Zombie Skin Shield

Source Ultimate Equipment pg. 133
Aura moderate abjuration CL 5th
Slot shield; Price 2,159 gp; Weight 15 lbs.


This +1 light steel shield is wrapped in a layer of gray skin. Once per day, the wearer can animate the skin as a human zombie under her control, as if she had created it with animate dead, for a period of 5 minutes. When the time expires, the zombie returns to the shield. If the zombie is destroyed or cannot reach the shield by the time it expires, placing the shield on a Medium humanoid corpse for 1 hour recreates the shield’s skin.
