Blunt Weapons

Club: Most clubs are stout, hardwood sticks, narrow at the grip and wider at the end. This simple weapon has been used since mankind first began using tools. Anyone can find a good stout piece of wood and swing it; hence the club's widespread use.

Mace: The mace is a direct descendant of the basic club, being a wooden shaft with a stone or iron head. The head design varies; some being flanged, and others having pyramidal knobs.

Quarterstaff: The quarterstaff is a length of wood ranging six to nine feet in length. High quality staves are made of stout oak and are shod with metal at both ends. The quarterstaff is wielded with both hands.

Warhammer: The warhammer is consists of a wooden or metal shaft capped with a metal head. The head is usually a block, a cylinder, or a wedge with a flat or slightly rounded face. The heft of the head makes the hammer ideal for swinging and crushing through armors of all types.
