Utility, Morality, and Liberty Explained – How to choose the right answers in Triangle Strategy

How do I know I'm not leading everybody to the worst outcome possible?

A big part of Triangle Strategy is knowing about the weight of your convictions. Depending on your answers and how you choose to go about major decisions, Serenoa’s convictions can lean toward one of three concepts: Utility, Morality, and Liberty.

Utility, Morality, and Liberty are philosophies. In Serenoa’s case, they shape his beliefs, decisions, and the consequences he has to face. During times where you have to convince people during Scale votings, the strength of your conviction affects how well (or if) you can persuade them to the choice you want. People who share Serenoa’s philosophies can also be recruited into the army as a playable unit.

Every time dialogue options appear, there are always three. They each represent one of the three philosophies mentioned. You can better understand what convictions you’re forming if you understand what Utility, Morality, and Liberty mean and what answers might tip the scale toward one of them.

  • Utility means sacrificing the few for the good of the many, like sacrificing a oneself for the sake of the kingdom. During times where hard judgment is needed, it will be easier to persuade people to follow your words.
  • Morals are what we, as a society, objectively think is good and bad, like how punishing evil is just. Morality in Triangle Strategy means doing the "right" thing using any means necessary. It's not about personal morals.
  • Lastly, Liberty is the capacity to speak or take action with no fear or weakness. It's the ability to take risks, damn the consequences. If you choose Liberty options when you consult the scales, prepare for difficult battles.

Still confused on what answers add points to which philosophy? Let’s use the photo below as an example.

Using our definitions above:

  • “It’s the first step towards true harmony among our three nations,” is for Morality.
  • “It will benefit all nations involved,” is a Utility answer.
  • “I can’t say whether this bodes well...” is you being fearless enough to tell a foreign dignitary about your dangerous thoughts. That’s Liberty.

During parts where you consult the Scales of Conviction, however, the Utility, Morality, and Liberty choices are colored-coded. Yellow is Utility, Green is Morality, and Red is Liberty. Choosing a route not only affects your story path, but it will also give you a huge point boost for that conviction.
