Please help? I'm trying to collect (mostly humanoid) fantasy/mythical races & species and write them on a list. I'd really appreciate it if some of you could name me some other races I haven't thought of yet, since I want to collect as many as possible. It would be nice if you'd give me a short explanation of what they are.
:This is what I've got so far:
Elves, Fairies, Vampires (blood curse), Werewolves (blood curse), Centaurs, Fauni, Shapeshifters (into animals), Demons (unsure), Nagas, Mermaids, Sirens, Harpies, Dwarves, Halflings, Nymphs (Dryads, Naiads, Oreads), Dragons, Giants, Beastmen (mutated shapeshifters, humanoids with animal traits).

Im trying to collect them so I have a better overview of what I might put in my own world :) I’m especially looking for civilized or at least reasonable species.
In the future I’d like to use the list to organize my thoughts about each being and be able to categorize them and come up with their origin etc.

D&D Monster Manual subtypes make things a bit easier.

Not counting subtypes with passable human-esque members, I'd have to leaf through my hard copies for some of the more nuanced things, like other sentient/cursed humanoid undead (vampires,lich, mummies), fey (pixies/faeries/nymphs/dryads) demons(succubi/incubi in particular) angelic/celestial beings and so forth.

Zwerge und Riesen hab ich aufgelistet :3 und Hexen und Zauberer sind bei mir keine eigene Rasse.
Bei Trollen und Orks bin ich mir so unsicher?? Ich weiß so wenig über solche Rassen weil die mich nie so richtig interessiert haben, aber ich würde gerne mehr wissen um abwägen zu können ob ich mit denen was anfangen kann, bzw wo ich die einordnen kann xD u know what I mean?

I don't really know what Goyls are :( Can you describe them a little?
And I don't count witches & mages etc. as race on it's own, for me it's more like a profession c:

Hmm.. if you like funky little creatures, you might like a Drekavac x3 ( translated 'Shrieker' from Serbian ). mythological-y they're formed from infants that passed away without being baptized.
