Not So Heroic
The Cleansing Greatshield has the following properties:
- Your maximum HP increases by +4
- Nearby allies add your Tier to their defenses
- Daily: Nearby allies can add the escalation die to all defenses for one round, and can make a saving throw against any ongoing effect.
- Quirk: You become overprotective of your allies, heedless of the danger to yourself.
