Kender
Kender are a small race similar to halflings.Known to exist only on the world of Krynn—the DRAGONLANCE setting—kender are utterly fearless, insatiably curious, and unstoppably mobile and independent. They pick up anything that is not nailed down, and kender with claw hammers will get those things as well.Traits

motivations and characteristics of other races, and you can use this insight to infuriate them. As an action, you can unleash a verbal barrage of sarcasm, insults, and crude comments against a creature. Make a Charisma (Performance) check contested by the target’s Wisdom (Insight) check. You fail the contest if the target can’t understand you.If you win the contest, the target must use its next action to attack only you.

your Taunt for 24 hours.

Kender Pockets: Kender constantly pick
things up and pocket them, and then often forget about them. If you find yourself in need of a piece of nonmagical equipment, there is a 25 percent chance you have it. Roll a d4. If you roll a 4, you find the item in your pocket, pack, or pouch. If you roll anything else, you don’t have such an item on you, and you can’t search again for the same item until you’ve spent at least oneday in a town or city. Rummaging through your pouches, pack, and pockets in this way takes 1 minute.

Weapon Proficiency:
Kenders treat all Kender Weapon as simple weapons, male Kenders are always proficient with the hoopak while female Kenders are proficient with whippik

Starting Gear: Kender mAle will have a hoopak as part of his starting gear while females have whippik

Common and Kenderspeak. (Kenderspeak is a language unique to the DRAGONLANCE setting. If you are playing a kender in a different setting,check with your DM.)

Kender Weapon

Hoopak
The hoopak is the most common of kender tools. This 5ft., ironwood staff has a short spike attached to its tip, which doubles as a spear or bo stick and inflicts the first damage value listed in the above chart for both. The staff's other end is forked and laced with gut. A stone may be flung by either planting the blade end of the hoopak in the earth and bending the staff back to sling the stone, or whirling the hoopak overhead as a traditional sling-staff. This tool acts like a bullroar when whirled in the air, creating a low thrumming sound. Other uses include prying with the blade, and picking apples with the gut.
Type:Martial Melee
Weight: 5lbs.
Price: 50 GP
Damage:1d4 piercing or bludgeon /range:1d4 bludgeon
Special:Range(30/120), Versatile(d6), Ammunition, two handed when use as range weapon , tiny ,Finesse

Whippik
The whippik is a thin wand of ironwood that holds a short length of looped catgut on its end. It looks much like a riding whip. The whippik is the most popular tool among female kender. Short darts may be fired from this whip bow. The whippik also performs various functions such as snaring game, fishing, and strumming as a stringed instrument.

Damage:1d4 slashing/range:1d4 piercing

Chapak
The chapak is a combination hand axe and slingshot. Its single-bladed axe head rests on a hollow haft of ironwood. The back of the axe blade forms two prongs that support a cat-gut slingshot. The hollow haft has fingerholes drilled along its length and can be played as a flute if the end plugs are removed. Other uses of this tool include splitting wood, prying with the butt-end, snorkeling (with holes corked), shooting as a blowgun (with holes corked), and grappling (with a spidersilk rope).

Polpak
The polpak is a 6 ft. staff that sports a scimitar blade. Triggering a catch and giving the blade a half-turn releases it so that it can function as a scimitar. The blade has one serrated edge and doubles as a saw or pruner. The crosspiece for the sword is a double recurved crescent. Iron rings appear around the shaft at 1 foot increments to aid in gripping and climbing. A dozen caltrops are laced on a rod in the crosspiece. Typical uses include spearfishing with the blade, and playing as a musical saw.

Sithak
The sithak (swordbow) was originally a yoke used for carrying water in buckets. Now, its ends bear two blades, allowing it to serve as a double scythe. A recurving hook rests beneath each blade. A bowstring laced across the yoke allows short field-arrows to fire through a hole in the haft. Other uses include harvesting crops, furrowing ground, slashing enemies, and strumming as a stringed instrument.

