Take Them Down! [one-action] The duergar taskmaster smashes their maul into the ground and invokes their god’s name to rally their allies to action. All allied duergars of equal or lower level that are within 20 feet of the duergar taskmaster gain a +1 status bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls until the end of the duergar taskmaster’s next turn.


Duergar priests of the taskmaster god often assume leadership roles within their communities, advancing the goals of their deity through coercion and displays of force. Often referred to as duergar taskmasters, these leaders often issue commands to duergar subordinates and slaves in the same breath, treating the two almost as if they were interchangeable. As a result, duergar taskmasters are loathed by both slave and slaver alike.
