From publisher blurb:
Humans (and other races) call them "halflings," and tend not to take the little folk too seriously. They look like children, so they get treated like children?distrusted, underestimated, or just plain ignored.
But there's much more toe the hin (as the halflings call themselves) than petty thievery and childish pranks. They are a tough, mature people, proud of their legacy of centuries of survival in the face of indifference and outright persecution from other races. The Five Shires, the latest Gazetteer for the Dungeon & Dragons game system, gives you a total, in-depth look at the hin and their world, including:
- A new halfling character class
- Everything you need to know about halfling magic
- Exciting adventures in the Five Shires
- A large full color map of the Five Shires, and its towns
- A secret about halfling pirates
- Separate DM and player's booklets — 96 pages in all!
- The secret of the Blackflame
