Standard Duelist Equipment
Starting at first level, you gain the standard duelist equipment listed below. These are magic items that are bound to every duelist. They are gifted to you by the god Atem and cannot be sold or traded. While they are indestructible, they can be lost, so make sure to keep good track of them. The combined weight of this equipment is 1lb.
Millennium Cards= A set of 200 magical cards produced by the god Atem and given to worthy duelists. These cards can house the souls of creatures, magic, and items. These are displayed on the cards and referred to as monsters, spells, and traps. All of these Cards are initially blank and useless. they can only be "imprinted"(putting the soul of something onto a card) through class features. If these cards are left outside a soul "container"(Deck Box, Millennium Tin) for 1 hour the soul inside the Card is released and the Card returns to its blank state to be used again.
Dueling Deck= Choose a set of 3 monsters and one spell from the Starting Millennium Cards list(at the bottom of the class page). These cards become your dueling deck. Each Card in the Dueling Deck is given a number ranging from one to the highest number on your Draw Die shown in the Class Table. Cards in the dueling deck, side deck, or spare Deck can only be changed out (with cards from the millennium tin) during a long rest. Cards that are not in the deck can not be used.
Deck Box= This small magic Box which is usually fastened to your leg or hip houses one of your dueling deck for easy access. It can house millennium cards up to the highest number of your draw die(shown in the Class Table) without their souls seeping out(acts as a "soul container"). A Deck Box may only contain up to 3 copies of a card.
Millennium Tin= This small metal box allows you to keep any Millennium cards that are not in a Deck without their souls seeping out(acts as a "soul container").
Starting at first level, at the start of each of your turns you may roll the Draw Die and pull one card from your dueling deck(stationed in the deck box) based on the result of that roll. If you roll the number of a card you have already drawn you must go with the next lowest number. If there are no more cards with lower numbers you must go with the next highest number(this does not count as an action). The draw die starts as a 1d4 and increases as you gain levels indicated on the class table. As long as you have at least one card in your hand, you cannot hold anything else in that hand.
Starting at first level. You have the ability to transmit the souls within your Millennium Cards into a physical form. Theses forms cannot be extended beyond 30ft from your position(this is referred to as the Field). Any form that goes beyond this range is sent to a pocket dimension(referred to as the graveyard).
-As an action you may summon a Monster from a Millennium Card in your hand. Hold out a Monster card and will the soul of that monster to appear within 5ft of you. A Monster cannot be summoned in the same space as another creature/Monster or in midair(unless that monster has flight/hover). You can only have a maximum of three this increases by one for every 2 levels you have. Monsters that you Summon can be a CR equal to your level. You can sacrifice a monster from the field to summon a monster above your level. It takes another extra monster for every extra cr above your level.
-As an action you may cast a Spell from a Millennium Card in your hand. Hold out a Spell card and will the soul of that spell to appear somewhere on your Field. Spell requirements such as a target or concentration still apply. No materials are necessary to cast a spell this way.
