Things like this happen. We Ansteorrans are rumored to be Rhino Hiders
and excessive force hitters. I have friends in several other kingdoms.
One of which say anytime they get someone from us, they immediately
start calibrating them. He also says "Ansteorrans Hit HARD and call
Harder". I can verify from a few NR practices, we do hit hard, my helm
had several nice dents in it and it was new. I can also see in a Mass
Melee things getting a little.... out of hand. Who has time to target
someone over persona in Mass fighting?

My lady,
  The things you describe are over the top when it comes to melee
combat. I have been to Gulf Wars several years now and I have to say
that this was one of the most intense I have seen, especially on the
fields of armored combat. However, your descriptions of this being a one
sided issue are entirely out of line in my opinion. I was hit harder,
repeatedly after being dead, and from behind more times in that one week
than I had in the previous years put together. 
    To indicate that the force levels and level of intensity of this war
was entirely the doing of Ansteorra is not a fair assessment of this
situation. If this war was more rough upon the field than in years past
then I believe that falls onto the shoulders of all involved. This
opinion is mine and reflects no one else's experiences save mine. 
  Thank you,
