Tower Shield Proficiency [Combat]

You are trained in how to properly use a tower shield.

Prerequisite

Shield Proficiency.

Benefit

When you use a tower shield, the shield's armor check penalty only applies to Strength and Dexterity-based skills.

Normal

A character using a shield with which he is not proficient takes the shield's armor check penalty on attack rolls and on all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride.

Special

Fighters automatically have Tower Shield Proficiency as a bonus feat. They need not select it.
