Weight: ~6 kg
Rank(s): 1st row
The morning star is a wooden shaft topped with a metal
head made up of a spiked iron sheath. Morning stars have an
overall length of about four feet. Some such weapons have a round,
oval, or cylindrical shaped head studded with spikes. Extending
from most morning star heads, regardless of design, is a long
point for thrusting.
The weapon is designed to allow the wielder to inflict
greater damage with his swing. The weighted, spiked head adds to
this ability significantly.
Long-handled morning stars are used by foot soldiers,
while the short-handled versions are used by horsemen. It is a
very popular weapon due to its effectiveness and its simplicity
The morning star traces its ancestry to the mace, which
in turn traces its lineage back to the club.

pain, often use morning stars. Troglodytes use stone morning stars.
Some skill(s) usable with the weapon:
Battlecry, bludgeons, lure, pound and pulverize.
Blackjack, staff, jo, ice pick, whip, club, hammer, pick,
cudgel, warhammer, mace, war mattock, battle mace,
