Jobs and Money

There are many ways to earn money and Influence in Masters of Raana. This page serves as an introduction to most of those means. Remember that MoR is an open-world game - you're free to focus on one specific path or create your own combination of methods to reach wealth - whatever suits you best.

  • Slaver/slave trader: Find, rescue, capture or buy one of the many slaves roaming Ikaanos. This is an advanced profession requiring both your uttermost attention and a lot of invested time. Forming fiery raider girls into valuable assets can take several months, even for a veteran slaver. Apart from the arousing journey of exploring your slave's sexuality, the outcome is well worth it - a fully trained, young and relatively unspoiled slave can fetch up to $80,000 on the market. More information: Slave hunters.
  • Raider/adventurer: Find some good mercenaries, arm yourself with a decent weapon and put on a heavy armor before heading out into the wild slums of Western Ikaanos, where you'll find lost treasure, hidden quest locations, feral raiders and much more. "Taking up the rifle" is a path many freebooters walk, either as a test of manhood or to cash in on lost riches buried in the ruins of old times. Making a living as an adventurer is extremely dangerous if you come unprepared!
  • Factory worker: An easy, mindless task that'll get you through the day - with maybe enough cash left to play some cards at the local tavern or buy half a dozen crossbow bolts for your planned weekend hunting trip. An assignment at Westside Assembly Plant can yield anywhere from $40 up to $120 per day.
  • Gambler: A skilled gambler can expect to fetch at least $250, sometimes $500, from a good poker night at one of the several Taverns in Ikaanos which run gambling games. The luck factor makes this "job" tricky, however, as you could potentially come home with empty pockets.
  • Scavenger: Walk the districts of Ikaanos - or the jungles surrounding it, and bring home various gadgets, scrap metal, old cloth or other materials (Investigate Area > Scavenge). If you're lucky, you might stumble upon a rifle, durasteel remnants from old starships or even dropped energy cells. A "scavvie" can pull home anywhere from $5 to $1,000 if his Survival skill is high enough. Note! There's always a small ambush risk in Wild areas! Bring a friend, or good armor.
  • Crafter: Through Facilities > Crafting, you're able to explore Masters of Raana's complex crafting system. Focus on one thing, or many, and sell your stuff at markets. Remember that outskirts places such as Hamah Bay might offer more cash for rifles, while it's easier to sell clothes items in Ikaanos.
  • Professor: Reaching 75 in either Academics or Science opens up a whole new world to the player. You're now able to assign as a professor at Whitehaven Academy, and hold daily classes there. One lesson pulls in anywhere from $100-$400 per day based on your Standing at The Academy, your Influence and your relevant skills. There might also be various events while teaching class - unruly pupils, wiz-kids trying to challenge you or bullies that deserve a reprimand. Those events can further raise WILLPOWER, Academics, Science or other skills if successfully completed.


The Assembly Plant[edit | edit source]

Factory.jpg

You can check if there's any available work at the Westside Assembly Plant each morning. You must speak to the foreman before the shift starts at 9.30 a.m.

Assembly work is exhausting, but it pays well enough for you and at least one slave to eat, sleep, and pay taxes. There are four possible assignments at W.A.P:

  • The Great Assembly Line ($45/day) - low risk, normal theft chance. Social actions available.
  • Chemical Processing Plant ($120/day) - high risk, no theft chance. No social actions available.
  • Munitions line ($35/day) - medium risk, normal theft chance. Social actions available.
  • The concrete factory ($35/day) - medium risk, no theft chance. No social actions available.

Permanent injuries, scarring (Charm loss), chemical burns and significant Stamina point decreases are all possible risks.

Assigning slaves to jobs at businesses[edit | edit source]

As long as your owned slaves fulfill the necessary prerequisites, it's possible to assign them to various vendor locations in Ikaanos. Visit General Stores, weaponsmiths, restaurants etc, and ask if they need slaves. All details regarding skill requirements, age and other factors are instantly revealed when doing so.

See Assignments and jobs for more information.

  • Required investment: $1,600 (per wagon)
  • Income: $20/day (per wagon)
  • Bonus Income: with slave Rebecca's Skulduggerist title: $15/day (per wagon)
  • Business Disruptions: -$6/day (per wagon) from The Dockyard Punks, can be found as an enemy icon in The Docks district

Straalsund's caravans (Imogen's Barrow)[edit | edit source]

  • Business Disruptions 1: -$5/day from The Dockyard Punks, can be found as an enemy icon in The Docks district

  • Disruption Solution 1: Either pay off The Dockyard Punks, lower their numbers to 9 or less, or completely wipe them out to get rid of this effect
  • Risk: None

Note: the swamp raiders provide very poor loot when killed. So it might be worth your time to instead hunt more profitable bandits (who re-spawn) while letting the walker's (below investment) clear out the swamp bandits for you. With new random slave framework, you can capture one male enemy each battle, which can yield a fair amount when sold. [sorry, no females in any of the enemy pools]

Note: the tool-tip at location lists incorrect yield, it is missing the Dockyard Punks penalty. In home > Economy & Influence > Business screen, lists the correct amount yield.

The Walker Farm (Imogen's Barrow)[edit | edit source]

  • Required investment: $1,600
  • Risks: None
  • Automatically over time kill the swamp raiders who are attacking the Stralsund's caravans for you. Which increases your profit from that investment.

You can lend Gero Falkenstein money to invest in goods that'll bring enough income to provide you and the Skyguard sheriff with a satisfying trickle of gold.
