Description[edit | edit source]
|“||In ecstasy warriors clashed their notched swords on their riven shields, and the people of the town, ragged beggars and rich merchants, harlots in red kirtles and dames in silks and satins, fell to their knees and cried out for joy to Mitra, tears of gratitude streaming down their faces.||„|

Strengthened with iron, this targe sacrifices some of its maneuverability for additional durability. The knobs on the front of the shield are designed to notch the weapons and claws of foes.
The rivets and design work do not point to a particular cultural tradition, but rather reflect the experimental nature of smith work in the Exiled Lands.
The targe is a shield designed for attack as much a defense. A well placed strike with the shield can stagger an enemy and leave them open to attacks from a weapon in the main hand.
