|“||You are not entering this world in the usual manner, for you are setting forth to be a Dungeon Master. Certainly there are stout fighters, mighty magic-users, wily thieves, and courageous clerics who will make their mark in the magical lands of D&D adventure. You however, are above even the greatest of these, for as DM you are to become the Shaper of the Cosmos. It is you who will give form and content to the all the universe. You will breathe life into the stillness, giving meaning and purpose to all the actions which are to follow.||„|

Summary of This Verse
Dungeons and Dragons was the first roleplaying game to exist, and set the stepping stone in place for both video game RPGs and traditional games like Warhammer. It has a very wide lore, differing immensely between editions, and has been the inspiration for many later fiction.
Power of This Verse
The verse, at its very lowest foundations, varies from Wall level to Small Building level in attack potency and comes with it's own slew of hax, including ample Mind Manipulation scaling to the Nilbog, who can mindhax entire goblin kingdoms, and similar instant-incap abilities such as Fear Manipulation, Fate Manipulation, and Sleep Manipulation.
Later, as characters grow in levels and challenge ratings, characters climb to Large Building to Small City level, having an immense amount of instant win abilities ranging from Soul Manipulation, Death Manipulation, Poison Manipulation, Statistics Reduction, etc. Many maintain high levels of regeneration (up to Low-Godly) and varying levels of abstract existence, with demons being born from conceptual sins, devils being purely thoughts and ideas given the illusion of flesh, spirits and ghosts being extremely common, etc. Every character in the verse resists almost every hax in the verse, generally up to the point of battles with similarly strong beings based on raw damage.
After this the verse reaches into epic levels, varying from Country to Planet levels in attack potency, and often with lore statements bringing them to potentially Tier 2 levels of power. Similarly their abilities increase in potency and variety, ranging from Reactive Evolution to Existence Erasure. Notable groups of beings on this level are Elder Evils, who can negate all abilities of any vaguely holy creature, including Multiversal deities. This tier also includes Abominations, forgotten and twisted children of the gods who tend to possess divine sparks within them.
Gods and demon lords reside transcendent of all of this, locked in eternal stalemate alongside other four-dimensional creatures like titans, primordials, etc. These creatures are consistently tier 2 in potency (ranging from Universe level+ to Multiverse level+ and possess immense amount of hax including Type 2 Conceptual Manipulation, Mid-Godly to High-Godly regeneration (and negation), many forms of Immortality, etc.
The strongest of these beings is Vecna at peak form and The Lady of Pain, who are equivalent in strength in their 2-A keys and have the power to destroy the infinite multiverse as a side effect of their being. Above all these gods of any divine rank is, of course, Ao, the Lady of Pain's true form, and The Serpent, 5th-dimensional entities of incredible power who can wipe out all lesser beings with a mere thought. Ao, as the Overdeity of Faerun, reports to Luminous Being, who transcends every facet of the verse.
Finally, we take a look at the Mystaran multiverse, an early setting of the game that lacks any gods, instead having "Immortals" and "Old Ones". Immortals are five-dimensional creatures that are ascended adventurers but are still blocked by the Dimensional Vortex, keeping them from achieving 6th or even higher spatial dimensions for their existence. Old Ones are those that generated the infinite-dimensional multiverse of Mystara, and several are merely further ascended Immortals. These beings denote the currently most powerful known creatures of Dungeons and Dragons save for the Luminous Being himself- creatures such as Thanatos and Rad. Beings of this level range from High Multiverse level to High Hyperverse level.
