Book Text:

Only a fool thinks of a
Halfling as nothing more
than a tiny bundle of
silliness. Their laughter
is certainly the most
common sound at their
gatherings, but a Halfling
takes matters of war as
seriously as they do any
party. The long tradition
of the Leatherfoot guards
is a testament to their
ability to take danger
seriously. Conflict,
however, is something that
these gentle folk prefer to
keep out of their daily
lives, and sometimes it can
be difficult to rouse a
settlement of Halflings
into the attitude needed to
deliver a war properly.
These volumes explore
in-depth the traditions,



symbols and organizations
of Halfling war. It shows
the tradition of symbols
and banners used in war,
focusing on insignia used
on armor.

This volume talks about the
rural heroes that pop up
throughout Halfling
history. As the text
progresses it becomes clear
that many of the people
that are heroes to
Halflings were once
farmers, simple shop
owners, bakers or other
unpresuming folk. However,
it also tells some stories
of those that, despite
doing great deeds, have
never become famous heroes.
It makes a reasonable link
between the fame of these



heroes and the symbols that
represent them. Cleverly
woven stories lead the
reader through many
wonderful stories while
also teaching them about
these symbols.

Among the pages of
discussion about these
symbols is a pattern. This
pattern combines the
symbols of Halfling heroes
to produce the most potent
symbol of Halfling culture
you have ever seen. You
know that you will be able
to reproduce this pattern
many times before the book
becomes worn and you must
replace it.

To create a pattern for
tailoring armor templates



based on these patterns you
will need this book, a
large bottle of ink, a roll
of superb vellum, a quill
and a compacted backpack to
hold the patterns you will
make. You'll also need a
book binding to do the
work.
