Pu-Da

By:

Pu-Da are called Clubs in the rest of the world. Among the Ankorillian weaponry are different types of clubs for use in close combat.

Full Item Description
Among the Ankorillian weaponry are different types of clubs for use in close combat. Those made entirely of wood are either smooth or rough headed.

Also used are Newa with stone heads attached to wooden handles. They are short, from 9 to 18 inches long, except for one made of whalebone which is 19.5 inches in length and rather heavy. 

Ankorillians heavy clubs were favored. This is because ease of wielding and faster speed of use, in hand to hand fighting, were determining factors. The exception to this, however, was the club used by the public executioner, which was much longer and very heavy (also of whalebone).

History
People have been hitting people with large things since the begining. These are clubs adapted from the environment.

Magic/Cursed Properties

I understand this is part of a world you're making... but as a stand alone it is somewhat weak. It's a good description and all, it's just... well.. it's a club. :)

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
