If you have the possibility to use ONE monster from any 5e official book as a character race, which one would it be?

    Hmm, tough to decide.

    If it wasn’t limited to 5E, I’d be sorely tempted to say Ibixians / Goatfolk or Bariaurs – the latter would be great to bring back with some new Planescape content.

    For currently statted 5E monsters, I’m tempted to pick another Planescape favorite, Modrons, although they’re admittedly a bit niche.

    I also find myself drawn to Revenants, although they -technically- are playable if your DM allows old Unearthed Arcana materials.

    Thri-Kreen are also tempting, in much the same vein as Bariaurs, just with a return to the Dark Sun setting rather than Planescape.

    But ultimately, I think have to go with the Giff – they’re just way too much fun.
