They were right in the middle of city parks and planters. The NPCs must have either been very unobservant or their moms told them not to go in because Villains always made their lairs there. After the heroes cleared one out, the city never secured it. and more villains moved right in.

Further the cave system was so massive that any earthquake would have sunk the city beneath the waves.

If we are going to have something like that here...I want dwarves and the mines of Moria. AND the Balrog!
Rip Van Winkle shows that dwarves are an immersive part of the region's culture.

"Thorin gave Captain Bilbo a mithil coat."
"That was a kingly gift!"
"I never had the heart to tell him, but it's worth was greater than Astoria."

We are talking about a city that managed to lose an entire district because their mayor made a deal with a death god.

That's the Hollows. And Fautline. And parts of the Rikti Warzone.

Being built atop an ancient mystic city probably means Paragon's gonna have a pretty large number of caves that nobody with their sanity and common sense is interested in exploring.

I'm hoping there will be a big enough cave for a dragon to have her hoard of books under the Main Library in Alexandria.

Plot twist the Dragon is the head librarian...and the late return policy is well draconian.

Is that a dragon or a Thesaurus living under a library?

It's a Dragon, to be precise

It's a Dragon, to be precise a Book Wyrm. The thesaurus is part of her hoard. ^_^

Given the amount of land mass

Given the amount of land mass I don't think it was too extreme. Many european and american cities have extensive underground networks and catacombs under the city. That said the poorly disguised doors and entryways were a bit...over the top. But that was more a accessibility feature. You can't disguise the doors so well that 7yo timmy can't find the well to the COT. You should cause...Timmy has a history with wells but he needs to enjoy the game too.

Lassie: *Barks dejectedly*

Farmer: Again?

Lassie: -nods-

Farmer: I'm building stairs in that well...this is too much.
