Woodcrafting Suggestions - Shields?



  • Hey, what about adding some different shields to woodcrafting, perhaps even a wooden helmet? Benefits similar to the wood types,perhaps a lowered fire resistance?



  • Perhaps different types of lacquer coatings, like the smithing coating processes, to give additional properties or remove fire res penalties?

    Make some suggestions of what materials would be needed
    Keep in mind we have 3 types of wood available: Oak, Hickory, Mahogany



  • Something like that? Could be small, medium and large variants ...

    Oakenshield
    3 planks of oak
    AC Shield Modifier +1 vs. Undead

    Oakenshield, webbed
    3 planks of oak
    2 Ettercap`s silk gland
    AC Shield Modifier +1 vs. Undead, Immunity to Spell Web

    Oakenshield, ironed
    3 planks of oak
    1 iron ingot
    AC Shield Modifier +1 vs. Undead and fey

    Oakenshield, gemmed
    3 planks of oak
    1 iron ingot
    3 powdered gems
    AC Shield Modifier +1 vs. Undead and fey, Spell Light 3xday


  • Precept Arcanum

    Like it @thorkm. But maybe 1 plank for small, 3 for large, and 9 for Tower.

    Hickory wood is very hard, stiff, dense and shock resistant. Maybe it gives a straight +1 AC. but has a much higher level needed to craft and a rare metal ingot?

    Mahogany is not quite as shock resistant. Maybe give it a piercing immunity or slashing immunity and the best version might get both?

    @thorkm These are really good ideas. I'll polish them up and add them to crafting in the next few weeks. I'm totally swamped with work right now, but I have a week off coming up mid-March.
