The Sharn Inquisitive or The Inquisitive is Sharn's local newspaper. It is printed weekly on Sul and distributed via city mail. Readers turn to the Inquisitive for local news which some say reads like local gossip. The Inquisitive also features an opinion page which hosts heated debates on important city issues. A subscription to the Inquisitive costs 3gp annually. Though issues are not sold individually, it is easy to find discarded copies a few days after their publication.
The current publisher, Haftak ir'Clarn is a distant cousin of Lord Ruken ir'Clarn, a member of Breland's parliament who is known to express opinions and viewpoints in opposition to King Boranel. This family connection has led to some critics claiming that The Inquisitive is biased and goes out of its way to attack the Brelish crown.
