A mace with a short chain connecting the head to the haft.
This weapon falls into the 'Maces & Flails' category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the strong.

The flail is a common, moderately powerful one-handed weapon, a step up from a mace. Although it's a little less powerful than a morningstar, it's faster and more accurate, making it a fair choice for the early game. Still, upgrading it as soon as possible is advisable.
