Well, I do not know if the fellow campaign designer (elegant, isn't it? ;) ) had the Dragonlance monsters in mind, but here they are in 3e (for those of you who want a 2e version, check on the net):

Draconians are the evil monsters who sprang after a despicable ritual took effect on the eggs of good dragons, stolen from the nest of their layer mother and her mate. Here is the description of the most common ones, the Baaz, which come out of the eggs of Brass dragons:

Death Throe (Su): In the round that a Baaz reaches 0 or fewer hit points, its body turns to stone. The creature that struck the deathblow must roll a succesful Dexterity check (DC 13) or have his weapon fused to the draconian. The Baaz "statue" crumbles to dust after 1d4 minutes. Items carried by unaffected by the petrification and subsequent dissolution. Any stuck weapon can be retrieved after the Baaz crumbles away.

Glide (Ex): A Baaz can use its wings to glide, negating any damage from a fall of any height and allowing it to travel horizontally up to four times the vertical distance descended.

Disease Immunity (Ex): Baaz draconians are immune to all natural diseases.

Low Metabolism (Ex): Baaz draconians can survive on one-tenth the food and water it takes to sustain a human.


If you want more information on draconians of Dragonlance (the campaign they appear), read the reference in "The Best of Tales: Volume Two" (Baaz Draconians) or "Draconian Measures" (I think all of them) novel books.
