What actions are involved when jumping down?

A character wants to move to the edge of a pit, jump down to the floor 10 feet below and move on to reach a certain spot at the lower floor. The total horizontal distance is equal to his movement. He has Tumble 15, so he will not fall prone from the fall and not take damage.

Tumble DC 15: Treat a fall as if it were 10 feet shorter than it really is when determining damage. (PHB, p. 84)

The creature lands prone, unless it avoids taking damage from the fall. (PHB, p. 183)

What actions are involved? Can he do this with one move action, incorporating falling as part of the action? Or does he need one move action to reach the edge, one free action (drop to the floor) and yet another move action? Or is “jumping down” yet another move action?

If you have the War Caster feat and cast Booming Blade as a reaction, does it count as an opportunity attack for the UA Blade Mastery feat?

The third benefit of the Blade Mastery feat (from Unearthed Arcana: Feats) says:

You master the shortsword, longsword, scimitar, rapier, and greatsword. You gain the following benefits when using any of them:

[…]

  • When you make an opportunity attack with the weapon, you have advantage on the attack roll.

The third benefit of the War Caster feat (PHB, p. 170) says:

  • When a hostile creature’s movement provokes an opportunity attack from you, you can use your reaction to cast a spell at the creature, rather than making an opportunity attack. The spell must have a casting time of 1 action and must target only that creature.

If you use your reaction to cast booming blade, does that count as making an opportunity attack as outlined by the Blade Mastery feat, since you are making a weapon attack as part of booming blade?

Free space created for installation of Ubuntu ‘unusable’

Ubuntu – 18.10 Boot Mode – Legacy The bootable USB was created using rufus. I freed up 200GB for the installation. When i select ‘something else’ the freed space shows up as unusable. What to do ?enter image description here EDIT

During the installation the ubuntu installer says that there is no other OS on the machine but there is Windows 10 installed.

Can the Alter Self spell simulate bioluminescence?

I had an idea that my Draconic Bloodline sorcerer would use the Dragon Wings feature before casting alter self to basically look like an angel. But I thought the look wouldn’t be complete without a halo or some sort of “radiance”, so I was wondering if alter self could also add a bioluminescent ring on the scalp that would glow like a halo, casting superficial light, or dim light at best.

Does anyone know if this would work?

“Displays” app crashes even before opening

I am trying to reposition my external monitor in the Displays app. But as soon as I select the app in Search Your Computer, a loading icon shows up for a few seconds and then nothing shows up. I suspect the app is crashing but I don’t know why.

I looked into dmesg output and for every launch failure, I see one such log-

[20630.390686] unity-control-c[17258]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f5401945924 sp 00007ffd6178a030 error 4 in libc-2.23.so[7f540190a000+1c0000]

All other apps are opening just fine.

Does unit need any updating? If so, how should I do it?

Can I use strike maneuvers while polymorphed?

I have a level 7 Swordsage equipped with a Cape of Vipers from the Magic Item Compendium. He is currently in tiny viper form.

I assume he is proficient with his natural bite attack. I have the Tiger Claw maneuver Death from Above readied.

In normal half-orc form, I have a base land speed of 40 (10 extra from the Quick trait). I guess this is reduced from the viper’s tiny size and speed?

Even though it might be rather comical, can I use the Death from Above combat maneuver in tiny viper form?
