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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), message me on the site, or whisper me in game and I will do whatever I can to resolve the issue."
After months of hard work and dedication, Tau Squadron has finally killed Gate Commander Draxus in Nightmare Dread Fortress! Because of the tight DPS check we run a 1 tank 5 dps setup. Big congrats to Wrector for receiving our guild's first Unassembled Dread Master Headgear. Thank you to all that participated!
I've gotten a lot of positive feedback regarding members' desire for a guild ship, so I've decided to start a fundraiser. Keep in mind that a ship costs 50 million, and has 16 unlockable rooms for 5 million each; that's right, a whopping 130 million credits for a fully unlocked ship ...
Remember, none of this will happen unless people CONTRIBUTE. I may have over 50 million stashed away on all of my characters combined, but I have no plans to drop all of that on a ship ... So if you want a ship, give me money!
I started a poll to see how many people are interested in Guild Flagships and/or Guild Strongholds, please check out this thread. One thing to note, if we want them as a guild, we gotta pay for them, and they are by no means cheap (We currently have less than 4 million in the Guild Bank) ... Keep in mind that until I get enough positive response regarding this I will not approach Rapier with a proposal to get one for us; if you guys want a guild flagship, be proactive, talk among each other, and come to me with numbers! I'm not going to buy something that only 1 or 2 people will use ...
The strongholds thing is kind of a pointless credit sink in my opinion, but people have been clamoring for pointless credit sinks since launch. I am by no means opposed to the idea of Player Housing, because it's not forced upon us. I find them to be pointless so I will not pay for one, but that doesn't mean others shouldn't be allowed to buy one. So if you like housing and decorating, I think you'll have a lot of fun in this Game Update.
The only thing that I'm interested in is the Legacy Bank, but I do hope that Bioware lowers the cost of unlocking the tabs, because in its current form it is way ridiculously expensive. If they keep up the current price I'll just keep with the current inconvenience of mailing shit between alts.
It pleases me that we have had a decent turn out for my fun runs. I'd like to extend this farther to include Republic side raiding. So I encourage everyone to sign up and come out and have some fun.
31 July 2014 There is a raid this day even though it's not on the calendar. It's being funny and not allowing me to set up the event. If someone else can try and set up the event for that would be great. Anyway, the event is still there and we'll be running Scum and Villany HM that night. So go ahead and come out and have some fun.
05 August 2014 This will be another one of my experiments. So lets get those Republic characters leveled up and geared so we can start having fun in my traitor raids. If you are interested in Republic side raiding sign up, come out, and have fun. Mind you these runs will all be HM. There is no reason to do SM operations.
So with that I encourage everyone to come out and spread the word. I'd like to see more of the guild come out and participate in these runs. Oh and you get characters gear, and it's something to do. I know this will make for a heavy raiding week for those who are in Tau Squadron that come out this, but I want to start scheduling more events for the guild. So come out, get gear, and have fun.
I’m pleased to announce that we are extending the Cluster of Fire reward system to the Galactic Starfighter PvP event in Star Wars: The Old Republic. As of today you can submit screenshots of victories in Galactic Starfighter and receive a Cluster of Fire for a victory.
Consul Crsepe as well as the Dark Council will be evaluating the response to this new activity and the scoring systemto see if it needs adjustment at a later date. I’d like to hear from those of you that play Galactic Starfighter on ideas on how to develop this further. Is it too low of a threshold? Are you interested in events based around it? Would you like to be in or lead a Battleteam centered on this activity? Let us know your ideas as we move forward.
Good luck, have fun, and Darkness Defend,

We’re moving forward in the Dark Brotherhood and adopting Star Trek Online as a new platform for member activity. This effort has been spearheaded by SW Pellaeon and I have appointed him as Praetor to the Grandmaster to continue his excellent work on promoting and developing the game for our group. STO is a free to play MMORPG, features some excellent space combat, and has both regular content added and frequent in game special events.
