comment How to get high level casting, warlock invocations, and binding
Thought bottle shenanigans could be used to resolve some of the issues the OP describes, but without actually describing what those shenanigans consist of this answer's just not very useful.

comment How to make my character the villain in a campaign with multiple DMs?
@LinoFrankCiaralli He was orchestrating both sides of a war for his own political gain in order to propel his own rise to absolute power. I mean, yeah, under his rule unemployment was at an all-time low and we had a strong economy, but I just can't get over his ethics. Anyway, the point I was making is that the film cannon disagrees with the idea that it's easy to track down bad guys electronically.

comment What are some good resources for designing maps (regional, provincial, dungeon, etc)?
@LegendaryDude Some of those questions were asked before the current "no shopping questions" policy was enacted; Others avoid falling afoul of that policy by virtue of not being shopping questions as we define them. In any case, this question would be closed here even if that policy didn't exist, as you haven't provided any criteria that would allow us to judge which hypothetical answer would be "best." Without such criteria, our voting system doesn't work, which in turn means that the question is considered "unclear."

"Star wars villains are especially easy to root out because its advanced techonology." Senator Palpatine would like a word with you.

comment There's a sixth world, and a fourth world. Where are the others?
Note that "the fifth age is the current time" means "right now, as in, you're sitting and reading this during the last decades of the magic-free fifth age."

comment What happens if a large vehicle collides with an arcane gate?
I read "the non-portal side" as meaning - well, you know how a two-dimensional object has two sides? One of them's the portal side, and the other one isn't, as indicated by "A ring is visible only from one side (your choice), which is the side that functions as a portal." This means that "passing through a portal from the nonportal side" would mean "going through the invisible backside," not "going from the out portal to the in portal." In fact, I don't see any evidence that the portals only allow travel one way at all. -1.

comment How do I design well-balanced homebrew items?
The problem with balance problems is that every one is a unique beast - especially when you're dealing with balance problems that arise from entirely new abilities, such as what you're describing. The only way to avoid "any balance problem from the phase space of all possible balance problems" is to check to see if the problems exist and devise unique solutions specific to the problems you encounter - which is to say, the only useful advice we can give is "playtest everything." I'm voting to close this as Too Broad.

comment Where are all of the wizard colleges in Golarion?
Is wizardry taught only in colleges in Golarion? Or is the master-apprentice system also present?

comment In what ways can a spellcaster's concentration be disrupted?
@LegendaryDude The question says both "In what ways can a spellcaster's concentration be disrupted?" and "So are there any ways other than just dealing damage that cause concentration to end?" How are spells and abilities not in scope of those phrasings?

comment With Friends or Group D&D
Unfortunately, this question's too broad to usefully answer. RPG clubs aren't homogeneous, and groups formed by groups of friends aren't homogeneous, so there's no general statements we can make about how the two differ.

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.

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 can I explain the 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."
