The ghostwise are easily the most uncommon of the three sub-races of halfling living in Faerûn. They are elusive and do not welcome strangers to their lands. Instead, they prefer to pursue a nomadic way of life within their adopted homeland, the Chon-dalwood, associating mainly with those of their own clan. Those who seek out the ghostwise most often fail to achieve their goal; the fortunate among them live to regret their intrusion into hin territory.

Racial Traits

Ghostwise halflings have all the halfling racial traits given in Chapter 2 of the Player's Handbook (pp. 15) except as follows:

  • Speak without Sound (Su): A ghostwise halfling, unlike other halflings, can communicate telepathically with any creature within 20 feet, just as if speaking to him or her. The halfling can only speak and listen to one person at a time, and he must share a common language with the other person or creature he speaks to telepathically, or the telepathic link fails.
  • Ghostwise halflings do not receinver the standard halfling +1 racial bonus on all saving throws. They simply are not as lucky as their lightfoot cousins.
