Knight of the Old Code

To be a Knight of the Old Code, one must be honor bound to the Old Code, which was best summarized by the Knight Bowen in the 1996 film Dragonheart. The Old Code is quoted out of an oath Bowen makes and is usually quoted as:

A knight is sworn to valor,
His heart knows only virtue,
His blade defends the helpless,
His might upholds the weak,
His word speaks only truth,
His wrath undoes the wicked.

I believe in such noble ambitions and strive to live the Code just as I strive to be temple worthy.  Obviously, I don’t carry a sword and wear armor, but in today’s world, we could use a few more people who live according to the Old Code.
