dnd 5e – How does Split Enchantment affect Crown of Madness?

I’m basing this answer on the way other spells behave when being split or twinned. References to a single target apply to both.

This is for Hold Person, for example.

The target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or be paralyzed for the duration. At the end of each of its turns, the target can make another Wisdom saving throw. On a success, the spell ends on the target.

With the spell twinned, now target refers to both creatures. I see no reason for the action to continue the spell to not apply to both as well.

Furthermore, here’s a tweet by Mike Mearles in response to a similar question.

One spell instance, two targets.

That tells me, the Split spell continues to act as close as it did before but with the added second target. You are not concentrating two spells, and you don’t need to spend an action on each creature, one action works for both.

See Witch bolt for a similar case:

On a hit, the target takes 1d12 lightning damage, and on each of your turns for the duration, you can use your action to deal 1d12 lightning damage to the target automatically.

If twinned, your action lets you damage both the new targets. The wording is a bit different but wording of spells isn’t always 100% consistent for what I’ve seen. I think it’s very likely Crown of Madness is intended to work the same way.

As for the other questions:

  • If just one action is sufficient to maintain control of both targets, can the caster elect to end control of one target but not the other?

No, you can’t. If we treat it any other spell with multiple targets, say for example an upcasted Hold Person, by RAW, you can drop concetration at will, ending the whole spell, but there’s nothing that let’s you end only part of the spell.

  • If the spell ends on a single target (either by choice or through lack of a required second action), does the spell automatically end on the second target? (because of the ‘or the spell ends’ clause)

No, it doesen’t. Again, see how spells with multiple targets work, when each target has a separate condition to break the spell, like a saving throw or moving away, only those that have fulfilled this condition are free from the spell.

  • How might the spell be reworded to demonstrate the RAW effects on two targets?

Replacing each instance of “target” with “each target” might work, “any target” may be even clearer.

Note that this doesn’t make the spell particularly clearer for a normal reader without a multicast feature. Which may likely be the reason why the spells aren’t written that waty to begin with.

Why did my Apple Watch Series 6 ask me to “Turn Digital Crown to unlock” when I’d been nowhere near water?

I have a new Apple Watch Series 6. It’s very nice.

Last night, before going upstairs to bed, I looked at it, and it was blank. I thought maybe it had run out of battery so I tapped it and a very (and I mean very) faint image of the time appeared, but it was not my clock face – it was just the time in large (very faint) numbers in the top right. I tapped it again and a (very faint) icon and a message appeared, and then disappeared after about a second or so. I tapped it again and the same happened. The message was so tiny, so faint, and so brief that it took me about five or six minutes to finally read it. It said, “Turn Digital Crown to unlock watch” (or something similar).

Searching for this message returns result after result about ejecting water, but the message said nothing about water, I don’t remember a “water drop icon filling up” as I rotated the crown, and I don’t remember any tones playing (which is how I think the water is ejected). Also, I’d been sat on the sofa for most of the evening – nowhere near water. Rotating the crown restored normal functionality (and I didn’t have to enter my passcode).

I’m confused for two reasons:

  1. because I don’t know why it was locked
  2. because the message was so damn hard to read.

This second is baffling me. The message was so faint that I had to turn off all the lights in the room to read it, and even then it was so small that I could barely read it without my glasses (which I generally only wear for VDU work). Given that there was nothing else on the screen, why would an important message like this be so small and difficult to read?

I imagine this might have been something to do with my Bedtime (Sleep Schedule) settings in my phone, which would have activated by this time, but I can’t find any information on this because every search result I find keeps talking about water!

Any idea what was happening?

dnd 5e – What nation in Eberron uses a crown as its symbol?

The D&D 3.5e Eberron supplement Five Nations describes the heraldry of every nation. Cyre is the one we’re looking for:

Cyre at a Glance

Data based on the Cyran census of 992 YK and accurate as of the Day of Mourning.
(…)
Heraldry: Crown and bell on a field of green, above a hammer and bellows

(Five Nations pg. 78)

Of note, the art used in Eberron: Rising from the Last War on pages 12–13 is actually recycled from Forge of War, a 3.5e Eberron adventure. The warforged with the crown shield was actually used as the cover of this work. Forge of War was set during the Last War, and so this art almost certainly depicts a battle during the Last War, and so we can be sure that the two sides are each one of the Five Nations (and not some other army). That being the case, only Cyre fits the bill for the crown.

For fun, the others are

  • Aundair: “The head and wings of a dragonhawk, on a field of blue, beneath the tome of knowledge and grains of unending wheat”

  • Breland: “A roaring bear surrounded by gold wyverns on a crimson shield”

  • Karrnath: “A blood-red wolf head on a shield of silver and black”

  • Thrane: “A silver sword set beneath the symbol of the Silver Flame”

Each of these is depicted except for Cyre, which is blank, and Thrane, which shows the holy symbol of the Silver Flame (silver arrowhead with an etching of flame on it), but not the silver sword set beneath it.

I can confirm for you that the banner held by a zombie on page 12 of Rising from the Last War matches the heraldry depicted for Karrnath next to the above description on page 98 of Five Nations.

Eberron Campaign Setting, the original description of Eberron (again for D&D 3.5e), also depicts heraldry for each of the dragonmarked houses. Each depicts a magical beast with an object representing the house’s specialty above it:

  • Cannith: A gorgon with an anvil and smith’s hammer above it, set on a shield over a gear.

