SWL - Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
The Halflings seem an irreligious race. They keep few holy days and seldom seem to pray. They claim to honour Esmeralda, the Rhya-like goddess of hearth and home, who presides over the kitchen. In Halfling belief, she gave Halflings the gift of cookery. Normally, Esmeralda is depicted as a plump and matronly Halfling with a perpetual smile and wearing a flour-covered apron.
But all this seems to be a thin excuse for Pie Week, the Halflings’ sole religious festival. It is a time of eating and indulgence, and little sense can be got out of any Halfling during this week, as all their time is given over to baking and eating huge pies. Humans have begun to adopt this week as a secular holiday.
Some Halflings have been seen making the sign of Ranald, but he does not look to be a common choice of god. Empire scholars have attempted to discover the Halfling pantheon, but have mostly been misled and mocked for their troubles.
