Murder in Baldur's Gate
Following growing complaints from the Patriars that non-Nobles are dressing far above their stature the Parliament of Peers passes a new law introduced by Duke Torlin Silvershield. Under it only the nobles can wear luxury items such as gold, gemstone, silks, furs and bright colours.
At first The Watch advises people to remove offending items. As the days go on they become more and more forceful until reports of them ripping necklaces off and slashing fur coats of wealthy non-nobles being to surface.
None of the party is impacted by these laws so they have little to worry about.
