Stuff{1 gs}

1 Good Stuff


“Bajas” 6 Pips

  • 6 Personal Shadow
    • 1 Personal Shadow
    • 2 Communication Barrier.Barrier against Logrus, sorcery, and trump searches.
    • 1 Control of Contents,
    • 2 Control of time. 55 to 1 to 3

“Bajas” Vek's personal shadow is as much a hiding place as anything.

  • A Black Zone world at the fading edge of the Chaos Sway. Technologically not too advanced beyond trains and steamships with some electronics up to the radio stage. Early air travel. Call it a mixture of 1890 to 1930. A gun age and a jazz age. Sailing ships and steam ships.
  • It is largely archipelagos with a pair of continental land masses. The people are mostly peaceful and involved in a wide ranger of sea-based trades and commerce. This gives Vek something to do, such as fishing, longshoreman work, and socializing with working people unlikely to have much against him.
  • Physically a mixture of benign humanoid races from the Chaos end of shadow.
  • In Bajas is a wharf side dive called the Tavern, for lack of a better name. Chasa and Vek own it. It serves the dock works and a mixture of blue collar clientèle. Music, stage magic, simple fare and plentiful drinks. In this place he owns a deceptively large building built into the front of a cave. Inside are his meager possessions, mostly books and maps. Nothing he would miss if he never returned.
  • Vek's comment on his realm to Alvah:

Some day I'll show my wharf side fisherman's tavern, under a light purple sky, with its gray storm clouds raining hard every few days to clean off the muck and fish guts. A green sun casting a bright yellow light. Sailors in different styles of craft working the shallows and the deeps, bringing in crab and lobster and huckleburrs to his cleaning docks. The deep water craft bringing in tuna and shark and sport fish to the packing docks where they clean, smoke, can and fry on the deep water wharf. Nightly the home folks come to the craft circle to trade their wares for the wares of the sea. And the people from the far off city come to buy the canned and smoked fish for the people inland. Blue snow capped mountains, black and purple diamond sands. The sound of jazz coming from oddly bent tavern where the community folks gather.

"Veksvale" 3 pips

  • 1 Personal Shadow
  • 2 Control of Time Flow. 30 to 1 to 9

A place he ran across in travels and liked well enough to decide to relax in for a time. Rugged, a place of mountains and deep woodlands, a single massive continent, 4000 miles from sea level to the flat edge of mountains above the sea.

High order and Low Order magics work but there is little history of potent magic. Legends of wizards and sorcerers. Occasionally there are individuals with "Abilities" or "Knacks." These people are rarely public about their abilities. Many find themselves on the fringes of society.

KC Piano Bar 8 pips

  • 1 Personal Shadow
  • 1 Content
  • 2 Time-10 to 1 to 3
  • 4 Guard-US Marines-special forces

This Kansas City is a earth world with Vek's favorite Piano Bar. He spends about 2 years here at a time. In time he shifts to a nearby shadow at an earlier yer but stays in much of the same 50 year period from the 1970s to 2020.

In each shadow he befriends and bonds the US Marine Corp and its related Special Forces and much of the US military. This gives him technological military forces when in need. A small group of marines get trained in the realities of their epoch and the wider shadows with the knowledge that they may be called upon to serve in bizarre worlds if Vek needs them.

Recently Benedict allowed Vek to send 100 marines to Rasak for a shocking course on the nature of the universe. He attended with them.

Vek's Occupation list


  • 13 years: Kitchen Rat in Hendrake Hall-Cooking, food prperation, butchery, knife work


  • 5 years: Chaosian Musician

Bone Warrior

  • 70 Years: Soldier of Hendrake.
    • Fought at Patternfall and witnessed the Unicorn's Choice from a prisoner of war pen.


  • 40 years in Chaos training to walk the Logrus, use sorcery and conjuration and create trumps.


  • 70 Years: Veksvale
    • Mountain Life-In general the first 40 years of Mountain Life is the first attempt to move beyond chaos. The next 30 years of it would be in seasons and years at a time in different shadows as he kept moving from shadow to shadow. It is inter spaced in the other parts of life. He still seeks the solitude of deep mountain places.

Circus Life

  • 25 Years
    • Gymnastics, tumbling, high wire and associated Circus activities-15 years
    • Stage Magician-5 years. Slight of hand, misdirection, stage magic, coin work, card magic.
    • Ring Master-Circus management. 10 years. This time would be one of the first he found in the Black Zone after tempting toward freedom after years in the mountains. It would have been satisfyingly social and good learning. It would be reasonably colorful and chaotic. It would give him a chance to learn management skills.


