I just got the magic ship and I'm wondering if its possible to run all the way up to Orkutsk for the shops right now. First time though this game so no major spoilers please. --- We don't beat the reaper by living longer, but by living well.
*spoilers but since you know about Orkutsk you probably know about these town names aswell*
if you really got the ship just now the max you can go is Argonia. Even Arcadia is out of your reach yet. basically from this point on you can visite all towns you can reach by boat. Almost all the others you can't reach till it's storywise time to visite them.
