Each AI Warlord can also identify a main threat to its existence.

Likewise, if you and they share a common threat in the world, deals will be achieved on more affordable terms. Distance plays a part too; the further away a faction is geographically, the less relevant and valuable it becomes to an AI negotiator. How will the rest of the world react to the deal? If a deal with you impacts his diplomatic standing with other factions, you can expect the cost to rise in line with the severity.

Your Warlord now has a trustworthiness rating which can rise and fall in line with your behaviour, and this affects how much a Warlord respects you. Certain actions are viewed as treacherous — cancelling a ten-turn loan repayment for example, or breaking another major commitment.
Some AI personalities openly oppose treacherous behaviour, and will feel duty-bound to declare war on you. And because interpersonal respect plays a part in diplomacy, a faction changing hands between one Warlord and another can be a major catalyst for change. Their two factions trade, they lend each other funds from time to time, and trust builds between them.
However, a great general under the tyrant Dong Zhuo, one that Liu Biao has met many times in battle and who is now one of his major rivals, becomes dissatisfied with his lot in life. As time passes, the general fights side by side with Liu Bei, and the two form a powerful friendship. Liu Bei ultimately adopts the general as his son and heir. When Liu Bei passes away, the new heir steps up and assumes the mantle of Warlord, taking control of the faction.
One of your major rivals is now in command of a faction with which you used to be close. Under his leadership, deals become more costly to achieve, and the diplomatic relationship begins to sour…. A key change for diplomacy is the introduction of more granular negotiation. Liu Biao approaches Cao Cao and proposes a trade deal. In short, Cao Cao places a high value on his stallion, but a trade deal with Liu Biao just outweighs it.

Their factions are now trading to mutual benefit, and as a bonus, Liu Biao now has a fine new charger to ride into battle. A negative figure indicates that the Warlord perceives the offer to be valuable to you and wants you to make it worth their while, and they of course arrive at this figure according to the factors mentioned above.
With such an offer on the table, a new button will appear marked Make This Work. This is a down-to-brass-tacks shortcut which tells you what the deal is worth to the other Warlord — thus giving you a baseline to work from in the negotiation.
You might ask a Warlord for Military Access to his Commanderies, for example, which he places a very high value on. You make the request and it appears with a value attached in the negotiation panel. Vassal mechanics have expanded significantly.
The relationship between a Vassal State and its Lord is now multidimensional, offering many new benefits for both owning vassals and becoming one. The core benefit for a vassal lord is that his vassals pay him a healthy percentage of their gross income each turn.
