Two Handed Sword confusion

Just got the core rulebook yesterday. I am really enjoying reading through, and started rolling up a character to see how the process works. I created a Star Elf Champion, and I am somewhat confused on the Two Handed Sword (from his Noble background) and the requirement for a half action to ready. Am I reading it right that in order to not take the penalty, you could only attack every other round (RAW)?

Correct. Note, however, that the 2-H Sword also has the Mighty quality, which would cancel the penalty if the elf attacks without Parrying.

Obviously you could also go:

  • rnd 1: prepare and full parry (-20)
  • rnd 2: full attack +20
Do not meddle in the affairs of Wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
