Magic Jar Question

Shadow Lodge

had a player come up with a hypothetical situation using Magic Jar the other day and completely stumped me

the Situation is this

Player 1 playes a Str / Con Melee Type
Player 2 plays a Caster

both players are Family members / Roomates

Player 1 encounters a Situation and has to leave halfway through the Scenario

Player 2 Chooses to Cast Magic Jar - taking over player 1's body - while placing his own body into a bag of holding

I know that the answer I SHOULD give him is that player 1 only gets partial credit etc ... but the argument is Compelling for both players getting full credit

Player 1's Body is at Risk as is Player 2 ...

has anyone else had this come up before and if so how did you habdle it ...

I wouldn't allow the player that left early to gain any more credit from the point he took off.

The Chronicle Sheet is an OOC tracker for the player's accomplishments.

You definitely shouldn't allow them to gain full credit with this kind of "workaround".
There's not much experience to be gained by the fighter by watching as he is remote-controlled.
And since this puts the fighter's body at risk without him being able to gain experience from it, you could count it as PVP and therefore disallow the entire idea.
