Coup Stick

A flexible curved club, often decorated for battles past.

weapon (melee)

The coup stick is treated like a club in all respects except that it can deal subdual damage without incurring the usual -4 penalty to attack roll if the wielder chooses.


It is a point of pride amongst the Paynims to touch your enemy in combat without causing permanent harm to them, especially while risking harm yourself. The Paynim have created a specialized tool for this called the coup stick. Each time the wielder successfully counts coup they notch or otherwise decorate their coup stick to keep score. The more decorations the greater the personal honor.
