Base Shields

Source Core Rulebook pg. 277 2.0
A shield can increase your character’s defense beyond the protection their armor provides. Your character must be wielding a shield in one hand to make use of it, and it grants its bonus to AC only if they use an action to Raise a Shield. This action grants the shield’s bonus to AC as a circumstance bonus until their next turn starts. A shield’s Speed penalty applies whenever your character is holding the shield, whether they have raised it or not.

Filter Use These filters are still being tested and do not currently function properly on Mobile (Desktop View will work). Please use the Contact Us field on the main menu to report any issues.

You can apply filters, sort by, or hide columns by right-clicking them on a PC, or pressing ≡ on mobile. Your column order and visibility preferences will be kept after you switch pages.
All columns should function as the filters describe, with the following exceptions:
  • 'Between' Function: To use the 'between' function on any number column, separate each number with a space and then select the 'between' option (eg: '4 10', minus the quotations would get all results between 4 and 10).
  • 'NULL' or 'Empty' Results: Set filter 'Is Empty'. This will find results where we show an emdash — (Exception: Bulk is -1)
  • Bulk: Numbers Only. -1 = None, 0 = Light, 1+ = Normal
  • PFS Legality: Numbers Only. 0 = No PFS Ruling; 1 = Standard; 2 = Limited; 3 = Restricted
  • Price: Numbers Only. 1 cp = 0.1; 1 sp = 1; 1 gp = 10
  • Traits: Use 'Contains' for one Trait at a time. Does not support multiple Traits yet.

For increased filtering power, click the 'Export to CSV' button in the top-right of the grid and further filter the data in Excel or a similar medium.
