Long Description

Scapula radiate like blades around a central core of iron.  Several split femurs and a rather nasty looking hand form a morbid mosaic along the plate.  The beat iron plate is marked with runes that flow like living metal.  The bones almost seem to be grown and not made.  A heavy aura of magic seems to cling to this shield giving it an eerie feeling.
Octarine light pulses around it like an evil heartbeat.
It has the hazy octarine sparkle of a magical talisman.

Despite the description, the shield from Dave is not enchanted. It can be enchanted the normal way, but you cannot tell which level it is because the 'evil heartbeat' line masks the normal enchanting line.

This talisman is not bonded, it can be bonded normally.

Appraises As

The ornate bone shield is about four feet long and about three feet wide. It is made of iron and looks like it could be held as a shield. It is in good condition.
