The Halflings are the first born of Vellah, Mother of men and Goddess of Fertility. They are numerous and spread far and wide.
Halflings are a common sight throughout Orofel, and can be found at the highest seats of power, the lowest of slums, and everywhere in between. They are the oldest race of Men, and the first mortal race to be born into the world.While sharing a stature with Dwarves and Gnomes, this is all they share. The Halflings are actually more closely related to Humans and Orcs. These three races are sometimes referred to as the “Races of Men,” the three races birthed by Vellah herself.
The Halflings were born to survive through their quick wit, and quicker reflexes. They learned to survive and thrive in an untamed world, before any other mortals walked the land. These little folk created the first civilizations, and even the name of the world, Orofel, is an old Halfling word whose original meaning has been lost to time.
