    we should try to save some money from each run we make.

    last I heard, 10 million is sufficient to start a good city, 20 million is recommended so you have money to maintain it for a while.

    i have 80k saved right now. =\

    Quite a long way to go. I'm still wondering if I want to play SB. I liked some parts of it, just not the constantly being jumped by people 20+ levels above me. :rolleyes:

    I actually haven't been jumped yet. There was a R4 who tried to kill a R2 group I was in, but we killed him.

    275k now

    Don't know yet. We are at least a good month or two away from having enough money to start a city.

    CMS has been doing lots of farming runs and has about 1.9 million saved right now. I have about 630k saved.

    ... and we need an approximate minimum of 5 million gold to start a city. So we are half way there.
