    I am unsure if Create Food and Water provides fiber-rich food.

    It creates a bland version of whatever basic meal you want. Porridge and oatmeal are simple and already pretty bland.

    Can always add a prestidigitation trap or two to spice up the food anyway.

    Well, Dark Sun halflings are described as having the same body proportions as humans, so there'd be no issues. On the other hand, OOTS characters all have abnormally large heads, so who knows?

    Regarding the specifics and origins of acres, there are forum members on multiple continents* with a plethora of scientific careers that require utilizing a wide range of units. You should ALWAYS expect unit-of-measurement discussions! (Rather like how you should always expect a head rub.)

    * Most of us are in North America. I know of at least two forumites in South America, several from Europe, a few from Asia, and a pair from Australia. I can't think of any from Africa, but that could just be me being forgetful - or not visiting the right parts of the forum. If any of us have ever been to Antartica, I'd love to hear about it!

    I've been to Antarctica, but only for about an hour or so on the mainland, in the most-northern parts, and only a stone's throw from the sea. It was a soft adventure cruise out of Ushuaia, that also visited South Georgia Island. Lots of penguins, seals, albatrosses, and icebergs. No bugbears.

    Of course not! Like polar bears, bugbears live at the North Pole!

    Halflings are egg-laying mammals. Like the platypus and the echidna.

    Although "egg" is misleading. The egg never "hatches" - it just grows in size and eventually develops features - like eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and hair - and thus becomes the head of a halfling child.

    Their neck and torso sprout from the head during puberty, like a stem from a seed. When they fully grow all four limbs, then are they considered a grown adult. This is why halflings have such a powerful "wanderlust". You try spending twenty years as mainly a head - you'd want to start walking as much as you could, too.

    Thus the origin of the term 'headcanon' came with the gnomish realization of a renewable green source of projectiles for black-powder siege weapons.

    Like bees distributing pollen for the flowers. Truly, a most beautiful and elegant symbiosis.

    Is mushroom flour even possible?

    Hopefully the lore paid lip service to fungi being genetically closer to animals than plants, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Thank you everyone for your answers!

    Yeah you can use powdered dried mushrooms to substitute part of flour. And we definitely make flour from things other than plants; cricket flour is increasingly popular.

    Honestly a deepspawn is my answer to every D&D problem.
