I have Resist 10 Fire.

I get hit for 13 points of fire damage, so normally, under these circumstances, I'd take 3 points of fire damage.

What if, because of another ability that triggers on becoming bloodied, I really want to take the full amount of fire damage and become bloodied?

Do I have that option? Can I voluntarily suppress the damage resistance? If I can't suppress it, can I end it in a way that lets me take that damage?

No,

There is no mention of anything in the rules that would allow that. So I'd have to disallow it.

Thanks! That's what I expected, but I vaguely remembered some rule from 3.5 that let you do that... –  yhw42 Oct 23 '10 at 15:24

@yhw42 - I know you could lower your spell resistance in 3.5 Not sure about other resistances. –  Pat Ludwig Oct 23 '10 at 15:49
