Buckawns are a species of xenophobic brownies indigenous to the woodlands of the Prime Material Plane.
Monster Manual descriptions
The buckawn are a race of woodland demihumans of the brownie type. They are less friendly and far more tricky than their cousins, however. Buckawn shun human contact and do not regularly associate with brownies either. Buckawn typically arm themselves with small daggers and quivers of darts. The darts have been known to be drugged or poisoned when the creatures attacked had annoyed or offended the buckawn.
Buckan can, at the 6th level, use the following spell-like powers, 1 at a time, 1 per round, at will: audible glamer, change self, dancing lights, invisible. They can also use the following spell-like powers, once each per day, at 6th level: entangle, pass without trace, summon insects, trip.
Buckawn have very superior senses and are never surprised. Their vision allows them to see not only into the infra and ultraviolet spectrums, but also to detect invisible creatures with no difficulty. Likewise, their hearing is very keen, and the possibility of someone moving silently near them is reduced by 50%. In 1 turn they can hide in foliage or shadows or move silently with 80% probability.
Buckawn appear much the same as slender brownies with dusky skin. They dress in russets and greens.
