[Ansteorra] Hard hitters (was Re: Armor inspections at Gulf Wars)

Salut cozyns,

Actually, my experience suggests that Ansteorrans are about mid-level on 
both giving and taking. We do have some regional calibration differences 
within the kingdom, and of course, every kingdom has its heavy hitters.

Atlantians are at the high end of both giving and receiving. Midrealmers 
take hard leg and face shots. Gleann Abhann fighters tend to take pretty 
light shots, including anything that touches the face of a helm as a kill.

En Lyonel
Impedimentum via est
