    Yeah I've been trying to do some work on fleshing out the evil humanoids. How good it is, well... subjectivity

    I wonder how Hamadryads figure in the D&D lore? I don't think they ever got an official 3E reprint. They didn't even make it into the 3rd party Tome of Horrors. I'm lead to believe they exist in 4E, and maybe 5E?

    That sounds promising.

    Mongoose Publishing's Slayer's Guide to... series are well worth a look for several of the MM savage races. I have read Orcs, goblins and hobgoblins, but the series is pretty prolific... there is even a Slayer's Guide to Krakens.

    The Slayers Guide to Orcs is quite good quality in particular. Better again is Fury in the Wastelands from Kingdoms of Kalamar (orc supplement), which I'd consider better quality than the WotC Races of books. My campaigns tend to be orc heavy as my table tends to just like them as a nonhuman race a lot more than elves and dwarves.

    Fey are woefully under represented though, even in 3rd party stuff. I remember there was some quite interesting homebrew on the old Planewalker site metaphysically linking them to Eladrins, though that may have been drawing from 4th edition fluff. Fey are big players in my current campaign, but I basically had to write it wholecloth using Killoren as the template race.

    Check out my latest homebrew thread for some oddball fey. I still have to do the big bad supertemplate, but that's probably a little ways off.

    Also worth mentioning that Manual of the Planes has optional rules for a transitive Plane of Faerie at the back, which is probably useful to consider.

    Later editions of the game expanded heavily on this concept, and I find a lot of people are more willing to adopt this Feywild fluff than a lot of other changes to the game lore, as it fleshes out something covered poorly in 3.5.
