Hitman, don't forget it lacks raping whole villages (one should even be able to choose between women, cows and chickens), no gallows also made me sad, and don't forget Monty Python's Black Knight. YOU SHALL NOT PASS.
And if i can make a (serious) suggestion - make some restrictions in dodging. Maybe half a second to recover from it, cause i predict it can be much of a handicap for a player that would learn how to use it fast enough. I may be wrong, but >dodgedodgeblow< tactic would be pretty much lethal if there will be no delay between dodges. Also if Torn Banner would like the moves to be more realistic, learn from "Severance: Blade of Darkness". There is momentum, proper steps (no player-sliding), but it may be hard to make on that engine...and i think its too late for that suggestion ^_^ anyway, i highly reccomend duels in Severance, it still shines.
