Defensive Stance


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any more information on 'Defensive Stance' as mentioned MRQ2 under parry? P84

Why do a defensive stance instead of a reactive parry and lose the committed CA?

Parry: The Adventurer can attempt to deflect an incoming
attack. As well as being a reactive response, this action can
also be declared in advance of an expected attack by adopting
a defensive stance. However, once committed, the CA cannot
be converted back to any other type of action and is lost if not
used before his next Strike Rank occurs.

I don't know what the MRQ2 is so I can't check it, but is it possible that with a defensive stance you don't get an increasing penalty for each parry beyond the first?

Mongoose RuneQuest II, you could try summoning @lawrence.whitaker, one of the authors, but he may be busy with its grandchild, Mithras.
