This skill may only be purchased once.
This Skill allows you to use a Shield. Shield use in our game is unrealistic, as Shields are practically unbreakable. To compensate for this, Shield use is somewhat restricted. A player cannot intentionally make physical contact with an opponent with a Shield and may not Shield Bash; see Chapter IV Combat for details.
A character cannot use a Shield to perform weapon-based Skills such as Parry. If hit with an Effect that references a weapon (such as Shatter, Disarm, etc.) the Shield will not be affected. However, these Skills can intentionally Target a Shield instead.
