Thank you for the comment. Just because it is a long quiz, I wanted some better visual effect. Green was kinda weird, so I changed it to a pale blue.

Oh yeah. Drow. I tried Dark Elves but couldn't remember their other name. That was the most obvious one I missed. I got Rakshasa and Yuan-ti, I think both of those were in my Monstrous Compendium that I used to read over and over.

Nice quiz!

I think you should add the playable races in the last manuals (such as Goliath, Triton, Tabaxi and such).

I think eladrin and high elves are not the same thing. Eladrin come from the Feywild and change seasons with their mood, while high elves are just prettier elves, though maybe they have been changes to be the same thing.
