First used by Sir Konnolan who became the first baron when he lead his troops into battle and lost during his heroic defense of the Silver Pass when he was in his seventies. Recovered by the militia leader Ronald Stronghand who broke the Black Fang Raiders before being lost again. Last seen fifty years ago, used by the Baron youngest son to defend the keep during the eighty day siege. It is a shield of legend, of history, of our brave ancestors.
