They're all fine ideas, but I don't see why they would be in a PHB. They're DM ideas, surely they belong in the DMG as possiblities?I'm just popping in to link this post of mine from the (+) Halfling thread:
Should they get proficiency and better damage with slings? If I were to rewrite halflings, I might give them magic stone as a racial cantrip.www.enworld.org
If that's what halflings are like, I can get behind that. If the 5.5e/6e PHB does something like that, I would be completely on board with that.
What do the people that disliked the possibility of making Halflings be part of Humans think about this? What about the people who agreed that halflings should be changed? Does this work for both of you? If not, why?
Or in a setting book.
