It is possible to Block for someone else, which is especially useful if you are trying to defend an injured or defenseless person from an attacker.
To do this, you must be in range of either the attacker or the target with a hand-to-hand weapon. If your attack is Short or Medium, you must be in the same hex or an adjacent hex to either; if your attack has a range of 1" or more, you must be within that range.
You perform your Block at a -2 OCV, as usual against the attacker's OCV. If it succeeds, the attack is Blocked.
