One of the other players in my group has asked an interesting question. If a mage memorizes a location to Teleport to and then is placed in stasis for 5000 years, can he still teleport to the memorized location?

I'd say it would depend on how much the location has changed in my opinion. The ability to teleport someplace is based on familiarity with the location as it is currently.

Yes, but after 5 years, 50 years or even 5,000 years, his chance of success would be based on how closely its current state matches what the caster remembers. If it hasn't changed at all (or only in minor, insignificant ways) then he retains the high percentage chance to succeed. As the location has deteriorated/changed with time, the chance will decrease until it's basically just a location he's heard of, but never seen.

I agree with the others. It would be based upon how much the site has changed in the intervening period.

Fact. Look at Thermopylae then and now...not the same place.

How much of a change are we talking about? Is simply rearranging the furniture enough, or re-purposing the space? Or is major changes needed? And what would be the effect? A reduced chance of success or other negative effects?

Side question I read somewhere that teleport will not let you send an object or person into another object or person but I can't remember where they talks about it.

I'd say you can, sinse the physical location is the same, but doing so could be highly dangerous. after all, if you teleport to there now, and someone built a wall right where you are teleporting to...instant death.

The question isn't so much "Can you teleport to an area after someone has completely changed it" but "Does changing it remove it as a teleport location, and if so how much"

After all, it dosn't take 5000 years for a place to change. one really big war and rebuilding effort could completely level and rebuild a place in as little as 10 yeras.

I'm not sure you CAN telefrag somebody with Palladium teleporting but I'd more more worried with 'I teleport to where the top of hte hill use d to be but somebody went and dug a hundred meter deep auditorium and I start falling instantly' rather than teleporting into something.

Ummm, the chance to teleport into a solid object and die instantly is right in the teleport superor spell. Try reading it. even if your teleporting 1 foot to your left, you have a 1% chance to fail, where you have a 2% chance to teleport into a solid object and die instantly. the odds go up the less familiar you are with an area.
