I'm looking for a template with no more than a +1 LA that grants Damage Reduction. If possible it would be best if it applied to Humanoids but I can also make Monstrous Humanoid or Giant work. I am aware of Mineral Warrior, but it doesn't serve my needs.

Unseelie Fey, a +0 LA template grants DR based on your HD, but also extra damage against you from enemies using iron weaponry.

There are a bunch of templates that are "LA —" (i.e. Not For Players) that grant DR, amongst other things.

Here is a list of all the D&D 3.5e templates.

Half-Fey is +1 LA and gives DR 5/cold iron. It can be applied to any living corporeal creature.

The Half Shadow and Half Dragon have damage reduction too.

The file you linked to was removed from Crystal Keep at the request of WotC. I don't think we should be copying text from it here, so I've removed the details and left an overview of the relevant features. – SevenSidedDie Dec 14 '13 at 20:22
Thank you for your kindly edit. – huseyin tugrul buyukisik Dec 14 '13 at 20:29
Half-Fey is LA+2 but I found Unseelie Fey out of Dragon Magazine #304 which grants scaling DR based on hit dice. Thanks for the help guys. – Mr Tumnus Dec 24 '13 at 21:24
