What if a mortal is embraced with heart’s blood?

Are there any canonical examples of a mortal being embraced with a vampire’s heart’s blood, containing their sire’s soul?

Someone has a vampire’s heart’s blood magically preserved, perhaps in a debitum created by an Assamite. They drain a mortal of all of her blood, then feed that mortal the heart’s blood.

Granted that this is an unusual scenario that’s fully up to the storyteller’s discretion, are there any by-the-books reasons to believe that any of these is what should happen?

Possible Outcomes

  • The mortal’s embrace proceeds normally, as if they were embraced with normal vitae. The sire’s soul is no longer magically preserved in the heart’s blood and passes on into the afterlife.
  • The mortal is embraced and at the same time diablerizes her sire, resulting in inheriting his generation and possibly other benefits.
  • The mortal is embraced and effectively diablerized by her sire, whose soul overpowers her own due to his stronger will (because at that moment, it’s a mere mortal struggling against a vampire). The sire is effectively resurrected in his childe’s body.

How long would you say it would take to break through this trap?

Here is the description of the trap. I removed module specific details to avoid spoilers.

The stone walls of this corridor are carved to resemble a stack of bamboo-like logs. The passage slopes down from a single door on its western leg, the lintel of which has been crafted to represent a stylized cavern entrance.

If the trap triggers, several of the logs swing out from either wall and buffet the party. Once they swing out, the stone logs don’t swing back and thus effectively block the passage, since they bar the way from ceiling to floor with only a 6-inch gap remaining between the logs.

I don’t want it to be impenetrable. How would you rule PCs breaking through?

How to do annotation/call out in CSS/HTML

I'm trying to figure out how to do something and I haven't seen any good examples. Within an article, there will be 3-5 key points (a sentence or two each). I want to call out those points as the reader is reading through the article. So, the points will probably look different than the rest of the article. I'm not quite sure how to make this look good using HTML/CSS. If you have seen an example on the web please post a link or if you know of a good way to do this please let me know….

Composition of functions and operator forms of built-in functions

I am trying to replicate the behaviour of some of the built-in operator forms (for Map, Apply etc) but struggling to understand the way Composition works. For a concrete example:

list = {1 \[UndirectedEdge] 10, 2 \[UndirectedEdge] 11, 3 \[UndirectedEdge] 11, 4 \[UndirectedEdge] 10}  Map[Apply[Rule]]@list  %: {1 -> 10, 2 -> 11, 3 -> 11, 4 -> 10} 

produces the result I was looking for in this case.

My question is how to replicate the composition of operator forms above. This naive attempt doesn’t work as intended and produces an error message:


Rule::argr: Rule called with 1 argument; 2 arguments are expected.

%: Map[Apply[Rule[{1 \[UndirectedEdge] 10, 2 \[UndirectedEdge] 11, 3 \[UndirectedEdge] 11, 4 \[UndirectedEdge] 10}]]] 

I’ve tried various combinations of parentheses to control the evaluation to avail – the example I started with appears to build an operator form of the composition of Apply and Rule then maps it over the list input but that is not what the composition I attempted does.

So, how to produce the same with Composition or other constructs?

I’m asking really to try and get a fuller understanding of these types of construction work.

Disable title block on edit screen for a custom post type

I have a custom post type with a custom block to collect required data and store it in post meta data or standard fields like title or slug, so I don’t want to display the Title block. I can’t disable title support in the CPT, because too much else depends on it.

The only successful attempt so far has been using CSS to target the id "post-title-0" of the for the title and can clearly enqueue a small CSS file depending on the post type, but I don’t want to depend on something set by WordPress that I can’t control; it feels that something in Javascript would be a better way to go if possible. I was wondering if WP provde any hooks for this but haven’t found any.

I’m a javascript novice, having started learning it in the last few weeks in order to write some custom blocks, so am not clear on the extent of what can be acheived with it. (I have 50 years experience of programming, just not in JS).

It would be OK to only hide the title until the post has been saved.

Has anyone any ideas?

Are there any creatures that are immune to critical hits?

My thinking behind this is to do with the property of Adamantine Armour which states that "While you’re wearing it, any critical hit against you becomes a normal hit" (DMG, p.150).

I wondered if there are any creatures in the officially published materials that have this feature "naturally"? – possibly as a result of their skin/scales being so hard or because of another innate feature.

I am looking for answers with reference to creatures from 5e or previous editions.
