If so, my favourite char was a gnomish druid with vow of poverty (Book of Exalted Deeds). The only thing I was allowed to carry and did carry was a huge bag of berries. Whenever our party was resting I filled all spell slots with Goodberry and set about feeding the poor. It was very entertaining to me, and frustrating to my fellow party members, to always come up with new ideas to donate my share of gold and treasures. One was establishing a mobile soup kitchen pulled through the city by my dire weasel.


I think this is pretty hilarious and a good dividing line between old school and new school. If you can do this and still survive, then it's an old-school game.

Vow of poverty gave your character rather generic bonuses on attributes, AC, saving throws, etc. to offset the fact you couldn't use magic items. The trick I used of course was that these bonuses counted even while in animal form, which wouldn't be the case with items because they don't transform. While in brown bear form particularly my char was quite powerful, but I never could make much use of it because I was primarily preoccupied with healing my party members. There was one exalted spell which when cast immediately the round after a person dies, would resurrect that person instantly but knock you down to 1d4 HP. I used that spell once, almost sacrificing myself, to the chagrin of a fellow player, who had already begun rolling for his new character scoring an 18 and a 17, before I brought his old one back to live.
