Magic Shield Generator

This generator can be used to generate magic shields. If it's a regular magic shield of +1, it will have its Base AC for its size, plus any material or face modifiers, and then +1 to its total AC. If it's a magic shield +2 or a special artifact magic shield found in the depths of a tomb or something; then it also gets a Shield Power.

Shield Size & Base AC Value -
Roll d3
[1] Buckler / Roundshield - +1 AC (Use in a Grapple)
[2] Kite / Heater - +2 AC
[3] Tower / Fullsize - +3 AC (Encumbrers)

Shield Material - Roll d12
[1] Beast Hide (+1 Damage with Attacks when held) Exotic skin stretched along its frame.
[2] Sacred Copper (Immune to Corrosion/Acid) Has a green tint, strong copper disc.
[3] Bones (+2 to Saves vs Death) Made of bones, infused with deathly magic energies.
[4] Dwarf Steel (+1 AC, -1 Initiative) Very heavy, but extremely strong.

[6] Crystal (+4 AC against Blasts, Immune to Color Spray) Prismatic, splits light and the elements.

[9] Scales (+1 To-Hit with attacks when held, Shield repairs itself if destroyed) Made from the scales of a serpent or reptile. You'll get excited thinking its dragon scale but it's not, sorry.
[10] Ironwood (First person to strike it each day is Entangled) Charged with the magic of nature; the strength of the roots is based on ecosystem. Forest roots are strong, desert roots are weak.
[11] Turtle Shell (Swim at Dolphin speed) Made of a turtle's shell. By holding this shield and kicking your feet, it will increase your speed to that of a fast swimming dolphin.
[12] Mysterium (Whenever an attack is blocked, deal 1 damage of a random element at the attacker in melee) This material conducts magical energies. This shield releases elemental energy when struck. The element is only rolled once when this shield is created, and is always the same. Roll 1d4- Fire, Cold, Lightning, Acid

[5] Gong (Shield user can strike shield to create a sonic blast; deals 1d4 damag, knock back 10 ft, and deafen all within cone; 3 times/day) Requires a blunt instrument the front; blasting like a gong.
