The Halflings have maintained a peaceful relationship with the Great Eagles for centuries. During times of war, some of the Great Eagles serve as airborne battle mounts for the Halflings. Eagle Riders are among the most skilled and fearless of all Halfling warriors.
In combat, Eagle Riders have only a slight advantage over normal mounted Halfling Pony Riders. Tactically, Eagle Riders have the advantage of being able to scout out larger areas quickly, and can also bypass city walls during sieges.
