comment Permanently hiding items/objects
In particular, would a deity be able to interfere on a dead magic, strongly oppositely aligned plane with no planar portal, no morphic ability, etc.? I guess abilities of such deities might not count as magic and the plane may be discovered and traveled to by non-magical means... but don't know enough about what deities can do to know for sure.

@EricB Granted, but unless I'm simply misunderstanding how the impossible lock works, it seems like it'd be easier to just break open whatever the lock is locking. I mean, if I want to break into a house, I can pick the lock, or drive a truck through the living room window. An impossible lock would undoubtedly prevent the former, but preventing the latter would make the impossible lock a fairly powerful item indeed.

Similar to your other answer; basically, entrust it to something that is strong enough to guard it from everybody else. This is a good alternative to the suggestions in the question, but I'm not sure exactly how it stacks up against the possibilities I outline in the question. Add some comparison to my methods' effectiveness and I'll likely accept this since, like I said, it's a good idea with lots of potential.

This thought occurred to me as well, and in reality, this is achieving practically the same ends I'd want anyway. I think you're probably right that this is the most practical answer. However, is it really true that there's nothing a mortal can do that would stump a deity? That's a much stronger statement than what I understood to be the default assumption: that mortals couldn't hope to beat deities in a confrontation. Then again, maybe the two aren't really so different after all.

@EricB An interesting suggestion... however, I'm not even sure this is enough. Even with the impossible lock, you'd still need a container that couldn't be forced open. If such a container existed, it seems reasonable that you could just permanently seal the container so that it could never open... why put the lock on it at all?

+1 Ah, didn't think to check there. I'll read it and edit my answer accordingly.
