    It sucks because I'm nearily 6 feet tall AND have huge hairy hobbit feet! My wife says I look like the Incredible Hulk... or Fred Flintstone...

    Making Halflings taller is a stupid move. It makes almost every advantage of playing a halfling (other than flavor) pretty much useless. I know if I change up thier sizes in any of my games I wprobably wouldn't have a D&D group for very long.

    Actually, the article stated they'd still be considered "Small". Just a taller sort of Small.

    The hallmark of the halfling has never been there height, or lack thereof, but rather their cherubic features well into old age.

    For me, I think a halfling should be somewhere between 4-4.5 feet tall and constantly mistaken for children. There adventuring gear and mannerisms should be the only sign that they are indeed older than that.

    I don't understand why they changed them. I really do fear them making them more Kender like. In my mind, they will always be Hobits.

    I know adult humans 5 foot tall. Making them taller removes the primary difference, being child sized.

    It's just another reason to ignore the "offical" stuff.

    Okay so rules wise it's the same? Oh that makes everything better.... NOT. lol. Sorry but in my mind the hight thing would make them easier to hit regardless of their facial features or how skinny they are. Much easier to lob the heads off of something 5 ft tall than 4 feet tall because it's at about shoulder height. So if they bend the rules to make the advantage stick, I'm happy the rules are there, but they don't support the "reality" of the game. To me that means WOtC lacks the convictions of thier cause.
