The Lightfoot Highlands

Ever since before the founding of Eliador halflings have dwelled in the rollings hills of the Lightfoot Highlands. These are a carefree folk, who spend their days farming and their nights frolicking in revelry and mirth. Despite their natural penchant for all things sneaky, most of them settle for a quiet life of hard work and a strong sense of community. Now I say most, for there are those who give in to their inner ambition to become a cutpurse, a scoundrel, a sneak.

Halflings are a superior race when it comes to performing shadowy activities, such as gaining entrance to seemingly impenetrable vaults and getting their hands on items meant to be untouchable, only to disappear without a trace. It is a little known fact that from time to time a skillful halfling rogue may find himself in the service of the noble court of Eliador, whether it be to steal from other nobles or participating in various forms of spycraft. They may act the part of the street urchin to get close to a thieves guild lord, or perhaps serve as a kitchen hand in the household of a duke in order to acquire useful knowledge. The community of Lightfoots openly denounce the activities of these few "agitators" but I believe there are more than a few that secretly admire and envy their exploits.

Of course every race is not without their legends and the Lightfoot halflings are no exception. For centuries the Stoutfellow family have been stewards of the pride of the Highlands, Jogo, the Trickster. A rapier of exquisitely sharp steel, it is renowned for finding its way into the backs of many a unsuspecting victim. Many a halfling have tried to steal Jogo for himself, but by and by the Stoutfellow family were successful every time in keeping Jogo safe. It was so until recently that the mayor of the Lightfoot Highlands, the overly fattened Toogwickam, forced the Stoutfellows to hand over the sword to keep it "safer" from would-be burglars. After forcibly confiscating the sword, Toogwickam stored it in his personal vault, hidden somewhere in his luxurious home. Not much is known about fat Toogwickam, only that he was not always a fat and intolerably rude fellow as he is now.
