How does one fight with a shield as their primary equipment? I’m aware that this is impractical, but in the case where a warrior was disarmed, how could they put up a fight with a shield alone? Sorry if this has been asked before.

You can bash with the shield, and in a pinch, depending on the specific design of the shield, you could strike with the edge.

That said, your character’s first goal should be to get their hands on another weapon, using their shield to buy enough time to do that. Ideally your character should be carrying a backup weapon already, but, if they don’t, or their sword was their final fallback weapon, they’re going to need to get creative and find or improvise one quickly.
