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).
