This short-hafted mace is perhaps two feet long, made of high quality steel and polished to a mirrored shine. The haft itself is made of well-varnished biinwood, and connects to the spherical head via two spirals of metal that wrap around the haft, fashioned to look like arms with hands on the ends.

The head sports no spikes or other protuberances save one: a soft, triangular bump that looks remarkably like a nose.

Draping down from just below the mace's head is a tiny cloak of deep violet linen and lined with gold thread, obviously of the highest quality. It is marred with flecks of deep crimson over its entirety.

Legend has it that the infamous bandit Gilgen Mosswood used this mace in connection with many of his carriage robberies. He was said to have taken it into the carriage as he demanded the occupants' money and jewelery.

If one of the victims refused, Gilgen would turn towards the Count and carry on a conversation with it, usually expressing his regret that he'd be forced to use the Count, and how much he would hate having to do some graphically unpleasant thing to the victim once the Count knocked them unconscious.

The Count (played by Gilgen in a falsetto) was usually much more eager and explicit. This routine often inspired the would-be tough guys to part with their loot.

For those that continued to refuse, Gilgen almost unfailingly carried out what he threatened earlier. This served to paint Gilgen as a lunatic that couldn't be bargained with, which only seemed to help his criminal exploits.
