House Rules: Feats – Shield Specialization

You have mastered the use of one type of shield.
    Prerequisites: Proficiency with selected shield, Shield Focus, fighter level 4th.
    Benefit: Choose one type of shield (buckler, light, heavy, or tower shield). With the selected shield, you gain a +2 bonus to your Armor Class against critical hit confirmation rolls. In addition, you increase your DR/armor by 1 when using the selected shield.
    If your fighter level is 12th or higher, your bonus to your Armor Class against critical hit confirmation rolls increases to +4, and your DR/armor bonus increases to 2 when using the selected shield. In addition, once per day you may negate a critical hit, and damage is instead rolled normally.
    Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of shield.
