Desert people through and thought, the Bervan Halflings are as harsh as the land they call home. Bervans do not follow Isemish law except within city limits, and consider all lands that are not within city limits their territory to do with as they please. They follow strict codes of honor and rarely deviate from custom, and though nearly all are skilled warriors they are not prone to starting fights. Still, it is highly recommended that you never make a Bervan angry. Each Bervan clan has a clan cheif, selected by some unspoken right, and each sept has a sept chief, chosen by their clans cheif and wise ones. Leading the Bervans just as readily as the chiefs are the Wise Ones, advisors and caretakers all, the Wise Ones command just as readily as the Clan Chiefs do.
