The halfling, originally called the hobbit, is a race in Dungeons & Dragons. Halflings are short, nimble humanoids with an aptitude for sneaking. A halfling is a short humanoid, typically around three to four feet tall, and weighing around 30 to 40 pounds.
Halflings are especially nimble. They have a reputation for exceptional luck when it comes to avoiding danger. They often possess excellent skill at throwing sling stones, darts and other ranged weapons, these being popular sports in halfling communities. Their small size gives them an advantage against larger opponents, and they are skilled at hiding from danger.
