  • Edible. Eating a bunfolk provides nourishment equivalent to one pound of food.
  • Antimagic Susceptibility. The bunfolk is incapacitated while in the area of an antimagic field. If targeted by dispel magic, the bunfolk must succeed on a Constitution saving throw against the caster’s spell save DC or fall unconscious for 1 minute.
  • Constructed Nature. A bunfolk doesn’t require air, food, drink, or sleep.
  • Swarm. The swarm can occupy another creature’s space and vice versa, and the swarm can move through any opening large enough for a Tiny bunfolk. The swarm can’t regain hit points or gain temporary hit points.


  • Hard-tack. Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, range 10/30 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d4 + 2) bludgeoning damage, or 2 (1d4) bludgeoning damage if the swarm has half of its hit points or fewer.


Men, women, and children are all made of buns and bread. A few of the buns, which seem to form the more important class of the people, are neatly frosted. Some have raisins for eyes and currant buttons on their clothes; others have eyes of cloves and legs of stick cinnamon, and many wear hats and bonnets frosted pink and green.

Bunfolk live in Bunbury, a little town with houses made of crackers, laid out in tiny squares. The houses have balconies and porches with posts of bread-sticks and roofs shingled with wafer-crackers. There are walks of breadcrusts leading from house to house and forming streets. The ground is all flour and meal, and there is a butter mine at the opposite side of the village. The trees are all doughleanders and doughderas, and in the season they get quite a crop of dough-nuts off them.

Delicious Treats. Bunfolk are quite sensitive to the fact that they are edible, and view all living beings with mouths as hostile. While they’re willing to sacrifice furniture and fences to a visitor’s hunger, things inevitably go awry, which leads to the bunfolk defending themselves as best they can.

Oven-Baked Rage. Dangerous if thoroughly provoked, Bunfolk will resort to throwing their foes into the same ovens that creates bunfolk. For statistics on those ovens see the utensians entry.
