    Halflings

    Do any "true" halfling areas akin to "The Shire" exist or are they merely living aside humans?

    Are there any references to halfling bastions left within the Shadow World?

    The only halfling realm is in Brechtur next to Coulabbhie. It is called 'the burrows'. Halfling populations also live i human and elven lands. Bloodspawn notes that some halflings (generally serving the Lost) still live on the shadow world but doesn't go into detail.

    Right. But I meant on a smaller scale, say a province or city level rather than a full realm.


    Has anyone added any homebrew versions to their campaigns?

    Outside of the Burrows, I wouldn`t include them at anything more than
    a village or small town here and there. As a general rule they
    shouldn`t exist in groups of more than a thousand or so. However, in
    that context they could be all over the place and doing any number of
    things. For instance, in the Gheallie Sidhe reference work I wrote
    up a few weeks ago I propose a community of halflings living in Cwmb
    Bheinn and "cooperating" with the GS. A halfling district of the
    Imperial City has a certain charm. Any number of cities might have
    their equivalent of insular, halfling communities that "integrate"
    culturally but still manage to keep to themselves.

    I used a hafing "ghetto" in the Imperial City at one point. It was called the Rookery, and I portrayed it as a feux-Victorian London city block with maze-like halls, crawl-ways, stairs and narrow alleys. I do not remember exactly what they were up to, but since I have an inherent distrust for halflings, I can guarantee it was no good.
