How To Get Galerius Elected
To get Galerius elected as Magistrate, you will first need to complete the following quests and tasks:
- Figure out how to find Silphium Resin and give it to Lucretia to help Lulia
- Speak to Lulia after she has healed and figure out how to save Ulpius. Save Ulpius.
- Figure out how to stop the assassin and save Fabia.
- Then, you will need to find a cure for Rheumatism
- You need to speak to Vergil in the Market and figure out who has been threatening him.
- Finally, you will need to find a way to get Malleolus to drop out of the election.
Once you have done all of this, trigger a time loop however you'd like. After you exit the time loop and speak to Galerius again, you will need to choose "I'm ____ and I need you to take care of some things urgently". You should then choose all of the errands that are available to pick.
When Galerius runs off to complete these errands, you can either follow him or wait at the entrance of the market for him to finish his tasks. Once he finishes his tasks and Malleolus has dropped out of the election, Galerius will nominate himself as a challenger to Equitia near the Market entrance.
Check With the Citizens Who They Are Voting For
After Galerius nominates himself, you will need to go around all of the citizens in the city that are able to vote. As it's historically accurate, women are not allowed to vote. We've listed the male citizens and who they're going to vote for if you've done everything right so far:
- Desisus will vote for Sentius (unless you bribe him with Denarii)
- Rufius will vote for Galerius after he cures his Rheumatism
- Vergil will vote for Galerius after he puts an end to the threats Vergil had been recieving.
- Domintus will not vote, he's a little mad that Malleolus dropped out
- Horatius will still vote for Sentius
- Georgius will vote for Galerius as he saved the life of his friend Fabia
- Ulpius will vote for Galerius as he saved his life. Also, Galerius would have freed him and Lulia from Malleolus.
Start the Election
Once you have 4 out 6 votes (Domitus will not vote), you need to find Equitia. She will be near the market entrance. When you speak to her, pick the following options:
- What's the status of the election?
- Can we start the election now?
- Holding it early may prevent conflict between voters
She will agree then announce that the election will begin. The citizens will start to head to the amphitheatre near Duli's cell. Follow the other citizens to find your way there.
Follow them and all you will need to do is watch as the election takes place. If there are enough votes for Galerius, he will win the election.
All of the smaller quests that you complete in The Forgotten City lead up to possibly getting Galerius elected (if that is what you choose). We have a few guides that can help you through some of the quests and challenges in the game. We have one that shows you how to get the flower and another that helps you figure out which character type you should choose.
