So I’ve been reading the Pathfinder RPG for a while, and there are a few things about it I absolutely love. One of them was the fact that halflings get Abyssal as a default language. The little buggers have always seemed sort of suspicious to me, frankly. Not as dour as a dwarf, not as funny as a gnome, just a little bit too damn apple-cheeked to be believed.
So, clearly, halflings are tools of the demonic world and should speak Abyssal. Imagine my crushing disappointment when I learned that this was a typo and would be corrected from the galleys I had. So sad, really.
But then I thought: HEY, someone at Paizo thinks halflings are demon spawn. I don’t know who, but they are clearly kindred spirits. And I swear, I may just have to make this canon in the Zobeck setting.
