    A city for the birds.

    Discussion in 'Setting Development' started by Kata_Misashi, Sep 2, 2015.

    So I need some advice in building one of my characters hometown. I'm having trouble cause you see my character is not human... he's a humanoid bird (beak, talon feet, feathers, etc). Being more hawk-like I did some reach search and I see that hawks love to make their nests high on cliffs and canyons but it still needs to be 'city-like'... any thoughts?
    (Its a odd question, I know. I'm just... at a lost ^^;)

    not an odd question at all, a cliff city for a race of bird like people is actually pretty common in fiction writing. Also, humans have a long history of building cliff cities of our own. I would look up the "Myra rock tombs" and "Caunos City" in turkey. Racamadour in France, Ronda in Spain, and Al Hajara in Yemen.

    If you are looking for something a bit more modern, Oia on Santorini may work.

    Hope this all helps.
