Its obviously impossible to say anything before the final public version is released, but my planned set of choices (based on Fulminato's excel sheet) is:
First meeting: Hint to Esthera, Support Anak, Stay Silent, Extend an Olive Branch
Orc event: Maximize Sapience (prioritize civilization/add more knights), withdraw with Orcent vs Orgasmic champion, win everything else
Reduce Ziranthian presence (yes, a compromise, but I don't think 2 RP is too much to lose)
During Orgy send succubus to Mestan
Favor Rodakan dishes during last event
If my (admittedly very brief) calculations are correct, it hits all the points of the council and saves LL harem. Obviously no idea for the final calculation, but I suppose it will be ok.
The final question is about the investigations. The first is obviously Skullpounder, but for the second it depends how critical is the Tower Mapping for maxing Anak's event. If it can be maxed without it, then visiting Mestan is the clear choice.
