comment Attributes - how to determine them in a setting-specific manner?
Let's take fitting as in reflecting the theme of the game in some fidelity, i.e. accenting the feel of the specific setting. Upon which criteria would I go for the best answer? I'd go for elegance (technically easy, but philosophically rich solution).

comment Underground as an engaging environment?
Vertical is certainly an intriguing way to go, especially for cities; however, going all vertical makes me worried due to the cities inherently inclining to a caste-like concept too much. Ideas?

comment Underground as an engaging environment?
Another idea (read: another almost-cliche) may be some cultures retreating to the underground in the past, due to the surface world experiencing some environmental issues during those ancient times ... and then waiting a thousand years, and turning the concept by 180 degrees (the surface being fine now, while the underground is failing ... due to, say, an unhealthy concentration of magic blight).

comment What are the key considerations to creating compelling environments?
IMHO, this is THE superior answer, as consistency is the golden rule ... and any further methods of creation can be derived from it. As far as cultures are concerned, there is a bit of a random element to these (there goes the Art form); still, at the roots of every culture is an underlying motive - a metaphore derivend from the environment, the past and the humane reflection of these (as in Jungian symbolism).
