revised Can an Immovable Rod be carried in a Bag of Holding?
Reconsidered the whole thing because of the movability of the Rod.

comment Entering and exiting Athas
Do check out Transporting players from Faerun to Athas. It practically asks the same question as you do here, since the starting point is specifies (Faerun) could be replaced with most prime material planes. Note, please, that the most obvious answers (gate, portals, etc.) are listed in the Q itself. :)

comment Manage a player character suffering amnesia?
Plot twist: Have the player believe to have and so "re-develop" a certain skill-set, then, reaching a milestone in the campaign, have it revealed that most of the info about who the character is is wrong, because it was about their twin (about whom they should not really hear previous to this, but you may very subtly imply their existence, so that it doesn't entirely come out of the blue.)

comment Is there a way to learn someone's level in game in DnD3.x?
@Garan: I'm not really looking for ways to guess levels as a player. :) I'm interested in ways actual characters can find out levels in-game (and say stuff like "Well, good sir, I understand you are of the eleventh level of the wizardly profession. Might I disturb you with some questions?" And so on.)

For some reason I find this funny. :) Not the answer I'm looking for, definitely, but funny.

comment Why are starting languages restricted?
Hm, I don't remember druids losing their powers (?), guess I'll have to look that up. This is still a rather arbitrary limit: Why would it be more unlikely for my dwarf to have learned Druidic, say, from an embittered druid (who is dead by now, btw) than to have been raised by members of a society of a very different race that aren't friendly with the dwarves at all? Remember, my dwarf, being a PC, is an exceptional person, and it's just one druid versus an elven family (to say the least.) Btw, a non-Druid could probably learn Druidic, using a skill point, from an ancient tome, a dragon etc.

comment Why are starting languages restricted?
I sense a bit of self-contradiction here, though I may be wrong. You say "secret" languages should still be restricted. Why? If the PCs are so exceptional, why couldn't they be raised by druids as well, instead of just elves? And, in turn, why not take the original rule to mean that for practical purposes, Elven is a "secret" language for the dwarves? They may have the brainpower to learn it, but 1. they don't like elves, 2. elves don't like dwarves (let alone raise their younglings), so it's very unlikely for a dwarf to be able start knowing Elvish. Or druidic. Or draconic, etc.

@KRyan Sure, a dwarf could easily study elvish. But most of the time they just don't, because of historic and racial biases and geographic etc preferences. Rules like these are primarily not prescriptive but descriptive: It's not the rules that prevent your average dwarf from learning Elvish, the rule simply describes that your average dwarf is highly unlikely to even consider learning Elvish, even given the chance (which, in turn, would be very rare, for it would take a rare elf to decide on raising a dwarf foundling instead of returning him home as fast as possible, in the best case.)
