Book Text:

This book is primarily a
study of armor found
throughout the history of
the Halfling race, but it
is liberally laced with
whimsical tales and
anecdotes. At first glance
these stories seem to just
fill the extra pages
between the serious
discussions. And for most
other races it always seems
so. A Halfling reader,
however, sees a link
between the stories, the
armor and the patterns.
There is a powerful logic
in the sequence of the
items shown in the book
that, for the most part,
only Halflings fully
understand. The tales
focus on individuals making
their way through huge

conflicts. The humor is
often about a foe of a
larger race tripping over a
loose boot strap or an
agile opponent finding that
his Halfling foe is even
quicker. In every case the
focus of the story is the
armor, and in every case
the reader learns something
valuable about its
fashioning or adornment.
Of course, in every case
the reader is also amused
and entertained, for what
good is a book if it
doesn't entertain?

The patterns in this book
can be copied many times,
but eventually they will
wear out and you can tell
that if you use the
patterns enough you will

need to replace the book.

To create pattern for
tailoring armor templates
based on these patterns you
will need this book, a
large bottle of ink, a roll
of plain parchment, a quill
and a compacted backpack to
hold the patterns you will
make. You'll also need a
book binding to do the

If you wish to use the
patterns to make molds
you'll need a kiln to work
in as well as a high
quality firing sheet,
sculpting tools, a huge
block of clay and a
compacted backpack to hold
the molds when you're done.
