To make the world unique and not just another generic fantasy setting, I want to include some "asian visuals" to make things a bit different. Like the Night Elves in Warcraft combine Japanese and Scandinavian architecture.
Here's some stuff I already have:
Rakshasa (though still the D&D type)
Hengeyoukai (natural lycanthropes from the spiritworld)
Naginata (as glaives)
More ideas are welcome.
