Glitch: Experience From Slaughtering Your Own
It's hard to say what you can do to incite this glitch since the
game is so random; however you can try and allow the English to be
your enemies thus letting you attempt to capture Greenford. Once you
do, ask your fleet to capture/destroy it. But because you "captured"
the town, it won't go away. Yet, your forces will gain experience each
time you "sack" your own city.
Hint: Avoid Cannon Fire
If you get yourself into a bad position in a sea battle, and know
you're going to be blasted with serious cannon fire, there is a way to
avoid it. When you see the smoke from the guns, quickly Sail To a
different part of the ship and you should completely avoid the blast.
Hint: Fast Money
This requires a character with positive reputation and medium to
high commerce level.
Go to the first tavern you find and hire an officer. When the
dialogue text comes up choose Isn't that to much? Keep selecting this
choice until the amount you will spend for the officer is a negative
Repeat this process until you have the desired amount. You can
lower this amount by a max of 1000 at a time with a commerce of 10.
(Each point of commerce equals 100 gold).
Hint: Run From Confrontation
If you run into a pack of unsavory characters, and don't think
you can best them in battle, flee from them and go past the last point
where the game loads. They will not follow.
