I'm having some difficulty deciding how to arm the Thespian Hoplites. Should they have swords? or should they be the standard hoplite with a 7-foot spear?

here are two images to aid your decision:

thinking about it, the best option is a combo between spear and sword...but not that too long spear!!!it would be better one a little bit short

hm, i guess a combo would be cool, although that is the accurate length gor the dora.

Also, do you think they should be mercenaries or not?

ok so I suggest the combo, one quest: did you take these thespians from klaīs skin pack? cause I remember from his first pack that the spears were like this.

I recommend you to reduce their sizes

Voted sword, probably ahistorical but looks cooler somehow.
