Getting a Wife and Child:
Written by Cobra Commando

How to make babies and find true love with a tavern wench.

-=Getting Started
The first thing you'll want to do is level up far enough that you 
become a citizen.

You are then granted the freedom to start a love affair with up to 
three women as far as I can tell. Maybe more.

The option to do this is under "Social Activities" when you click on 
your main character.

Note: You cannot woo and betroth your employees. I tried to do this 
as they're reliably easy to locate, unlike some of my love-connections, 
so something to keep in mind is that you'll need to be able to find 
your lover. If their daily path crosses your home's front door, grab them.

In order to really get what you want (an heir) you'll need to be able 
to propose to your lover.

You need to level up the "Enchanting" perk which requires 1500 XP and 
is near the bottom of the skill list, or you may (unconfirmed) need to 
be their lover for several seasons if not years. I bee-lined for 
"Enchanting" because I did not believe that waiting was the correct 
answer. Less than a minute after I completed Enchanting, I was able 
to propose.

The next step is proposing. Hold your breath, click propose, 
and she'll accept.

-=A Child
In order to get an heir, stick your wife in your house. She cannot as 
far as I understand be used as a mule to gather resources and sell items. 
She basically has no reason to leave the house after marriage.

-=Spend time crafting in your house.
After around a year of being married, you should produce an heir!

My little boy is gaining experience in the crib while I continue to 
try to figure out how to create one of those hand-cart contraptions, 
so the guide wraps up here.

Rogues Strategy Guide:
Written by direstorm

Guide for rogues based on covering the bandit camp, starting a family, and swindling 
other dynasties for every penny they ever earn. Focuses on early game up to citizen.

-=Rogues are Underpowered!=-
I've seen several complaints that rogues are under-powered, that they just don't 
perform as well as crafters and farmers. Well, I have to say I've found the rogue to 
be the most powerful class in the mid to late game, although they are a bit slower 
climbing the first four ranks if you start as a Poor Fellow. Rogues are also the best 
class at combat, and rogue minions are the best minions at combat. Even the most 
pacifist hillbilly farmer will eventually want to pick up a few ranks of Rogue for 
the combat bonuses, and the bonus to Dexterity at present applies to all minions as 
well as family members. This directly contributes to their minion crafting and 
transport speed; it's basically a free level.

Note that several portions of this guide apply to any character, not just rogues; 
every character benefits from making flower bouquets at start, getting a wife and 
promptly siring a child or two, for instance. Take what you can from it and forgive 
the rest!

-=From Rags=-
So I've convinced you to roll a rogue, and you're staring at the character creation 
screen. Before your game even begins, I recommend taking a moment and considering 
your stats.

I generally leave most of the stats at the default of 3, but since I focus on diplomacy 
and run a merry band of fools I move a point out of strength and into charisma. This 
improves my chances to marry on my first try, and if you're not going to do a lot of 
ambushing and assassination strength is not as important.

I should note, however, that there is -another- way to play rogues, for that other 
way I would instead move a point from intelligence to charisma. This is better if you 
plan to do a lot of thuggery and bash yourself some skulls. That will cause you 
goodwill problems down the line, but luckily your loyal minions are all experts at 
solving goodwill way or another.

Don't forget Maxim 16: Your name is in the mouth of others. Make sure it has teeth! 
And once you have a sharp name, a sharp haircut and a sharp outfit, you are ready to 
go to the cut scene.

The intro video is glitchy for me, so I always skip it, but whether you watch it or 
not we come to your first moments as a Poor Fellow. Now is a good time to hit the minus 
button [ - ] a couple times and slow the game down to Slo-Mo so you can take your time 
and take stock. The game speed adjustment, at least in single player, is your best 
friend as it allows you to respond to situations that may develop very quickly and 
require a lot of clicking to take care of.

As a poor fellow, you should have started with 3000 coin, some rags and a house. 
But wait! In your house are some flowers. The first thing you'll want to do is pop 
inside and craft a couple of bouquets for the lady you will shortly be seducing to 
the Dark Side.

