Halflings

A courageous human sub-race that lives alongside humans and are of distinctively short stature (3’10 – 4’2 on average). Humans and halflings are only considered to be two separate races because human-halfling offspring are born either human or halfling, despite their mixed parentage.

An excerpt from Empire’s Echo: A History of the World (by Oliver Finnagin):

“Unlike Elves and Dwarves, Halflings have little to no ancient culture and folklore to speak of. They seem to have grown alongside Humans and records of them date back hundreds of years. Indeed, they may even have existed in the times of the Old Ones. Halflings have a nigh on identical biological structure to Humans, differing only in height and bone structure.”
