Bind and Strike

Benefit: When an opponent attacks you, and you generate a Bind (tie roll) or an automatic counter-attack (a natural 20 on Active Defense roll) with your shield, buckler, or off-hand weapon, you gain a Free Dice in an immediate counterattack which applies against their Passive Defense. You get this Free Dice (and the counterattack) whether you have any MP remaining or not. Works in conjunction with counterstroke, but you don't get the penalty effect (attack vs. their Passive Defense) unless you generated the counterattack automatically or got a Bind (tie die roll). Works in conjunction with Sprechfenster (you must then seek the bind with your shield)
Bind and Strike: Fencer on the right parries a strike with his mini-pavise shield and counters with his own war hammer simultaneously
