Humans (and other races) call them "halflings," and tend not to take the little folk too seriously. They look like children, so they get treated like children - distrusted, underestimated, or just plain ignored.
But there's much more to the hin (as the halflings call themselves) than petty thievery and childish pranks. They are a tough, mature people, proud of theit legacy of centuries of survival in the face of indifference and outright persecution from other races. The Five Shires, the latest Gazetteer for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system, gives you a total, in-depth look at the hin and their world, including:
* A new Halfling character class
* Everything you need to know about halfling magic
* Exciting adventures in the Five Shires
* A large full color map of the Five Shires, and its towns
* A secret about halfling pirates
* Seperate DM and Players' Booklets - 96 pages in all!
