Halflings are a small race known for their resourcefulness, quick wits, and steady nerves. They are a nomadic folk who roam waterways and marshlands. No people travel farther or see more of what happens in the world than halflings. They are creatures of the earth who love a warm hearth and pleasant company. Halflings are folks of few enemies and many friends, content with simple lives and rarely gaining more prestige than the respect of their local community. They are sometimes referred to fondly by members of other races as “the good folk", for little upsets them or corrupts their spirit. For many halflings, the greatest fear is to live in a world of poor company and mean intent, where one lacks the freedom and comfort to pursue his or her own life.
