A steward is one who is responsible for the supervision and maintenance of propertyentrusted to their care by the owner. While this is primarily a religious notion, there is asecular equivalent originating from the place of conservation of resources. She points out that though gambling isnt necessarily opposed by rights theory, the legalrestriction on gambling in almost every jurisdiction is consistent with the conclusion thatgambling is wrong because it is a violation of our duty of stewardship of property.

There wasn't an existing FAQ to help make some fast and easy caps without using some kind of cheat, bug, or exploit, and those ruin games for me.
After a few different characters and some practice, I found some good methods to achieve enough wealth to afford the majority of anything I could want from those merchants.
So here I will point out some of the things I have learned in the hopes that it will benefit you, and help you set your new character up for the long road ahead.
