Stronghearts are the halfling subrace that chose to stay in Luiren after the Hin Ghostwars. The land is almost exclusively inhabited by hin, and the vast majority are Stronghearts. They are industrious folk who build permanent settlements and practice agriculture.
Luiren’s culture is a curious blend of the Stronghearts’ personality: on one hand, they enjoy things that last, but on the other, they feel the halfling wanderlust as well. This has resulted in a way of life unknown elsewhere. The Stronghearts do build stationary communities in which they farm and craft, but they don't live in one place all their life. Whole families or clans can move from one settlement to the other, just for the sake of not staying in one place for too long. Because of this, Stronghearts have a very strong appreciation of cooperation, and they always work for the well-being of the community.
Despite being peace-loving people, Stronghearts can be fierce warriors when their homes are threathened. They are ready to defend against attackers at a moment’s notice. The most revered god is Arvoreen, the Vigilant Guardian, as he reflects the Strongheart mentality quite accurately. Yondalla is also deeply respected, but Stronghearts frown upon the worship of deities outside of the halfling pantheon.

Abilities: +2 Strength, +2 Dexterity, -2 Constitution; (Mechanically: +4 strength, -2 constitution)
