dnd 5e – How dangerous is this modified exhaustion compared to other harmful conditions?

Pretty powerful.

The problem with it, compared to other harmful conditions – it doesn’t go away without a spell. Most effects that cause stun or paralyze (or most other harmful conditions) have a very limited time (like ‘until next turn’) or allow a save every round and often have options like ‘when you’ve saved – you are immune’.

And even three levels of exhaustion can put party in quite a serious disadvantage in combat.
1st level – gives them disadvantage on ability checks – which may be not that often used in combat, but still sometimes called for – casters use it to counter higher-level spells, for example.
2nd level – halves movement – which means that with some smart maneuvering – melee fighters are out of combat as enemies would always outrun them (if battlefield allows for it, of course). And fragile casters would have troubles escaping from harm.
3rd level – disadavantage on attack rolls and saving throws – affects all the party, so only caster with save-based spells are more or less unaffected.

And there is no way to remove such condition, except for burning a spell slot or healing ability. So, as an ability that monster(s) can spam every turn – it feels a bit overpowered. It may work as an ability that monster can fire once or twice per combat – though still feels quite powerful (assuming that there is more than one monster of such kind).

How dangerous is exhaustion?

I’m interested in adding exhaustion effects to monsters.

Related questions:

There is this question about causing exhaustion:
Are there any ways to force levels of exhaustion onto another creature?

There is question about removing it:

And this question about making a spell causing it: What level should this exhaustion-causing spell be?

Considerations

  • When looking at exhaustion (mostly from a combat perspective), the first two levels of exhaustion seem rather benign. The 3rd and 4th have a high impact on combat performance. By 5th level one is basically done for.

  • The linked question above about removing exhaustion shows that this is a hassle.

  • There are apparently no official monsters with such an effect. Though, there is the accursed defiler from Kobold Press’s Tome of Beasts which is not official but at least playtested.

Question

How can I account for an exhaustion effect when balancing a monster? Assume a monster with one attack per turn which after dealing damage asks for a saving throw to avoid one level of exhaustion.

I assume this would have a high impact, so I would also consider adding it as an x/day attack instead or capping the exhaustion stacking at level 3 or 4.

If you have good reasons to say this is a bad idea, please tell me as well.

safety – In Poland, is/are there any region dangerous for non-white people to visit?

From 2016, Poland saw the rise of right-wing nationalists.

In Poland, are there any cities or special regions in cities which are dangerous for non-white people to go to?

I mean, are there any cities or areas in cities in which predominantly white supremacists live and they are antagonistic to non-white people, and which are dangerous as a result?

email – Gmail: This message seems dangerous

Ok, I am working on an invite system for my work, the invite system sends an email to the recipient with a link containing a unique token allowing them to sign up.

The issue is, now that I am actually testing it, the emails are marked as “This message seems dangerous” by gmail, This looks really bad for the company. I have not been able to find any information on what triggers this.

error message

The email is being sent via office365(SMTP) as that is what our email is set up with to try and avoid this kind of thing.

I have seen comments online that it may be due to the token link, If so, how else am I meant to do this?

safety – In Germany, are there any cities or special regions in cities which are dangerous for non-white people to go to?

I have been living as a white, non-obvious foreigner in Germany for more than 25 years. Nationalism used to be frowned upon until recently, at least the subject was rarely discussed openly, but there are strong, dormant xenophobic tendencies in large parts of the German society, even if noone speaks about it. In the last few years, the nationalist and racist political party AfD has experienced a huge increase in support and is in several municipalities in the eastern parts of Germany the largest political party by number of votes. Expressing racist and xenophobic hatred has definitively become more wide-spread and socially accepted just during the last few years.

I am personally not at all easily scared, but there are for sure areas which I would have avoided, if I had looked obviously ‘different’, at least some districts in Berlin and many rural areas in the eastern parts of Germany. There are also a few ‘nazi villages’ in eastern Germany, of which Jamel in Mecklenburg probably is the most famous.

There is of course a large step from having an opinion and to act out violence against foreigners. It is not self-evident that in certain areas of Germany, someone will wait for you behind every rock, looking forward for any chance to beat up a non-white. Racial motivation has been recorded in crime statistics since 1990 and since then, there have been about 200 racially motivated murders. In the recent years, there have been some 1000 to 2000 yearly cases of racially motivated violence across the country. With millions of foreigners living in Germany and many more millions visiting Germany every year, the chances that anything will happen to you are as you can see in general very small. There are however areas with much more violence than in other areas and you might want to avoid them.

In Poland, Is/are there any region dangerous for non-white people to visit to?

I know that Praga is a dangerous area in Warsaw because of mugging.

But, Poland is also famous for white supremacists.

Is there any region in Poland that is a no-go zone for non-white foreigners because of possible white-supremacist attacks?

safety – Is Morocco dangerous, in particular for a Jewish American?

It is safe for you.

Jews have been part of the history of Morocco. Maybe they existed before Islam but they came to Morocco when they were expelled after Spain took back “Al Andalous” from Muslims, who returned to Morocco as well.

Nowadays, there are aren’t as many because of migration to Israel (because of their beliefs they must go to what they call “home”, as well as to enhance their quality of life). However, there is an important Jewish community still today in Morocco, and they don’t encounter issues.

I can give you some examples of famous Jews in Morocco: Gad El Maleh, a comedian originally from Casablanca, popular with many Moroccans like him. Another of prominance is André Azolay, a consultant to the King.

To conclude, Moroccans do not have any problems with Jews; Jews are part of Morocco. The problems they have can be Israel as a country. But in Morocco, we don’t confuse the two, Jews and Israel.

Is 5G radiation dangerous?

Some opponents claim it can cause global extinctions and also cancer, eye damage, much more. Also, some claim enemy forces can use it against a population.

Anyway, it is in the process of being rolled out now in major nations.
