Let me preface with the fact that I have made like all the saves. Like 30 slots or so. I can go back to nearly any stage and adjust. Realistically i can even go as far back as selecting army over essence shielding but i like having the extra options that got me, and i feel like my battle results were pretty good already.
Way back in ardoheim, i did buy the supplier and the restaurant, for a net zero ProN.
Going through Sylvan, I chose Lynine to save the queens and Orilise for everything else.
In zirantia, i chose to support nobody in order to destabilize the region for biyue to step into the inevitable power vacuum.
Governing yhilin, I got ALL THE THINGS in the slums going by the time of going into eustrin, so im down to 5% personal and nothing left to use it on. I let qum do a research because why not, though it does delay robin's exams and therefore access to the magic forge. I picked yhilini magic before her exam research because i figured i probably need them both to proceed anyway so i may as well favor negotiation.
For the national house of petitions, in the 3rd round i picked up infrastructure, and in the 50% round i got succubus trade for the discount to 50% instead of 100%, and the magic standardization. When i get back from eustrin for the last 100%, i should have 120% to play with for border, mercs, immigration and so on.
Lots of relationship values are starting to lock in, and others are getting pretty high, so that may end up being a nonfactor compared to profits and hidden scores.
In eustrin itself, still a work in progress. Havent seen any major decision points yet. May not come in till the end like zirantia.
