comment What can I do when I accidentally gave out an overpowered item?
You could even have the good guys offer to keep the staff safe for the party until they are strong enough to look after it themselves. Even if the characters refuse, it is a strong hint.

comment How to begin a role-playing scenario in medias res?
Not sure it's the GM that would be the sticking point: judging by the question, OP would be happy with improvisation. But if the players are not used to/ expecting it, this isn't going to fly.

comment How should a GM deal with players that want to be “too cool”?
One of the few benefits of being a DM is that you get to choose the system and the world: if the other group members don't like it, they can always design their own campaigns. Suggesting that the OP should run a game that he specifically says he dislikes merely to pander to the ego of one of the players is unkind.

comment How exactly do I use a Metamagic Rod?
Any owner can clearly use the rod: the question seems to be about activating it without using in the sense of wielding.

comment As a GM is it unfair to secretly protect one player's character to keep the peace?
I definitely disagree with 'assume everybody is happy with it unless one of them complains'. Many players think "whatever the GM says goes: if he says too much, his players go"; so if you just assume everybody's happy whatever you do (and fudging in favour of one player is definitely abnormnal, though not necessarily wrong), eventually your campaign will collapse and you won't know why.
