could scour out all the ship names and such for you there, but there's very few. I suspect I put all my ship-naming info into SEA OF FALLEN STARS.

    Passage to Dawn (Forgotten Realms)

    This book also contains time on the ship Sea Sprite, and battles with pirate ships, which are well done. I also enjoyed the new characters of the wizard Cadderly and his wife Danica, although their appearance was short.

    Cheeking into it, what about Haluran sky ships

    Isn't Cadderly a priest of Deneir ? even a Chosen of this deity.
    Why do you write "new character" ? Cadderly isn't new in the novels, he was the hero of a pentalogy before "playing" with Drizzt in Passage to dawn.

    From Old Empires (Chessenta secection)-

    "The Wraith of the Inner Sea-

    This is a fleet of four ships that serve as privateers along the coast of Chessenta. Their commander is the half-orc "Sea Queen" Kreodo, who is documented in the 'Personalities' section. Her ships are the following:

    Sea Queen (dromond): 200 Crew, 50 Marines, and eight 3rd-level mages and five 6th-level mages. This Kreodo's flagship, captained by Kreodo herself. The first mate is Rutters (8th-level fighter).
    Sea Horse (dromond): 200 Crew, 30 Marines, and five 4th-level mages and one 9th-level mage. This ship is commanded by Captain Morgalshym (11thlevel thief), and its first mate is Brawn (8th-level fighter). The mage is Curnetheres, an outlaw of Luthcheq who decided to join the crew to get revenge against the city.
    Sea Jewel (dromond): 200 Crew, 100 Marines, and three 5th-level mages. This ship is a heavy marine support vessel. Its captain is Bendensar (6th-level thief), ex-thieves#146; guild assistant of Mordulkin, and his first mate is Lorien (5thlevel mage), a female elf who ran away from Yuirwood for a life of adventure.
    Sea Quest (dromond): 200 Crew, 50 Marines, and two 7th-level mages. This is a fast attack vessel whose mages have gust of wind spells for the sails; the ship has a reinforced hull for ramming. This vessel is meant to cut off a ship if it tries to flee. Its captain is Sturion (10th-level fighter) and his first mate is Perithor (7th-level fighter). When the Sea Queen#146;s fleet gets within attack range of a vessel, they fly her colors (a black crown against a blood red field) and attack. Their favorite tactic is to try to surround their prey from all sides, then close in for the kill."


    I know I saw another list of ships within the last day or so - I'll try to remember where I saw them and post them as well.

    EDIT: Found in VGtC -

    In Suzail:
    Crown of Cormyr is a massive floating palace. It is often used by the royal family to relax away from the eyes of the Court or to entertain guests in secret.
    Dragon- Cormyr's largest warship, is well equipped with ballistae and firepothurlers.
    Blade of Espar - small coastal runner
    Lance of Wheloon - small coastal runner

    In Marsember:
    Ansiber's Wrath is a particularly decrepit, leaky old galleon.
    Sea Snake - a large and well-armed war caravel
    Thomdor's Fist - a large and well-armed war caravel

    In Sarshel (Impiltur):
    Rilaunyr's Warship was once known as the scourge of the Easting Reach. The ship herself is a three-masted ninety-footer. She carries a sailing crew of thirty, and a hundred fighting marines. Mini-ballistae line her ironbound sides; a catapult shoots from the flying deck in the rear, and two massive ballistae are directed over the prow. The real power of Rilaunyr's Warship lies in magic. When fully manned, she carries six magic-users, levels 7-13, and a complement of twelve clerics of Poseidon, one of whom is a 15th level high priest.

    Now, that are news to me! I never heard that Poseidon was a deity in the Realms?!?! Does some sage know more to clarify the matter?

    I've read about Poseidon in FR by reading an article about Lady of pain.
    I read that "she may be the daughter of Poseidon from the Greek Pantheon of Arborea. However this is not made clear and even suggested that the memories of her early life released from an amphora may have been faked by the god himself in order to potentially sway the Protector of the Cage towards his way of thinking".

    I also saw that Poseidon was writen about in Monstrous Compendium Annual Vol. I.. But I could not verify it.
    However, it is not a FR-sourcebook.

    About clerics of Poseidon : Nothing to deal with Torilian deities. That's just a general-D&D god
    Poseidon :
    Great Tsunami, Lord of Waves
    Greater Deity
    Symbol: Trident
    Homeplane: Arborea-Aquallor
    Alignment: CN
    Portfolio: Seas, rivers, and earthquakes
    Worshippers: Fishers, sailors, sea creatures
    Cleric Alignments: CG, CN, CE
    Domains: Water, Chaos, Earth, Storm, Destruction, Weather
    Favored Weapon: Um, duh!
    Cleric Training: Poseidon’s clerics must learn how to swim, and how to stay upright while in a magically stimulated earthquake.
    Quests: Clerics of Poseidon protect the oceans and help earthquake victims. Some (the CE ones) may destroy ships and kill the crews if they feel the crew disrespected Poseidion.
    Prayers: Ussually mentions Poseidon’s greatness before asking for something “Lord of the Waves, Great Tsunami, Earth-Shaker, we bow before you!”
    Temples: Always open to the sea.
    Rites: Often sacrifices to placate the deities temper.
    Proxies and Allies: Lord Polyphemos, a male storm giant Barbarian 20, Druid 20, Spirit Shaman 20, Favored Soul 20.

    I don't know if Bryan is bothering with this anymore, but I found a few more in the 1e CS -

    The Ratclaw - an independent Caravel out of Selgaunt.
    The Unbolden - a full-rigged cog out of Telpir
    The Bloody Umber - a "sailrig" (large wooden raft fitted with a trisail and sweeps) coaster.

    All three were lost in in Ches of 1357.
