Hammers and Mallets

Hammers and mallets are another class of weapons that originally started out as tools. Just like with axes, it was the dwarves who first started making hammers and mallets specifically for combat. They have since become a favorite weapon for those who want to cause the most damage.

Hammers and mallets are bludgeoning weapons that do bashing damage and make use of bashing attack skills. Those with the Weapons Mastery in Bashing Weapons ability, your attacks will cause bashing damage.

  • Against an armored target you will cause Fatigue if you crit, with Fatigue lasting lasting 4 rounds.
  • If the target is not armored, Minor Broken Bones and Fatigue apply if you crit.
  • You can make a strength check to daze the target for 1d3 rounds.

1. War Hammer

War Hammers are the only hammers specifically made for combat. Because of this, they are the only hammers that are found in most weapon shops. The war hammer consists of a handle and a head. The length of the handle may vary, but are roughly equivalent to that of a mace. Unlike traditional hammers, war hammers only bear one single face and no opposing claw, though there are enhancements available to add a claw. War Hammers may be dual wielded by dwarves, large races, and those with a strength greater than 35. For all others, war hammers can not be dual wielded. They can be equipped single handed or as a two-handed weapon.

2. Mallets

Mallets got their start as a tool and are still used as such by carpenters. However, their large size has also made them a decent weapon. Mallets are always made of wood, which makes them lighter than some weapons and flammable. Mallets may be dual wielded by dwarves, large races, and those with a strength greater than 25. For all others, mallets can not be dual wielded. They can be equipped single handed or as a two-handed weapon.

3. Marteldefer

More accurately spelled Martel-de-Fer, the Marteldefer is the king of all mallet and hammer based weapons. The Marteldefer incorporates the greater range of the mallet as well as the larger head design while being made of metal like a hammer and having a opposing face pike. The marteldefer can use both piercing and bashing attacks, depending upon the side attacked with and often times is outfitted with a thrusting point. Due to its immense size and weight, the marteldefer cannot be dual wielded and must be treated as a two handed weapon to all but the largest of the orc races and dragonians. Furthermore, marteldefers cannot be wielded by anyone with a strength less than 40
