Topic: Halfling - race bonus question

"Halflings are very quick and agile folk, and so add one to their Dexterity modifier and receive a one point bonus to Armor Class when not surprised."

So halfling DEX modifier is increased by 1 and this = AC +1. Next, we can read that they got +1 bonus to AC.

So my question is --> do they receive +1 to AC -or- they receive cumulative +2 to AC ?


PS. I asked this question on another forum, but I'm still not sure what is the proper answer.

Re: Halfling - race bonus question

I've read it repeatedly, and I can't say for sure!

My initial feeling was that the halfling just gets the bonus to their modifier, and the AC bonus is a result from that. But, you could easily make the case that they get both.
