Three major subraces of halflings dwell in Faerûn: the lightfoot halflings, the rare ghostwise, and the strongheart halflings of Luiren in the south. Like the rock gnomes, many halflings live among Big Folk in the human lands. They are resourceful and quick, perfectly at home among the sprawling human lands or living apart in their own settled communities.
The halflings' name for their race in Faerûn is the hin, although most accept "halfling" with a shrug and a smile.
The most common type of halflings seen in Faerûn, the lightfoots are the most likely to give in to their desire to wander. They are at home living side by side with folk of many different races and cultures. Lightfoot halflings are more likely to worship nonhalfling deities than any other halfling subrace.
Some lightfoot halflings are wandering traders, craftsfolk, and entertainers. A clan of several extended families may settle in a human town for a year or two, working and trading, and then pick up their stakes and move on for reasons known only to themselves. The lightfoot halfling entry on Table 1-4: Character Regions (FRCS, p. 30) describes a lightfoot halfling of this seminomadic sort.
Many lightfoot halflings prefer a more sedentary existence. The kingdom of Luiren is the ancestral homeland of the halfling race, and some lightfoots live there. Other lightfoots settle permanently in just about any land in which humans live. Any region entry for a human land is acceptable for a lightfoot character.
