  ISDII Hammer Commodore report #111 (11/24/2021)
This report was submitted by COM-SIMS/VA Phoenix Berkana/ISDII Hammer


TO: Pilots of the Hammer
FROM: Vice Admiral Phoenix Berkana
DATE: 2021-11-24
SUBJECT: Hammer Ship Report


Greetings pilots of the Hammer!

Welcome to this weeks Hammer Ship Report!

A number of medals have arrived during this last reporting period, as the final elements of the October evaluation round, with a assortment of Imperial Security Medals, Palpatine Crescents and Silver Stars finding their way into the medals cases of Hammer pilots. I also got to see several Gold Stars of the Empire be awarded for LC Genie, CM Gytheran, CM Solohan50, CM TheBlackxRanger and for the recently departed LT Wolve Excelsior Berkana. Well done to you all on securing that achievement!

There are several Hammer specific competitions that also warrant attention, the Hammered on the Hammer draws to a close next week and I know CM Solohan50 has received a couple of submissions but would always appreciate more. As a reminder this round of the competition requires you to come up with a drink for our Hammer bar that was created by CM TheBlackxRanger in last months round, you can find more details on competition specifics in the competition section of this report.

The Trivia for the Hammered enters its final round for the season - and with up to 12 points available we have a very tight leader board at the moment. I'm also very happy with the continued participation levels in this competition - 17 pilots took part in the last round with several others who drop in and out so I'll definitely look at when we kick off Season 4 or perhaps a Christmas special in the short term future.

Hammer Tour of Duty is also on the go, but is not ending next week so you do still have time to fly the battles mentioned below!

Enjoy the remainder of the week and for those of you located in the US, Happy Thanksgiving weekend.

Hammered on the Hammer
Your goal for October is simple - create a signature drink or a signature meal for The Drunken Bastion, TheBlackXRanger's winning submission from September. I'm open to other consumables, but they need to be something that The Drunken Bastion 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 your submissions to solohan50@gmail.com.

Prizes are as follows for October:
1st - IS-GR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
2nd - IS-SR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
3rd - IS-BR and the signature item becomes an official part of the Hammer canon and added to the Hammer website
And remember, Pilots, this is taking place during RtF, so you can possibly earn RtF points for the Hammer as well as participate in this! You can create art, create multiple signature items, or something else that I'm not thinking of! Please make sure to follow RtF submission guidelines if you wish to submit them for both competitions. I think that's all I have, so I look forward to reading your submissions!
