Originally no. I don't think that ruling ever changed?

I think the rules were changed ages ago to allow it in armour but not with a weapon? If it doesn't say in the 6.0 rules that you can't then it was changed.

I would strongly recommend that it be clarified that FA/FL parry can't be used whilst wielding a weapon. I know we did a whole load of arguing and ruling on that, and I know there are uniques out there to let people use it with a weapon...

This is becoming a lot more complicated than I wanted it to be. I wanna play ten tigers in October. I want to buy fap and flap assuming I can parry with my arms when I dont have both hands on my sword. If this isnt allowed then that is completely fine, I wont buy fap.. Yet.

Its only 8 skill difference so it doesnt matter too much id just like to know :D

Forearm Parry from v5.3 (12/03/08)
Forearm Parry
Base Cost: 8 (H)
Effects: The Silent Blade are skilled at turning blows with their forearms. They may parry physical weapon blows with their fore arms, but only when they are wearing no armour, carrying no weapons and fighting in a purely defensive style.


Forarm Parry from v5.4 onward (19/02/09)
Forearm Parry
Base Cost: 8 (H)
Effects: The Silent Blade are skilled at turning blows with their forearms. They may parry physical weapon blows with their fore arms.


And here is Will's post from February 2009

Forearm/leg parry changed back, some changes to skill costs with serkanians, edits to how Shaded blade get bonuses from their weapon.


I know there are uniques out there to let people use it with a weapon...


Not that I can recall?

Well regardless of what it was, what rules currently say etc can I assume that the following is correct:

YOU CANNOT USE FOREARM OR FORELEG PARRY WHILST WEARING ARMOUR OR WIELDING A WEAPON IN EITHER HAND.

Sorry Luke.

As a monster/ref I often find it difficult to feel the need to change something when it isn't currently being abused. I'm very happy for it to stay how it is but if people want it changed, I have no issue with it. As a player I've never used Forearm/leg parry, I don't think I'd be able to make it look good so I don't bother. This makes it part of the system that just doesn't bother me.

Change it/don't change it: I don't mind, just don't make me try to do it.
