Depending on what the Bow is made out of and who is doing the parry. A bow could survive with no problem. A Cross bow on the other hand would have a very hard time with a parry. Now someone who knows how to use a sling could be great with a parry. See to say weapon parry is almost to say I struck that person. Each type of weapon would have a different way that it parred. Thought that would not even have to come into game play. A Long sword would be blade on blade (all this is if the attack has a sword) A Battle axe would be using the metal part between the blade and the cap that holds the axe on. With a sling the parry would be to the hand of the person attacking. The person using the sling would drop on end and use it as a short whip to tangle and pull the sword arm off course (Mind you that would be hard to do but than again all parry are hard to do) With a bow a person would use it as a staff and strike at the sword hand or the legs. With a knife it all depends on the shape of the knife. If it has a locking guard than parry would be blade to blade ending in a lock. If it was just a blade than the perry would be to close the gap and slice the sword hand. With a spear it would be a blade on blade block that let the spear go towards the body of the sword user. Each weapon has a parry but I will agree very quickly that to add parry would be hard to work in. If even needed. The reason I say this is because of the description of a combat turn. 6 seconds is a long time to fight I think that you most likely have parred someone during the 6 second. The quickest way to tell if you parred some one is if your damage rolls bad. :) Your lil bro in Christ Joseph Roberson Jeremiah 1:6-7 Psalm 40 James 4:7 ________________________________________________________________ GET INTERNET ACCESS FROM JUNO!
