A broadsheet is a printed publication, also called a newspaper, designed to inform the public about local, current events, including politics, gossip, and business news. They are published in most large metropolises that have access to government-backed printing presses. Broadsheets printed on older engraved-plate printing presses can only be published once every few weeks, while those published on the much more expensive and complicated movable-type presses can be published daily. The average broadsheet costs around 6 silver pieces.1

When a broadsheet covers international news, it usually utilises divination magic or a magical messaging system.2

A newspaper printed on smaller paper than a broadsheet is known as a tabloid.3
