"So I says to him, I says. Firstly, you take one o'them there bags of holding see, and stretch it 'cross your shield like so..."

A Black Shield is an odd item, it consists of a simple wooden shield, the front of which is a stretched open Bag of Holding held in place by an iron band riveted around the shield's edge. The result appears, from the front to be a round metal ring surrounding a broad impenetrable blackness, a hole into nothingness, in its center, attackers attempting to hit the shield encounter nothing but empty space as far back as, and further than, they can reach. Anything dropped in there (weapons, bodies, evidence) is lost forever.
