Ways to summon a specific creature (fiend)

I need to summon a specific extraplanar creature, whom I’ve met recently and whose name I know.

Apart from the spells Planar Ally:

If you know a specific creature’s name, you can speak that name when you cast this spell to request that creature, though you might get a different creature anyway (DM’s choice).

and Gate:

When you cast this spell, you can speak the name of a specific creature (a pseudonym, title, or nickname doesn’t work). If that creature is on a plane other than the one you are on, the portal opens in the named creature’s immediate vicinity and draws the creature through it to the nearest unoccupied space on your side of the portal.

what are my options for summoning this particular creature?

Assume the creature is willing and need not be pacified. If you can’t generalize, an answer applicable to only some creature types (fiends, fey, devils, etc) is acceptable.

Are there ways to increase your reach when helping somebody escape a net?

The Net’s description states:

A creature can use its action to make a DC 10 Strength check, freeing itself or another creature within its reach on a success.

Every way I have found of increasing your reach only increases it for attacks that you make: Reach weapons, monster attacks, bugbear’s long-limbed, the Battle Master Fighter’s Reaching Attack Maneuver, and the Four Elements Monk’s Fangs of the Fire Snake feature.

Ways of hiding the reviewer’s identity from the entity being reviewed


Let’s suppose I have a platform much like Yelp, but it’s only for ONE small town (80k inhabitants) and it only has listings of workers, not businesses.

In such a small town, most people are close in the social network. That means that it’s relatively easy for a person to stumble across another.

The problem

If Mary hires John for a job, but then Mary doesn’t like the end result of John’s work and leaves him a bad review on the platform, how to give Mary the option to hide her identity in order to avoid any awkward situation in the case she stumbles across John? Not only awkward situations but also harassment from John, which is a possibility, am I right?

Why just hiding her name doesn’t work:

If John had only one client (Mary) in a long period of time, and then shortly after the job he gets an anonymous bad review, he would do the Math in his head and know the author of the review must be Mary.

My solution

I thought of only releasing anonymous reviews by groups of 2 or more, so that John couldn’t know for sure who is the person behind the review.

The questions

Feel free to answer any one (or all) of these.

  • Have you faced a problem like this? How did you solve it?
  • Can you think of ways I can improve my solution?
  • Is this an old problem I’m not aware of? If so, is there any better solution?

What are some ways of getting a Shell From Windows Control Panel?

I recently was on an engagement where I had to escape from a kiosk on a medical device that was running windows 10. I managed to drop it to the control panel and got a shell by

  1. testing compatibility of windows debugger
  2. Attach it to a process running as system
  3. add a break point a .shell cmd.exe \k
  4. interrupt the process –> shell

This got me thinking– what other ways can you think of to go from control panel to a cmd shell?

Note that this was device was protected from obvious things like

  • pulling up ie and accessing files
  • navigating to system32
  • running cmd.exe directly
  • run

What are the ways to trigger Root Actor from Rest controller?

I am new to Akka, so not sure if this is an easy question. My current setup is something like this : I have a Rest Controller, which is getting lots of requests from different hosts. These requests then get queued into a common queue. From where they are dequeued by 4 worker threads. As the scale increased, this model started failing. Instead of creating and managing these threads and queue, I want to replace it with Akka model.

In the new model, I will have a RootActor, which will have different child actors based on type of request. Now where I am currently struggling is how to ‘send message’ to RootActor, whenever the RestController receive requests. In short, I am trying to interact with RootActor from outside of the ActorSystem. Couple of ideas which I thought about :

  1. Make RootActor itself a Controller. But that looked like coupling different concerns together.
  2. Use some Message Queue. Controller will keep pushing events on one side, Actor can keep listening to them from the other side.

Is there any other standard way to do this? As much as I searched, couldn’t find anything like this (which is suggesting I’m approaching the problem in the wrong way?). Any helpful links or design practices would be great. Thanks in advance!
