Used heavily by Braganza's Besiegers, a Free Company operating in Tilea, these special shields are designed to protect crossbowmen from ranged attacks while reloading. Unlike normal shields, which are parrying weapons, the pavise actually provides cover. To use, the crossbowman props the shield in front of him.[1a]
