Quick Alchemy [one-action] The duergar bombardier creates a single alchemical item from their formula book (see Alchemical Formulas). This item has the infused trait, but it remains potent only until the start of the duergar bombardier’s next turn.

Quick Bomber [one-action] The duergar can use Interact to draw a bomb, then Strike with it.


Alchemy intrigues many duergars, and their cruel traditions often motivate them to experiment on slaves. Eager to inflict pain and justify the abuse as a method of expanding knowledge, duergar bombardiers often accompany slaver bands so they can have the first chance to select their next test subjects from captured victims. To duergar bombardiers, the lob of each bomb represents a new opportunity to observe how their targets react and record the results to enhance future modifications to their alchemical concoctions.
