Greetings pilots of the Hammer!
Welcome to this weeks Hammer Ship Report!
It's been a fairly good week aboard the ISDII Hammer, we have multiple competitions ongoing at squadron and ship level, which continue to see good turn-outs on top of the fleet wide competitions like the Trivia Grand Tour. As a ship we're also running close to capacity, so kudos to everyone who has been out recruiting as it really is a pleasure to see the bustling corridors.
Round Three of Trivia for the Hammered will be kicking off shortly, I was away last week with the family for an impromptu break which is why your inboxes were strangely let off the hook. We built this into Season Three by allowing ourselves more time than the 8 rounds would take, so rest assured we will yet determine which pilot aboard this ship has the most trivial knowledge.
As promised LC Genie and I have finished scoring up the August run of the Hammer Tour of Duty, and whilst the finer details can be found below I want to commend everyone who took part and congratulate our winner - LCM TheBlackxRanger and our runner up - LT andr3. Good luck to everyone taking part in this months Tour!
Hammered on the Hammer
I blackmailed heavily encouraged Phoenix to stop spending so much of the budget on personal Chalquilla and Twi'lek dancers and have been given authorization to start up a bar/grill/lounge on the Hammer. Now you degenerates upstanding, Imperial pilots can get drunk somewhere besides your cockpits. This competition has two parts and will take place over two months:
September - Create a bar/grill/lounge type area for the Hammer. It should be one that's utilized in-fiction by, at least, the entire TC (so not something that's just an Officer's Lounge). It should have a theme or a schtick of some type. Add a fun bartender or games or other features. There is a minimum submission length of 200 words for the bar/grill. Make sure to give it flavor and atmosphere (and maybe some humor), this is where you'll be drinking after all!
October - Create a signature drink or a signature meal for the winning bar/grill. I'm open to other consumables, but they need to be something that the winning bar/grill is known for. Submissions should be at least 50 words long. Make sure to give it some detail or a backstory of why it's the signature item.
Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and please make sure to put "Hammered on the Hammer" in the subject line.
Prizes are as follows for September:
1st - IS-GR and the bar/grill become an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
2nd - IS-SR and the bar/grill become an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
3rd - IS-BR and the bar/grill become an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
