Treasures of the Deep
The accompanying table provides game system information for shields. The following details are provided:
Shield Bonus: If you are carrying a shield, you get the listed bonus to your Defense. This helps you avoid getting hit in the first place. You need proper training to get the most out of shields, however. If you do not have the Weapon and Shield Talent, the maximum Defense bonus you will receive from a shield is +1. In other words, you must have the talent to get any benefit from using a medium or heavy shield.
|Shield Type||Shield Bonus||Cost|
|Light Shield||+1||15 sp|
|Medium Shield||+2||30 sp|
|Heavy Shield||+3||60 sp|
