D&D 3.5 Question

Is it possible for a wizard to take a divine scroll of a spell that is on both the wizard and cleric lists and copy it into his spell book?

....if they personally have both wizard and cleric levels?

if yes...would any special measures be involved?

if no....why not?

Hello, I'm new and feeling out of my depth having looked at Live Journal for 10 minutes ...

 Hello! I'm new to all this Live Journal business, but I'm keen to meet new people in spite of how hugely confusing this all is to me. So, rather than struggle getting to grips with the way this crazy utlility works, I'll just post a "hello" and hope for the best.

I've been DMing for about four years now and as you can guess by my use of the abbreviation, I started in D&D, however, I have branched into other things including WoD in all its various forms and 5th edition Call of Cthulhu. In recent times, my games are becoming much more dark and moody rather than the shiny dungeon-crawling-slay-the-dragon-loot-the-corpses style I used to adopt. Having said that, one of my passions is FRCS and my current adventure is based in Shadowdale and it is lots of fun. Having said that, my current RP group have still got a long way to go and it would be nice to play with people who have a better grasp of the games and, most importantly, having the drive to create interesting, well-rounded characters who interact well.

On that topic, I personally feel that D&D is too numbers based for as roleplayey a game as I would like, hence the expanding elsewhere. I recall a particularly good game in that area in Vampire: The Requiem, in which we all had such wonderful interaction under the watch eyes of our brillant GM.

I digress, anyway, hello fellow carriers of the dice and I hope I can make some new friends soon so that I don't spend so much time moping around my flat by myself.

My comment to burntbythesun02 made me think about how I really abhor it when GMs change the rules in mid-game. Ad hocking when nobody is certain on a rule is fine; Changing the rules pre-game is even fine - I mean, I do it. But I absolutely detest it when GMs just change the rules after you've made and played your character in accordance to what you thought the rules were. I've even had a GM do it to me in mid combat, taking away my character's ability to escape from the enemies because it was "too powerful."
The thing is, I don't even disagree that it could be considered too powerful; Why didn't you think about that when you looked over the character and allowed me to play it??
Sorry, I guess I'm just venting.
But seriously.
It's unfair.
