Dwarves from the Deep: Duergar

Introduction
You're bound to encounter Duergar on your adventure, but with their history of being victims of the Mind Flayers, surely it would make sense to play as one, as well. This mod sets out to allow players to play as Duergar, aiming o be as faithful as possible to their implementation in the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide.


To Be a Duergar
As a Duergar, you receive the base racial bonuses of Dwarves. You also have an additional +1 to Strength, Advantage on saving throw against Illusions and against being Charmed or Paralyzed, and the Duergar Magic bonus feature. An optional version with Sunlight Sensitivity is also present.

Duergar Magic
At level 3, you gain the ability to cast Enlarge as an action, once per long rest. At level 5, you gain the ability to cast Invisibility once per long rest, also as an action. You cannot cast these while in direct sunlight.

Addons
This mod comes with two optional add-ons: Sunlight Sensitivity and Reduce.

Sunlight Sensitivity
For lore reasons, a Player character should not receive Sunlight Sensitivity, which gives disadvantage on attack rolls and Perception checks while in direct sunlight. However, some may enjoy the added challenge, or want to play as if they were a regular Duergar. If that's what you're looking for, this add-on is for you!

Reduce
Normally, Player Duergar wouldn't gain access to the Reduce spell as part of their Duergar Magic racial feature, instead gaining only Enlarge. This add-on allows you to use Reduce once per long rest, targeting any character.


Installation
This mod works with Candor mod manager, Vortex Mod Manager, BG3 Mod Manager, and Manual Installations. Candor and BG3 mod managers are by far the simplest methods, and as such are the recommended ones.
