In the foothills near the northern mountains, the city of Endoth is sandwiched in between a normal river, and the one running out of the Garden, which occupies a fairly large section of the north eastern city, creeping up into the mountainous forest that sprawls out towards the east. The castle is considered to be the people’s as well as the royals, and is always open for visitors who feel compelled to make their way all the way uphill. The flatter, easier to navigate areas of the city are populated by markets and housing for the less affluent, who can easily be distinguished by their less dense calf muscles. No, I’m kidding. That’s not part of the world building. On the southern edges of the city and to the west, ruins of the old city can still be seen, mostly untouched due to fear of misfortune, but surrounded nonetheless by opportunistic farmers willing to risk a little wyrd.

Yeah, so I don’t have a lot of time to do art for myself, but I wanted this one in the portfolio so whatever!
Here is a map of the fantasy world this city belongs to:
