The Golden Sands of Irukhtir
Originally native to the forests of Äresta, the Quista have come to be called halflings due to being half the stature of a human. The Quista seem to have very capricious desires. Some cling ardently to the nature-worshipping culture that their history dictates, but others have thrown themselves into the cultures of the humans they accompany.
Quista who follow the Figu Bau (literally “old way”) often refer to themselves as having a variety of animal characteristics, using metaphors to identify themselves with nature, a totem creature or the elements. These more traditional Quista refer to others who eschew tradition as Paiyiri (“those who abandon”) or explicitly as halflings, using the derogatory term to distinguish their less faithful brethren.Quista racial traits:
