Hey all,

First let me say I am humbled by all the hard work you all have put into this mod and I am greatly appreciative of all the content you have released!

i have a suggestion for you guys: Swords that you can equip in the shield slot that function as shields.

i was playing Oblivion with the immersive weapons mod and loved how that mod added off-handed swords and daggers. You couldn't attack with them and they just functioned as a shield, albeit with less protection than a normal shield. I loved this idea as it gave you the potential to still use your block skill if you were role playing a character that doesn't use a shield or wanted to simulate the dual wielding character. 

I would love to see this same concept applied to TR. These off-handed swords would function the same way as shields, but have the "skin" of a sword so as to give your character the ability to dual wield by using the block skill with the off handed weapon and attacking with your normal one handed weapon. Would be great for assassin and rouge role players. Their armour ratings would probably be worse than shields and their condition would probably be a little less too.

Let me know what you guys think and if this sounds like a good idea!

I don't know if this has already been thought of/considered so I just thought I'd post here.

Would not work well in Morrowind as blocking is dice roll and not something you can control.

Also vanilla doesn't do that, so it would be moddy if we did it.

I purchased a sword/shield item from a modded shop in "Balmora Expanded". It is named Shuang Dao and resembles a machete.

 It's pronounced Illlekeebog, or maybe I like bogs.

He proposed to add a shield that looks like a sword, if i understood him right. It is still a dice roll.
