This weapon falls into the 'Maces & Flails' category. It is a two handed weapon, and it is best used by the strong.
The giant club is an inelegant but devastating weapon, dealing massive damage but requiring the sheer size of an ogre or troll to wield at all, and significant weapon skill to wield effectively. They are fairly common, as ogres often carry them and can be encountered in the early Dungeon. However, they are inferior to giant spiked clubs, so you may want to save any scrolls of enchant weapon for one of those. They are never found branded normally, but Okawaru and Trog may gift you branded or randart ones.
