Most Influential Cities of all TimeThis list records the twenty most influential cities of all time, plus some honorable mentions and why they didn't make the cut. I measure civic influence by four main factors, with the last one having lesser importance:Most Influential Cities of all Time by Noguy
1. Cultural influence. This means things like artistic movements started in a city, philosophical developments, technological breakthroughs, and the influence of its institutions. One thing to keep in mind is the importance of the founder effect: later cities which are influenced by earlier ones (like Paris being influenced by Rome) do much to bolster the historical influence of the older city, as later developments may be dependent on earlier ones. The French Revolution would not have occurred if not for the existence of the earlier Roman Republic, for example.
2. Territory ruled. This one is straightforward to a point. It isn't enough to rule a large amount of territory from a capital, but it must do so for a long amount of time and the rule must be rea

Personal Quote: The unexamined life is not worth living
* New information on commissions will be forthcoming soon enough, including paypal commissions. Point commissions will still be an option too, but only for some things *
If you are interested in a picture, contact me and we can work something out on a case-by-case basis. I'm not sure how much time I will have for commissioned pictures, picture requests, or collaborations. I intend to do some of those, however.
I also do writing commissions. If you want me to write a story, a piece done involving your OCs, or something else, please message me. I only accept point commissions, and at a reasonable rate of 10 points for 1000 words, with a 10 point minimum purchase. That means if you want 1000 words, it is 10 points, and if you want 2000 words, it is 20 points. If you want 3000 words, that is 30 points, and 4000 words, 40 points, and so on. These are point commissions only, so no cash is accepted or used, save to purchase the points yourself from DA first. This is a slight price change from an earlier journal, but it is still very reasonable.
Please make sure to tell me a bit about what you want me to write, the names of any characters you want to see, and please answer any questions I may have regarding the setting and characters, to ensure the final product is what you want. I don't do anime, manga, "hetalia", or anything adult rated. I reserve the right to politely decline any commission, if I have reason to believe it does not fit standards or has some other issues.
I can do science fiction as well as fantasy, or even non-fiction genres if you desire. Just make sure to send the points and I will have the piece done in a few days or in the case of longer pieces, a week or more. As a rule of thumb, I have enough time to write 1,000 to 1,500 words a day for commissions, depending on the subject matter. For exceptionally long pieces (100,000 + words), please send me a note and we will work out a point rate and time frame on a case-by-case basis.
For multiple-chapter works, I am open to negotiating a different price, Please ask if you have any questions. More information will be posted as it becomes available, including the possibility of discounts.
If you are interested, comment below or send me a note.
Anyone who watches me (and is on good terms with me) gets a free writing of up to 5000 words. Not once a year or a month, just one free writing. As before, I reserve the right to politely decline anything not in good taste.
