Hoopak (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Simple Melee Weapons
The seemingly useless hoopak is the invention of the Kender(See Kender: DLCS Conversion (5e Race) ) as a means of self defense. This staff/sling is barely taller than the creators but offers a variety of functions. The staff is topped with a sling on one end and a sharp spike on the other, and when spun in a special manner creates a high pitch noise. Any race may learn to wield and make a hoopak, but only the nimble fingers of the Kender can produce the hoopaks scream. Merchants may also be wary of wielders of the hoopak due to its reputation of ownership by the infamous kender.
Due to the oddity of the hoopaks design its been known to be used as a sling, short-staff, and spear depending on the situation.
