Spy  H

Historical background

It was a wise king or monarch that kept informed of what was going on in rival and neighboring communities and towns. Therefore it became necessary to hire Spies to secretly find out what was afoot.
Contrary to popular belief, most Spies were women. It was generally accepted that women could move in certain social circles more easily than men and using their inherent charm, could naturally coax more information out of trusted employees of rival houses.
These Spies were trained with the uses of various skills such as reading, writing and often speaking more than one language. They were often trained assassins and took oaths that obligated them to take their own lives rather than risk being caught by an enemy. Punishments varied, but they were almost always related to death. Torture was often used - and more surprisingly, when caught by an attacking army, spies were often used as a projectile for a catapult (in order to spread diseases).
Spies were usually paid high wages and were given the luxuries of castle life.

How does it work?

You go to your Instructor and ask for a task. You can only have one active task at any moment. If you are free to take a task the Instructor gives you an area name and a target. Go to that area, locate your target while being invisible and close behind him, and use the Job Log on him. On success you read along with your target. On failure the target notices you and escapes.