Since you likely started in an outlying village, you'll want to click the compass 
rose in the bottom right and get your bearings. You want to find the closest city 
entrance with some buildable space near it. The closer you put your Rogue Camp to 
the city, the more likely your knaves are to build your rep in the busy city districts, 
netting you better reputation, more reputation and more coin. Start building the camp 
while you're arranging flowers. They build fast and you only need one or two; 
you can sell the rest of the stuff in the house after your date.

-=To More Rags=-
Now that you have a strategically placed camp nicely on the way and a couple flowers 
for your next heartbreak, you'll want to pick a date. Preferably choose someone not 
too far away, who is younger than 20 to maximize fertility. You can often find a 
level 5+ mate, even at that age, but you don't want to wander the breadth of the map 
to find the perfect candidate. After all, there's a chance they'll just laugh at your 
feeble attempts at romance.

You might want to stop at a church along the way and adopt an orphan or two, especially 
if you have a lot of years per turn (like the default 4). This will give you a leg up 
in a couple years, but it is definitely a long-term investment.

You may notice that you have a percent chance to succeed at each dating action, and 
for many actions that percent chance goes up as your date likes you better. If you get 
turned down, don't worry too much; just do a stealth->perform action to give the bruise 
a chance to fade, and then try again. Once you've started an affair, use the flowers 
as they are a high-percent, high-reward action that will move things along quickly.

Once your mate is at 100% attitude towards you, it's time to get married. They should 
have at least a 90% chance to accept. Most likely, they'll accept. There's a short 
cutscene, and then your mate teleports to your house, ready to consummate the marriage.
You'll have to walk there, unfortunately, and then you'll see a new action in the social
panel: make baby. You can only use it when both you and your mate are in the same house,
and as you get older and make more children the percent chance of it succeeding diminishes

While your main characters are busy growing the family, it's time to consider that rogue 
camp. It should have finished building by now, or at least be close to done. You'll want 
to immediately hire all the employees you can and set them to perform, and then if you 
have at least 800 coin you'll want to go to addons->more workers, add two more workers, 
click addons again to close it, and hire another two workers. You should now have a 
total of six. Set all of them to juggling. This is a slower way to gain coins, but it 
has two advantages: it's generally completely legal everywhere, and everybody loves a 
troupe of performers. They'll gradually improve your reputation all over the map, which 
will be a powerful tool for later.

-=The Turn=-
OK, so everything is ticking along, and this is generally the point where players start 
deciding rogues are boring and underpowered. Your jugglers are juggling all over the map, 
you've got a baby in the oven and while you're not losing money, things are going kind 
of...slowly. Ready to heat things up a bit? It's time for our first swindle.

At this point if you've been following along you have a rogue camp with 6 employees, and 
if you couldn't afford six employees, don't worry; just sell the flowers and cloth in 
your house and maybe do a bit of a dance outside the market and you should have enough. 
Our trick works best with a full house.

Open the Book of Dynasties (Center top, leftmost icon, looks like a shield) and start 
hunting for our mark. We're looking for preferably someone with a rogue camp, but at this 
stage almost anyone will do. Click their faction leader, look in the bottom left for the 
diplomacy action and open a trade with them.

At this point, you've sunk 1240 coins into building the camp, plus 300 for upgrades, plus 
1200 for workers. Your total cost is 2740 coins, and you can't accept any trade worth less 
than that or you'll quickly wind up broke. The value of your business in trade is....7840! 
That means you can afford to trade your band of knaves for practically any other business, 
plus every penny your mark has, plus an alliance, and they'll be grateful for the 

This is very important: By default, when you demand coins, the checkbox next to the coins 
is NOT CHECKED. You need to check it yourself before you wreck yourself. Also, don't accept
less than a thousand coins and a business, or three thousand coins in cash. If your mark 
doesn't have that much, you'll need to find someone else.

