Shields were a type of armor used on Toril.


Shield were usually made from wood or metal and were used by combatants to gain extra protection. Shields were carried in one hand.[6] Shields were usually strapped to the arm that carried them. Smaller shields could be used without compromising the use of both hands.[7] Shields could be used in attacks to bash or push opponents. Some shields had spikes attached to them so that they could be more devastating when used as a weapon.[8]
