Halflings are cleaver, capable opportunists. Halfling individuals and clans find room for themselves wherever they can. Often they are strangers and wanderers, and others react to them with suspicion or curiosity. Depending on the clan, halflings might be reliable, hard-working (if clannish) citizens, or they might be thieves just waiting for the opportunity to make a big score and disappear in the dead of night. Regardless, halflings are cunning, resourceful survivors.

There are two races of halflings: the lightfoot halfling and the less common strongheart halfling.

Both races of halflings are smaller than most humanoids but exceptionally quick, with +2 Dexterity and -2 Strength.
