Shield, Tower, SteelThis massive steel shield is nearly as tall as the wielder. Basically, it is a portable wall meant to provide cover. It can provide up to total cover, depending on how far you come out from behind it. A tower shield, however, does not provide cover against targeted spells; a spellcaster can cast a spell on you by targeting the shield you are holding. You cannot bash with a tower shield. Characters proficient with the normal (wooden) tower shield are also automatically proficient with the steel tower shield.
