Is there an easy way to find fellowships that match up to your boosted goods?
This.I think just as or even more important is to find a fellowship that has the same game goals as yourself.
If your boosts match then your sentients will also.The reality is that with 24 other members there is a greater likelihood that your boosted goods will fit just about everywhere. I would consider your sentient boosts and your level to be a more important "match up"
Actually the issue is more about what sentient boost you have and not the standard good.If your boosts match then your sentients will also.
You are boosted in Steel they don't have many Steel producers so you fill a hole.
If you are boosted in Steel then your sentient is Gum. Obviously they don't have many Gum producers.
I am not sure if it is possible to start a new city and reach Elementals within 6 months. Unless you spend massive amounts of diamonds. I did it in slightly over 12 months in my first city and I move through chapters at a very rapid pace. I did have to learn the game and I was in a starter FS (which I ended up helping grow to 10 chest status). Knowing what I now know and if I joined a top FS from the get-go, it might be possible to shave 1 or 2 months off that time. But I don't think I could do it any quicker than that.
I also think players in chapters 3, 4 and 5 no longer win Portal Profits at all in the Spire. Instead they now get supply and coin instants. While this might help a casual player, it would actually hurt a player trying to make a speed run through the chapters, because it would take them a little longer to start stockpiling PPs.After that, Inno made some changes to the guest races that make it take longer, no matter what your supply of various boosts looks like.
While it may be 6 to 12 months for a player to reach sentient goods, I did make it clear that the level of the player "and" Sentient boost to be more important.@ed1960 I hear your reasoning, but a new player will likely take at least six months or more to get to where sentient goods become an issue. (At my current growth rate, I anticipate it will take me about 18 months.) By that time the composition of a fellowship will likely have changed substantially, as well as potentially the balance of sentient goods on any particular world. Long-term planning is a good thing, but getting too specific for plans more than a few months ahead in a game like this may not be effective. In a year when I might start making sentient goods, there may be event buildings that produce everything or a whole new way of trading.
Also, unless your soap is liquid soap, wouldn't it be solid gold?
In this case, the OP seems to be in chapter 5 no matter which server ( all are around 22K score ) so I did look at the issue with a forward approach, maybe too far but it was my first reaction to the question.The reality is that with 24 other members there is a greater likelihood that your boosted goods will fit just about everywhere. I would consider your sentient boosts and your level to be a more important "match up"
If Inno let us sell in game assets for real world money, I would TOTALLY let both of my ch 15 cities and my ch 14 (will enter 15 this weekend) cities go for $6,000 each! I can start anew and build again. Hell, at those prices I could quit my regular job, start playing all 8 worlds and become a professional Elvenar player.I spoke to someone fairly recently who did in in 3 months. My best guess is $5,000-$6,000 USD.

I actually was a professional runescape player at one pointHell, at those prices I could quit my regular job, start playing all 8 worlds and become a professional Elvenar player.
I agree with your post but I would like to mention that the rewards from being in a tournament/spire FS can actually help you to progress if done right.If you're a casual player and want to focus a lot on your game progress, dont join a team with required spire, FA and tourney achievements.
