    "By building alliances and friendships with other factions and empires, you become highly valuable as a friend and simply too dangerous as an enemy. When you have accumulated enough Diplomatic Victory points in the great game of galactic diplomacy, you become the dominant political force in the galaxy."

    So, how do I accumulate Diplomatic Victory points? Does any kind of trade count? Like, even if I just give someone a flat 1 dust in exchange for nothing? Are different deals worth more than others (alliance seemed to be worth a lot)? If I have peace, open borders, & cooperation agreements with everyone and everyone likes me, what else can/should I do to accrue points?

'Unfortunately' throughout the game some civilisations may have fallen at my hand, city states too, with the end result... for me I would not win.

Can you then cure vampirism and become a regular person, ditching all the effort and skill points put into vampire skills?

The dialog choices seem to offer a chance to shape the relationship with the other leader. However, the diplomatic tooltip hints never mention the responses.

As money is not an issue, I could easily hire lvl 3 advisors in all categories, but unfortunately the candidates I get often are only lvl 1 or lvl 2.
