The Origins of Halflings on Serrade is just as much a mystery as the origin of Elves. Many scholars believe the Halflings and Elves are cousins descended from an ancient race of Fey from another plane.
There are two major Halfling cultures in Serrade:
• Stout -The Halflings that exist in the Serranzia along side the Elves. These Halflings are not adventuresome and tend to form deep rooted, tightly knit communities. They are hospitable to those who carry tokens of Elven friendship, but otherwise they are mistrustful of travelers.
• Lightfoot – Hailing from the valleys West of the Elfwood and East of the Esterange Mountains. These are a more adventurous sort, but they are still wary of outsiders, often they will venture into the forest to trade with their Halfling brothers, and Elven cousins.
