I am playing the tutorial campaign with King Alfonso II of Leon. One of my counts has been annoying and have since made him dismantle his faction. Now my spymaster tells me that his heir was trying to assassinate him. My spymaster has been attacked himself and tells me this in a popup (see screenshot below). Unfortunately the only option I get is Expose him immediately!.
I don't want to expose of him.
I want him to continue his plot to kill the count. How can I do that?

So I want Rodrigo de Oviedo to kill Count Diego of Asturias.

1 Answer 1


Exposing him does not actually force him to abandon his plot. It will cause him to gain an opinion penalty (Dishonorable, -10) with everyone not involved in the plot and a BIG penalty to relations with his target (Attempted Murder, -200) but at no point does this event, by itself, cancel the plot. Of course, his target won't be pleased and might take action himself.

There isn't an option that doesn't involve him being exposed once he tries (and fails) to kill your spymaster though. You could prevent the initial discovery by having either no spymaster or a bad spymaster, but that could have... undesirable... side-effects.

  • Thanks! So there is no way to just ignore this event? (the red seal lights up when I hover over it bus does nothing on click). I prefer Rodrigo to not get an opinion penalty but I'll guess I'll take that then. Will people side with the person being targeted(count Diego)? I want to give him less power, that guy's an asshole. Thanks for the detailed answer.

  • Weird, one day (edit: still after 10 days) after the facts and they still like eachother. Screenshot: images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/544152440187947057/…

  • Weird. One day later I would assume the game hadn't caught up yet. Often takes a day or three for opinions to update and such, but after a week I would think it would catch up.
