Are there any creatures that have more than one classification?

Are there any creatures that have more than one “monster type”?

I was wondering whether in the official published materials there are any creatures that have a dual classification? – for instance, that in their description it says they are both Fey and Beast.

I appreciate any examples or, if none exist, confirmation that creatures only have the one classification of monster type and that’s it.

Thank you.

Posting Short Cuts to make my Posts look more professional? [migrated]

I’m new here, but i am already addicted to reading and answering questions. I am predominantly on my phone.

What i am wondering, is how can i beef up my posts? I recently learned about using > before a line to create the yellow box effect. Are there any other simple tips and tricks to help make my posts look that much more professional??

Does being under the effect of more than one Sanctuary spell require more than one saving throw?

Does being under the effect of more than one Sanctuary spell require more than one saving throw?

In the case where there are two Clerics who cast Sanctuary on the same PC:

  • would a monster trying to attack the character need to make two separate Wisdom saving throws in order to attack?
  • or, would the monster only need to make one saving throw against the Cleric who has the highest DC to attack?

You ward a creature within range against attack. Until the spell ends, any creature who targets the warded creature with an attack or a harmful spell must first make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save, the creature must choose a new target or lose the attack or spell.

If you refer to rules about combining spell effects in your answer, please explain your reasoning.

Does using material components in spells make D&D 5e more challenging?

In my campaigns we typically don’t rely on material components, allowing casters to use any spells as long as they have the right spell slots available. My impression is that using components would be more challenging, since players’ spells would be limited by gold, component availability, and carry weight. Is it significantly more challenging or cumbersome to include this feature? How do others incorporate components?

Is it possible to use WeChat (Weixin) more safely in recent versions of Android by using permissions?

I assume that anything written or read on WeChat is read by the government of the People’s Republic of China. I understand the risks of that.

However, I would like to understand the implications of using WeChat for other data on my device. With earlier versions of Android, you had to grant all an app’s permission requests in order to use it, and WeChat demanded every possible permission. More recent versions of the OS allow users to grant or deny permissions in groups. Is there a combination of permissions which would allow WeChat to function as a chat/messenger app, but prevent it from reading other data on my device?

set_transient fails if the value has more than 60.000 characters

I have a problem which I can’t figure out. I have a collection of object which sometimes can be very big. I have to store the entire collection as a serialized transient. The problem is that when the serialized string has more than 60000 characters the insertion in the DB fails.

Why? I checked the wp_options table and the “value” column is a longtext. Which holds 4GB of data, am I right?
