OverviewEdit

Expression is the representation of the four ways you can “influence” NPCs. The four expression types are Demand Diplomacy Demand Icon, Reason Diplomacy Reason Icon, Inspire Diplomacy Inspire Icon and Flattery Diplomacy Flattery Icon. During a parley, expression is represented by small colored dots on the game board which you can spend using statement cards.


Player ExpressionEdit

Player starting expressions are determined by their race and class. For more information see Starting Cards: Race and Class Expression Types.

NPC ExpressionEdit

The expressions used by Civic Diplomacy NPCs are generally determined by their race and station. The following tables can be an initial guide to deck design for parleying NPCs with the caveat that individual NPC decks can vary greatly.


NPC Race Expression

Demand Races Diplomacy Demand Icon Reason Races Diplomacy Reason Icon Inspire Races Diplomacy Inspire Icon Flattery Races Diplomacy Flattery Icon
Dwarf High Elf Thestran Human Halfling
Vulmane Gnome Varanjar Qaliathari Human
Varanthari Goblin Lesser Giant Kurashasa
Wood Elf Kojani Human Dark Elf Half Elf
Orc Raki
Mordebi Human


NPC Station Expression

Demand Stations Diplomacy Demand Icon Reason Stations Diplomacy Reason Icon Inspire Stations Diplomacy Inspire Icon Flattery Stations Diplomacy Flattery Icon
Domestic Presence Academic Presence Clergy Presence Merchant Presence
Soldier Presence Crafter Presence Noble Presence
Outsider Presence

Thus, an Orc Clergy would be expected to have a deck comprised primarily of Demand and Inspire.


Conversation ExpressionEdit

Some types of conversations block one expression during parleying. Interview does not block any expressions.
