Shield Guard


These warriors wear the old shields of their ancients. These ancients could hold the line in the great battles until the reinforcements arrived, but they paid a high price, not many survived the battle and many others died through their strong wounds. Now only the best warriors are allowed to carry these ancient shields to remind the world and to honor these brave man and their sacrifice.

Special Notes: The steadiness of this unit reduces damage from some attacks, but only while defending. Adjacent lower-level units of the same allegiance have their resistances increased by the sole presence of this unit.
