Successfully Blackmailing or Bribing a Noble unlocks the 'Open Gates' action. If successful, the gates to the city are opened and the next person to attack them while it is active will have a HUGE advantage!

An icon is displayed above a city with its gates opened for the player that performed the Open Gates action only, however whoever attacks them first will get the advantage and the gates will be closed after that battle ends.

To enable the 'Open Gates' action in your dialogue, fulfill the below requirements:
  • Successfully Bribe or Blackmail one of your target's Nobles
  • Bribed or Blackmailed Noble is not a part of your own family
  • Both your Noble and the targeted Noble are located in the Keep of the player whose gates you're trying to open
