Halflings can trace their origin back to Atroa. The island chain is one of the only real halfling nations in the world, and it has been home to their race since the Time of Order. Similar to the gnomes, the halflings were hit hard during the Fall. However, their relatively distant lands managed to survive without too much damage. While most of their kin prefer to stay in their own communities, there are a decent number of halflings who have found their way to the cities and towns of men and made their home there.
