I just joined a game of TF2 to find myself on some sort of castle map, with no guns allowed. What are the rules here, and what weapons are usable?

Looks like you've stumbled across the Medieval Mode map Degroot Keep.

Medieval Mode is a game mode added to TF2 during the Australian Christmas event with the December 17, 2010 update.

The game play is different with only non-ranged weapons (apart from bows or crossbows) allowed, amongst other changes including "Ye Olde English" for chat, for example:

"it was" gets replaced by "'twas"


It's Medieval mode, and no ranged weapons are allowed except for bows and crossbows. See the link for the full list.
