Re: Smallest population able to maintain regular sacrifices?
I see your point, but in this case it's less about sacrificing people to the gods and more about needing their blood to fuel magic (including the magic that keeps the city safe) so I don't think it would apply in this case (though I could see someone spinning it in-universe as sacrificing to the gods, I might use that). There's also people giving away or selling some of their blood while still alive (sort of like real world blood donors) but the idea is that killing someone gives the blood more power (and, of course, provides more blood).
