Long Description

You've seen some weird inventions in your time, but this one really takes the cake for stupid creations. You can't see any trademark but you just know that it's got to be a Johnson job. This shield consists of a small round moat-like affair, with a tiny treadmill-run water mill inside which a mouse-sized imp is imprisoned. The moat is full of water, and the imp treadmill makes the water run around the circle. Apparently it's meant to be a kind of shield against zombies, who supposedly can't cross running water. It is hellishly heavy and looks as though it would fall apart with one good thwack.

Appraises As

The portable running water shield is about two and a half feet long and about two feet wide. It is made of copper and looks like it could be held as a shield.
