| An enormous metal war club, of great cumbrousness.
"There will arise one named Feridoun, who shall inherit thy throne and reverse thy fortunes, and strike thee down with a cow-headed mace."
-Firdausi, _Shahnameh_. ca. 1000 A.D.
trans. Helen Zimmern, 1883.
This weapon falls into the 'Maces & Flails' category. It is a two handed weapon, and it is best used by the strong.
The great mace is the largest and heaviest weapon in the Maces & Flails category that most species can wield. While it's less powerful than a triple sword and cannot cleave like an executioner's axe, it can still deal heavy damage and reaches its minimum delay at a lower skill level. Ogres and trolls who plan to wield two-handed weapons will want a giant spiked club, but this is a good endgame weapon for more average-sized Maces & Flails users.
