What is Owlin Race in D&D? 

Owlin is magical creatures that resemble tall, thin humanoids with the head of an owl. Three times the length of a human, with great beaks and wings, they stand six feet tall. As owlins live in deep woods inhabited by elves and other magical beings, their appearance is strange and enigmatic to many races.

Playing as an Owlin: A Human Wizard/Sorcerer Summoner Character

Owlin has high Charisma scores (18 + Int modifier), which grants them an advantage on Charisma-based skills checks. They are proficient in all the arts (Athletics, Acrobatics, Sleight of Hand, Nature, and Perception).

Owlin is quite nimble and has a flying speed of 40 feet. They tend to land gently on their feet, after a long drop. They can only use weapons that are light, due to their thin build, so they gain Proficiency in Rapier and Short Sword (also any weapon with the Finesse feature).

Owlins have a wide vision and can see very well in dim light, so they don’t suffer a disadvantage with ranged weapon attacks at short range (65ft) or suffer a disadvantage on Perception checks when they can’t see other creatures clearly. Owlin also gains proficiency in Perception checks at short range (130ft) at night while they have Darkvision.
