A homebrew system from way back in my sophomore year of high school.
I was playing a drow wizard (I'd just discovered Drizz't; I realize my shame), friend 1 was a Kenshin Himura clone, friend 2 was some dragonthing, and friend 3 was some kind of robot thing. Friend 1 and 2 were primarily melee fighters, 3 was a gunner/mage, and I was a melee/mage (I preferred the term kamikaze mage).
Anywho. I'd obtained like, a billion scrolls of "Summon Something". Think Rod of Wonders, but the results being whatever the hell the GM felt like.
We'd entered a chamber with a huge ass hole between us and the exit. Friend 1 and 2 try to jump it and fail horribly. The fall ends up killing them, but they had resurrect items so they were fine. They just had no way back up. Friend 3 (who has an ability usable once every five real time minutes to do whateverthefuckhewants) uses his haxability to teleport to the other side. I try one of my scrolls, hoping for a bridge. Instead, lava. Like, Mt. St. Helen's lava. Friend 2, despite being a firebased character, crispified, rez'd, burned, died, burned again, rez'd again, and ran out of rez items. Friend 1 used his swordsman abilities to tunnel his way up, but ended up getting caught as the lava flowed up his hole. Once the lava stopped, I just used my cloak of flying and flew over the hole while we waited the five minutes to hax them back to life.
