Parry lets you take a more defensive stance in combat, and use some of your
attacks to parry instead of hitting your opponent. You can at maximum use
three of your attacks for parrying.
When used without argument, start parrying with the maximum available attacks
if not parrying already, or stop parrying. When used with a number, use that
many attacks to parry. Used with 0 equals stopping parrying.
For every round of combat in which you parry all attacks an opponent has 
attempted on you, you get closer to launching ripostes back at your opponent.
These ripostes become increasingly deadly. Once you have lured an opponent
so far close that you can launch ripostes on them, your parrying will become
even more reliable.
Note that you will not launch ripostes while being bashed yourself.
