Halfling is a creature subtype introduced for Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms.
Halflings are humanoid creatures similar in shape to humans, but around half their size. They are not quite as stocky as the similarly-sized dwarves. The creature type was adapted from Dungeons & Dragons, which in turn took its inspiration from J. R. R. Tolkien's hobbits.
Asked about halfling becoming a supported creature type, Mark Rosewater stated that creature types being in Adventure in the Forgotten Realms, doesn’t necessarily mean they’re being added to larger Magic.
It remains to be seen how the type will be handled in the Tolkien-inspired Lord of the Rings set.
