Just a quick question regarding death on the battlefield, do we know how it works? Both for regular soldiers when you're going about your business but also with lords. Is there a calculation or damage threshold used to determine when a Lord or Lady gets the red skull of doom up in the kill feed? Is it all just random chance or do we know some of the numbers?

Random chance, reduced by Medicine skill and maybe some perks.

Speaking of the kill feed I've noticed the red means death and the white means incapacitated. I've also noticed the shapes of the skulls vary too. What do the variations of the skull shapes mean?

2% chance in battle & simulation for heroes, can be reduced with medicine skill.
100% chance in prison breaks for heroes.
