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 to the hin (as the halflings call themselves) than petty thievery and childish pranks. They are a tough, mature people, proud of theit legacy of centuries of survival in the face of indifference and outright persecution from other races. The Five Shires, the latest Gazetteer for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game system, gives you a total, in-depth look at the hin and their world. CONTENTS: 72-page referee's booklet + 24-page player's booklet + fold-out map.
