Some time ago, in a campaign I play in, my DM gifted me with a Shield Guardian. Gary has been a wonderful addition to the team. I love him very much and if anything would happen to him I would go into a blind, fireball blasting rage, but I digress. I wanted to make something of a companion construct similar to the Shield Guardian but something less potent and more of a support, and aggro magnet rather than a literal tank. The Buckler Guardian is essentially a miniature version with a few aspects removed such as the spell storing and shield reaction, but still has the bound and regeneration abilities. I also added the blinding beauty as a useful debuff. It’s been a while since I’ve edited an existing monster, especially to this degree, so I feel that its a bit unbalanced, BUT I also feel this is a good starting point to a fun little item.
The Buckler Guardian is a fun little pal that will always get your back. It can be very useful for a team that may be lacking in defensive capabilities and in numbers. There are a number scenarios I can imagine this guy being useful and I hope anyone that adopts him will find him fun. This is definitely something I will tweak with especially if any of you have suggestions. So please let me know what you think!
