Halflings are a common mortal race. They are not native to Pristat or Prog Nasik, and their extensive oral tradition claims that they arrived on Pristat from across the sea. This is evidenced in the fact that Halflings do not go to Raj upon death.
They have a strange relationship with the other races. They are generally favored by the Dwarves and Elves, but they have no cities of their own. Their skittish personalities lead them to take up rather uninteresting professions, but their natural wanderlust constantly tugs on them. As a result, they often hop from job to job, picking up different skills, much to the frustration of their non-halfling friends.
Halflings commonly travel in extended families, with a large caravan full of goods, trading with other peoples, never remaining in the same town for more than a week.
