Halflings settled on the Eastern Shores of the continent. Their lands are really broken into two. The Northern section is predominantly grasslands with a scattering of thin forests and groves. To the south of the Low mountain range, is a cold desert and in some areas a salt flat as a result of the cold coastal winds that cannot make it over the mountain range.
Many other races that are seeking a way of life that isn’t outlined by someone else (such as a King) has been known to come to Kudugin and live out the frontier life and live off the land.
