D&D Hall of Fame (in which Zachiel talks about how campaigns usually die early):

Singhi's 3e campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3e short adventure - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3e campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3e campaign - aborted three rooms from the end.
Marco's 3.5 7-PCs-campaign - aborted for scheduling problems. Still no level ups.
Marco's intro to RttToEE - gave DMing right to me after 2 sessions. Arbitrary leveling up between those.
My 3.5 Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil - TPK'ed at level 8/9.
Marco's 3.5 all manuals campaign - aborted for excessive PC firepower. Guess what.
Marco's 3.5 premade characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pierluigi's 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - gave DMing rights to me before I could level.
My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits - Completed!
My 3.0 City of the Spider Queen - Completed!
My 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - Completed!
Cau's 3.5 Daemonfey Apocalypse campaign. First true level up ever! Aborted right after that.
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again.
My 4e Thunderspire Labyrinth - Completed!
My 4e Pyramid of Shadows - Ongoing

comment Are there poltergeist-like undead in D&D?
Just a guess on why: whis is trying to solve the problem behind the question (and I applaud you, because this looks like a new player with not much understanding of the system's possibilities and confines), but it doesn't answer the question itself: "Is there a low HP, invisible undead he can command?"

comment Are there poltergeist-like undead in D&D?
There's a somewhat high chance that a monster actually called poltergiest exists in D&D and that its abilities are very different from those you want. For example, was it modeled over Castlevania poultergeists or over Pilgrim Jaeger ones, it'd be too powerful for a low level clercic to command. You'd better ask us for some requirements without a name or clearly stating what's your references (e.g. "In classical undead tales, P. are weak invisible and mischievous undead - on that line, I'm looking for..."). Also remember that invisible is not the same as incorporeal in D&D 3.5e

Don't you also take that damage, hitting the ground?

Animal companions are not magical beasts. They are animals.

comment How do you tell someone you think they are cheating?
What I wanted to convey is that, if the player goes for the "next game, I want to DM" he needs to pay some special attention (I happened to have a DM who changed the rulings and my character building assumptions made for a bad character)

comment Human Sorcerer, Merfolk sorcerer, and Favored Class Bonuses; and is there any way to get access to the Human Class Bonus while being a non-human?
Does merfolk classify as human-descended race, though?

Pay atention when DMing. Them having expectations about rules working in a different way might make you look like a bad DM when you start your campaign.

@Mrlemon See Hey I Can Chan's answer for why that isn't an improvised weapon (even if it behaves similarly)

comment How do I handle Arcane Spell Failure?
@Kryan the feat reads (twice) "If you add a handful of snow or ice as an additional material component to a spell when you cast it". By taking eschew materials, that if is gone.

If you're using Eschew Material, you're not using snow to power your spells, so I don't think Snowcasting activates.
