Tips For Triangle Strategy’s Scales Of Conviction Voting System
It probably happened to you. You thought you made a big call in Triangle Strategy, only to have your entire party vote against the story path you wanted to take. Do not worry.

To choose your story route, you must adjust to the thoughts and feelings of your friends. Just like you decide where to eat after a midnight bar crawl!
A key turning point in Triangle Strategy, Libra of persuasion comes into play.
This system is simple at first glance: for each major story decision, you must convince the majority of the main party members to vote for one of two options. While there is a golden path in the game, the narrative feels consistent no matter which path you choose to take, so don’t get too stressed out if you choose the “wrong” option. But if you want to experience the system to its fullest, start learning about each of the main characters.
Also, remember to always complete the research sections carefully.
If the dialogue option is disabled when you are negotiating with a party member, it is because you have not spoken to the right NPC to get the information you need. Be careful when trying to change a group member’s mind. After you complete the persuasion attempt, they have already made their decision and can no longer influence you. So save your game before trying to convince anyone.
This is not going to be a prescriptive guide to choosing dialogue options that no one will remember by the end of the blog. Also, I feel like it spoils the fun of feeling like you’re having a real conversation with the characters. Rather, it’s my understanding of each character’s particular ethics and values, what they may or may not like. Oh and remember -the blocked choice is not always correct.
Here’s what I’ve learned from chasing my group members and yelling “TALK ME.”
Frederica is a strong-willed noblewoman whose concerns are very moral. She cares about ethical choices. Arguments like “our enemies can kill us” are unlikely to move her.
I always save it for last because your steward is awesome. I mean it in the most gentle way possible, but he very rarely changes his mind. Always use logic and back up any facts you find during the research phase. Regardless of who or what has to be sacrificed, House Wolffort remains his top priority.
This healer is a worldly woman who wants to make a choice that will allow the group to survive another day. Gila is logical but much easier to convince than Benedict. As long as you have a plausibly good plan to get the group out of the mess they’re in, it will reliably vote for you.
Prince of Glenbrook is another character who makes decisions with his heart, not his head. Logical appeals may act on him, but they must pursue ethical goals. He cares deeply for the welfare of his friends, his nation, and justice. However, he is not as strong-willed as Frederica. Find some solid evidence and he’s inclined to trust your judgment.
Hewett is a member of the royal guard and Roland’s protector. The question of the prince’s safety would arouse her interest. She is also a patriotic citizen who cares about the entire nation of Glenbrook as a place and ideal. Keep that in mind and you’ll be able to justify why your preferred outcome deserves her vote.
Erador is the third character in the squad, driven by emotions and justice. However, he is also a pragmatic and military man. He will often choose to protect the people living in Wolffort’s lands.
With a few key exceptions, House Wolffort’s spy is usually in an undecided faction. While she may be easier to influence than her adoptive father, Benedict, she still has her own values. Choose calls for pragmatism, not emotions. If you can find information to help with the logistics of your preferred plan, she’s more likely to vote a certain way.
