Well... I'm Ansteorran and that's a pretty decent explanation of how I
was taught to call a face shot (assumed chain drape and all - because
I've been shown that a spear point will go right through one of those).

My take on it was always that if I am careless or inept enough to leave
my face open and you manage to hit me there you deserve to win. I
mean... it's my *face* you know? A heavy edged blade striking me there,
even with minimal force, that's pretty debilitating. 

Face shot calibration has always been a rather regional issue in this
kingdom.  I imagine it is quite confusing to our opponents in any
multi-kingdom war, to have some of us call just a shade harder than a
touch and others calling almost full contact.
