    Thinking about Perkins detailed description of Baldur's Gate some more, it really sounds like a Hell on Earth, in D&D terms: a rigid, militarized plutocracy ruled by corrupt Dukes. Gave it a violent Lawful Evil cast of character. I could see BG being the springboard for a...descent...

    As that is set over 100 years ago in the setting, and the political situation is completely different these days, probably not.

    It's not completely different. It's still ruled by a ducal council. The Dukes may have become more evil over the years, but what would you expect?

    The point is that Perkins goes into great detail about the NPCs who hold those positions currently in the late 15th century DR, and the work the WotC has put into figuring out the current situation: which is completely unrelated to the DMsGuild product set in the mid-14th century DR. The only reason Perkins would have spent this much energy on the topic, behind the scenes, would be if it is relevant to his job, namely writing the big Adventure Path for the year