You'll want to open up the buildings quick-access tab and check out your new business 
to make sure your employees all get the memo that they're under new management. They 
sometimes get confused, especially transporters. Just send the dimwits home and reset 
their route and they'll figure it out.

If you trade for a business you aren't proficient in, that's totally fine; just hire as 
many employees as you can in it, get the employee addons, hire transporters, and then 
sell the newly refurbished business to a dynasty that hasn't built anything yet....again, 
for every penny they've got.

This scheme packs a triple whammy: not only are you giving yourself a vital infusion of 
raw cash just at the moment when you are most poor, but you are looting your competitors 
and, because they don't understand how to use the power of knavery properly, stunting 

their long-term growth. They will begin ambushing all and sundry, becoming universally 
hated...but as long as you have that alliance you and your minions are protected and you 
don't have to worry about them.

-=The Prestige=-
Depending on how many dynasties you are inclined to swindle, and what sort of deals you 
were able to strike, you should now have at least one alliance and a bundle of coins. If 
you sold your last business, you'll want to build another rogue camp. You should have a 
cash reserve of at least 1200 coins if you've been following along, so now it's time to 
go to the skill tree (top left, leftmost button) and buy our first rank upgrade.

This gives our children some activities for ages five to fourteen, and lets us drive our 
workers --not terribly important as our workers don't really "produce" anything and our 
children are too young just yet. However, the rank upgrade also lets us build a second 

You might not be able to build a second business immediately. After siring a child, you 
can send your main characters to a resource node, like a cemetary or a flower grove, and 
have them harvest raw materials to send to market. You want a node that's close to your 
house and close to market, and you may want to invest in a carry bag or two if you do 

Sooner or later though, it's time to build our second rogue camp. This follows the same 
rules as the first one - preferably close to a city gate, set everyone to juggle rather 
than auto, max out your workers as quickly as possible. Now we have twelve jugglers 
roving from town to town telling everyone how awesome we are.

It's not a bad idea to recall both main characters to the home and set them to "Boast 
about achievements" until the baby is born and it's time to make another one. Their 
twelve workers should start quickly pouring in some coins thirty at a time, and the 
extra influence will come in handy soon.

It's not a bad idea to consider multiclassing at this point. Trading your second camp 
for at least a thousand coin and a croft, craftsman's hut or herb hut will allow you 
to buy the starting rank of that profession and let you get legal coins faster, at the 
cost of building your reputation somewhat more slowly...but at this stage coin is 
probably the limiting factor, so it's well worth considering.

-=Thug Life=-
At some point, as your successful swindler prances about the marketplace boasting about 
how he earned his first title, the poor fellow is going to get mugged by a robber who 
you are not allied with. You can only ally with robbers owned by a dynasty; the only 
way to get an unaligned robber to stop mugging you is to buy them out, and that can be 

If you don't want to keep getting mugged every time you wander home to produce another 
heir, you're going to want to stop by the market and shop in the self-defense aisle. 
In the Black Market section, a Shadow Dagger is cheap, effective and improves your 
ability to ambush, assault and rob people...not that a citizen as upstanding as you 
would ever stoop to such tactics. Why, you've got a whole team of jugglers whose sole 
job is to tell the world what a fine, upstanding citizen you are.

For the serious knave, nothing quite beats the deluxe model, however. The Poison 
Dagger is quite expensive but will handily defeat anyone not wearing City Guard Armor. 
It also makes it much easier to prompt business owners to contribute to the Knaves 
and Orphans Fund.

However, as any professional hatchetman can tell you, in your day-to-day life nothing 
quite beats an axe. It's a good compromise between cost and effectiveness and since 
most NPC's are minimally armed, it still gets the job done.

You'll also want some protective clothing. An ambush specialist can do best with 
citizens' garb, the better to blend into a crowd; a solicitor is better off with 
chainmail armor to help convince even the hardest-nosed businessmen that it's really 
in their best interests to donate; and a really dedicated brawler will also want to 
invest in a shield to minimize downtime between runs. A politician is generally 
better off with a Patrician's Garb, as influence makes the world go round and allows 
you to buy stat bonuses under the Ambition tree.

