Crusader Kings 3 – Secrets Guide – All Secrets
Characters acquire Secrets when they do something that is a Crime or frowned upon. Secrets can be discovered through random events or via the Find Secrets spymaster task. If a secret is discovered the character who uncovered it has two options. One option is to expose the secret, which will apply various negative effects upon the target based on how serious the Secret is. The other option is to blackmail the target. If the target agreed the character will gain a Weak Hook if the secret is Shunned and a Strong Hook if the secret is Criminal. If the target refuses the secret will be exposed.
