The simplicity of the heraldic design on this shield leads one to believe it was created either by barbarians or goblins. It is made of sturdy materials and should stand up reasonably well in combat.

This shield is made of wood framed by iron. It is somewhat heavy for its size, but it should see you through a battle safely--as long as you're not backstabbed.

These shields were forged by the Phynaxian empire during its brief rise to power on the steppes of southern Erathia (790-864). They are made of stalt, a metal that takes well to enchantment, and contributed heavily to Phynaxian military might. Unfortunately, very little of the metal could be mined, and Phynaxia fell in 864 A.S. to an Elvish offensive.

These rare shields were turned out by the hundreds with the aid of the Heavenly Forges to combat rebel forces in the endless string of skirmishes and supply raids that tested (and finally overcame) the Governor's forces in the first century A.S. As with all such equipment, it is light, tough, and is capable of holding the most powerful enchantments.

Valeria

20 000 gold
Shielding, +30 accuracy
Commissioned by King David IV of Erathia during the Timber Wars, Valeria not only shields the user from normal blows, but helps intercept many incoming arrows by magically focusing the wielder's attention on the flight of the missile. The same enchantment that makes the shielding effect possible also increases the wielder's accuracy enormously.
