Paralysis is a magically-induced inability to move, caused by floating eyes, gelatinous cubes, shades and potions of paralysis. It can also be caused by Magicbane hitting you, as opposed to hitting a monster. As with other forms of immobility, it wears off after a specific number of turns (as opposed to moves).

Wearing a ring of free action protects against paralysis.

Monsters can also be paralyzed, e. g. non-reflecting pets fighting a floating eye. You can wake them up with nonmagical or uncharged drums or horns.

This is different from "paralysis" caused by a cursed spellbook or chatting with a skeleton, as a ring of free action will not protect against that.
