The question of course, is why would/do you or anyone else put up with such a Munchkin?

Q: GM, are you using the d20 rules system?
A: No. GURPS is fun. D20 games are not fun. The GM says so.

Playing d20/3.5 makes Baby Jesus cry.

I would consider that player a jerk. That's somewhat independent of being a munchkin, though in this case he would appear to be both (taking mental disads, then buying up Will, is a Sign).

Which is why I am so happy that 4e got rid of Will rolls for the Mental Disadvantages.

The guy is also one of the most charming people I have ever met. Intelligent, great conversasionalist, witty. I swear he has +5 charisma, and knows how to use it! And he had all the books, games, and he bought lunch. He would be one of the greatest gamers ever, if he wasn't such a jerk. I thank many gods that I finally found another gaming group, even if they only play D&D.

Years? He would have lasted seconds in one of my campaigns.

(If they were playing an Indiana Jones type game, then it might all be appropriate.)

The Munchkin would be asking for a time travelling character fully equipped with TL10 gear disguised as normal equipment who was using the rest of the party as a front and would killing them all whenever he got a chance so he could win.
Eh, the Germans would probably cut him down in no time flat.

Id' call him a jerk and a cheat, had a player like that briefly, got the rest of the group to back me when we told him to get lost.
