If you haven't read/caught up or completed the show you are reading the walkthrough about, please be aware of spoilers.

The Eternal City walkthrough exists to help others make right choices for their game. Choices you make lead to different paths and ! achievements leading to several different outcomes. This walkthrough is incomplete as some choices have not yet been explored. If you have anything to contribute to it, please do so.

Note: If it says "No effect" after an option, it means that this option does not trigger an immediate achievement. If it triggers a different path, the "No effect" can be replaced with "Path A/B/C".

If there is no info after an option, it means that that option has not yet been explored.
