Crafting a higher level scroll

I am a wizard who can cast 2nd level arcane spells. I want to create a scroll of a 3rd level arcane spell. Would this even be possible?

Under the creating magic item rules

The DC to create a magic item increases by 5 for each prerequisite the caster does not meet. The only exception to this is the requisite item creation feat, which is mandatory. In addition, you cannot create potions, spell-trigger, or spell-completion magic items without meeting its prerequisites.

But nothing specifically says what the prerequisites are. Not scrolls further down, not scribe scrolls feat, not the page on magic items scrolls.

Learning the spell isnt an issue as under the magic rules for adding new spells to a wizards spellbook doesnt have any restriction on the level of spell compared to your own casting ability.

Scribe scrolls stated that you are able to craft a scroll of ANY spell you know.

On the crafting magic items page it says that the feat is required as well as one of three skills. It also TALKS about casting the spell but that doesnt have required next to it.

Create a scroll with higher than default DC

When a scroll is crafted the DC for the effect is always set to the lowest possibly ability score.

$ $ \begin{array}{l|l|l} \text{Spell Level} & \text{Lowest Ability Score} & \text{Final DC} \ \hline 0 & 10 (+0) & 10 \ 1 & 11 (+0) & 11 \ 2 & 12 (+1) & 13 \ 3 & 13 (+1) & 14 \ 4 & 14 (+2) & 16 \ 5 & 15 (+2) & 17 \ 6 & 16 (+3) & 19 \ 7 & 17 (+3) & 20 \ 8 & 18 (+4) & 22 \ 9 & 19 (+4)& \ \end{array} $ $

Yes its possible to create a 1st level spell as a 4th level spell to bypass less globe of invulnerability using heighten spell. What I am asking is it possible to create a 1st level scroll but increase the DC by changing the ability score? I know the rules do not have this or else the formula would state it. Is there a class ability to create a scroll (not use it as I know there are one or two which allows you to use your ability scroll or caster level) with this higher DC?

How do I correct a stuck “scroll down” behavior in Zowie/BenQ EC-1A mouse?

I have a relatively new BenQ/Zowie EC1-A. Though I don’t use it for gaming, this mouse has rave reviews on many Linux gaming sites.

The odd thing is that once in a while (every few hours of use – often shortly after a reboot), the scroll wheel goes into an “infinite down” scroll. I can scroll up briefly, but it immediately shoots back to the bottom as soon as I stop.

I can restore the correct behavior by unplugging the mouse and plugging it back in. Still, it sometimes recurs after a short while.

While this feature is useful for getting to the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of a spam email quickly, I do occasionally like to read more than the bottom screenful of an article.

Any advice on how to correct this problem?

I am running a fully patched Kubuntu (meaning Xorg, not Wayland!) version 18.04.3.

Do you need to hold concentration on a spell when you casted it with a spell scroll?

I’m currently running Out of the Abyss, and my group is about to encounter a mage with a description that says

If the characters become hostile, [the mage] orders them to depart, lest they provoke the wrath of his all-powerful master. If attacked, he uses his globe of invulnerability scroll, casts fly on himself, and flies into the chasm.

Both spells are concentration spells so I’m not sure if this is an error in the module, if you don’t need concentration for scrolls, or if I read the paragraph wrong and he just uses the scroll first, runs away, and then proceeds to cast fly and fly away.

So my question is: Do I need to hold concentration for concentration spells cast with a spell scroll?

gnome terminal in full-screen: brightness varies autonomously on scroll. Annoying (Ubuntu 16.04)

The title says it all.

One chooses to put the shell in full-screen to maybe inspect a long log, scrolling through it. Continuous unrequested brightness changes which seem introduced by design (their happening is repeatable at the same points when scrolling up and down) are really annoying, and I can’t find anything about this behaviour neither in settings/preferences nor googling around … (a lot about how to set this brightness at system and at application level, but nothing about this behaviour).

How can I turn off this behaviour? I am also interested in understanding the reason behind this “feature”.

But I might have seached ineffectively due to my bad english. So if anybody can direct me to the right link, that would be great!

In 5e, can a Rope Trick Spell Scroll and a Bag of Holding open up the gate to the astral plane?

I am aware that the rope trick spell alone cannot open a gate to the astral plane when combined with a bag of holding, as per this Q&A: Does a bag of holding burst if brought into the space created by Rope Trick?

But according to the bag of holding description:

Placing a bag of holding inside an extradimensional space created by a Handy Haversack, Portable Hole, or similar item instantly destroys both items and opens a gate to the Astral Plane

Considering the extradimensional space would have been created by an item, would a Rope Trick spell scroll count in this scenario?

Can a level 1 Fiend Pact warlock cast a scroll of fireball?

A level 1 Fiend Pact warlock finds a scroll of fireball. The spell fireball is not on the base warlock spell list. If a spell is not on your list, you cannot even try to cast it from a scroll. That said, it is on the Fiend Pact’s expanded spell list, which states:

The following spells are added to the warlock spell list for you.

This doesn’t appear to be limited by warlock level (unlike a cleric’s Domain Spells list), but I may be missing some key statement. Can a level 1 Fiend Pact warlock cast a scroll of fireball (after making a DC 13 Charisma check)?

Are scroll bars dead in 2019?

I recently heard a designer say something to the effect that modern web designs don’t use visual scrollbars – or at least they’re only visible when scrolling. I’m a front-end developer and hadn’t really heard this. Is there any truth to this? Specifically my question is:

For a web app, when content is scrollable:

  1. Should there ever be visible scroll bars (and why)?
  2. Should there ever not be visible scroll bars (and why not)?
