Halflings are essentially short Men, about three and a quarter feet to three and three quarters feet tall. Aside from their stature, Halflings are otherwise identical to humans; any range of skin tone or hair color that one might expect to find on a human, can be just as expected for a Halfling. However, one difference between the races is that they grow excessive hair on their feet; the evolutionary purpose for this is unknown.
There are essentially two kinds of Halflings in the world; those who revel in adventure and excitement, and those who are terrified by such a prospect. The adventuring Halflings are opportunists, living wherever and however it is most beneficial for them to do so, usually in the cities of Men. On the other hand, there are Halflings who live very simple lives as farmers and fishers, almost too content with watching the world pass by. The quite country of Davoi, north of Romeris, is home to a the largest community of peace loving Halflings, residing under the green hills for generations.
All Halflings have a need for community, and are often dedicated guildsmen, whether that is a guild of farmers, merchants, or thieves is a matter of situation. They tend to be good-natured and friendly people, amiable to anyone willing to share a warm meal and a grand tale.
