Description

Wildly driven spears and knives glanced from his helmet or the shield on his left arm, while his broadsword cleft flesh and bone, split skulls, scattered brains and spilled entrails into the bloody dust.
~ The Snout in the Dark

Bones lashed to a wooden frame make for an intimidating defensive wall. Unfortunately, the brittle nature of bone means that intimidation is the strongest element of this shield. A few blows and it will shatter and leave the wielder vulnerable.

Most warriors prefer to carry a shield into battle if there is one available. The best blow is the one that misses, but the second best blow is the one that you block.

Darfari cannibals often craft this type of shield from the leftover bones in their sacrifice pits. The smell of charred flesh still clings to the bones.
