^_^ I rather figured, but I like a challenge nonetheless. All I had to do was look up the Vow of Peace, and see that it allowed outright lethal attacks on nonliving targets, AND, nonlethal attacks on living targets ... and I was sure it could be made to work, both mechancially, and for RP.

I just woke up. lulz.
Well, I've explained them a lot of times before. Including, for a PvP, PbP, gestalt "Arena" set at 15th level over on RPOL.net ... with an interesting setup; rather than "any book on my list, pick and choose as you like" ... I set up individual Factions, which were basically pre-selected, limited Book Lists based on certain themes, or Settings.
So, a character built for the Eberron faction would have access to the Eberron-specific books, as well as the Psionic book (Kalashtar, natch) and Lords of Madness (whcih specifically mentions Eberron). But not to Forgotten Realms books, nor things like Magic of Incarnum, BoED/BoVD (due to Eberron having an intentionally ambiguous Alignment scenario), and so on.
Meanwhile, the Forgotten Realms characters had access to THEIR pile-of-books, but not the Eberron stuff.
