Tales from the Inner Sea
The Shield of Biting
A slightly oval Target shield made of wood and metal, with a central boss cast in steel in the shape of a roaring lion.
This shield has 18 AP’s, but also has a cunningly designed boss in the shape of a stylised roaring lions head. The jaws of the lion move from time to time, and any object that finds itself between the jaws (whether metal or organic) will receive a powerful bite. In game terms if the user performs a special success, it does 3d6 damage to the attacking weapon with no armour protecting. If a critical success is done, the parried weapon is destroyed.
Apparently created by Dwarvish magic and technical skill, this shield is a formidable defensive item in its own right. No more than that is known of its past for now.
