Clubs were blunt weapons used by a variety of species.
Description[edit | edit source]
Clubs were simple weapons often made of wood. They were swung at enemies to cause damage—they could even kill if swung hard enough.
A variety of club was the baton, which was used by police forces for various purposes including crowd control. Some species had their own traditional clubs. A Thogk was a traditional Gamorrean club which literally translated to "log with a spike in it" in Gamorrese. The Icehead club was a wooden bludgeon used by members of the Icehead species.
History[edit | edit source]
The Unwashed, a subspecies of the Anointed People, commonly carried a club. During the time of the Galactic Empire, the Anointed People would participate in traditional mock battles using only clubs which could do little damage against the strong-boned species.
Clubs were used by two species native to the Forest Moon of Endor, namely the Duloks and the Ewoks. Gorneesh, the king of a tribe of Duloks on Endor during the time of the Galactic Civil War, wielded a very large club. During the Battle of Endor, the Ewoks used clubs, hatchets, and arrows against stormtroopers.
The club was also used by Noghri warrior Cakhmaim, who viewed it as his favorite weapon. A warrior of the Cilare species named Arbeloa was able to to defeat multiple Yuuzhan Vong armed only with a club.
