A Spy is a full time professional and as such is much more skilled in the arts of espionage than her Diplomat predecessor.

The most inoffensive skills in a Spy's repertoire are her ability to investigate cities - revealing detailed information, and the establishment of embassies. However, if your Spy has gained herself a reputation for clandestine behaviour she will be executed if she tries to establish an embassy.

She can also be used to: poison the water supply of an enemy city (reducing the population); steal specific technology; and sabotage predetermined city targets (note: sabotaging improvements in a capital or sabotaging City Walls increases the risks of capture). A Spy can also infiltrate a city and incite a revolt.

A Spy can also be of aid on the battlefield - sabotaging enemy units as well as bribing them to change allegiance.
