Ah, I left out one point -- your blitz or defend number is limited to 1/2 of
your DX (round up). Sorry about that. That handles the problem that you
pointed out of letting really low DX characters abuse the system.

Also, the adjusted number does *not* affect striking order. So low-DX
figures that blitz *will* still get hit first by higher DX figures.

I do not add the blitz bonus for aimed attacks, though a more "realistic"
campaign might allow it. The effect would be to make blitzes very rare.
