The Emperor's Hammer is an organization of online Star Wars gaming fans founded in December 1994 dedicated to recreating the excitement and adventure of the Star Wars saga online. The Emperor's Hammer's beginnings were in the TIE Fighter and XvT game platforms. However, we now also support Knights of the Old Republic and several other EH Steam FPS games via several Groups/Teams.
Serve the Emperor above all others and good hunting...!
The Fleet Commander (Grand Admiral Rapier) manages the Emperor's Hammer on behalf of the Owner/Founder and the Emperor's Hammer, Inc. Board of Trustees.
The FC has full authority to manage this Site and our Membership in accordance with our Bylaws.
"I've been a member of the Emperor's Hammer for almost 16 years and in that time have done almost all there is to do and seen almost all there is to see in the EH...
What I want you to know is that if you have an issue with another member or in the way things are happening feel free to send me an email (email@example.com), message me on the site, or whisper me in game and I will do whatever I can to resolve the issue."

If you play a Star Conflict MP match together with other EH members or without any other EH mebers and your Team wins the match every DB member in your Team that had at least 1 kill gets a CoF.
As long as I don't hear about anyone abusing this rule I'll use it for deciding who gets a CoF and who's CoF request will be denied.
If a DB member is also member of another Subgroup of the Emperor's Hammer and has recceived or requested the respective MP medal in that Subgroup he can still get a CoF for that match in the DB, too. There is no actual reason or rule preventing that!
During my tenure as Grand Master I've been reluctant to take an apprentice and appoint a Deputy Grand Master. There have been many reasons why I didn't, including keeping people active. I had a whole stack of applications to sort through when I decided that ultimately I needed a DGM. All were fine candidates but the person I chose was truly outstanding. Someone I trust implicitly with both the care of the current Dark Brotherhood and its future course.
Its my great pleasure to announce that Sith Battlemaster Zephon is hereby promoted the rank of Dark Side Adept and appointed to the position of Deputy Grand Master.
I first met Zephon in TOR, briefly before he was called away to military service. What impressed me were his teamwork skills, ability to make any situation fun, and his easy going personality. Then I became further impressed as others talked of him often in his absence in a very positive light. Upon his return earlier this year Zephon not only rejoined TOR and quickly became a member of the elite Tau Squadron, he also became very active in non TOR gaming and fiction pursuits. He has always volunteered to help in any way he can, often taking duties willingly he isn't obligated to. He always has new ideas and enthusiasm for the Emperor's Hammer, our activities, and especially our members. He has a quick mind full of new ideas and looks forward to the future of the club and supports any efforts to develop toward a brighter future. To sum up, I'm mightily impressed with Zephon.
I'd like everyone, regardless of their primary interest in the Dark Brotherhood, to join me in welcoming the new Deputy Grand Master, and give him any assistance they can as he settles in. Often we talk about the honor of sitting on the Dark Council, in this case its our honor to welcome Zephon to it.

Tonight Tau Squadron scored another progression kill! HM Corruptor Zero from Dread Palace is officially downed. We've been working on this fight for the past few weeks and after tweaking the strategy we finally were able to kill him. For those of you who don't know, Corruptor Zero is the most difficult fight in Dread Palace, so look for us to kill Dread Master Brontes after the Thanksgiving holidays!
Big congrats to all who participated:
Tanks: Vaela'ven and Spetum (Rapier's Powertech)
Melee DPS: Sheytan and Aelallov (Kindrohi's Marauder)

Its my pleasure to announce two new games for official Emperor's Hammer activity! We now have Age of Empires II and Injustice Gods Among us available as EH platforms! A classic RTS that many of our members already play and the first ever EH fighting game.
I'd also like to let everyone know that we are now accepting non gaming night entries for several games to earn Clusters of Fire in the Dark Brotherhood. If you are playing either of the two new games (Age of Empires II or Injustice) or Empire at War or its expansion Forces of Corruption. Simply email a screenshot of your win to your Consul and cc: me and you'll get activity credit for playing and a Cluster of Fire for a win. If you are playing another EH member or members one screenshot will suffice for activity, but only the winner gets the Cluster of Fire.
The new games open opportunities for members to expand their playing and hopefully the new format will also alleviate some of the timezone concerns for our members that live outside of EH Standard time and allow them to become active and get credit for their activity. If this goes well we may expand the idea to current platform games like Killing Floor, Team Fortress II, etc. Let me know what you think.
