Can I use the Wizardly Quill to make a free copy of my actual Awakened Spellbook?

I know the Order of Scribes can already make a copy of the Awakened Spellbook by making the ritual in another blank book, but that leaves the old Awakened Spellbook in blank. I want to have both Spellbooks in hand for pure Roleplay.

Here’s the rules for Wizardly Quill from Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything:

As a bonus action, you can magically create a Tiny quill in your free hand. The magic quill has the following properties:

  • The quill doesn’t require ink. When you write with it, it produces ink in a color of your choice on the writing surface.

  • The time you must spend to copy a spell into your spell book equals 2 minutes per spell level if you use the quill for the transcription.

  • You can erase anything you write with the quill if you wave the feather over the text as a bonus action, provided the text is within 5 feet of you. This quill disappears if you create another one or if you die

Here’s the rules about replacing spellbooks from Player’s Handbook:

Replacing the Book. You can copy a spell from your own spellbook into another book— for example, if you want to make a backup copy of your spellbook. This is just like copying a new spell into your spellbook, but faster and easier, since you understand your own notation and already know how to cast the spell. You need spend only 1 hour and 10 gp for each level of the copied spell.

If I’m not wrong, I don’t need to spend nothing to test the spells I already know. Just need the right amount of ink and time to copy them. The Wizardly Quill is exactly made for this purpose of saving time and ink. That’s my interpretation. Am I wrong?

When I cast Simulacrum to make a copy of a creature with a feature like Rangers Companion, do I get a free animal companion to go with it?

The Simulacrum spell contains an interesting clause.

It appears to be the same as the original, but it has half the creature’s hit point maximum and is formed without any Equipment. Otherwise, the Illusion uses all the Statistics of the creature it duplicates.

Since the Companion feature is part of a creatures statistics, this means that it should get duplicated, I think. So if I were to duplicate a creature that has a feature like Rangers Companion (or something similar), does the animal companion automatically come with it?

Related questions that would have an answer based on the answer to the primary question:

  • If we don’t get a free companion, can the simulacra bond with a new one?

  • If we do get one, would it also be an illusion, or is it a real flesh-and-blood creature?

  • If the Simulacra dies, does the companion instantly die as well?

  • If the companion dies, can the Simulacra bond with a new companion?

How do I make ClickToCopy copy some text rather than string?

Consider the following example:

ClickToCopy["display text","file name"] 

When I click the display text I get "file name" rather than file name without the quotes. Which doesn’t serve my purpose of quick file name access. So when I copy to some location I have to manually remove the quotes.

What should I do to make it copy the actual Text inside the String?

How to copy an order item meta from the parent to the child order in a Woocommerce Subscription?

I’m running a function hooked to woocommerce_order_status_completed that uses an API to get a phone number and pin from an external source and save that in a meta key on some order items. Some of these order items are subscriptions.

When a Woocommerce subscription renewal order runs automatically, it fires the API and gets a new set of call-in data. I need to check if a completed order is a subscription renewal and if so skip the API call and just get the renewed item’s parent meta data and insert it into the child items meta.

The top portion of the code I have tried here is not working. The API call portion of the code in the else{} is working so I have truncated it.

add_action ( 'woocommerce_order_status_completed', 'add_item_meta_or_run_api', 10 , 1);  function add_item_meta_or_run_api( $  order_id ) {  $  order = wc_get_order( $  order_id );   if (wcs_order_contains_subscription( $  order, 'renewal' )){ //check if the order contains a renewal subscription    foreach ($  order->get_items() as $  item_id => $  item_obj) { //loop through each rewnewal item        $  parent_id = $  item_obj->get_parent_id(); // Get the parent order ID for the subscriptions.       $  parentSubscriptions = wcs_get_subscriptions_for_order( $  parent_id );//get parent order subscriptions                 foreach (  $  parentSubscriptions->get_items() as $  parent_item_id => $  subscription_item_obj) { //loop through parent order items and get the meta.                   $  ParentCallinData = $  subscription_item_obj->get_meta('call_in_data');               // Store parenent item call in data in renewal order item meta         wc_update_order_item_meta($  item_id,'call_in_data',   $  ParentCallinData, true);             }    } }   else {//if there is not a subscription renewal in the order then we run the Api       foreach ($  order->get_items() as $  item_id => $  item_obj) {    //Code here has been removed that builds and runs the API call to dynamically get the call-in data and store it in $  APIresponse          wc_update_order_item_meta($  item_id,'call_in_data',  $  APIresponse, true); //the APIresponse is added to an order item meta key     }    }   }

Do any published adventures contain spells a wizard can copy that aren’t written in a spellbook?

A wizard can copy a spell they find into their spellbook. This is described in the "Your Spellbook" section of the Wizard’s class features:

When you find a wizard spell of 1st level or higher, you can add it to your spellbook if it is of a spell level you can prepare and if you can spare the time to decipher and copy it.

Notably, it does not say "when you find a wizard spell in a spellbook". Are there any instances in published adventures where a wizard can copy a spell from something other than a spellbook?

I’m obviously not concerned about spell scrolls here. I’m looking for something like a spell written on a wall or stone tablet, or other surface that does not require a check like a spell scroll does.

This Q&A firmly establishes that the wizard can copy their spells from any written source, but I am not aware of any published examples of this outside of found spellbooks.

what creatures copy themselves

I found the dopplerat which is perfect but its from a 3rd party book.

The only official creature i can find that does anything like this is the black pudding with its split rule.

Are there any official creatures, from any WOTC published material that have a similar ability to copy themselves?

The copies will need to have turns, take actions and be target-able. Really a full creature in itself.

I am specifically not looking for illusions that just cause attacks to miss like the mirror image spell.
