The Halflings of Cartyrion
Life for a halfling is all about the pursuit of the good things in life: pleasant company... comfortable surroundings... and most important of all, good food and drink. That doesn't mean you're lazy, or unwilling to actually work toward surrounding yourself with these things though. In fact, you may be quite industrious and creative in your pursuit of "good living". Your people exist because one of the Humanar deities that first Awakened your "big cousins" the Humans decided that their first creations were a bit too stoic in their approach toward life. So when Caronalyn of the Humanar Awakened your first ancestors, she instilled in them a deep sense of appreciation for comfort and happiness.
Physical DescriptionHalflings are short - about half the size of their Human "big cousins". Otherwise, they resemble Humans in proportion and most physical features, though their appreciation for good food means many will end up a bit bulkier than the average human in build. They tend to be more nimble than humans as a rule, though - a necessity when living in a world full of bigger Folk.
Facial CharacteristicsHalflings have very human-like faces. Some have ears are ever so slightly pointed, but others have "human-rounded" ears. Facial hair is rare, though not unheard of among Halfling males.
Native LanguageThere is a distinct Halfling language, but it is rarely spoken even among Halflings except in long-established predominantly Halfling communities. It is more prevalent among Darkwood and Gloomwalker cultures, and Pastorals to a lesser extent. Common is more prevalent. A Halfling will quickly pick up any language dominant where they live.
