(Current Rule)

The Shield of Deflection
The Shield of Deflection was forged a thousand years ago from the scales of the Dragyn of Sarum. The Shield of Deflection is a 24”round shield that is indestructible. Any character that can use a shield of that type and size may use the Shield of Deflection. The Shield cannot be destroyed by any means including shield-breaking weapons, other Relics, such as the Mace of Disruption, spells, or siege weapons, including catapult balls and ballista bolts.
It should be noted that while the Shield is indestructible, it does not prevent area of effect damage to the user. For example, if a Mage’s Fireball hits the Shield, the Shield is not destroyed, but user of the Shield is still mortally wounded as per the radius effect of the Spell. The Shield’s properties may be used as often as necessary and it does not need to be recharged.
