I want to go this journet alone for now, without the help of any factions.(i'll start my own eventually), however, I realize this brings up an important financial concern...I have almost no money. So, what can I do to improve this situation so I can make it on my own.
Even if you're not gonig to join a faction, talk to a few. Hopefully one of them will hire you (as a freelancer) to complete missions for them. They'll pay you to transport their stuff, pick up their new members, etc
