Help: Weapon morningstar.txt

MORNINGSTAR (bludgeon) ====================== 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 of production. The morning star traces its ancestry to the mace, which in turn traces its lineage back to the club. Hobgoblins, a race that takes great delight in inflicting pain, often use morning stars. Troglodytes use stone morning stars. Some skill(s) usable with the weapon: Battlecry, bludgeons, lure, pound and pulverize. See also: Blackjack, staff, jo, ice pick, whip, club, hammer, pick, cudgel, warhammer, mace, war mattock, battle mace, flail and maul.
