* ForgottenRealms has a lot of CloakAndDagger stuff. The most interesting case is Inselm Hhune, a member of Knights of the Shield inner circle. For supporting Tethyr's new queen he was given a duchy not requiring much ruling and the post of spymaster. The fun part is that Lord Hhune quietly hates his king (he planned to marry the queen himself), but knows that Haedrak works with Harpers opposing his semi-secret society and got more than enough damning information on him. Since he has no clear idea ''how much'' the king is aware of his personal spy network, Lord Hhune just to be on the safe side surrenders more information that he'd like to, which in turn raises the risk of infiltration.
* In StarFrontiers, the Sathar are more likely to operate in this manner than directly against player characters. They recruit willing agents and sometimes brainwash others to act as saboteurs and informants. They are known for their ability to hypnotize people into seeing things from their point of view. Therefore, an unsuspecting person may act normal until it is time for him to carry out his function. The backstory explains that the Sathar realized that they could not defeat the United Planetary Federation in space combat, and thus chose a more indirect way to fight them.
