Scourge

The scourge is a multi-tailed whip, each tail being about 6 to 12 inches in length. The number of tails vary, but the most common is 9 (this variety is also known as a “cat-o’-nine-tails”).

Benefit: Like the whip, the scourge does nonlethal damage, but unlike the whip a scourge does not have reach, and cannot be used for disarm or trip maneuvers. The scourge is commonly used to mete out punishment in military units, aboard sailing vessels and by local governments.

Scourge, Barbed: A barbed scourge is a scourge with sharp steel, wooden or glass barbs tied into the leather tails. A barbed scourge deals lethal damage.
