Distant Friend's Shield Cost: 2 motes Type: Reflexive Duration: Instant Min. Thrown: 4 Min. Essence: 2 Prereqs: Loyal Weapon, Whirlwind Shield Form
Allows the Dynast to make a standard Dexterity + Thrown attack against a ranged attack (either Archery or Thrown) which passes within the range of his weapon. For example, any arrow or hurled weapon which would pass within 20 yards of a chakram bearing Terrestrial may be targeted. This attack is treated as a parry for the purposes of reducing the attack's successes. Despite the name, it may also be used to parry ranged attacks directed at the Dynast themself.
Inspired by Naruto! DS
You actually started to watch Naruto? And you didn't tell me? You bastard! -Dim
It's kind of a new thing :) I'm just up to Zabuza and the bridge- seeing Haku deflect Zabuza's suriken away from Naruto with his own thrown needles is what inspired this Charm. But yeah- Naruto is getting viewed in the dark of the night now. DS
That's *exactally* where I am in the series. Curse my commute...wait, now I actually have motivation to watch it, outside of "it's Dragon-Blooded Ninjas" -Dim
A minor quibble, but why the prerequisites stated? It seems much more apt to have the Charm stemming from Vengeful Gust Counterattack, in my own most humble of opinions...DeathBySurfeit
