Can a character/creature escape the Negative Plane without its Nightwalker being lured back to that plane?

Background: Character of approx 9th level is attempting to find something hidden in the Negative Plane. They will not have access to spells of 3rd level and higher, let alone 7th level and higher that allow for planar travel to escape the plane and so my main concern is the bag of holding effect created when placed inside an extradimensional space. However, I have included a partial description of the Astral Projection spell for two reasons, 1) because similar to the bag of holding effect it leads to the Astral Plane (albeit with the silver cord at first) and 2) to make the question more general to characters with access to higher level spells.


In MToF pg 216 included in the description of Nightwalkers is the following:

Mighty Spawn: One can reach the Negative Plane from the Shadowfell, much in the same way that it is possible to step from the Material Plane into the Shadowfell in a place where the barrier between planes is thin. Stepping into the Negative Plane is tantamount to suicide, since the plane sucks the life and soul from such audacious creatures and annihilates them at once. Those few who survive the effort do so by sheer luck or harnessing some rare form of magic that protects against the hostile atmosphere. They soon discover, however, that they can’t leave as easily as they arrived. For each creature that enters the plane, a nightwalker is released to take its place. In order for a trapped creature to escape, the released nightwalker must be lured back to the Negative Plane by offerings of life for it to devour. If the nightwalker is destroyed, the trapped creature has no hope of escape.


The description of the Bag of Holding in DMG pg 154 includes the following:

Placing a bag of holding inside an extradimensional space created by a Heward’s handy haversack, portable hole, or similar item instantly destroys both items and opens a gate to the Astral Plane. The gate originates where the one item was placed inside the other. Any creature within 10 feet of the gate is sucked through it to a random location on the Astral Plane. The gate then closes. The gate is one way and can’t be reopened.


The Astral Projection spell in PHB pg 215 indicates the following:

You and up to eight creatures within range project your astral bodies into the Astral Plane (the spell fails and the casting is wasted if you are already on that plane).

later in the same description:

Your astral form can freely travel through the Astral Plane and can pass through portals there leading to any other plane. If you enter a new plane or return to the plane you were on when casting this spell, your body and possessions are transported along the silver cord, allowing you to re-enter your body as you enter the new plane.

(NB: I am ignoring that the Astral Plane does not have portals to any plane, rather just the Outer Planes, Material Plane, and Ethereal Plane as getting to the echo or inner planes is of secondary concern)


I understand that Gate and Planeshift spells can also be used to travel to other planes and would apply. I do not believe the Etherealness spell would apply, as while the Negative Plane clearly borders the Shadowfell and the Shadowfell borders the Ethereal, it is not clear to me that it can be concluded that the Negative Plane borders the Ethereal.


Accordingly, can a character/creature escape the Negative Plane without its Nightwalker being lured back to that plane?

Trading wands back and forth in combat

Long story short, our party (4 members) was in a combat against a couple of magical creatures.

The only thing that we had that could deal damage was a wand of magic missiles (because of previous events of the day).

Only two of our members could use magic items.

They stood next to each other and each turn they used their standard action to use the wand and their move action to give the wand to the other. (they did that for a couple turns)

Is that legal? Is there a cool down for wands or something preventing that exchanging it twice per turn?

Would a polymorphed undead retain any diseases when it reverts back to normal form

Specifically, if I cast a heightened polymorph a lich, turning it into a sheep or caterpillar or something then cast contagion on it (5th level cleric spell that gives the target a disease of the casters choosing after it fails 3 CON saves) then revert it back to lich via damage, would it still carry the disease?

How can I quickly get a player back into a session after their character dies?

As a GM, what kind of techniques could I use to help a player re-join the gaming session after their character dies? I want to avoid any major interruptions to the flow of the adventure. I would also like to avoid having to end the session immediately or making them sit on the side-lines for the rest of the session.

Rolling back transaction with trx_mysql_thread_id of 0 create deadlocks on update

I’m using MySQL 5.6.41 on AWS RDS.

I have seen, recently, lot of transactions ending as deadlocks.

Using SELECT * FROM information_schema.innodb_trx;

I found that a transaction was always there.

I have found a ROLLING BACK transaction with a trx_mysql_thread_id of 0. This transaction was the one blocking others.

To be sure, I ran this: SELECT * FROM information_schema.innodb_lock_waits;

+-------------------+-----------------------------+-----------------+-----------------------------+ | requesting_trx_id |      requested_lock_id      | blocking_trx_id |      blocking_lock_id       | +-------------------+-----------------------------+-----------------+-----------------------------+ |      294906405784 | 294906405784:426:27705081:4 |    294492387379 | 294492387379:426:27705081:4 | |      294906405563 | 294906405563:426:16826188:4 |    294492387379 | 294492387379:426:16826188:4 | +-------------------+-----------------------------+-----------------+-----------------------------+  

This command XA RECOVER; gives no results.

Is there a way to terminate the blocking transaction? Or find what is causing this?

Writing a plugin to track user purchase and post back that using API? [closed]

I am writing a plugin to track user purchase and post back that using API.

First the user visit a third party listing site and logs in. Then he clicks the listing and visits a wordpress store with this plugin.
I need to store that user info for 30 days. In that window period if he makes purchase i will pay commission to the third party listing site.

Can you suggest any code examples or free and paid plugins to look at.
