[RPG] playable undead race


Is there a playable race of undead in Dungeons and Dragons 3.5? I would prefer a race that isn't a vampire or lich. If possible, please share their stats.

Best Answer

Yes. The best "playable" undead race is the necropolitan, found in (I believe) Libris Mortis. This template is the best choice for a PC because it has no level adjustment, merely causing the character in question to lose a level. Therefore, any build is possible with this basis, with especial attention being paid to the taint rules from Heroes of Horror.

Beyond that, look in Savage species for a way to make templates for any creature of your choice and many interesting exotic (and some undead) races. Libris Mortis also has some interesting undead rules.
