Spy / Prostitute /Black Mailer

Post by Alex486 » Tue Sep 29, 2015 1:43 pm

Not sure about the name, but in war women have been used to turn men to traitors. Why not create a women unit that does not kill any units but converts any unit it attacks without fail unless the unit is one of those super loyal units like Spartans and Hussar?

They would have hidden capabilities like the assassin, but would not die after attacking.

It should cost much, being pretty fragile and it should be sacrificed in the process of converting.

Is this realistic? I have not heard of such things in medieval times. I thought that women were not used in such roles until the more modern era (i.e. the Napoleonic Age).
Thanks!

Women have been used since the early days to win favor, black mail, steal intelligence. I'll try to find some examples from the Roman and Medieval periods.

Okay, i was just wondering since I had not heard of any specific examples before the time around the American Revolution; and was unable to find any.
Thanks!

There is the Greek play Lysistrata. Basically, the play performed in Athens 411BC is a comic account of a woman's extraordinary mission to end the Peloponnesian War by persuading women to with hold sex until the men agree to end the war. Not quite spy/prostitution but Greek plays are often based on some type of truth.

Hehe

I like this :lol:

Let's open to not strict battlefield units...


If we introduce General/leader units
And alliance halls
may think about some use for it..

Alternatively we ma introduce charm.
Charmed units refuse to fight...
For x turns
(turn neutral?)
