Resembling small children, halflings are often mistaken for such. They rarely feel the need to wear shoes, having feet with thick leathery soles and warm tufts of hair on top.
Halflings enjoy three things in life. Good food (and plenty of it), good company (and lots of excuses for parties) and nature.
Life isn’t fair.
The halflings’ blissful existence ended with The Shattering. Being small and physically weak left them at the mercy of those larger than them and they now live their lives in slavery and servitude. It’s either that or trying to eek out an existence on their own, scrounging or stealing what they can from the big people. Thankfully their small stature makes them excellent at sneaking around and they are often overlooked by others.
There are no major settlements of halflings anymore.
