Without a shadow of a doubt, Aasimar.

"Do you know who my father is?"

But then I tend to play gratuitously heroic types; paladins or swashbucklers. So Lawful Good that it hurts.

Letting anyone play a Kender is a bad idea.

A Kender can be a bad idea.

A Kender with caffeine is a serious problem (for someone else).

'Cause 'playing in character' absolves you of any responsibility not to ruin the game for everyone else.   ::)

Definitely not.

Kender can actually be tricky to play in that regard. Their nature does make them annoying ... the player just has to make sure that they keep the annoyance factor minimised towards the rest of the group.

For that matter, you could probably take and emphasis the negative traits of any race, and if you make those the primary aspect of the character, you will annoy the rest of your group, regardless of species.

But that's the player though, not the character.

I LOVE Erinyes and Succubi in 3.5!
The planescape monster manuel from 2nd had what I felt were the best pics for those two races.  I really like Erinyes, the idea of fallen angels is enjoyable.  I had a paladin as Asmodeua in a pathfinder game that consorted with Erinyes; unfortunately one powergaming player ruined the whole game & the GM stopped running it  :(

I really have to agree with that.  It's been along time since I've seen a kender in a game but I see what we term 'random' character, which play about the same & I do not enjoy seeing those in games.

Half-celestial. Although fey would be a close second, followed by plain human.

Generally I enjoy otherworldly characters, often with a spiritual bent.

I had an awesome time playing a high level demonfey in an Eberron game on RPOL.

Bard/Warlock.. nasty mix socially.

I played with a player that had a 7th level bard/sorcerer once.  Got KOed by a first lvl commoner trying to knock him out.  Funniest thing I've ever see.

Fey'ri (Deamonfey): These succubus-elf offspring are a very default race for me. Though since I only play casters I require various methods of overcomming LA.

Drow: I find spider themes very sexually alluring. My drow are very evil. Also Kiaransalee is a fun deity.

Dvati: Ahhhh my love of loves. While I never play one personally my defacto cohort (leadership feat) is one of these. One soul inhabiting two bodies. He is usually a fiend of possession class but he has made appearances as other classes. He s always a Dvati though and a colorful character.

I find female drow to be very sexy, their culture is interesting.

I've been wanting an excuse to role play an overtly sexual drow male priest of Lolth.

Except that Lolth does not have male priests. She hates men.

If I were to choose a race, it'd likely be Drow. I've always enjoyed playing the outcast that usually ends up suffering for her species.

I saw mention above of Modron. Heh.

Had a Planescape game I played in years and years ago. One player, a very droll guy, decided to play a Modron, and it just seemed to be the perfect race for his personality. It was almost like RPing with Ben Stein.

I'm going to go ahead and risk being seen as mundane, and say the human. Why you ask? It's a power gaming thing, I like the extra bonus feet and skills! Lol

I tend to play a lot of humans and elves, elans are pretty cool too when psionics are included. My very first character was an elf ranger.

I had a level 4 Specialist Priest of Llira (Forgotten Realms goddess of Dance), who got attacked by a level 1 commoner, stabbed twice and almost killed. She only survived by beating the hell out of him with her fists.

Which, even as she did not kill him, landed her in jail (stupid lawful neutral city! >.<).  Last time I ever played in the RPGA.
