    In my very first D&D 3E campaign I ran a minotaur druid. Currently a fellow player is running a minotaur in a post-apocalyptic d20 Modern game. Yesterday he had his minotaur catch a yuan-ti monk on his horns and flip him off a balcony. Minotaurs rock!
    It's all fun and games until someone loses a die.

    The only races those in my group have played are dark elves (not drow), a satyr, a woodling human, and a goliath (from races of stone). (The dark elves in the Scarred Lands setting are not Drow, they are called Drendali, but they are similiar on the surface to Drow).

    All of the above, save Lycanthrope. And that's just since Third Edition was released.

    And that was just me.

    Rest of my group tends to play Human exclusively, except for one guy who's got a thing for templates.

    As for "unusual PC races"... I consider most of the above on this poll to be standard. Only Ogres and Lycanthropes are that unusual. If you have that many sentient humanoids on one planet, you can't expect them to all be villains.

    I come at this from a slightly different angle...

    I've been playing a Drow Ranger/Druid/Magic-User since 1Ed.

    However, the only unusual race played since the creation of my drow back then was my Minotaur Ftr/Mage based on Native American culture... I would have tried other races but have not been allowed to: No one else in my group plays or allows unusual races.

    I'd even go so far as to say if I designed a campaign without ANY of the PHB races, none of them would be interested in playing in it.


    I need a new game group.

    Just off your list: Orc, Goblin, Kobold, Lycanthrope (werebear, wererat, and werewolf specifically), Minotaur, Aasimar, Tiefling, and Ogre. We have had MANY more unusual races make a PC appearance over the years, however, like Nathri, Wookiee, Warforged, Rakasta, Lupin, Genasi (all types but water), and so on. Sometimes we just want to play something a little off-the-wall.

    This reminds me of one of my favorite utterly non-human characters.

    Chaotic Good, dual-scimitar-wielding Ranger, outcast from Drow society.

    ... of course, he was a Drider.

    The most unusual character we ever had in our game was a feral goliath necropolitan (I kid you not).

    We also ended up booting the player of that character for being a rules rapist and outright cheater.

    Come to think of it, the player was even more unusual than the character: he was simply the worst roleplayer I have ever seen.

    Still, I digress ....

    Our group has played aasimar, Deep Imaskari, drow, elan, half-dragons, orogs, and tieflings.

    Some of us are also contemplating playing grimlocks and mind flayers in my friend's upcoming campaign.
