Obviously not Rap, but…

All the pictures you posted seem to have guys in low armor. Injuries are often inflicted (and are more serious) when a Brother is struck down to low health.

Including the above thoughts, perhaps you spun the RNG wheel poorly a few times in a row. I’ve hired a new recruit with 3 stars around, put him in the back row, and on the first battle, he took a crossbow bolt to the head and went down in one shot (He was wearing a rusty mail coif that was undamaged, and took about 50 points of armor piercing damage to the head).

Sometimes the RNG just smashes you.

Like Rap said though, nothing seems to be recently changed but the nighttime bonus reduction.
