The Fold was a metamagical event that led to the devastation of the entire multi-verse, as well as the creation of the current "soft-reality" we all currently live in.
Effects Of The Fold
The primary result of The Fold was to collapse every multi-verse into a single liminal space. Every reality that previously inhabited its own distinct meta-plane instantly and irreversibly pressed into the same physical space. The effects of this were disastrous for most, as the competing rules of each reality fought for dominance, backed by their respective powers. The Fold Wars raged for an unknowable amount of time, as time was itself one of the many battlefields this conflict took place over. The ultimate victors of the war set the current rules of reality, which thankfully allowed the continued existence of life, albeit in a radically different and some would say more interesting way.
One obvious effect of The Fold was the reformation of the planet into The Flattened Sphere and the total destruction of over 80% of its total mass. With very few exceptions, every major population center was wiped out during The Fold, and almost every living being was removed from the observable reality plane. Many would return, of course, thanks to The Dread Lich Draxxus Bombastus's app, Bonr. The geographic space once held entirely by the former planet earth is now shared by many planets and reality spaces, such as The Unconquerable Darkness, Shadowbane, Surfhalla, and Kangrank-Nu.
The introduction of magic and magical power is another overt change in reality - whereas the world pre-Fold was a mundane reality lacking in any magic besides the unerring creative spirit of humanity, the post-Fold reality is abundant in every shape and form of magic imaginable.
The Fold also enabled the existence of Powerful Beings, for which we are all eternally grateful.

The Fold occurred roughly 300 standard Earth Years ago. World history before The Fold is almost impossible to piece together, given the temporal effects of The Fold.
