Ability to hold pavise shields like regular shields

64 35

I know that pavise shields were meant to be worn on the back or placed to block incoming enemy arrows, but why not have the ability to use it with a one handed weapon like a regular shield. Something that I will vouch happened in real life. I know there are many issues people may have, so I want to hear why this may or may not work.

Because Pavise Shield is insanely large

Because it isn't just another shield? And doesn't it cost less, too?

And therefore it shouldn't be possible to use it as a weaker but cheaper shield? They could just make it slow and sluggish to use to balance it out, but while giving the players options without overshadowing other shields.

How about no?

It's a special shield. It's a cheap back cover and you can place it on the ground.
If you want to use a shiled, use one that is dedicated for active use as a shield. Why ruining a unique piece of equipment?
