You strap a light shield to your forearm and grip it with your hand. A light shield's weight lets you carry other items in that hand, although you cannot use weapons or any other item with it. An item in a shield hand may be gripped and wielded with your other hand as a free action. If you wish to swap items between a held item and a wielded item, you may do so as a free action. Wooden and steel shields offer the same basic protection, though they respond differently to some spells and effects. Steel shields have more durability, wooden shields do not rust. You can bash an opponent with a light shield. Used this way, a light shield is a martial bludgeoning weapon. For the purpose of penalties on attack rolls, treat a light shield as a light weapon. If you use your shield as a weapon, you lose its Armor Class bonus until your next turn. An Enhancement Bonus on a shield does not improve the effectiveness of a shield bash made with it, but the shield can be made into a magic weapon in its own right.
