A Light in the Dark
Halflings are an agrarian species of humanoids native to Tahanan. Their major cultural center is around Pilik and its Halfling Society of Mutual Interest, Preservation, and Geniality. Most halflings have a love for the simple things in life, though most outside their society only see their love of food and alcohol.
Many halflings go through a period in their late youth or early adulthood known as the Wandering. The young halfling gets an extreme urge to leave home and explore the world. Many become merchants or explorers. A bold few become adventurers.
For most the Wandering lasts 10-15 years. After the urge fades, the halfling settles down, often in his or her hometown. In some rare circumstances, the urge never fades and the halfling never returns home.
