Default Re: Parry

'Relative' probably should be 'relevant'. It's a word misuse or maybe dialect I think I've seen before...

This is actually a little complicated, in that it's mentioned in the skill description but also in the weapon stat-lines. Which is the same penalty mentioned twice, not two separate cumulative -1 penalties. And some Knife weapons introduced later don't have the -1 parry. (Approximately, any with weights over a pound.)
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