We currently have several members already in our in game fleet and our Fleet (guild) resources are developing rapidly. If you’re already playing STO and want to join the Fleet to get recognized for your activity and get access to our Fleet resources simply message a Fleet member in game. SW Pellaeon’s handle is @Arcion and mine is @Tmontte, though any Fleet member that hold the in game rank of Lieutenant or above should be able to invite you. If you are having trouble joining, are new to the game and want to get involved, or just have questions in general I invite you to email me or message me on Steam (my Steam handle is [EH] Hitman ) and I’ll be glad to help out.
How do you earn rewards? Pellaeon will be tracking activty and submitting a monthly report to myself, MAA Elwood the Brave, and Consul Crsepe, along with recommendations for awards and promotions. Leveling your character(s), donating to the Fleet, Special Task Force Missions, Fleet Actions, and PvP will all be considered. We can track Fleet donations easily in game, everything else needs to be reported by you to Praetor Pellaeon via email. Attach screenshots wherever possible. As an additional note, PvP will also reward Clusters of Fire in addition to activity tracking. Any PvP screenshots should also be cc:ed to Consul Crsepe as well for Sword of Drakonan purposes and activity in STO will be rewarded on the same basis as activity on TOR for SoD.
As we move forward we’d also like to create Battleteams focused on STO, what form they take is largely up to you the members. You might have a team focused on clearing story content, or running PvE events (STO equivalent of Raids), or PvPing regularly, or even roleplaying. Find like minded individuals and we’ll help you get set up. Keep in mind that as these teams form, one member will need to assume the position of Battleteam Leader to assist in tracking activity, set up events and competitions, and forward rank and award recommendations to Praetor Pellaeon. If you’re interested in a leadership role in a particular activity for STO, let me know and we’ll get you set up.
I look forward to seeing you in game and showing the Universe that the Emperor’s Hammer is a force to be reckoned with, even in a galaxy not so far away.

July 3rd's Fun run is canceled for the time being, but if I see that people are still wanting to do something that night when I'm on I'll throw together a impromptu run.
On July 10th we'll pick up the the fun runs again with a trip into Scum and Villany. Please be geared in at least 69 gear and have stims. These are hard modes after all. Also adrenals are optional but highly advised for the Styrak fight.
On July 18th we will be doing something different a trek into Dread Fortress. That's right your eyes do not deceive you. I will be doing a test run into Hard mode Dread Fortress to see if I can add that to our roster of fun run options. Characters that you want to bring on this must be at least 72 geared or higher, must have stims, and must have adrenals. This is a no joke operation and shouldn't be taken lightly. There will be a 5 wipe limit and if we are even Semi-successful then I will start adding these on a regular rotation.
Four days from this post will mark the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Europe, better known in the west as D-Day. Although we are all here to have fun and spend our time enjoying ourselves, I would simply like to remind folks to take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices and heroism that those before us devoted in a cause to defeat oppression and tyranny. These feats where not only performed on this pivotal day, but by all who where struggling in the fight. If I may, let me put this into perspective. An 18 year old on 1944....would be 88 today. So, if anyone has "that" Grandfather, Great Uncle, Great Aunt, etc. I would urge you to at least bring the subject up before the stories are lost to history. Or, next time you stop in for a cold one....tactfully work your way into getting that member in your VFW or American Legion Hall to share their experiences before it is all lost. Not only may you hear a different perspective on something but you may even assist in the healing of a fellow veteran by allowing them to share their experiences.
This month we celebrate Kindrohi, His contributions to TAU squadron have been numerous and he is always ready to fill any role we need him to fill and he does it without complaint... thanks for all you do Kindrohi.
Hey guys, my power supply really died on me now and I can't get my pc running again. Atm no money to replace it so I won't be back on for a bit. I have no idea how long it will take to torture my husbands boss for the money he owes us. I'm sorry kiss
