Abridged History of the 10th Age
Shield of Spell Absorpotion
These shields are almost all dwarf-make, as the secret to their creation continues to evade most mages. They are proof against magic to a greater or lesser degree, and can provide their wielder with various degrees of immunity. Most of these shields are unassuming, though there are some that have been studded with gems or runes. However, the process of preparing them does not REQUIRE the presence of flashy giltwork.
