Thanks Lev. That reminds me, think I recall the short article I read
saying something about them merging the parry and dodge skills. Something
that may have some value. In my RQIII campaign - my own fault i - I have
created a prescidence for people parrying and dodging using both their
compat movements. Nothing wrong with the tactic i suppose...
