An advancement of its poor cousin, the club, the mace has seen service in Britannia since before the coming of Mondain. Favored by priests of all sorts, this heavy bludgeoning weapon can cause a foe's bones to splinter and break -- thus making it particularly useful for fighting certain types of Undead monsters, such as skeletons. Further development of the mace resulted in the morning star.
Respected for its effectiveness and relatively cheap cost, it is a weapon likely to be used for ages to come. According to Vetron's Guide to Weapons and Armour, the mace has a "5" effectiveness rating.
Upon the 11/2 inch thick oaken stem of the Britannian mace rests a globe of iron studded with knobs. The impact of this weapon has been known to shatter the skulls of enemies outright. A favorite among the druids.
