comment Can a Stone Child, Half Dragon, or Killoren be infected with lycanthropy?
Given the creative reasons for being immune given by these players, I suspect the group might be playing with a less by-the-book style than most 3.5rd edition campaigns. Or maybe you usually do play by-the-book, but your players are trying to pull a fast one without bothering to check if their characters actually are immune or not. Or maybe they are playing by-the-book, but they've chosen to describe their immunities in flavourful ways instead of just quoting rules text. I'm kinda curious, now.

@Scott That sounds like part of an answer.

comment Is creating a Dimensional Plane possible in 5e without DM fiat?
@nitsua60 Handy Haversacks are actually pretty small. From memory, the main compartment is only eight cubic feet - that's a smallish stationary cupboard; You'd be better off just living in the wagon.

@nitsua60 You're right about portable holes needing to be unfolded, but many GMs can be readily persuaded to allow players to craft a smaller portable hole.

Oh. I came to this question hoping it was about using flaming webs as impromptu lighthouses on foggy nights.

Why would a player who spotted a sign saying anything about keys not immediately go in and grab every key in sight?

comment Do magic items really cost at least as much to create as they do to purchase?
@thedarkwanderer In every edition, there's rules for adventurers gaining levels, but (within the game fiction) many characters who aren't adventurers nevertheless manage to improve their abilities through a variety of means. The rules are an abstraction designed to facilitate the kind of play that's most fun; Stuff that isn't fun, such as painstakingly spending ten years mastering the art of scroll reproduction, are deliberately unsupported by the rules, but are not necessarily absent from the world beyond the player characters.

comment How to explain lack of characters' in-game knowledge?
Your second paragraph is missing its converse: "On the other hand, if the players are discussing something and there's some detail of the world that they'd definitely know and would be relevant to their decision, just tell them. And you only need to make them roll if there's a chance they might not know."

comment What Influence Did Sean K. Reynolds Have on Pathfinder's Monk?
@Ruut I was more curt than I should've been when I posted my previous comment, and I'm sorry. Your answer is of remarkably good quality.

comment Are there any D&D publications with settings in Mechanus?
@RaxsSlayer My answer is, indeed, perfect. However, it is considered good practice to hold off on accepting an answer until 24 hours have passed, just in case someone sees that there's an accepted answer and doesn't bother to post an answer of their own that might be better than this one.

"That pixie is probably someone's godmother!" This will not end well.

comment What determines a creature's native plane for the Banishment spell?
Historical note: Back in 2e's Planescape setting, it was clarified that a creature's native plane is the one that it born and/or spawned on, regardless of its ancestry - and also that most fiends were created by the foul but natural processes of certain lower planes, and so couldn't be born on the material plane in any normal circumstance. Of course, reincarnation made this more complicated, but it rarely came up in play.

comment What would be the gold cost of a feat?
If you do allow a player to buy leadership as a form of training, make sure they don't immediately turn around and offer to train the other PCs for free.
