Chapter 2 ends with a summit in Ardford representing the major powers of Arclent, discussing what to do about the Incubus King's failed attack on Ardoheim. Simon and company accompany the Yhilin delegation and attempt to influence the voting so that the result is favorable to their plans.

Note that it's recommended to talk to the Ardoheim ambassador each day, but never tell him how you'll vote.

Bear in mind that to fail, a vote only needs to have more votes not in favor ("nay" and "abstain" count the same).

If the field How to change is empty, that means that you can't alter the vote, no matter what you do.

Day 1

Declaration of War

Gathered representatives, do we vote to go to war with the Incubus King?

Ardoheim Abstain

You want this motion to fail.

Representative Default vote How to change
Ardoheim Yes
Yhilin Ask.
Aram Yes Talk to, choose “Unpeople are veterans too” (recommended) or “Gain leverage over the Church”.
Zirantia Yes Talk to, choose “We'll do our best” then “Yhilin may not agree to support Zirantians” (also yields +1 Zirantia from talking to him after final vote). Or, agree to vote for an unspecified defense pact addition later (not recommended; you can't keep the promise).
Darghelon Yes
Church of Ivala Yes
dwarves Yes Have invested in their embassy, ask. You can't ask for this and a yes on the Defense Pact motion (not that that matters).
Ghenalon No
merchant guilds Yes 10,000 ProN bribe. (Also yields -1 Megail.)

Relationship effects for defeating: +2 Yarra, +2 Qum, +2 Nalili, +1 Vhala.

Day 3

Advanced Alliance

Church of Ivala Abstain
dwarves Yes Have invested in their embassy, ask. You can only ask for one changed vote this day.
Ghenalon No
merchant guilds No Ensure the motion will fail even with his yes. (This nets you 100,000 ProN from him.)

If the motion fails without a yes vote from the Guilds representative, he will give you 100,000 ProN if you speak to him afterward.

Orc Extermination

Resolved: that the nations of Arclent form a collaborative task force to exterminate all orcs within their borders.

This motion passes by default, but you can make it fail.

Best possible results

Whether or not you invested in the dwarves' embassy during Megail's visit to Aram will have significant effects on the results of the summit.

If you invested in the dwarves' embassy

You can get the New Unpeople motion to fail, stop the Orc Extermination, and open the War Vaults (three out of three).

  • To do so, you need to have told the Aramite ambassador "Unpeople are veterans too" on Day 2 (this way you get his full support on Day 3, provided that you visit him the night before in his suite and later in the Blademaster Guild). Also, you need to at least have convinced the Yhilini ambassador of your efforts to help the poor, or (somewhat counter-intuitively) agree with Darghelon's ambassador to vote yes on the Unpeople mobilization. Accomplishing both, however, would be ideal, saving you at least 100,000 ProN.
  • Agreeing with Darghelon's ambassador to vote yes on the New Unpeople motion means you will need to bribe the Guilds' representative with 10,000 ProN to ensure the motion fails. However, you more than recoup this cost with Darghelon's full support in Day 3.
  • On Day 3, have the dwarven ambassador vote yes on the War Vaults motion. You should already have enough votes against the Orc Extermination motion. On the other hand, without the dwarves' vote on the War Vaults motion, you will need to spend 120,000 ProN to ensure it passes.
  • Only convincing the Yhilini ambassador of your efforts to help the poor without agreeing to vote yes on the New Unpeople motion with Darghelon (or vice versa) leaves you one vote short on either Orc Extermination or War Vaults, depending on where you apply the dwarves' vote. You can remedy this by either bribing the Guilds' representative with 100,000 ProN, or by funding the Ghenalese expatriate assistance program to the sum of 120,000 ProN, depending on where you need an additional vote.

If you didn't invest in the dwarves' embassy

You have to choose between stopping the New Unpeople motion and opening the War Vaults.

    • Opening the War Vaults requires Darghelon's voting support on Day 3; without it, you will be one vote short.
    • To obtain Darghelon's support, you need to have agreed with Darghelon's ambassador to vote yes on the Unpeople mobilization measure on Day 2. However, this guarantees the measure's passage.
  • If desired, defeating the Orc Extermination motion without Darghelon's support is still possible, provided you bribe the Merchant Guilds' ambassador with 100,000 ProN.
