A small piece of wood and metal, to be strapped on one arm for defence. It is somewhat cumbersome to wear, and, without a little training, slightly slows the rate at which a warrior attacks.

Bucklers are the smallest kind of shield. Although they offer significantly less defense than the larger shields, the attack and spellcasting penalties they cause are negligible. You can also improve their effectiveness by raising your Shields skill, by improving your dexterity, or by enchanting them. Bucklers are the only shields that spriggans can wield, but ogres and trolls find them too small to handle.

They can be found with the following egos:

Egos such as cold and fire resistance are fairly rare, usually only found in mini branches such as the Volcano or through a scroll of acquirement.
