Early in the game (without cheating), go talk to the barrel maker that is inside one of the Broch's. This is the Broch that is near the middle of the town, but at the west end; his door is facing north (if you were to be facing his door, you would be facing east). The name of the place at the bottom of the screen when you walk in will read "Boyd's Barrels", at the west side of Houton. After you talk to him, go back outside. Go to the right side of his Broch and start destroying the barrels next to his dwelling (that are under the awning). He will come out and talk to you. Give him nice responses. He will give you the "Barrel Maker - Break lots of Barrels" quest. After that, every time you see a barrel, make sure you do whatever it takes to break it into tiny pieces. Then, go into The Drunken Rat bar and smash all the barrels on the upper floor. This is the floor you are on when you first walk in the front door. There are eight barrels that you can smash with your fists or a sword, and three behind the three singing drunks that you cannot destroy until you have bought a bow at the store. This makes a total of eleven barrels. Then, go down the stairs in the back room of the bar. You will find eleven more barrels to smash. After all those barrels have been smashed, go out the front door of the bar. Then, go back in and smash them all over again. After smashing a large number of barrels (over 100) go to the man who gave you the quest. He is standing next to the awning where you broke his barrels. He will give you 500 Silver. By doing this, it, you can make as much money as desired early in the game. Note: Try buying the Longbow to shoot the three barrels behind the singing drunks.
