Choices and Consequences[]

Consequences of Previous Missions[]

If you did all three previous missions without being detected (or killing someone), he will be impressed.

If you killed anyone in the previous missions, he will state that you broadcasted your arrival, and later in the conversation he will argue.

If you have his dossier info, he'll be impressed, translating to a +2 relationship bonus after reciting his dossier info you've uncovered to that point.

If you are friends with SIE, he'll dislike you, for -1 relationship.

Consequences in Following Missions[]

During the Infiltrate Alpha Protocol Mission, Completing Marburg's dossier up to that point (his last intel is found inside the compound), lets you change his allegiance, as long as he likes you.

Being professional will impress him and having information on him also result in +reputation.

If you pick all options to gain +reputation, you should be at either 8 or 9 reputation with Conrad by this point with at least 66% dossier (its 8 if you got along with SIE in Moscow)

If you get enough -reputation with Marburg and make him hate you, it's possible to kill him during the Intercept Marburg at the Museum of Art mission, of course he will not show up in the final mission if you do this.
Being friends with SIE before meeting him (If you have done the Moscow hub before Rome.) makes him hate you (-1)

If you want to piss him off just act suave and throw in a couple of threats sometimes. Mike will say some amusing things to Conrad if you follow that line.


One of the options to respond to Professor Al-Bara's e-mail is to forward it to Mina, asking her to double-check the account. However, if the Al-Bara mission was your last of the initial 3 (CIA, NSA, Al-Bara) meeting with Al-Bara is the only mission available in Rome, and the only way to get her answer is to leave Rome and go to one of the other safehouses, then return to Rome.
