A large shield crafted of metal or wood. The shield is secured to the wrist with a strap and held by a handle and provides better protection than many smaller shield variants.
Trenched In. While holding this shield, if you did not move, attack, or cast a spell during your turn, at the end of your turn you may go into a defensive stance. You stay in this defensive stance until the start of your next turn, hiding yourself behind your shield. While in this stance, you are treated as having half cover.
Deflection. When you are the target of a ranged attack, as a reaction you may use your shield to partially deflect the blow. You gain a +2 bonus to your AC against the triggered attack.
