  6. Tip: When you travel trough the town, write down every shop you encounter and all the prices for every armour, helmets, weapons, shields... Don't buy anything. When you've got the whole city on paper, and enough money, then buy the most expensive helm, shield, weapon, armour... for everybody of your team. So you avoid wasting your money when you discover a better item than the previous shop got for you. Tip: After fighting, always share the money that you pickup, between your team members. Each member will be happy!
