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

A shield is a piece of armour which can be carried by any species but felids and spriggans to provide some degree of blocking defense (SH). They benefit equally from both strength and dexterity, making them a versatile choice for many characters, but without a decent Shields skill, they carry significantly more penalties to accuracy, evasion and spellcasting than the lighter buckler.

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.
