Zalut is called the City of Magicians?

So, let's just assume that I'm not going to create this city from scratch. Because I'm not.

So I'm trying to think if any RPG product has ever come out that is a 'close approximation' to something like this?

Did they ever do Melnibone' as a city for Stormbringer?

I know D&D did the city of Glantri as a magicocracy, but I don't think the flavor would be right...

Any pointers or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

thanks!

Chaosium had the "Melnibone:Dragon Isle and Dreaming City" suppliment.  It was published in 1993 and is a little rare.  I have it and like most Chaosim products, it is very well done.  I  also think they did a d20 suppliment but I have heard the quality is poor.  Mongoose had the Moorcock license for a while and they might have produced a book on Imrryr (perhaps written by Loz!), but that is a line of products I never picked up so I don't know for sure.

Zak Smith's Vornheim's Complete City Kit comes to mind. Geoffrey McKinney's Carcosa could be useful too. It's far from the perfect "City of Magicians" we can envision, but it could help you making it more "real".

Vornheim's is definitely something I'll pick up someday, but unfortunately both of these are more ideas that full cities. I was hoping there was something already built that could be 're-skinned'.

Someone recommended "Sorcerer's of Pan Tang" but I'd like to take a look at it first!

For what it's worth I settled on Mor Aldenn, City of Mages. It's still a bit too 'fru-fru' D&D, so it'll take some modification, but it's the closest I can find so far.
