There are multiple versions of this mod. Due to upload restrictions on Steam workshop, there is only one version available here, which is this version:

Dual Wield Parrying_RandomAttacks.esp:
- You can parry with your right mouse button. Parrying works just like in vanilla
Skyrim, for as long as you hold the mouse button you keep parrying.
- You no longer have control over which attack you execute when striking with a single
weapon. This is controlled semi-randomly (sometimes you swing with left hand, sometimes
with right hand).
- This version is the ONLY version where EVERY SINGLE MOVE remains available, instead the
trade-off in this version is that you can't control with which hand you swing.
- In fact, a kind of ''extra move'' was accidentally added, which is a quick version of the
left hand power attack. It can be executed by pressing your left mouse button whilst blocking,
very much like how shield bashing works. It works very nicely to immediately counter after having
blocked an attack.

Other versions (including a more advanced version which allows for seperate hotkeys and allows players to block with other combos like weapon + spell, weapon + staff and fists) are available here: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=9247

Hey Ive tried out the dual wield parry mod, pretty cool stuff. However I had originally looked into it while trying to find a way to parry as a spellsword, vampire inspired and all that junk. Any idea where I can find such a mod that allows you to parry with your weapon while you have an active spell in the left hand? Or anyone whose good at making these mods take it into consideration to make one? cheers guys! :)

Other than that, this mod rocks. I used to get really frustrated when I couldn't block incoming attacks, so this works great!

Do you think you could add the ability to do a double-handed power attack? Like I don't mind having no control over which sword I'm swinging when I just want to do a single-handed attack, but sometimes I miss being able to swing both swords at the same time. I think maybe if you replaced that "extra move" (the one that's executed by pressing LM while blocking) with a double-handed attack, that would be better. I might do this myself, in fact. Don't worry though; I won't publish it.
