Who did you like ending the game with most? :D
Out of every romance (because with the girl choices you don't marry them) who did you like best?


By the way if I missed anyone just post the name and say you vote for them. Okay?

Honestly? I think of the marriages in the most detached manner possible because at her age, it creeps me out.

Well, if you pick Anciet, she'll be a lot older before that marriage comes about... :)

well at least in this game it says she waits a while before marrying no matter who you chose. in this game it says they wait until everyone recovers from the coranation.

I swear Banion is the person who gives you the most satisfaction when you successfully execute. Since he actually puts up a pretty decent verbal battle which you need to have the specific skills to counter and pull the nobles back to your side.

What determines who supports Elodie during the vote of no confidence, btw?

That's complicated! A lot of different things. :) Every noble has their own reasons for what they do, based on promoting their own interests.

Your father and your paternal uncle (your father's brother Armand) will always vote for you. Your maternal uncle (Laurent, Lucille's husband) tries to stay out of it, but he will vote for you if it comes to a tiebreak. Julianna will vote for you if she's around - if she's not there she can't vote, and if you gave the title to her brother Ignatius he abstains (because he's grateful to you but he also thinks you're nuts).

The Duke of Kigal is usually on your side becausae he thinks he has a good shot at marrying one of his kids to you. However, if you're engaged to Talarist, and you didn't dance with Linley, then he will probably turn against you.

The Duchess-Regent of Sudbury votes based on how badly you handled Ixion. If you gave up the province or executed Brin, she's against you. Otherwise she's for you.

Corisande, Duchess of Mead votes against you if you pissed off Kevan during the poisoner's trial. She votes *for* you if you disinherited Julianna, giving the title of Duke of Ursul to Corisande's husband Ignatius. Otherwise she stays out of it.

Arisse votes against you if you're engaged to Talarist, or you ticked Talarist off and are going to have border troubles later, or if you made a mess of the poisoner's trial. Fabian votes whatever Arisse votes.

If Brin is still there she votes against you because she's backing Banion. If you replaced Brin with Bennett he votes for you because he doesn't like Banion.

I've tried to get other marriage endings with Banion than the one where Elodie is tricked. I sort of like Banion, because he's a suitably nasty but not entirely person. (As far as I know).

I've never seen the you're in control marriage or the Brin marriage. If I let Elodie lean towards Banion at the ending, she just marries someone else.

Oh, Julianna voted against me once - but that was when I had the lumen crystal but refused to use it - twice.

Ah, forgot that one. See, it's complicated!

I suppose she always votes against you, then, since the only way to get Banion to insult you is to give away the province or to throw Brin out.

IIRC Banion can start trouble even if you only disinherited Brin and didn't kill her...

Brin, without Banion.

Honestly, the pastry duke. Either him or the foreign duke. I never got Banion/Brin as an ending, so I wouldn't know, and as for the others I didn't meet them in-game, so I didn't like them as much :lol:

Oh yeah, is there a reason why Banion seems to look regretful when he kills Elodie during the duel? Is there something we don't know about, or is he just going the typical "it's such a shame I have to dispose of a pretty girl" move?

Consider his political goals - killing Elodie is not going to make him a King. So what does he gain by winning?
