Though often thought of as being as out of the way and meek as they are small, halflings have a long history as adventurers and daring doers throughout the ages. Because their culture places more emphasis on families, games, and campfire stories, they have never held control of a nation of their own, and yet they thrive nearly any place they choose to call home. Despite their small stature, their quick wit and quicker bodies make them remarkably suited for adventuring to find a new story or two.
