uhm uhm... I must say... That was some unfortunate business there, with those birin today. I think the reason why you took so many projectiles was that you were the first to charge in. And, that last one you received in the head was a coincident, albeit and what must be noted, it was thrown from afar.
I actually agree to some extent, that something has to be done - you would not be in balance to throw a javelin when moving around, at least not in a circle with all those fast turns etc. May I suggest perhaps, in stead of being forced to stop (which would be silly, considering how you wouldn't be allowed to throw in a charge, with pace), that you be slowed down slightly both in movement and in turning-rate.
