A heavy mace is essentially an iron (or bronze) club. Historically maces were a sign of high authority in numerous cultures, perhaps due to their effectiveness against armour. A kings scepter is essentially a fancy mace. Even a ‘heavy’ mace is not extremely heavy (usually 3-4 lbs), and is balanced for fighting, relying on hardness and density to cause injuries rather than sheer weight. Though not a nimble weapon, a mace can knock out or stun armoured opponents fairly easily. The compact mass of a mace makes it useful in defence as well as offence.
