Rokugan: Shadow Rising
Raiu no Shirudo (Shield of Storms)
This is a small circular shield from the Ivory Kingdoms. It looks very old.
The dhal is eight inches in diameter and is designed to rest on the knuckles of the left hand. Alternatively, it can also be slipped down the arm to allow the use of a weapon in that hand. It is possible that the shield also awakened.
Give a bonus equal to your REFLEXES to your TN to be hit by melee weapons and a DAMAGE REDUCTION of 1. Alternatively, using a weapon in that hand just imparts the DAMAGE REDUCTION.
