Sorry for the misaligned items.

Equipment kept in stores (in addition to equipment currently in use) -- FYI Freiburg has a quarter of all stockpiled equipment. The latter is roughly equal to a quarter of all equipment currently used. That's a lot of daggers! You can figure the rest.

Figure stores also include about 100 arrows and 100 quarrels per archer/crossbowman, or 13,300 each. Phew...

Not to forget a good portion of the Ordensland's treasury which could be anywhere from 20,000-40,000 gp.
