So, if a Heavy Wagon costs 100gp in Pathfinder it would be about 10,000 Sundren "stags" right? And a Sailing ship (10,000gp) 1,000,000 stags.

I've often wondered why adventurers don't just start up businesses with those ridiculous amounts of gold. I guess that's why!

Or were you just throwing out a ballpark figure there? I think x20 or x50 would probably be enough, x100 does seem a little excessive, since it puts buying some things (e.g. the sailing ship) out of reach of almost all players.
