|The strongheart halflings are, like the ghostwise and lightfoot hin, native to Luiren. They trace their ancestry back to the same long-lost days as the other subraces, but unlike their cousins, the stronghearts elected to remain in their homeland following the events of the Hin Ghostwar. The legacy of Chand, the strong-heart war chieftain who galvanized his tribe against the threat of the feral ghostwise, lives on today in a nation that both reinforces and defies many of the expectations nonhalflings have of this race.
||Before the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons, halflings were basically chubby Tolkienian hobbits, or at least generally stout-looking. Starting with the 3rd Edition, they became scaled-down humans in general appearance.
