I have to admit that I have not had a chance to play 4th edition all that much, but one thing that I did like from 4th edition was how the halfling was designed. Halflings were generally portrayed as fleet of foot and witty, and the slower land speeds assigned to the halfling in previous editions made them worse at the kind of roles they were supposedly good at. A halfling pickpocket that was caught stealing in a 3.5 game would more than likely get chased down by his larger victim, whereas in 4th edition that same pickpocket actually stands a chance of escaping. A standard land speed of 30 feet (6 squares) just makes more sense for the halfling than the 25 foot land speed given to the halfling in the test packet. Anyone else feel the same way?
