Trivia for the Hammered
Welcome to Season One of Trivia for the Hammered, a weekly trivia event that takes the form of several 8-12 week long seasons with breaks between them. On top of our usual weekly winner there will be a seasonal crown to claim as well, with career points carrying over from each season.
I will send out 4 questions during the week via BCC. First correct pilot to answer me gains 3 points, second 2 points and all other correct answers gain you a point.
We tally up at the end of the week with the winner receiving a IS-BR.
The seasonal top-gun receives a IS-SR and there are also career IS-BR's at 50, 100, 350 points on offer.
This weeks round featured questions about the TIE Advanced series of starfighters and was largely sourced from Wookipedia. The result was closely fought between CM Witcher and our eventual winner, GN Coranel Both. Well done!

A1: TIE Advanced v1, or TIE/ad v1
Q2: Who tested the TIE Advanced x1 at the Battle of Yavin?
A2: Lord Vader
Q3: The TIE/Ad x7 (TIE Advanced x7) was a prototype for what other Imperial Starfighter? (LEGENDS)
A3: TIE Defender
Q4: The TIE/ad (also known as the TIE Avenger) was referred to with what nicnkname in Rebel piloting slang?

Hammer Crew Cruise
The Hammer is more than just it's pilots, we have a Star Destroyer to flesh out. Over the next 2 weeks you can come up with characters for our mighty ship, be it the chief navigator, the cook, the engineers, the janitor... you name it.
Submissions need to be at least 500 words long, and will be scored by the Commodore. The best submission will receive a IS-SR, second place receiving a IS-BR.
Note: If two pilots submit characters for the same position, we can modify them slightly after the competition.
All other competitions can be found here