Price:80gp

Battak
The battak is a walking stick with a variety of items fastened along its length. It is the favorite tool of young kender. Shaped like a miniature studded club, this tool sports a small metal wedge at its tapered end and studs around the wide end. A wooden plug that fits into the broad tip unscrews and inverts to bear a short knife blade. The nether chamber that holds this club also stores sling bullets, which may be batted at one's target with great force.

Bells, chimes, and whistles fasten along the club, producing music and making a fearsome jangle in battle. Other uses for this tool include climbing by wedging it in the ground (advantage climbing checks), creating percussive music.

Hachak
The hachak is heaviest of the kender tools and is used by woodcutters. On one end of its 6 ft. segmented pole rests a hammer, spike, and piercing beak. The other end of the pole holds a broad axe backed by a hammer head and a saw blade. Metal rings circle the shaft at 1 foot intervals along its length. The shaft itself may be separated into three sections if necessary. Just below the axe blade, a sheepskin wrap can store 6 throwing darts. The hammer and beak can be used as weapons. Other uses include hammering nails, pruning trees, planing wood, and playing as a chime by hammering on the blades.

Sashik
The sashik is a beaded, weighted sash-of laced rope. Worn across one shoulder, the sashik bears weighted pouches on one end, making an excellent flail. Two dozen large wooden beads that line one edge of the sashik can be pulled loose and thrown. The mesh of the sash is coarse and netlike. Other uses include scourging by attaching hooks (1 piercing damage on per escape attempt), entangling enemies, fishing as with a net, and playing as a xylophone.
Type: Martial Melee
Weight:6 lbs.
Price:120gp
Damage:1d4 bludgeon

Bolik
The bollik is a webbed rope belt worn about the waist on a leather sash and buckle. The bollik hangs from a series of quickrelease loops. On one end of the bollik, three weighted balls of leather hang on short strands of rope, forming a bola, but typically used as a flail. When the bollik is worn, these bola balls are tied to the large metal buckle. The bollik can be tugged free with a simple snapping motion and can be relaced in two rounds. Other uses include using as a bola, threshing grain, grappling walls (advantage to climb check) storing items in pockets of leather strap, and playing as a wind thrummer.

Dealing 5 slashing damage to the net (AC 10) also frees the creature without harming it, ending the effect and destroying the net. When you use an action, Bonus Action, or Reaction to Attack with a net, you can make only one Attack regardless of the number of attacks you can normally make.

Kender need to be proficient, or have a convenient way to become proficient, with Sleight of Hand, thieves tools, and stealth.

I would alter Taunt not to force an attack, but to simply inflict disadvantage.

Special:Range(30/120), Versatile(d6), Ammunition, two handed when use as range weapon , tiny ,Finesse

50gp looks like a whole heck of a lot, unless you're talking gold on Krynn. I'd also be inclined to note that the melee damage could be piercing OR bludgeoning. And I'd be inclined to make it not Versatile, simply two-handed... a medium weapon for a Small people.



Whippik
The whippik is a thin wand of ironwood that holds a short length of looped catgut on its end. It looks much like a riding whip. The whippik is the most popular tool among female kender. Short darts may be fired from this whip bow. The whippik also performs various functions such as snaring game, fishing, and strumming as a stringed instrument.

Special:Range(30/120) , Reach, Tiny, Finesse, Ammunition, two handed when use as range weapon


Again, price is REALLY high. In fact, that seems to be the ongoing theme... the price is too high, and I don't think these are necessarily Tiny weapons... there's no reason someone cannot use a hoopak as a club... I mean, it's even described as a 5 foot shaft of wood.

But, really, the hoopak is, for all intents and purposes, a staff sling that is culturally significant to the kender. They've modded it a little (the point on the end), but other than that, it's just a staff-sling that works as a club in a pinch.

I never say a staff sling use like that normally hoopaks are quite weird in shape specially the why.shape tip as I said it could be use as weapon but not as convenient as those dedicated melee weapons
