Long Description

This is a small, round shield of metal.  It is very tough, and weighs a fair bit.  On the other hand, it will do a much better job than a wooden shield.

There is a variant from the AM mansion which looks different but has the same attributes:

The shield is made of finely crafted dwarven steel, and has a mountain embossed on it.

Appraises As

The small metal shield is about a foot and a half long and about a foot and a half wide. It is made of steel and looks like it could be held as a shield.
