c/p from the note card:
Something new to our Dual weapons is our new Offhand Weapon Shield. Instead of just a secondary weapon for looks we've made it into a shield by using the GM Shield scripts. They are completely legal in every sim that uses the Gorean Meter. The shield (offhand weapon) when drawn will block any attacks that come your way. Shields dodge melee strikes always, if and only if you have defense left on your meter. Shielding a strike takes defense from you. Once your defense is gone you will no longer block or dodge. A shield can shield from ranged attack also though only at 30% success rate and it never can shield a direct hit.
