The scope of counter-espionage
#1
If I'm the Elves, trying to sabotage the WI's seapower in the sea of Terror (because elves are sneaky like that) and the Dwarves are running a counter-espionage to protect their mighty navy, is the Dwarven agent eligible to catch my saboteur even though he isn't targeting the Dwarves?

Is it the same if I'm sabotaging the defense of a PC where a third kingdom is doing counter-espionage?

Also does an agent on counter espionage ignore an allied kingdom's agents?

As far as I know the counter-espionage protects a particular kingdom's navy in a sea, not all navies in the sea.

A counter-espionage on PC however, if I recall correctly, is effective versus all agent activities, even allied agents.

I don't understand your question.

Based upon recent experience, the agent cannot perform a mission for another kingdom in a PC. The order fails. I don't understand why you would want to perform an agent mission against an ally, btw.

My concern is that you might inadvertently interfere with an ally.

e.g. you ask an allied agent to kill an emissary in your town at the same time you have a standing order to protect the town's defenses with a counter-espionage.

I was worried that your agent will end up capturing your ally's agent.

From what I understand, counter (920) won't impact an assassination attempt. Only guard (925) will do that.

Does it protect high council seats?

Is that a legit question?
