dnd 3.5e – Trip Mechanic Question

Making a Trip Attack: Make an unarmed melee touch attack against your target. This provokes an attack of opportunity from your target as normal for unarmed attacks.
If your attack succeeds, make a Strength check opposed by the defender’s Dexterity or Strength check (whichever ability score has the higher modifier). A combatant gets a +4 bonus for every size category he is larger than Medium or a –4 penalty for every size category he is smaller than Medium. The defender gets a +4 bonus on his check if he has more than two legs or is otherwise more stable than a normal humanoid (such as a dwarf ). If you win, you trip the defender. If you lose, the defender may immediately
react and make a Strength check opposed by your Dexterity or Strength check to try to trip you. Avoiding Attacks of Opportunity: If you have the Improved Trip

My question has to deal with weapons with the statement. I am copying directly from PHB 3.5

Chain, Spiked: A spiked chain has reach, so you can strike opponents 10 feet away with it. In addition, unlike most other weapons with reach, it can be used against an adjacent foe. Because the chain can wrap around an enemy’s leg or other limb, you can make trip attacks with it.

My questions:

Do weapons with this description provide a free trip attempt after a
successful attack (Dealing Damage), or is one just using the weapon instead of the
unarmed attack hitting the touch AC, dealing no damage? 

If the above answer is yes, a free trip attempt after dealing damage, then;  if one 
has the Improved Trip Feat, do they still get the free attack after a successful trip?

australia – Work trip to two Australian clients – letters of invitation and visa extension

My friend is an Italian specialist who travels quite often for work; in April he’ll have to go to Australia to fix a problem for Client A.

The client has sent him a Letter of Invitation that will allow him to apply for a work visa for the whole month.

Due to Covid restrictions, he’ll have to quarantine for half of that time; this was accounted for, the problem of Client A can be fixed in the remaining time.

Now Client B, also Australian, wants to hire my friend for a couple of weeks in May.

A and B are not direct competitors, but A is not in the mood of doing any free favours to B, so they won’t extend their Letter of Invitation to cover May too.

My friend can get a Letter of Invitation from B for the two weeks in May, but such a letter will include the date of entry – what would that date be? By the time the invitation from Client B comes into effect, he will have been in Australia for a full month!

Can Client B somehow extend the invitation of Client A, even if the two firms are not on speaking terms? Is there some other solution that does not involve exiting the country and doing another quarantine?

canada – 16 Hour Marine Atlantic Ferry Trip with no Cabin

Marine Atlantic operates 16 hour overnight ferry trips from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Argentina, Newfoundland on the MV Atlantic Vision. As I understand it, you can bring a car, but you cannot access your car during the trip.

Purchasing a cabin is optional (and expensive) so I’d rather not. Are there relatively quiet places where people won’t bother you if you want to catch some sleep overnight, or do you really need to book a cabin if you want to sleep at all?

europe – Can I go from Paris to London by train on a one-day trip?

Well it’s POSSIBLE. The train ride is 2.5 hours, roughly, plus time in customs/waiting. So yeah, you could do it.

However, should you? No. If you only have three days, don’t spend what’s realistically 8 hours once you include waiting and travel time, unless you’re a real train fan and want to try out the Eurostar.

IF however, you do, then you’ll arrive at King’s Cross / St Pancras in London. You could feasibly get to see Tower Bridge, Big Ben, ride the London Eye (if you get a short queue), and explore one of the parks, and walk past Buckingham Palace if you really wanted. Which sounds like a lot, but it’s all quite close together.

I had a short weekend in Paris a few years back for a friend’s birthday, before continuing on to Slovakia. I still want to go back – Paris seriously has SO much to do and see. Moulin Rouge, walking the river, checking out some markets, Notre Dame, catacombs (those are really worth seeing!), and more. I say use those valuable hours to see Paris in more detail, rather than potentially rushing two cities.

australia – Travel Insurance for US Citizens for a year-long trip

In a few months, I will be going to Australia on a Work and Holiday Visa for a year to travel and work. I am looking for a place to get health/travel insurance for my time there. Does anyone know of any good companies to do this (for US citizens)? In addition, I would like to have “sports” coverage as I intend on SCUBA diving, skydiving, etc.

Lastly, I will be graduating from college and my health insurance will be ending about when I leave. Therefore, I was wondering if it is possible to get some travel/health insurance that stands on its own and that I don’t need a primary insurance back home.

usa – Can I make a leisure trip to California (vacation) in the current covid-19 situation as of 2021?

I am planning a vacation trip out of state to California, found a deal that will work for the president day trip but then there was this warning to check the california travel rules]1 updated as of Jan 6, 2021. That link says

  1. Non-essential travelers from other states or countries are strongly discouraged from entering California, and should adhere to
    the quarantine procedures set forth in Paragraph 3.

And then para 3 basically says that you should quarantine yourself for 10 days when you arrive in or return to california.

My question is, can I take a leisure travel to california by Air out of state? Will my quarantine be mandated? Since I will be travelling for few days, my trip would be useless if I had to quarentine myself. What is sane advice that I should take? How much of risk I am putting myself and others in the current covid-19 situation?

china – US citizen, traveling to Shanghai with Taiwan layover then a trip to Taiwan NOT for a layover. Do I need a visa?

I will be traveling to Shanghai for 4 days from NYC through Taipei. My layover is long, about 9 hours. I will be traveling back to Taipei but this time I won’t be on a layover, but rather will travel back to NYC after a week in Taiwan.

My original plan was with a layover through Chicago then direct to Shanhai, but the departure from NYC was bad, and the best I can find is through Taipei.

Will I be able to do visa-free transit, or will my layover in Taipei and then return to Taipei require me to apply for a tourist visa to visit Shanghai?

Many thanks.
