Morning stars (also "morningstar") were a simple type of one-handed melee weapon.
Morningstars were very similar to a spiked club, but with refinements. Their shafts were usually made of wood and longer than a heavy mace. Their heads were typically round and covered in metal set. Around twenty spikes were set into this metal, radiating like a star, with the biggest spike extending straight from the top..
Morningstar were typically wielded one-handed and did both bludgeoning and piercing damage. It was a simple weapon that did not require any training for most classes.

- The gods Hruggek and Memnor were known to consider morningstars their favored weapon.
