comment How much do players need to know before a campaign
@RSConley It's entirely dependant on the style, setting, and genre of the campaign, though - and therefore primarily opinion-based.

comment What actions/bonus actions/reactions can a character perform out of combat?
Note that it's usually trivial for players to start a combat amongst themselves, and there's no rules saying you actually have to attempt harm to your opponents in combat; Even if a GM were to rule that some spells & etc. can only be performed in combat, that's not really a meaningful limitation.

comment Natives' spells and abilities pretty useless on elemental plane of fire?
What's your problem, here? Are you looking for lore that explains why creatures from a world of fire have the ability to manipulate fire?

@RobertF Why bother with the orc? Just start with a jelly.

comment How can a wizard research spells from his list on his own without expending money?
Ah, you should cite those earlier editions of D&D in your answer, since they support your point.

comment How can a wizard research spells from his list on his own without expending money?
Hmm, I'm not following your common sense, then. Research and crafting are not equivalent; Inventing a recipe is not the same as making a cake, though the former can include the latter, and vice versa.

comment How can a wizard research spells from his list on his own without expending money?
Do you have a reference for the "Spell research is just form of magical research the same as creating magic items" point? (If that were true, wouldn't that mean that someone researching their own spells would only have to pay half the research cost, the same as a spellcaster making magic items only has to pay half the market price?)

However he wants. Primarily opinion-based; There are too many possible answers to this question, and which ones are "best" depend entirely on what sort of campaign you're playing.

comment Can the spell Creation make magic items? (Official rulings only)
You ask what the rules are, then say the rules allow it. I'll edit that part of your question out; If you wish to post an answer to your own question, you should post it as an answer.

So, your answer is "a wizard can't research spells without spending money, but can buy spells as an alternative?"

comment How can a wizard research spells from his list on his own without expending money?
I don't really follow your logic, here. Why are the magic item crafting rules relevant to spell research? Assuming that they are, why does the fact that the materials cost of a magic item is half its market price mean that both halves of the cost of spell research are in components, but that only one of those halves can be crafted?

comment How do I handle my players killing things by catapulting a folding boat?
If the players have a party, couldn't the players just change strategy such that the person commanding the boat is a different individual to the one casting catapault?

Have you tried saying to this person "metagaming is encouraged in this group?"
