Can a simulacrum true polymorphed into an archmage regain spell slots?

Followup to: Can a simulacrum "regain" HP by being True Polymorphed into a creature that can do so normally?

So this is a particularly ridiculous idea, but it might work.

A simulacrum normally cannot regain spell slots, but a spellcasting monster can. An archmage is in the table of monsters (with a CR of 12!) so it is definitely a valid true polymorph target. Spellcasting monsters recover spell slots by long rest, just like players.

The accepted answer on the other question has the text “The simulacrum’s statistics are replaced.”

Can a simulacrum true polymorphed into an archmage regain spell slots?

What’s the reason of both “Allow-Origin: *” and “Allow-Credentials: true” headers?

MDN says that attempting to use Access-control-allow-origin: * with credentials should result in an error.

Taking this into account, why so many major companies’ APIs (spotify, twilio, among many others) return both Access-control-allow-origin: * and Access-control-allow-credentials: true response headers?

True Resurrection after True Polymorph?

Can True Resurrection be used to attempt to restore a creature that was originally created by True Polymorph, from an object? Basically, True Polymorph an object into a (sentient/sapient?) creature. Assuming it was named, something happens and it dies, reverting to a piece of furniture (maybe it fell in lava, was disintegrated?) then, someone attempts True Resurrection, not knowing about the polymorph, or maybe being super-optimistic. What would the end result be? Nothing? A comatose/soulless body? Pinnochio becomes a real boy? As TR makes specific mention of the creature’s soul, would I be correct in assuming that the spell would still create a body, but nothing more?

Can you True Polymorph your Simulacrum into a real wizzard? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Can I make an exact copy of myself and my equipment using True Polymorph on a simulacrum? 2 answers

It’s pretty much all up there in the question… But just to clarify, You (a wizard of great power):

  1. Make a simulacrum of yourself.
  2. Cast True Polymorph on it to make it a real human/elf/whathaveyou.
  3. Have just created a copy of yourself?

And if yes, what could it do? Does it still have to obey your every word? Can it regain spells? Can you create a second simulacrum now (again with yet another variant of the simulacrum -> wish -> army of simulacra curfuffle)? Or does it in a very Manshoonesque fashion proceed to murder you immediately?

Can an invisible creature with Mind Blank be seen by a creature with True Seeing?

True Seeing is a Divination spell that states

For the Duration, the creature has Truesight

While Mind Blank states

one willing creature you touch is immune to […] Divination Spells

Let’s say that the Rogue was cast Invisibility and Mind Blank, and the Wizard cast True Seeing on himself. The discussion at my table hinges on the fact that True Seeing doesn’t target or affect the Mind Blanked rogue, so his immunity is not relevant. The Wizard would simply gain Truesight and would spot him.

How do these spells interact?

I have a demon’s true name. Now what?

In the D&D 5e game I am DMing, one of my players (level 15 fiend patron warlock) successfully cast dominate monster on a hezrou and compelled it to tell the player its true name. Now the player has the demon’s true name.

What can a player do with a demon’s true name, particularly if the demon is already on the Material Plane?

I know that true names are useful for summoning spells such as gate and summon greater demon, as discussed here. But those aren’t helpful if the demon is already present. Traditionally, true names grant a large degree of power over fiends and are guarded jealously, but in 5e it appears that true names aren’t that useful outside the summon greater demon spell from Xanathar’s Guide to Everything.

If it helps, this warlock player has an archdevil as his patron. This archdevil can hold the true name and threaten its release or use if the hezrou does not comply with the player’s demands (which is harder to subvert than the player threatening release of the name by his own power). While the threat of a true name being released is also one traditional form of leverage over a demon, true names need to actually be useful and dangerous for this threat to have any value.

Can a creature be True Polymorphed into a corpse and then raised?

Inspired by If a corpse is polymorphed into a creature, does it retain personality?

True Polymorph can turn a creature into an object

Creature into Object. If you turn a creature into an object, it transforms along with whatever it is wearing and carrying into that form. The creature’s statistics become those of the object, and the creature has no memory of time spent in this form, after the spell ends and it returns to its normal form.

Since a corpse is an object, a creature can be True Polymorphed into a corpse.

Can it then be raised, by a spell such as revivify or true resurrection?

If a Dragon under the effects of their Change Shape feature is cloned, can the cloned Dragon revert to their true form?

Some dragons have the Change Shape feature. For example, the Ancient Gold Dragon’s Change Shape feature reads as follows:

Change Shape. The dragon magically polymorphs into a humanoid or beast that has a challenge rating no higher than its own, or back into its true form. It reverts to its true form if it dies. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying is absorbed or borne by the new form (the dragon’s choice).

In a new form, the dragon retains its alignment, hit points, Hit Dice, ability to speak, proficiencies, Legendary Resistance, lair actions, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores, as well as this action. Its statistics and capabilities are otherwise replaced by those of the new form, except any class features or legendary actions of that form.

This seems to make it eligible for the Clone spell, which reads as follows (emphasis mine):

This spell grows an inert duplicate of a living, Medium creature as a safeguard against death. This clone forms inside a sealed vessel and grows to full size and maturity after 120 days; you can also choose to have the clone be a younger version of the same creature. It remains inert and endures indefinitely, as long as its vessel remains undisturbed.

At any time after the clone matures, if the original creature dies, its soul transfers to the clone, provided that the soul is free and willing to return. The clone is physically identical to the original and has the same personality, memories, and abilities, but none of the original’s equipment. The original creature’s physical remains, if they still exist, become inert and can’t thereafter be restored to life, since the creature’s soul is elsewhere.

Now, presumably if you used Clone on a creature under the effects of True Polymorph, the spell would only clone the active layer of True Polymorph, meaning that the base creature underneath would not get cloned. However, the dragon’s Change Shape feature specifically grants it the ability to transform back into its true form with an action. I suppose my confusion is just what that means for the cloned creature. Could it still turn back into its dragon-form with an action, or would its “true form” now just be its cloned form, making this action essentially useless?
