dnd 5e – Can a character imitate the actor's speech that he heard before learning the feat?

The Actor feat (PHB, p. 165) says:

You can mimic another person's speech or another person's sounds
Creatures. You must have heard the person speak. or heard that
Creature makes the sound for at least 1 minute.

If a player learns this feat on the eighth level, can he imitate the language he heard on the first level (when he didn't have the feat)?

What about a speech 200 years ago when you were a little elf child?

RAW, I think it's allowed. And I don't think it breaks the game to allow it. But I am curious if I am missing any aspects. I would assume that the 200 year old speech must have been unforgettable at least in some way! 🙂

In the past 3 years, have the Democrats ruined their reputation through their actions, especially Pelosi, who tore up the SOTU speech?

When Donald Trump won the 2016 elections, the Democrats tried the following:

1] The 2016 election recount

2] Trump's inauguration protests

3] The Russian collision

4] The Stormy Daniels affair

5] The Ukrainian investigation

6] Impeachment

Nancy Pelosi tore up SOTU's speech on national television after Trump delivered his speech, showing her contempt for President Trump.

I am not a Republican and I did not vote for Trump. I identify myself as a conservative liberalist. I have never liked the Democrats and I have to say … their behavior has been so fragile, immature and downright youthful in the past 3 years. I've never seen a political party act like this in my life.

Have the Democrats just ruined their reputation?

Why do conservatives believe that freedom of speech does not apply to sitting quietly during the national anthem?

Show me a conservative who said that.

You want to sit still while you have the right. I have the right to say that you are a damned MORON who sits instead of when you are in a country where you are a multimillionaire only because of your ability to sing and dance.

Similarly, the players had the right to do this when they knelt. The fans had the right to view the behavior of these spoiled multimillionaire players.

The NFL also had the right to fire people kneeling during the national anthem. If I made a political statement while representing my company, I would be fired.

In addition, it is stupid for the NFL to allow that. The NFL has always made its money by betting on the patriotism of the fans.

Dungeons and Dragons – What is Dark Speech?

It was described in Book of Vile Darkness (2002)

Dark Speech is described in more detail in the D&D 3rd Edition product Book of the hideous darkness (2002), pp. 32-33:

There is such a horrible language that is inherently full of malice, malice, corruption and hatred that it is simply called the Dark Language. This is the secret language of the evil gods, so lazy and so powerful that even demons and devils refrain from consuming them.

In this source book, it can cause one of four known effects: fear (causes fear of those who hear it), power (strengthens the caster's spell), corruption (weakens a physical obstacle or item), or dark Unity (cause) vermin to obey you). As in 5e, saying this causes a normal psychological injury to humans. The pronunciation of Dark Speech is precise and can kill the speaker without proper training.

Various unique spells and calls are described, including dark language. Some references to this can be found in other source books, e.g. Complete Arcanewho has called a warlock call ominous statement that's just a syllable of the dark language.

A power called Dark Speech appears in the 4th edition of D&D Book of the hideous darkness (2010), p.20, but it is much less effective.

Speech function – what are the main advantages of using the modularization function of Java 9+?

As of Java 9, we have the option of providing our application with the help of so-called modularization Java Platform Module System,

Before Java 9, modularization was done only through JARs in which we had multiple libraries, and it was possible to modularize the application with multiple JARs (e.g., create JARs that contained only entities, utilities, annotations, etc.).

Therefore I ask the following questions:

  1. What significant benefit do we have when using the new module system?
  2. How easy is it to apply in terms of complexity to large projects that are already running on Java 8, for example?
  3. We often encounter conflicts between versions and dependencies in library updates. Doesn't this problem become more common in this modularization scenario?
