Elves seemed to be the most powerful demi-human in the B/X D&D ruleset. They melee like fighters and cast spells like magic-users AND they go to level 12 (one better than 11, eh Nigel?).
What if all demi-human were fighter/[something] combinations?
The Rockhome gazetteer already posits a dwarf-cleric. Perhaps halflings are fighter-thieves?
Maybe they all go to 12th level.
Man, halflings got the short-end of the stick. I'm not really sure why anyone would play one.
And this comes from a avid Tolkien fan.
OK. Here's a picture of an elf, dwarf and what passes for a halfling. Don't say I didn't get you anything for New Year's.
