Tales from Velrah
Hobbits are creatures of comfort. They enjoy practical past times, such as pipe smoking and carving. Anything that does not create sweat on the Halfling brow except gardening, because that creates the Hobbits favorite thing, food. Halflings love to eat and each family has a special family dish. When a player selects the dish that they want it must have five ingredients at least. One rare, two uncommon and two common. Consult the table for food effects. Hobbits stand 3ft 2 inches +2d4 and for SIZ they roll 2D6 + 1D4.
