** Colonel Agustin Allende of the corrupt Mexican regime, despite being from peasant stock himself, brutalizes the common people. Allende uses violence as a common tactic, with executions being common. His economic policy is to keep the people poor, starving and without hope. He also routinely has girls abducted to serve as sex slaves for himself or his men.

** It's possible to travel to West Elizabeth in the main story before you've progressed that far. Become Wanted by the police and let them chase you to the river behind [=MacFarlane's=] ranch (usually by the waterfall works best) and surrender at the cliffs there. Behold; you will be put in the Blackwater jail. (The only way to get back is by using a stagecoach.) Enjoy catching the black stallion or gathering valuable pelts you'll need for certain side missions or 'Challenges' long before you're supposed to be able to.

** You can buy +100 units of Fame and +200 units of Honor for the low low price of $10 a pop as many times as you want, all you need is a few hundred dollars to get started. Go to Thieves Landing and buy the Elegant Suit for $75. Now, return to [=MacFarlane's=] Ranch and save. Head to the poker game and buy in for $10, skip to your turn, get caught cheating immediately and win the resulting duel by shooting the gun out of your opponent's hand. Repeat until there are no opponents left, save the game and they will all respawn. As the [=MacFarlane's=] Ranch poker table almost always has four players at all times of day and the cheapest buy in, you can rinse and repeat this process to get your Honor/Fame to Hero/Legendary status with all the benefits that brings (i.e. half price in all shops that aren't at Thieves Landing) very early in the game. If you run out of money, simply do the night watchman mission (also nearby) which can usually earn $40-90.

* GameBreaker: In one of the side missions, you are asked to play Liar's Dice against a man in Thieves' Landing, in order to get the deed to a property. The collateral on the deed is $200, so technically he puts down $200 every time he plays (even after you get the deed). Also, this guy is TERRIBLE and never runs out of money, so a half-hour to an hour and a three year-old's skill at Liar's Dice is all that's required for all the money you could ever want.
** You can buy +100 units of fame for the low low price of $10 a pop as many times as you want: get and wear the elegant suit and make sure you have at least two horse deeds for quick saving. Now go to [=MacFarlane's=] Ranch and do a full save there. Then go straight to the poker game and buy in for $10, get caught cheating immediately, win the duel by shooting the gun out of the opponent's hand. Repeat until there are no opponents left, swap horse deeds to trigger a quick save, reload that quick save, do it all again. As the [=MacFarlane's=] Ranch poker table has four players at all times of day and the cheapest buy in, you can rinse and repeat this process to get your fame to Legendary status with all the benefits that brings very early in the game.
