I only played up to character level 4. Maybe I expected too much too soon. But, I could've sworn that diplomatic relations were constantly deteriorating unless I kept it up with the gift giving. Did I misread it? If I'm wrong I'll freely admit it.
The main thing I'm asking is if there's any other way to improve relations, other than just endlessly lavishing gifts upon someone?
I wouldn't worry too much about that. If you really need to improve relations there is a way that is almost free. Make a trade of money of 100 and offer 100. It should work as a trade and if that doesn't work, offer 100 and trade 101. Ive done it a few times.
