Halflings are considered a scourge in Richese, filthy vermin with the sole intent on stealing from good honest folk. Ironic, since these ‘good honest folk’ also depend on the sprouts to do repairs and work that requires finesse. But such contempt has made Halfling families into gypsies, always moving about for fear more then anything. A certain few though, these borrowers, take the misconception of them a step further – they are able to create weaker replicas of any items they have a chance to repair or study. Although these replicas last for only a few short days, the havoc they can create is limitless.
