Large Shields are shield which protect almost all of the body of the wearer, if standing behind it. Like the medium shield, the large shield offers protection against all type of attacks, but it has armor class bonus against missiles as well. One disadvantage of this shield is that it requires 15 Strength? to wield it and it weighs 15 lbs. Like the other shield, it appears in three different colors, light brown, brown, and black. This appears in Icewind Dale.
The body shield, also known as the kite or tower shield, is a massive metal or wooden shield reaching nearly from the chin to the toe of the user. It must be firmly fastened to the forearm and the shield hand must firmly grip it at all times. Naturally, this precludes use of the shield hand for anything but holding the body shield in place.
