Off-Handed Shield

Design concept for an Off-Hand shield! Dink can now defend himself a bit better, at the cost of using his Magic slot.
Check the included Readme for instructions on how to add this to your own Dmod.

Features included:

- Barehanded Shield Graphics (For punching)
- Sword & Shield Graphics (For slashing)
- 'Guard' state: when used to actively block, provides a temporary boost to defense
- Passive boost to defense by simply wielding the shield
- A small map with enemies, reusable health station, and in-game explanations

An addon exists for this mod, created by Josko, which includes new herb boots and light sword graphics, both shielded and non-shielded versions.

What Ex-Deathevn and RobJ has managed to do is simply jawdropping. The two shields included, the buckler and kite shield is of absolute top quality. It really looks like they were always there. The code made by RobJ is in absolute top class and greatly commented to understand everything. Superb coding.

Very well done. An absolute must have in my opinion! In every dmod I make or play, I will always have these shields included.

I'll give this Off-hand Shield mod a rating of 9.9. It is truly perfect, I cannot think of a single bad thing about it.
