Unlike every other culture in Marassa the plains halflings don’t have any permanent settlements. They are hunter-gatherers and tend to break up into bands of less than 200 that hunt Elk herds using Cheetah mounts. Plains halflings have a dark bronze complection and a tendency towards lighter hair, as a result of long hours under the sun.
