I am a fan of Judas Priest and loved all their albums so far. It took me some time to find out the band has two albums that don't feature original singer Rob Halford. The reason for not finding out soon is because these albums are the only Judas Priest's studio albums not listed on Spotify. These albums (released in 1997 and 2001 respectively) were recorded with Tim Owens, who joined the band in 1996, after Halford's departure in 1992. In 2003, Judas Priest announced they would reunite with Rob Halford, thus leading to Tim's departure.

The final scene crawls across the skyline of London to a building fronting the Thames. I recognized the Millennium Bridge and the London Eye, so I'm sure the scene was realistic. The remaining assassins are grouped on a building with a clock. What is that building? Secondarily: the clock reads 4:44, and it's dark. That means it's December/January and thus the Templar crowd spilling out of their HQ are dressed wrong. Or possibly the clock is broken. But anyway, is there something significant about 4:44 in the Assassin's Creed mythology? Or is it a tribute to some other film?

In True Blood S01E10, the Magistrate chooses the punishment for Bill Compton. As Bill begins (47:50), he is told I'd hate to interrupt, but glamour is not permitted. At the time, I thought it was just to make it more cruel as part of his punishment. Now I can think of two other events that seem to follow this rule. Eddie probably was not glamoured since he wanted to be like the one who was not attractive, and yet still very popular. (s01e09) Bill was not glamoured during his time as depicted in his civil war period encounter. (s01e05) I can't remember this rule from old novels (Lestat), either.

The TV serial Sherlock presents Sherlock and Mycroft as rather snarky atheists. From The Sign of Three: SHERLOCK: ... and contrast is, after all, God’s own plan to enhance the beauty of his creation ... or it would be if God were not a ludicrous fantasy designed to provide a career opportunity for the family idiot. From The Final Problem: MYCROFT: Heaven may be a fantasy for the credulous and the afraid. But I can give you a map reference for hell. Given that atheism is not a prominent characteristic of Holmes in other media, why this development in Sherlock?

Each episode of Star Trek includes the captain's log. Each episode of Bones ends with a sweet moment between Booth and Brennan. Most episodes of Criminal Minds are bookended with quotes that are relevant to that episode. Some TV series are written by a writing team, and others accept script submissions. As far as I know, all shows have a "bible." Is there a specific term for those elements that must be in a TV episode? If there is, what is it?

Myself and a few other players in our campaign are trying to set up some wagons for a long haul for a campaign quest that will take us away from civilization for over a year. We are looking at the math for holding rations and materials for preserving food, and are wondering how many rations could we fit into one barrel. The PHB says on page 153 that 1 barrel can hold “40 gallons liquid, 4 cubic feet solid”. One player says that there can only be 10 rations per barrel because they weigh 2 lbs., but another says that the 2 lbs. was a typo and they are 1 lbs. for a day's rations. This has became an issue that has caused a fight and players getting angry at each other.

We were trying to understand how the "Action Surge" rule works, and after some discussion we came to a standstill. Starting at 2nd level, you can push yourself beyond your normal limits for a moment. On your turn, you can take one additional action on top of your regular action and a possible bonus action The keyword "possible" is what threw us off. Half the group thought it meant "additional action or bonus action", and the other half thought it was "additional action and bonus action". So which is it?

In the multiple campaigns I have been privy to (across DnD 5th, 3.5, and Pathfinder) there have been three different scenarios I've seen. The upper extreme: the DM/GM rolls everything, the lower extreme: the DM/GM only rolls for NPCs, and the middle: the DM/GM rolls some. I'm mostly thinking with rolls like Sense Motive/Insight, Perception, Stealth, and other checks. What are the advantages of each of these methods and what checks should the DM/GM roll in the case of the middle?
