The smallest and humblest of the races, halflings often go unnoticed in the grand scheme of things. It is this obscurity that is also their strength, for fate often turns on factors that go unnoticed until the last moment. It is in these moments, when the whole world seems to hold its breath that the halflings arise to greatness. From the fields and hedgerows, from the alleyways and burrows, from garden and shadow, the little folk emerge to fulfil their destinies.

Unlike many of the other fantasy races, the halflings are not a composite from built from different mythologies, but spring from a small handful of clear sources. Halflings therefore have a rich, coherent background to draw from, but lack the varied breadth of other races. Every halfling adventurer, regardless of class, will find their place in this book. The naïve but determined adventurer, the beguiling trickster, the lethal assassin, the cryptic fortune teller, the master chef, the wise old crone, the undetectable thief; all these halfling archetypes and more can be found within these pages.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
