Plural: yules shields
Yule find this log is handy as a shield ... for very loose definitions of shield. And handy. It's heavy and awkward, but if it gets between you and an opponent, it'll stop a blow. The first couple of times. Yule probably want something sturdier if your opponent has an axe.

One yule shield was given to each naturalist player by Ryme as a gift for Yule, 2009. The message said:
Wishing you a yummy Yuletide, or whatever the holiday's catchphrase is. Hopefully all those other holidays are treating you well, too.
P.S. I probably sound like a grump when I say this, but as a public service announcement, I'd like to refer anyone who isn't familiar with the game policies or needs a refresher to check out the policies link in the footer. Every year these holiday items cause a number of players to forget the rules and commit multi abuse in order to give themselves more of them. I don't want to spend my Christmas week scolding or disabling accounts, and I'm sure no players want to be on the receiving end of such notes. So let's keep this festive occasion about giving and generosity (to other people) and not focus so much on greed (giving to oneself), shall we?
Seriously, though, I hope you're having a happy holidays!
