"Vitality and intelligence. What would we do without them? Especially if we're spies, diplomats, or pirates."
Vital Intelligence can be obtained by combining two pieces of Strategic Information, or through intelligence networks.
Vital Intelligence has the following uses:
- Deliver it to The Dark-Spectacled Admiral in London by doing the Submit Vital Intelligence action for +1 x Supremacy: London and +350 x Echo.
- Deliver it to The Voracious Diplomat in London by doing the Provide Vital Intelligence action for a random outcome:
- Purchase an Element of Dawn in Grand Geode for 50 x Supplies, 1 x Vital Intelligence, 7 x Crew and 1 x Memoirs: a Sun-Stroke.
- Purchase a Dawn's Law, with the identical condition with the aforementioned Element of Dawn deal, plus a The Figurehead of the Eater of Names, a Dread Surmise, and have Objective: Kingdom = 1 (having visited and scouted Aestival).
Whether you give it to The Admiral or The Diplomat, you will receive +3 x Admiralty's Favour. It's worth keeping in mind that while the diplomat pays more, one of the outcomes will keep increasing the Supremacy: The Dawn Machine. If that happens enough times it will bring rather severe negative consequences - it MAY also bring you a surprisingly positive consequence - but in any case caution should be taken with the diplomat.
Their allies are indeed dangerous.
