Shield Proficiency

Shield Proficiency [General]

You are proficient with bucklers, small shields and large shields.

Benefit: You can use a shield and take only the standard penalties (see table 7-6: armour and shields, page 123).

Normal: When you are using a shield with which you are not proficient, you take the shield's armour check penalty on attack rolls and on all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride checks.

Special: Barbarians, Bards, Clerics, Druids, Fighters, paladins, and rangers automatically have Shield Proficiency as a bonus feat. They need not select it.
