Before anyone throws a fit, this discussion is hypothetical.
Given the current restrictions on some classes' citizenship, I thought it would be interesting to take it to an extreme, where every class was designated to one city.
There are only 17 classes and 6 cities, so someone would fall short regardless until there is an 18th class. But here is what I have so far:
*The shaman house and original magi house are in Hashan, hence my inclination there. Could be wrong.
(insert general objection of no Cyrenian Devos here)
That love soon might end You are unbreaking
And be known in its aching Though quaking
Shown in this shaking Though crazy
Lately of my wasteland, baby That's just wasteland, baby
What I'd rather see is Achaea pulling away one House per city per class system. I understand why it had to happen, but I think it hurts the potential RP for people, and really forces people into going rogue or join a House they don't like. I do think it needs to be in the hands of the Garden/Patrons to approve of a class for a House, but I think that the Houses should write up a proposal for why class 'x' works in their house. Basically an argument about the RP of your house and said class. With that in mind I thought up the make-up of Hashani houses.
Yeah that wasn't the idea here. Actually not an idea thread at all. I'm talking about a hypothetical situation where they have to be sorted. Where would everything go?
If you had to assign Monk to any one city, which one would get it?

Priest, Paladin, Magi

Serpent, Alchemist, Shaman
The elegant solution of removing Eleusis entirely. The weird thing is that I didn't even notice at first.
I'd go with this, though I'd put Jesters in Ashtan with their Occultist ties. Magi and Alchemist are the toughest for me, since everyone has had Magi and Alchemists have no precedent.
Ashtan's not had jester guards in a long time. (I assume you mean the jokers).
Alchemists had some Twilight basis, so they do fit best in Hashan. I did consider Jester for Ashtan too of course, given the tarot and the blend with chaos/freedom/mischief.
The one thing I don't follow is why Monk is Cyrenese? @Tanris care to elaborate?
Lol. That's actually all I could think of. Smart man.
The Druid house is a good candidate for delete-this-first-if-any, but I'd prefer to salvage it. There's huge potential there if the gods are willing to smack the old guard until they play ball. (I acknowledge with some bitterness that I was booted for trying to teach people how to play ball.)
Anyway, we have isolationist forestals and they're called rogues.

Hard to place: Blademaster, Monk. Also, sorry Hashan!
