A brooch with an intricate inlaid design, providing a range of magical protections. Back in the good old days, every adventurer had one of these handy devices. That, and a pony.

Desirability

The brooch of Shielding is basically an amulet of guardian spirit that also happens to provide some SH value. Like other amulets of guardian spirit, it is somewhat risky for spellcasters to use. Characters that weren't going to use their MP anyway will find it better than nothing, especially if they're already using a shield or other source of SH. Still, you might prefer some other artefact amulet with resistances or other properties.

The brooch of Shielding is the shield equivalent of the rings of the Tortoise and Hare.
