dnd 5e – Cast Enlarge on a vial of acid then Catapult it. 8X damage?

Enlarge/Reduce does nothing to change the damage of Vial of Acid.

Enlarge says:

The target’s size doubles in all dimensions, and its weight is multiplied by eight. This growth increases its size by one category– from Medium to Large, for example. If there isn’t enough room for the target to double its size, the creature or object attains the maximum possible size in the space available. Until the spell ends, the target also has advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws. The target’s weapons also grow to match its new size. While these weapons are enlarged, the target’s attacks with them deal 1d4 extra damage.

If you use Enlarge to enlarge a vial of acid, all it does is make it bigger. That’s it. It doesn’t change the damage, because nothing in the spell says it changes the damage. See here for more details on “spells only do what they say they do”: What is the source of the “spells do only what they say they do” rules interpretation principle?

This seems pretty intuitive from a balance perspective. Vials of Acid are 25 gp, Enlarge/Reduce is a 2nd level spell, and catapult is a 1st level spell. Combining these very early game features shouldn’t produce an effect more powerful that many 6th and 7th level spells.

Using catapult can deal 4d8, but doesn’t activate the acid.

Catapult, which has a casting time of 1 Action, says:

If the object would strike a creature, that creature must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, the object strikes the target and stops moving. When the object strikes something, the object and what it strikes each take 3d8 bludgeoning damage. [Up casting to 2nd level adds 1d8 damage.]

However, Vial of Acid says:

As an action, you can splash the contents of this vial onto a creature within 5 feet of you or throw the vial up to 20 feet, shattering it on impact. In either case, make a ranged attack against a creature or object, treating the acid as an improvised weapon. On a hit, the target takes 2d6 acid damage.

These are two entirely different features that both require an action and cannot be used at the same time. You cannot both catapult and get the acid damage. You must choose one.

spells – Acid arrow and sneak attack damage

For spells that deal damage over time such as acid arrow, Contagious Flame, or Holy Javelin, how does sneak attack damage work with them? This question assumes the attack hits, and all requirements for sneak attack are fulfilled for the first round. Later rounds the qualifying nature of sneak attack can be discussed.

The first round of AA and HJ I think everyone can agree on that the sneak attack damage would be applied because attack roles were made. The debate starts on the 2nd round of damage. Does the continuing damage benefit from sneak attack?

The first round of CF is just like AA, attack roll(s) was made, so the sneak attack gets applied. Now for the second round bouncing attacks. Would these benefit from the original sneak attack damage boost since the spell fires off a new ray each round, or would it benefit from sneak attack from me, or better would the original damage that includes the sneak be used and then sneak gets applied AGAIN (yes I am dreaming, but it is possible). For any of these do I still have to qualify for the rules of sneak attack such as be invisible, or worse, does the target I hit have to somehow meet the requirements?

Ive tried asking a variant of this question before but it was closed here. So I am limiting it to something more specific than the original.

dnd 5e – Do you double the delayed damage for Melf’s Acid Arrow after a critical hit?

It is not doubled.

The rules for critical hits state:

When you score a critical hit, you get to roll extra dice for the attack’s damage against the target. Roll all of the attack’s damage dice twice and add them together.

Melf’s acid arrow says:

Make a ranged spell attack against the target. On a hit, the target takes 4d4 acid damage immediately and 2d4 acid damage at the end of its next turn.

The damage for the hit is 4d4 acid damage. The damage at the end of the next turn is damage conditioned on the hit, not the attack’s damage. The extra damage is not the attack’s damage, as it happens next turn, not as a part of resolving the attack. The attack’s damage is those damage dice that are rolled as part of resolving the attack:

Resolving the attack. You make the attack roll. On a hit, you roll damage.

The extra damage is not part of resolving the attack, so it is not “the attack’s damage”. Since the rules for critical hits state that only damage dice for the attack are doubled, the extra damage is not doubled.

processing – Why did my developing tank almost burst open when using citric acid as a stop bath after developing with caffenol delta recipe?

I developed with Caffenol for the first time tonight, using the Delta Standard recipe I found online. Developing went fine. I had a bit of trouble loading the film, but I got it. The problem came when I had to use the stop bath. I pour the Caffenol down the drain, then poured in the tank what I normally use as a stop bath, which is citric acid (I’ve always developed with D-76 before, and had no problems). I started to agitate and noticed the tank got stuffed, as if it were filling up with air. I agitated once more and it almost exploded. Luckily, I was agitating in the bathroom and didn’t mess anything up with this solution. But I got light leaks on my negative, and I’m thinking it had something to do with this. So I was wondering what might have caused that?

china – How could you take a nucleic acid test and an IgM antibody test and have it certified by an embassy 48 hours before traveling?

PCR tests take a few hours to process, so 48 hours is more than sufficient if there aren’t bottlenecks in the test lab. For example, a Seattle company called Atlas Genomics advertises the following:

We provide travel testing with same day results. Please call xxx.xxx.xxxx
Atlas Covid-19 tests are being accepted by Hawaii due to our partnership with Discovery Health who is on the list of Trusted Partners.

Out of interest, I gave Atlas Genomics a call and they said they can do a same-day test Mon-Fri for $149, as long as you show up for the test before 12pm. So you could probably get tested on a Monday morning, email the Chinese consulate on Monday evening, get a confirmation Tuesday afternoon and fly out Wednesday morning – around 48 hours after taking your test.

You should be able to locate a similar lab with premium test processing in your area. Depending on the country/state, even free testing might be fast enough – my own free COVID test here in Seattle took less than 48 hours to process.

china – How could you take a nucleic acid test and an IgM anti-body test and have it certified by an embassy 48-hours before traveling?

China has introduced new rules for traveling.

The Chinese embassy in Belgium has updated their news to include a Notice on Airline Boarding Requirements for Certificates of Negative Nucleic Acid and Anti-Body Blood Tests Results.

Under Test Requirements it is noted that:

  1. Passengers traveling to China via direct flights must, within 48 hours before boarding, conduct the sampling and testing of a nucleic acid test and a IgM anti-body test at qualified medical institutions in Belgium. After receiving the certificates for negative test results for both the nucleic acid and the anti-body test, passengers may present the test reports to the Embassy of China in Belgium to apply for a green health code with the “HS” mark or a certified health declaration form.

How could you take a nucleic acid test and an IgM anti-body test 48-hours and have it certified by an embassy before traveling? 48-hours is surely not enough time to be able to complete all these tasks before an international flight.

The same criteria is also required of passengers catching connecting flights in a 3rd country. Belgium themselves have said that:

For passengers departing from a third country and traveling to China via Belgium, as the transit area at Brussels Airport is not yet equipped for conducting nuceic rapid tests and the anti-body tests for transit passengers, and passengers of Chinese nationality are not permitted for entering Belgium border unless in humanitarian circumstances, it is recommended that passengers bounding for China avoid transiting via Belgium.

Are these requirements even doable?
