"Welcome to the Dimensional Stock Exchange. All use of non-natural abilities is prohibited unless you are carrying cargo or are using it to manage a disability of some kind. Thank you for your cooperation, it is necessary to keep trade going for the citizens of your home realm to get things not otherwise present there."
Short Overview[edit | edit source]
The Dimensional Stock Exchange (or the Dimensional Trade Realm) is a realm where all realms in the InterRealm Trade Committee trade exports, imports, and stocks of companies. The main building is owned and governed by the Trade Allegiance, which is hell-bent on quality of trade and workplace safety out of fulfilling shipments, while the Realm docking stations are controlled by the Realm that is using those docking stations.
The shape is a square 60 km in size, with Realms that trade there being connected to the DSE through Corridors that only open using special energy cells attached to the method of transportation used to get to the DSE.
General Areas[edit | edit source]

Realm Docking Stations[edit | edit source]
The Dual-Vortex Realm's docking station is highly representative of the Realm that it connects to (albeit through another), with the station divided into four lanes: three wide ones for Heaven, Hell, and the Earthly sub-realms, plus a narrow VIP lane sandwiched in-between the Earthly and Hellish lanes for VIP stockbrokers certified by the Dual-Vortex Realm's Council (a process that can take years or minutes, depending on the Council's available members and agenda concerning said member). Each of these lanes is both a long boulevard of sorts for motor travel by the traders involved and a commercial district for trading, with each lane also being affected by the magic commonly used in the relevant part of the Dual-Vortex Realm and having a similar ambience (if one diluted by the general state of the Dimensional Stock Exchange as a whole). For example, the Hellish lane simultaneously suits drivers from Hell, store-owners who wish to sell to those drivers and traders, and magicians using fire magic or the like, while also being somewhat low-class compared to some of the other lanes. The VIP lane has no magic except for that required to expedite travel to the best and safest degree possible; while it has been considered that this fact could be changed, the proposal of such changes is usually strictly relegated to being a cheap and easy way to filibuster Dual-Vortex Realm Council meetings.
Trade Allegiance[edit | edit source]
Leaders[edit | edit source]
The Trade Allegiance is led by councils of 20 and led by a Council Supervisor, each council representing the wishes of each realm in the InterRealm Trade Committee.
The Council Supervisor of the Dark Infinity Realm is a Canadian-American stockbroker named John Netts IX, a negotiator that is considered a moderate-conservative, usually seen with a custom-made tie with the words, "I ❤ InterRealm Committee Members!" as a sign of tolerance of his fellow councils.
The Dual-Vortex Realm's Council Supervisor is an Amaranth City stockbroker named Roland Weston (father of the somewhat-less-known Alex Weston). A Human from the Dual-Vortex Realm, where he was born (despite not currently living there for business and familial reasons), this places him between that realm's warring forces of Heaven and Hell, which is fortunate, as members of both forces are on the Dual-Vortex Realm's council, and both have stakes in the Dual-Vortex Realm's trade with other realms. Even more fortunately, Weston is known for attempting to balance the interests of all forces involved and keeping everyone on equal footing (much to the chagrin of the Dual-Vortex Realm's members, all of whom would rather he favor them over the others) with the ultimate result that trade usually gets done to the (sometimes grudging) satisfaction of most Realms in the Trade Committee.
