Welcome! I too am all for earning fate coins. Your warband rating determines your opponents. However they will be in a range so you'll have some tough battles ahead. One of them will die. Get your head around that and plan as best you can, it's one of the Grim Truths of life in the City of the Damned. Alongside that remember: it's ok to take a profitable loss, keep to the shadows and never underestimate two pistols to he face. EDIT: and your fate-bought guys will stay until they die or you find someone better.
