The Onyx Throne
Half lings are prone to traveling, finding comfort in making their unique qualities useful to travelers and forging their way as best they can in the human-run trade settlements of Varisia. Half lings with f lexible moral compasses can easily find a way to exploit the otherwise honest machinations of trade along the routes from Varisia to other nations, bringing illicit goods with them to peddle on the side; more honorable individuals, however, may instead use their skills to ward off would-be swindlers and bandits they might encounter on the road. Half lings from communities such as Baslwief can make a tidy profit trading their mined ores to other parts of Varisia or lands to the north. Caravans often find half lings particularly useful in roles such as cooks, scouts and messengers, and thus seek to hire such talented individuals.
