I played a game of Cities of Death against Tau recently and I used Drop pod assault. The following problem/ situation came up during the game: the Initiates landed and blew away a squad of fire warriors with their boltguns. In the next Tau turn he shot at me and I took my appropriate Righteous Zeal move into another sqaud of firewarriors. My opponent then argued that I can't move (even with RZ) since I just landed in the drop pod and the rules state that I can only move in my next movement phase. I thought that RZ would let me move, but I let him have his turn of shooting at me. Basically, if he fires at me can I move in his turn if I just landed in a drop pod?

I would say that the special BT-rule Righteous Zeal overrule the general dont-move after drop-podding.
Fluffwise you dont have the time to move when you arrive as normal, but when being fired upon by the enemy you run towords them!
Yep It's perfectly legal the RZ move Is made at the end of the opponents shooting phase If you pass your LD off you go :yes:
I play Blood Angels and a friend of mine plays drop pod Templars and Its a pain whether to shoot him and lose my furious charge or just charge him!:wacko:
The RZ overules the Drop Pod.
I don't know the exact wording in the rules but I believe it states something to the effect of troops that have arrived via a Drop Pod are considered to have moved during their movement phase.
So their considered moved just as if they moved in their movement phase.
No difference, Zeal away!
It only applies in your own turn, not your opponent's. Otherwise you could claim "I've failed my morale check, but don't need to fall back since I just got out of a drop pod." (for example)
You don't arrive in your opponent's turn, you arrive in your own - that's the rationale to apply.
