I think I would enjoy this game if I didn't get killed so often! Spend all available cash on buying defensively, i.e. I use up curses quickly and spend too much money on replacing them, so I can't upgrade ships and then get sunk! There must be a trick or strategy to staying alive and actually managing to amass enough cash to upgrade to better ships.
Any help would be appreciated.

No, you just have to pay it off. Just like any debt you intentionally incurred.

You have a LOT of curses to start with. Don't bother replacing them until you absolutely need to.

Moreover, don't use curses unless you have to! Try "going bare" for the first several combats, and you will see that when there are no ships more advanced than yours, you will easily survive the combat with entirely affordable repair bills. (You can always Load an earlier Save if my advice isn't working for you.)

Buy another ship, preferably bigger than your starter, as soon as you can afford it--which will be in a very few "weeks" after starting--and put a Stone Golem on it, plus maybe a D10,000 medium-size gun if you're nervous. (But Golems are far and away the most effective per dinarius.) Your foes will have to divide their shots, so your mini-fleet will be at least twice as hard to sink. Increase your fleet to 3, then start putting more Golems on board.

When you eventually do need to start using curses and have to buy new ones, buy ONLY Plagues of bees. Aim them at all (but only) ships stronger than the average of your fleet. If they can't shoot at you for 10 seconds, that gives you time to destroy practically anything just with your guns.

Note that this last (Plagues only) is my personal opinion. Obviously, others must prefer different strategies, or the other 3 kinds of curses wouldn't be available! However, I have played and succeeded with 5 different characters using these guidelines, so I must be doing something right.

HOW I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS GAME. EVERYTIME I PLAY IT I FIND OUT SOMETHING NEW ABOUT IT. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S NOT MORE POPULAR. THE CUSTOM CHARACTERS ARE FUN AND THE ADVENTURES ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT. I WISH YOU COULD INTERACT WITH THE TINY FIGURES THAT WALK AROUND IN THE CITIES. MY FAVORITE TIP: WAREHOUSES ARE THE KEY TO AMASSING BIG FORTUNES. WHEN A ARTICLE LIKE GUNPOWDER OR RUGS IS BANNED AND YOU HAVE A WAREHOUSE THERE, CHECK THE PRICE IT'S SELLING AT. SOMETIMES IT'S 11,OOO DOLLARS! IT WON'T BE CONFISCATED EITHER!

I like tradewinds Lengends and Odyssey the best but I am hoping there will be another game to come along. Does anyone know?
