Lord Senna

Lord Senna conversation[ | ]

Possible checks on: Etiquette; Intelligence; Streetwise; Charisma; Persuasion.

  1. Greetings
    • (hidden) [Etiquette]:[5] check, "Since Lord Gaelius doesn't have a heir..."
    • [Intelligence]:[7] + [Streetwise]:[5]
  2. "Which candidate do you support, my lord?"
  3. [Charisma] = [9], "Very true, mistakes can be costly." (if you fail this test the conversation will continue)
    • Success
      • "I'm only looking for what's best for the city, my lord."
      • (hidden) [Etiquette]:[5] check, [Persuasion]:[5], "I'm only looking for what's best for the city, my lord..."
    • Failure
  4. [Etiquette + Streetwise] = [8], "How fortunate that I'm not sharing my thoughts with a lesser man then..."
    • (hidden) [Etiquette]:[5] check, [Persuasion]:[5], "I'm only looking for what's best..."
    • (hidden) [Etiquette]:[4] check, [Persuasion]:[6], "Why the candidate of course..."

Lady Lorenza

Lady Lorenza conversation[ | ]

Checks on: Etiquette; Lore.

  1. Optional [Etiquette] = [4] check
  2. [Lore] = [3]
  3. Lorenza lay out the options
    • "I'm afraid so. What should I tell my master?"
    • "To quote someone experience in Maadoran politics, what will I be getting out of this?"
    • "Serenas is nothing but a puppet. Without someone pulling his strings, he just might crumble into a heap."
    • Persuasion + Trading = [13] (12-14 depending on answers in previous questions), "You have two options here..."

You can also gain her support by agreeing in supporting her own conspiracy against Strabos/Commercium full control. Note that this does not remove you from the Commercium, nor does it appear to lose you rep, at least immediately (possible that you get "less" rep at end of Maadoran Merchant questline). Siding with Lady Lorenza leads to 1 of 2 benefits: 1. Access to Levir's Healing Machine (after fighting him + 2 guards, medium fight); or 2. Large amount of gold (10,000); there is technically a third option - 3. Her "influence" - but unlike AG path, it doesn't do anything and she offers you previous options instead.


Legatus Pavola

Legatus Pavola conversation[ | ]

Possible checks on: Persuasion; Charisma; Trading; Streetwise.

  1. [Persuasion] = [5] or [Charisma] = [8]
    • [Persuasion] + [Trading] = [10], "We want what you want..."
    • [Streetwise] + [Charisma] = [15], "After what happened in Teron?..."

Reporting back to Strabos[ | ]

  1. To complete the quest, you need to convince Pavola and at least one of the nobles. For convincing all three, you will gain bonus Commercium Reputation
  2. If you fail to convince Pavola, Strabos will blackmail him. Talk to Pavola again and he will agree to Strabos' terms without any checks
  3. If all fails, you can always agree to Lorenza's offer to gain her support
