In the world I'm currently working on, there are several species of sentient creatures: humans, elves, dwarves, merfolk, centaurs, and avians (winged humanoids). I need to figure out how I could have a capital city that allows all of these species to live side by side.
To clarify a few things:
- Centaurs are the tallest, and dwarves are the shortest. Centaurs are (currently) about a few feet taller than the average human. Dwarves are around 4 feet
- The merfolk that would live in the city are called Shallows. They are slightly based off of dolphins and whales, being able to breathe out of water and hold their breath for a long time. Drying out is of no issue.
- The technology of this world is at the same level as ours.
