Creatures of the earth who love a warm hearth and pleasant company, halflings are folks of few enemies and many friends. Halflings are widely dispersed throughout Faerûn and survive by escaping the notice of big folk.

Halflings (or hin, as they often call themselves) are easily distinguished by their small size, though they dislike being judged solely on account of their short height. Like humans, halflings have regional variations in facial features and complexions. They have the same general appearance as humans, except that their physical qualities are all diminutive.

Many halfling traditional homelands are no more. Out of tragedy however, the halfling race has become stronger, more unified, and it has earned the respect of other races. Halfling communities are large and frequent along the Sea of Fallen Stars as well and in many human-dominated cities, it is now commonplace to see halflings walking the streets. In this area, a number of halflings have taken to the seas in search of profit and adventure.

Exceptions aside, halflings are satisfied by a life filled with farming and commonplace pursuits. The majority are concerned only with the practical necessities of life. The value they place on friendship and community has led halflings to become integral parts of many human and elven societies in Faerûn’s northern reaches.