  • 25 years as a primary.
    • 15 in mixed genres.
    • 10 years in a Black Zone Burlesque Review


  • 120 years of practice as secondary activities during Circus,Wharf Life, and Mountaineering Life

Sports Life

  • 15 years

Salining and Wharf Life

  • Wharf Life-25 years to the present

Cooking-135 years

  • 10 years as a chef's assistant-See Dark is the Rat.
  • 15 years in Bar Foods, BBQ, and sailor chow.
  • 25 years involved in large scale food production for a working circus.
  • 15 years in Sporting Life
  • 70 years in Mountaineering

=Gladiator-5 years

  • Lord Gladiator with Alvah

Jazz World-After leaving the circus world and found the Jazz world. While music had been a big part of the Circus world, and he had learned some instruments there, it was not till he heard the jazz piano and fell in love with it. He spent a number of years here but would seek and find similar places to it in his travels. His time as itinerant musicians is spaced among other traveling.

During the years of Jazz he became aware of darker Burlesque themes. Following them deeper into shadows close to Chaos for a vibrant world of Burlesque/Moulin Rouge style music and performances. In that place he became the band leader of a wildly popular burlesque brothel jazz club. It took him 10 years to finally escape a lifestyle he loved. Sporting Life- These activities would be on worlds that he spent a year or so at a time. He might well do sporting activities in other areas butt these worlds would have had active sporting cultures.

Wharf Life- This is the most recent period of his life and is the place he has been returning to. It is Bajas that he has made his home shadow. Chasa lives here and oversees his affairs. Here he is trying to be part of a culture not just a traveler visiting them. Connecting with people. Cooking Life-While his introduction to cooking was horrifying the practice was satisfying in time. Once free and at his own ends he would find foods he liked. He has learned to love cooking, brewing, vinting, and distiling among other arts.

Skills Breakdown

Mountaineering-70 years Much like mountain men. Camping, woodman skills, hunting, tracking, archery, skinning, fur trade, and other survivalist skills. This part of his life would have been the early period that he was cautiously exploring shadows outside of chaos, fearing the call of the Laboratory sorcerers. This would be a lot of hiding, hunting, and living by himself. Perhaps some Indians and fur traders and other mountain-men activities appropriate to the realms near chaos. These interactions might be his first toward gaining socialization. This period would be the largest block of about 40 initial years. Cooking 10 years as a chef's assistant-See Dark is the Rat. 15 years in Bar Foods and BBQ 25 years involved in large scale food production for a working circus. 15 years in Sporting Life 70 years in Mountaineering

Circus Time-25 years Gymnastics, tumbling, high wire and associated Circus activities-15 years Stage Magician-5 years. Slight of hand, misdirection, stage magic, coin work, card magic. Ring Master-Circus management. 10 years. This time would be one of the first he found in the Black Zone after tempting toward freedom after years in the mountains. It would have been satisfyingly social and good learning. It would be reasonably colorful and chaotic. It would give him a chance to learn management skills.

Musician-25 years as a primary. Also during Circus,Wharf Life, and Mountaineering Life for another 120 years of practice. Jazz like musician-15 years in small bits of 2 or 3 years at a time in between other things. Primarily the Piano like devices and the saxophone like devices but proficient in many others. Also love guitar and harp.

Music being part of a solitary life in the mountains he would have learned flute and handcrafted instruments. Perhaps drums from Indians. Has spent time traveling in the form of a traveling musician. Bard. Minstrel, itinerant musician. This is as much to learn social skills as to perform.

In a urban shadow of unknown name he found a dark and smoky city like New Orleans in a early jazz age. In a waterside bar he found heavy smoke and heavy drink and heavy jazz piano of a forgotten master. The sound intoxicated him as much as the smoke and drink. He spent a couple years in the area learning piano from this great and surpassed him. Chaos Burlesque band. a 10 year span as a band leader in a wildly popular club near chaos. (Story-Red Flashy Lights)

Sports Life-15 years

  • Triathlon like events that mix activities. Running, cycling and paragliding, sailing, swimming.
  • Competitive swimming. Marathon style running event.
  • Boxing and hand to hand competitions.
  • Enjoys playing team sports not at a professional level. Baseball, football, soccer, rugby.
  • In the sporting world he gained a love of motor racing. Motorcycles, cars, planes. Eventually he found racing on Randal.

Wharf Life-25 years to the present

  • Sailor- Nautical skills, knots, woodworking-10 years on Bajas. Dock working-Longshoreman.
  • Bartender/manager “Red Cat Tavern” -15 years on Bajas after the time at sea.
  • Brewer/vintner/distiller 15 years as a bar activity.

The world of Bajas became something of a refuge. His other lives were predominantly solitary, even when around others. For some reason the time on Bajas was different for him. He became close to those on the ships. In time he started working on the docks and enjoyed the simple lifestyle of the longshoreman. When the tavern all the men went to before going home fell on hard times Vek bought it from the original owner and renamed it the Red Cat Tavern. Chasa became its manager and bartender.
