The Prime Material Plane is the plane of existence in which The World, the surrounding cosmos, and the Parallel Planes exists. Also called the Material Plane or simply the Prime, this plane is the nexus where the philosophical concepts and the elemental forces collide in the jumbled existence of mortal life and matter. The rest of the multiverse is defined in relation to the Material Plane.
Worlds of the Prime are infinitely diverse. All the "mortal worlds" of the multiverse exists within this plane, among them the World, Abeir-Toril, Oerth, Krynn, Athas, Eberron, and the universe in which Earth is located.
