12:36 AM
hey there @linksassin, how're things going?
@Shalvenay G'day, pretty good. Had an excellent weekend but busy with work. You?
12:54 AM
@linksassin OK here for the most part
1:15 AM
Would anyone have a good recommendation for a public domain/free license loopable audio clip of chirping/buzzing insects?
Some of the flavor in an upcoming session is that when the insects stop chirping, it means big danger is approaching. So I'm looking for something I can play during the session, and then gradually, with the players barely noticing, I can attenuate the audio down to silence and wait for the players to notice. =3
1:44 AM
@Xirema should be lots of places with that
Oh, big caveat: I need to be able to use it in FoundryVTT
@Xirema Try looking for "insect sounds for sleep" or similar key phrases.
@Xirema I don't know what restrictions that imposes
@BESW I found one on storyblocks with "free audio effects insects"
"for sleep" might make it more loopable though 🤔
Mostly just that it needs to be a file that isn't too big, since I need to be able to stream it to every single player on a domestic internet connection.
1:47 AM
So like, those 8 hour ASMR videos on youtube aren't viable unless there's a plugin to directly stream a youtube video.
Okay, neat

I recall years ago hearing that telegrams charged by the word, so there was an effort to say more with less words. One example is cabalese. Another is using phonetics, such as saying "Canoe" instead of "Can you". — MivaScott 5 hours ago
@AncientSwordRage yeah, it's not that much different than txt spk
(in terms of origin and rationale)
@Shalvenay yeah it's very close which is what makes it so interesting
Like we develop the same system twice
Means it works
But also it made me think of this Washington post article Internet ‘algospeak’ is changing our language in real time

Q: Can a Druid understand language while Wild Shaped?

Matt WMany of the threads on this focus on speaking. Other threads focus on understanding/speaking new languages that the Beast knows but the character does not know. I'm not interested in these questions. My question is: Can a druid, while Wild Shaped, understand language. And if so, which ones? There...

Q: Is the Arcane Archer's feature "Banishing Arrow" redundant for a Curse of Strahd character?

Dan O'SheaMy understanding is that, per the "Alterations the Magic" section in Curse of Strahd: - spells cast for the purpose of leaving Barovia simply fail, as do effects that banish a creature to another plane of existence. Given that the Arcane Archer's Banishing Arrow feature states that it banish[e...

Q: Are un-upvotes lowering the rep ceiling?

Groody the HobgoblinI have a weird behaviour in SE today, where my daily Rep seems capped at 190, not 200: It's not clear to me what causes this behaviour, but earlier today, someone unupvoted a vote: Is that expected to be causing such behaviour? If not, what could be the reason? Or is this a bug?Everything else ...

@AncientSwordRage Interesting article (and to put it into RPG context, it looks vaguely like a thieves cant)
@KorvinStarmast Not gonna lie, I snickered at "leg booty".

So I ended up winning a D&D Player vs Player arena last night, special thanks to the spell Silvery Barbs. =3
(I was not the only player who had access to + used that spell, but I probably did get the most bang for my buck from it, so to speak)
4:30 PM
Q: What does the Orb of Time actually do?

XiremaPrinted in Xanathar's Guide to Everything on page 138, the magic item Orb of Time has the following description: Wondrous item, common Minor tier 3 lb. While holding this orb, you can use an action to determine whether it is morning, afternoon, evening, or nighttime outside. This property functi...

@KorvinStarmast it essentially is

@Xirema @KorvinStarmast Some context. 😛

Q: Should we have a Monsters of the Metaverse tag?

KirtThe recent release of Monsters of the Metaverse has changed the stat blocks of around 200 creatures, and for PCs eliminated the concept of subraces, revised many racial traits, and changed the way racial ability points work at character creation. This question asks about a bugbear racial trait sp...

> D-kun today at 10:10AM
I remember one time in a west marches server I sold an orb of time to someone and they were like "yes! I can't wait to change the time with this!" And I was just like "wait, you realize it's
just a clock right???"
nico Today at 1:23 PM
i think there was a moment of clarification for everyone except the DM
i literally was like "woah wtf you can change time with a COMMON MAGIC ITEM??"
then was like "wait...."
Xirema Today at 1:25 PM
On one hand, I kind of wish Cubes had said something when I said I wanted that as a magic item
Thank you, that's a good idea
@Xirema I use ocr.space mostly
