My best advise is head on over to the build thread section and do some reading. You will find adventure, idea's, skill, and poverty. Every build thread is a interesting read.
Asking questions will only get you opinions, not true answers based off experience. The build thread section will provide answers complete with pictures.
Hope to see you more on the open forum.
