I wanted to start a thread to discuss some of the changes that could be done on cities. I tried my best to find one, but to my chagrin, was unable to do so.
One of the things I always found immersion breaking in the series, was the empty cities. Sure there are people here and there, but overall, places seemed empty. A large city like Baldurs Gate seemed empty, or at least quiet in my opinion. What I would want are more populous places. People walking around, talking etc. Limitations exist to how much can be done, but even people walking around would lighten up places a lot. Also inns housing the same people day in, day out seems ridiculous... Sure some dwarves are drunks, but why are they there all the time?! Plus, it would be interesting (albeit annoying at times I'm sure, but would help with immersion imo) to have inns be full at times. People come and go, yet there's always room to house 6 people. Maybe only have room for some? Or none at all at times? Just a suggestion.
So how could the cities be improved my fellows?
