Default Re: Sacrifice Parry with thrown weapons?

Weight limits could be a factor. A light thrown dart might just break if it was used to parry a sword. Same as a small dagger might if you used it to parry in melee.

A heavy throwing axe on the other hand, I could see that deflecting a sword swing.

That said, travel time is an issue, fast as people can throw a dart it may take longer to get there than a point blank sword swing.

Part of the issue is you need to throw fast enough so it gets there before the attack does.

Of course... I could probably thrown a ball 3 hexes away faster than I could pivot a 3 yard spear 90 degrees...
