Good to finally see some shield love. Lets a shield user have a place in a party without becoming overly powerful or overly weak. Also doesn't compeltely handicap the player if they're separated from a shield like it could have.

"Sword and Board" is such a classic fighter archetype, but doesn't get much of a spotlight in the official subclasses, so I'm extremely happy to have found Sworn Shield! The abilities are fun to play, and the mechanics feel like they could be straight out of the PHB. Really well-designed!

Out of the Martial Mayhem bundle we have the Sword Shield, a soldier of staunch dedication to holding the front lines with his mighty shield. Evan asked me to take a look at this puppy, and I was very excited to, however - I felt like something was lacking from what I had imagined. It felt more like a glorified feat rather than a class, with a lot of the abilities not really standing out to me as something epic and amazing that plants its shield upon the battlefield. However, that is not to say I didn't enjoy this archetype, I think it has a lot of potential. What I would suggest is go all out - go big, go epic, go intense and powerful. I feel like the two big places where the archetype falls short is the Shield Bash and Shelter of Iron abilities, as I think those could be a lot more powerful. I also dunno if the shield on the first page is technically allowed since I don't recall seeing it in any of the DMG stock image bundles. So overall, I think this supplement has a little way to go until it is totally ready - the potential is there, I think it is just falling short. Comics, Clerics, & Controllers d20 Roll: 10
