You're right. Mechanic trashed.

I have another weird dodge idea. You may start to dodge a melee attack if you make a Jumping skill check . Dodge is a move in a randomly chosen direction. If there's space there, you move there and dodge the attack. If there isn't space, the dodge was unsuccessful.

Well, something like that. Presumably you'd had to switch dodging mode on beforehand, and you couldn't try a normal parry if you were dodging.

But maybe it's too complicated. Something simple like "you may dodge instead of parrying if there's 5 open squares around you" might work better.

In all these ideas, it is presumed that Jumping score is usually higher than Parry.
