would rather see more potm/ravenloft styled subraces and the likes then the current list.

Tagdar Stonebeard- the lone statue
Mihas Mandruleanu- He is the law
Gurdan- priest of the allfather, and current head of the silverhand trading company

There are no plans to add or remove from the subrace list at this time.

Werepanther please so i can be the first !
Monster templates are a completely different thing than subraces.

Since you revived this thread, I noticed some of the listed stats on the previous page aren't correct. For example, Kagonesti is listed as +2 Dex, -2 Int and -2 Cha... but in actuality the stat modifiers are +2 Str +2 Con -2 Int -2 Char (which means you lose the +2 to Dex vanilla elves get). The best thing to do if you want to be sure, is to google the 3.5 racial modifiers for whichever subrace you're intending to play.

A noob's question, could be said - but is it possible to play as githzerai?

No, githzerai are not allowed as a playable race.

Here is a link to a thread with the playable subraces (note: the thread indicates which subraces require applications to play):

Reviving the thread again, as the lack of information the OP originally mentioned still stands to this day. Is there, really, no other way to know the available subraces and how they have been implemented, than trial an error?

Look up the subrace in the appropriate sourcebook.

This appears to be a user-created, aggregated list, rather than anything that has copyright attached to it. I don't know how accurate it is, but corrections appear to have been made over time:

http://chet.kindredcircle.org/pdf/DnD3.5Index-Races.pdf

And Brimstone linked the list of races that are playable on POTM:

So if I wanted to play an Aasimar, and I was approved for playing such, going by this list and links I can expect:

As attribute adjustment:
+2 wisdom
+2 charisma
Creature Skin:
Darkvision
5/- cold / electric / acid resistance
+2 Listen +2 Spot (applied as Alertness feat or skill bonus)

And it would have an ECL adjustment of 1 so it would be harder to level up by a relative one level and stop leveling at 19? Is this correct so far?

Then the next query would be if it remains Human or takes on the Outsider race, and if so, do I need to worry about the extra feat & small amount of skillpoints acquired due to being a human at character generation? For spellcasting purposes, is the +2 wisdom & +2 charisma added to the creature skin or does it adjust the base attributes?

On NWN Aasimars retain the human's bonus feat and extra skill points, as such the ECL is +2. It is important to know that beforehand.

The attribute bonuses are not on the base stats and counts within the maximum +12 stat buff a character can have.

Actually that hasnít been the case for years. We modify the bade stats with NwNx so these bonuses donít count toward the cap.
