Thieves and Shields

Post by Thane » Fri Jun 01, 2012 2:54 am

I couldn't find it, but how does the thief interact with shields? Can they use them or not?

Characters with a Strength of 5 or less can carry a weapon or a shield but not both.

Shields cannot be used with two-handed weapons.

That's all. Everyone can use every kind of armour, but there are penalties.

I couldn't find any penalties for thieves using shields.

Is it a case that they flat out can't?

I'm thiking of allowing them to use them in combat, but giving them a -4 penalty to use them in all other thieving skill use situations.

As I told it above, everyone can use every kind of shield and armour. The penalties for using a shield or amour are the same for everyone - check the equipment chapter.

Well, without index, that's no wonder. :lol:
