[.11] Stalwart Shield and Voice Radius


This may be a LCO thing, I'm not sure if Voice Radius is specifically spelled out in this version of the rules.

Can I use a charge of 'strengthening' to resist the VR affect, as if the VR hit the shield?

General Questions:
Do I need to be trained in Shield to use stalwart shield? (Similar to how Channel didn't need the weapon skill in the old rules)

Voice radius does not "hit" the shield, so it could not be stopped via Stalwart Shield.

You do not need training in Shield to use a Stalwart Shield Ritual, though you might take a lot of weapon blows on the way to stopping something useful :)


Also Voice Radius is a valid delivery in this version of the rules. It's on PG .97 of the ARB. Since the packet didn't notate that is changing, it's still in.

Radius: Radius deliveries include traps,
contact poisons, and monster abilities such as
eye contact or sound of voice. Usually a Hold
is called when a radius attack takes place and
everyone partially within the radius is affected.
Radius attacks can never be Dodged or Evaded
