Special 2000 Gols letter
If the player suddenly becomes very poor, it is possible for a one-time letter to appear in their mailbox with 2000 attached. It is uncertain who the letter is from, but it is implied from the contents of the letter that it is from Higgins.
|You're so poor it's embarrassing! Pull yourself together! Look at Higgins, his workshop is getting bigger and better because he works hard!
P.S. Here are some funds to get you over the hump.
Gols can also be used to purchase upgrades for the player's crafting stations and house at A&G Construction, to pay for the subscription for the delivery service from the Tree Farm or Dana's Mining Company, to rent or purchase a horse at Rent-a-Horse, to change the player's appearance at the Barber Shop, to reset the player's skill trees via acupuncture, or to pay for the commissions the player posts at the Civil Corps board.

- Supported by Higgins's in-game biography and his acknowledgement of the player as his rival. "Higgins hails from a poor family on the outskirts of Portia. From a young age, Higgins learned the connection between money and status, vowing to make as much money as he can and never let his family be poor again."
