I posted this as an answer to another question on how to reduce the munchkin-factor in gaming (the power-gamer who maximizes every stat over role-playing finesse), but I think it goes equally well here. System-agnostic, try a few of these things and see if your game doesn't get a little more focused on role-playing over rule-lawyering. (Begin Answer From ...

Rules as Written You can, essentially, replicate the effects of Speak With Dead 1 round/level each day. House Ruling Let the player use it as a wondrous item that allows the effect described above. As far as further soul manipulation, allow a Will saving throw. Examples of soul manipulation can be to offsetting xp costs for magic items creation, traded as ...

Yep, That's the lowest level spell to trap a soul. But it has some serious limitations that are required in order to emulate an 8th level spell such as Trap the soul and each one of those has to be cast in preparation to trap the soul or else the spell fails. The way I interpret it is thus: First off, and probably the hardest to fulfill is the Desecrate ...
