This is my first blog post on this wiki =P
So I am going to tell you how I am doing so far.
Thanks to the help from IceCreamKitten (I love that name) and Classicvibe (If hat is how you spell it), I was able to increase my reputation without the need to give 12k to every church in the hanse.
Unfortunately, my Home town of Breman now requires more goods than I can supply them...the neighbouring cities do not produce enough.
Hopefully I can get over it.
On a plus note, I killed 6 pirates with my 2 Hulk Convoy "Man-At-Arms"
