I've been playing Dungeons and Dragons (v 3.5) on and off now for about 10 years. Although I consider myself a novice DM and prefer playing to refereeing, DMing is most of what I do these days. I've slowly been building up reputation here by almost exclusively asking the somewhat obvious questions easily cleared up by the sites more experienced players, and hope to someday be knowledgeable enough to start answering some. That will likely involve branching out into some new RPGs, be it Pathfinder, or one of the FATE systems. If you have a system you'd like to trumpet the merits of, feel free to convince me the next time we bump into each other in chat.

comment Can the spells used to bind elementals in Eberron's airships/galleons/etc be dispelled?
@JonathanDrain I posted a new question that came from this one that you might want to take a stab at. I wanted to know the explanation for how dispell magic represses magic embued items with a duration of instantaneous (if there is one) ... does the "magic item" descriptor supercede the "instantaneous" one?

The feat description states "Crafting an item with a bound elemental is similar to making a wondrous item, except that calling and binding an elemental is an integral part of creating the item." Don't know if this helps ...

I just wonder what your take is on the description in the "Binding" spell that says "A bound extraplanar creature cannot be sent back to its home plane due to dismissal, banishment, or a similar effect" Is the "Binding" spell related to the planar binding spell, and if so, does that negate your statement about dismissing?
