|Buckler - The lightest style of shield, favored by quick fighters. It has a convex shape designed to ward off blows, allowing for a swift counterattack. Due to its small size, the buckler is useless in unskilled hands.
|Cavalry Shield - A medium-weight oval shield mostly used by cavalry and auxiliary troops. Oval shields could be found everywhere, from Kemet to Ashkaan. They offer good defence and reasonable mobility.
|Infantry Shield - A larger, rectangular shield with a slightly curved profile, this piece was designed for slowly advancing legionnaires who would utilize group defensive formations like the famous "turtle". It may be less useful to a lone fighter.
|Tower Shield - A heavy rectangular shield with a slightly curved profile, the tower shield provides unparalleled protection for a stationary unit, but is cumbersome and unwieldy, severely taxing its owner's mobility and response time.
