I'm sorry for my english, I'm from Russia.
This is a speedrun of russian game "Мор. Утопия" known as "Pathologic" in other countries.
If you want to get character's own ending, you need to have all your adherents alive and well. When you cannot complete the day's main quest, one or two of your adherents can get ill. You need to have "powder" or "panacea" to cure them. You can't enter into house if an adherent got sick. There are no adherent's deaths in Bachelor scenario if you cannot complete day's main quest (Vlad Jr. can die in 8-th day if you will make a mistake, but if You missed 8-th day's main quest, he will be alive). Some of them cannot get ill, so it's enough to have 4 powders or panaceas in any combination.
The best route I could find for Bachelor's ending: Georgiy -> Victor -> shop near Lara's home -> Lara (take her quest) -> Isidor's home -> Alexandr -> Yulia -> shop near the theater -> Vlad -> shop between two Vlads -> Vlad Jr. -> Plesnya (not sure about this name, you can get a powder here) -> Rubin (Victor's home) -> Georgiy -> Maria's home (sleep until the third day) -> Laska (get a powder from her) -> Anna's home (sleep until the 9th day) -> Anna (take her quest) -> Lara (get a panacea) -> Anna (get a panacea and sleep until the 12th day) -> Heal Andrew -> Heal Pete -> Heal Victor -> Heal Georgiy -> get to the Cathedral and tell about your (I mean, Bachelor's) decision -> get out of the Cathedral and wait for the end of the day.
The main problem in the game is hunger. It'll kill you very fast if you don't eat. That's why I included three shops in the route. But it's not enough, becouse it's impossible to buy food for 12 days. However, there is a way to survive. There are many water barrels in the town. If you have empty bottles, you can fill them with water and drink. Each bottle will reduce your hunger by 1 percent and increase your tiredness by 3 percents. During the first day's route you have to find 10 bottles in trash. The eleventh bottle character has from the beginning. It allows to drink them 3 times. Hunger is reduced by 33 percents, but tiredness is about 100 percents. It means you have to sleep after that, becouse tiredness can kill you totally like hunger. When you sleep, time goes very fast, so you have to sleep when you can sleep. By the way, if you use an analgesic at bedtime, your health will increase while you are sleeping - that's why I didn't sell analgesics in the first shop. The fastest way to beat the game is to sleep at somebody's home having a water barrel nearby. I've chosen Maria's home becouse it's the closest suitable home near Georgiy's home (the end of the first day's quest), but it's also possible to use Eve's home (her home is opened even after... Ooops, spoilers... I mean, after the seventh day). After the third day I used the Anna's home becouse it's much closer to Laska, MUCH closer to Andrew and Pete, there is a barrel near her home and I had to take her quest on the ninth day anyway. But there is a problem: Anna is the Devotress' adherent, so she may get sick (randomly). I guess this route is the best to find 4 medicines, but there is a little chance to find 40 needles, nuts, lenses or something and exchange it to the powders. Little girls VERY rarely have powders and are ready to exchange it for 10 needles. If you are going to "speedrun" the game this way - good luck! You'll need it. I guess it's possible to survive fithout food and using only water barrels, but it'll be much more difficult and slower, becouse food doesn't force you to get ot of the home and go to the barrel. Bread is the best food in this game: it costs half the price of fresh meat/fish, but it decreases hunger at 24% (fresh meat/fish - 25%).
Unfortunately, I know nothing about differences between original (russian) "Мор. Утопия" and "Pathologic" versions (except the language, of course). Maybe there are some logical differences, fixed/new bugs or something else. I'd like to play it too, but it's not so easy to buy it.
I would like to thank:
