@CedricMas @UkraineFrontDaily #tip UKR operations (infantry and fire actions) have been intensifying for over 3 days now in the active frontline segments: Orikhiv and Velika Novosilvka, but also in Kamianske, on the rear of the Bakhmut front and in the North-Eastern front (Siversk - Kreminna).

@CedricMas @UkraineFrontDaily #tip Another big day of fighting (and artillery fire) yesterday.
Beware of those announcing a pause or reduction in activity or efforts (it's not true). The stability of the front is only apparent (especially if you're far from the conflict).

Armor Class (AC) determines how difficult a creature is to hit, higher meaning more difficult to hit.

Armor increases AC. Most armor adds your Dexterity (Dex) modifier to your AC. Heavy armor doesn't scale with Dex and requires a certain amount of Strength (Str) to wear.

Shields increase AC by a flat +2 and can be wielded with a one-handed weapon.

Monsters generally do not "wear" armor in the traditional sense and have a flat AC.

Some weapons have special properties that affect how they are used, these properties are displayed with letters in the shop.

V = Versatile, allows you to use a one-handed weapon as a two-handed weapon if your other hand is empty.
T = Thrown, allows you to throw the weapon as a ranged attack.
L = Light, allows you to equip the weapon alongside another Light weapon.

Dice rolls are the bread and butter to almost every mechanic. They have the form xdy+z, where x is the number of dice, y is the number of die sides, and z is a flat modifier to add/subtract.

For example, "3d4+6" means to roll 3, 4 sided dice, sum the result, and add 6.

Some "rolls" are constants, e.g. "4", in which case the number 4 is always used.

I think one of the best practice I learn recently when developing with #Qt for python is to just read the code source. I think this applies in a lot of situation but it work perfectly here.
You find the Qt doc not so clear? Why is it not working why it should? Stuck?

Just open the qt c++ code source and start looking for your module. Pretty easy with github dev:

Monster attacks will always prefer actions with damage, unless only non-damaging actions are available. Non-damaging actions do 1 damage.

Some monsters have "multi-attacks" in which they use multiple actions at once.

Some monsters have attacks with DC checks, in which case the character rolls dice to try to avoid the damage.

🔒 Privacy Pro Tip! 🔒

If, like me, you find yourself using apps that have a reputation for being a bit invasive (yes, TikTok, I'm looking at you!), here's a nifty trick to help protect your personal space even while you indulge in some entertaining content.

Consider installing these privacy-invading apps inside Android's "Work Profile." 📱 What's that, you ask? It's like having a secret sandbox where these apps can play, away from your personal data and sensitive information.

How to do it? Well, there's a cool open-source app called "Shelter" that can help you set up this sandboxed environment. It's like giving these apps their own little world to roam in, while your personal stuff stays safe and sound.

So, why not give it a whirl? Your privacy deserves a little extra love, and Shelter's got your back. 🛡️

Attacks are performed in the following steps:
1. Attack Roll. Attacker rolls a 1d20, adding any proficiency and attack modifier bonuses. Monsters add a flat "to hit" bonus.
2. If the Attack Roll is greater than or equal to the attackee's AC, the attack hits.
3. Damage Roll. Attacker rolls the damage dice associated with the attack and adds attack modifier bonuses. Usually a minimum of 1.
4. Sum of the Damage Roll is subtracted from the attackee's hitpoints.

On a brighter note I deal with #Xcode’s lack of cross-file templates when making conformance extension by first defining conformance in main structure like so:
Struct Person: Encodable {
}
Then in the struct’s body, I do something like `codingKeys` and press TAB in order to insert the template. Then I do the same with the `encodeTo` method and then I move stuff out to new file, such as `Person+EncodableConformance.swift` and remove the conformance from `person.swift`. Nice and clean. And shit is in order. #programming #tip

Random #tip for using the #Fediverse: not everyone is going to like you, or agree with you when you post something--just like in real life (or on other social networks)--stop expecting everyone to be exactly like you. That is what mute, block, filter is for. Also, if you're very sensitive to that, post "followers only" and NOT public, and block/remove people that annoy you. (this is not aimed at any one person or thing, just an observation of various gripes going around).

Note: Never ask your #IT folks to commit a crime.

Best case scenario is they help you & now have every shred of evidence to hang you out to dry. Flip & walk away like Kevin Spacey.

Worst case: Either due to the professional #ethics inherent with the position (entrusted with all of the organiztions data) or an acute sense of self preservation also inherent to the position they refuse & am become witness bringer of receipts.

A message coming from a mathematics instance. Messages are malformed because it's a mathematics formula with a specific encoding.
At the bottom of the message, Fedilab will detect this and suggest you to transform it into a readable message with the Sum button.
Once clicked the message becomes readable (in mathematics).
You can even write a mathematics formula with a viewer.

From a parent to people who want to be good friends:

**Save friends’ kids’ birthdays in your calendar.** And congratulate your friends on the day of their kids’ birthdays.

It means the world because it shows you care about what your friend cares most about. It means more to your friend than congratulating them with their own birthday ever will.
