A scourge is a military one-handed melee weapon in the flail weapon group.[AV:9]

A scourge is an off-hand weapon. A character can use a scourge to make attacks even while holding another one-handed weapon in the other hand, and can use the other one-handed weapon to make attacks even if it isn't an off-hand weapon.

Ardents, avengers, barbarians, battleminds, fighters, paladins, rangers, wardens, and warlords are proficient with all military melee weapons, including the scourge.

Other classes do not have proficiency with the scourge as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
