I still like vampires despite after all the Twilight clones and all it’s jokes. I still believe that they are versatile, especially since they are very very customizable. All you literally need is a deadish creature that takes away life-force for it’s own, you can give any weakness, any strength, any origin, whatever. They have a lot of potential and I think people don’t play up the undead aspect enough.
As low level fodder, the challenge is always good and organic. Not conflict and challenge grafted into the story just to make a story.
Also dragons! Overdone, but a classic for a reason, and still badass when done well.
Smeowglivion Wrote: Elves, because they are always the same and because they were barely used for anything else. Two of my favourite portrayals of Elves are in Skyrim and Dungeon Meshi. In the first, they became quasi-nazi, which suites them perfectly. In the second, elves are arrogant and don't take other races seriously, which once again, fits them like a glove and comes across as a realistic depiction of a long-lived race.
Oo I love TES elves, though while only the Thalmor are the quasi-nazis, several elves still fit the description of the Dungeon Meshi elves. I don’t know why I like them, I think it’s the arrogance, I wouldn’t like it in RL, but it’s appealing to me in fictional characters.
Big part of why my story is what it is. I decided to just do it myself.
But my favorite fantasy race? Orcs. Why? They’re hot.
I like hearing about the reason they exist in a fantasy world and the customization that different versions can display.
