Greetings pilots of the Hammer!
Welcome all to this weeks Hammer Weekly Ship Report.
First and foremost, a warm congratulations on the two promotions we have this week - our newly minted Lieutenant Groshyr Grinfeld and Lieutenant Commander andr3 - well done and we're looking forward to following your careers with great interest. There have also been a number of Iron Stars being handed out for different competitions, so please head on down to the medals section to take a look.
On the competition front, the Hammer Tour of Duty continues apace, please remember to work on flying XvT TC1 - 20 as you only have nine days left to get those battle submissions in if you want to participate in the competition, rules can be found in the competition section of this report.
Our Trivia for the Hammered was also ongoing over the past week and was keenly contested with the winner shaking off two close pursuers! Finally a reminder that CM Solohan50 is running the Hammered on the Hammer competition, one where you get to write your own bar submissions. The September component of that competition only has 9 days left to run so if you want to take part get your submissions to CM Solohan50 as soon as possible.
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
