Route Branching Influenced By Prior Choices

Our team has tried, over various gameplay sessions, to figure out how the quest branching is determined, but were unable to find a conclusive answer, as there too many factors in play. It is even possible that choices from previous chapters might affect this.

That being said, in the chart below you can see two separate playthroughs we underwent where the routes diverged & the only difference was the massage we chose at Madam M's.
