|The Morning Star|
The humble Club is a one-handed version of the Mace. While it is a crude weapon, it requires no training to use and is a subtle in that it can be worn publicly without arousing suspicion. Fighters who choose to wield a Club can utilize their Weapon Proficiencies in Maces with them.

Maces are known in three forms within the Mother Empire: the Flanged Mace, the Morning Star and the Bantu Head Mace or Great Club.
|The Flanged Mace|
The Morning Star is similar to the Flanged Mace, but has a longer haft topped with a heavy ball studded with spikes. It is much more capable of punching through its target's defenses though it lacks some of the hitting power of the Flanged Mace.

The simple Clubs have several standard variations. The Baton is a standard issue weapon used by Guardsmen. The Guard will resort to these weapons first if having to take down a criminal or other no-good-doer -- only resorting to their Dirks and Pistol-Crossbows if met with lethal force. Most other Clubs are either Heavy Clubs or Simple Clubs, and can vary a great deal in their quality. Any sort of improvised weapon is functionally a Heavy or Simple Club, but will become useless after seeing a few combats!
