Duelist: A system-neutral combat add-on


PaizoCon Online is May 26th - 29th, so this title has been marked down by 25%! For more values, visit our PaizoCon Online sale page.

Duelist is a combat add-on for tabletop roleplaying games, intended to add depth and variety to a wide range of most popular TTPRG games without replacing their mechanics. Instead, Duelist aims to work with the already existing game systems, to further bring out the fun of combat.


Using Duelist in your games is going to help your fighter characters of all classes and variations express themselves through a combat style, and be more effective against foes at the same time. Duelist isn’t a direct power upgrade for your fighters, however, as the increased effectiveness comes at the cost of potential drawbacks.

To accomplish those goals through the use of a simple system of semi-random selection and multiple convergent stances and attack types. The players can choose theirs at will, while the non-player character opponents choose theirs either through Game Master/Dungeon Master fiat or through a simple semi-random selection method—the decision roll.


What's inside?

  • Tips for mixing Duelist with any RPG combat system
  • Rules for engaging in duels
  • Decision roll: a semi-random algorithm to simulate the opposition's intelligence and tactics
  • New initiative rules
  • Three stances affecting your defense and offense potential
  • Three types of attacks varying the speed and damage
  • Six combat moves introducing offensive and defensive maneuvers
  • Six bonus moves, from taunts to refreshments and dirty tricks!

What's next?

Duelist is the first in the series of system-neutral add-ons by Double Proficiency. Stay tuned for more in the coming months!

File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
