Abridged History of the 10th Age
A visibly dirty halfling tries for nought to wipe the dirt off his hands, his clothing is similarly encrusted in mud and dust. Green eyes peer back at you from a dirty face, beneath a disheveled mop of brown hair.

Depending on your opinion, or point of view, Rabo’s parents were awful or quaint. Suppy and Pirren were set on the name Roba, and when their first son was born gave him that name, but they were blessed with twins, Rabo came into the world not a minute after his older brother. Hence, awful or quaint, Rabo and Roba… Naming children like that should be a sin. In any case the two were nearly identical and only they themselves knew which one was which.
Seasons changed, more joined their family, Frennah, Garabella, Surly, and while the family was jovial and friendly, the eldest two brothers had a bond they shared with no other, where one went the other followed, playing, learning, laughing, leading a simple life the family got by for many seasons.
The two matured together, snickering behind backs, trading secrets and dreams, gossiping about whether Windry was cuter than Lyllyn or vice versa (Rabo always though it was a moot argument, Pemellia had more grace charm and beauty than both those cows combined). Roba suitably earned the reputation of being the more mischievous of the two, daring Rabo into silly acts, although half the town claimed it was Rabo who was the worse influence on Roba but no matter who you talked to the two were a known pair, only apart when making eyes at this girl or that girl.
Then one day Rabo and Roba were working the mine for a little extra coin, a merry gang the lot of them were, lead by Svembli the gaggle of halflings forayed into the mountain. They toiled long and hard, but still they would jest and laugh heartily, scraping what little iron they could out of the maze of tunnels.
While they toiled they were set upon by vicious goblins, and a few halflings were caught in the initial surge, in the chaos they ran, the muscles remembered many previous strides as Rabo and Roba would chase each other about the hillside, a few halflings turned their crude tools to the tunnel walls in an effort to collapse the tunnel on both parties.
They ran, Roba tripped, the tunnel fell. The fate of everyone else but Rabo is known only to the gods.
Thus a whole entered and a half returned, Suppy didn’t understand, she begged, pleaded, screamed and cried. Pirren met Rabo with silence and a gift, old mail, worn once by Bobon Handblower long ago, many in the town didn’t believe Rabo’s recount of the event. So he packed up what he could and set out to Hilling, where he’ll lash out at the enemies of his people.
