Shield, HideThis tall, oval shield is made of animal hide stretched tightly over a wood or bone framework and reinforced with strips of hide. It is relatively lightweight while still providing cover as a tower shield does. By giving up your attacks for the round, you gain total cover. The shield does not, however, provide cover against targeted spells; a spellcaster can target the shield. Since it is made of lighter material than a tower shield, you take only a -1 penalty on attack rolls while wielding a hide shield in combat. You cannot bash with a hide shield, nor can you use your shield hand for anything else.
