Luminous Interceptor Defense

Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious, Twilight
Duration: Instant
Prerequisite Charms: Limned Instrument Prana

Activating this charm requires the martial artist to be armed with a form weapon, and allows him to apply his Parry DV against an unblockable attack, even when not wielding any weapons which could normally be used to block an attack. When parrying an attack in this fashion, the martial artist’s weapon gains a Defense rating equal its Artifact rating, unless its normal Defense is higher.

If an N/A rated artifact is used to defend in this fashion, the martial artist may pay an additional 1wp when activating this charm to perfectly block the attack. That he must have and be able to use such a weapon constitutes a special flaw of invulnerability. If this optional cost is not paid, treat N/A artifacts as if they had Artifact rating equal to the wielder’s Essence to determine Defense as described above.
