With this order, you can investigate a hexagon, a community, unit, item, avatar or realm. You can investigate up to four of these with one order. Note that this investigation is not performed by a unit; you can think of it as paying the local thieves' guild for information.
Investigating a hexagon or community gives you a report in the Unit section of
the Status Report on the hexagon requested or the hexagon of the community
requested. The report includes the hexagon's terrain and loyalty, as well as
the names, identifications, and loyalties of all items, units, and communities
present in the hexagon. This order costs your treasury 5 gold per hexagon and
Investigating a unit, item or avatar tells you its location, loyalty, and
followers. The unit or avatar must be alive for this order to be successful.
This order costs your treasury 5 gold per unit, item and avatar investigated.
Investigating a realm gives you a report on the realm. This information is the
same as you would receive on each turn about your own realm: banner, treasury,
gold production, hexagons owned, etc. This order costs your treasury 10 gold
per realm investigated.
