This is a weapon data page for Action.
|Heroic Action Role-Play|
One-handed ancient melee weapon
Usually round, a small shield is between 0.2 and 0.5 meters in diameter and often has a spike or knob in the center. So small that it must be used to parry actively, not just take cover behind. Delivers a surprisingly nasty punch. Early shields are made of wicker, wood, or turtle shells, later ones of metal. A shield is often destroyed as the result of a damage setback.
