You Must Be This High To Ride

Our next fantasy homebrew campaign, due to to start in about a month's time, is shaping up to be an interesting one. Right now, of 4 players, 3 will likely be playing short races. We're looking at a goblin, a halfling, and possibly a dwarf or a gnome. Our holdout may be playing a human, but we're really close to having a party comprised of smallfolk only. I'm wondering how such a thing would impact the campaign--the big thing I can think of is NPC perception of the characters (thinking of Monsieur Frodo & company and their reception in various parts of Middle Earth) , but I'm also wondering if there are many traps or encounters that would be thrown wildly out of whack for this. I've GM'd a lot of campaigns over the years, but that would definitely be a first.

At some point in the game a standard, clich├ęd, decapitating-blade-swinging-out-from-the-wall-trap must trigger and swoosh right over the PC's heads. :)

Passages filled with 5ft. of water are a real pain in the butt. We fell pray to this problem in a recent Pathfinder Society adventure.
