The Ruined Akaviri Shield is like the ceremonial shields that can be found in many of the fighters guild halls. It weighs as much as a standard Blades Shield but it has only a defense factor of 1 and very low hit-points.
It looks like a Blades shield with only one 'Stud' in its center, it also has various different sized cracks and fractures around its edge. It's identical to the Tower of the Nine shield.
The shield can also be found in a display case in the Great Hall of Castle Bruma. Taking it will be considered a crime.
