I have two players who are very opposed to my "ruling" that 3.5 disallows a player to ready a charge. Their argument is that you can charge if you are restricted to only a move or standard action. My argument is that you cannot ready the charge (which is a full-round action) in the first place.
Rules debates are usually resolved with relative ease between us, but this one is causing problems. During the game, they accept my decision as DM, but we usually have logic debates about this outside of game-time. Since my group has traditionally been a "by-the-books" type of group, I would really like to show them that the rules state a charge can't be readied, or be shown that I'm incorrect and a charge can, in fact, be readied.
We've picked over the SRD and the PHB, but both sides continue to argue their own points. Does anyone have a conclusive way to resolve this?
I'm also checking the bulletin boards on the wizards main site next, before anyone suggests that. :)
