The World of Aadrynne
The Lightfoot Halflings
Lightfoot halflings are the most common type of halflings seen in the world, in large part due to their famous wanderlust, which sets them apart from the relatively sedentary ghostwise and strongheart halflings. Lightfoots are most comfortable living alongside other cultures, even adopting their cultural practices, right down to their deities.
A typical lightfoot halfling stands around four feet tall and weighs around 80 pounds. Their skin colors range from light pink to slightly reddish or bronze, and their hair color is typically auburn, brown or black. Males usually wear their hair short on the sides, often with a mullet or bowl cut. Facial hair among males is rare except for extremely old halflings. Females rarely allow their hair to grow beyond shoulder length. When not adventuring or entertaining others, halflings prefer simple, well-made clothes that are comfortable to wear yet look attractive.
The impression a lightfoot halfling always tries to project is that of a mirthful, friendly individual who is always interested in making new friends. Sometimes this light-hearted attitude is genuine, but other times it is facade to lull people into a false sense of security so that they might reveal secrets that will benefit the halfling. Halflings are extremely social towards their own kind and tend to form neighborhoods within cities they inhabit, both for companionship and for mutual protection. While not exactly greedy, halflings do enjoy wealth and respect the power and pleasures that it can bring. However they are careful not to let greed compromise themselves or their society. In addition to information gathering many halflings become collectors of different objects, ranging from mundane items like books or weapons to more exotic interests such as artifacts and other ancient secrets.
The lightfoot halflings can be found anywhere in Faeodal. There is a greater population within the borders of other races, than there is within the halfling homeland of Sherin.
