The Ballad of the Melting King
Halflings have always been a very humble race, who have prefered the simpler life, rather then to form empires and to conquer. They are optimists and almost never lose there sense of humor.
No one knows wether these adventure hungry, curious race was offspring of Dwarves or Gnomes, Nobody knows.
The Halflings were also kept as slaves by Shorr for a long period, however they were not slaughtered. Nobody expects much from Halflings which is why they can get away with so much, and why they can surprise and overcome there foes.
They mostly inhabit the forests of Quinn, and the Drift Lands but can be found anywhere.
