WELCOME TO GAIA!!! Yeah, play games, join roleplays in Barton Town because you earn gold everytime you post something, or you can even draw avi-art for gold; you draw a picture, they give you gold! biggrin Art tranding is located Here, in the mini shops. Go look around!
My advice is collect 999 gaia cash point from the offer in the cash tree icon
buy the chance item which cost the exact same value
and sell it, you'll instantly get a few mill
but I recommend you to check other items as well to make sure which item worth more for the effort and months you spent to get the 999 gaia cash point from the offers
Anyway welcome to gaia
