Beautiful. Not many cities are that organized, with such a specific style (concentric circles). Love the layout.

Wow, this is so impressive and beautiful!

I think this must be about the biggest D&D city I've ever seen as a map.

Beautifully done and well thought out !  I love your concept of urban "creep", larger circles. Very efficient.

Absolutely fantastic design. I would absolutely love to be standing over a far-off plateau and seeing this work of art of a desert city in the distance with it's (presumably) ascending middles and the rich parts of town shining like jewels.

I have to talk to you or Maximeplasse about a commission for my city of Reinwall sometime. Both of your guys work is astounding.

I would love to read the history behind this city!  It would have had to been laid out like this from the beginning!  Actually...I can see how it could have been modified over time...  But I still would love to see the history behind it!  (I think I've said that already, ha ha)

I haven't thought much about a background story. Probably once a small trade town that evolved over time; circles are maybe seen as a sign of perfectness.

That would explain all the circles.  I love the design!  I always love looking at your work!  It's very inspiring!  You've probably been asked this before so I apologize ahead of time if that's so, but how long does it typically take you to create a city or just map in general?  (I assume it's more for say...cities than geography.  Or the other way around.)

Thank you.
A city map takes usually several hours to complete.
