My patron God is Mars and I practice the Religio Romana. It's very cool to see others on here who are on the same path. :-)

I have always been interested in the Greek Pantheon but so far my studies have led to the Goddesses so I am glad I found this group to balance it all out.

Tell me what you all think as it is a subject I have serious qualms about. And that is the modern Olympic Games. Is it only me or do others think that they have come so far from the original ideal started by the Greeks that they no longer deserve to be called by the honourable name Olympic Games, which implies they are still being held in honour of the Gods of Olympus. They cost the host country a small (or large) fortune to hold, the overriding interest of both host country and competitors seems to be money and I think the original concept and ideals have been lost along the way of modern commercialism. Ideally, they would build a permanent site near Mount Olympus and hold the games there every 4 years and take the commercial aspects out of them. Instead of medals, what was wrong with a parsley wreath. Why should it be limited to professionals who stand to make a lot of money out of winning which means they will go to any means to get a medal, and the use of drugs demeans all those who take part. Because it seems to me that all you need to do is find a way to use drugs without being found out to win, and those honest enough to participate purely on their own merit and hard work are being discriminated against. I know that they are, hopefully, found eventually, but those who won all those years ago but have only just been stripped of their titles and medals have already reaped the unjust rewards for their cheating. They have taken the sponsorships and the money, and I haven't read anywhere that they have given this back or donated any of it to charity. So all it teaches is, cheat but don't get caught - at least until it is too late to lose out. Which is against everything the original games stood for. Does anyone else agree? I would love to hear from you.

Salvete. It is good to see that I am not the only one interested in the Roman gods, nor the only one in the SCA. But I would be interested in knowing if any of you also base your everyday dress on that of the Romans? I do in the summer (it gets too cold here in the winter and we don't have central heating in the house, average temp. indoors in winter is 8deg.Celcius) and I must admit that if I can find an affordable supplier of fine wool I would like to wear the tunica in winter as well. I find it incredibly comfortable and easy to wear, and only the palla attracts the occasional comment asking if I am muslim. Clothing a tunica, not a burka. I know many wear the appropriate clothes at events etc. but would love to hear if anyone also wears it on a daily basis and if so, how practical they find it and the comments (if any) they receive. I think that if you are going to subscribe to a particular way of life, in this case the virtues the romans were supposed to follow in their daily lives, then you should do it as much as possible. I appreciated that in the army that is probably a non-starter, on duty at least, but I wonder what they would think of a legionary during off-duty time?
