Heh - digging out all my old house rules now as counterpoints or alternate suggestions...

Using a Shield
To successfully block a blow with your shield, roll less than the opponents hit roll on a D20. This applies to both melee and missile attacks.

E.g. If your opponent rolls a 5 to hit (and is successful), you must roll a 4 or less on a D20 to block the blow.

Note that critical hits cannot be blocked, as it is impossible to roll less than 1.

Blocking Indirect Spells
In the same fashion as blocking a normal attack, the defender may catch a spell blast on their shield by rolling less than the value of the speed vs evasion roll. However, this can only be attempted in place of dodging, so the defenders evasion is considered 0.

Only spells that normally have their damage reduced by armour can be blocked on a shield. If the damage is only blocked by magical armour, then consequently only a magical shield can be used to block that spell.
Some spells are so devastating that they cannot be blocked at all - Firestorm is an example. Any indirect spell or spell-like attack with an area effect cannot be blocked by any shield.

Expert Parry
Characters with the skill 'Expert Parry' may block a blow by rolling less than or equal to the opponents hit roll on a d20. Characters with this skill can block critical hits in this way (if they also roll a 1 for their block).

Hmm... I've just noticed that adding +2 to DEFENCE effectively replicates part of the Main Gauche skill, but with a shield instead of a dagger / shortsword...
