The Shieldbearers of Iron Delving
It is commonly known that the most favorite fighting style of the Clan members consists in using an axe (or a mace) and a shield. While the most people use shields only for defending themselves, dwarven warriors have mastered the skill of bashing their opponents to gain adventage in combat. However, while the Clan creates quite tight structure, open only for their own kin, the Shieldbearers sometimes teach the trick to their good and trusted friends and it is not rare sight to see a gnome or even a kender (!) running with a shield slung over his back.
