Old Dwarven Shield
An archaic dwarven shield inlaid with runes.
This battered light shield is of archaic dwarven design, inlaid with very old Dwarvish runes. These symbols depict mountains, durability, and the earth. The dings and scrapes of numerous battles scar this shield, and it bears evidence of both abuse and disuse. Its original high quality and sturdy design are still apparent, despite all this, and the shield remains quite serviceable.
This shield was carried by a hobgoblin who was leading a goblinoid hunting party which attacked the campsite of our heroes. While all the other goblin shields bore their Bloodclaw clan symbol, this one was left unadorned. When the goblins were defeated, our heroes claimed this item from the fallen creature.
