I got the name Great City from the Moon Man stories.  It had a sort of “city on a hill” aspirational quality to it so depicting it as a dark and dreary gotham seemed like a no brainer.  If you’re feeling the need for some continuity with the Enchanted Dagger I would estimate that this Moon Man story takes place about 20 years after our Roger Chalmers adventure.

I’ve mentioned it before but the cityscape depicted on the first page of our little short story here was based on the architectural drawing of outsider artist A.G. Rizzoli.
