The citizens of Naduesh live in a world where technology has long since passed into legend. The ancient hive cities that dot its planet bear many treasures that no one understands, nor necessarily sees the use for. Occasionally parties of enterprising Rogue Traders and Explorators will chart these ancient cities and produce wonders from an age long since passed. One of them is this exquisitely balanced shield, that handily protects its owner in combat.
