Hi all, looking for suggestions on a Monstrous Humanoid race suitable for a spellcaster, with as few racial HD and small LA possible.

Cheers - T

What sort of spellcaster? INT, WIS, or CHA based?

d20srd.org returns these (http://www.penpaperpixel.org/tools/d20monsterfilter/index.php) for monstrous humanoid.

Off the top of my head, the only Monstrous Humanoid with low RHD/LA is the Goliath from Races of the Wild. It's LA +1 and no RHD, but it's not really that great for a spellcaster (+4 Str, -2 Dex, +2 Con; Powerful Build; some movement- and altitude-related abilities; and a bonus to Sense Motive). Not a perfect fit, but it could work.

Dromite, as long as it's not a divine caster. +1 LA only. +2 cha, -2 str, -2 wis.

Great, Goliath or Dromite should be fine. Thanks.
