Halflings prefer to fight defensively, usually hiding and launching ranged attacks as the foe approaches. There tactics are very much like those of elves but place more emphasis on cover and concealment and less on mobility.
Tallfellow Traits (Ex):
- +1 racial bonus to all saving throws.
- +2 morale bonus to saving throws against fear. (This bonus stacks with the halfling's +1 bonus to saving throws in general.)
- +1 racial attack bonus with a thrown weapon.
- +2 racial bonus to Search, Spot, and Listen checks. Like an elf, a tallfellow who merely passes within 5 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check as though actively looking for it
Skills: Tallfellows' keen hearing bestows a +2 racial bonus to Listen checks.
