What possible real world models might be worth looking at for inspiration?
The West (especially Loskalm, which particularly interests me) seems to have a strong interest in magical architecture. Might this result in some sort of geomantic or runic principles being used in city layouts? What form might that take?
Might there be a form of caste segregation in the cities (at least in some areas)? Perhaps something like a layered city, with commoners in the outermost layer, then soldiers/knights, then wizards, then lords in the innermost core.
Any other considerations I may have missed would be appreciated too, as would any examples of detailed western city write-ups I might not have found.
