Does Word of Recall work with Temple of the Gods?

The word of recall spell (PHB, p. 289) says:

You must designate a sanctuary by casting this spell within a location, such as a temple, dedicated to or strongly linked to your deity. If you attempt to cast the spell in this manner in an area that isn’t dedicated to your deity, the spell has no effect.

The temple of the gods spell (XGtE, p. 167) says:

You cause a temple to shimmer into existence on ground you can see within range. […] The temple remains until the spell ends [which is 24 hours]. It is dedicated to whatever god, pantheon or philosophy is represented by the holy symbol used in the casting.

[…]

Casting this spell on the same spot every day for a year makes this effect permanent.

My plan is, cast temple of the gods (it takes one hour to cast, but it’s 24 hour countdown won’t come into effect until after I’ve finished casting the spell), then cast word of recall (takes only one action) within the temple. That’s my 6th and 7th level spell slots gone (I’m currently 14th level, so that’s all I’ve got above 5th).

Then long rest, probably within the temple (so that’s 8 hours of the 24 hours that the temple will exist for), then go on a dangerous mission. So long as the mission doesn’t take more than ~16 hours (or it becomes clear after 16 hours that it’s no longer dangerous), then I should be able to cast word of recall (assuming I reserve either my 6th or 7th level slot for it) to get my and my party out of there if anything goes horribly wrong.

Is there a flaw in my plan? Is there something about temple of the gods that means it wouldn’t be a valid target for word of recall?

I included the part of the temples of the gods quote about casting it every day for a year to make the temple permanent, since I wondered if the temporary nature of a temple I just conjured into existence that will only remain there for 24 hours would somehow interfere with word of recall, but I’m hoping that a temple, no matter how temporary or how it came into being, is still a temple as far as word of recall is concerned…

Who decide which check to make on a recall knowledge action?

In Pathfinder 2, a character can attempt a Recall Knowledge check to get some information about a monster. There are several skills that can be used for such checks, but only some of them work for any monster.

Let’s assume a player decides to use Recall Knowledge on an animated armor (as a Construct it can be identified with either Arcana or Crafting). How does it work? Here are two guesses:

  • The player chooses one skill she wants to use (either Arcana, Crafting, or maybe Religion if she thinks it might be an armor possessed by a ghost). The player rolls and the DM tells her about what she learns regarding that specific skill (for example if the player chose the skill Nature and rolled well the DM would say “this is definitely not an animal, a plant, a fey, or some other natural thing”)
  • The DM tells the player about which skill to roll (depending on what the monster is and which skills the character is trained in). The player rolls this skill and eventually get more information.

The first hypothesis seems more natural to me as a DM but my players told me it wasn’t supposed to work like that. Who is right?

Can I have multiple sanctuaries with Word of Recall?

I read the spell and it doesn’t seem to be limited by number of sanctuaries — rather only that it is a place dedicated to my chosen deity.

You and up to five willing creatures within 5 feet of you instantly teleport to a previously designated sanctuary.

It doesn’t state ‘the previously’ dedicated sanctuary, only ‘a’ previously designated sanctuary. Also later it does not state that the number of sanctuaries is limited.

Is this correct? I intend to use it to traverse continents in our current campaign if multiple sanctuaries is allowed.

Can you choose the spell slot level when using boon of spell recall? [duplicate]

Boon of spell recall (p 232 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide) Says that you can cast any spell you know or have prepared without using a spell slot.

Can that spell be cast at a higher level than the minimum required to cast the spell?

For example could I cast magic missile as a 9th lv spell (assuming I normally had 9th lv spell slots)?

My reason for thinking that you can is that other boons (like spell mastery) specify that the spells are cast at their lowest level. While Boon of spell recall does not.

What are the mechanical benefits of Recall Knowledge on enemies?

In the comments for another question it was implied that that Monster Hunter (Ranger feat 1) was great, because it lets you identify a monster as a free action.

Knowing a monster’s AC, saves, resistances and vulnerabilities would indeed be great, but I could not find any such thing at Recall Knowledge’s description (CRB p239).

Is there any guideline on what I will learn, or is it completely up to the DM?

How likely is critically succeeding on a Recall Knowledge check to identify a creature?

Monster Hunter (Ranger 1, CRB p171) gives you a minor benefit if you critically succeed on a Recall Knowledge check to identify a creature.

Recall Knowledge only says

The GM determines the DCs for such checks and which skills apply.

I feel if I spend a feat for such a small benefit1, the success should be almost guaranteed.
On first level a typical Ranger’s Nature skill is around 5, all other identification capable skills are likely below that. At the same time an Easy Untrained DC is 8, the critical threshold is about 10 higher than “guaranteed”.

Do I miss something, or is this a very weak feat, at least until quite high levels?


1) it has 85% chance not to make any difference for you, and it takes a party of 5 to get this down below 50%

Precision, Recall, F-score requiring equal inputs

I am looking at precision , recall and f-score using Sklearn from sklearn.metrics import precision_score

    y_true = np.array(["one", "two", "three"])     y_pred = np.array(["one", "two"])      precision = precision_score(y_true, y_pred, average=None)     print(precision) 

The error returned is

  ValueError: Found input variables with inconsistent numbers of samples: [3, 2] 

Due to the imbalanced input arrays. Why does Sklearn require and equal amount of inputs ? Particularly when evaluating recall, which I would have thought was taking more guesses than answers.

I can implement my own metrics or just reduce the arrays so they match, I want to be sure there is no underlying reason why I shouldn’t ?
