Only tribes that have not yet learned the use of metal use the sword-club. It consists of a truncheon with shards of flint or obsidian set into the opposite edges. The shards are very sharp, but brittle, and so require frequent replacement. The sword-club has the slight advantage in that a user can inflict bashing damage without using the “Pulling Blows” rule (see Exalted, p. 158).

Real-world examples of this weapon are macanas and maquahuitls used by Mesoamerican tribes including the Aztecs.

This weapon was converted by me from the RAW version in the Scroll of Kings to be compliant with the Armorium.
