    A Cane for Selczek Gobayuik

    As I imagine it, one of the reasons Selczek Gobayuik is so disliked is partly because of his habit of constantly smoking the most obnoxiously bad-smelling pipeweed and Baklunish hashish he can find. The other is his carrying around a walking stick made of carved humanoid limb bones.

    The only catch is that I can't really decide what race Selczek's cane should come from. Human and demihuman bones, even whole arms or legs, are probably too short for Selczek's liking. So what kind of humanoid or giant would have limbs long enough that Selczek could comfortably use them as a cane?

    I'm torn between the forearm or femur bones of an ogre or a verbeeg. Even a hill giant might fit if you use 1E giant heights like I do (1E hill giants are 10 and a half feet tall compared to the 16 feet tall of 2E).

    Thoughts?

    A singular bone would probably be best from the standpoint of being sturdy enough to use as a cane, but imagine a lacquered amalgamation of halfling and gnome long bones and it would look even more grotesque.
