Is the max HP reduction from the Diseased Giant Rat permanent?

The variant Diseased Giant Rat (MM pg. 327) has a feature that when it hits with an attack and the target fails a saving throw, they contract a disease. The text says

Until the disease is cured the target can’t regain hit points except by magical means, and the target’s hit point maximum decreases by 3 (1d6) every 24 hours. […]

Is this reduction permanent or will the character regain their original maximum HP when cured of the disease?

My confusion stems from the fact that all information about the effect follows the "Until the disease is cured" statement, which could mean that the reduction only lasts until the target is cured. On the other hand one could argue that it is only further reductions that are mentioned and thus prevented by curing the target and the previous ones are separate effects that has already taken place.

Permanent Polymorph Any Object and levelling up

Suppose a character is under the effect of a Polymorph Any Object spell with a duration of Permanent. When they gain their next level, they gain an ability score increase and apply it to one of the stats that is permanently changed (Str, Dex, Con, or Int). Then, later, the effect is dispelled. What happens to the stat boost? Is that lost, as well? Does it carry back to the original character’s stats? This carry-over seems to be one way if it does, as you do not augment your polymorphed form with previously attained ability score increases. But it also seems pretty harsh to have the character lose the ability score increase after they succeed on removing the Polymorph Any Object spell.

Similarly, what happens if a wizard turns themself into an ethergaunt permanently. This provides a rather small, but not insubstantial, intelligence boost. If they gain levels while they are an ethergaunt, would they gain more skill points than normal for having a higher intelligence score?

Can a chain of simulacra casting a spell make it permanent?

This is a weird question.
It has been established that a caster could cast Simulacrum on themselves to make a simulacra, then the simulacra can cast Simulacrum on the caster to make a second simulacra of the caster, and son on. Let’s call this a chain of simulacra.

Certain spells can be made permanent by casting them on the same place daily or weekly for a set period of time, such as a month or year. These spells include Mordenkainen’s Private sanctum, druid grove, forbiddance, guards and wards, temple of the gods and mighty fortress.

I am not certain of the wording on these, but could a chain of simulacra make any of these permanent?

What spells with material costs or permanent effects could the Warlock: The Genie’s Limited Wish ability apply to?

I’m looking for ways to take the most advantage of this new ability from the upcoming Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything:

You entreat your patron to grant you a small wish. As an action, you can speak your desire to your Genie’s Vessel, requesting the effect of one spell that is 6th level or lower and has a casting time of 1 action. The spell can be from any class’s spell list, and you don’t need to meet the requirements in that spell, including costly components; the spell simply takes effect as part of this action. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish 1d4 long rests.

Most of the spells with material costs or permanent/"until dispelled" effects I’ve come across either have a cast time longer than 1 action, or are level 7 or higher. So far the only spells I’ve found are Revivify and Continual Flame. What else am I missing?

Is it possible to loophole your way into getting a permanent guardian of faith?

Guardian of faith says:

The guardian vanishes when it has dealt a total of 60 damage.

Because of this, could you:

  1. Have the guardian attack something with a good Dex save

  2. Assume the thing succeeds

  3. If not, attack it again (it succeeds, the Guardian dealt 30 damage)

  4. Attack an object twice because objects fail Dex saves

Conclusion (4.5): The Guardian has dealt 70 damage. This means it can never do a total of 60 damage. You now have a guardian for the rest of 8 hours.

  1. Repeat daily

Actual conclusion: You have a permanent guardian of faith.

Would this work?

Can Combat Flexibility satisfy prerequisites for permanent feats?

Can the feat a Fighter gains from Combat Flexibility satisfy the prerequisites for other feats you gain at level-up?

For example, Quick Shield Block requires Reactive Shield. If your Combat Flexibility feat is Reactive Shield, can you take Quick Shield Block during your level-up, then change your Combat Flexibility feat to something else the next day?

I was apprehensive about having something ‘perpetual’ done. Be that as it may, I felt free to investigate it. I went on line and found a few sites on perpetual make up. Nancy’s site was the best I saw, she had a ton of when photographs, and a few extraordinary accreditations recorded. I called Nancy and she was extremely educational and I could tell she realized what she was discussing. Nancy settled on me feel good with my choice to get changeless eyeliner.

I cherished her work and the manner in which she worked so much that I needed to get my lips shaded. Nancy helped me to settle on a decent lip shading for my skin and now I don’t have to wear lipstick! Nancy again worked superbly!

Well there was just a single thing left, my foreheads. I was somewhat anxious about having my temples done, yet I confided in Nancy’s work. I currently have my foreheads done, and obviously they look incredible.

I can’t say enough regarding how cheerful I am with every one of the three methodology, and the manner in which Nancy invests her energy to do it right and how you like it.

I love my new changeless cosmetics. I currently have the decision of not including cosmetics in the event that I don’t feel like it. I was generally so self inner voice about having no foreheads (culled them out when I was a young person and they never became back). The eyeliner upgraded my eyes and makes my eyes look so regular. I really feel more youthful and look more youthful!

At the point when I set out to create a show about spa living, I knew one of the portions would need to be about lasting make-up. I scoured the Web and found a plenty of artists…especially in the Los Angeles and Orange County regions. I concluded I would pick a craftsman by utilizing a solitary model: Who might I decide to take a shot at me? At the point when I discovered I was dazzled with the polished skill depicted through the site. The “previously, then after the fact” pictures were convincing. The clarifications were reasonable. Also, for the most part, Nancy’s accreditations were amazing. Subsequent to talking on the telephone, I realized I had the ideal individual for the fragment. Upon the arrival of the shoot, Nancy and her subject appeared early and arranged. She was obliging and proficient. The portion went consummately, shot in just one take. What’s more, maybe above all, the methodology Nancy performed looked extraordinary!

How secure is (permanent) cookie-only authentication?

I’m making an webapp which have to maintain some user specific data, so authentication is needed. My app is not anything mission critical. As this is the case, I thought of removing the whole sign-up/sign-in as it acts as a big barrier for a visitor. Instead the authentication is based solely on cookies. When they access my app, a cookie is set and they are logged in. All their activities are stored in db across their cookie value. So whenever they visit again from the same browser, they will get their customized pages.

I know that they can’t browse from another device, or if they clear cookies they can’t recover account. Let’s say these won’t be problem for me, as there are going to be a handful of initial users. Incase if they face such trouble accessing, I could give them support.

So is it advisible to have cookie only authentication? And also leaving the cookie unchanged (permanent) is fine?

Can a Changeling with the actor feat have permanent advantage and performance and Deception checks?

So the changeling’s shapeshift ability says that

As an action, you can change your appearance and your voice. You determine the specifics of the changes, including your coloration, hair length, sex, height and weight. You can make yourself appear as a member of another race, though none of your game statistics change. You can’t duplicate the appearance of a creature you’ve never seen, and you must adopt a form that has the same basic arrangement of limbs that you have. Your clothing and equipment aren’t changed by this trait.

So basically, as long as the person you are changing into is/ was a real person, you are always passing yourself off as a different person.

The Actor feat says

You gain +1 CHA, you have advantage on Deception and Performance checks when trying to pass yourself off as a different person, and you can mimic the speech of another person or the sounds made by other creatures that you have heard (for at least 1 minute).

So the way I read it, a changeling would always have advantage on Deception and Performance checks because they are always trying to pass themselves as a different person. Or is the meaning of the Actor feat that they only have advantage when they are trying to prove that they are a different person not in other situations? Really curious if this is kinda broken because a bard or rogue with expertise and advantage on all deception checks could be a crazy good liar.
