Desert Halflings[edit]


Desert Halflings prefer trouble to boredom. They are notoriously curious. Relying on their ability to survive or escape danger, they present a daring that few larger creatures can match. They love treasure hunting and trap setting. They tend to spend their treasure as quickly as they acquire it.

Physical Description[edit]

Desert Halflings stand about 3 feet tall and usually weigh 30-35 pounds. They have darker skin and tend to look wind-swept and a little beaten. They have dark straight hair and darker brown to black eyes. They wear long, comfortable clothing that covers their entire body. They reach adulthood at about 20 and live into their second century.


Desert Halflings tend to get along well with every race. They actively try to make themselves valuable and pleasant to be around.


Desert Halflings tend towards neutrality. While they are wily pranksters and accept change (chaotic), they enjoy some constancy in such things like family ties and honor.


Desert Halflings live in, as their name suggests, the desert. the further into the desert, the more comfortable they are.


The Desert Halfling language is very simply written but extensively spoken. Their oral tradition is very strong.
