Small shields are a type of shield in Pillars of Eternity. They don't give an accuracy penalty, but also have the worst deflection bonus of all shields.

Though they don't offer much protection, small shields do not interfere with a warrior's accuracy at all. Unlike larger shields, which are worn on the forearm, small shields are held in the hand.
