- "Upon closer examination of the runes covering the surface of this breastplate, you think you might be able to unlock the rune's power and use it to invoke a primitive warding enchantment, similar to the one that protected the giant skeleton. Activating the rune will destroy the breastplate, however."
Usable only by mages, this item:
- Casts the 1st level mage spell: Shield, protects the recipient from attacks and gives a bonus to their saving throws.
- Allows mages to copy the Shield spell into their Spell Book.
The rune can be used once before it disappears.
