Kolvir to Scale

re: the post below

I took out the drafting software and sketched this quick profile to give some idea of scale for my own Eternal City. Twenty-five city blocks is based on a quick guess as to how many switchbacks a "carriage road" might have to make to cover the Kolvir vertical climb for supply wagons and visiting nobles.

There are real city examples of this sort of mountain city on a coast. Amber geography is not shocking or unusual.
