|Description||the right to stay silent|
This document has left many people speechless.
For safety and (more often than not) to keep the jailer's piece of mind, some inmates in Godville are gagged. But this can't be done at the guards whims, thus gagging orders are issued.
This are small pieces of paper that ask for the approval of a prisoner's gagging. They must be signed by the bailiff in charge.
Usage on the civilian sphere
Gagging orders may also be requested by civilians. The procedure is similar but the intent is of a less professional kind.
We can only affirm that they're used in the kind of dungeons in which heroes are never sent.
