A mace is a simple bludgeoning weapon resembling a metal club. The haft can be of varying lengths and thicknesses, but for game purposes maces come in two sizes, the light mace and the heavy mace. Both are intended to be used in one hand. The striking head of the mace is symmetrically arrayed with flanges, knobs, or high ridges designed to inflict damage on an armored opponent. Maces can also fulfill a ceremonial role, being used or wielded by clerics or those in positions of power.
