Halflings


Also called the Small Folk, Hobbits, Kender (and the more derogatory Peck), Halflings are found throughout the known world. If they have their own kingdom it remains a hidden secret, though some Halflings have banded together to form their own towns and settlements across Europe.
Mainly farmers, Halflings spend most of their off hours enjoying life to the fullest in carefree indulgence, frequently having celebrations and gatherings as an excuse to have a good time.

Some Halflings though feel an adventurous pull on their heart, a calling to the open road. Given their size (which allows them to often go unnoticed by the larger folk) and spectacular dexterity, Halflings make excellent thieves, though Halfling warriors are not an uncommon sight. Halflings worship the goddess Yondalla, Matriarch of the Halflings.

They are a peaceful people, rarely seeking out violence and conflict, but they possess a fierce will and courageous heart that often carries them through even the most hazardous of situations, as though Fortune herself was smiling down on them.

Halfling usually stand about three feet tall, weighing about forty or so pounds, on average. Given their size they are no were near as stout or strong as a human, but they are vastly quicker and more agile than a man.

The average life span of a Halfling is around ninety years.
