Shield Sacrifice

If you are wielding a shield, you can choose to destroy your shield in response to a successful attack. When you shield sacrifice, you negate the damage from a single attack roll, and the shield is destroyed. (You cannot use shield sacrifice if your shield is indestructible.) No roll is necessary to successfully shield sacrifice. Like any other attempt to parry, you can only shield sacrifice if you have not yet acted in the round.
