Instant action battles set in the world of Victis. Victis is planned as a role-playing game on the PC, combining visceral action with turn-based tactics. The game is set in a dark medieval fantasy with gunpowder firearms instead of swords and bows.
Retractable Tower Shields are the Shieldsmen's namesake. Made of solid steel, only the strongest warriors take up this role.
While in limber mode, the shield offers more mobility (limited as it is for a Shieldsman).
When activated, the shield is as good as a wall of steel, shrugging off even the high-speed bullets of Sharpshooters.
