A time consuming but easy way of getting as much gold as you want is to
buy furs one at a time (if the cost is low enough she wont charge you for
them 1 at a time) then just sell them and buy whatever you want with

Play scenario 1, it is the most fair (and most challenging.) Leopard
Headed is probably the best GoodFellow, but Nine Dragons and Blue
Face Beast are a lot of fun too.
Set up early in either Prefecture 39/40 (in the West) or somewhere
on the East coast, not adjacent to the enemy. Service your farm and
build through October, then hunt for food in November and give it all
to your citizens in December that way you should get tax revenues
Once you are established, divine and recruit as many heroes as
you can. Expand carefully, and never move adjacent to either Gao
Qui or other GoodFellows until you have a sizable army. (It doesn't
matter how good your troops are as long as you have enough of
them the computer players won't attack large armies.)
Make at least 2 or 3 high-quality heroes into Sworn Brothers. If you
can, try to get Little Li Guang.
When you're ready for battle, ALWAYS train and arm your troops to
the max, regardless of expense. Perfect troops will slaughter lowly
ones. Once you begin your attack, press on, but be sure not to create
a larger front then you can defend. And watch your food!
Once you get the Edict, try to surround Gao Qui before attacking
him or he'll flee. Then take in 1000 troops, led by your best
leaders (by then you should have Little Li Guang, Black Whirlwind,
Chief Advisor, etc.) and you should slaughter him.
