For Everyone that needs brand new Threats and Enemies as well as new possibilities I have been brewing up some major possibilities among them are the following:
Everyone knows about the Drow but for those who need something brand new consider this A race of Eladrin that are like the drow but with major twists; first is the fact that these Eladrin are of the Swamps, Marshes, Jungles, Bogs, and Kelp Forests. Their hair range from dead white to silver while their skins range from Grey-Green to Grey-Blue. Their warriors are highly adept magic-users as they grow in martial skills they also grow in magical power. And their Wizards, Sorcerers, and Warlocks are adept in all the martial disiplines starting with unarmed combat and stick fighting and leading up to Swords, Spears, Archery and more. The origins of these Eladrin are unknown but they would revere Spiders, Scorpions, Poisonous Snakes, Sharks and Evil Dragons and at one time ruled over a vast Empire with Dragons as the co-rulers however the Dragons chaffed under this union and soon rebeled shattering this huge empire. those of them that are like Drizzt Do'Urdin will avoid utilizing their Magic for two reasons (1) Their Magic is by nature Vile (2) Using their Magic will attract their brethren the same way Sharks are drawn to the smell of blood in the water.
Everyone is familiar with the Phoenix; a being made of fire and light and represents good it has the appearence of an eagle. consider a Phoenix that is composed of Darkness and Cold. A being that is of Darkness, Cold, Entropy and Absolute Evil. These beings would have the appearence of Demonic Vultures. You do the math
Consider A God of Mummies. This Mummy God would be a Keeper of Secrets and a being that must continue to sleep and dream. As Long as this god continues to dream the cosmos is in balance and continues on the natural course. If this God were to wake up then the reprecusions would be dire and there would be two things that would anger this Mummy God (1) those that would wake him up (2) those that would steal and Artifact from this Mummy God's Tomb
I like the mummy god as the holding the domain of secrets. You could go all out and say that all the secrets in the world are said to be written on his wrappings, and have it as a base for an adventure (find ____'s Achille heel, locate the hidden tomb of ____, etc).
Twist of that campaign is that the secrets can't be found or never existed. No one would know if they found the true secret, perhaps just some cursed loot and gold.
I`ve got an idea like that making a PC`s background. He was a dragonborn barbarian|sorcerer, so came the idea of the dragonborns of that setting being all barbarians worshipping dragons, not really lawful good. Then, they used a lot of sorcery along with the melee prowess to become the tribe`s champions and more like a dragon. He was always dragonbreathing (with sorcerer powers) and shaking his big implement-sword in fury.
