The Tragedy of Tirath
Halflings are a fairly isolated race, and most people (humans or otherwise) tend not to pay them much attention. This is generally regarded as a good thing by most halflings, who are more than happy to live their simple lives in peace and quiet. Most halflings live within the valley of the Swarnan river in a number of closely located fairly agrarian villages and communities. There are some among them who crave a more interesting life and venture out into the wide world in search of adventure. These “thrill seekers” are generally underestimated by those they meet and are considered quite strange. There are rumors of an isolated tribe of halflings which live in an equatorial jungle and are about as different from the halflings we are generally familiar with as they are elusive.
