Faction Rep Tips
I've had a few people ask me about how to get enough rep for all factions in order to get the leader endings, so I'm going to try and summarize what I did.

Please note that the strategies I list here are not the only way to get these ends, and in some case the MC's personality or house can effect the choices that appear so there may be better choices than I saw when I took these notes.

Choose Your House Wisely: The house you start out with gives a small boost with that house's rep at the beginning of the game. If you find that there's a particular house that you're struggling to earn rep with on one of the routes, try matching their house on a replay.

I personally found that on Randal's route, it was hardest to earn rep with the Golgotha, while on Heath's and Markus' route it was hardest to earn rep with the Mavvar. That said, I was still able to get the leader end on Markus' route by playing a Golgotha, so by no means does your house make or break whether you can reach that end.

Night Out One: recommended visits: Beach House, Saturnalia, Hotel
  • Mavvar Rep: Beach House -> Mingle with the other Mavvar -> Warm and Friendly;
    Randal Route Only: Talk to Jack -> "It's not a big deal." -> any choice -> "Sounds like he had it coming."
  • Golgotha Rep: Saturnalia -> Approach the younger group -> "Er... I've never seen him before in my life" -> "Listen everyone... I know Markus, and this man isn't Markus." -> either choice -> "You have my sympathies."
  • Iscari Rep: Hotel -> Talk to the Iscari in the lobby -> Jump in and offer my thoughts

Night Out Two: recommended visits: Saturnalia, Beach House
  • Mavvar Rep: Randal Route Only: Beach House -> talk to Josquine -> "You're on!" -> "I'll keep it as a momento"
  • Golgotha Rep: Saturnalia -> Talk to the Patrons -> Do my best to charm them -> fat, lithe or muscular suggestions get a small Gol increase

If you agree to join Andrei, Morgan will approach you and offer to visit the dreams of one of the factions to increase your rep in exchange for you getting her a meeting with him. I strongly recommend agreeing to work with Andrei for this reason.

Night Out Three: recommended visits: Beach House, Saturnalia, Hotel
  • Mavvar Rep: Randal Route only: Beach House -> Mingle with the other Mavvar -> Join the storytelling -> about Randal and the hunters
  • Iscari Rep: Saturnalia -> Talk to the patrons -> suggest the star either join the iscari and stand out, or speak with Saorise;
    Hotel -> Approach the agent -> either polite choice -> "The love you take is equal to the love you make."
  • Morgan: chose the faction you need the most rep with for her to poke. The increase does not occur until after you've spoken to Andrei about her.

Night Out Four: recommended visits: Beach House, Saturnalia, Hotel
  • Mavvar Rep: Beach House -> Mingle with the other Mavvar -> "Sure let's go."
  • Golgotha Rep: Saturnalia -> Talk to the patrons -> be sympathetic, if you're a Gol, agree to take the drugs with them
  • Iscari Rep: Hotel -> Approach the woman -> be polite and encouraging, suggest she back off and entice her paramour;
    Abattoir -> Talk to the Iscari -> Dance with them

Night Out Five: recommended visits: Hotel, Graveyard
  • Iscari Rep: Hotel -> Talk to the Iscari in the lobby -> Discuss ambitions to lead
  • Morgan: Visit the Graveyard to fullfil Morgan's deal.

If anyone still needs a walkthrough (https://naisgamepalace.wordpress.com/2020/05/15/red-embrace-hollywood/ ) I wrote it with the help of this guide, thank you very much for that deadmanbell!

i don't know what i'm doing wrong but i got Iscari rep just abit over half way [because i wanted that end with Heath] and i got shot!? i even checked here to make sure i han't missed any chances for some rep [i did increase the other houses but they were under the iscari]... is it because i picked the 'leader' options from the iscari agent and randal that i got shot? if i try to increase the iscar-rep without picking those options does anyone know if you still get shot?

Not sure if something is glitched on my end, but Heath iv was unlocked for me after just completing Heath iii (siding with Andrei). Then again, during Heaths route my PC crashed (power died) and I lost almost all progress in the gallery for all the routes, so... idk.

That aside, thanks so much for this guide. The Faction rep section is especially helpful if you're aiming for a specific faction without being part of their clan.

Thank you so much for making this! I could not figure out what I was doing wrong. This was a HUGE help. I love the game and the characters so I can't thank you enough for this,

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe the most important conversation options to declare your intent is the one you can have when you talk to Randal at the beach house (during any of the nights out that he's there), and then ask him to support your bid for leadership.

I'm having issues getting the leader ending on Markus' route as a Golgotha. Can I ask what you did to do that? I have all three houses rather high. Gol and Mavvar are about 3/4 full and Iscari is over half. I definitely hinted at my ambitions to rule with the Iscari, but is there some other dialogue I might be missing to get the "my rebellion" option? It's the only Markus ending I'm missing beside the special one, and I'd like to do it as a Gol. Just feels like I might be missing something somehow.

For Randal's leader variant end, I went to the beach house every night I and had my Mavvar rep bar well over 3/4 full, and I had the other factions more than half full.

Devs at one point stated that to get the leader end you need to declare your intentions, so also make sure that you ask Randal to support your bid for leadership, and imply it on any conversation choice that arises.

In Randal's route specifically, you'll know you're on the right track on the beach scene near the climax where you get the kiss/hug cg. After he asks if you're still on the same side, he'll go on to say that he believes you have enough support from all the factions to lead

I've been trying to unlock the leader variant of Randal's 4th ending but to no avail.. I can't seem to get the "my rebellion" option despite having a high faction rep for every house. Does it need to be max house rep or what? I'm playing as a Gol btw. Any help is appreciated!

i can't seem to get randal 1 & 4 despite having high reps for both factions?
