The Gilded City

To its inhabitants, it is, of course The City, as central and singular as the world itself. Those beyond its walls more often refer to it as The Gilded City.

And indeed, the city is quite literally gilded. The spells worked into the delicate traceries of gold on its walls make them considerably stronger, enabling sky-scraping towers to be built. Towards its center, the city has expanded upward to a considerably degree, with numerous bridges interconnecting the towers.

The city was originally built near a series of massive gold mines, enabling its ostentatious display of wealth. However, gold has grown increasingly expensive, and the outer, ungilded areas of the city are expanding much more quickly than its glittering center.
