    I have players that were orc, kobold, Half Celestial, Aasimar, Tiefling, lizardman, nixie, pixie, troll, giant, thi kreen, a spellcasting frog and others.

    Including a human mage that was reincarnated as a badger and continued with that character.

    When you talk about polymorphs and strange magic effects we had a winged feebleminded dog, and a miniature bald purple caribou.

    LOL! That beats our rogue who got polymorphed into a llama.

    In a Spelljammer campaign I played a lizardman acrobat. Was a lot of fun actually.

    In my last DnD game I used a homebrew world where along with the core races Hobgoblins were a significant force and had a nation of their own. One player chose a hobgob as a PC. It all worked out surprisingly well.

    I had a friend with a fixation on Pixies.

    Several actually

    We've had a bugbear, half-dragon, and a drow. But the campaign is still young, so ther's plenty of time for more.

    I really wanted to take advantage of the monsters as PC's in 3E, to the point that I actually gave XP bonuses to people who started with a new character rather than raising their old one. So we've had Drow, Tielflings, Half-Celestials, Yuan-ti, Bugbears and Half-Dragons.

    My general impression is that it's pretty balanced over all.

    I only played one non-standard race. A Neutral lizardman cleric. the campaign only lasted two sessions though - not becasue fo the monster PCs but just general disinterest in the game (2nd edition AD&D).

    Other than that I don't allow non-stadard PC races although I am going to include some of the alternate human races in the Scarred Lands DM Screen Companion. Great little supplement and screen though the art on the side the players have to look at is simply awful.

    Psionic lizard men? Anyone? Anyone?
    "I asked Dave to please send me his rules additions, for I thought a whole new system should be developed. A few weeks after his visit I received 18 or so handwritten pages of rules and notes pertaining to his campaign, and I immediately began work on a brand new manuscript. "Greyhawk" campaign started Śthe first D&D campaign! About three weeks later, I had some 100 typewritten pages, and we began serious play-testing in Lake Geneva, while copies were sent to the Twin Cities and to several other groups for comment. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS had been born."
