Humans (and other races) call them "halflings," and tend not to take the little folk too seriously. They look like children, so they get treated like children - distrusted, underestimated, or just plain ignored. But there's much more to the hin (as the halflings call themselves) than petty thievery and childish pranks. They are a tough, mature people, proud of their legacy of centuries of survival in the face of indifference and outright persecution from other races. The Five Shires, the latest Gazetteer for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system, gives you a total, in-depth look at the hin and their world, including:
A new Halfling character class
Everything you need to know about halfling magic
Exciting adventures in the Five Shires
A large full-color map of the Five Shires, and its towns
A secret about halfling pirates
