Okay so I'm doing some research on shields, and I noticed a thing.

Shield
SP Cost: 5, Pre-requisites: Buckler (2)
Description: Allows a character to use a shield. Shields will stop physical strikes from weapons as well as any non-magical or alchemical packet delivered attacks. If struck in the shield by alchemy or spells, then the wearer takes the effect of the spell or alchemy. Maximum size is 3 feet in any dimension. If the shield suffers 40 damage or more in one single hit causes a Shatter effect upon the Shield.

Tower Shield
SP Cost: 4 Pre-requisites: Shield (5)
Description: Allows a character to use a larger shield, maximum size is 5 feet in any dimension. Any magical attack striking the shield affects the wearer with full effect. If the shield suffers 60 or more points of damage in one single attack causes a Shatter effect upon the shield.



Does having Tower Shield make you immune to alchemy when it hits your shield? And if so, is it only when you have a 5' shield? Same with the Shatter limit, does the '60 or more' effect only deal with tower shields or does it apply to all shields, no matter what size you have?

Tower shields function identically to other shields with two exceptions. Their maximum size is larger and the damage threshold from a single blow is higher. All shields take a shatter if struck for enough damage in a single blow. Bucklers - 20 damage, Shields - 40 damage, Tower Shields - 60 damage. Spells and gas globes always affect the wielder when striking a shield. Any shield which is more than 3 feet in its longest dimension and no more than 5 feet is a tower shield.
