Welcome, brethren and sistren, to the First Hoplite Church.

No belief in any specific deity, or indeed any at all, is required.

The sole tenet of the Church (may it live forever) is that, since evil may be encountered anywhere, at any time, it behooves all to go forth equipped to defy it.

Be ye skilled or armed, or preferably both, for no-one knoweth whence the malefactor cometh, nor the hour of his coming.

- Bishop B.

A hoplite was a citizen-soldier of the Ancient Greek City-states. Hoplites were primarily armed as spear-men and fought in a phalanx formation. The word hoplite (Greek: ὁπ&#955 ;ίτ&#951 ;ς hoplitēs; pl. ὁπ&#955 ;ίτ&#945 ;ι hoplitai) derives from hoplon (ὅπ&#95 5;ον, plural hopla ὅπ&#955 ;α), the type of the shield used by the troopers,[1] although as a word "hoplon" could also denote weapons held or even full armament.

I'm not sure I can do spears. Will swords do?

Does this mean the stained glass doors at Castle Macumazahn need cleaning again?

Hey macumazahn!

Thought I would swing by and say HI!

I like the idea. Fighting against the bad things in society should be everybody's common goal regardless of what or any religious belief. Peace:)

I have a nice little dagger made in Toledo, Spain that I blooded myself. In fact, I blooded it ON myself quite by accident!

Well, here's your chance to use it in defense of the Castle. Nothing like Toledo steel that's already been blooded.

Full Irish breakfast available in the Great Hall. Nymph's whipping up some non-meat things at the other end of the table, just for the Vegan types.
Welcome to the Castle, all.

I volunteer to make breastplates for the women. I will need to take measurements, of course, and they will need to be extremely accurate, so please allow at least two hours per session.

What is a church without a sex scandal?

You do realize that this means our right to go about armed is now covered under the First Amendment as well as the Second?
