Hi all,
Newbie. I want to have stable money part happening before I can venture into the adventuring/role-playing part. Is there some sort of trip or something that I can do that will have some stable income so I have fuel and food for the next runs. It is ok if it modest and I have to do a few runs to get an officer or two and get equipment on board.

Looking forward for suggestions.

Ultimately that's not a particularly strong strategy, because the game is designed around exploration, so the best mechanical rewards are tied up with stories. That said, a couple of pointers:
1. Get port reports from every port you visit, turning them into the survey office is where most of your early fuel will come from.
2. A nice loop to start with is to go north through Hunter's Keep/Venderbight/Whither/Codex and then come back south to london through whatever islands end up in column 2
3. Take the money from the Blind Bruiser, that will fuel your second or third expeditions of exploration.
4. Visage has a nice story that can return quite a lot of cash in just a single trip.
5. If you feel like you must grind cash (which I don't reccoment), you can haul sphinxstone from the Salt Lions to London for good profit.

Hope these help

Find the salt lions and carry sphinxstone back to london. If Gaider's mourne is on the way to the salt lions then carry mushroom wine there for a +3 echo gain per cask. Smuggle cargo for the blind bruiser. DO NOT spend the money he gives you to pick up his cargo on upgrades.

There are not many things you can do early game to 'stabilize' income before exploring. Your best bet is to venture out and explore and do the upgrading as you go along.

One useful windfall you can get early:
[spoiler]
Go north to Vanderbight and get the first curater's quest. Then head north / east until you find Avid horizon. Get the eye, go back to the curator and swap the eye for a captivating treasure. Then go back to London, cash in all the port reports you've picked up and sell the treasure for 1000 echoes.

[spoiler]Bear in mind that you need a certain number of fragments for the Hunter's Eye and be sure to avoid the Lifebergs and Mt Nomad if you are that far north. [/spoiler]

By the way there is also a Beginner's Luck story (a one time event that pops up in some ports) Avid Horizon is one of them. I think there are varying results to what you can get but last time I did it I got a second item for the Curator's Quest smile

Sorry RL means I am not a very active player at the moment. No social actions unless you are prepared to wait and definitely no sparring or other mult-action things.

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

If memory serves, Avid Horizon's Luck reward is by far the most valuable, unless you're desperately in need of something specific that another location gives.
