Ghostwise halflings were the most uncommon of the three halfling subraces.[5]

DescriptionEdit

Ghostwise halflings have the ability to communicate telepathically with any creature within 20 feet that speaks the same language.[2]

PersonalityEdit

Ghostwise halflings were generally very concerned (some might say obsessed) with family and clan. They do not experience as much wanderlust as the other halflings subraces.[7]

SocietyEdit

Ghostwise halflings were very elusive and were generally isolated from the outside world.[6] They often lived a nomadic life in clans. Those who left the clan often carried a token of some important natural feature in their clan's territory, such as a stone or a vial of water from a stream. Losing one's token was considered a sin and required an act of atonement assigned by the clan leader.[8]

HistoryEdit

Hin GhostwarsEdit

Like the other halfling subraces (lightfoot halflings and strongheart halflings), ghostwise halflings were one of the original tribes of the Lluirwood in Luiren. Around -100 DR, a ghostwise halfling cleric named Desva began leading the ghostwise in the worship of Malar and violence, performing savage acts on the creatures and other halflings of the forest. In -68 DR, the stronghearts and lightfoots allied against the ghostwise and battle continued for years until Chand of the stronghearts slew Desva in -65 DR. Most of the surviving ghostwise left Luiren for the Chondalwood, making an oath that they wouldn't speak until they had atoned for their savagery.[9]

CombatEdit

Many ghostwise halflings were barbarians. In the Chondalwood, some ghostwise halfling warriors became nightgliders, warriors who rode giant owls.[5]
