Halfling-athas.jpgMost halflings hail from the Forest Ridge, a mysteri­ous and legendary jungle said to crown the Ringing Mountains. Halflings live apart from other races, divided by their stature and odd customs, but no one can deny their bravery and cunning. The savagery for which they are feared masks a deep and abiding reverence for the natural world and an uncom­mon connection to the land’s spirits. Halflings live throughout the Tyr Region—some as slaves, others as mercenaries, and still others as raiders. Regardless, all halflings look to the Forest Ridge as their homeland.
Halflings see all creatures as potential sources of sustenance. After all, living beings compete to survive, and halflings think nothing of eating their enemies, for doing so ensures their own survival.

Use all the halfling traits as described in the PHB® with the following changes:

  • Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 2 and your Wisdom score by 1.
  • Alignment. Halflings tend towards lawfulness. Uncomfortable with change, halflings tend to rely on intangible constants, such as racial identity, family, clan ties and personal honor. On the other hand, halflings have little respect for the laws of the big people.
  • Subrace. You can’t choose a subrace.
  • Naturally Stealthy. You can attempt to hide even when you are obscured only by a creature that is at least one size larger than you.
  • Languages. You can speak Halfling. You cannot read these language unless a background gives you that trait. It is strongly recommended that you choose a background that grants you the Common language.
