comment Traps specifically for Smart characters
Actually, variations of this trap occurs in several D&D modules, most notably Tomb of Horrors.

comment Why is burying yourself not such a great plan?
this reminds me of a long running joke in my rpg group about camping in the wilderness. the end point was something like this: Pitch the tent, dig a ditch next to it, light a fire in the ditch, put the sleeping bags in a nearby tree, then go to the nearest inn and get a room, put wizard lock on the door of the room, climb out the window and go back home and forget about the whole thing

@SevenSidedDie I'm certain there were magic shop rules before 1980 in D&D, I'll see what I can find

The only other historic D20 reference I can find is from a game called "Empire of the Petal Throne" (1975) on page 29 which has almost exactly the same wording

comment History of the Wish Spell
there are no obvious references, back then we had to take a lot on faith and handwaving. The usual interpretation is that the original Wish spell was a true WISH in the fairytale sense of the word, with all the power that implied
