pathfinder 1e – Can someone under the effect of Join Pasts lie?

Specifically looking at Pathfinder’s Join Pasts, which reads:

With touches to the targets’ foreheads, you bring them into mental communion. The targets can share thoughts and experiences, but not words. When one target attempts to Recall Knowledge, the other can Aid the first target’s skill check, using any Lore skill (even if that Lore wouldn’t normally apply) without having made any preparations to Aid.

Could someone under the effect of this cantrip lie when sharing a thought or an experience? In my game, we’ve used this spell to look at a target’s past experiences and see things through their eyes – but the idea that they could just lie (for instance, by sharing that they grew up impoverished or were stolen from) came up recently.

seo – When Google Begins Using Core Web Vitals To Effect Ranking Will They Use Field Or Lab Data

So far as I can see, from May, Google will begin using their Core Web Vitals metrics to inform search ranking. Can anyone tell me whether they will use Field or Lab data as the source of these metrics? I haven’t managed to find this information anywhere in their documentation.

Our site scores well on field data but poorly on lab data.

loop – Query Nopaging action not having effect

I’ve got a custom loop function in my child theme, in the templates.php file to loop through specific post types (‘listings’) and then put it into an array to use into a part of my template.

Here’s an example of the code

public function loop()
{

    global $wp_query;
    $featured = $regular = array();
    foreach ($wp_query->posts as $count => $post)
        if (has_term('featured', 'listings_tag', $post->ID))
            $featured() = $post;
        else
            $regular() = $post;
    $posts = array_merge($regular, $featured);
    $posts = array_reverse($posts);
    

    include('templates/loop.php');

}

So this is great, however, it paginates after every 11 posts.
Instead I would like it to display everything instead.

I tried by adding a custom action in my functions.php, making use of the ‘pre_get_posts’ hook. However it doesn’t have any effect on my code.

function show_all($query){
    if (is_post_type_archive('listings') && $query->is_main_query()) {
        $query->set('nopaging', True);
    }
}

add_action('pre_get_posts', 'show_all');

Any suggestions?

dnd 5e – When can a magical effect be targeted with the dispel magic spell?

Inspired by the following:


The dispel magic spell states:

Choose one creature, object, or magical effect within range. Any spell of 3rd level or lower on the target ends. For each spell of 4th level or higher on the target, make an ability check using your spellcasting ability. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level. On a successful check, the spell ends. (…)

The question for me is what sorts of magical effects can be targeted, we already have (at least) two somewhat related questions:

The first is just a general explanation that dispel magic ends spells that cause magical effects by targeting their magical effect. It does not address what magical effects you can target, just that you can target them at all. The latter asks specifically about the haste spell and has an answer stating:

(…) The haste spell isn’t creating a magical effect in the space (that is things like illusions, walls of fire, etc.). If you would like to argue otherwise you are very quickly into the realm of things 5e doesn’t define properly (ie. what is an object, magical effect, etc.?). (…)

My question is basically whether or not this is true. Does the haste spell create a targetable magical effect? Are there rules that help answer the question “Does X create a magical effect that can be targeted with dispel magic?”


How do I know if I can target an effect with dispel magic?

dnd 5e – Does Dim Light created by an effect override Bright Light in an area?

Unless the spell, item, ability, etc mentions it specifically changing the level of light in a area/radius, then I would say no, it does not change it. Just think about turning on a dim flashlight outside during the day. It is still emitting light, but it doesn’t make a difference. Now take that same light and go into a tunnel or cave and the dim light matters.

Here is an example of an ability changing the level of light:

The Oathbreaker paladin’s 20th-level Dread Lord feature:

At 20th level, the paladin can, as an action, surround himself or
herself with an aura of gloom that lasts for 1 minute. The aura
reduces any bright light in a 30-foot radius around the paladin to dim
light.

And a spell:

Shadow of Moil:

The shadows turn dim light within 10 feet of you into darkness, and
bright light in the same area to dim light.

To clarify, though: For some spells or effects, such as the Twilight Domain’s Channel Divinity, it is possible to be in the area of dim light from a spell/effect and be affected by it even if you are in an area with bright light… Because magic in D&D does not follow our world’s physics to a T.

dnd 5e – Does the Mind Sliver cantrip’s effect on saving throws stack with the Bane spell?

The cantrip mind sliver from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything (p. 108) has a secondary effect that subtracts 1d4 from the target’s next saving throw:

(…) subtract 1d4 from the next saving throw it makes before the end of your next turn.

The spell bane from the Player’s Handbook (p. 216) has a similar effect:

(…) the target must roll a d4 and subtract the number rolled from the attack roll or saving throw.

Does the saving throw penalty from mind sliver stack with the effect of bane, causing the target to subtract 2d4 from their next saving throw?

dnd 5e – Must a creature with less than 30 feet of movement dash when affected by Symbol’s Fear effect?

Assume the wording of the spell said

You must use all of your movement to move away from the symbol on each turn

A clever player could then drop prone, and then crawl half as far as otherwise.

Or,

You must move your base speed away from the symbol on each turn

In that case, what about those whose movement is slowed by heavy armor? They are now the ones forced to dash. What about the dwarf in my campaign how has Boots of Striding and Springing? They will just have to move 25 feet, even though they could move 30 feet.

My point is that the wording of the rule may seem poor, but it actually prevents abuse by players and avoids unclear instructions in special situations. It says move 30 feet, so you move 30 feet.

Gnome:

Gnome Cunning: You have advantage on all Intelligence, Wisdom, and
Charisma Saving Throws against magic.

Halfling:

Brave: You have advantage on Saving Throws against being Frightened.

Each has advantage to avoid the effects of this. If they fail, too bad for them. They have to struggle to keep up with the rest of the group, because the terror from the symbol is just as strong.

Dwarves, however, have no such ability (although lore-wise, most settings seem like they should have advantage against fear, but I digress.) So, I can see a valid complaint from dwarves.

So, a couple of the races with a 25 foot or less base movement speed already have means to help them resist the effect.

Beyond that, Symbol is a very powerful spell, being 7th level. Looking at the effects of the other options the caster could use, it doesn’t seem unreasonable at all to have this hard 30 feet movement, and so require some characters to have to Dash.

After all, if your hands are empty, you are already pretty much limited to screaming in terror and casting spells with only a verbal component. With not being able to keep anything in your hands, you aren’t going to be able to do much with your action anyway. (Unless you want to litter the floor with all your equipment as you draw it use it once, before dropping it next turn.)

settings – How can I make a persist property take effect without rebooting?

I am trying to switch from mtp,adb mode to mass_storage easily, preferably with a script. I can go to two different places in settings and toggle both things there. Or I can use setprop or echo to set it from the command line but that requires rebooting. As I was writing this question I thought to my self that I might be able to use ‘settings put’ but I could not find a key for USB computer connection. There was a key named “usb_mass_storage_enabled” but that key does not appear to control the USB connection.

Is there a way to force changes made to speech plist take effect without rebooting?

I made changes the voice rate in com.apple.speech.voice.prefs.plist.

In order for it to take effect, I have to reboot.

Is there a way to get the same effect without rebooting?