You may also want a blanket (under clothing) so you get sick less often as they are 
cheap and effective, and possibly a carry sack (under essentials) or, if you are feeling 
wealthy, a riding horse (not a regular horse) which will greatly increase your speed 
and generally makes the game a bit more pleasant. You can also look at various Luxury 
goods, which generally go in either the Artifact or Neck slots and give various bonuses. 
I am fond of guard dogs; perception contributes to disease resistance and makes you 
harder to rob.

All told, expect to pay at least six hundred to a thousand coins to get into fighting 
shape; fifteen hundred or more is not unreasonable for some heavy muscle.

If you do get sick, you can generally cure yourself with an Urgent Action at an herb 
hut, or if you are in a hurry you can buy herbal tea (under food), painkillers (under 
luxury goods), and so on for specific treatments. They may not be a hundred percent 
effective, however.

Finally, you'll want at least Rogue 2 for the extra stat boost and the ability to set 
ambushes. The best place to set an ambush is generally near a tier-2 or tier 3 farm 
or estate farm, so you can rob their high-level goods on the way to market. You can 
also directly attack their transporter, but be aware the transporter is likely to 
run away.

If you are going to assassinate the other faction leaders, hold off until at after 
you reach rank IV. Resident; you still have more swindling to do!

Quick Progression Guide:
Written by LostBait

Guide about creating a save point in the game with decent starting money/influence 
for multiple play sessions.

Since Guild 3 doesn’t force us in with a particular class system, we can branch into 
anything later in the game given enough money and influence.

The following steps are my standard progression route for a new play through.

First Slow-Mo game speed to set everything up, then speed it up to x4 as needed.

-=Step 1: The Money Train (Generating Seed Money)=-
Start as a Barber, use the map layout to find any of the resource nodes like groves, 
bogs, cemetery etc. near your starting home. Since we are not selling anything on the 
market but exclusively offer services to generate money try to place the structure near 
resource nodes.

* Hire a transport worker to buy ingredients.
* Max. out employees first, set 1-2 workers to service customers.
* Then automate production.
* Buy upgrades, when possible, prioritize customer satisfaction -> worker efficiency 
  ->fire protection >building security> building health etc.
* Build at least one in every village.
* When workers level up put everything into Charisma and top off strength as necessary.

-=Step 2: The Family Tree (Generating Seed Influence)=-
* First have main character make flowers bouquet and wash cloth in starter home.
* Sell/use as needed.
* Take everything with you once done. Start a romance, find the youngest persons on 
  the list for decent fertility and survival results.
* Begin romance, give flower, secret compliment, give them one crafted flower bouquet 
  then cycle through the 3 options again and again until 90%+ affection. 
  You can do this back-to-back and wed the person immediately.
* Send both newlyweds to starter home and begin offspring-ing until you get at least 
  2 kids. While pregnant the woman can still do any task as normal.
* Hire both newlyweds as employees of the starter home and set the task of “Boasting 
  about achievement”. This is the only task the needs to be done by all your adult 
  family members throughout the early and mid-game.

-=Step 3: The Game=-
* Save game at this point- use it as a jumping point for different play through. 
* Enjoy this beautiful game bugs and all.

How to Makey Money Easy:
Written by DiWorm

Now I have found 2 easy ways:

-=Money at the start=-
Immediately after loading the game – choose the dynasty of rivals, ask for 500 coins 
and an alliance. Don’t forget to check the checkboxes.

in 99% of cases, the opponent agrees and thus you get a good burst at the start.
Works in multiplayer!

-=Money in the middle of the game=-
We just take any of our adult characters and look for a more titled one in the list 
of acquaintances. As a rule, such people have a huge number of things in their 
inventory. I most often got carts for carriers in the amount of 15-19 pieces. 
We create a family, divorce / kill after selling loot. Repeat.
Works in multiplayer!
