Daily. Parry is a Smart Defense that may be used to negate any one attack using the Weapon or Poison qualifiers. You may Parry an attack that targets another person, as long as the target is within physical reach of your weapon or shield. Parry cannot be used against traps (except for weapon traps).

Parry may be used with any weapon or shield in which the user has the appropriate skill, except crossbows and thrown weapons. You may not use a Parry if you do not have a weapon or shield free and in your hand. Any weapon which allows you to block with one hand may be used to Parry with only one hand on the weapon.

You must say “Parry” when using this skill. If the Parry is used to negate an attack made against another person you must also clearly indicate what attack the skill was used against.
