Races of Fold: The Halflings
The halflings presented an interesting challenge. They are by virtue of their race, wonderfully vague, yet present such a strong, solid image. To break it down; haflings are a small race, which means (stats and ability wise) they receive a bonus to attack r...

The Races of Fold
Well, a world needs lifeforms to populate it, right? And having just one kind of being would be boring, right? It's a staple of the fantasy genre to have different kinds of sentient being living in a world. Most famously and most obviously, we have Tolkein'...
