    Or, you know, leave your power clips/hot-shot power pack out in the sun/plug them in.

    More relevantly, a drop trooper doesn't have a voidship.
    Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

    you're right. unfortunately, according to rogue trader, hellpacks degrade a lot faster than even hotshot packs. i've currently got 80 shots, and not one more. seeing the price of a back-mounted hellpack, i'll be working as a merc for a bit longer. which segues into:

    i don't own a voidship, i'm "hired muscle" for the voidmaster who's ever so slightly jinxed by luck. (off the record, i'm sent by the ordo xenos to keep watch on a couple of sworn xeno mercs that are rumored to be in the sector. part grunt, part axe-man, if you will).

    it seems to me to be a shared universe between 3-4 dms, some playing dark heresy, some playing rogue trader with the official tau supplement. they needed a guy who could shoot and be knowledgeable about the imperial guard and the fall of cadia. i've been playing guard since 1998, so i guess i fit the bill.

    * The gish may not neutralize two thirds of the Big-bad's offensive capability with a buff that lets us heal off of negative energy.
    ** No longer allowed to eyeball the results of the Big-Bad's homebrew magical debuff aura and signature effect that the DM things is very cool, think about it for one round, and then use it in conjunction with a single, defensive, non-violent spell that was never meant to be used this way to sever the Big-Bad's soul from his body. (No save.)
    Spoiler: The Details
    Show
    Pathfinder: This guy was one of five secondary bosses in a campaign that's been running for 4 years now and probably has 2 more years left in it, so all of the secondary bosses are big bads. They're all devotees of the four Horsemen, with this one being the Deacon of Charon (death). They all can go uber with signature special powers. In this case (and this is the first we discovered it), he can create an aura around the entire battlefield that makes time outside pass much faster than time inside (essentially slowing us all down while his allies got a free day), blocked teleportation and communication, and also had a very weird effect of making everyone's spirits trail behind their bodies, with their bodies invisible and their spirits invulnerable. We had to guess (or hear, or something) where his body was to know which square to attack. The spirits following around were just echoing the movements and actions of the body from last round, letting us know where he had been but not where he was now. It's all very much a time-themed effect, and spellcraft / knowledge checks have let us know that the souls are less separated in physical space and more lagging behind in time.

    Me: "Okay, I cast Resilient Sphere."
    DM: "Okay. You're now protected by a -"
    Me: "No, not on me. On his spirit."
    DM: "..... uh...."
    Player 1: "Wait, what does that do?"
    Me: "Encases his spirit in a hermetically sealed bubble, preventing it from following his body around."
    DM: "... huh."
    Player 2: "Won't the spirit just fly through it?"
    Me: "No, it's a force effect, and those stop ghosts from flying through, so..."
    DM: "..."
    Player 1: "Okay, so the spirit CAN'T echo his move action from last round?"
    Me: "Nope!"
    DM: "...."
    Player 2: "He gets a reflex save to keep from being trapped, though."
    Me: "Nope! His body didn't make a reflex save last round, so his spirit doesn't get to do any fancy dodging ducking and weaving either."
    DM: "....."
    Player 2: "So this created a time paradox. His past can't do what his present already did, and can't get out of it by doing something his present already didn't."
    Me: "Yup!"
    DM: "......"
    Player 1: ".... so, wait, what does that do?"
    Me: "I have no idea what it's going to do to him, but it's going to do SOMETHING."
    DM: "...... you cheeky bastard."
    *** Following the Big Bad gaining a massive houseruled debuff from this (from activating a previously-prepared one-round-reset power) and losing over half his hit points (all in one go), may not override the DM's control over the Big Bad so as to demand he make a wisdom check "for common sense" to realize that I can cast that same spell 7 more times today if the Big Bad moves from his present spot.

    * I may not just keep casting Web spell to neutralize the colossal vault guardian with a lousy reflex save by forcing it to keep spending every action breaking free of the web spell.
    ** Because we're fighting in a gravity-free void with only a single anchor point in the portal we used to get here and the web spell needs to be strung between two solid objects.
    *** May not use a wall of force just so I have something else to anchor a web spell to.

    * A tree sprouted in the middle of this void by a feather token (tree) will not actually stop a charge by this colossal monster.
    ** No, I CANNOT cast Telekinesis on the tree that's hurtling around the empty void like a loose cannon. That spell has a limit of 25 pounds and the tree masses more than that.
    *** Why, yes, this is a zero-gravity void. The DM has already been very clear on this?
    **** Rules as Written does, in fact, say that this is a WEIGHT limit rather than a MASS limit. But the DM thinks that the spirit of the rule is more in keeping with...
    ***** You know what? I AM allowed to do this. The DM wants to see it blow up in my face.

    *May not, as an Immortal Mystic with rolled stats, outclass the Barbarian in hit points and the paladin in AC.
    **May not walk into traps with said character so that the other members know exactly what it is, and how to disable it.

    *May not, after hearing from the DM that “the walls are listening”, tell the walls to **** off.
    **May not continue to make rude comments directed at the walls for over an hour.

    the good ol' "toss a teammate into the trap to figure it out" trick is usually frowned upon by dm's who spend a lot of time thinking up new traps... unfortunately, it usually is the most expeditive solution when one is lacking either goats, corpses or explosives.

    also,

    *** may not hurl abuse at walls, ceilings, or gravity, despite unwittingly being the only guy that defies the laws of physics accidentally. (5 different characters, 10 years, i'm the only one who accidentally wall-jumps due to damage or explosions).
    **** "aw come on! looney tunes did it!" is not a good justification for a stunt.

    At one of my tables we have a suit of discarded chainmail rolled into a ball that we throw ahead of us to test for traps.

    * Cannot spend my evening helping my girlfriend make a D&D character for a game she might join.

    I feel sorrow for the French roleplaying scene, which is about to get a Dragonborn Sorcerer with a great arse (she was insistent on that detail) played by a crazy girl dropped into one group. In return I told her the kind of character I'll play in my next campaign, Ovelon Nigel Hornsby Wiers (the W is pronounced as a V), the gnomish priest who's main class is barbarian and wields a spear.

    oh lord, i don't know if i want to witness this or run away. any chance you're in the south west? i've actually stumbled on to a gaming club that has at least 30 members, meaning that my city is pretty active in the pen and paper scene.

    I'm in the south east of England, London specifically, there might be a roleplaying scene near here but I haven't found a club yet, and my girlfriend (gotta stop calling her that if I want to live) lives in Paris (although I've got no idea as to where yet, not visiting her for another month and a bit) and potentially has a friend with a group. It's actually been a bit of a chore to convince her that I don't have to be there for her to try roleplaying again (she wants to, but might be more socially awkward than me).

    In 3.5, there's at least one spear that can shift from shortspear to spear to longspear. I think it's in Races of the Dragon. I'd say that counts!
