This is intended to provide some narrative resources and inspiration for GMs and Players for cinematic combat descriptions.

UPDATED Nov 4, 2013!
For visual examples of many listed Parry/Guards: http://www.chivalrynow.net/sword/guards.htm


UPDATED Nov 28, 2013!
I've added Improvised Weapons and Spells and refined a few things on this PDF. I hope everyone enjoys it!

This looks to have great possibilities if one masters using it quickly, to keep the pace of the narrative fast. I do notice that some of the descriptions are meaningless to me. For example, what is the "Barber" smarts trick? Or the "G'Night" agility trick? Or the Parry Type II "Boar's Low Guard"? The names themselves don't allow me to describe the action if I don't know what they are. It would be great if you could add one more page to the document to describe some of these esoteric moves. Even without that, though, this is a great help, thanks!

I like it Jpat. I think it might have a roll in a forum game I was thinking of starting, it will be used to help step outside of the rules but still fitting within them. Thanks I'm now thinking of a similar document for Spell casters to help them do more RP over Doorexploding.

Yes, to Finachetto, I plan on doing a more in-depth version of this with descriptions for clarifying things, but also as noted, most of the Tricks came from the Tricks issue of Whispers From the Pit, a Savage Worlds issue, that has the original descriptions of the tricks.

Falin, thanks for the comments, I'd be interested to hear your ideas on spellcaster versions of this type of thing.
