With the Blink spell, can a creature be carried into the ethereal plane? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • What happens if I Blink while my Familiar sits on my shoulder? 1 answer

Consider a 5th level chain pact archfey Warlock named Tasmir.

Tasmir casts find familiar creating an imp named Molo. Molo shapechanges into raven form.

Tasmir carries Molo in his cloak and casts Blink.

At the end of Tasmir’s turn he disappears into the ethereal plane. Molo flies out of Tasmirs cloak.

Tasmir blinks back into the material plane leaving Molo behind in the ethereal fog.

Is this scenario reasonable?

Does meteor swarm damage objects that are being worn or carried?

The last line of Meteor Swarm (PHB pg. 259) reads:

The spell damages objects in the area and ignites flammable objects that aren’t being worn or carried.

Now, it ignites objects that aren’t being worn or carried, and that’s a pretty typical clause on fire-based AoEs (fireball has it). But it also specifies, as a separate clause, that it damages objects in its area. Not objects that aren’t being worn or carried, but all objects. I assume, given that spells do what they say they do, that it means “all objects in its radius take 40d6 damage.” That would include objects that are being worn or carried.

Assuming a character survives the 40d6 damage, they’re likely to find themselves without most of their mundane gear, given the object HP rules on page 247 of the DMG.

What methods exist to damage or destroy worn or carried objects?

Most spells/abilities only allow the targeting of creatures rather than objects.

Of the few that do allow object targeting, most explicitly except “worn or carried” objects.

It ignites flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried. (Fireball)

or

A nonmagical object that isn’t being worn or carried also takes the damage if it’s in the spell’s area. (Shatter)

What methods do exist to damage or destroy objects that are worn or carried?

I’m looking for spells, abilities, items, or monsters that could achieve this.

Last Observation Carried Forward in python with datetime

I have this event dataset and while retrieving it only recorded the changes and I want these changes to be converted to a uniform time series. The data is recorded at 12 hour time interval. The retrieval_time is an object and start_time is datetime64.

I want to be able to make it consistent for example in last 3 rows, from 19/10/2017 in retrieval time, there is no recorded data for 11:30am. I want to be able to add a row and replace it with last observation for entire row.

I want to output to be something like this..

   ID        Count  retrieval_time                start_time    100231380 70     2017-10-11T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 70     2017-10-12T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 72     2017-10-12T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 72     2017-10-13T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 73     2017-10-13T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 74     2017-10-14T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 74     2017-10-14T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 74     2017-10-15T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 77     2017-10-15T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 83     2017-10-16T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 85     2017-10-16T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 85     2017-10-17T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 90     2017-10-17T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 90     2017-10-18T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 93     2017-10-18T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 93     2017-10-19T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 99     2017-10-19T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 99     2017-10-20T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 104    2017-10-20T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 104    2017-10-21T11:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30    100231380 117    2017-10-21T23:30:00.000+10:30 21/10/17 23:30 

I also want to know how to format the retrieval_time and start_time to make it similar to be able to compare it.

And, I want some generic solution as I have aggregated grouped data for multiple events and time interval is the same 12 hours, however, the retrieval_time and start_time is different for all the events.

Thanks.

What dictates an item being considered “worn or carried”? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • What items are considered “worn or carried”? 1 answer

If a stranger sleight of hands a feather into one of your player’s hats/helmet, does that feather count as being worn or carried by the player? If so or if not, can a spell like darkness be cast on that feather?

If the point you choose is on an object you are holding or one that isn’t being worn or carried, the darkness emanates from the object and moves with it. Completely covering the source of the darkness with an opaque object, such as a bowl or a helm, blocks the darkness.

What about an arrow that was fired and lodged into an enemy, or an object being held by your own mage hand? (Mage hand is not a concentration spell.)

Can chain lightning (and perhaps, spells with similar wording) target worn or carried equipment?

Chain lightning can specifically target objects and does not specify that the object must be unattended; spells like fireball or lightning bolt do. Does this mean its secondary targets can be objects worn or carried by the initial target creature? Can the initial target be an object worn or carried by a creature? What about any combination of these?

You create a bolt of lightning that arcs toward a target of your choice that you can see within range. Three bolts then leap from that target to as many as three other targets, each of which must be within 30 feet of the first target. A target can be a creature or an object [no specification unattended or otherwise] and can be targeted by only one of the bolts.

A target must make a Dexterity saving throw. The target takes 10d8 lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successfully one. (PHB p. 221, emphasis mine.)

Dealing 10d8 damage to up to three worn or carried objects after zapping the creature seems to be a really effective way to use this spell; it would probably break things you don’t want your enemy to use and deal him a good chunk of damage. This potential use of the spell, its expected damage output, and the comparatively low HP of objects suggested in the DMG make for a potentially pretty electrifying attack.


Related, though I couldn’t find an answer here.

How does the Chain Lightning spell target?

This one’s accepted answer does address areas of effect, though I think chain lightning is different enough to warrant my question.

What qualifies for the target of a spell?

Can I attack an object that is being worn or carried by a creature during combat?

Some enemies depend heavily on an object they wear or carry to be an effective combattant and so it may be advantageous to attack and destroy the object first, but I can’t tell whether this is allowed.

Can I attack an object that is being worn or carried by a creature during combat?

For example:

  • could I attack a component pouch strapped to a spellcaster’s waist?
  • could I attack the heavy armor worn by a warrior?

What qualifies as a “light personal hand baggage carried inside passenger compartment” exempt from the 6 HKD charge when taking a taxi in Hong Kong?

What qualifies as a “light personal hand baggage carried inside passenger compartment”? E.g., does the regulation give any concrete numbers of the maximum dimension or weight for a baggage to qualify as a light personal hand baggage?

Paid time off leaves carried forward to next year

I am very new to sharepoint and I am designing a sharepoint based leave balance system for my company. If an employee has accumulating leaves till Dec 31st, it will be carried forward/accumulated to leaves for next year. However if these accumulated leaves aren’t used by the end of first quarter of next year, they should be simply discarded.

How can I accomplish this task by Sharepoint?
