Is there a way to become immune to Possession all the time?

I’m going to be running an Eberron game soon, and one of the players has expressed an interest in playing one of the Inspired ‘gone rogue’. Unfortunately, the rules for Possession of the Inspired are … Very much in favor of the Quori.

I can always come up with a custom item, but is there a way to become immune to possession more or less all the time in 3.5? Answers that work from moderate levels are preferred, but anything that works will give me something to work with.

I am looking for pre-existing solutions which are rules legal as a starting point.

Are there any attacks or effects that reduce max HP to 0 without stating what happens?

Inspired by PJRZ’s comment on this answer to this question:

What attacks actually exist that reduce someone’s max HP, but do not specifically state what happens at max HP of 0?

As far as I am aware, all monster abilities that can reduce max HP to 0 state that the creature dies (and optionally may be brought back as some undead creature, depending on the exact creature/attack used to reduce the max HP to 0).

As an example of an attack that does state what happens, consider a Wraith’s Life Drain attack (MM, pg. 302):

Life Drain. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 21 (4d8 + 3) necrotic damage. The target must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or its hit point maximum is reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. This reduction lasts until the target finishes a long rest. The target dies if this effect reduces its hit point maximum to 0.

Are there any attacks or effect that reduce a creature’s max HP to 0, but do not address whether or not the target dies?

What ways are there to cast resurrection magic without paying material costs?

An example of a method which gives the party access to free resurrection magic is casting True Polymorph to become a Planetar. Planetars can cast Raise Dead 3/day without paying the material cost.

This is not a duplicate of Are there any spell casters that can cast life giving spells without 'expensive' components? because I believe there are more methods of getting access to free resurrection than simply being these spellcasters. Also, the methods by which players gain access to those spellcasters may not exist within the system and may need the story to provide them.

What ways exist for a party of adventurers to get access to free resurrection?

Are there phoenix in D&D 5E?

I am looking for a phoenix in the Monster Manual and I can’t seem to find anything. So I ask myself "Are There Phoenix in D&D 5E?" I can’t find them and I want to see if I can use one in my adventure but, like I said I can’t find a phoenix anywhere.

I am mostly asking this question just to clarify "Are there phoenixes in D&D 5E?"

Are there rules for combining generic variant magic items?

For example: Adamantine armor is an uncommon generic armor variant. +1 armor is a rare variant. Is there such a thing as +1 adamantine plate armor? What’s its rarity?

Does the situation change when one of the item "bases" is a generic variant, but the other isn’t? For example, javelin of lightning is a specific uncommon magic weapon. +1 is a generic uncommon modifier to weapons. What about a +1 javelin of lightning?

Is there a legitimate reason for a USB-ethernet hardware device to have been connected to my laptop?

There was an unknown network adapter in my device manager. I found out it was for a USB-RJ45 ethernet device, which I have never even seen before. This device was not present when I bought the machine. As far as I have researched, it is not installed by any software or devices I use.

I’m concerned because there is a known vulnerability in Windows that’s exploited using these devices. A malicious person with access to the device could have stolen my credentials and logged in. (Google Usb-ethernet windows vulnerability if you don’t believe me.)

I believe the police or another malicious party exploited that vulnerability, and they used it to install a keylogger and acquire my hardware info. Is the presence of this device suspicious enough, from an information security standpoint, to support my belief? What would you do if you discovered the same on an enterprise machine?

Is there any point in using PGP or S/MIME when your receipients mostly don’t use it?

For an average company how much does it make sense to implement S/MIME or PGP for providing their E-mails the verification functionality (please correct me if I’m wrong), which most E-mail clients to my best of knowledge support, even though the contacts of the company usually don’t use any kind of E-mail encryption.

Is there any leeway with choosing my starting items if I’m starting at a level higher than 1?

I’m preparing a Cleric for a Pathfinder 2nd Ed campaign and reached a bit of an impasse. Going by Table 10-10, my character should have one permanent 2nd level item, 2 permanent 1st level items and 25GP of other funds. The problem is that the 1st level items are either redundant (everburning torch and dull aeon stone) or are unusable for my character (Heavy Armors). Considering these factors, I have a few questions:

1) Can a selection of a permanent item be exchanged for multiple selections of consumable items of the same level? If so, how many?

2) Can you take a lump sum of GP instead of a permanent item? If so, how much?
