The Multiverse consists of a number of planes, which can be divided into the following regions:

Known HistoryEdit

   * The leshays destroy the previous multiverse [Epic Level Handbook, 202].
   * The present multiverse begins, created by the so-called Old Ones. [DM's Guide to Immortals, page 3]
   * The Old Ones create draedens and the first dragons [Dragon #158, page 14]
   * The Elder Evils create the aboleths [Lords of Madness, page 15]
   * The Old Ones create a Barrier around the multiverse and withdraw beyond it, interacting with their creation only through their minions, the umbral blots and spectral hounds. Others say the umbral blots destroy their creators [DM's Guide to Immortals, pages 3, 4, and 50 - see also the Epic Level Handbook, page 224]
   * The first gods find the multiverse without order and without purpose, and they make the achievements of these things their highest goal. [ibid]
   * The draedens become resentful of the gods, and the two forces go to war. After long strife and negotiations, the draedens agree to peace, planning to outlast their enemies, waiting for the gods to destroy themselves, leaving the multiverse to them again.[DM's Guide to Immortals, page 39]
   * The draeden Ulgurshek falls asleep in the void that will one day become the Abyss [FC:1, 126]. The Sleeping Ones fall asleep in what will become the Plane of Ice [The Inner Planes, 72].
   * The forces of Good, Evil, Law, Neutrality, and Chaos form [Hellbound: The Dark of the War, page 8]
   * The force of Evil creates the baernaloths [Ibid, page 8]. The force of Law creates the Twin Serpents [Guide to Hell, page 2]. The slaad lords (first Ssendam, then Ygorl) and the unnamed celestial progenitors also emerge at this time.
   * Law and Chaos battle, as do Good and Evil, twisting and deforming scope of existence. [Hellbound: The Dark of the War, page 8]. The forces of Law enforce order on the chaos of the outer planes, leaving the Abyss as the remnants of their plunder. [FC:1, page 5].
   * The Unity of Rings principle is established by the Twin Serpents [Guide to Hell, 2]
   * The Outlands are created at the border of Law and Chaos [Guide to Hell, page 2, also Hellbound page 8].
   * The Rule of Threes principle is established [Guide to Hell, 2]
   * The Center of All principle is established last [Guide to Hell, 2]
   * Law combines with Good and Evil, and Chaos does the same thing [Hellbound: The Dark of the War, page 8]. The Serpents battle between themselves. [Guide to Hell, 3]
   * The Inner Planes shift. The Paraelemental Planes of Dust and Vapor become Quasielemental Planes of Dust and Steam. They are replaced by the new Paraelemental Planes of Smoke and Ooze [Planescape Monstrous Compendium Appendix III, page 116 wrote:
