This is a pretty funny (and brief) write-up about reacting to earth-collisions.

Successful players are ALWAYS those who do not put
on a pretense of being some imaginary character, but
players who dig down within themselves to find something
which they don't generally display. This usually turns
out to be a remarkable trait they possess. I have a cleric
in my offline who, when not a cleric, is shy and speaks
little. But who will, at play, display vocal support for
the party, resolve, bravery and generousity. That is
because, deep inside, the player in question has these
traits--she isn't making them up for the sake of "character."
Players should be themselves.
This shield functions as a normal 'target' shield
of strong wood, bound with a rivetted iron band.
While used it is weightless/unencumbering and buoyant,
able to support up to 200 lbs before taking on water.
It will bear a simple two-colored design of the
owner's choosing and will refresh it at dawn. Once
the owner sets the image it cannot be changed.
