dnd 5e – Can the Mage Hand cantrip drag more weight than it can carry?

Neither does the spell description provide any rules that would increase the weight that can be dragged above the weight that can be carried; nor do the rules apply which let characters drag double their carrying capacity. Therefore, the weight detailed in the spell description limits dragging as it does carrying.

The spell description does not talk about dragging

The spell description of mage hand gives multiple examples of what the hand can or cannot do. None of those are related to dragging, except the capability to

manipulate an object

which can be interpreted as including dragging. In the end, there is no specific information about dragging, suggesting that no extra rules (such as increased dragging capacity) apply.

Rules for carrying and dragging apply to monsters and characters with a strength score.

The rules on carrying capacity are found under Using each Ability (PHB p. 175):

Every task that a character or monster might attempt in the game is covered by one of the six abilities.

Neither is the mage hand a monster or character, nor does it have abilities or ability scores. Carrying, specifically, is explained under Strength (PHB p. 176):

Carrying Capacity. Your carrying capacity is your Strength score multiplied by 15. This is the weight (in pounds) that you can carry, which is high enough that most characters don’t usually have to worry about it.

Push, Drag, or Lift. You can push, drag, or lift a weight in pounds up to twice your carrying capacity (or 30 times your Strength score). While pushing or dragging weight in excess of your carrying capacity, your speed drops to 5 feet.

All these explanations consider creatures with a strength score. The mage hand does not have these properties. Specifically, these rules state that a strength score entitles a creature to have a carrying capacity and a dragging capacity. These rules do clearly not entitle the mage hand to anything a priori.

A case could be made, that a carrying capacity implies a dragging capacity. However, RAW, this does, a priori only apply to monsters / characters with a strength score, especially so, since the dragging capacity restates the reliance on a strength score.

In the end, it seems like the mage hand‘s carrying capacity (which is not even specifically declared using that term) is gained another way, i.e. the spell’s description which the rules from PHB p. 176 do not apply to. Therefore, the mage hand does not gain increases dragging capacity and cannot drag more weight than it can carry.

dnd 5e – Can Mage Hand drag more weight than it can carry?

I have been watching/listening to Chance’s D&D Spellbook, which highlights a potential ‘loophole’ in that the spell doesn’t list how much the hang can drag, say if attached via a rope that weighs less than 10lbs.

Normally a spell only does what it says, but carrying and dragging seem closely enough related that there might be some room for interpretation.

usability – Drag and drop lists – multiple items with same priority

Initially, I had the following requirements:

  1. There are 2 lists with items. The user needs to be able to move the items from one list into the other.
  2. Each item needs to have a priority.

I’ve implemented the following solution:


The user can drag and drop the items and I’m also keeping track of their priority.
For example, in List1, Item1 has priority 1 and Item2 has priority 2 and so on.
In List2, there is just Item4 with priority 1.

So this solution covers all the requirements.

The problem is that now there is a new requirement: multiple items can have the same priority.

So I can have Item1 and Item2 with priority 1 and Item3 with priority 2.

Can this current solution be adapted to this new requirement? I did think about it but wasn’t able to find a solution.

Or is there a completely different approach that is more suitable?


Get Excel VBA Application.InputBox Range by mouse left click and drag?

I know using the code below that I can have VBA ask a user to enter a range to select but can this be achieved by a user Left Clicking on the starting cell and then (holding the mouse left button down) drag down to select the range?

The idea is that once a range has been selected the VBA would then copy the content of one cell on a different worksheet into each cell within the range that the user selected.

Nothing comes up when I search for this so maybe it is not possibe?

Public Sub SelectRange()
  Dim aRange As Range
  On Error Resume Next
  Set aRange = Application.InputBox(prompt:="Enter range", Type:=8)
  If aRange Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "Operation Cancelled"
  End If
End Sub

How far can you drag a grappled, heavy opponent?

A mostly theoretical rules question. Assume a Medium creature (“Grappler”) has grappled another Medium creature (“Heavyweight”). For unimportant reasons, Heavyweight is very heavy- heavier than Grappler’s carry capacity, but not so heavy as to exceed Grappler’s push/drag/lift capacity.

The rules for moving a grappled opponent (PHB p.195) state:

When you move, you can drag or carry the grappled creature with you, but your speed is halved, unless the creature is two or more sizes smaller than you.

The rules for dragging a weight (PHB p.175) state

You can push, drag, or lift a weight in pounds up to twice your carrying capacity (or 30 times your Strength score). While pushing or dragging weight in excess of your carrying capacity, your speed drops to 5 feet.

If Grappler were to attempt to drag Heavyweight, in what order should these rules be adjudicated to determine how far Grappler could move?

Google sheets – drag formula without changing value

I have the formula

=IF(ISBLANK(B48), "",MINUS(B48,B2))

Where 48 should be the current line number
(so the formula for line 40 is:

=IF(ISBLANK(B40), "",MINUS(B40,B2))

b2 is always the same.
I'm trying to apply this formula to multiple lines, but when I drag the formula, it updates the value b2.
So for each line, I have to update the value b2.
Is there a way to apply the formula to multiple rows (best would be the entire column after row 2) without having to change the value b2 for each row?
