    It can work fine otherwise, but the same goes for races with too high LA. Once your LA goes past 2 or 3 (3 is pushing it very far) your character becomes full of suck and fail.

    Other times, depending on the material allowed, in the rare case a monster PC can be drastically overpowered. Take for example the Half-Minotaur Feral creature.
    Not necessarily. If the GM is running a 3.5 version of "Reverse Dungeon" (and yes, i've done this) it works just fine... mainly because LA essentially goes out the window & there is less focus on class/levels. Its only a problem with a mixed group (An even then there a work arounds).

    I think the most interesting monstrous race I've played so far is my Thrikreen Monk, who later went Pugilist and finally Drunken Master. Imagine a humanoid Praying Mantis with some Psionic abilities and 4 arms, is a monk, a boxer, and is boozed out all the time and gains health back every time he tanks out. A really fun character to play out, especially with Vow of Poverty. I crack up my group every time I bring him out.

    We play Eberron Campaign with 3.5 most of the time...good times.

    As the usual DM in our long-forgotten PnP group, I played almost strictly monsters.
    My goal was usually to beat the players as badly as possible within two guidelines.

    1. What sort of attacks/special things is this monster capable of?
    2. What kind of intelligence does this monster have?
