Utility spy missions are various internal actions you may take with your spies. These missions, unlike those accessible under the attack screen, do not directly involve other warbands. Instead, they involve spending scrolls for some other good or service.
The success of a utility spy mission is determined by the ratio of spies to dens. The ratio required depends on the mission attempted. Should a utility spy mission fail, a number of spies will be lost to the effort. This ratio is:
Spies / Dens
Cost in Scrolls
The cost in scrolls of any given mission increases as your networth goes up. The current cost is displayed next to the mission name in the drop-down box.
Display of Missions
You will notice that under certain conditions the drop-down box in which you select the mission to execute shows some missions in yellow or red. Yellow indicates that you do not have enough runes to perform the mission. Red indicates that your spy ratio is insufficient to perform that mission.

||The prepare spy mission allows you to attack people in other areas. However, as long as your spies are prepared, others can attack you from other locations without having to prepare their spies. To prevent this, you may recall your spies, preventing others from using them at the cost of some scrolls and the ability to attack anywhere.
||The move north/south missions allow you to move from one location to another.
