"Rust stripes this ageless, flat-faced buckler. Painted on its face is the coat of arms of an archaic house -- white runic script on a field of crimson."

"You recovered the lost aegis of House Yish, Stopsvalinn."

Can be activated to create a 3 square bubble of forcefield in your chosen direction, at the expense of energy. Remember to turn the bubble off when you're done, as it drains energy very fast.

Notes Edit

Stopsvalinn is found randomly in the desert canyons, wielded by a random legendary snapjaw of no special note. Once you come close enough to this creature, a message will declare that you have found the snapjaw wielding Stopsvalinn.

Snapjaw legendaries will occasionally snitch the location of the shield during Water Ritual. It will then listed in your journal under the artifacts section.

This artifact is an excellent addition to any melee character, even those not planned to wear shields. It will only occupy one arm slot with no penalty and provide a potential 3 AV and the Shield Bash ability in combat, including all shield skill passives depending on the amount of invested skill points.

Recall Story Edit

Recounted here are the annals of the shield Stopsvalinn, heirloom of House Yish, from whose letters and diaries this account is composed.

  • Borne by Harem, son of Oshum, and lost in the canyons near the farmstead of Qoppa when his covey was beset by snapjaws.
  • Borne by Oshum, son of Qor, and wielded courageously at the Battle of YutYuyut.
  • Borne by Qor, son of Ishram, and soused in the blood of a corrupt magister.
  • Borne by Ishram, son of Iimet, when it languished in a house vault.
  • Borne by Iimet, daughter of Harem, who supplanted her brother as heir when he was disavowed by their father.
  • Borne by Harem, son of Morshur, who dashed upon it the heads of the beast Yygryla.
  • Borne by Morshur, son of Oshum, who forded a river at the edge of the world.
  • Borne by Oshum, son of Harem, and risen to rouse farmers to defend the Hold of Yish.
  • Borne by Harem, who claimed descendancy from the Eater Yish, Warden of the Cross and Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Cone, who patrolled the rows of ancient Qud with his fellow Knights Conical, and on whose arm Stopsvalinn is told to have evoked such dread that riders drew their chariots to a halt at the mere vision of it.

Trivia Edit

  • In Norse mythology, Svalinn is a legendary shield which stands before the sun.
    • The name means "cold" or "chill" and is derived from the verb svala means "cool"; svala sér means "to slake one's thirst" and svala-drykkr is an "icing draught".
  • The shield bears the appearance and description of a traffic stop sign, even referred to as such in the Achievements
