Roll versus Sidestep

I’d like the option to sidestep instead of roll as my dodge move. Its more immersive.

A sword tip moves faster than a human body. Blocking and parrying with our weapons would be more immersive than dodging thrusts and slashes.

Don’t we have blocking now?

I agree, Parrying would be neat game mechanic.

It used to be that in heavy armor, you did a side-step instead of a roll. But this lost some of the benefits rolling granted, like being underneath the swing of most weapon arcs. So it was significantly more inferior than even the medium roll.
