Armor Description


This small metal shield is strapped to your forearm, allowing you to wear it and still use your hand. You can use a bow or crossbow without penalty. You can also use an off-hand weapon, but you suffer a -1 penalty on attack rolls because of the extra weight on your arm. This penalty stacks with those for fighting with your off hand and, if appropriate, for fighting with two weapons. In any case, if you use a weapon in your off-hand, you don't get the buckler's AC bonus for the rest of the round. You can't effectively bash someone with a buckler.
