A large piece of wood and metal, to be strapped on one arm for defence. It is very cumbersome to wear, and, without a great deal of training, greatly slows the rate at which a warrior attacks.

The largest of the shields, large shields provide high SH but require a high Shields skill to avoid seeing significant attack penalties. They are most useful to characters with high strength. They are too large for spriggans, halflings, or kobolds to use at all, but ogres, trolls, nagas, centaurs, and formicids find them relatively comfortable to use.

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.
