(Answered) Parrying kicks or multiple attacks
« on: 11 December 2020, 12:16:43 »
TO p.89 describes using physical weapons to parry attacks instead of blocking them. From the wording, it is not clear if you can only parry attacks you would block with your arms (since physical weapons are mounted in arms), or if you can also parry kicks (which is blocked with a leg instead of an arm). Also, it is not clear if you can make 2 parries the same way you would make 2 blocks if both arms mount physical weapons.

First consulting the "Blocking a Physical Attack section", there is no additional restriction on parrying, so the answer is "Yes" because you can block a kick with your arm anyway.  The second question is "yes" if the physical weapons were already capable of blocking two attacks, like Claws.  You don't get to parry twice for mounting two Hatchets.
