In my mind Athkatla from Baldurs Gate 2 is a walled city. It exists in a war-torn region, in a medieval high-fantasy setting, with a huge concentration of wealth and power. Ergo walled city
But now that I come to think about I can’t actually think of any PROOF that it’s a walled city. None of the maps have walls that I can remember, the overhead map seems wall-free, and none of the dialogue that I can rennet mentions walls specifically.
But how can this be? Surely raiders would rob the place blind and burn it to the ground in a week?
Maybe the walls are magical, created by the red wizards? Maybe they are metaphorical, the city is protected by the influence of the council?
Does anyone have any thoughts or evidence one way or the other. Walls? No Walls?
