Original Dune
This article or section refers to elements from Original Dune.


House Shields were the choice of defense for many Great Houses. The name House does not come from its use by Great Houses, but by what it protected: the home of a Great House. Any palace or castle or any home to a House was protected by this shield.

The shield was a larger version of the defensive shield worn by a person and could cover large areas without becoming unstable, as a Pentashield would do. Because of its massive size, a House Shield couldn't be shorted-out by a Lasgun.
