Mace (20): 7d+13 crushing. Reach 2.
Obscuring Mist (3/day): This is Obscure (Vision) 10 in a cloud of mist in a 5-hex radius in all directions. The full Obscure (Vision) 10 only happens in the middle hex; each hex away lowers the Obscure (Vision) by 2, so there is Obscure (Vision) 8 in the ring one hex away, Obscure (Vision) 6 in the ring two hexes away, Obscure (Vision) 6 in the ring three hexes away, Obscure (Vision) four in the ring 4 hexes away, and Obscure (Vision) 2 in the ring five hexes away. Wind over 10 miles per hour will blow away the mist in 20 seconds, while wind over 20 miles per hour blows away the mist in 5 seconds; otherwise, the mist lasts an hour. This doesn’t work underwater. Acc 3, Range 10.
Thrown Rock (13): 4d+1 crushing. This is an 80 lb. rock. Range 37.
