I hope people see this and can give an answer (I don't come to this thread very often)

I'm trying to figure out a word to use that would represent a shield for a magic user.
For a warrior you have Body armor, helmet, boots, shield, gauntlet, belt, grieves, armlet, coif etc..
But for a magic user you have robe, hood, gloves, boots, belt, maybe more
So I want to have a category for a shield for a magic user but have it called something else.

The best I could find/think of is ward, protector, badge
But not really good names.

I'm kind of thinking it could be like a magic ball that floats over the shoulder, or a small piece of armour that is attached to the robe/arm.

Thoughts?

Besides ring and cape, a magic belt would also be good. One of the characters in Dragon Quest Dai had a magic belt that amplified his defense, if I recall correctly.

MZ has bracelets for its mages' shields in the default database. I believe Phantasy Star has similar for female characters ("emels" and sleeves). I've pondered mages and rogues getting bucklers instead of full-sized shields, but my fantasy games aim more toward historical combat than enchanted gear. Alternatively, an off-hand mage item that doesn't boost DEF could be a wand, spellbook, etc.

it can also be a Tome, another Wand, A crystal ball etc. Anything item that can do magic that you carry like a shield. In games like Diablo/Grimdawn they categorize this as an "Off-hand" equipment.

I create Magic Ring in Shield,which greatly increase MDF 2x than DEF (i design it for Magic User,not the other).

For Elemental,i can make it with Absorbing or Reflecting Traits

Made a surprising amount of progress in these past two days. Really helps when parallax mapping breaks limitation and allowing me to be creative and make maps that match my vision.
Let's promote our amazing artists in RPG Maker community! I posted right now about my game Phil Alone on Twitter and I decided to thanks Lime Zu, the amazing artist that did all the pixel assets for my game!
I just realised that the reason behind me not being able to make a game may be the lack of my original resources. I just dont like the look of MV faces and sprites, lol. Guess I will have make my own art.
I'm posting a commission art soon! :kaoswt2:
So here's a fun/tragic fact about me: I have an awful memory. But to be correct, I have memory "leaks". My memory is actually amazing, my issue is I can't keep memories for long, in fact, I once forgot my name. :kaoswt2:
