newspapers
 
one of the things i do in my d&d games is print up fake fantasy newspapers when the party arrives in a new city.  it's a quick and easy way to introduce numerous possible plot hooks all at once, and if the party stays in the city for an extended period of time, then you can mention their own exploits in the paper as well to show how their actions have an actual effect on the world.  plus, they're just fun to make. 

i've uploaded a .zip file with three newspapers.  i made them specifically for patreon, so you can use them in your games if you want, or just use them as inspiration to make your own.

the artwork is not mine, it is from old medieval artwork currently in the public domain.
