Shields of the holy were magical shields that could be found in Zakhara, the Land of Fate.
These items looked like medium-sized shields bearing the image of one of the eight enlightened gods of Zakhara.
If a priest or cleric of the god depicted on the shield's image used the shield, then the shield amplified their ability to turn or command undead. The shield also granted additional protection.
The shield only granted additional protection if carried by anyone other than a cleric or priest of the god depicted on the shield's face.
