      >instantly regenerating impact grenade
      that just sounds dangerous for everyone involved, I'd suggest a omni directional impact triggered explosively formed projectile.
      like c'mon the concussion is going to cause some problems with the wielder, better make sure the target is dead

        Wear a magic set of armor that negates explosive damage. Plus would be fun to play around with the rolls for a good risk v reward or make it a cursed item.

      where does it get the mass for its explosive payload if it just explodes everything outwards

    -a tattooed shrunken head with extreme piercings
    -a cube covered with magical runes and with a different symbol each face, roll to see which hits and has special effects
    -the pommel of some long-lost great mythical sword
    -a petrified will-o-wisp
    -a huge scarab beetle
    -a small vial or crystal containing some mythical power trapped within, wrapped in metal to protect it; this allows some of the power to come out but also risks breaking the vial, releasing its contents to some catastrophic end.
    -If the wielder is evil, then some object with significance to the campaign, like the armor or weapon of a fallen character or important NPC, crudely hammered into a ball for the sole purpose of attacking the enemy with something important to them
    -beast or monster heads each with a different magical effect. i.e. the serpent's head conveys poison, the ram's head knocks the target down, the dragon's head adds fire damage, the bird's beak ignores armor, etc.
    -a small golem or other construct (or creature) which can hide by pretending to be a simple ball on the chain, but which is capable of leaping off the chain and acting independently in combat
    -raw chunks of rare and special metals or minerals
    -mummified hands and feet
    -the half-melted fused helmet of some unfortunate hero who died to dragon's fire, still containing his crushed head, cooked and preserved by the heat
    -the clapper from the bell of an important church (or evil temple)
    -another idea if the wielder is evil: the head looks like, or might actually be, a fetus while the chain mimics an umbilical cord.
    -individual teeth, claws, or bones from some huge beast

      A magical flail that, if dropped or disarmed, the head unfurls into a tiny golem that wields the handle as a club is a great idea.

        >that wields the handle as a club is a great idea.
        I was thinking more like "latches onto the enemy's face and tries to claw his eyes out" while the wielder still retains the handle, but I like your idea a lot!

    I always thought the charm of a mace was no matter what you're wearing it's going to break under it getting it, If you're expecting to trade blows and have like a gambeson, chainmail gambonson faking out makes sense since you can basically break whatever is under a plate. I mean if you're gonna frick around and pretend it's nunchucks or whatever you might as well have a horse and fricking trample them and try to fight your way out of your horse being killed. Like an axe or something that makes mother frickers back off. It'd be a cool alternative for a lance if you broke it possibly. I'd just go for an axe and stuff myself but I'm not alive because I go axe beserker in shit situations like that even though it's my initial impulse.

      In my opinion the best solution for this is for the game to keep track of different types of damage. In my fantasy games I do Piercing, Slashing, and Crushing. Different weapons do different types of damage--a mace or club is Crushing, stabbing with a dagger is Piercing, Slashing with a saber is..well...slashing. Different kinds of armor would have different statistics vs. these damage types. Something like a chain shirt would have zero protection vs. Crushing.
