Shield Push is a shield specialization maneuver allowing you to push your opponent into another room, following them and giving them roundtime. You can specify a direction in which to push them, or leave it blank for a random direction.

The moss grows like a blanket up the trunks of the oak and modwir trees here.  The large trees stand, indifferent to the encroachment of the harmless fungus.  You also see a forest troll.

Modwir trees predominate this section of forest, as though the oak, satisfied with its allotted space, has made room for the tall pines.  You also see a forest troll and a charred skull on a pike.
