Hobbits, as Halflings call themselves, love the garden and moist, dark soil above all else. Even though others have accused them of being theives, this is not their disposition. However, their knowledge of plants and exotic uses (like tobacco and the pipe) make them natural alchemists. A sleeping potion might often be used to put their enemies asleep. They don’t see the harm in pinching a little something from a sleeping enemy, either. Their small stature and affinity for nature around them also makes it easy for a Halfling to travel undetected. A small distraction goes a long way for a Halfling. Halflings also have a knack throwing rocks and darts. Some explain this is due to darts being the national sport. Other explain drinking fine brews as the national sport and darts simply happened to pass the time.
Halflings live in small, close-knit villages organized by a matriarch or patriarch. They love fine food and drink, and they lead, simple, comfortable lives. A refined, sophisticated hobbit is rare indeed, but many people find their unassuming demeanor easiest among the non-humans to cooperate with. They are short and stout with leathery soles and thick hair on the tops of their feet. They always carry a pipe and cooking supplies somewhere on their person.
