Anyone compiled a list of ECL 1 races?

A friend of mine is trying to find an ECL 1 race to use in an upcoming game. Since he doesn't come here, I thought I'd do some legwork for him.

Any help is appreciated! :)

I'm sure people are just letting you do the legwork like you wanted. :)

Seriously though, I'd also be interested. I have Savage Species, so I'm aware of the 3 or 4 non-elf races listed there (Kobold, Orc, Goblin,...), but I haven't gone through any of my monster supplements to see what else there is of a reasonable ECL.

i suggest checking out Thomas Heretic's similar post on NKL - i've already posted some suggestions there. :)

Bastards & Bloodlines from Green Ronin details the following +1 ECLs...

Decataur, biped (Elf/Centaur)
Half-Gnoll (Gnoll/Human)
Morlock (Gnome/Troglodyte)

but the ECL +2s are even better...
Blinkling (Halfling/Blink Dog)
Green folk (Human/Lizardfolk)
Kestrel (Harpy/Halfling)
Piper (Elf or Halfling/Satyr)
Spring child (any humanoid/Dryad)
Watcher (Dwarf/Gargoyle)
Wendigo (Dwarf/Winter Wolf)

Seems like I'm always the last to know....I'm working on some half-whatever races for my homebrew and darn it once again....its already been done. I have some of these on my list too, but haven't seen this product you speak of....is it me or does it seem sometimes that in this genre that we are all just rehashing things that have already been done...is there any original stuff left for us to branch off into....

I'll go now and put away my genetic diagrams, you know, from high school ....

: A : a
B:AB: Ba ..........or something like that
b:Ab: ba

Guess its already been done to death.....


Oh BTW here's some of mine that are not on the list....

Gnomling = halfling/gnome
Dwarlock = Dwarf/Grimlock
Kuo-Droa = Kuo Toa/Drow
Gnoblin = Gnome/Goblin
Troglomen = Troglodite/Human
Gnollbear = Gnoll/Bugbear
Hubugbearian = Human/Bugbear

etc., etc., etc., ad nausem..

CPT G hits forehead in frustration at beeing lazy and not geting his stuff out first.

Oh well that's like the 1st ED character I had in 1979...what was his name....Rambo, he,he,he....I should have copywrited it I'd have been rich when the movies came out. Instead I soldier on for peanuts.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who sees something wrong with these!?

Actually, these are weird also.

Surprisingly there are not as many as you think. These are all from WoTC products.

Aasimar
Tiefling
Genasi (all)
Bariur
Hobgoblin
Fey-Touched
Half-Ogre
Grey Orc

Thats about all I can come up with. There may be a few more but it seems to me that there a lot more ecl 2 critters than ecl 1.

Weasel

These're out of the Dragon Article about a year ago.

Wouldn't it reather be the meazel (from Monsters of Faerûn) ? Playing a weasel seems quite limited (well, an awakened weasel, maybe; but since awaken gives 2 HD, it's not going to be ECL 1).

Well, not all cross-breeds come from sxual relations, many, if not most, are the product of magic and magical experimentation.

Hair of halfling + hair of blinkdog + a pound of blood + a pinch of salt + magic cauldronm thingy, you get the idea.

Of course one never knows. They could have done it the old fashioned way. Though conception does seem unlikely.
