Halflings resemble humans, although they are quite short, usually under a
meter tall. With a cursory glance, one might even mistake them for a human
child, but a closer inspection will reveal thick, dark hair growing on their
hands and oversized feet. Halflings are very charismatic and form close-knit
communities, rarely venturing out on their own.
Traits and Abilities:
Being so small, Halflings are obviously not very strong. They have only
average intelligence and stamina, but their nimbleness and wisdom make up for
it greatly. Their charisma and agility make them excellent highwaymen,
although they are not deceptive by nature.
Halflings are believed to have descended from humans who lived in remote,
mountainous areas. The rough terrain allowed the lighter of the halflings to
be able to navigate the treacherous mountain paths with ease. Their smaller
bodies also meant they could survive on less when food was scarce.
