Spectres of the Last War
Halflings are a nomadic people native to the Eastern parts of Khorvaire. They began to interact with other races as a result of seeking new lands for animal grazing. After humans, halflings are the most common race seen in Khorvaire, though they still roam the Talenta Plains, using giant reptiles as mounts and herd stock (they ride dinosaurs!).
Halflings can possess Aberrant Marks, the Mark of Hospitality (House Ghallanda—Hostelers Guild), and the Mark of Healing (House Jorasco—Healers Guild).
Mechanically, halflings get +2 to Dexterity and +2 to Charisma or Constitution. They are nimble and can better avoid certain attacks. They get a bonus against fear effects.
