Banishment / ghosts 
30th-Aug-2004 04:26 pm
last game session, our wizard wanted to cast Banishment on a Ghost they were fighting to force it fully into the material plane.

this brought up a few questions, that puzzled us all.

1. Can you banish a Ghost? he says they exist in both the material and etherial plane, so you should be able to. I think Banishment is intended for summoned creatures and demons, but I can't find anything definate.

2. If you Can banish said ghost, what plane should it go to? He says it could be either. I agree but think you can't banish something to the plane you are currently on.

We both agree that 20% chance of sending it to a wrong plane would apply.

The MM 3.5 says

A ghost has two home planes..
It is NOT considered extrplanar

so I'd say it have no effect

I'm gonna go with drkmirror on this one. The ghost exists on both planes, it's not exactly from one plane or another.

You'd have an easier time banishing a pixie or some such thing. (Read: no banishing >.> I feel the need to clarify before somebody quotes me on the ability to banish pixies.)

Of course, were you able to banish a ghost, you wouldn't be able to banish it to the same plane you're on. Just look at the name of it...Banishment. It's basically like saying "Get the fuck out of here." Fighting it on the Material Plane and trying to banish it to the Material plane is like saying "GO AWAY!!!!....just kidding. :D!"

It's more of a Dimmensional Anchor, if you want to keep something on its current plane.
