Civilization and Culture


Halflings were said to have been created by one of the Elven Gods, or possibly one of the Fey Lords shortly after the Sylvan Migration. Formed from a group of fey said to be more playful and joyus in the trickster nature than those around them, they were bound into a single shape, small due to the limited power the fey creatures possessed, but gifted with all their mirth and love of life. Whoever had a hand in their creation, Halflings spent a majority of their early time as a cast off feylike group, living mostly in the deep woods of the world, occasionally living in and among small Elven towns working with their animals and within their fields. Always welcomed by their neighbors, the Halflings had a comfortable, if unfulfilling, existence, and grew to love the tending of their fields, and the husbandry of the animals around them. However sometime after the beginning of the Dawn War, their simple existence was shattered as the Gods and the Primordials warred through both time and space, destruction and creation locked in a battle for the fate of existance, the Halflings were pushed aside, small brings trapped within the conflict that swirled around them. They seemed almost to be forgotten by all, except the Goddess Yondalla who took a special interest in the small scared race, taking them into her protection and bestowing upon them a powerful blessing to 'Help even out the scales the world had set against them', giving them innate and almost supernatural good luck. From that moment forward, the Halflings always seemed to be on step ahead of disaster, one stroke of luck away from destruction.
