Grue Posted January 29, 2018 Report Share Posted January 29, 2018 Not sure what's going on with the very large Aranaz based clique (with some sniped key students from colleges that are not rivals) I built but I'm getting a steady relationship drop between certain students without any of the involved (informed) students taking an action to knock down the relationships in question. Basically the root of it seems to be Rikildis von Kiep (who generally can be troublesome but again...no visible action to cause a relationship hit listed in the logs) and Basia Rydz vs Ana Flavia Bessa and Asmita Tidar. From the looks of things, they are getting hit with -1 relationship a day. I'm still mostly early game (week 5 and starting in with Cleanse & Remake), so the only way I have to boost relationships between students is the Gossip action (and that's a losing fight). I like to get informed of Morvidus first to keep an eye on everyone's favorite bullies, but I don't think there's a spell or action/ability that would be available this early in the game that would cause such a steady relationship hit, and I've never seen any AI behavior or similar mechanic in prior games where I've built a very large clique. The other oddity is that my Character's charm stat should be getting a +2 bonus from 'Emilia's Gift' and the 'Aura of Attraction' as well as the other stat/skill booster clique abilities like Vincent Ein's 'Cloud of Luck' or 'Theory over Practice' but they seemed to have konked out about he same time the clique infighting problem started (though I haven't lost access\bonuses from other clique abilities that take an action like 'Intense Studier'). These abilities were working before but not sure if some global mechanic/penalty is at play (that I have never seen before though with a lot of playthroughs). Hrm....on top of that I've seen to have lost a modifier from a Favor (-3% Chance of Discovery). Any ideas? Mechanic, bug, or some action I'm not seeing (the only emotion the character has is 'Alert' and I'm not sure where to find active hostile spell effects)? Edit- Weird. I had a save from the day after I successfully cast Cleanse & Remake (Intense Studier plus Durand's Grove makes that an auto roll even with crap starting stats) and under Matters of Concern to You I received the notice Warning: Your clique will break up due to low relationships. The only negative relationship between any clique members at that point was between Rikildis and Ana Flavia Bessa at a grand total of -1. My Character's relationships were at average 2 throughout the clique (and 1s but a few 4+s), and Rikildis and Ana had a 0 relationship on Athonos 28. On Pramidi 3 (the day after the Warning) all the passive clique boosts were removed (and the Character also lost the -3% Chance of Discovery bump from Favor as well). If it's an intentional mechanic, it just seems very punitive but still not sure what's going on after looking over the log. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
