    I think that's a start in the right direction. Never liked the whole "hair on the feet" thing.

    The source article is a good read.

    I like this quote from Jared their senior concept artist, "While still being deep lovers of nature as one expects of this trope, Pantheon Halflings have a wild edge that sets them apart. They embrace a very literal and visceral affinity with nature, wearing furs and hides with plant and animal adornments both. As such they carry into the game with highly tribal design sensibilities, very different to the Halflings we've come to expect from books and film."

    And this one from Justin the lead writer, "But what's really different about them, aside from hairless feet and a town in the trees? For me it's their childlike exuberance. Because of the curse they are old, almost haunted souls, yet they've overcome it with a smile, a song, and a razor sharp appetite for hunting wraiths. This is their normal, and it's quite different."

    The screenshots of the character models are also worth a look. They look good.

    The back story is interesting. I'm interested to see how that develops and matures. I think how well that works depends on the details, who the tormentor is, why, and the curse. I'm not sure if the curse thing works for me. Being cursed sort of implies, especially in fantasy worlds, that one can become uncursed which I doubt is an option. But even if it was what would the uncursed state be like? They should redo the curse concept.
