  • Fey Ancestry. The two-bladed drow duelist has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put the drow to sleep.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The two-bladed drow duelist’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 13). It can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:
    • At will: dancing lights
    • 1/day each: darkness, feather fall
  • Sunlight Sensitivity. While in sunlight, the two-bladed drow duelist has disadvantage on attack rolls, as well as on Wisdom (Perception, Survival) checks that rely on sight.
  • Whirling Blades. When the two-bladed drow duelist hits with two weapon attacks in the same turn, the damage of all its following weapon attacks is doubled until the start of its next turn.


  • Multiattack. The two-bladed drow duelist makes three shortsword attacks.
  • Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Light Crossbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 80/320 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage, and the target must make DC 13 Constitution saving throw or become poisoned for 1 hour. If the saving throw fails by 5 or more, the target falls unconscious for the same duration, or until it takes damage or another creature uses an action to shake it awake.


  • Cunning Action. The two-bladed drow duelist can use a bonus action to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
  • Main Gauche. If the two-bladed drow duelist has unsheathed a second shortsword, it can make an additional shortsword attack.


Drow mercenaries are known for their proficiency underground as well as on the surface, especially at night.
