I don't want to use the word 'steampunk' (not that I don't really enjoy steampunk. You'll find more Magitek here. My first thought was: Standard Fantasy Setting + 200 years or so. Enlightenment / First Industrial revolution era. Magic and Science are basically considered one-in-the-same, you'll find guns to be fairly common place. On the streets a pistol is a prize possession, but since its only one shot you're wise to keep a blade or a spell around too. Or, if you had the coin, just keep an enchanted cartridge in your gun.
New Clerafte is sort of a second city to the capital. Not a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but obviously not a city on a hill either. Alex is most familiar with the port district and the slums. But she knows her way around the other parts of the city too (The Industrial, Academy, Garrison, Temple, and Upper City.)
Also, a word about currency. Alex has two tin pence, cut the coins in half and you have a half-pence. Seven and a half-pence is a Haymark. Fifteen pence (two Haymarks) is a Silver Mark. Thirty Pence, two Silver, four Haymarks is a Mark, which is the standard denomination (pence are coinage.)
