So I was watching Willow today, and now I'm thinking that in my next campaign, halflings will be able to use magic. (That is, they can advance as magic-users) I'm kind of tired of hobbits, and I want nothing to do with the scrawny, dreadlocked halflings of contemporary editions.
...you know, I could even make this change in my present campaign if so desired; we have no halflings in the party as of yet, and I don't think the characters have even met any halfling NPCs.
I think I'm going to play up the "wee folk" aspect of halflings and make them semi-magical creatures like leprechauns, brownies, etc. It might make for an interesting campaign world detail.
