Drew has been playing RPGs for more than 20 years, and has been behind the GM's screen for, well, pretty much all of that. He lives in Ireland, is married, has a dog, and is frequently sat on by two cats (ownership being a dicey concept with cats). He also engages in gardening, cooking, extensive reading, occasional DIY, and is studying for a BA in Humanities in Dublin City University. He works as an online marketing consultant for a small company called Elucidate.

comment Which arm was the shield held in?
Further, you really need to use your dominant hand for the weapon. Trying to hit hard enough to do damage or kill with the off hand is quite hard - you can hit almost equally with your fist, but you run into dexterity and aim issues very quickly with any weapon. Plenty of fighting styles used no shield at all.
