Comfortable with the four elements, a duelle can live in each of them. A duelle is generally a fairie or other tiny creature that engages in no combat directly, but buffs and supports its other companions. Duelles have many non-combat abilities as well, both in magical and mundane activities. Duelles are fragile and have very low hit points, so they do pretty much anything they can to avoid getting hit or taking damage including a vast panoply of spells to avoid taking damage. Their favorite cantrip is ignore me.


You must be a member of a tiny race to be a duelle.

  • To qualify for multiclassing into the duelle class you must be a member of a tiny race or somehow a tiny member of a small race.

Place Dwelling[edit]

Place dwelling duelles find a home in the human world and move in. They generally create a little magic door at the base of a wall, or foundation or castle or city wall, and hollow out a little space behind it and build a home there.

Magic Door

At third level you can create a magic door to your fairy habitation in the base of wall of a human construction or a tree.

  • When you create the door, you designate six alignments that can not see or feel the door. Creatures with those alignments can not see or feel the door. Creatures of the other three alignments can.
  • When you create the door, you also create a hollow area behind it that is 12 cubic ft in volume. It may be any shape, but it may have only one entrance and exit - the magic door.
  • The magic door prevents area effects from entering the little space behind it, even if the door is open.
Denizen Spells
  • At fourth level, you may cast the following first level spells one additional time per day beginning at the end of a long rest, in this case without using slots.

Alarm, Illusory Script

  • At seventh level, you may cast the following second level spells one additional time per day beginning at the end of a long rest, in this case without using slots.

Arcane Lock, Continual Flame

Extradimensional Apartment

At 11th level you may make the area behind the magic door 11 times larger than the hollow space behind it by having the space behind it extend extradimensionally.
