Description:

Parry is a skill which allows you to block some of an enemy's attacks.
It is most effective with a sword or other long weapon, though daggers
and other short weapons or fists can be effective to a lesser extent.

This is a passive skill, in that there is no need to type in any command
for an attempt at parry.

NOTE: This skill is not the same thing as the "parry" option. See
help
options
for more information on the parry option.
