Baldur's Gate: Vice
Baldur’s Mouth, the city’s news carrier, provides a great service to people at every level of society. Town criers and printed broadsheets are its two methods of spreading news.
The city has used Baldur’s Mouth many times to spread word of new laws that the Council of Four passes, to broadcast holidays, and to communicate election results. Criers announce news of the affairs of kingdoms and nations throughout Faerún, opening every declaration by shouting. “*Harken, people of Baldur’s Gate, to Baldur’s Mouth! The land changes, and Baldur would have his people know!*”
Baldur’s Mouth is primarily funded by local advertising, and produces small pamphlets with store adds in addition to the news broadsheets. From time to time, the broadsheets of Baldur’s Mouth have included caricatures of important citizens, such as dukes or parliament members.
