Legend of Zelda: An RPG to the Past
Made of the bark of a Deku Tree, the Deku Shield can be horrifying to some of the Deku people. It is unfortunately weak when it comes to protecting oneself against fire.
Special Qualities: When using a Deku Shield to bash, it is a martial bludgeoning weapon. For the purpose of penalties on attack rolls, treat a light shield as a light weapon. If you use your shield as a weapon, you lose its Armor Class bonus until your next turn. An enhancement bonus on a shield does not improve the effectiveness of a shield bash made with it, but the shield can be made into a magic weapon in its own right.
Deku Shields have a weakness to fire. All Fire attacks deal double damage.
Wearing a Deku Shield around Deku will penalize you -2 to your Diplomacy Checks. Toward Kokiri, this is instead +2.
