giant kin Bow’s, arrows and information 2e

This question is in regards to 2nd Edition (AD&D) I’ve looked online for information regarding Giant kin bows and all I can find on the topic is the weight and weapon size for them. as per the phbr10

  • giant kin long bow 125gp 8lbs G speed 10
  • arrow 1/12gp – G – P – 1d8 1d8

but this is all I can find online and in the hand books I have and have seen online what I’m wondering are these questions:

  1. Is there a larger bow then this (my current character is a 10′ giant-kin firbolg with a 20/94 strength what ever that means…)
  2. if so what is the cost wieght and other info in the bows?
  3. what is the range of the arrows or are they the same as normal arrows and is their different types?

Thanks, Foaly

P.S. Thanks for any info you can provide as I’m still searching for answers online as of right now.

Where can I find more information about the Cat Lord?

I’m writing my own D&D universe and there are two deities I’ve chosen from the official setting to incorporate: Lolth and the Cat Lord

The Cat Lord seems to be depicted as a deity for the Tabaxi in Volo’s Guide to Monsters. I’ve tried to find more information about the church of the Cat Lord, how they work, their beliefs etc. but I haven’t found anything.

Where can I find more information about the Cat Lord, especially focusing on mortal worshipers (organization & hierarchy, rituals, worldview, etc.)?

Where can more information be found about Dragonmoots?

In the Rise of Tiamat campaign, Dragonmoots are briefly mentioned in chapter 14:

And again on chapter 9:

Other than these two instances there seems to be nothing else to be found, at least in D&D 5e sources. Even the FR wiki has nothing to add on this topic. Is there any source that details the dragonmoot tradition on the Forgotten Realms?

Can True Strike give me specific information about my target’s defenses? [duplicate]

The True Strike cantrip provides:

You point a finger at a target in range. Your magic grants you a brief insight into the target’s defenses. On your next turn, you gain advantage on your first attack roll against the target, provided that this spell hasn’t ended.

There’s another thread on this site discussing the cases in which casting this spell might make sense. Implicit in these arguments seems to be the idea that the "brief insight" granted by the spell is not useful in itself. It occurred to me that such insight could be useful in itself if it granted knowledge of specific details that might be useful for higher-order tactical or strategic planning outside of just getting Advantage on the next turn.

Does the brief insight granted by True Strike provide access to specific details about the target’s defenses, or is the language simply an explanation of how the player gains Advantage? An example could be where I don’t particularly need to gain Advantage on my next roll, but I want to know whether that bandit over there is concealing any weapons or wands underneath his cloak.

If the first case is true, a DM might report,

Ok, you cast True Strike at the cloaked bandit. He has knives hidden in each of his boots, and is carrying two wands of Fireball and one of Magic Missile in the sack over his shoulder. The walking stick he is carrying conceals a three-foot double-edged sword. He is resistant to lightning damage though a spell that seems to have been cast on him, but you would need a more powerful spell than True Strike to identify the exact spell or source. If you still have concentration at the start of your next turn, you will have Advantage in attacking.

Collecting consumer contact information to alert individuals in case of data breach for B2B companies

If you are a B2B company [US], you may collect data on your clients as well as your clients’ customers. For example, let’s say the only thing you need to collect is your clients’ customers’ names.

In the case that your company has a data leak and the individuals’ names are shared with an unauthorized third party, (I believe) you have an obligation to inform someone.

What is the standard practice? Do you directly email the individual and say their information was leaked? Or do you give your client (a business) a list of the client’s whose data was impacted and let them reach out to the impacted clients.

In the case of emailing the impacted clients directly, what if you do not collect their contact information, and have no way to contact them?


Real world example: my personal data was leaked by a B2B software company that I had never heard of. I was contacted by the software company directly as well as their client who I had used the services of. Was it the responsibility of the B2B software company to collect my email in case they needed to contact me directly?

The Ins And Outs Of Database Marketing For more information visit buy phone database

One of the strategies that has gotten well known with organizations searching for new customers is the strategy of information base advertising. Organizations purchase¬†buy phone database information bases of either email locations or contact numbers from organizations who gathered this information with the aim of selling at a later stage.¬†For more information visit buy phone database We will investigate the intricate details of really getting the information bases and how information base advertising functions. The principal thing that happens is the gathering of information from clueless individuals. This happens when you tick one of those little boxes that show up on endless structures. They regularly state something like “Would you be keen on being told about new turns of events and items like this one?” Those of us that carelessly tick yes wind up added to an information base of expected customers.For more information visit buy phone database

My players have a habit of always torturing enemies they capture for information, how can I make our adventure less macabre?

So I’m running the lost mines of Phandelver as a new DM and we’re about 5 sessions in. I’ve noticed a pattern that seems to repeat itself: the players defeat and capture an evil NPC character that knows some information, that character is tied up and intimidated/tortured, then that character inevitably spills the information it knows.

This cycle is getting a bit repetitive and depressing. How can I, as a DM, encourage my players to try more diverse ways of obtaining information from uncooperative NPCs without withholding story-critical information?

Information exposure through query strings in url of a POST request [duplicate]

I can’t seem to find any information online for when there is information exposure through query strings in URL of a POST request.

I understand it is an issue for when it’s sent in HTTP GET. Wondering if it would still be an issue for when it’s sent in POST?

e.g.

POST /api/view?username=USER 

Best way to store information about a list of materials and their quantity

I want to store some information about a game. Specifically information about certain buildings that can be built in it.

Said buildings require materials to be built. I am trying to come up with a good DB model for storing that information in my database.

For example, one building needs 10 wood to be built. I thought about having a "Buildings" table with columns for ID, name, icon and material cost. However I’m usually used to referencing common values from another table. This is to say I would have a separate table named "Materials" with columns ID, name and icon and the "Buildings" table would have a column "MaterialsRequired" which would hold a reference to the ID of the needed material in the "Materials" table. But I have no idea how to do that (which is a best practice, afaik) AND store the needed amount of said material.
