A mace by any other name

We cannot be both the world's leading champion of peace and the world's leading supplier of the weapons of war
- Jimmy Carter

When is a mace not a mace? When you add spikes to it and it becomes a morningstar.

You see, I made a mace. Only I made it with spikes. And the more I thought about it the more I decided that it was more like a morningstar. I posed the question to some NWN2 mates and the consensus was: Mace + Spikes = Morningstar. No big deal. I reused the mesh and the texture and replaced the spikes with knobs to make a mace as well. The mace was then scaled into a warmace, making three weapons for the price of one.

The mace/morningstar were a part of the v1.30 update for the
BTH Weapon Pack which added 16 weapons to the pack. The update also includes the weapons I made for the Shattered Dreams project. I haven't heard anything from the project leaders for a number of months and I assume the project has been abandoned. In any case, it's better to release the models to the community than have them sitting around idle on my hard drive.

And so the BTH Model Clearance Sale continues. Next on the agenda is a final update to my Shield Pack.

I'm glad to see you still working on NWN2 stuff! I'm going to be including your weapons and shields into my current module project.

It's great that my work is being used.

Let me know if you need anything specific and I'll see what I can do.