  • Deneith: A chimera on a purple shield, with a spiked gauntlet holding a what appears to be a two-ended dagger.

  • Ghallanda: A blink dog surrounded by representations of farming and harvest: wheat, grapes, and scythes.

  • Jorasco: A griffin surrounded by a laurel wreath, a pair of hands (healing hands?), and some acorns.

  • Kundarak: A manticore on a black shield with gold trim, with a crown above and flames around.

  • Lyrandar: The tentacles of a kraken emerging from an abyss set within a shield, with lightning bolts and waves around and a pearl at each of the top and bottom.

  • Medani: A basilisk on a black shield trimmed in gold, surrounded by eyeballs on fleshy-looking stalks, with a sword on either side and a few coins scattered in front of the basilisk.

  • Orien: A unicorn on a purple shield, with a golden crescent moon as well as strange pointy symbols in gold and purple on either side.

  • Phiarlan: A hydra on a black shield that is set askew, with black-and-red ribbon around it that kind of mimics the hydra’s necks.

  • Sivis: A cockatrice on a red shield with silver trim, with a scroll in one corner and a quill in the other, with a lit candle above and rubies on either side.

  • Tharashk: A dragonne on a red shield with gold trim, with thorns around the upper corners and a yellow star above.

  • Thuranni: A displacer beast on a black shield with silver trim. Clawmarks stretch from the point of the shield to the displacer beast’s claws, and the shield itself has an odd, “thorny” design.

  • Vadalis: A hippogriff on a black shield with silver trim, and leaves around and a tree on top.

So House Kundarak also has a crown as part of its emblem, but House Kundarak shouldn’t have been in a battle against Karrnath (Dragonmarked Houses are neutral in the affairs of the kingdoms by treaty).

algorithms – Constructing a crown graph given an independent set

A crown in a graph G is a pair (H, C), where H ⊆ V(G) and C ⊆ V(G) with $H ∩C = ∅$ such that the following conditions hold:

(a) The set of neighbors of vertices in C is precisely H, i.e. $H = N(C)$,

(b) $C = C_m cup C_u$ is an independent set, and

(c) There is a perfect matching between $C_m$ and $H$

Theorem:

Any graph $G(V,E)$ with an independent set I, where $|I| ≥ dfrac{2n}{3}$ , has a crown (H, C), where $H ⊆ N(I), C ⊆ I$ and $C_u ne ∅$, that can be found in time $O(nm)$ given I. $(n=|V|, m = |E|)$


I am trying to code an algorithm to find such a crown in O(nm) time

The only way I could think of finding a crown given an independent set is to take subsets of the set: I and check for all the three conditions of a crown. However taking all subsets of I will take exponential time right? How to find it in O(nm) time. I just want an algorithm with polynomial time. It need not be O(nm)… It can be in the form O($n^c m^d$) where $c,d$ are constants.

history – In Crete, Greece around mid-late 1940’s photos with the stamped on the back “A M Crown Copyright Reserved”?

I have a few old photos from about the mid to late 1940’s in Crete, Greece (the civil war occurred during the time). There is a specific stamp on the back of two photos which is marked A M Crown Copyright Reserved. Any guesses why only the children were photographed by the British photographers?

One photo is a family (my relatives) who were kids and teenagers then, standing close together looking straight into the camera as if they were told to stand like that with their arms down next to their sides. They were not smiling. And a few looked “concerned” in the photos. Before recently, I thought it was a “family” photo. But now I am not so sure. Maybe it was a family photo.

Furthermore, the other small picture I have with the same stamp on the back is only of the small boy from the other photo. He is standing in front of some kind of painted or printed mural on a cloth backdrop that shows a scene of a column, stairs, stair rails, and a wooden look image in the back of a wall.

I did some research and all I could find is that the British forces and photographers were in Greece at that time and it wasn’t the best of times.

I found this info:
“The A crown M was the copyright mark of the Air Ministry, now ministry of Defence.
I was a photographer in the RAF and all photographs had to be stamped on the reverse

dnd 5e – How does Crown of Stars interact with Greater Invisibility?

Suppose I already have the spell Greater Invisibility cast on me, and then I cast Crown of Stars.

From the description of Crown of Stars:

Seven star-like motes of light appear and orbit your head until the spell ends.

My questions are: Are the motes invisible?

Supposing the motes are visible, do I still get the benefits of Greater Invisibility?

Again, supposing the motes are visible, “real-world” logic would tell me that if someone were to try to attack me, the difficulty of trying to hit an invisible person would be somewhat mitigated by the fact that I could just aim at the motes. Similar logic seems reasonable for someone targeting me with a spell.

However, (my reading of) the in-game mechanics would tell me that I am still under the invisible condition (as nothing has ended Greater Invisibility) and thus I should still get all the benefits.

expression manipulation – Crown a list of two sublists with ErrorBar without losing list structure

I have a list with two sublists of numbers, e.g.

Sigmaf = {{1,2,3},{3,4,5}};

… and I would like to crown each number with ErrorBar to yield:

{{ErrorBar[1], ErrorBar[2], ErrorBar[3]},{ErrorBar[3], ErrorBar[4], ErrorBar[5]}}

I have tried:

MapThread[ErrorBar[#] &, Flatten[Sigmaf]]

… as well as:

MapThread[ErrorBar[#] &, Sigmaf]

… without success. Any tips?
