|“|| “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.”
― Gary Gygax

Power of This Verse
D&D features an entire pantheon of deities all vastly above Vecna, who could damage the entire infinite D&D multiverse. All these deities are locked in an eternal stalemate with each other, and yet the lady of pain is above the rest of the pantheon. In spite of this, Ao the overgod is transcendent over the entirety of the pantheon, including the lady of pain.
The Verse's power tops out at Low 1-C via Ao's Master.
