** The 3.5 SourceBook ''Tome of Magic'' introduces the Binder class. The class gets its powers by binding various vestiges with seals. While the source of inspiration is obvious many of the vestiges are taken ''directly'' from the ''ArsGoetia'', including their appearance, names and seals.

** The 5th level spell "Reincarnate" allows you to cause a recently dead creature to be revived with all its memories intact, in a new body (not just a copy of the old, since the new body can be of a different race than the original) and with a new personality. In other words, you basically make them [[DoctorWho regenerate Time Lord style]]. At the DM's discretion, you may even be allowed to cast it on yourself just before dying, turning your own character into a Time Lord.

** The first World of Greyhawk boxed set featured rules for weather conditions. One of them states that there's a small chance that PC's sucked up into a tornado would be shunted to [[TheWizardOfOz one of several demi-planes]] within the Ethereal Plane.
