Espionage or spying involves a spy ring made up of individuals obtaining information considered secret or confidential without the permission of the holder of the information in order to benefit from that information, especially when playing the game of thrones. The chief spy is called a spymaster. In Westeros the master of whisperers is the king's spymaster. Spymasters and their spies are sometimes called "spiders".

Quentyn had begun to think that they might have done better to buy their own ship in the Planky Town. That would have drawn unwanted attention, however. The Spider had informers everywhere, even in the halls of Sunspear.—Thoughts of Prince Quentyn Martell
