      My guess would be Virtue is Tolerance, Vice is Apathy.

          Maybe this can be of some help. You could also add some aspirations that would help to pinpoint the mood. Like 'Be welcoming but shallow' , 'Show dominance on streets'

                Have you had any new ideas for this? Also, you could add the suggestions you liked to the original post.

                  Borrowing from DFRPG, a section I really like is "what is the status quo" and "who wants to maintain vs disrupt it"

                    To be quite honest, this seems like it'd be less helpful for me, personally, as an ST. I'd want something simple; something that streamlines the city creation process, not creates a million and one more things to fill out.

                    The Virtue and Vice concept for city creation is fantastic, because it says so much with so little. It tells you what the default attitude of the person on the street is. Block by Bloody Block and Damnation City also included ideas of framing city regions by giving bonuses to extended rolls based on who and what is there, and that tells you so much about the mood and atmosphere.

                    If you want to stat cities quickly, the goal should be to minimize the number of things to stat out and maximize the amount each tells you about the city.

                    I'd recommend going with Virtue and Vice. Then, if more is needed, throw in a common mood (a city that's been undergoing a crime wave is very different from one that's in the middle of festival season). After that, list a few major regions and the moods for them, designing them as per Damnation City, until you reach your favoured granularity.

                    That's just my feeling.
