    Default charismatic races (3.5)

    At the request of a pal of mine, I'm looking for races that provide a charisma bonus. I'm sure he's just trying to min/max his bard idea (bless him), so I thought I'd ask around. Level adjustment isn't a problem, since I just want to provide all the options.

    I've looked at my collection of books, but I can't, at the moment, find the list of races I've found thus far. All I can remember off the top of my head is the chaos gnome and spellscale.
    Why is it the best campaign ideas happen when you're sitting down to someone elses game?

    Pun-Pun is an example of the worst case scenario. Never, ever, push your DM that far.

    Half-Fey is +2 LA for a suite of HD-based SLAs, immunity to enchantment, a fly speed, at-will charm person, and a healthy boost to Charisma.

    Fax beat me to Half-fey, which is pretty ideal for what you might be looking for.

    LA not an issure? Succubus. +16 Charisma if you can stomache the +6 LA and 6 RHD. I doubt that's useful for a build though.

    Air Mephling.

    +2 Cha, +2 Dex, a fly speed (10 ft, but easily doubled with the feat air heritage) and Bard as favored class. The drawback is -2 on Int, but that shouldn't be that big of an Issue. LA+1 and no Racial HD, you won't get flyspeed much cheaper.
    Thanks for Zefir for the custom avatar.

    If you don't mind the BoEF, there's a faeling template in there that's pretty good for LA+0. Also try felinoid from the same book.

    Catfolk (Races of the Wild) are +4 Dex, +2 Cha, 40' landspeed, some racial stealth and sense stuff, for LA+1. Very solid choice for Dex-y archer bards.

    The Jaebrin is a +1 LA Fey creature from MM5. It gets +2 Cha and -2 Str, immunity to enchantment spells/effects, and an assortment of nifty bonuses.

    I like the Hellbred race from Fiendish Codex II. There are two sub-races, and one gets a charisma bonus.
