This Ritual allows the wielder of the weapon the Ritual is cast upon to expend a Parry (if they may Parry with the weapon) to defend against any one magical effect that would normally affect them. A Spell Parry may be used against any effect delivered with the Spell Qualifier. It may also be used against Dragon Magic or Shadow Magic Rituals. It may not be used against a regularly cast Ritual.

The Spell Parry can be used to intercept a spell on another Target if that Target is within Range as defined in the Parry Skill. The effect may be invoked before other defenses are used (as a Smart Defense) if the wielder of the weapon so chooses.

The Spell Parry is usable once per Logistics period at the choice of the wielder of the Targeted weapon. Spell Parry requires the use of a Parry skill in order to "fuel" the ability. A Spell Parry cannot be used unless the user of the weapon possesses an unused Parry skill and using the Spell Parry expends the Parry skill use for that logistics period. The wielder of the weapon calls "Spell Parry" when they choose to use this effect.

This Ritual requires 5 reagents as listed on the scroll.
