Mace, flanged

Blunt, Military, German, Italian, Latin Europe

This is a more sophisticated type of mace designed so that shape and hardness cause injuries far beyond what the mass of the weapon could alone. These are very dangerous weapons, highly effective against both armoured and unarmoured opponents, typically a little lighter than a heavy mace and well balanced for combat. Better quality flanged maces were actually made of steel (modify hardness and price accordingly, damage 1-12). The flanges serve two purposes: they have the same striking area with less mass and their shape helps concentrate the force of the strike to crack open armour, shields, skulls etc. very efficiently.
