A light mace is a simple melee weapon, much like a small club made from metal.
A light mace is little more than a metal club with flanges, knobs, or ridges of metal placed symmetrically around the head. A light mace is slightly smaller than a short sword in length but about twice the weight, with much of the weight concentrated in the head. An average light mace costs 5gp and weighs 4lbs (1.8kg).
The mace is the natural development of the club and is made completely out of metal, making it a heavy but difficult to break weapon. This weapon is intended to be used one-handed and is simple enough for most character classes to use without any training. Mounted horsemen often use maces with slightly longer hafts to reach both mounted and unmounted opponents.
