Reedsborough is the small village of the Halflings in Axios. Reedsborough is found on the outskirts of the Sutican border. The Halflings that had travelled to the village started by building their burrows, the hills growing rapidly and the commotion of footsteps and building taking over for some time until it all seemed to stop suddenly, the townsfolk returning to a place they knew and loved, the towns tavern.

The townsfolk are very protective over their farms along with their shogging logs floating atop the lake. However, these folk loved to farm, party and drink, all being heightened in times of annual festivals and parties. The Halflings live inside their small burrows, all of them are quite small, making it near impossible for any race but a halfling to go into them, unless you're quite small and are on your hands and knees.

History

Reedsborough is led by three Elders and is assisted by the Sheriff in times of need. These Elders are the only ones allowed to let people live in the town, most Halflings being accepted instantly. The three Elders are currently Larry Shortoak, Berilac Overhill and Bolo Willowbottom. Although Reedsborough is under the rule of Sutica, they are left pretty much alone and tend to stay out of the affairs of each other. Nothing much else has happened to the halflings, they are very peaceful folk and haven't done anything noteworthy so far. After 1600, the town of Reedsborough has become less and less inhabited and as more and more halflings moved out, it became deserted and thus the Sutican government decided to have all the owners that were left in the town evicted for it to be used differently. Nowadays nobody lives in the settlement anymore and it awaits new residents.

Culture

The halflings culture is different from most. Halflings are quite a lot like hobbits, and do things like them. Halflings have houses inside hills, and the ground called burrows. They are large enough for a halfling to stand in, so around 3 feet and 6 inches, causing races like humans, elves, and dwarves to have to crawl to get around these burrows. Halflings act differently from the other races, such as wearing no shoes, getting drunk and partying every day, farming, taking care of their village, and smoking halfling grass. Their culture is rather laid back, and are very peaceful. Halflings don't have any special cultural food, they eat food that goes well together and taste great! They also make their own music, their type of music is ones that make them happy and make their heart race.

Geography

This small village houses a small lake, a large farm due to the Halflings love for the land and farming, a large pen for animals such as sheep and pigs. On the outskirts of the village is the beach where some Halflings can be found playing in the sand and preparing for some of the upcoming festivals. In the centre of the plot they have a rather large gazeebo for annual tea parties and socialization. Although this small race loves their privacy they do enjoy travellers who come to trade or visit, many welcomed and invited to sit with them and share a drink in the tavern.

Laws

Reedsborough has many different laws, but most of them are aimed towards halfling!

  • Never wear shoes
  • Never be a thief to your fellow kin
  • Always share
  • Respect everyone and be nice
  • Always drink and have fun
  • Don't hurt anyone without talking it through first
  • Protect your fellow kin
  • Only use shovels
  • Never wear armor.

These are the main laws, and punishments will be decided by the sheriff and his deputy. There are many different types of punishments, depending on the severity you could get spanked, shoveled, or jailed for a day! To clear things up, shoveling is when multiple halflings attack you with a shovel, but to be 'shoveled' may not sound scary, but if you see ten halflings running at you with a shovel, you better get away quickly, as it won't be a quick and painless death!
