This vital piece of equipment is not to be overlooked or undervalued. Whatever item your particular hero or heroine chooses to use as their shield- and there is a plethora of options to be chosen from- is one of their few safety measures. Heros and heroines alike are both notoriously stupid, especially in combat. Isn't it nice to know that as long as your hero has some kind of a shield they won't be entirely vulnerable and helpless in a fight? Shields do not by any means block every enemy attack. Rather they deflect a few moves from the enemy onslaught. Shields are an item who's purpose is defensive, although some more "Resourceful" heroes have been seen using their shields to bludgeon an enemy brutally. Do not be mistaken, shields are not just for cowards. They are just as important in combat as swords and other items like armor. Having a shield provides at least some protection from the wide variety of monsters and challenges that your hero or heroine faces on a daily basis. Foolish is the hero who goes into battle without a shield
