Unfortunately, I don’t don’t have a homicidal dwarf on hand to give me advice, but I believe one would tell me I made an error when I designed a scene. I’ll probably have my main character design a cane to remedy my problem. A dwarf would have better positioning than a regular sized adult for this murder, but the lack of reach concerns me.

I’ll hold off on this minor rewrite of the scene until I decide if I want to add specifics to the cane’s design.
