Grabbing Shields

You can also attempt to grab a shield or cloak. This requires at least one empty hand. Roll against DX or a grappling skill to hit - but instead of the usual -4 to grab a weapon hand (see Grabbing, p. B370), roll at -4 plus the shield or cloak's DB. Your opponent can use any active defense; he can parry your hand with a weapon.

A successful attack means you've grabbed the shield or cloak. Until your victim breaks free or you let him go, he cannot block or add his DB to his defenses. He may attempt to break free on his turn; see Break Free (p. B371). If so, you're at the usual +5 if you used both hands. He gets +4 if his shield is strapped to his arm.
