Strongheart Halflings, Faerun
While the lightfoot halflings value the experience of travel and the sight of new lands and peoples, the stronghearts are a more organized, orderly, and industrious race. They build to last, and fiercely defend their homelands against threats that their lightfoot kin would simply flee. Northland humans familiar with the easygoing ways of the lightfoot halflings are surprised to learn that some halflings are capable of a warrior tradition and aren't afraid to show a hint of arrogance or confidence in their own abilities or strengths. Strongheart halflings enjoy athletic contests and value exceptional skills of all kinds.
Strongheart halflings are not only thicker than lightfoots, but they are also taller, and consequently are often mistaken for small dwarves. Many stronghearts are able to grow beards, and those who do are held in high regards within a clan. The women tend to be more settled than normal and grow wide hips that bear many children. "The larger the family, the stronger the clan" is a true Strongheart saying.
