Everything previewed in the Strixhaven UAs sucked, and everything else rocks

2021.12.07 18:59 TigerKirby215 Everything previewed in the Strixhaven UAs sucked, and everything else rocks

I don't know if this is a "hot take" but Strixhaven really impressed me. Four prewritten adventures that can be run either as individual adventures or a full level 1 - 10 campaign, great inspiration to roleplay an in-depth Strixhaven student, fantastically fun and flavorful magic items, a surprising amount of simple rules that can be adapted for things other than Strixhaven, a good variety of monsters that can be slotted into any campaign, and oh man so many awesome NPCs with absolutely fantastic character art.
But the only two things which we knew were coming (the Owlin and spells based on the scrapped Strixhaven classes) really feel lacking to me. Let's start with the Owlin first: the race had two very unique abilities in UA, being the innate Detect Magic and the ability to stop themselves from falling with their wings. Both of these abilities were scrapped and we're left with... what? A race with a 30 foot walking speed, 30 foot flying speed (while in Light armor only), 120 foot darkvision (because I guess WoTC doesn't browse dndmemes), proficiency in the Stealth skill and uhhh... That's about it, really. I don't want to compare owls to eagles but this is basically just a reprint of the Aaracokra, with a reasonable flying speed in exchange for unreasonable darkvision and a free skill. What should've been a cool race with some innate magic and nimble flight ends up feeling like an Aaracokra reprint that was rebalanced to be a functional race, with a side order of "I HAVE DARKVISION" memes. (It'll still probably be banned in AL though lmao)
And the spells; oh lord the spells. Let's exclude the fact that the magic school book came with a whopping five total spells, with half of them being fun new additions to the game and the other half being ludicrously overpowered to the point of being game breaking. The internet as a whole has already tore into Silvery Barbs but can we talk about Wither and Bloom? I guess Wizards (and Sorcerers) can heal now? "Ohhh but it uses hit die" yeah and you can upcast this on the Barbarian in the middle of a crowd of enemies to do 4d6 to everyone and also heal the Barb for 3d12 + your INT mod. I honestly don't mind Wither and Bloom much as a spell but it's the principle of giving Wizards healing that bugs me.
Strixhaven is in this odd place where I'm happy with my purchase yet disappointed at the same time. While people are unhappy when UA is barely changed when published (Twilight Cleric) I don't think it's that outlandish to be similarly disappointed when the published product barely resembles its UA counterpart. The scrapped Strixhaven classes were going to receive big changes but the spells we got feel mediocre to say the least. And the Owlin now feel like they exist more out of necessity than a desire to provide new powerful player options.
I know that for my games I'm going to be giving the Owlin their Detect Magic back in exchange for some of that absolutely excessive darkvision. I'm also going to take a good hard look both the official Strixhaven spells and the scrapped classes to try and compose a more comprehensive spell list. I think Strixhaven is great but I shouldn't feel the need to homebrew and "fix" things in the book. Everything which I can adapt for my own campaigns is wonderful but I can't help but feel that what few player options were included were done so as an afterthought, with UA serving only to advertise a book to players that's 90% DM content.

2021.12.07 18:59 Nerezarga Which Welder Should I purchase

I have a bbq pit on a trailer I am doing work on, and was thinking of getting the Miller Thunderbolt 210: https://www.millerwelds.com/equipment/welders/stick-smaw/thunderbolt-210-m30148 The problem is that the power at my house is terrible, and trips the breaker when using my Miter Saw, so I imagine it would be worse with a welder, but that being said, I was looking at generators as well, may go with this one: https://www.duromaxpower.com/products/duromax-xp13000e-13000-watt-portable-gas-electric-start-generator Am I on the right track? with these 2, should I just get an engine driven welder? From what I can tell, that generator is the recommended size for the 210, am I correct in that assumption? Any recommendations otherwise?

2021.12.07 18:59 jorgeribs Ninebot Max Handlebar Alignment

Hi everyone, I've had a Ninebot Max for 4 months now and so far it's been great. One thing I did notice is that the handlebar is not aligned with the front wheel. I can't find any videos related specifically to the Ninebot Max, although I do find some for other scooters. I don't want to mess it up. Are there any online resources where I could learn how to do it? Alternatively I could take it to a bike shop, but I don't want to pay for something that I think could be easily fixed. Thanks in advance!

Also, bonus question: the little screen says "Eco" in green letters. What is that? Is there a non-Eco mode that goes faster? Thnx

The "Your Top Songs 2021" is there a way to remove the artist speech, like the thank you for letting us be in your wrapped 2021 thing. I like my wrapped playlist but I would like to have a continuous playlist with music without some random artist speech.

2021.12.07 18:59 Raigef Visa health insurance Advice please.

Greetings!.
I Have applied via ICA for a golden visa for software engineers.
From what I can gather my application was returned and they want me to show Health insurance for while I am living In Dubai.
The thing is I'm not presently in Dubai and I live in the UK.
I have private cover with my current company, and I have health insurance annual multi trip insurance already. But it is only for up to 1 month per trip.
The Dubai ICA says I need insurance for an initial 6 months to get the Visa.
Could you please tell me where I can get a very inexpensive policy that will satisfy the visa stamping rules?
Once I have the visa and it is all official, then I will look for a job in the UAE from London and move there with proper insurance ect once I have a job.
However I don't want to look for a Dubai coding job until I have. VISA as I'm already working in the UK as a senior engineer.

2021.12.07 18:59 le_redditusername Advice on current plan and estimating calories burned from resistance training (27, M 5'7)

Hi all!
I have found a workout routine I really enjoy. I will do an intense 10 minutes of cardio on the elliptical (usually cycling between the middle and maximum incline and resistance, with an estimated 150-160 calories burned). Then, I will lift weights for ~ 1 hr. I try to strive for 6 sets of 10 at 80% of my max with 2 minute breaks in between sets about every other day. On other days, I shoot for less weight and more sets. Targeting ~1,750 calories/day (after exercise); logging everything in MyFitnessPal. I take one day off a week.
Like I said, I really enjoy this particular routine, and I find that it helps keep me on track and stops me from getting burned out on too much cardio (prev. I was doing 30-40 minutes on the elliptical at lower settings, but found myself running out of steam by day 3-4).
My question is this: I have been hungry in the afternoon for the past few days and I realized it could because I am not logging any calories burned from the resistance training. How can I estimate calories burned from that?
Relatedly, I would really appreciate any general input on my current plan. Scale is not consistently moving in the direction I would like it to, or at the speed I'd like, but I am partly attributing this to muscle gain and trying not to lose the faith.
Really thankful for this community!
