With my char set up with a shield and GM parry, throwing skill 115+, 44 HCI, I counted the hits and misses over 100 throws against Ettins and then Earth Els. My char had 121 Str so the range was quite adequate. Ettins: Hits 75%, Misses 25% As there were some runs of hits the final figure is somewhat misleading as the most common individual kill was 4 hits and 2 misses (66%/33%). Earth Els: Hits 41%, Misses 59% One notable event was that against one El I missed 13 times in succession before hitting it three times in succession. Even when I have been developing a new skill, and the skill level was around 35, I have never failed 13 times in a row before. Someone may point out that my Parry is not at 120, but I doubt that even if it was the scores would improve that much. Edit: The Ettin test was carried out in Despise, the Earth El test in Shame. One other significant bug that I also discovered is that parry does not function as parry when you are carrying a weapon. I went to Despise and got myself surrounded by Lizardmen. With no weapon in hand parry works as usual and your shield takes damage. However, with a weapon in hand, parry does not function and your shield takes no damage.
