Halflings, Nomad (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The nomad halfling is ment to represent the halfling barbarians that inhabit planes, steppie and desert regions such as in the DnD book Sandstorm.
Nomad halflings, like their more civilized relatives are easy going in every day life, loving food, comfort, drink, play and song. It just so happens that their definitions of those things are diffrent. Nomad halflings are just as happy eating meat off a spit, sleeping under the stars, drinking water, and singing songs from pony or dog back. And their definition of play is drastically different than other halflings, for the nomad halflings play is rough, wrestling, mounted tricks and even raiding other nomadic camps.

Nomad halflings are friendly and open to people they see as "good" and violently hostile to people they see as "Evil" they get along with humans, elfs, gnomes and other halfling tradeing with then and offering thear help winever they can. But a good amount of the nomad halflings time is sent hunting for and raiding goblins, kobolts, orcs and other evil groups, in tought times nomad halflings arent above steeling from thear "Friends" as long as they can spare the goods.
Almost all nomad halflings are Chaotic, Good with some being Neutral, Good. Evil nomad halflings are killed if they do not flee and lawfull nomad halflings normaly leave the tribe.
