Default Re: Questions about fencing and two-weapons skills

Sorry, but no.

As has been stated by others, the encumbrance of 10 lbs. for a small shield is absolutely ridiculous. A rotella (what most would consider a large shield as larsdangly points out) doesn't even weigh that much.

And the actual diameter of a buckler can be up to to 18" - 24"s or so.

We all have preconceived notions of what weapons/shields/armor "should" be. We should all be willing to give them up. This is especially true if we don't have any particular expertise in the subject.

But hey, this is a "fantasy game," no? YMMV.
