Dragons in Dungeons
"Sure, I miss the rolling hills of me home village, the smell of freshly cooked barley cake and potato stew; a blazing fire and the sound of me ma's fiddle. But there's nothing like standing atop a mountain, bare naked, pissing off the edge. The simple things in life change when life does, I enjoy them all the same." – Harley Stoutfoot, Nebel Mountain trail guide
Hobbits are a charmingly simple and affable people who strive for the comforts of a warm home with some peace and quiet. For most, a hot meal, a packed pipe, a strong drink, and good conversation is heaven. Those who leave their small farming villages for adventure are considered bold or eccentric for leaving the safety of their nests.
Hobbit ancestors lived in the lands that became Ostegard alongside Human ancestors, but the unchecked ambition of the latter soon overtook Hobbit lands. Yet they consider themselves kin to the Humans and have many established farming communities near Drumlin.
The long-standing, if uneven, relationship with Humans leads to boundless opportunities and Hobbits can fit in with any group throughout Terra. Although half the size of most races, they stand as proud and tall as any. Hobbits should never be underestimated, they are wise, affable companions and fierce allies.
