Sundered shield of Tiernon
Tiernon has apparently ‘awoken’ the enchantment that was hibernating with the shield (most likely due to the giant’s fist that struck it). He has retracted the runes along the edges and redrawn the Denthelm symbol in its center. The Shield seems brighter than it did before, lighter, and there is a slight vibration when it is held, as if it is humming to itself.

Shield of the Revenant
Worn by a series of paladin in central and northern Faerun, this white and red enameled shield is sacred to the Trinity of Torm, Tyr, and Ilmater.

This shield allowed them to fortify an area with holy magic before entering melee combat. It was most recently used by Kardod of Tyr, who was mauled to death by dozen of wights. His adversary, the necromancer Shanin, sold the shield to a friendly priest of Myrkul.
