1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

Wizards often use this weapon which doubles as a spellbook. The tome is larger than normal (though it holds no more than a common spellbook) and heavy, wrapped in toughened leathers and brass bindings and supports. It can be used as a bludgeoning weapon, balanced just right to be swung around like a club. Likewise it can be enchanted as a weapon. It has enough metal in it to count as the damaging part of the weapon, and can have adamantine and the like added to it.

See Blessed Battle Book for its wondrous item based magic weapon.
