So when you go to another plane you can't cast "Banish" at all but you can be banished by a native of that plane. It has occurred to me that there might be a Perk called something like "Planar Immigrant" which would allow you to cast "Banish" on a new plane after you'd lived there long enough.

Also, when you are in Hell with no obvious way home you might look for a friendly Demon to cast "Banish" on you. :)
The Resident perk in TT4:Spirits could allow this.

For a Nerd a PIN, Password or User Name of a personal computer or tablet (especially the one he uses most for gaming) might qualify as a 'True Name".
