actual halfling info

Post by Esmerelda » 10 Jun 2018, 21:15


I've been playing a halfling for a little over a year now and its just hit me. I dont know anything about how we age.

Do we age like hobbits in LOTR? or are we closer to humans.

For having the mental age of someone just in her 20s should Carlotta be 22 or 150?

I always figured we age similar to humans, probably just live a bit longer. Dunno for sure though 🤔

It's not actually specified anywhere. You could probably ask your LO to get clarification from SR Bestiary.

I've always assumed we live longer similar to the LoTR, if I physrep Billy accurately I'm 49 in RL but play Billy as someone who is in his late 70's.
Personally, because its left vague in the book, I would just play your character as whatever age you prefer.

Sproggs and Smudge are 19.

But we play very childlike because we're innocent halflings who just wanna adventure.

That beind said sproggs is the more mature one given he looks after smudge alot (And yells about the walls being broken down after rebuilding them)
