This is a fearsome weapon that has begun appearing among some Skullcrusher and Horrorwoods clanswomen. The Buzzshield is a thick buckler-style shield carried on one arm. It can be used to parry as normal, but with a simple activating command, curved razor-sharp blades can emerge from a track around the edge of the shield and start rotating at high speed, transforming the shield into a megadamage buzzsaw. Extremely useful for cutting through obstacles, be they vegetation, debris, or opponents attempting to grapple. It also possesses incredible intimidation value, especially at close range where potential victims can hear its sharp buzz.
During the Minion War, the Buzzshield saw increased use with engagements with demons, often times silver coated and sometimes blessed.
For anybody with less than a Robotic P.S. of 24, the Buzzshield’s torque when powered up and running gives it a -2 to parry and a -1 to strike. For those of greater strength, no such penalties apply, and the shield even gets a +1 to parry.
