Yes, I know you're an atheist.
A barbarian horde? How many make up a horde? Talk about hyperbole.As a man with family and friends near and dear, I find such foppish altruism to be repugnant. A man of respect defends his home and his family to the very last--he holds nothing back. The world has little need of the misshapen "honor" that sacrifices kin and comrades rather than venture into bloody battle with a barbarian horde.
