The Use of Spies - 5

Foreknowledge of the enemy cannot be obtained through deduction during the battle, but can only be obtained by direct observation from within the enemy’s camp.

Players: Developers often use non-player characters (NPCs) to guard enemy positions. These NPCs are often so strong they cannot be beaten, and can see through any game mechanic that would otherwise hide players from other players (e.g., stealth attributes or skills). To gain foreknowledge with this restriction will take extra effort beyond placing a player in a location to observe the enemy from within.

When a player can successfully hide themselves within the enemy camp to observe and send reports to the main force, a leader can overcome the enemy at any time.
