Tales of the Northern March
Population: 20,000 halflings
This valley has been home to halflings as far back as they can remember. They are self-sufficient and trade very little. They have no nobles, instead deferring to those of age and experience. The town of Plumbank is just a large market whose permanent residents are dedicated craftsmen. It is also the site of their logan stone. They are not without their troubles. Hill giants and their dire wolf pets regularly raid the villages from the surrounding hills. The halflings have adapted by building crannags so their villages are over water with access by walkways that can’t support their weight. The only buildings on land are the sheelings that herdsmen use during the summer. Even worse than the giants, though, is the green dragon which occasionally comes from the south, for it doesn’t restrict itself to sheep and goats, often stealing away their sons and daughters.
