Dropped tunings:
A drop tuning is a tuning in which the intervalls between the strings are 3.5 whole tones - 2.5 whole tones - 2.5 whole tones - 2 whole tones - 2.5 whole tones.
Keep in mind that half a tone = 1 fret.
There you have ALL the possible dropped tunings
And mostly they're just around drop C/C#/D because if you go too high or low you'd have to readjust string tention. And it doesn't really matter because playing is always the same anyway xD

EDIT: And most rock guitarists use standard tuning anyway xD. Dropped tunings are for slight differences, and to make powerchords easyer. Downside is you can't play full barré chords anymore. That's something a rock guitarist would want to avoid, but a metal guitarist wouldn't (mostly).

Charming.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

Drop D tuning means you drop down the low e string a whole step too D. Very common tuning, some people also tune down the higher e string too d.

What a tit.

Just experiment. Coming up with your own tunings is usually the best course of action.

Although, Drop C# is pretty cool.
