A member of our group has suggested that because a double handed "green" stab will pierce armor, then a double handed "green" stab will pierce a shield. While I don't find a specific rule to directly support his argument, I can almost follow his logic. Please cogitate and elucidate. I will be most grateful.

Class 2 weapons can break shields.

That's it.

Class 3 weapons can pierce armor provided that it is a two-handed thrust/stab.

That's it.

There is no circumstance in which a Class 3 weapon can pierce a shield.

Additionally, if we think this through logically, what use would piercing a shield be? Piercing a limb disables that limb but doesn't count towards limb-loss. So, piercing a shield would... not count towards shield break?

Or, is the assumption that piercing through the shield disable the target behind it? So, you double-green my tower shield down by my ankle and I take leg?

No, sir. That's just asking for mega-confusion.

Keep it simple. If you have further questions on this topic, please edit your post.
