   That makes sense.  Thanks for the clarification.  8^)

   Very interesting.  Suggestions:
1. Lower the IQ prerequisite to 7.  This would allow character conceptions
of characters who have this talent /naturally/, and I think you don't have
to be smart at all to be trained to have it.
2. Consider allowing someone with this talent stopping one extra hit of
damage with a shield or main-gauche, since he /is/ using a shield in his
"good" hand.

   Here's a character to use as an NPC (or even a PC -- what do I care?  :)

   Father Paul is a paladin for the Holy Fighting Order of Naitri, which is
an island nation off the continent of Thail.  He is always on one mission or
another for the Christian Church, usually to find and bring to justice major
bad guys such as Tollenkar.  Father Paul started his adventuring career as a
"Blob", but has since earned some experience to increase his DX
significantly, and had magic items made to increase it even more.  To be a
complete paladin, Father Paul is interested in learned a few appropriate
spells, including Heal and Holy Bolt, so his next few attribute points will
be going into buying even more adjIQ.
   On horseback Father Paul fights with sword and shield, but leaves the
shield with his horse when fighting on foot.  His favorite dismounted combat
tactic is a two-handed sweep with his bastard sword (at an adjDX of 12).
Unfortunately he only has an adjDX of 11 for purposes of attack order, which
means he goes last in almost every fight.
   Father Paul leads a band of like-minded adventurers, including Sorag
(martial wizard), Marcos (weapon master), Norrad (big, dumb, fighter-type),
and Jana Gibney (front-line IQ 8 martial wizard, and the group's newest
member).  Sorag is on leave to practice more spell research, so Father Paul
will probably bring a decent archer specialist into the group.
